       New Advertiser on The H.L.

The H.L. would like to welcome a new advertiser. It is Occupation Dreamland. a Documentary Film about the Iraq War.

Occupation: Dreamland is an candidly unflinching portrait of a of American squad of soldiers deployed in the Iraqi doomed city of Falluja during the winter of 2004. A collective study of the soldiers unfolds as they patrol a low-intensity environment of conflict creeping steadily towards major catastrophe. Occupation: Dreamland provides a vital glimpse into the last days of Falluja. through the activities of the squad. The film documents the waning stability of the city before a final series of military assaults began in the spring of 2004 that effectively destroyed it.

Filmmakers Garrett Scott and Ian Olds were given access to all operations of the 82nd Airborne. They lived with the Army unit 24/7, giving voice to soldiers held under a strict code of authority as they cope with an ambiguous, often lethal environment. The result is a revealing, sometimes surprising look at Army life, operations and the complexity of American war in the 21st century.

Rumur Releasing and Working Films are organizing screening parties to be held around the country

throughout March. ( more information)


You can also order your own personal copy of the film. Go to the ad at the top left bar of this site for more info. H.L.s Advertisers are the only thing that support this site, so please go check it out. Thank You

       Latest Zogby Poll: Surveying Soldiers in Iraq.

Zogby: 90% Iraq Soldiers Think They Are There Due To Saddam Role in 9/11.

Pollster John Zogby has released his latest poll, this one is of U.S Soldiers in Iraq. The Poll called the Le Moyne College/Zogby Polls asked soldiers a number of questions regarding what is going on in Iraq, and why they are there. The most glaring number that stares out at me is 90, as in 90% of the soldiers in Iraq still believe that they are there because they think that Saddam Hussein was involved in The World Trade Center, and Pentagon Bombings on September 11, 2001. This is well more then a year after even the most conservative of news outlets, and the mainstream media have admitted that Saddam had nothing to do with 9/11.
This points up a couple of truisms that are involved in this whole scenario: first, that the average soldier in the U.S. Armed Services has very little to no idea what is really going on in the world, and second, The Army has no desire to teach them. If they did morale amongst troops would be near zero, and recruiting rates would be even lower then they are now because current servicemen would warn future servicemen against signing on to Bush's bloodbath for personal enrichment at the expense of the nation that he swore to protect.

Consortium News
The U.S. Disconnect on Bush Abuses

Excerpt: The U.S. news media is experiencing a cognitive meltdown as it tries to hold onto the traditional view of the United States as a beacon for human rights while facing the new reality in which George W. Bush has plunged the nation into the dark arts of torture, assassination and “disappearances” more common in “death-squad” states.

Z Mag

Excerpt: To ask what it means to be a "good American" is not to compare Bush to Hitler, or Republicans to Nazis. The question does not arise only when leaders engage in mass murder on the scale of a Hitler or Stalin, which Bush has not. It requires only that they engage in actions that are clearly evil, which Bush has.
