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.

The Face of War

<>These photos were taken by US military personnel in Fallujah on
November 19, 2004. They were taken in order to identify the dead, as
well as used to track where the bodies were later buried in Fallujah.<>

Of hundreds of photos taken for identification of the dead, I selected
these in order to show the face of war. Due to most media outlets in the
west continuing to not show the daily horrific images in Iraq-of wounded
and dead soldiers, civilians and fighters, I decided to put these on my

I did so because I believe it is important for people to see what war
looks like.

All of these photos taken by the military are of men. An interesting
thing, in light of the fact that the Iraqi Red Crescent has announced
that conservatively, 60% of the casualties in Fallujah, which are
expected to be well over 2,000 people, are women, children, elderly and
unarmed civilians.

I warn you in advance that these are extremely graphic images.
