President Bush supports the troops, commits suicide (we wish!)

The fervent hope of millions around the world that George Bush's next conversation with God will be "come to Jesus - right now."

In honor of Armistice Day, if George Bush could exit along with the day, outside the immediate improvement who would notice the difference? Nobody, not even Laura.

Former U.S. Marine Matt Howard explained at an antiwar rally why he was against the illegal Iraq War. In part, it was because they invaded a country illegally; killed innocent men, women, and children; killed livestock; destroyed homes; tortured prisoners.

The Chicago Sun-Times reports that veterans organizations against the Iraq War will not be allowed to participate in Veterans' Day marches. In response to brainless flag-wavers who cry that our armies are fighting over there to protect us and our freedoms over HERE, refer them to the file "MORE LIES YOUR GOVERNMENT TOLD YOU."

Wilkes-Barre, PA reports on the staggering increases in homeless veterans.

And then there are the ongoing scandals of Walter Reed & VA hospitals; inadequate troop supplies & armor; depleted National Guards at home; war profiteers making their money at the expense of Iraqis, troops, and U.S. citizens.

It might be time to revisit the peace forced upon central Europe after World War I and see how that turned out.
