June 29, 2006 -- The anti-Iraq war group, Military Families Speak Out (www.mfso.org), is conducting a vigil outside the Cannon House Office Building. Anne Roesler of California, whose son will be soon serving his third Iraq tour with the 82nd Airborne Division, and Elizabeth Frederick of New York, whose boyfriend is serving in Iraq with the New York National Guard, are receiving some surprising comments and rather lukewarm support from Senate and House members, Republican and Democratic. Although the group, which has placed boots and shoes representing dead U.S. military members and Iraqi civilians near the House office buildings, has received support from a few Democrats, the reaction to their vigil by some, including California Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein, has been hostile. One House member passed their display of boots and shoes and turned around and shouted, "Just get over it!" Another staffer said, "don't you people remember what happened on 911?" There were no connections between 911 and Iraq.
U.S. military personnel in Iraq are caught in a dangerous and nightmarish vise created by neo-con politicians in Washington. U.S. troops are being forced to take drugs like Prozac and Seroquel for anxiety and depression. Troops cannot refuse to take the drugs without consequences from their superiors. Resistance by U.S. troops to their orders is also running high. Some U.S. military patrols decline to carry out their "search and kill" missions and, instead, return to their bases claiming they carried out their orders.
Another neo-con outrage: Pentagon forcing U.S. soldiers and Marines in Iraq to take Prozac and other drugs for anxiety and depression.
Incidents of suicide among U.S. troops in Iraq is also reaching troubling levels. There are also reports of defections by U.S. troops to neighboring Turkey, Iran, and Syria, where they can get passage to Europe and Russia.
Incidents of fighting between regular U.S. military personnel and private military contractors, who wear uniforms similar to those worn by regular U.S. soldiers and Marines, is also increasing. U.S. troops are frustrated that they come under attack for atrocities carried out by private contractors who receive triple and quadruple the salaries U.S. military personnel receive. This situation has created a tinderbox between U.S. troops and private contractors.

June 29, 2006 -- Visit Political Chatter After Dark and GOP Scandal Scorecard (upper left column) for recent updates. Dubya quote for the day, "it wasn't always a given that the United States and America would have a close relationship..." Yet additional proof that the 25th Amendment should be invoked without further delay.
June 29, 2006 -- WMR is elated that our truth-reporting has resulted in several European countries that hosted secret CIA prisons and facilitated rendition flights of kidnapped prisoners being called on the carpet by the Council of Europe and European Union. WMR reported details of these prisons and flights. In addition, we congratulate Nepal's resistance leaders, Prachanda, Baburam Bhattarai, and Krishna Bahadur Mahara on their accession to political power in Kathmandu. The Bush administration's stooge, Gyanendra, who overthrew the previous King and his family in a U.S.-inspired and supported coup, fraudulently disguised as a "soap operatic" massacre by a love sick Crown Prince, is now relegated to mere figurehead status. WMR reported on this coup and our reports were confirmed and republished by the Nepal Communist Party and Nepalese newspapers. This editor looks forward one day to meeting Nepal's former rebel leaders in Kathmandu rather than in a remote mountain hideout, as was once the original plan. Nepal's new government should immediately expel U.S. ambassador James Moriarty who continues to support the King and the royalists against the wishes of the Nepalese people. WMR's other investigative reports are also helping the political opposition to Bush stooge dictators in The Gambia, Rwanda, Kazakhstan, Uganda, Equatorial Guinea, Angola, and Chad.
