It's now used by the Special IG for Iraqi Audits. I took the picture the week before Easter. A SIGIR auditor died a week later in a Rocket Barrage on the Green Zone.
I posted these over at Prairie State Blue (the folks who switched to a flowers logo from an anarchist bomging picture) and they deleted the post and seemed to have banned me. I can no longer log in and post diaries.
Progressives for Obama get the idea though. The election is about rockets and war and peace. The P for O have the solutions all tangled, but they understand the real issue and I share their disgust that it's not talked about more.
The decisive issue in this election is about war and peace, between Barack Obama's proposed diplomacy with Iran to end the war in Iraq, and the hawkish stance of his two rivals, Hillary Clinton and John McCain, who favor an escalating the tensions with Tehran even to the point of war.Steve Chapman did write about war yesterday in Mythmaking for the Next War. I wrote him yesterday and sent him a copy of the picture.
The mainstream media, and some of the blogosphere, continue to miss the danger of an escalated war as they blog and dabble over race, gender and numbers of pledged delegates. The antiwar movement and most Democrats have been fairly silent about these differences as well.
I wrote a tyrant doesn't need a big arsenal these days; or a soviet size Army or Air Force. A few nukes and a delivery system is enough. When dictators advertise --as Saddam did with his murals-- and has the where-with-all financially to make good, we should take him seriously.
War and Peace, Aggression and Survival, are the most important issues. The P for O crowd nailed that just right.
