A taste of what Bush has for us...

BAGHDAD, Iraq Mar 27, 2005 Security officials opened fire on a crowd of protesters Sunday, killing one, and al-Qaida's arm in Iraq posted a video purportedly showing an Iraqi Interior Ministry official being killed.

Iraq's newly elected lawmakers, meanwhile, were expected to meet Tuesday to choose a speaker and two deputies, according to a National Assembly statement released Sunday. The lawmakers met on March 16, but have repeatedly postponed a second meeting because of negotiations over Cabinet positions; it was unclear whether they would name the country's new president on Tuesday, expected to be Kurdish leader Jalal Talabani.

Violence persisted Sunday, with bodyguards for Science and Technology Minister Rashad Mandan Omar opening fire on a crowd of protesters who had gathered in front of the ministry's offices to demand their full wages, said Hamid Balasem, an engineer at the ministry.

Balasem said about 50 ministry guards were demonstrating because they said they were paid only part of their wages. It was unclear why the guards opened fire.

Also Sunday, insurgents hit a police patrol with a roadside bomb in the southern oil city of Basra, injuring one nearby civilian, Lt. Col. Karim Ali Al-Zaydi said. They also damaged an oil pipeline in northern Iraq, halting exports to Turkey. The pipeline has been targeted in the past.

Late Saturday, assailants opened fire on a cafe popular with ethnic Kurds in Kirkuk, killing one and injuring three, said Sarhat Kadre of the police force in the ethnically mixed city 180 miles north of Baghdad. The motive in the attack was not known.

Iraq's insurgency appears to be scaling back attacks on U.S. military forces while focusing its deadly efforts on government workers, primarily targeting Iraq's fledgling security forces.

A video posted Sunday on the Internet purportedly showed an Iraqi Interior Ministry official hostage being shot dead by militants from Abu Musab al-Zarqawi's terror network.

There was no way to independently authenticate the video, which was posted on a militant Web site.
So THAT's Bush's goal for America. "Where do I sign up?" says the dumbass.

In the interests of fairness, let's not forget the blood on Clinton's hands from Ruby Ridge, Waco, and The Battle Of Seattle. Republicrats and Demmicans are working for the same people, employing the same methods, towards the same ends: greater power for the State.

/Ahem... Security forces are Iraqi.

This is the way they do things, this is the way they have done things for centuries.

I doubt Bush was there, and I'd bet my life they opened fire without asking Bush for permission before hand. I swear Bush is like Santa to yall, he knows and does everything himself.

Wait, what? This doesn't make any sense to me. Like Kent State was such a PR coup for Nixon right? [/withering sarcasm].

There's no such thing as an honest politician, and if there were they would be dead before they amounted to anything just to protect the status quo. As for things like this, we all seem to do an awful lot of complaining about how things are, and then precious little to change them, but when the administration attempts to affect a positive change, regardless of the ulterior motives, our only reaction is to criticize, place blame, and undermine the campaigns in place through our "moral indignity".

I don't like Bush. At all. But this thread has nothing to do with him and is utterly pointless.

well, I haven't seen any homicide bombers, roadside IED's, or firefights on any of our city streets lately so I hardly see where this can be construed as what Bush has in mind for us here.

I must have missed the story about the personal bodyguards of one of our Cabinet members opening fire on workers from their department. I'd like to read that if I could.

That is certainly true. It is just the iron hand, or the iron hand in the velvet glove - the choice between democrat and republican is just a choice between the personalities of the two presidents, both parties have conservative and capitalistic agenda's - both parties should be understand as politically opposed to the radical working class.

Republican/Democrat - Bush/Kerry - the agenda of both is the accumulation of capital, resistance against working class democracy, and the accumulation and consolidation of state power over the people coupled with the unfettered freedom of the violence of the invisble hands of the market.
