Let's send the president and vice-president to Baghdad.

If only Cheney and Bush had to spend weeks in Baghdad—and not in the Green Zone, either, but taking their chances like the 6,000,000 people Amerika is bringing “democracy” to. Democracy. Not water. Not electricity. Not safe streets. No guarantees about anything.

Gee, I think once they were recognized, Cheney and Bush would meet some really interesting people there.

6 million people, 117 degrees and no water

A crime against humanity committed by the occupying power
For the past 24 hours, Baghdad has had virtually no running water.
Major parts of the city of six million people have lacked running water for six days, while daily high temperatures have ranged from 115 to 120 degrees. The tiny amount of water dripping through the pipes is causing many of those who must drink it to suffer acute intestinal illness.
According to reports, not enough electricity is available to run Baghdad’s water pumps. This in a country with vast energy resources.
