Gallery of anti-war propaganda posters remixed from old wartime posters.
Thanks skallas, but these posters are just leftist bullshit.
Nicely photoshopped, leftist, bullshit.

Thanks adampsyche, but are we playing a game here? Parody of military posters is fine by me, but making an extremely serious and horribly catastrophic world war which wrought hundreds of thousands of casualties, including my, and quite possibly your family members, ought not be trivialized by ridiculous, infantile, "Bush-is-a-chimp" style leftist rhetoric.
There is a time to fight for what you believe and protect, and this parody-poster nonsense struck a… [more]

Isn't that like declaring war on rebellion?
Yes rebellion is exactly the same as terrorism.
I rebel against marshmallows, so I will expose each and every impaled specimen to the flame torture treatment.

And what is it that we are up against these days that we need to stand up and fight for?
Your country? Your family? You choose.

fab7: Whether or not you "feel" that you are in danger, there are countless, untold (Islamist terrorists and other) masses who would like nothing better than to kill you where you stand. Perhaps "feeling" like you are in very grave, dire danger would be closer to reality. Get them before they get us now!

Thanks skallas: "Dissent is hardly bullshit, many of the points made here are fairly common concerns here in the states."
Concerns and dissent are constitutionally protected, as are leftist parodies of war posters. Please do not misunderstand my criticism.
The "idealized" past is not only the past, but the actual situation that we face now. There is a war and not a "war against ambigious peoples" but (not war yet)… [more]

How Al Qaeda Slipped Away
"With all the talk about how little evidence the Bush administration has tying Saddam Hussein to the 9-11 attacks, we're more than a little surprised at how quickly reporters, not to mention the White House, seem to have forgotten about Salman Pak".
Seems to me that dozens of little viruses are every bit as nasty as one big one.

That second link is terrible. I had to side scroll to read it.
Really? The whiterose link? No probs here. An excerpt:
"Anyone who wants the United States to start a war bears a heavy burden of proof: can we achieve the goal via war? is the goal worthwhile? is the goal achievable through no other means? is getting what we want worth the trouble it will cause us in the short and long terms? (for a start).… [more]

I'll drink to that!
As something of a minor expert in this field, I suggest shelling out a little for a better product, even if it means going without for a while. The rotgut only costs less in terms of money, but you'll pay twice the price in agony the next day when satan is using your noggin for a mixture of football punting practice, and an open call for jackhammer solos.

Brown Cloud threatens SE Asia
AACK! CNN! HACK!
Not only is SE Asia threatened, NE Asia has its disgusting share every spring, and the storms are so enormous that they span the Pacific. And Californians thought smoking was their biggest worry. Ignorance is bliss.

Low self esteem leads to negative moods.....
Uh... how do you mention self-esteem? This is not only depressing, but based on bullshit. Here we go again.

H.P. Blavatsky is an interesting figure in this constellation, and her friend C.W. Leadbeater was an Anglican clergyman and a Thirty-third degree mason.

Government plans to use Flight 93 cockpit tapes in Moussaoui trial
Now they tell us. Sheesh.
Of course, it's been here for months, but at least someone's finally admitting it.

"Not only do we have a right to know, we have a duty to know what our Government is doing in our name... If there's a criticsm to be made today, it's that the press isn't doing enough to put the pressure on the government to provide information."

Regime change required for a rogue nation?
Crows better than chimps at making tools?
Oh yeah? Well, if crows are so smart, how come they taste so good??

Is the planned WTC memorial in the wrong place?
There may be a slight problem with that link. Be that as it may, you might be grasping at futile straws with the "wrong place" idea. And as far as I am concerned, I have seen only one WTC proposal that is worth its salt and it's this.

She's lucky that's all she got. At least they didn't cane her.

by the way, they only cane men, not women
Thanks, I didn't know that. Remind me not to bring any cocaine to Singapore. Ouch.
One more comment: How did she get it through customs?? I mean you can't even bring chewing gum up in that piece.
You don't think she.... naw she couldn't have.

Here's an article written in 2001. North Korea is dangerous, unpredictable and violent, terrorist country. Kim Jong-Il says close to 30% of his own population is expendable and he is busy starving them and killing them off. But let's just be fans.

Could 9/11 Have Been Prevented?
"Taking the fight to al-Qaeda. " implies that there was actually a location, which there wasn't, right? They're still not gone.

"I still find this kind of conjecture more than offensive. "
Absolutely. Not only offensive but disgusting. Orwell's 1984? Fleener says our freedoms have been raped. I say if this is rape, then what does it take to awaken you to the fact that people want you, innocents, to die the most horrible deaths to glorify their horrid god.

I want a lotus blossom bride.
All kidding aside, there is a grain of truth in what you say, or is there?

Well, Chinese brides are pretty common. But this practice seems to span the millenia.
