"Blocking Property of Certain Persons Who Threaten Stabilization Efforts in Iraq" provides the President with the authority to confiscate the assets of whoever opposes the US led war. Under this executive order, opposing the war becomes an illegal act.
=================================
The ONLY answer to this situation, is to MUTINY FOR PEACE.
MUTINY FOR PEACE.
You may be noticing, that CONGRESS IS TAKING NO ACTION;
AND WILL TAKE NO ACTION.
So DON'T BE SURPRISED if NOTHING happens there.
You are DELUDING yourselves if you think the answer lies with Congress.
NOBLE EFFORT, guys, thank you, and I am doing it too.
Knowing that IT HAS NO CHANCE OF WORKING.

The ANSWER LIES WITH THE ARMY.
Bush/Cheney are COUNTING on the Army, to carry out
and ENFORCE their Dictatorial Decrees. With GUNS.
But, the Army are OUR SONS AND DAUGHTERS.
The Army is NOT ROBOTS, NOT ALIENS FROM OUTER SPACE.
 
The Army must BREAK THE HABIT OF BLIND OBEDIENCE,
subservience to a Commander-in-Chief who is
NOT WORTHY OF ANYONE'S OBEDIENCE OR RESPECT.
Bush is COUNTING ON the Army. If the Army will shoot, on Bush's orders,
an Iraqi, the same Army will shoot, on Bush's orders, YOU.
MUTINY FOR PEACE is the ONLY solution.

I probably will be one of those who
"has my property confiscated" for saying this.
But, WE MUST LET THE ARMY KNOW, THAT WE SUPPORT THEM 
WHEN THEY MUTINY FOR PEACE.

We have ALREADY lost our Democratic Rights. Congress is AFRAID.
The next {s}elections WON'T BE HELD; unless the Repug thugs can STEAL THEM.

MUTINY FOR PEACE. MUTINY FOR PEACE.
MUTINY FOR PEACE. MUTINY FOR PEACE.
Tell the Troops the Truth of what is happening here.
Then the Troops will know what to do.
If the Troops lose the Will to fight, THERE IS NO POWER ON EARTH
THAT CAN MAKE THEM FIGHT
. No threat, and no punishment can make
Troops fight, if they lose the Will to fight.

MUTINY FOR PEACE. Believe me, it's our ONLY HOPE.

"In substance, under this executive order, opposing the war becomes an illegal act.

The Executive Order criminalizes the antiwar movement. It is intended to "blocking property" of US citizens and organizations actively involved in the peace movement. It allows the Department of Defense to interfere in financial affairs and instruct the Treasury to "block the property" and/or confiscate/ freeze the assets of "Certain Persons" involved in antiwar activities. It targets those "Certain Persons" in America, including civil society organizations, who oppose the Bush Administration's "peace and stability" program in Iraq, characterized, in plain English, by an illegal occupation and the continued killing of innocent civilians.

The Executive Order also targets those "Certain Persons" who are "undermining efforts to promote economic reconstruction", or who, again in plain English, are opposed to the confiscation and privatization of Iraq's oil resources, on behalf of the Anglo-American oil giants.

The order is also intended for anybody who opposes Bush's program of "political reform in Iraq", in other words, who questions the legitimacy of an Iraqi "government" installed by the occupation forces.

Moreover, those persons or nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), who provide bona fide humanitarian aid to Iraqi civilians, and who are not approved by the US Military or its lackeys in the US sponsored Iraqi puppet government are also liable to have their financial assets confiscated.

The executive order violates the First, Fourth and Fifth Amendments of the US Constitution. It repeals one of the fundamental tenets of US democracy, which is the right to free expression and dissent. The order has not been the object of discussion in the US Congress. So far, it has not been addressed by the US antiwar movement, in terms of a formal statement.

Apart from a bland Associated Press wire report, which presents the executive order as "an authority to use financial sanctions", there has been no media coverage or commentary of a presidential decision which strikes at the heart of the US Constitution.. "
===========================================
THIS ORDER, AS YOU MAY NOTICE, DOES MORE THAN MERELY
CRIMINALIZE THE ANTI-WAR MOVEMENT.
IT SEEKS TO LEGITIMATIZE THE SEIZURE OF IRAQ'S
OIL RESOURCES BY BUSH/CHENEY/HALLIBURTON;
AN OUTRIGHT THEFT NO BETTER THAN A BURGLARY.

The U.S. Troops who are assisting their Commander-in-THIEF
with this BURGLARY and OUTRIGHT THEFT
, are actually, if
they ONLY KNEW IT
, NO BETTER THAN HIT MEN AND HIT
WOMEN FOR THE MAFIA, FOR A KLEPTOCRACY OUT-OF-CONTROL.

THE TROOPS ABSOLUTELY MUST BE TOLD THE TRUTH OF
WHAT THEY ARE PARTICIPATING IN. THEY MUST. THEY MUST
BE TOLD THE TRUTH, AND ALL THE TRUTH.
Then the Troops themselves will know what to do with this information.

MUTINY FOR PEACE.
That is the ONLY way to END THIS LONG NIGHTMARE,
which is getting WORSE.
Aside from the deaths and their OWN injuries and
psychological disabilities, WHAT SORT OF WORLD
WILL THE TROOPS BE COMING HOME TO???

Unless THEY THEMSELVES STOP FIGHTING in Iraq
and MUTINY FOR PEACE????????????? 
        

"Silence, they say, is the voice of complicity.
But silence is impossible.
Silence screams.
Silence is a message,
just as doing nothing is an act.
Let who you are ring out & resonate
in every word & every deed.
Yes, become who you are.
There's no sidestepping your own being
or your own responsibility.
What you do is who you are.
You are your own comeuppance.
You become your own message.
You are the message."

In the Spirit of Crazy Horse
---Leonard Peltier
===========================
The troops must actually be very near to Mutiny now, for this Executive Order, which reflects Bush's FEAR, to come at this time.
If your country has any Troops in Iraq or Afghanistan, this applies equally to YOUR country's troops.
If you are near any American bases in any country, in Europe, Asia, or wherever, YOU CAN TALK TO THE TROOPS THERE.
If you have family or friends in the Military, YOU ARE IN AN ESPECIALLY GOOD POSITION TO TALK TO THE TROOPS; TO TELL THE TROOPS THE TRUTH.
BMT
[The TRUTH is, that they are being HIT MEN AND HIT WOMEN FOR BUSH/CHENEY.
That is the ONLY TRUTH. Many Troops more-than-suspect-it ALREADY. It should NOT BE THAT DIFFICULT, in many cases, to TALK TO THE TROOPS. There are also means like Posters where the troops can see them, Leaflets and Flyers, Signs in demos, and GRAFFITI!]
[A really good opportunity for Americans, is when TROOPS COME HOME ON LEAVE BEFORE RE-DEPLOYMENT. TELL THE TROOPS WHY IT IS IN THE INTERESTS OF THEIR COUNTRY, THEIR COMMUNITIES, THEIR FAMILIES, AND EVEN OF THEIR ARMY BUDDIES, TO
NOT RE-DEPLOY!!! It is the Troops' PATRIOTIC DUTY TO NOT RE-DEPLOY.]
