A small break for some politics by holding people accountable. Please sign the petition here. Sorry, my international friends, you unfortunately can’t.
“In that all evidence so far revealed supports that the Bush/Cheney administration intentionally lied to involve the US into the Iraq War, there should be an investgation into who was responsible for the useless deaths of thousands of Americans, Iraqis and citizens of other nations. Such actions are at best illegal and at worst, treasonous. People died because of these lies and those perpetrators should not be allowed to go unquestioned.”
Here in the States, Rachel Maddow has done a documentary based on the book “Hubris: The Inside Story of Spin, Scandal, and the Selling of the Iraq War” Links for the documentary here with a good review and more of the video here if you can’t see the first.
I can remember protesting this nonsense and being considered less than an American for questioning the drumbeat to war. Hindsight is always 20/20 but if we refuse to look then we’ll screw up again.
Now if we can just get those damned drones under control. War by remote control may feel like war without repercussions but it sure as hell isn’t.

This is truly an interesting development. Hope there are enough guys with the good sense to sign the petition and the guys at the White House to actually act on it!

It’s right up your alley, sure to bring a smile.
oh I just came across that story. I love the response to the twits at the Disco ‘tute.
We should start an annual award: “Best Discovery Institute Put Down”
yes. I did enjoy how whiny the DI twit became when he was told “no” and went right to the personal attacks. I guess “turn the other cheek” doesn’t count if you’re told you work for a group that does nothing but lie badly.
Thanks for this. Signed and tweeted your petition.
A few years back I tried to get a petition going to impeach bush. It died, having collected less than three hundred signatures after almost three years.
Meanwhile I saw petitions on such burning issues as:
Bring Misty back to Pokemon Advanced – 28,086 signatures
The Gilmore Girls Season 8 Petition – 14,001 signatures
Duffey Family Extreme Makeover – Home Edition Nomination – 31,651 signatures
Save The OC From Cancellation! – 9,090 signatures
Get Britney Nominated For 2005 VMAs – 4,218 signatures
Mr. Boston from I Love NY. Should Have His Own Show – 3,389 signatures
Save Arrested Development (#3) – 45,987 signatures
What could have I been thinking?
How could I expect anyone to be concerned with such a trifling subject as the survival of the human race whilst these other, more urgent, far more significant problems went unaddressed?
Thanks! 🙂 and yes, such petitions are out there. I guess someone finds them important …ahem
