BULLY BOY PRESS & CEDRIC'S BIX MIX -- AMMAN, JORDAN.
BULLY BOY HAS LEFT THE COUNTRY!
AFTER BEING STOOD UP WEDNESDAY, BULLY BOY MET BRIEFLY WITH IRAQ'S PUPPET NOURI AL-MALIKI.
YOU COULD CUT THE TENSION WITH A CHAINSAW.
AT THE END OF THE MEETING, BULLY BOY LOOKED AL-MALIKI UP AND DOWN AND SAID, "YOU BLEW IT, MISTER. I WAS GOING TO LET YOU GO TO THIRD BASE!"
SPINNING ON HIS HEELS, BULLY BOY STORMED OUT, WENT BACK TO HIS HOTEL SUITE AND BEGAN TRASHING THE PLACE.
HOUSE KEEPING REPORTS THE FLOOR WAS BURIED UNDER A MAZE OF EMPTY LONE STAR BEER CANS, THAT SOMEONE APPEARED TO HAVE URINATED UP AND DOWN 1 WALL, SPRAYED OVER THE TOILET WAS A PICTURE OF JOHN MCCAIN AND OLLIE NORTH ENGAGED IN A VERY FRIENDLY MOMENT, APPARENTLY WIPED HIS BUTT WITH THE DRAPES, BUSTED A MIRROR AND SCRAWLED IN FECES THAT NOURI AL-MALIKI WAS WOEFULLY SMALL.
FROM THE TCI WIRE:
Meanwhile, the Iraq Study Group has issued their findings: (1) All US troops should be brought home immediately; (2) Reparations shall be paid by the US government to Iraq through the United Nations; (3) The US Congress should immediately begin impeachments hearings; (4) A War Crimes Tribunal should hear testimony into the destruction of Falluja; (5) Dexter Filkins shall be charged with crimes against humanity for his 'reporting' on Falluja and, in fact, all of his reporting on or from Iraq.
The findings were published today by the original Iraq Study Group, not the lame Lee Hamilton-James Baker Circle Jerk. The findings are signed by the original chairs: Nina, Tony and Mike. And if the findings seem more democratic than those of the James Baker Circle Jerk, well one was of the people, the other was created to provide cover for the US administration.

And United for Peace and Justice notes:
It takes courage to say that you will not fight -- especially if you are a soldier. As more members of the U.S. military step forward for peace, the peace movement must step forward to support them.
Large numbers are now refusing to serve: The Department of Defense estimates that there are about 8,000 AWOL service members. The GI Rights Hotline (800-394-9544) is currently receiving about 3,000 calls a month.
Most importantly, a growing number of soldiers are speaking out, against the illegality and immorality of the Iraq war and the orders they are being told to carry out. These brave men and women are risking jail time and their futures to stand up against the war. Click here to find out how you can support them.
On Monday, WBAI's Law and Disorder interviewed Jonathan Hutto with Appeal for Redress which is gathering signatures calling for Congress to bring the troops. Signatures of those currently serving in the military. Michael Ratner, Heidi Boghosian, Dalia Hashad and Michael Smith spoke about the historical importance of this and how the rights for those serving were won, not given and Hutto stated that currently they have "a little over 1200" signatures.
War resisters also include Kyle Snyder, Ehren Watada, Joshua Key, Ivan Brobeck, Darrell Anderson, Ricky Clousing, Mark Wilkerson, Camilo Meija, Pablo Paredes, Carl Webb, Stephen Funk, David Sanders, Dan Felushko, Brandon Hughey, Jeremy Hinzman, Corey Glass, Joshua Casteel, Clifford Cornell, Agustin Aguayo, Patrick Hart, Joshua Despain, Katherine Jashinski, and Kevin Benderman.
