Rather long when documenting the experience and qualifications of Bush and his War Cabinet--but worth a read to get to the "qualifications" of his Hollywood and celebrity critics. Send to Saddemocrats.

I've seen this a number of times now. It sure is good.

I wish they'd expand on the educational backgrounds of these few, and reveal the backgrounds of many others.

I have alot of friends who are alumni of the University of Dayton. They are glad Martin Sheen does not share that distinction.

I know it's a no-brainer, but when Elizabeth Taylor said this week, "I am worried about us going in to Iraq. I mean, they're going to bomb the sh*t out of us!", she revealed herself to be just another loony brained, limosuine liberal who'd rather get attention for a cause than trying to do something about it.

What is really asinine, is that pretending to be someone, pays better than being someone.

When you watch TV, your IQ goes down. It has to go somewhere, doesn't it?

Those Evil Americans And Their Expensive War
By Linda A. Prussen-Razzano
www.american-partisan.com
March 7, 2003

Lost amidst the rhetoric of America’s impending war with Iraq are facts, facts, pesky little facts. Instead of offering a comprehensive and compelling argument against protecting America from Iraq’s existing threat, the airwaves are filled with the mindless twaddle of people like Ms. Sarandon, whose initial claim to fame was being the semi-dressed repository of Tim Curry’s perverted pleasures.

Oh, yeah, honey, I’m taking you seriously.

Unlike you, Suzie, I actually take the time to read Congressional Research Services reports and Department of Defense Reports. I actually understand a Nuclear Threat Assessment report when I dig one up on the web. I actually recognize that the World Theater is no place for amateurs and the stage is often littered with bodies before the curtain fails.

So allow me to point out just a few of those pesky little facts you conveniently chose to ignore:

(1) “On September 22, 1980, Iraq invaded Iran, starting an 8 year war in which Iraq employed chemical weapons against Iranian troops and ballistic missiles against Iranian cities.

(2) In February 1988, Iraq forcibly relocated Kurdish civilians from their home villages in the Anfal campaign, killing an estimated 50,000 to 180,000 Kurds.

(3) On March 16, 1988, Iraq used chemical weapons against Iraqi Kurdish civilian opponents in the town of Halabja, killing an estimated 5,000 Kurds and causing numerous birth defects that affect the town today.

(4) On August 2, 1990, Iraq invaded and began a 7 month occupation of Kuwait, killing and committing numerous abuses against Kuwaiti civilians, and setting Kuwait's oil wells ablaze upon retreat.

(5) Hostilities in Operation Desert Storm ended on February 28, 1991, and Iraq subsequently accepted the ceasefire conditions specified in United Nations Security Council Resolution 687 (April 3, 1991) requiring Iraq, among other things, to disclose fully and permit the dismantlement of its weapons of mass destruction programs and submit to long-term monitoring and verification of such dismantlement.

(6) In April 1993, Iraq orchestrated a failed plot to assassinate former President George Bush during his April 14-16, 1993, visit to Kuwait.

(7) In October 1994, Iraq moved 80,000 troops to areas near the border with Kuwait, posing an imminent threat of a renewed invasion of or attack against Kuwait.

(8) On August 31, 1996, Iraq suppressed many of its opponents by helping one Kurdish faction capture Irbil, the seat of the Kurdish regional government.

(9) Since March 1996, Iraq has systematically sought to deny weapons inspectors from the United Nations Special Commission on Iraq (UNSCOM) access to key facilities and documents, has on several occasions endangered the safe operation of UNSCOM helicopters transporting UNSCOM personnel in Iraq, and has persisted in a pattern of deception and concealment regarding the history of its weapons of mass destruction programs.

(10) On August 5, 1998, Iraq ceased all cooperation with UNSCOM, and subsequently threatened to end long-term monitoring activities by the International Atomic Energy Agency and UNSCOM.

(11) On August 14, 1998, President Clinton signed Public Law 105-235, which declared that `the Government of Iraq is in material and unacceptable breach of its international obligations' and urged the President `to take appropriate action, in accordance with the Constitution and relevant laws of the United States, to bring Iraq into compliance with its international obligations.'.”

All of these grievances were listed under House Resolution 4655, which passed unanimously by a voice vote in the Senate, by a vote of 360 to 38 in the House, and became Public Law 105-388 under President Clinton. Even Fox News contributor and staunch anti-war hack Charles Rangel voted for it when Clinton was at the helm. Heck, even your beloved impeached one had a fleeting moment of insight when he signed it.

So when you have the audacity to ask what Saddam has done, does this answer your inane question?

I just received this from a former student of mine. My comments may be born of pre-brunch Screw Drivers, but here goes: Has anyone started a campaign with the following objectives?

1. Contact, in some form or fashion, the Hollyweird types and let them know our displeasure with their stances.

2. Generate/support a nation-wide boycott of ALL media/shows/movies from which these idiots might benefit financially. Seems they believe the only thing that matters is the size of one's paycheck. If their paycheck is drastically reduced, perhaps they'd rethink their positions.

TV makes you look 10 lbs heavier and 10 IQ points smarter. But, it's just an optical illusion.
