    Almost unbelievable that it's really been three years for this event. I've participated since August of 2005, and that itself seems long enough, so I my thanks goes out to those intrepid FReepers who started this FReep back in March of that year. With this in mind, we had a special FReep planned for the Three Year Anniversary. When I got there just before 6:30, our usual starting time, FReepers were already on our corners holding their signs! I got out the MOAB and we set to work Soon we had it up and the FReep truly began! On the...

  • Iraq, 3 years later

    Iraq: Three Years Later March 20, 2006 marked the third anniversary of the beginning of the war in Iraq. American forces quickly toppled Saddam's regime but, three years later, the war continues – as the U.S. faces a dire terrorist enemy that seeks to prevent democracy from coming to Iraq and to impose a tyrannical Sharia state on the Iraqi people. To mark the third anniversary of this center of conflict in our war on terror, we have assembled a distinguished panel to assess: how are we doing and where are we headewd? Our guests today are: Captain Chuck Nash,...

    The Tracy Press ^ | March 22, 2006 | Phil Hayworth
    Tracy 's support for war may be waning Phil Hayworth Tracy Press Have the deaths of five Tracy servicemen softened public support here for the war in Iraq? It’s difficult to tell. Most of Tracy’s 80,000 residents are transplants from somewhere else, and their sentiments about the war seem as amorphous as Tracy’s ever-changing demographics. The one stark fact is that Tracy has lost more servicemen per capita than any city in California: 6.25 per 100,000. “My feeling is that the people who cheered and yelled when the thing first started are not as gung ho as they once were,”...

    It's human nature to bury tragedies, to gloss over them, move on from them and maybe, in time, forget them. So horrified are we of the images of 9/11, that we've managed to sanitize 9/11. For the sake of those who died, we make only the vaguest references to "how" they died. We don't show the planes hitting the towers, or people jumping from those towers. We don't show the bodies being carried out, or the doomed firemen walking in. It's understandable. It's even respectful. But I think, it's wrong.

    The other day, Maureen Dowd, The New York Times's elderly schoolgirl op-ed queen, published a new collection. The jacket of Bushworld: Enter At Your Own Risk shows the eponymous Texan cowboy swaggering out from the White House, fingers hovering twitchily over his guns. That's how much of the West thinks of these past three years: It's Bushworld; the rest of us just live in it, involuntarily. The "so-called" war on terror is just a racket cooked up by George W. Bush's Halliburton cronies to boost their stock price and to enable Junior to work out some complicated psychological feelings re...

    America stood united again on Sept. 11. Three years after fanatics unleashed the worst terror attack in U.S. history, people around the nation paused yesterday to remember the horror - and the outpouring of strength and compassion that followed and is still helping to heal the wounds. In Iowa City, Iowa, 70,000 football fans rose in unison in a sun-drenched stadium to cheer a flag rescued from the rubble of Ground Zero and hail three New York City firefighters. Firefighters John Gaine, Ed Zeilman and Tim Kelly marched into Kinnick Stadium before the Iowa-Iowa State game in front of an...

    On this third anniversary of the tragic events of September 11, 2001, we have much more to be thankful for than some of our political leaders would have us believe. Islamist terrorism's global scourge has been unable to launch anything more than verbal tirades at America. And while the jihadists have won successes in lesser form — the train bombings in Spain that unseated a government, hostage-taking dramas in Iraq that forced minor players from the global antiterror team, and Iran's successful effort to sow divisiveness in the West about its nuclear ambitions while harboring much of al Qaeda's senior...

    IMAGES of war and terrorism have become an almost routine part of our daily news diet, suggesting the world is becoming an increasingly dangerous place. But, according to a raft of studies, surveys and reports, our planet is, in fact, enjoying one of its most peaceful periods in recent history, with the number of armed conflicts, battlefield deaths and weapons sales at their lowest for decades. The events of 11 September, 2001, were the most devastating of a series of terror attacks that have left thousands dead over the past three years and prompted wars in Afghanistan and, some might...

    BOSTON - Recalling the pain of the 2001 terrorist attacks and the "countless acts of bravery and kindness" that followed, Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry (news - web sites) said Saturday that Americans will tell their children and grandchildren that their love of country "far outshines the darkness of those who hate." "We learned in the hardest way possible that the American spirit endures. It is that spirit which leads us to defy those who would harm us, and affirm that freedom will win," Kerry said in remarks prepared for a Sept. 11 memorial service attended by victims' families. "It...
