Soul Sisters?

Laura Bush, 3/8/04: "I want the women of Iraq to know how much American women stand with them." (via TMW)

And what if, instead of standing, they're lying down?

I hope you're considering writing an article about this. I know you've published some articles in the past, and I think this would be a significant contribution to a willfully overlooked aspect of this war.

Perhaps you should also look into what it's like for US women serving over there. I thought this story was so sad and really has changed my view about alot of things concerning the military.

All women, serving in Iraq as well as those who live there should just look at the ceiling and think of Democracy (and sweet Jesus). In fact, all women should do just that.

It will be very Churchillian of us to do so, and Laura Bush would heartily approve.

That statement of Mrs Bush is SICK.

Since we invadeted they have lost most of their rights, live in fear of violance most of the time. Have no security and their standard of living is heading south at the speed of a bullet.

In addition they may get killed as an insurgent because of stray bullets or bombs or being in the wrong place at the wrong time. And maybe they become a statistic in ending up in an american detention center because they are related to someone the army wants, and so on.

I guess we are such great liberaters of woman and are real good in bringing the good things of democracy.

Oh, let us not forget that by using depleted uranium we make sure that ever greater number of children get cancer and since there is now less clean water available they will die of infectious deseases at ever greater rates.

I am sure the Iraqi woman are very greateful to all the blessings Mr and Mrs Bush have brought them.
