VIDEO: Maliki Speech Interrupted By War Protestor

Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki’s address to a joint session of Congress was interrupted by a protestor, Medea Benjamin of Code Pink. Watch it:

Protestor

Benjamin shouted, “Iraqis want the troops to leave. Bring them home now.” According to a January poll, 87 percent of Iraqis support a U.S. timetable for withdrawal. The Iraqi President, Vice President, and National Security Adviser have all advocated a timetable for the withdrawal of U.S. troops. The latest USA Today/Gallup poll shows that 52 percent of the American people want a withdrawal within 12 months.

Democrats say Iraq war is top problem

AP
Excerpt:
The man anti-war democrats love to hateA third of Democrats — 31 percent — identified war, both the three-year-old Iraq war and conflicts in general, as the top problem for the country while 14 percent listed the economy, highlighting an issue at the forefront for Democrats, with less than four months to the midterm elections.

In Connecticut, three-term Democratic Sen. Joe Lieberman’s support for the war has made him the target of a tough primary challenge from anti-war candidate Ned Lamont. The two are locked in a close race with the primary on Aug. 8.

14 dead as Iraq violence escalates


I Africa
Excerpt:Six police and eight civilians were killed in a series of attacks in and around Baghdad overnight and early on Tuesday, police said.
As night fell on Monday, gunmen ambushed an Iraqi police unit in central Baghdad, triggering a gunbattle in which six officers were killed and 30 were wounded.
The clash took place on Haifa Street near the west bank of the Tigris River, north of the fortified Green Zone, the seat of the Iraqi government and the US embassy.
It underlined the failure of the Iraqi government’s six-week-old operation to regain control of Baghdad’s streets from anti-regime insurgents and sectarian militias.
On Tuesday, two roadside bombs exploded in the city, killing two civilians and wounding two bystanders and a policeman.
In another attack, a family of Shiite civilians who had been threatened by a sectarian death squad were ambushed by gunmen as they fled a mainly Sunni neighbourhood south of the city, medical and defence officials said

Divorces double in wake of violence, poor economy, fading stigma

Twin Cities.com
Excerpt:
More than twice as many marriages are ending in divorce as before the U.S.-led invasion in 2003, according to ministry and court officials, social workers and divorce lawyers, though no reliable data are available from the earlier period. The twin stresses of perpetual violence and a stagnant economy — along with the loosening of certain social stigmas — are taking a toll on one of Islamic culture’s most sacred institutions

H.L.s Take:
I bet the same thing is happening to the guys who fought the war. When Bush decides he wants to go to war, everyone loses except Bush, Rummy, Cheney, The Carlyle Group, and their various supporters and toadies.

Weeks of war to come, says Israeli general

Guardian U.K.
Excerpt:
“I assume it will continue for several more weeks, and in a number of weeks we will be able to [declare] a victory,” Major General Udi Adam, the head of Israel’s northern command, said at a news conference.

H.L.s Take:
Wow, that sounds familiar, now where have I heard that before….Oh yeah now I remember, It was Donald Rumsfeld talking about Bush’s War with Iraq, now when was that?… seems like a while ago…. oh yeah OVER 4 YEARS AGO.

A Much Greater Prize


Truthseeker
Excerpt:
The face of a Zionist Jewish girl, ably captured by a passing Reuters cameraman, radiates wondrous joy as she writes her name, “with love”, on a missile of death. Moments later, the object of her erotic fascination smashes and shatters the bodies of two Lebanese toddlers near a playschool…..The missiles were made in “Christian” America and were delivered by “Christian” American hardware.


Political News:House Votes To Block Seizure of Legal Guns in Disasters….Clinton, Schumer, Pressed to Renominate Bolton

Posted in H.L. News, Main Blog (All Posts) on July 26th, 2006 1:32 pm by HL

House votes to block police from seizing legal guns in disasters

KATC-3 TV
Excerpt:Republican Rep. Bobby Jindal, the Louisiana lawmaker who sponsored the bill, said firearms seizures after Hurricane Katrina left residents unable to defend themselves.
“Many of them were sitting in their homes without power, without water, without communication,” he said. “It was literally impossible to pick up a phone and call 911.”
The House voted 322-99 in support of the bill. Senators voted 84-16 earlier this month to include a similar prohibition in a homeland security funding bill.

H.L.s Take
Now maybe Homeland Security won’t be so willing go show up at someones home, and kick them out into the street.

Schumer and Clinton Pressed To Reappoint Bolton


NY Sun
Excerpt:As the Senate prepares to consider anew the nomination of John Bolton as United Nations ambassador, Senators Schumer and Clinton are facing increasing pressure from pro-Israel groups to renounce another Democratic filibuster in light of the escalating war in the Middle East.

The Foreign Relations Committee is set to hold a hearing on the nomination tomorrow, and several Democrats on the panel have voiced their unswerving opposition to Mr. Bolton’s nomination.

From New York’s senators, however, there has been nothing but silence. Mr. Schumer and Mrs. Clinton voted to block Mr. Bolton’s confirmation a year ago, but they have not declared their positions this time around.
