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.

America's Death Squads They're murdering innocents in Iraq
by Justin Raimondo
ix months in jail – for a wanton murder. That's fair, now isn't it? It is if the victim is Iraqi, and the murderers are four American soldiers – that's what a military court recently decided, and it's a verdict that tells us everything we need to know about the "liberation" of Iraq.
Jan. 3, 2004 – Two young Iraqis,
Zaydun al-Samarrai and Marwan Hassoun, were transporting bathroom fixtures in their truck when it broke down and their trip back home was delayed. As they stood by the side of the road at 10:45 p.m., 15 minutes before the American-imposed curfew in Samarra, an American patrol chanced upon them – and that's when the trouble started.
They had already been stopped and searched at a checkpoint manned by Iraqi police, but the Americans made them get out of the truck, searched the cargo, and looked at their identity papers. Marwan remembers that one soldier merrily chirped at them in Arabic, as friendly as could be, and said they were free to go. But when they got back in their truck, the Americans had a sudden change of heart: the two of them were ordered out, handcuffed, and pushed into one of four Bradley fighting vehicles that made up the patrol.
Nineteen-year-old Zaydun was terrified, and whispered to Marwan: "What's happening?"
Zaydun Al-Samarrai, murdered by US soldiers in Iraq.
He would soon find out.
The Bradley stopped at a bridge that spans the Tigris, a bridge that also regulates the flow of river water and is known as the
Tharthar dam. Zaydun and Marwan were shoved out onto the walkway. The water roared below as the soldiers uncuffed them and ordered them to jump.
