Mood: on fire
Now Playing: My feelings on Impeachment & my cousin Ted
I posted this on www.BlueOregon.com just minutes ago
under the topic of the Impeachment issue & my
House Representative Earl Blumenauer
I repaeat my cousins words
<see last paragraph of this post of mine for his quote>
This isn’t rocket science
Crimes have been committed
They need to be investigated its that simple.
My cousin shot himself in the head in Baghdad in 2005 in his trailer
He was in a war that was waged based on lies and cooked information
He was a high ranking US Military official, training the Iraqi police force
His death bed note said "Death before Dishonor"
He was working with "contractors” & his commanding officer was that General Petraeus guy.
He got nowhere with Petraeus.
He was disgusted, it was fruitless, (sound familiar to anyone)
He was the highest ranking officer to die in Iraq (he was, but now I’m not sure in that recently there is so many dieing over there)
Here is a news story on my cousin
Get this He killed himself out of disgust for this immoral war.
Geeee morals what’s that ?
I have written Earl about this war
And about illegal spying on citizens, and other violations by this administration
Either you act like Petraeus did to my cousin Ted, or you do what is ethical and just.
Its one or the other.
I have been sticking up for Earl for years on Indy Media and other places as I also do for Ralph Nader....
But I draw my line now, due to his stubborn refusal to know right form wrong
He is pretty much almost irritated by us wanting Impeachment
I stand by my cousins words "I will not be sullied any more"
This man Bush deserves nothing but a trial.
It makes no difference if it is popular, or worth it, or if it will stick and he be removed
As Bonnie Tinker said at the town hall meeting, "the time for Justice is always now"
My cousin Ted thought so
John Bradach’s nephew thought so
And with the sincerity that Joe Walsh (The Lone Vet) has asked numerous times so courageously, "How many more must die before you wake up and do something?"
Apparently it could be millions (or more)
For this rocket science program has The Blumenauer clan touting that they care.
But if they did they would be out wearing a red shirt.
I have been there 10 weeks in a row, it is in sacrifice of my lunch hour I do this to bring Justice to the table at Earls office, in hopes that guys just like my cousin Ted and John's nephew, and the Iraq refugees I just recently met can have a little peace and a chance to live another day. I need my representative to represent me.
It’s amazing my cousin a Col. shot himself to keep his honor. Yet Earl and Willie all sit around and pretend they care but their hands are tied.
I wish my cousin had his hands tied that fateful day
I wish Earl (Willie) could see the difference between crimes worthy of Impeachment vs. rocket science spin.
So many are dead. So many are dieing.
And I read out here bickering over fine print law, and justification to do what ever they want (fill in blank) at their own whim n peril, with no remorse
Its plain and its simple - Our country is murdering the Iraqi population.
If your against this reckless administration trashing the constitution and international law then come on out and put your BLOOD red "Impeach" shirt on and stand for justice and honesty
bicker and hem n haw over sally said, she said, and/or fine print rules of Congress and Executive law.
But like my cousin Ted, who was a professor at West Point said, “This is wrong I will die before I listen to Petraeus and Bush for one more day” (my words)
BANG! One shot to his head.
Ya got really love this frickin war and the men who keep it going
I can see why these Representative (rocket scientists) don’t get it
Its so hard to know right form wrong.
Ya know the suicide rate is escalating over there?
And the horror stories from Refugee’s and Veterans are Horrific (actually mind numbing)
Those torture pictures alone scarred me for life, yet Bush uses back room signage statements (more fine print) to use rendition and sick torture methods, scrapping Geneva, and habeas corpus and as much as spits on the constitution
Oh "we don’t want to start a circus by bringing up Impeachment"….noooooo!
I would rather be at a circus than this blood bath….. millions are now dead!
One side for Peace Justice, and Impeachment
One side for Law Breaking and Blood, Death, Murder, and Suicide Provocateurs
(who all for war profiteering/greed/oil/power)
Pick your sides, no need to bring your rocket scientific stuff …..its either, your on one side or the other.
That said to help clarify the right n wrong part, read this short clip Ted wrote before he died, notice the part to Petraeus his “cdrs”
Sounds to me like Move On was “Right On”!
Thanks for telling me it was a good day until I briefed you. [Redacted name]—You are only interested in your career and provide no support to your staff—no msn [mission] support and you don’t care. I cannot support a msn that leads to corruption, human right abuses and liars. I am sullied—no more. I didn’t volunteer to support corrupt, money grubbing contractors, nor work for commanders only interested in themselves. I came to serve honorably and feel dishonored. I trust no Iraqi. I cannot live this way. All my love to my family, my wife and my precious children. I love you and trust you only. Death before being dishonored any more. Trust is essential—I don’t know who trust anymore. [sic] Why serve when you cannot accomplish the mission, when you no longer believe in the cause, when your every effort and breath to succeed meets with lies, lack of support, and selfishness? No more. Reevaluate yourselves, cdrs [commanders]. You are not what you think you are and I know it.
COL Ted Westhusing
Life needs trust. Trust is no more for me here in Iraq.
