Words have power! If we spend 24 hours a day accepting the White House and Federal Government's terminology and semantics framing reality, then we are already at a terrible disadvantage, for we have already bought into their deadly thought-forms. So let's begin by attacking their malevolent thought-forms and deflating and destroying them. Perhaps none is so disingenuous and malicious as the operational name for the entire rape of Iraq, what these criminals call "Operation Iraqi Freedom".

What does invading a country, bombing the Hell out of it, incarcerating and torturing its citizens, slaughtering or acquiescing to the slaughter of some 600,000 or more of them and counting, driving millions of them into internal and external exile, and engineering the theft of their oil resources have to do with freedom?

Absolutely nothing, so why do we even tolerate this misrepresentation? Let's call a spade a spade. The agressions against Iraq amount to genocide against its population, every bit as deadly as the one in Darfur, and which has been ongoing since the severe sanctions imposed after the first Gulf War. So please, from now on, do not give any credibility to the Bush Crime Syndicate by paying lip-service to their semantics and the ugly realities behind them, starting with OPERATION IRAQI GENOCIDE.

And there are miles more of semantics to retranslate from Double Speak back into reality, so let us wade into this linguistic sewer and start draining it, as stinking as it may be.
