I was asked by Crokus to pass this on, if you have a comment write it to Crokus, not to me, and I hope you-all read this sentence before you read the article!!!!!!for your own good!!!!I am tired of being "bashed" by my so-called friends on care2 for the articles that I post, and that I didn't write. If you would only take the time to read the header above the article, the name of the person "who" wrote the story is there.

Our troops, our boys and girls in IRAQ, have essentially been ABANDONED by this Administration. They are STUCK over there, the war in Iraq will NEVER end [Bush himself said so!], they will NEVER be brought back home by this Administration, NEVER. Got that? NEVER. The Iraq war did NOT bring Bush the "popularity" he thought a War President would get; so, Bush [and the Dems and Repugs in Congress, who are COWARDS!], have ABANDONED the troops over there, have LOST INTEREST, and think the U.S. public will LOSE INTEREST IN OUR TROOPS OVER THERE TOO.

Yes, on to Iraq, the next war! Nuke 'em! THAT will get the attention of the American public! FORGET our troops and the unpopular War and Occupation of Iraq! DON'T PUBLICIZE THE STATISTICS THAT U.S. TROOPS CONTINUE TO DIE EACH AND EVERY DAY IN IRAQ!

U.S. troops must first KNOW, must BE TOLD {by us! who else will do it?} that they are ABANDONED by the Bush Administration. Then, they might vote with their feet and decide to leave, en masse, on their own!



ABANDONED, YOU GOT IT? ABANDONED. NO hope of victory, NO end. Just sit there and get shot at and DIE, one by one by one. Who cares anyway? for what great cause? one by one by one by one....... SEVERAL, more than one, EACH AND EVERY DAY.

The ONLY meaning the bloody Iraq War NOW has for Bush, is, it is making him unpopular. So -- the solution is, just FORGET it! Start a NEW war! with Nukes, not Troops!


They might as well lay down their weapons and start walking away. The Iraqi Resistance has stated, it will NOT fire on them if they do that. Obviously, that would be greatly to the ADVANTAGE of the Iraqi Resistance, to get rid of the Occupation with the least amount of bloodshed!

Why suffer and die and lose your arms and legs, or your MIND, for a "leader" who ABANDONS you??? WHY WHY WHY??????

VISUALIZE ALL TROOPS LAYING DOWN THEIR WEAPONS, REFUSING TO FIGHT ANY MORE, AND "VOTING WITH THEIR FEET". IT IS POSSIBLE. The Iraqi Resistance has stated, it WILL NOT FIRE on troops who do so. It would obviously be to the advantage of the Iraqi Resistance, to let the troops leave the country with the LEAST amount of trouble and bloodshed!

There is a Movement to visualize this at NOON each day, whichever Time Zone one is in.
Try it! It can't hurt! Visualization is known to be effective, i.e. in healing.

Call it meditation, prayer, visualization, whatever you like.

The Progressive Resource/Action Cooperative (PRC) presents...

Professor Francis A. Boyle
"The National Case to Impeach President George Bush, Jr."

Tuesday, March 28 at 7pm
213 Gregory Hall**
On the U of I Quad

Free and open to the public!

On Tuesday, March 28, the PRC will be hosting Professor Francis A.
Boyle, arguing "The National Case to Impeach President George Bush, Jr."
  The event will begin at 7pm and will conclude with a discussion and a
question and answer session.

George Bush, Jr. was returned to the U.S. presidency by voters convinced
of his moral and leadership qualities. But his moral failures were
exposed through the Downing Street Memo's proof of systematic lying
concerning Iraq's possession of WMDs and their connection to al-Qaeda.
And now, his leadership on the domestic front has been proved to be
criminally negligent in response to the ravages of Hurricane Katrina.

Only impeachment offers Americans a swift and appropriate recourse!

George W. Bush must be impeached for lying in leading the nation to war
in Iraq. And President Bush, Vice President Cheney, and Secretary of
Homeland Security Michael Chertoff must be impeached for denying Equal
Protection of the Laws to the Katrina Victims because of their economic
status and race, in violation of the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments to
the United States Constitution.

Francis A. Boyle is a leading American expert in international law. He
was responsible for drafting the Biological Weapons Anti-Terrorism Act
of 1989, the American Implementing Legislation for the 1972 Biological
Weapons Convention. He served on the Board of Directors of Amnesty
International (1988-1992), and represented Bosnia-Herzegovina at the
World Court. Professor Boyle teaches International Law at the University
of Illinois, Champaign. His books include "The Future of International
Law and American Foreign Policy" and "Foundations of World Order: The
Legalist Approach to International Relations 1898-1921." He holds a
Doctor of Law Magna Cum Laude as well as a Ph.D. in Political Science, both
from Harvard University.

This event is being cosponsored by: Activist Forum, Anti-War Anti-Racism
Effort (AWARE), Campus Greens, Graduate and Professional Students of
Color, Illinois Disciples Foundation, National Organization for Women
(UI Chapter), School for Designing A Society, and Vietnam Veterans
Against the War (CU Chapter).

**The event will be held in 213 Gregory Hall. Gregory Hall is located at
the SW corner of the U of I Quad. Gregory Hall is located on many of the
CU bus routes. The event is wheelchair accessible.

The Progressive Resource/Action Cooperative (PRC) is a multi-issue,
multi-tactical activist organization. The PRC is a program of the
Illinois Disciples Foundation and a Registered Student Organization at
the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

Interested in getting involved in activism on campus? Check out our
weekly meetings on Wednesdays at 7:30pm at the Illinois Disciples
Foundation (located at NW corner of Springfield and Wright in Champaign,
close to campus).

This is not a new form of cancer, but its often a misdiagnosed one,  and rarer than many forms but hardly new...Often its mistaken for a rash or allergic reaction and treated as such...It attacks the nipple area,,, and travels through the milk ducts if not found...If caught in early stages, only the nipple may end up being lost..It does not have to cost you your breast.
....So beware for rashes or irritations in that area...If it doesnt go away have them do a biopsy on it..I passed all my mamograms...One one week before the biopsy was taken...I went to several doctors too...And all of them thought wrong...Finally THe lady who did my mamogram saw how irritated it was and was starting to bleed and agreed with me something was really wrong..I had to keep mine bandaged at all times with ointment on it to relieve the pain....She  spoke to the dr about a biopsy...If we hadnt insisted It might never have been diagnosed.
..I am still here so dont let these send outs frighten you...But do insist on a biopsy if an irration does not go away in a reasonable amount of time...Go to a doctor who will listen...
There are two types of pagets one is a form of breast Cancer, one effects the bones..they are different....but.
Any cancer can spread..That is why its so important to get treatment...
Mine was severe and I am still here...Do watch symtoms and please insist on a biopsy if you have symptoms that dont go away...It does not respond to treatments that typically work on skin reactions..Insist..By the way my rash started on my breast...not my neck.....hugzz..jaz wrote:

Subject:  New form of Breast Cancer  

      A gal in our church also has this type of cancer which began as a  rash on the back of her neck.  She went to a dermatologist for two months before her regular doctor biopsies it.  Last Monday evening the cancer doctors from Little Rock had a forum, and not one of them mentioned this rash as a symptom.  What is going on here?
  New kind of Breast Cancer  -  DO NOT DELETE
      Please forward to all of the women in your lives . Mothers,
  daughters, sisters, aunts, friends, etc.
      In November, a rare kind of breast cancer was found. A lady developed a rash on her breast, similar to that of young mothers who are nursing.
      Because her mammogram had been clear, the doctor treated her with
  antibiotics for infections. After 2 rounds and it continued to get worse,  her doctor sent her for another mammogram, and this time it showed a mass.
      A biopsy found a fast growing malignancy. Chemo was started in order to shrink the growth; then a mastectomy; then a full round of  Chemo; then radiation. After about 9 months of intense treatment, she was given a clean bill of health.
   One year of living each day to its fullest. Then the cancer  returned
  to the liver area. She took 4 treatments and decided that she wanted quality of life, not the after effects of Chemo. She had 5 great months and she  planned each detail of the final days. After just a few days of needing  morphine, she slipped away saying she had done what God had sent her into  the world to do and now it was her time to go.  PLEASE be alert to any  thing that is not normal, and be persistent in getting help as soon as possible.

      Her message is shown below:

      Paget's Disease: This is a rare form of breast cancer, and is on the
  outside of the breast, on the nipple and aureole. It appeared as a rash,  which later became a lesion with a crusty outer edge. I would not have ever suspected it to be breast cancer but it was. My nipple never seemed any different to me, but the rash bothered me, so I went to the doctor for that. Sometimes, it itched and was sore, but other than that it didn't  bother me. It was just ugly and a nuisance, and could not be cleared up with all the creams prescribed by my doctor and dermatologist for the dermatitis on my eyes just prior to this outbreak. They seemed a little concerned but did not warn me it could be cancerous. Now, I suspect there is  a reason, not many women  out there who know a lesion or rash on the nipple or aureole can be breast  cancer.  Mine started out as a single red pimple on the aureole. One of the  biggest problems with Paget's disease of the nipple is that the symptoms  appear to be harmless. It is frequently thought to be a skin inflammation  or infection, leading to unfortunate delays in detection and care.  What are  the symptoms?

      The symptoms include:

       1. A persistent redness, oozing, and crusting of your nipple causing it to itch and burn. (As I stated, mine did not itch or burn much, and  had no oozing I was aware of, but it did have a crust along the outer edge on one side.)

   2. A sore on your nipple that will not heal. (Mine was on the aureole area with a whitish thick looking area in center of nipple).

   3. Usually only one nipple is ffected.  How is it diagnosed? Your doctor will do a physical exam and should suggest having a mammogram of both breasts, done immediately. Even though the redness, oozing and crusting closely resemble dermatitis (inflammation of the skin), your doctor should suspect cancer if the sore is only on one breast.  Your doctor should order
  ; a biopsy of your sore to confirm what is going on.

This message should be taken seriously and passed on to as many of your relatives and friends as possible; it could save someone's life.

My breast cancer has spread and metastasized to my bones after receiving mega doses of chemotherapy, 28 treatments of radiation and taking Tamaxofin. If
  this had been diagnosed as breast cancer in the beginning, perhaps it would not have spread...


This is sad as women are not aware of Paget's disease. If, by passing this
  around on the e-mail, we can make others aware of  it, and its potential  danger, we are helping women everywhere.

Please, if you can, t ake a moment to forward this message to as many people as possible, especially to your family and friends. It only takes a moment, yet the results could save a life.
