There seems to be no attempt to hide the propaganda, indicating a supreme contempt for the discerning facilities of the American people and other peoples of the world.

although i'm canadian, we seem to have some of the best seats to watch the deterioration of human rights in the US here (of course, it's not just 'human rights' or 'freedom of speech' anymore, it's 'homeland security'). quite sad. and canada seems to start having cravings for watered-down policies like that (federal monitoring of digital communications, sniffers galore, is in the works for this year).

My son is on his way to Iraq right now as I type this message to you. To Mouzell,Iraq and I want to have a map of where he is traveling to. The stupid web sight wont let me have a map of where he is going over there. I hope they are happy now that they have cut themself's off from the rest of the world.
