    What to do about Iraq? Rich Perry announced that he would redeploy US ground forces in Iraq and immediately fierce debate broke out on the wisdom of such a course of action. Ron Paul has been hampered for saying “they attack us because we are over there” while Rick Santorum contends that “they attack us because of who we are”. Huntsman sides with Paul, “We’ve done what we can do, folks. I say I want to bring our troops home.” Romney seems willing to go back into Iraq and Newt seems less willing. Clearly GOP policy on Iraq and indeed...

    An al-Qaida-linked extremist group warned Pope Benedict XVI on Monday that he and the West were "doomed," as protesters raged across the Muslim world to demand more of an apology from the pontiff for his remarks about Islam and violence. The Mujahedeen Shura Council, an umbrella organization of Sunni Arab extremist groups that includes al-Qaida in Iraq, issued a statement on a Web forum vowing to continue its holy war against the West. The authenticity of the statement could not be independently verified. The group said Muslims would be victorious and addressed the pope as "the worshipper of the cross"...

    Does anyone know where we can purchase Pro-war with iraq bumperstickers? Maybe we can get freerepublic to have some. One site I went to said they sold 200,000 "attack iraq?No!" bumperstickers. I could probably modify that sticker.

  • McDermott accuses Bush of plotting to be Emperor

    U.S. Rep. Jim McDermott broadened his attack on George W. Bush's war plans yesterday, saying the president is threatening military action in Iraq as part of a plot to crown himself emperor of America. Criticized for saying on a trip to Iraq early last week that Bush would mislead the American public, McDermott, a Seattle Democrat, was back in his district yesterday telling cheering supporters that Bush is planning a war to distract voters' attention from domestic problems. He said Bush is trying to "submarine" efforts to restart weapons inspections in Iraq to give him a pretext for starting...

    NEW YORK, Oct 7 (AFP) - Tens of thousands of people, led by some top Hollywood stars, demonstrated on the streets of the United States' largest cities to protest President George W. Bush's US plans to invade Iraq. In New York on Sunday, at least 15,000 people gathered in Central Park to denounce Washington's stance towards Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein, including Oscar-winning movie star Susan Sarandon and her actor husband Tim Robbins. Sarandon, star of hit films such as "Thelma and Louise" slammed the Bush administration's alleged bellicose policy as "madness ... a war that would kill hundreds of...

    I went to the Jim McDermott Town Hall Meeting in Seattle today. A handful of FReepers were there with some excellent signs ("Go back to Bagdhad"). Unfortunately the vast majority of those attending (at least 250) in the packed room were gung-ho supporters of McDermott. Jihad Jim literally spent the entire 1 1/2 hours of his meeting bashing the USA. He said that the war on Iraq was merely a ploy by President Bush to distract the American people from the economy. He spoke of dying children in Iraq and polluted water and blamed the US. In fact he blamed...

    The Washington State Puget Sound Chapter AFTER RALLY Report on Baghdad Jim McDermRAT and the Seattle Anti-War march was a great success! We arrived at Baghdad Jim’s Town Hall meeting. When McDermRAT arrived we surrounded him and called out “Stay in Baghdad” and held up signs. The sign I was especially proud of read:”Saddam GOODBush BAD”This is Bagdad Jim’s mind on drugs. LOL The quotations marks drove the lefties up the wall because they said they weren’t his exact words. I suggested they get over it. Patriot62, his friend, father, and 3 of my GOP friends were present. We asked...

    SEATTLE - More than 5,000 people marched from Seattle's Capitol Hill neighborhood to Westlake Center downtown Sunday, protesting the Bush administration's policy toward Iraq. Congressman Jim McDermott addressed the crowd, telling protesters that Bush is out for war. In a short speech, the Seattle Democrat didn't talk about his recent trip to Baghdad, for which he was heavily criticized by some conservatives. Afterward, he said his critics have nicknamed him "Jihad Jim" because they have nothing intelligent to say. There were a handful of pro-Bush supporters at the rally. One person carried a sign reading: "Jihad Jim loves Saddam."

    I Walked into a Crowd of War Protesters with my Sign BOMB IRAQ A few hours ago I was driving down my main street and I saw war protesters lined up in the commons protesting the up coming war with Iraq. I pulled around and parked in the parking garage and walked up to main street to a office supply store and purchased a poster board and marker and made my sign. I sat in the aisle and made the sign. I walked out to the protesters and unfolded the sign and stood there. You would of thought a army...
