Please urge Americans in other countries to assemble at emabassies and consulates and demonstrate on Sept 24 and request meetings with Ambassadors and other staff on Sept 26 to express the need to end America's illegal war on Iraq, remove all troops from Iraq, remove all American mercenaries from Iraq, halt all American corporate control of Iraqi resources, and begin the process, via the UN and other agencies to pay the retribution for the devastation caused by Bush and the neoconsters illegal war on Iraq.

Peace,
UL

Cool! And, even though Islamic terrorists know exactly where you wackos will be congregating, you don't have to worry about a suicide bomber attack. Islamic terrorists love liberals, and want you to keep working for their cause.

What are you talking about...Bush is their man. He is the best recruiter Islamic terrorists could ever hope for.

All propaganda. The funds of US citizens should be used for our country and its citizens.

I understand. It's galling for you to see the good news. So, you dismiss it as propaganda.

This news seems factual. But, don't expect liberals to report or believe ANY good news.

"Good News" whether valid or not does not change the fact that America was lied to and deceived by our Commander in Chief. I hope everyday that there is good news and progress in Iraq and that it becomes a stable country. That has nothing to do with demanding that Bush be held accountable for his lies. We are not talking about sex lies...these were lies that killed thousands of people. If Iraq becomes a shining democracy (however unlikely)it does not excuse the lies and deceit that were used to get us there.

If protecting Iraqis from a brutal dictator and bringing democracy to their country is the "noble cause", then why didn't Bush go to congress and seek approval for military invasion using that as justification? Why did he have to "fix the facts" about WMD's and create the imminent threat of a mushroom cloud and attempt to connect Iraq to 911? He had to because he knows Americans are not going to send their sons and daughters off to die so Iraqis can vote. All lies should be exposed...but the consequences of these lies are so signifigant that ignoring them is not an option for people who honor integrity and honesty. But contrary to your accusations, I would love to get "good news" from Iraq and I am still waiting.
