The Capture of Saddam: Great News for Americans and Iraqis, Bad News for the Liberals and the Main Stream News Media !

Written by J.R.

The recent capture of Saddam Hussein byrepparttar U.S. Military was great news forrepparttar 125990 American and Iraqi people. Across our nationrepparttar 125991 news of his capture was met with hoops, hollers, and smiles. The news was especially good for Iraqi Americans. Cheers went up atrepparttar 125992 New York Jets- Pittsburgh Steelers game on that Sunday, after President Bush's announcement was broadcast overrepparttar 125993 stadium loud speakers. Arab Americans were dancing inrepparttar 125994 streets, celebrating, waving American and Iraqi flags. What a great day forrepparttar 125995 Iraqi people and what a great day for America andrepparttar 125996 U.S. Military!

The Iraqi newspapers reacted with joy and relief torepparttar 125997 news of Saddam's capturer, one ofrepparttar 125998 publications printing Iraq was a "Nation swimming in Sunshine".

The main stream news media in America apparently didn't haverepparttar 125999 same enthusiasm as it's Iraqi counterparts. A Washington Post reporter stated on NBC Meetrepparttar 126000 Press. "The one thing to remember is that, even though we've got Saddam Hussein, Osama Bin Laden is still out there." A New York Times reporter wrote that Hussein's capture was a Bush Vendetta. Today Show host Katie Couric called Saddams capture mostly symbolic. A Boston Globe reporter whined that Saddams capture "changes nothing". A Jordanian newspaper, Al-Rai Daily, even tried to blame a 70 year old woman's death onrepparttar 126001 capture of Saddam Hussein, stating thatrepparttar 126002 woman was so overcome with sadness that she died of a heart attack. (Give me a break)

Of course you hadrepparttar 126003 mixed message statements ofrepparttar 126004 No Clue Nine (democratic nomination candidates) mostly stating that Saddam's capture was a good thing BUT... . You had Rep. Baghdad Jim Mc Dermott who stated that he believes thatrepparttar 126005 Bush administration knew all along where Saddam was and waited until now to get him to gain political points. Not to be outdone by a fellow democrat, former secretary of State underrepparttar 126006 Clinton administration, Madeline Aldim, oops I mean Albright, suggested to Roll Call Editor Mort kondracke, thatrepparttar 126007 Bush administration may have already caught Osama Bin Laden and was waiting until next October to releaserepparttar 126008 information as an 'October Surprise'.

The Case For Terri Schiavo's Right To Live !

Written by J.R.

By now anyone who watchesrepparttar news onrepparttar 125989 television, listens to news onrepparttar 125990 radio, or reads a newspaper has heard ofrepparttar 125991 Terri Schiavo case. Terri Schiavo, a woman, who at age 26, collapsed and suffered brain damage under ambiguous circumstances, is said to be in a constant vegetative state according to her husband, Michael Schiavo. Mr. Schiavo wants to have her feeding tube removed so that she will die and says that's what Terri would have wanted.

The Schindlers, Terri's parents, have been fighting a 10 year legal battle with Mr. Schiavo, their son-in-law, in regards to Terri's condition, and maintain that she could be rehabilitated through therapy. The Schindlers argue that Terri is alert, wants to live.

Terri Schiavo did not leave any written documentation that she wanted to die if she were ever in this circumstance, all we have to go by isrepparttar 125992 word of her husband who states that Terri had told him that she would not want to be kept alive by artificial means if anything happened to her. Some questions arise here. Did Terri actually say this? If she did, was it said in passing, figuring it would never really happen to her?

Who among us has not said this to someone in passing if we saw someone in this condition. But do we really mean it? We say a lot of foolish things in life when we are young and not confronted withrepparttar 125993 actual circumstances that Terri now lives.

Other questions need to be answered. Shortly after Terri suffered brain damage, Michael Schiavo sued for medical malpractice. After telling a jury that he intended to care for Terri forrepparttar 125994 rest of his life, he was awarded a sizeable sum to do so. According to a lawsuit filed byrepparttar 125995 Schindlers, Schiavo who was already involved in other relationships, decided on another course of action, interfering with Terri's medical and rehabilitative therapy, and later seeking to end her life by filing an for authorization to discontinue artificial life support.

What happened to Mr. Schiavo's claim that Terri would not want to live under these circumstances when he sued for malpractice and said he would take care of Terri forrepparttar 125996 rest of his life? What happened to Mr. Schiavo's wedding vows to Terri, "In sickness and in health".
