We Are Better Than This
War is hell. There is no question about that. However, that doesn't mean, within all that chaos, there aren't rules. Rules of engagement. And Rules on Interrogation. Rules on Prisoners of War.
I understand the rage that we felt on 9/11. I understand the rage that we felt when we saw the contractors bodies dismembered and burned surrounded by jubilant Iraqis. But what I don't understand is the actions of these Soldiers. It is wrong in any society. But in ours it is even MORE so. We are better than that.
There are those who say, these people would kill us if they had the chance. That could be true. But that doesn't mean we stoop to their level. These images will resonant in their world. Even if the logic doesn't make sense. We can't allow ourselves to bottom dwell.
There is a very real problem that exists when you set up a situation where you no longer have a clear mission. A year ago Bush stood on an Aircraft carrier, claiming "Mission Accomplished". What Mission? Re-election? Furthering his Right Wing agenda? Finally making Daddy proud?
As a nation, we are better than this. In Vietnam, similar atrocities would come out and bleed into the Anti-War rhetoric. Vets would return home to screams of "baby killers". Not all of our soldiers are committing such atrocities. But we have to nip it in the bud NOW.

Why Ann Coulter is a Lunatic?
Sometimes you have to read the rantings of this lunatic to get a full grasp of the battles that we are raging in our world. We are not completely split 50/50 of lunatics to normal people. Or wait does it? 25 per cent of our country are RIGHT WING/Christian Fascists. 25 % of the count are Left Wing/Wiccan/Communists. 25 % are Moderate Democrats. 25 % are Moderate Republicans. I don't know if those percentages are right. But I'm sure it's pretty close to that. These are the rantings of the Republicans, who want to abridge your civil rights, because they think that would have prevented 9/11.
What COULTER and the rest of the Republican NEO-Fascists don't understand, is that you can't strip naked and put electrodes on the genitalia of every Middle Eastern Muslim who gets on board an airplane. That's saved for Military Interrorgations in Iraq. You can't discriminate your security policies based on whether you are Muslim or Christian. Whether you black, yellow or purple. If Grammaw has a problem with getting pulled out of line, so be it. How do we know that Grammaw hasn't been reading Tolstoy?
What these Right Wings nuts want you to forget about is that we are just as susceptible to dangers from ANGRY WHITE GUYS like Timothy McVeigh as much as Mohamad Atta. Or was McVeigh railroaded? Or was he just a pawn in Al Qaeda's greater plan. The failures of 9/11 had as much to do with lack of communication between the FBI and CIA as it did screening out plastic box cutters. Zacharias Moussaoui didn't look like Mohammad Atta, so he would have gotten aboard the airplanes that day. Or should we stop black Muslims too. I guess Muhammad Ali is screwed. Thank you Ann Coulter, for once again proving that you are a LUNATIC. Although, I'd still bang you.
HammLinks: Around The Web Today
Some fun stuff today around the web. One in particular I'm still trying to get my arms around this:
> Another official, the center's manager, asked the controllers to make the tape because "he wanted a contemporaneous recordation of controller accounts to be immediately available for law enforcement," according to the Mead report, and was concerned that the controllers would take a leave of absence immediately, which is standard procedure after a crash.
I had NO idea Don King was working for the FAA. I find this "contemporaneous recordation" --- YOUR FLY IS OPEN.
