A tragedy that will, no doubt, be exploited in the American media. I expect to see many heart jerking stories emerge as we move closer to a war with Iran. The Government of the USA must make the enemy as repulsive as can be before they begin the killing of hundreds of mothers, just like her, and count them as a collateral damage... they won't have names or a story behind them...

WASHINGTON, D.C. — July 1, 2010 — The notion that taxpayer-backed loan guarantees for more nuclear power means energy independence in the United States is a hoax that could cost unwary U.S. taxpayers tens of billions of dollars while richly benefiting profitable foreign corporations and non-U.S. workers, according to a new report from the nonprofit Nuclear Information & Resource Service (NIRS).

I would seriously consider gas masks and ozone generators as a way of life ... starting NOW!

I have a google alert set to "Rachel Corrie" and one of the more disgusting things that keeps popping up is a Zionist blogger who keeps saying that Rachel died "playing chicken" with an Israeli bulldozer.
Of course Rachel Corrie was unarmed, was wearing a bright orange vest for visibility, and Israel isn't supposed to carry out operations where civilians could be endangered.
