Baghdad’s water still undrinkable 6 years after invasion

McClatchy Newspapers, March 18, 2009
BAGHDAD — The stench of human waste is enough to tell Falah abu Hasan that his drinking water is bad. His infant daughter Fatma’s continuous illnesses and his own constant nausea confirm it.

“We are the poor. No one cares if we get sick and die,” he said. “But someone should do something about the water. It is dirty. It brings disease.”

Everybody complains about the water in Baghdad , and few are willing to risk drinking it from the tap. Six years after the U.S. invaded Iraq , 36 percent of Baghdad’s drinking water is unsafe, according to the Iraqi Environment Ministry — in a good month. In a bad month, it’s 90 percent. Cholera broke out last summer, and officials fear another outbreak this year.

“Even if the water is good today, no one would trust it,” grocer Hussein Jawad said. He said that about 40 percent of his business was selling bottled drinking water, crates of which he’s stacked 7 feet high on the sidewalk. “We’ve learned to be afraid.”

Ron Paul on the D.L. Hughley Show

Dr. Paul was on the D.L. Hughley show last night. I have to agree with D.L. Hughley, Ron Paul makes “too much sense to be a Republican” (or a Democrat).

Ron Paul on Iraq: We Killed A Million Of Their People!

This is now the second longest war in U.S. history after Vietnam, with a price tag around $3 Trillion and over a million lives lost in a nation turned upside down. And yet there are still those who are claiming victory and calling it a “success”. Help me out with this, where was the victory again?

With Obama’s plan to “end” the war in over a year but still leave a large portion of troops in Iraq, as usual, its Ron Paul and Dennis Kucinich making the most sense in Washington.

“You cannot leave combat troops in a foreign country to conduct combat operations and call it the end of the war. You can’t be in and out at the same time,” said Rep. Dennis Kucinich, D-Ohio. “We must bring a conclusion to this sorry chapter in American history.”

Keith Olbermann Blasts Republican Fear Mongering and 9/11 Hypocrisy

Keith Olbermann rightly blasts John McCain and his band of neocon sycophants for their hypocrisy and fear mongering at the Republican National Convention in regards to 9/11, Bin Laden, and the so-called “war on terror”:

Jesse Ventura On The Economy, A Possible Senate Run, the Media, & More 7.14.08

Jesse Ventura’s July 14th interview on Larry King:

Sounds like he’s not going to run. This is very disappointing, but I understand why he would be concerned for his family, and how that would influence his decision. Add that to the lack of support from the country for truth and good government and its a wonder anyone with integrity and a conscience gets involved in politics. However, the nation will be worse off without him in the Senate.

Here’s the first part of yesterday’s interview on the Alex Jones radio show:

Salt Lake Mayor Debates Fox News

With the exception of clips like this, more than a few minutes of the Faux News makes me ill so I never watch it. (I am opposed to torture… ) On top of the nauseating propaganda spewed by arrogant/ignorant hosts what’s up with their color scheme?

Anyway, you gotta love the honesty and courage of Salt Lake City Mayor Rocky Anderson as he is questioned by the Fox thugs about his opposition to the war and to Bush in general:
