Congressman Pete Stark has caught flak for saying these words “You don’t have money to fund the war or children. But you’re going to spend it to blow up innocent people if we can get enough kids to grow old enough for you to send to Iraq to get their heads blown off for the president’s amusement.” He stated those words lashing out at both President Bush and his Republican colleagues concerning how much the United States government is spending in Iraq as opposed to the SCHIP program.   Having seen the most horrific photos no one should ever have to view which are a product of this illegal war, I would advise Rep. Stark to stick to his guns.  I would also tell him not apologize or retract his comments made of the president and the comments directed at his Republican colleagues who failed to come to the aid of our children.  The time has come for any protection of Bush to come to an end.  That is also directed towards all who feel he should apologize. I do believe that anyone who can knowingly lie sending our men and women in the armed services to their death is both morally corrupt, and is unable to empathize let alone sympathize with those that have died.  In my opinion, Bush is as demonic as they come.  By lying us into this war, he has proven to all, he has no soul. In this video, you will clearly see him joking about not being able to find WMDs at the annual White House Correspondent’s Dinner.  This was taped at the 2004 dinner and interspersed in this video are the laughs coming from those attending.  I would like to know what is so funny about sending our men and women to die.  I would like to know what is so funny when the L.A. Times reported one million innocent Iraqis died.  Also you will see throughout this video are images of pure suffering.  By joking about this grave matter, Bush is showing signs of “amusement”.  So, what Rep. Stark said was correct. Stark in mentioning “heads blown off” below are some graphic photos of our soldiers which prove his point.  I think it is about time these pictures are viewed by all even if they turn your stomach viewing them.  I have even included pictures of innocent Iraqi children. (Article continues on with graphic photos) Author’s comments: I have decided to leave the graphics out in distributing this article, but should you wish to view them, you can find them at this link:  Author’s email address is,
