The Rape Of Iraq

If you are feeling brave go to Riverbend and read it all:-

They abducted her from her house in an area in southern Baghdad called Hai Al Amil. No- it wasn’t a gang. It was Iraqi peace keeping or security forces- the ones trained by Americans? You know them. She was brutally gang-raped and is now telling the story.
Sabrine Al Janabi said that one of the security forces videotaped/photographed her and threatened to kill her if she told anyone about the rape. Another officer raped her after she saw the investigative judge.-

Get that? After she saw the judge to report the gang rape another cop raped her and told her to keep quiet.

The Trickle Up

-Consider this mind-twisting equation from a well-researched article in the current issue of “Vanity Fair” magazine: Private federal contractors now “absorb the taxes paid by everyone in America with incomes under $100,000.”

Viewed a bit differently, “more than 90 percent of all taxpayers might as well remit everything they owe directly … to some contractor rather than to the IRS.”-

-“There isn’t a politically correct way to put it, but this is what needs to be said: 9/11 was a personal tragedy for thousands of families and a national tragedy for all of America, but it was very, very good for SAIC,” Barlett and Steele write. “In the aftermath of the attacks, the Bush administration launched its Global War on Terror, whose chief consequence has been to channel money by the tens of billions into companies promising they could do something  anything to help. SAIC was ready.” –

-THREE million council house tenants face losing the right to stay in their homes for life.
A Government report out tomorrow is expected to say the current system of social housing is out of date. And it looks likely to pave the way for major reforms including time limits on how long someone can remain in their council home.-

Government has become a racket for scamming the people and handing the tax revenue to their corporate buddies. Discuss.

First they kill Saddam on by birthday, thus overshadowing it and robbing me of a potential gift. Now today it is the double header, mum and eldest niece’s birthdays and this gets leaked:

-US contingency plans for air strikes on Iran extend beyond nuclear sites and include most of the country’s military infrastructure, the BBC has learned.
It is understood that any such attack – if ordered – would target Iranian air bases, naval bases, missile facilities and command-and-control centres. –

So we’re all going out for a meal and further contemplation of why the BBC finally decided to report what most informed people have know for ages will have to wait for later. Can you say ‘softening up’?
