Let's give all Mothers all over the world - particularly Mothers of U.S. and allied troops, and especially all Iraqi Mothers - a great big Mothers Day present.

BRING THE TROOPS HOME FROM IRAQ!!!

We have all petitioned, sent letters and e-mails, demonstrated -- even and especially, people outside of the U.S. THANK YOU! And KEEP DOING IT!

However, that has proved to be NOT ENOUGH.

Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice, in a TV interview the other day, indicated that THE WAR COULD GO ON FOREVER; THE ILLEGAL AND IMMORAL OCCUPATION OF IRAQ, IS INTENDED TO LAST FOREVER. No matter HOW the mis-Adminstration hems and haws and dances around the subject, THAT IS WHAT THEY REALLY, IN THE END, MEAN -- even if they can't SAY that, directly.
The mis-Administration will actually, keep on EXTENDING, and EXTENDING, and EXTENDING troops' deployments -- for the foreseeable future, for our LIFETIMES if they steal another Election and get re-elected by fair means or foul!!!

Congress says they are doing their best! Congress was elected in 2006 with a CLEAR MANDATE TO STOP THE WAR. Evidently they can't or won't TRY hard enough; or their hands are tied. AND THIS COUNTRY IS NO LONGER A DEMOCRACY REFLECTING THE WILL OF THE PEOPLE.

Shall we sit on our backsides? wait and "hope for the best"? Hope hope hope hope hope????? Shall we wait for the next election? and the next? and the next? and the......?

There are
TWO THINGS WE CAN ALL, EACH AND EVERY ONE OF US, DO NOW THIS MOTHERS DAY TO BRING THE TROOPS HOME, HOME TO THEIR MOTHERS AND FAMILIES, HOME TO PEACE WHILE THEY ARE STILL ALIVE AND UN-MAIMED.

YES, WE CAN END THE WAR ON OUR TIMETABLE, NOT ON BUSH'S PHONEY "TIMETABLE"! SI SE PUEDES! YES WE CAN!!!!!

The two things are:
1] The troops must THEMSELVES REFUSE to fight in this war any longer. There have been NOTABLE INDIVIDUALS who have done this: to mention only ONE, Lt. Ehren Watada, who deserves all of our support for his trial and court-martial hearing in a few weeks.
But, that has not been enough. WHOLE UNITS must revolt, disobey direct orders, lay down their weapons, REFUSE TO DEPLOY TO IRAQ. There is NO glory, NO Honor for being DUPES of Media LYING! And we the Civilians, communities and friends and family members, MUST SHOW VERY AUDIBLY AND VISIBLY, OUR UNQUALIFIED SUPPORT FOR THEIR REFUSAL.

2] First that CRIMINAL MASTER-MIND, DICK CHENEY, MUST BE IMPEACHED: THEN BUSH MUST BE IMPEACHED ALSO. THAT will bring the War and Occupation to a screeching halt, if and when Nancy Pelosi, Democratic Speaker of the House of Representatives and next in line, becomes THE FIRST WOMAN PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. {Speaker Pelosi is not very big on Impeachment NOW; but she wouldn't turn down the Presidency if it was offered her!}

Below, there is a "DO-IT-YOURSELF" Impeachment Kit, for Americans.
GO, AMERICANS, GO!!! What have you to lose, "You have nothing to lose but your chains"!

What can a non-American citizen do? Well, plenty.
HELP US, PLEASE!

If there are American bases and Embassies in your country, PROTEST AT THEM. And ask that the American bases be CLOSED, THROWN OUT.
 As the People are protesting now in Vicenza, Italy. Did you know, that America has MORE FOREIGN BASES THAN FOREIGN EMBASSIES ABROAD??? Seven hundred and something. DISGUSTING! And, Americans are BUILDING SEVERAL PERMANENT BASES IN IRAQ. Gives the LIE, doesn't it, to "We are going to leave sometime.......... whenever........."!!!

If there are American bases in your country, and there probably are, TRY TO GET IN CONTACT WITH AMERICAN SOLDIERS WHEN THEY LEAVE THE BASE. Are there G.I. coffeeshops, or social events to which American troops would come? Can you arrange for any? LEAFLET, or put up POSTERS or GRAFFITI. {Legally, or ILLEGALLY, as I and my friends do here!} Talk face-to-face with the troops if you possibly can, or thru the Internet, in demos, broadcasts, etc. etc.

THERE IS ALREADY A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF RESISTANCE WITHIN THE AMERICAN ARMY, AS THERE WAS DURING THE VIET NAM WAR. I CAN PERSONALLY VOUCH FOR THAT {but I am not going to give anything away! But some of my sources are Public ones, such as War Cry newspaper [Grito de Guerra], Vietnam Veterans Against the War Anti-Imperialist [VVAWAI], and Iraq Veterans Against the War}. But there is a CURTAIN OF MILITARY CENSORSHIP that will have to be breached!

We, you and I, need to BUILD ON THE RESISTANCE THAT IS ALREADY THERE, AND ENCOURAGE IT, AND SUPPORT IT IN EVERY WAY POSSIBLE.

[Of course, the FAMILIES AND FRIENDS of the troops, are BEST placed to BREACH THAT MILITARY CENSORSHIP. So, if one is in a position to TALK TO FAMILY MEMBERS AND FRIENDS of the troops......]

[All of the above goes of course for British, Canadian, any other troops deployed to Iraq as well.]

THESE ARE ACTIONS THAT EVERY RECIPIENT OF THIS MOTHERS DAY MESSAGE, CAN START TO TAKE.
AND PASS ON, AND INFLUENCE OTHERS TO TAKE. EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOU. THE PEOPLE OF THE WORLD ARE COUNTING ON YOU.
PLEASE!

I HAVE BEEN CALLED A TRAITOR, SUBVERSIVE, AND WORSE.
WELL, IN THE WORDS OF THAT GREAT AMERICAN PATRIOT, PATRICK HENRY:

"IF THIS BE TREASON,
MAKE THE MOST OF IT!"

Love & Peace & all that good stuff;
BMutiny you know what it means by now T

Friends,

National Boycott To Impeach for Peace - Tax Day (April 15) 'til Earth Day (April 22)
>
> The organizers of the boycott have recognized the fact, that our elected representatives have been unwilling to move forward on the public's overwhelming demands for impeachment and an end to the war in Iraq.
>
> This boycott is a way of unifying the opposition to the Bush Administration; and according to Dr. Peter Phillips, who was the first to propose the idea in December,
> "could well be the straw that broke the camel's back".
>
> The boycott has been called in response to the statement by the new Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, that the issue of impeachment was "off the table".
>
> One of the leading researchers into the agenda and actions of the Bush Administration, Dr. Peter Phillips, the Director of Project Censored at Sonoma State University, proposed a new tactic in the ongoing campaign to hold the administration, their neo-conservative backers, spin doctors, consultants and henchmen accountable.
>
> It is the belief of the organizers that this Administration must be held to task for the host of charges that have been levied against them. Dr. Phillips, a professor of Sociology, has spent his professional career investigating the origins and purposes of the "Power Elite" in general, and neo-conservatives in particular.
>
> Phillips struck upon the use of a boycott as a means to draw together all of those who oppose this administration and their policies. We can not simply rely on the work of progressive activists. We must bring together all citizens who feel strongly that crimes have been committed and an accounting is due.
>
> A boycott is simply a form of non-violent resistance. By simultaneously withdrawing our support from the economy, millions of people can have a dramatic impact on the policies of individual corporations and
> even national governments. In 1990, ACT-UP staged a boycott of Phillip Morris that resulted in providing millions of dollars for AIDS research.
>
> In 1994, a boycott waged against Shell Oil, Kellogs and Coca Cola, helped to increase the momentum of the anti-apartheid movement. In 1995, the International Peace Bureau called for a boycott of all French products in oppositioon to nuclear testing.
>
> The French wine industry was especially hard hit and the threat of "economic disruption" spurred President Chirac to sign the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty. National polls now show that well over half of ALL Americans believe that this administration should be impeached. A much higher percentage want to see this war end and virtually everyone wants to know the truth behind the events of the last 7 years.
>
> What the people want, and what they get, can be two entirely different things if left up to the consideration of career politicians.
>
> The marches, books, movies, lectures and petitions all speak directly to the politicians...and they aren't listening. So let's put pressure on the people they do listen to 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
>
> The boycott provides us with a way to send a wake-up call to the corporate backers of our political leaders. America, holding back on our spending for even one week will show the corporate powers that the
> people are serious, we are determined and "We're not buying it anymore". To that end, we are building a network of individuals and organizations from coast to coast and around the world to support this action.
>
> By uniting the work of so many millions of people into a single week of protest in which we make sure that the money talks loud and clear, we can give fair warning to our representatives that the time for truth has come, justice is demanded and a full accounting is expected from Washington and Wall Street
 
> Bush's advice after 9/11:
> "I encourage you all, to go shopping more."
>
> Our Response:
> We Are NOT Buying It!
>
> The Top Charges Against The Bush-Cheney Administration:
>
> 1. Boldly lying to Congress to start the war in Iraq
> 2. Use of "signing statements" to expand executive power
> 3. Authorizing the use of torture in violation of the Geneva Convention.
> 4. Authorizing the intelligence community to spy on American citizens without due process.
> 5. Failure to respond to warnings from the intelligence community about the 9/11 attacks.
> 6. Failure to respond to warnings regarding imminent levee failure in New Orleans, and grossly mishandling emergency response to Hurricane Katrina; costing the lives and property of thousands.
>
> Of course there are many other reasons to be alarmed by the behavior of this administration: Refusing to entertain even the objective results of hard science in regards to any policy they propose, appointing ideologues in every agency in the government to stop any work that may be protecting the people from corporate predators, engaging in generally ruthless and underhanded tactics to maintain their hold on power including the use of outright propoganda and disinformation. But perhaps the clearest clue of all as to the goals of this administration lie in the direction their policies have taken our nation, and the world, over the last 7 years. Global war, the subversion of the Constitution and the barrage of "reforms" that have the effect of leaving us all at the mercy of those who will only use their wealth to turn the world into a poisonous and desolate wasteland.
>  
> Consumers are asked to withhold their spending for seven days, beginning on Sunday April 15 and lasting until Sunday April 22, 2007.
>
> Do NOT shop corporate outlets
>
> Minimize use of oil and gas.
>
> Carpool: bus, bike or walk.
>
> If you buy, BUY LOCALLY.
>
> Plan Ahead and Stock Up
>
  
> By submitting this form, I understand myself to be taking a pledge, to join forces with WeAreNotBuyingIt.Org and the National Boycott to Impeach for Peace.
>
> I will do what I can for this initiative, and do solemnly commit my support.
>
> http://www.wearenotbuyingit.org/volunteer.html

MY PERSONAL ADVICE: THINK ABOUT THIS FOR AWHILE, TALK ABOUT IT WITH YOUR FRIENDS AND NEIGHBORS, both on and off of Care2!, SIGN THE PLEDGE IF YOU REALLY MEAN IT, DON'T TAKE THIS LIGHTLY!!!
IT IS A WONDERFUL IDEA IF IT REALLY TAKES OFF LIKE THE SUPPORT FOR HOWARD DEAN ON MOVEON! AND IT COULD!

THIS IS ALSO BECOMING AN INTERNATIONAL MOVEMENT, AT LEAST IN ENGLISH-SPEAKING COUNTRIES!
SO PLEASE THINK AND TALK ABOUT IT; there is more at the site, free posters to download, etc.
If not in the U.S., please consider passing it on to your friends in English-speaking countries, U.S., Britain, Australia, Canada, etc. -- or think of other means of support!!!!!!

Thank you all for considering this and for any support you feel you can give! This will work BETTER than any election possibly could! If we bring it off!!!

  • So what happens next? What happens if Bush tries to preemptively pardon everyone, INCLUDING himself? Even Nixon wasn't that shameless. But don't put it past Bush to trigger the greatest constitutional crisis of all time. There are a couple of wrinkles involved here, beyond even the public outroar that would result. The constitution states that the president has the power to pardon "except in Cases of Impeachment." That's why it is important that you act now to demand the impeachment of Bush for all the high crimes and misdemeanors that he has committed already. In the end it may be the only way to restrain him.

    TAKE ACTION NOW AT http://www.millionphonemarch.com/impeach.htm

    If Bush tries to pardon himself AND cling to power, expect winds of historic intensity for change. And in the center of it all there will be a vacuum of power. For those politicians who have shown no courage so far, this will be their last chance! Don't be surprised to see the conspirators running to Roberts, their latest crony appointment, to try to find a way out. And eternal shame on any member of the senate who lets that one slide without demanding each and every document that could help reveal the truth.

    Please take action NOW, so we can win all victories that are supposed to be ours, and forward this message to everyone else you know.

    If you would like to get alerts like these, you can do so at http://www.usalone.com/in.htm

    Or if you want to cease receiving our messages, just use the function at http://www.usalone.com/out.htm

    This is obviously only a part of a longer message.
  • Please go to the top site to see exactly what YOU can do -- and, DO IT! It is very simple; and, you can do as much or as little as you like. We can all do SOMETHING. United, we are powerful. I am going to go and send some snail-mail letters right now immediately. Oh, and DON'T FORGET TO TELL ALL YOUR FRIENDS!
  • That there is this clear GROUNDSWELL for impeachment of Bush and his cronies [and trying them as War Criminals as well], is the BIG HUGE STORY THAT THE MEDIA ARE NOT COVERING! Only on the Internet, and at Demos where the Impeachment signs sprout like mushrooms after rain, is it VISIBLE to the public, and to each other, what is REALLY going on. I AM SURE THAT THE POLLS IF ANYTHING, UNDERESTIMATE THE HUGE NUMBERS OF AMERICAN CITIZENS, GROWING EACH AND EVERY DAY, WHO DEMAND THAT BUSH BE IMPEACHED NOW!!!!!
