08-26-07 - US photographer shows grim face of troops wounded in Iraq "I started working on it out of exasperation at not seeing any visual representation of the human cost of war.

08-26-07 - Bogus War Party Propaganda This weekend on, Justin Raimondo?s Behind the Headlines column ?Home Front ?Surge?: War Party?s Ad Campaign Will Boomerang,? concerns the Israel Lobby?s pushing of $15 million worth of propaganda ads to run on TV, shaming the Democrats for their supposedly weak Stay in Iraq Forever policy.

08-26-07 - Video: Portion from CNN"s "God's Jewish Warriors" This is a perfect example of the power of the Israeli Lobby in America - and this happened 15 years ago or so. This is the kind of 'conspiracy theory' that the AIPAC/ADLers want you to believe doesn't exist. Good info about Baker and Bush (the first) and their efforts to stop the settlements. Features Mearsheimer and Carter. Note the utter bs that America and Israel have the same interests in the ME. America is against illegal settlements, Israel is for. Includes info on Christian Zionists and their role in this. One obvious point in all this: If Israel's and America's interests were the same, then THERE WOULDN'T BE A NEED FOR AN ISRAELI LOBBY IN AMERICA. Our interests are NOT the same. Not by a longshot.
