Bush monkey portrait sparks protestsI would have used little Satans instead of Monkeys
By Larry Fine
NEW YORK (Reuters) - A portrait of President George W. Bush using monkeys to form his image has led to the closure of a New York art exhibition over the weekend and anguished protests over freedom of expression.
H.L.s Take: Touchy, touchy, touchy, I wonder why the guy got so upset about the painting. Could it be that the Truth hurts. Everybody on the entire planet knows that monkey boy is a Monkey, but Republicans just have to deny reality no matter how stupid they look doing it. "You painted Bush with monkeys?" Oh my Godddd! Well I never... I...you...what...Get that painting down or I'm calling the Police. Thats right just throw everyone in jail who has a different opinion then you. Thats the American way isn't it.
Car Bomb Kills 7 in Baghdad's Green Zone2 More Marines also died overnight By SLOBODAN LEKIC, Associated Press Writer
BAGHDAD, Iraq - A suicide car bomber killed seven people when he struck a checkpoint at Baghdad's Green Zone early Tuesday, the second attack in two days at the district that houses Iraq interim government and the U.S. Embassy, officials said. The U.S. military said Tuesday that two U.S. Marines were killed in action in western Iraq. This brought the number of Marines killed in the region in three days to 10. A military statement said the two Marines died Monday "while conducting security and stabilization operations" in the vast Anbar province west of Baghdad, which includes the battleground cities of Fallujah and Ramadi. Seven other Marines died in action Sunday in Anbar and a 10th was killed on Saturday. The U.S. military did not provide details of their death, but they brought to nearly 1,300 the number of American troops killed in Iraq since the invasion in March 2003. The Pentagon has announced that troop numbers will rise from 138,000 to 150,000 before the Jan. 30 national elections, which many Iraqis fear could be targeted by militants opposed to the occupation and bent on derailing the political process.
Its been one year since they captured Saddam

H.L.s Take: He will never go to trial because he could spill all kinds of dirt on the Bush's so he will sit in his prison cell until they decide to poison him or something.
Pentagon concerned about legal complaint in Germany against Rumsfeld, othersZieg Hiel
WASHINGTON (AFP) - The Pentagon expressed concern over a criminal complaint filed in Germany against US Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and other officials over the Abu Ghraib prison scandal, warning that "frivolous lawsuits" could affect the broader US-German relationship. The complaint was filed in Berlin November 30 by the New York-based Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR) and Berlin's Republican Lawyers' Association on behalf of four Iraqis who were alleged to have been mistreated by US soldiers. Besides Rumsfeld, former CIA (news - web sites) director George Tenet, Undersecretary of Defense for intelligence Steven Cambone, Lieutenant General Ricardo Sanchez, Brigadier General Janis Karpinski and five other military officers who served in Iraq (news - web sites) were named in the complaint, which seeks an investigation into their role in the prisoner abuses at Abu Ghraib. The groups that filed the complaint said they had chosen Germany because of its Code of Crimes Against International Law, introduced in 2002, which grants German courts universal jurisdiction in cases involving war crimes or crimes against humanity. It also makes military or civilian commanders who fail to prevent their subordinates from committing such acts liable.
