Rummy is prepared to blame Iraq for anything that happens there:
His list includes a "concern about Saddam Hussein using weapons of mass destruction against his own people and blaming it on us, which would fit a pattern," Mr. Rumsfeld said. He said the document also noted "that he could do what he did to the Kuwaiti oil fields and explode them, detonate, in a way that lost that important revenue for the Iraqi people." -- from the NY Times.

Blaming the victim: standard Republican ideology. The Bushies have been lying all along about war or peace being up to Saddam. If there is war in Iraq, it is solely because of George W. Bush and his group of "genociders." If hundreds of thousands of Iraqis and Americans die, it is the fault of Bush and the genociders. Simple as that. Options abound--they aren't interested. Inspections are working--they don't care. The world is terrified of them, and they love it. The brutality of 9/11 and the senseless mostly unrelated brutality in Afghanistan were just a prelude--war in Iraq will kick off the 21st Century in its quest to surpass the 20th as the bloodiest ever.

Don't give up! Even though W sees himself as some unstoppable running back heading for a touchdown, many in Congress have seen the millions in the streets of this country and others and are starting to take notice. Keep calling your representatives: Members of both the House and the Senate can be reached toll-free through the Capitol switchboard: 800-839-5276. Ask them to stop Bush and to support our troops by bringing them home now. How often have you had the chance to take part in saving thousands, maybe millions of lives? Are you going to pass it up now?
