A.N.S .W.E.R.'s response to Bush:
Hit the Streets September 24!

Recognizing that the people of the United States have turned dramat ically against the war and occupation of Iraq, Bush went on national televi sion tonight to defend his imperial foreign policy. He repea tedly invoked September 11 as a pretext for the criminal and illegal war ag ainst Iraq. Bush took to the airwaves tonight because the antiwar m ovement is growing in strength. Our power poses a major poli tical obstacle to the continuation of the war and occupation. Now Bush has taken on the additional role of Recruiter-in-Chi ef, urging young people to sign up for military service and r eplenish the dwindling ranks of the newly enlisted.

Tonight Bush's speech was before a military audience. It comes twenty-fi ve months after he used a military audience as a photo-opportunity. At that time, May 1, 2003, Bush landed aboard the USS aircraft carrier Abraham Lin coln to announce, under the boldly painted banner, "Mission Accomplish ed," that major combat operations had ended in Iraq. Now with the blood of 100,000 dead Iraqis and more than 1,700 U.S. soldiers on his h ands, and a population that no longer believes his recycled ratio nales, Bush is compelled to justify the ongoing military conflict and occupation in Iraq. With the old pretexts - that is, the old lies - so completely exposed, Bush tonight resorted to the consta nt referencing of September 11.

The A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition (Act Now to Stop War & E nd Racism), which has organized the largest mass antiwar demonstrat ions in Washington DC during the last four years, was formed on Se ptember 14, 2001. A.N.S.W.E.R. represented the convergence of those or ganizations and individuals around the country (numbering in the tens of thousands) who immediately took to the streets to expose Bush's manipulation of September 11 and oppose the slogan of  "war on terrorism."  This mobilization took place at a time when there was great pressure within the U.S. peace movement to be silent and not speak out against the coming imperial ist war drive. All those who stood together in those early days of September have since reached out to their friends, families, neighbors, classmates and co-workers to successfully educate others, to broaden and expand this mass antiwar movement. Now we are ready to take the next step.

On September 24 in Washington DC there will be a mass mobilization at the White House. There will be coordinated actions at the same time in San Franci sco and Los Angeles. This demonstration, initiated by the A.N.S.W.E.R. Coal ition and now joined by thousands across the country, is coming together at  the critical moment for our movement. Waiting for the politicians is a dead end. The people must act and deepen the popular antiwar sentiment un til it becomes the most potent force in the current political equation.

The September 24 demonstration will have its place in his tory not only as an expression of the changing political climate in the U.S. but also as an expression of great unity. Marching together and sharing leadership on September 24 will be Arab-Americ an and Muslim communities, unions, military families, veterans, students an d youth, and antiwar, social justice and civil rights groups. The September 24 National Coalition has formed to work together in solidarity and suppor t for this important demonstration. Urge your friends to join in th is important united effort and show the world the power of our rapidly deve loping peoples' movement. Rejecting the right-wing's efforts at division, the people can become the most powerful political force - and that is Bush's greatest fear.

What you can do right now:
Six ways to get involved and make a difference

1) Send this email to your friends and families. Ask them to endorse the demonstration and join w ith millions of others in the U.S. who now oppose the war in Iraq and want it to be brought to an end. Sign up to get critical email updates on the mobilization and how you c an plug in.

2) Start organizing people to come with you to Washington DC on Septembe r 24. Help spread the word to others about transportation options from your city by filling out the Transportation Form on the A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition website.

3) Contact the A.N.S.W.E.R. office for a free packet of organizing mater ials - flyers, posters, stickers and more - so you can start handing t hem out, leaving stacks, and posting them wherever you can: on bulletin boa rds, at school, at work, in the supermarket, your local cafe, your church, mosque or synagogue. Download flyers from the A.N.S.W.E.R. website.

4) Join a street outreach team this weekend or organize one in your town. In Washington DC email dc@intern ationalanswer.org or call 202-544-3389, in New York City email nyc@internationalanswer.org< /FONT> or call 212-533-0417, in San Francisco email sf@internationalanswer.org or ca ll 415-821-6545, and in Los Angeles email la@internationalanswer.org or call 323-464-1636. If you live in another city, e mail info@internationalanswer.org for details and tips on how to get started.

5) Please make a donation today - we urgently need your help to bring this war to an end. The Bush administration has billions of dollars that they have taken from us to fund their war and line the pockets of war profiteers. It is up to us to fund the fight for true justi ce and peace.

6) September 24 - 12 noon - White Hous e - BE THERE!

The leadership of the September 24 National Coalition includes the A.N.S.W.E.R Coalition, National Council of Arab-Americans (NCA ), Muslim American Society (MAS) Freedom Foundation, Haiti Support Network, Alliance for a Just and Lasting Peace in the Philippines, National Lawyers Guild, Al Awda: The Palestine Right to Return Coalition, Mexicanos Sin Fro nteras / Mexicans Without Borders, Women's Anti-Imperialist League (WA IL), and A.N.S.W.E.R. Youth and Student National Coalition.

The Commies at ANSWER send me an email about Sept 24th about once a week. Most I don't post as they are tiresome and depressing.

But this one I found particularly egregious and reprehensible.

See y'all in Wash DC on the 24th.

Well, we could always "signup" a bunch of people using fake addresses and have these pukes mail our "friends" their hate mail.

At least we'd have the satisfaction that we contributed to keeping the Post Office working, and that it cost those Commies a few pennies per mailing.

First of all since Prez Bush announced he was gonna give that speech in Fayetteville NC yesterday the LIEberal MSM here has been hyping as fact that even the Military town of Fayetteville is DIVIED on the war.

Well YESTERDAY the rubber hit the road!

Number of protesters at Fayetteville LIEbeal call to arms, opps, protest, FIFTY!!!

MoveOn etc is just part of the new LEFT BEHIND series acted out daily by average Americans.

Don't be fooled into thinking that these LIEveral groups have any support outside of their own BLUE Counties.

ROVE called Dems out and they are exposed!

I went to one probably less than two years ago. There were maybe 300 of us at a pro-troops rally, and then 100 or so of us wandered down to confront the hippie masses. There were literally thousands of them, but the police had barriers erected and a strong presence. Lots of screaming and shouting by this "peace-loving" crowd, but I had a blast.

Even got my ugly mug on the evening news. :-) (Gotta give credit to the local NBC affiliate, Ch. 4, who did a nice job presenting both sides of this story.)

It's all kinds of fun - put it on your calendar! I may recycle my original sign from the first one of these in Sept 01, that says "Peace Through Victory - Not Surrender".

Yes, these vicious little vermin were protesting a war that hadn't even started yet, less than three weeks after September 11th, in one of the cities that was attacked.

They're just Vietnam protestor wannabees.

wish I could be there - my prayers for all Patriots & Freepers attending.

sidenote on ANSWER: not that we need any convincing on this hate-America organization, but remember... ANSWER came into existence 4 days AFTER 9-11... see: http://www.internationalanswer.org for their core value declaration.

While the nation was still in shock, just before the victimology-Euros started locking elbows en masse in their pitiful, hand-wringing "we are all Americans" platitudes, and well before America - led by our Great President Bush - unsheathed the sword. Plainly put, their organization is not a grass-roots peace effort that grew as a reaction to military initiatives; their core mission has been, is and will always be to weaken America. They are vile, and enemies to all Patriots and freedom-loving men.

Those "americans" who follow ANSWER's banner are no countrymen of ours... they are traitors, pure and simple.

He repeatedly invoked September 11 as a pretext for the criminal and illegal war against Iraq.

I still don’t understand how these anti-American hate groups can say the current war is “criminal and illegal”.

We only had about a dozen of us FReepers show up to counterprotest an A.N.S.W.E.R. demonstration in February '03 in Houston.

A dozen of us and about 4,000 of them. And our presence really pissed them off. I'm serious...we threw a quite a damper on their little love fest.

Below is an email from Moveon.com to its anti American jihadists.

Between the two emails, we can see the coordination of the MSM with these anti America groups.

Below is the Email sent out from Moveon.com to rabid rats on how to counter GW's speech tonight.

email from MOVEON.org, LTE attack plan for Bush's speech
Date: Tue, 28 Jun 2005 12:53:38 -0700

Bush Iraq speech tonight -- push back hard.

Tonight, President Bush will make a nationally televised address hoping to revive falling public support for his failed Iraq policies. This is an important opportunity to get a letter to the editor printed since newspapers are almost certain to print letters this week. Get started using our easy, online tool.

Dear MoveOn member,

Tonight at 8:00 p.m. ET, President Bush will speak to the nation about the war in Iraq in a televised address. Despite the car bombs and rising attacks, he's expected to offer no new policy-in fact, he's expected to say that we're making progress, that everything is going just fine.

Over the last week, we asked you to vote on whether we should work together in a major campaign to get Democrats and Republicans in Congress on board with a responsible exit plan. As of this morning, hundreds of thousands have voted and the results are clear: more than 83 percent said you were in. Together, we're ready to tell our leaders that it's time to come home.

One good first step is letters to the editor. Bush's speech tonight will be one of the major "tipping point" moments since the war began, and we can help make sure that no one buys his "stay the course" rhetoric.

Politicians will be watching the letter-to-the-editor pages closely, and newspapers are likely to print letters on what will be the major story of the week. If we're able to push back hard enough, we can build a drumbeat for a real exit plan.

We've set up an online tool that makes submitting a letter easy. Tonight, you can watch President Bush's speech and then immediately go online and write a letter to the editor by clicking below. (We'll update our suggestion
for the best thing to write about 30 minutes after his speech ends.)

http://www.moveon.org/r

You might have noticed that Republicans like Karl Rove, White House Communications Director Dan Bartlett and Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld have tried to distract the country from Bush's disastrous Iraq policy by attacking MoveOn by name on TV. Rove was trying to put Democrats and MoveOn on the defensive, painting us as weak on security. But it didn't work-we held strong, and with your help we can make sure that the attack backfires. Lying about MoveOn can't solve Bush's problem-that he has no plan for Iraq.

And there is broad public support for a real plan. Two-thirds of the public say they would support elected leaders who stand up to President Bush and insist on a real plan to get out of Iraq. That makes sense: without an
exit plan with a timeline, we'll be stuck in Iraq for years and years, exacerbating the problems there.

As General John Abizaid, Commander of the U.S. Southern Command said last week testifying in front of the Senate,
"too much of a footprint in the region creates more resistance." But, believe it or not, Bush and Rumsfeld reject the very suggestion of a timeline. Rumsfeld
said on Sunday we could be in Iraq another 10 years. But their voices are the only ones being heard right now. That is why we all need to get a well-reasoned argument for an exit strategy with a timeline out there.

Please take just a couple of minutes to write your letter to the editor today.

http://www.moveon.org/r?r=

Today's letters to the editor are just the beginning. We're also starting national television advertising and running an ad in The New York Times that carry this message: "It's time to come home. We went in the wrong way, let's come home the right way." With your help, we'll keep that going and expand the push into the cities where it will make the most difference.

More on how to help do that tomorrow.

Public opinion has turned on President Bush's reckless war policy, but most leaders in Washington still aren't speaking out. That's why our work together is so important. Together, we can show the way toward a
responsible exit plan and a more peaceful and secure world.

Thank you for all you do,

-Tom, Jennifer, Justin, Micayla and the MoveOn PAC Team

P.S. Here are the points you can make in your letter or when you're talking to friends, family and colleagues.

It's time to start responsibly coming home from Iraq.

Iraq is no closer to stability than it was a year ago. Things keep getting worse every week. More than 1,700 Americans have been killed and more than 12,000 wounded.
The U.S. occupation is fueling a growing insurgency. Our presence is exacerbating the problem. There are tens of thousands of insurgents backed by hundreds of thousands of supporters.

We got into this war based on lies-the wrong way. It's time to get out the right way. The first step is to realize that the Bush policy is out of touch with reality.

We need a real exit plan with a real timeline providing real accountability for our leaders. We need to turn control of the training of Iraqi forces and the rebuilding of Iraq to the international community. And we must renounce permanent military bases in Iraq because that angers the Iraqi people.

See y'all in Wash DC on the 24th.

Sounds like I'll be taking a roadtrip. Looking forward to it!

About a month ago a lib on DailyKos put it quite nicely...

"the problem with Democrats; if we don't like something, we stage a protest. When the Republicans don't like something, they get lots more of them elected and change it. When will we learn our lesson?"

Unless and until we start dealing very harshly with those openly committing sedition and therefore encouraging the insurgents in Iraq, those insurgents will continue to be emboldened by the leftist insurgents in America. They will continue to delay democracy in Iraq and will continue to kill our American soldiers. The anti-American insurgents in this country are bound and determined to undermine the war effort, just as they did during Vietnam, and ensure that we don't lose this one in Iraq, but that we lose the war at home. This can't be allowed to happen. The only way to stop it is if there is a major crackdown on these seditious pukes and the organizations behind them.
