Wictory Wednesday

I've not commented for a few days as the rank political maneuvering and media coverage distorted the Iraqi prison abuse story out of proportion, it seemed pointless and was well covered in the Blogosphere.

Suddenly the media gets it today, for a nanosecond they've paused in their relentless pursuit of George Bush, as yesterday's brutal murder of Nick Berg brought the war on terror back into focus. While the prisoner abuse images are shameful, they are peripheral to our core interests. This horrific dehumanizing video gives terror a personal face. Nick Berg was murdered solely because he was an American.

As much as other nations were shocked by the events of 9/11, it is a peripheral issue to their national interests, they saw airplanes flying into buildings, and not the people.

On that dreadful day all Americans became the falling man and today we are Nick Berg.

John Kerry is on Imus at the moment and his opening remarks? He says we are crushed under the burden of healthcare and gas prices. No, Senator we are crushed under the WTC. Kerry continues to say he can shift the burden for the war in Iraq to others, remove the target from our backs, he is a fool.

It will never happen because the war on terror is not yet upon them, even our allies who are participating in Iraq do not grasp the reality of 9/11 in human terms:

ROME - The scandal of prisoner abuses by U.S. soldiers in Iraq (has dealt a bigger blow to the United States than the Sept. 11 attacks, the Vatican foreign minister told an Italian newspaper.

"The torture? A more serious blow to the United States than Sept. 11. Except that the blow was not inflicted by terrorists but by Americans against themselves," Lajolo was quoted as saying in La Repubblica.

Today is Wictory Wednesday. Every Wednesday, I ask my readers to volunteer and/or donate to the Bush 2004 campaign.

If you've already donated and volunteered for the Bush campaign, then talk to your friends and enlist them in the grass roots effort. Or you may wake up and find John Kerry in the White House and Carl Levin as Secretary of Defense.

If you're a blogger, you can join Wictory Wednesdays simply by putting up a post like this one every Wednesday, asking your readers to volunteer and/or donate to the Bush campaign. And do e-mail to be added to the Wictory Wednesday blogroll, which will be part of the Wictory Wednesday post on all participating blogs:
