Was Killing Iraqi Children Worth It?

By Jacob G. Hornberger

The killing of those children and their families is just one example of how U.S. foreign policy has engendered anger and hatred for the United States, which produces the threat of terrorist retaliation, which brings about the "war on terrorism," which results in more interventions, more massive military spending, and ever-increasing loss of liberty at home.

Major Impeachment Movement Breakout in Oregon, Three Congressional Candidates Form Impeach Team

Inspired by the valiant primary challenge of Shirley Golub, against the Speaker of the House herself, other candidates are rising up all over the country to issue impeachment based congressional primary challenges of their own.

In Oregon in particular, which has a relatively early primary on May
22, Mark Welyczko OR-01, Joe Walsh OR-03 and Nancy Moran OR-05, are teaming together to run joint radio spots on Portland's Air America affiliate. You can listen to the radio spot on this page.

Impeach Team Radio Spot:

The beautiful thing about these three districts is that they are arranged around Portland like a pinwheel, and so each of these candidates is sure of reaching the constituents of their own district, plus demonstrating solidarity on the impeachment issue. Won't you make a contribution from the page above to these brave candidates today, to join with them in their solidarity?

With the forced retirement of Admiral Fallon, who famously said that an attack on Iran would not happen on his watch, there is a real threat the the White House could do something utterly insane if left unconfronted by a cowardly and docile Congress just trying to tread water through to the next election. But those in the Middle East know how imminent and real the danger is. After Cheney visited the Saudis last week, the next day they were warning their own people about how to protect themselves from nuclear fallout, as from a nuclear first strike on Iran.

And the only thing that will get Congress to even remotely pay attention to we the people is to actually mount serious challenges to their own seats in the primaries, which is what Shirley Golub is doing in San Francisco, and what Mark Welyczko, Joe Walsh, and Nancy Moran are now also doing in their own districts. On this same page below are links to all their individual sites if you want to know more about what they stand for on other issues.

Impeach Team Radio Spot:

But unless Congress acts on impeachment before the end of this term, not only is there a threat of an even wider war, you can take it to the bank that Bush will not only blanket pardon every one of his cronies, he will also pardon himself. Those of you who might hold out some hope of accountability after Jan 2009, remember we warned you this was coming. Indeed, we believe starting an even bigger war is their PLAN to elect another war president, on a wave of resurrected war fever.

We have one and only one chance to save the Constitution, by forcing Congress to stand up for itself, and for us, now. And only viable primary challenges will do it. Otherwise the damage will be complete. If Bush and Cheney are not guilty of the highest of high Constitutional crimes then no president need ever fear being held to account ever again. If we do not act now, whether there are 7 months left or 7 minutes, then any future president will take that as a free pass to do whatever the hell they want the last year or so of their elected term.

And remember, if you can contribute $100 or more to this urgent initiative, the Impeach Team will send you one of the new bright orange "IMPEACH BOTH!!" caps, to proudly proclaim your membership on the Impeach Team.

Paid for equally by The Committee to Elect Mark Welyczko, Joe Walsh for Congress, and Nancy Moran for Congress

Please take action NOW, so we can win all victories that are supposed to be ours, and forward this alert as widely as possible.
