The U.S. military admits 876 U.S. GI's killed in the Iraq war as of today, 7/8/04, www.icasualties.org. Losses are rising fast now. It is likely that the true number of "poverty draft" deaths is far greater than they were ever going to admit and they knew they would be. No wonder they would not allow the flag draped caskets to be photographed. People can count. Spread the numbers. jamie

Mark Kirk (Republican, 10th District – Illinois) admitted on the floor of Congress that he has been working for the Central Intelligence Agency at the same time he is serving in Congress. Lee Goodman, Kirk’s Democratic opponent, called for Kirk’s resignation from Congress. “The conflict of interest is blatant and appalling,” said Goodman. “Congress has been struggling to investigate intelligence failures by the CIA and now it turns out Kirk is working for the CIA. No wonder Kirk voted not to investigate these failures after 9/11. He is working for the people who didn’t want to be investigated. Any high-schooler who has studied the separation of powers in U.S. history class would recognize the problem.”

En la vieja política cubana- los que tienen buena memoria o los mas jóvenes que han estudiado historia- conocen de una frase popular que se hizo famosa en unas elecciones presidenciales cubanas: !Ojo con el Vice!...
This is an important report as it suggests that, frustrated by lack of success on the ground, "coalition" forces have resorted to massive aerial bombardments of civilian neighborhoods and infrastructure in cities such as al-Fallujah and ar-Ramadi and elsewhere where resistance is strong and getting stronger. This is a war-crime and those that authorize such actions and those that carry them out are war criminals. Noone in the U.S military is obliged to carry out any such illegal action. We must call on all coalition personnel to follow their consciences and refuse and resist now! Please spread this appeal and the attached reports. Peace, jamie

Joining up of three universities of Sumy is the Crime! The universities are Sumy State University ( http://www.sumdu.edu.ua) - SumSU, Sumy National Agricultural University ( http://sau.sumy.ua) - SNAU, and Sumy State Pedagogical University - SSPU. The reason of joining is an attempt to hide the financial collapse of Sumy National Agricultural University (SNAU), to conceal its debts in other universities. Another reason is political ambitions of Tsarenko, the rector of SNAU, who is also a deputy of Parlament and a member of the United Social-Democratic Party of Ukraine (SDPU (u)). On the eve of forthcoming elections, his powerless students and employees are not enough for him. Now, he tries to extend his administrative pressure to other universities.

If Voting Changed Anything, It Would Be Illegal In the year 2004, will the Democrats save us all from the madness of King George II and the pupper-master himself, Dick Cheney?

Millions of dollars and countless hours of people's energy is being expended to elect "Anybody But Bush". Could this energy be better spent?
