Mark the Anniversary of the Iraq occupation with your neighbors and loved ones


Monday marks the fourth anniversary of the invasion of Iraq because the weapons of mass destruction they had were an imminent threat to the United States. Despite that being not true, we are still there, and to date more than 3,200 U.S. Servicemen and Women have been killed - including 135 with Michigan ties and nine from Livingston County; more than the entire 16-year conflict in Vietnam - and almost 100,000 have lost limbs and suffered massive head injures.

There will be vigils marking the deadly anniversary all over the country and state, and for us in Mid-Michigan there are at least four vigils within quick driving distance.

Over in neighboring Oakland County in Milford, a vigil will be held at 7 p.m. at Milford Central Park at N. Main Street between Huron & Liberty. From US-23 take the M-59 (Hartland) exit. M-59 east to Milford Rd in Highland. Take Milford Rd south through downtown. Central Park is on the right just past Liberty St. From I-96 take the Milford/New Hudson exit north on Milford Rd which ends at G.M. Rd. Turn right on G.M. which turns into Huron. At the 1st traffic light turn left on N. Main St. Watch for the Park on your left.

A peace vigil will be held at 5:30 p.m. at the Post office in Chelsea, 200 S. Main Street.

A candlelight vigil will be held at 7:30 p.m. at Liberty Plaza Park in Ann Arbor, at the southwest corner of E. Liberty and S. Division.

Another candlelight vigil will be held at 8 p.m. in Ann Arbor at the Corner of Kingsley & Ashley.

Guru, Your blog shows your true colors. Being a supposed ex - service man as you state numerous times, you would think you would be more sympathetic to the brave American citizens that sacrificed their lives so you can post this pathetic Blog. At least the Biased Moveon site has the respect that you lack to say” We’ll solemnly honor the sacrifice made by more than 3,000 servicemen and women, and we'll contemplate the path ahead of us”. You are truly a liberal hypocrite. Actions speak louder that words and your post again shows your true colors.
And for your next post tell us how Yellow Cake Joe Wilson’s story is the gospel truth and again the Plame was a covert agent that drove to Langley every day for years and she was undercover.

Question Guru was that you in the code Pink dress behind Plame? That was most likely you or one of your ex-service man buddies as he/she was in the Navy same as you.
And for the record this is a fact from the recent hearing as to Plame Not being a covert undercover agent.

Victoria Toensing Stated in Henry Waxmans House Government Oversight Committee. Hearing

“How could you say that? How could you say she wasn't covert?” Waxman

“Well, because she wasn't. I wrote the statute.” Toensing

“I'm not asking for your credentials.” Waxman

“Well, my credentials are how I know. I wrote the law. She was not covered by the law.” Toensing

Yes, hate America, this blog does show my true colors. That is of a patriotic American who supports and loves his country. If fact, so much so that I wore a uniform for 20 years to uphold and defend the Constitution instead of giving it lip service like you and people like you do.

I am more than sympathetic to the brave American citizens that sacrificed their lives, and that’s why I am going to make sure they are only going to be placed in harm’s way when the security of this country is at stake. Cleary that is not the case in Iraq nor has it ever been the case.

How am I hypocrite? I put my money where my mouth is. I served. Have you? How can I not be a hypocrite? Agree with you? Never.

No, the Yellow Cake story was a lie, and Bush knew it when he used it in the State of the Union speech in 2003. And yes, Plame was a covert agent.

What does “Was that me in the code Pink dress behind Plame” mean? I know you are a brilliant writer, but you will have to explain the insult to me because I don’t get it. Yes I was in the Navy and proud of it.

I fail to see what a Republican attorney and friend of Robert Novak have to do with Valerie Plame’s status. After you answer that you can crawl back in your hole.

You should refrain from sending these drunken rants of yours just after getting home from an all-nighter, hate America.
