Isn't It TimeDr. Sam Hamod

Isn’t it time America finally came out with the truth about the situation in Iraq and Afghanistan?
it time that Conde Rice quit lying about the illegal detention of thousands of Muslims in prisons in the world?
it time that Rumsfeld finally admitted that he had no plan for Iraq except to invade and hope for the best—and that
he has failed as a Secretary of War?
Isn’t it time that Gonzales was told to follow the U.S. Constitution and
Bill of Rights and quit trying to usurp them?
Isn’t it time that Dick Cheney quit trying to call others a "liar"
when he is the biggest of liars, the pot calling the kettle black?
Isn’t it time that John Kerry finally becomes
a man instead of a simpering little boy trying to be a man, a senator?
Isn’t it time that some Democrat had the
same courage as Congressman Murtha, to say the war is lost and that it is time for our troops to come home?
it time for someone in the Office of the Budget to stand up and say that Greenspan and Bush have put America into the worst
financial crisis on our history?
Isn’t it time that some of our generals stood up and said that Bush and his
strategists, especially Wolfowitz, Rumsfeld, Cheney and the rest don’t know a damn thing about real war, but only know
it from the cheap Hollywood movies they saw?
Isn’t about time that some soldier spit in Bush’s face the
next time he tells the troops he supports them, and then goes back and cuts their salaries, their veteran benefits, their
hospital plans, their pension plans and their equipment in order for his friends to make more money on the war in Iraq?
it about time that some of the troops have the courage to put down their guns and tell their commanders, NO—if you want
to go out and kill Iraqis, then you do it, but I am ready to go to the brig rather than fight in this illegal, this immoral
war, one more day?
Isn’t it about time that American military leaders admit they illegally used illegal weapons
in Fallujah on civilians, weapons such as white phosophorous, depleted uranium, cluster bombs, cluster shells, and other gas
type weapons? (All in violation of the Geneva Conventions and other humane codes of war.)
Isn’t it time that
the American public quit mouthing Christianity and started living it, and ask themselves, "How Many Iraqis Would Jesus Have
Isn’t it about time that Americans quit believing the false Christians like Pat Robertson, Jerry Falwell
and their ilk who are leading them astray, away from the teaching of Jesus and taking them to the world of the Golden Calf
and the world of greed, dominion and inhumanity?
Isn’t it time that Americans start asking why every Israel citizen
gets an average subsidy from American taxpayers the amount of $48,000.00 (that is known, and who knows how much more is hidden
in omnibus bills)? When was the last time the U.S. government gave you money?
Isn’t it time the American people
decided they didn’t see any reason to send their children, husbands or wives to Iraq or Afghanistan until Bush, Cheney,
Kerry, Biden, Falwell, Robertson, Wolfowitz and Rumsfeld sent their children or close kin?
Why is that no Congressman
or Senator has any children in the battle zones of Iraq?
Why is it that America is freeing the Afghans who raised the
poppies, to once again raise the biggest opium poppy crop in history, that will be turned into narcotics around the world—is
it because the American corporations will get a cut of this illegal dope money? You can bet there is some analogy between
this and the narcotic crops in Viet Nam that made a lot of politicians and big corporations a lot of money.
Taliban government was wiping out all the opium poppy growing—perhaps America didn’t want this to happen. It’s
all very complex.
These are just some questions that keep popping up in my mind—as well as my wonder at why Halliburton
pays little or no taxes to the U.S. government because they are now, and have been, an offshore corporation.
things to think about when you start to praise Bush and his minions, and wonder what is happening to your loved ones who are
killed and maimed in Iraq, when your taxes go up and your wallet goes down and the dollar is laughed at in the world’s
