Civilian Deaths Update

There have now been 4065 confirmed confirmed Iraqi civilian deaths, and 5223 reported. This just goes to show that war is never the right way. How can we justify the deaths of 4000 people? No matter what the reason, 4000 people do not need to die.
There is always a better way.

Hey there activist. Could use a little help getting this one off the ground…

The Brazilian congress is now voting on a
project that will reduce the Amazon forest to 50% of
its size. It will take one MINUTE to read this, but PLEASE put your
names on the list and forward this on as instructed below. The area to be
deforested is 4 times the size of Portugal and would be mainly used
for agriculture and pastures for livestock. All the wood is to be sold to
international markets in the form of wood chips, by large
multinational companies. The truth is that the soil in the Amazon forest is
useless without the forest itself. Its quality is very acidic and the region is
prone to constant floods. At this time more than 160,000 square
kilometres deforested with the same purpose are abandoned and in the
process of becoming deserts meaning that this proposal is in the
short-term interests of a few, and in the long term interests of none. Please
copy the text into a 'new e-mail' and put your complete name in the
list below, and send to everyone you know. (DON'T JUST FORWARD IT --
AS IT WILL THEN END up with ROWS AND ROWS of) If you are the 400th
person to sign please send a copy to:fsaviolo@openlink.com.br

keep the good word flowin
I would have nuked Iraq, you people are fucking stupid and have no life. Saddam Hussein killed in hundreds of thousands of his own people. You've probably have never been to Iraq or a totalitarian run country so you dont even know what it is like. As far as I 'm concerned you're just as much as an enemy, like Saddam or Bin Laden.I voted for Bush in 2000 and I'm voting for him again, because I'm proud to be an AMERICAN and I stand behind my PRESIDENT and my TROOPS. AND IF YOU HAVE PROBLEM WITH THAT THEN YOU CAN DIE AND GO TO HELL. IF YOU TRIED DOING THIS IN IRAQ WHILE SADDAM WAS IN POWER THEN YOU WOULD HAVE BEEN KILLED INSTANTLY.
ever thought of having your own will rather than being a sheep? that's all I'm trying to get at. people should decide on their own to support or detest our president, not from propaganda, of which both sides implicate and make use of.
Why do feel compelled to sway others thoughts? Are you so insecure in your own beliefs that you feel you need others by your side just to have the confidence to speak? live your life and i'll live mine and hopefully our beliefs won't cause us come into conflict.
Bring it on Bitch I'll fuckin work yo ass
