Nasty Letters To Crooked Politicians

As we enter a new era of politics, we hope to see that Obama has the courage to fight the policies that Progressives hate. Will he have the fortitude to turn the economic future of America to help the working man? Or will he turn out to be just a pawn of big money, as he seems to be right now.

Fallujah Pictures

Two weeks ago someone was allowed into Fallujah by the military to help
bury bodies. They were allowed to take photographs of 75 bodies, in
order to show pictures to relatives so that they might be identified
before they were buried.

These pictures are from a book of photos. They are being circulated
publicly around small villages near Fallujah where many refugees are

The man who took them was only allowed to take photos and bury bodies in
one small area of Fallujah. He was not allowed to visit anywhere else.
Keep in mind there are at least 1,925 other bodies that were not allowed
to be seen.

Information with some of the photos is from those identified by family
members already.

One of the family members who was looking for dead relatives, shared
these photos which were taken from that book.

Speaking on condition of anonymity, he told of what he saw in his
village during the last few weeks.

“The Americans shot every boat on the river because people were trying
to escape Fallujah by the river. They shot all the sheep, any animal
people owned was shot. Helicopters shot all the animals and anything
that moved in all the villages surrounding Fallujah during the fighting.”

He said that none of the roads into Fallujah, or around Fallujah were
passable because anyone on them was shot. “I know one family that were
all killed. There are no signs on these roads that tell people not to
use them-so people don’t know they aren’t supposed to use them. No signs
in English or Arabic!”

Here are the photos. <--click here, or paste the url, below.
