Stop the USA Killing Machine Now!

Two Brothers (Pat on the Left) - One Is Now Dead!


Oct 19 2006   *   By Kevin Tillman

Editor’s note: Kevin Tillman joined the Army with his brother Pat in 2002, and they served together in Iraq and Afghanistan.  Pat was killed in Afghanistan on April 22, 2004. Kevin, who was discharged in 2005, has written a powerful, must-read document.

It is Pat’s birthday on November 6, and elections are the day after.  It gets me thinking about a conversation I had with Pat before we joined the military.  He spoke about the risks with signing the papers.  How once we committed, we were at the mercy of the American leadership and the American people.  How we could be thrown in a direction not of our volition.  How fighting as a soldier would leave us without a voice… until we get out. 

Much has happened since we handed over our voice:

Somehow we were sent to invade a nation because it was a direct threat to the American people, or to the world, or harbored terrorists, or was involved in the September 11 attacks, or received weapons-grade uranium from Niger, or had mobile weapons labs, or WMD, or had a need to be liberated, or we needed to establish a democracy, or stop an insurgency, or stop a civil war we created that can’t be called a civil war even though it is.  Something like that

Somehow our elected leaders were subverting international law and humanity by setting up secret prisons around the world, secretly kidnapping people, secretly holding them indefinitely, secretly not charging them with anything, secretly torturing them.  Somehow that overt policy of torture became the fault of a few “bad apples” in the military.

Somehow back at home, support for the soldiers meant having a five-year-old kindergartener scribble a picture with crayons and send it overseas, or slapping stickers on cars, or lobbying Congress for an extra pad in a helmet.  It’s interesting that a soldier on his third or fourth tour should care about a drawing from a five-year-old; or a faded sticker on a car as his friends die around him; or an extra pad in a helmet, as if it will protect him when an IED throws his vehicle 50 feet into the air as his body comes apart and his skin melts to the seat.

Somehow the more soldiers that die, the more legitimate the illegal invasion becomes. 

Somehow American leadership, whose only credit is lying to its people and illegally invading a nation, has been allowed to steal the courage, virtue and honor of its soldiers on the ground. 

Somehow those afraid to fight an illegal invasion decades ago are allowed to send soldiers to die for an illegal invasion they started.

Somehow faking character, virtue and strength is tolerated.

Somehow profiting from tragedy and horror is tolerated.

Somehow the death of tens, if not hundreds, of thousands of people is tolerated.

Somehow subversion of the Bill of Rights and The Constitution is tolerated.

Somehow suspension of Habeas Corpus is supposed to keep this country safe.

Somehow torture is tolerated.

Somehow lying is tolerated. 

Somehow reason is being discarded for faith, dogma, and nonsense. 

Somehow American leadership managed to create a more dangerous world.

Somehow a narrative is more important than reality.

Somehow America has become a country that projects everything that it is not and condemns everything that it is.

Somehow the most reasonable, trusted and respected country in the world has become one of the most irrational, belligerent, feared, and distrusted countries in the world.

Somehow being politically informed, diligent, and skeptical has been replaced by apathy through active ignorance.

Somehow the same incompetent, narcissistic, virtueless, vacuous, malicious criminals are still in charge of this country.

Somehow this is tolerated.

Somehow nobody is accountable for this.

In a democracy, the policy of the leaders is the policy of the people.  So don’t be shocked when our grandkids bury much of this generation as traitors to the nation, to the world and to humanity.  Most likely, they will come to know that “somehow” was nurtured by fear, insecurity and indifference, leaving the country vulnerable to unchecked, unchallenged parasites. 

Luckily this country is still a democracy.  People still have a voice.  People still can take action.  It can start after Pat’s birthday.

- RAIN IN DRY LAND - I Just Watched This Inspiring Movie
Mood:  incredulous
Now Playing: A movie about Refugee's coming to America

I just seen the 3rd movie in a series that is about Human Rights at the

Portland Art Museum Whitsell Theater


What a great inspiring movie of a few families that move to America from Somali ..to Atlanta Ga. and to Springfield Mass. The film touch base with them every few months showing their progress at adapting to the very new cultures in the US.

It shows some of the challenges and progress as well as their struggles and stress trying to understand and learn ...in some case just simple things we take for granted, like walking down a flight of stairs, opening a childproof cap on a medicine jar, dealing with no money for heat, can't speak the language well enough to work, or order a meal at Taco Bell. Wow what a transistion......one family mother talked of her missing children that got lost from her when bullets and war was raging all around them......at the end of the movie she gets a phone call from them.

One cool moment taht showed the families adapting was - latter after about bing in America for about a year this one lady in the film is answering her "new cell" phone and then her other house phone rings ...she has one to each ear....man I-about .......blocked the movie screen with my smile.....that was a cool scene....

After watching this I feel inspired to help and I can see there needs to be allot of help in this catagory......these people were helpless and complete naive to what our culture is like ...there are many people like this in our communities ......I am not involved with this topic but am very interested in learning and helpingh my brothers and sister more.

I am inspired to help the people in this world who have their hand out stretched ...looking for change intheir life, nothing more than a better world for them and their families. It strikes me deep in my soul to see such a demand and need that basically goes unmet or addressed .....at least to me the issue should be on top of the table and I and my fellow Z3 readers need to reaching out and grab that hand. Its love my brotheres....its love. The need and desire to belong, be accepted and helped when confused or in need is the most human need that we all share. Survival and Humanity we all need it. Reach out and look .....for you will see there is a need ...that is unnoticed and needs you. It may be just a smile ...holding the door open.......explaining how to find something......or just being there as a companion and a good vibe to feel part of "us"............ which we all are.......

We ALL are TOGETHER.....the....... Human Race!

Mood:  suave
Now Playing: Hell lets Spy on the Peace Groups

 Ashcroft started this Bullshit, then he slips out the side door!

Now Big Brother is Everywhere

And they a Accusing "us"  citizens of being the enemy


 So I read the following from this website: CLICK HERE its written

By Matthew Rothschild who is the editor of The Progressive.

More information keeps coming out, thanks to the ACLU, about the Bush Administration's equation of protest with terrorism -- and the snooping it then engages in.

Homeland Security is monitoring peace groups and even peering at their e-mails. "This information is being provided only to alert commanders and staff to potential terrorist activity or apprise them of other force protection issues."

"Potential terrorist activity." Isn't that delightful? Word to the wise: If you're a peace activist, the government may be watching you and reading your e-mails. Something just to keep in mind.


I just find it amusing...errrrrrrrr I mean deplorable and not only uncalled for but should not be tolerated by a society that supposedly has respect for privacy and the pursuit of peace if one wants to pursue Peace

And ......without the damn HOMELAND SECURITY spying on them. I know that this country supports war and torture ...but damn now they get sneaky and violate the peace-nicks here in our own country!

 Thats pathetic!

Human Rights Commision Endorsed in Portland
Mood:  happy
Now Playing: Item I-408

This Portland City Council meeting can be viewed on the web at:


The council passed without a doubt the resolution I mention in

yesterdays post here-in-the Zebra3 Report

I got my yellow T-shirt at the front door to city hall and joined the other 80- 100 people inside who also had bright yellow shirts on......the shirt says this on the front.

 "United in Support of Immigration and Refugees"

The concept to have a Human Rights Commission here in Portland was overwhelming supported. I didn't hear one person say they didn't want one.

There were a half of dozen invited speakers and a couple dozen of the        "2 min speakers from the Public" ...which happened to be across the board diversity of speakers from the Portland Community.......I didn't see any Native Americans at this event, at least there was no speaker that mentioned they were of that culture ...that is not a issue or problem.....just a side note.

There was representation by to name just a few...... The Hispanic community, The Christian community, The Muslim,  African American, Korean, Gay & Lesbian, and even Cop Watch.

Nice mix of concerned and informed people. The council listened attentively. And to no surprise all voted to implant the Resolution. One comment was the rate at which HATE groups are multiplying since 9-11 which was at the rate of a 300% increase ..... man Hate and Racism on the major rise ...and here was the city of Portland trying to balance by resolution an attitude of Humanity and compassion. I was proud to be there. The community was speaking and they (City Hall) were listening.

A few speakers talked of the abuse of the Police and the use of force...... and man that is a hot topic with Joe_Anybody as well.

That cop/justice/civil rights concept came up at least 3 times ...maybe more.......The crowd clapped (suppose to wave hands in the air not clap in the 'chambers') when the issue of Police accountability was broached...... and pointed out we need resources and ways to address the attitude of the police with the community. Two policemen sat quietly along the back wall....in a very "non-threatening way" throughout the meeting.

Interesting enough in this police-realm ....when the guy from "Cop Watch" (Dan H) was done speaking he went to sit down and his chair or the only seat .....was right alongside the policeman's, so after his 2 min speech he has to sit right next to a cop ........no big deal ...just an observation! (If it was me, I would of felt awkward giving a speech on Police Accountability and then have to go sit next to them) I respect the Cop Watch organizer-  Dan Halderman ( I think is the correct spelling)

This was now my second time in those marble halls. The first is when I was really Proud of these Council guys running this show....when they voted to not accept the JTTF Terrorism Bullshit.

So two times Joe Anybody goes to city hall he witness's great decisions by the city leaders and I am proud to report that back to you, my fellow Z3 Readers          ......... .....HA ! (yes)

Eric Sten did mention that this is the tip of the issue.... it need to gain strength and gain support in the community. He was quick to point out that there needs to be follow up and continuation of this endeavor to make this truly happen and be viable. Now those are my own word from what I gathered he was saying. I think he was just trying to encourage and bring to the table that this concept and idea is just starting and this must continue to be worked on/with in order for it to survive. This was the First step and it will take Community involvement to finish this Resolution intentions.

So there I was up in the balcony watching the wheels of the city grind out some decent policy. I am proud of the insight and Humanity of this City that I live in!


To take more of an Active role in this Organization click this link:  http://www.interculturalorganizing.org/bridgetownvoices/bridgetownvoices.html

From their brochure it looks like they meet

 On Thursdays at 2808 NE MLK Blvd #13 <503-287-4117>

So my fair readers ....... How about you all join with me and th community that is rising up out of the hate ....and "become a voice in the night that is Speaking out for Human Rights" .....and those human rights apply to all Immigrants and Refugees just as much as to you and me. What they need is a voice and someone to stand with them ....... who can help the cry in the night? The Human Relations Commission is a start ...but they need individuals like you and me that will stand up and be counted ...now that is the vital part.

Or should I be asking,

      .......... "Can you even hear it?

               ..... I bet you can if you try!"

An article on how Pirate Radio has been out-flanked by Satellite
Mood:  down
Now Playing: Are Two Corporations - Really Pirate Radio Station?

10/5/06 - Satellite Radio Network is Partially Pirate [link to this story]

Unlike earlier this year, when XM and Sirius admitted to selling souped-up in-car transceivers that operated beyond acceptable FCC power levels, XM Satellite Radio now reports that its terrestrial-based network of repeater-transmitters - designed to bolster its space-based coverage pattern, especially in urban areas - has not only been operating at excessive power, but on unauthorized frequencies.

As of yet neither XM nor Sirius have been penalized in any way by the FCC for their previous indiscretions. But it's one thing to conspire with a third party transceiver-maker to juice the microwattage, and another to intentionally deploy a non-compliant chain of transmitters across the country.

Of the 800 repeater-sticks XM has deployed, more than one-quarter are overpowered, and another 19 have apparently been installed without any FCC permission at all. And they call us the pirates?

Oh! What a sick twisted man ~ He is an Outrageous Republican
Mood:  on fire
Now Playing: Short Video - Pro Torture Republican

So Thats Not Torture?................... Huh?

Now a clip from the Associated Press   Published 10 13 2006

HARTFORD, Conn. -- Republican Rep. Christopher Shays says the Abu Ghraib prison abuses weren't torture but instead involved a "sex ring" of National Guard troops.

"Now I've seen what happened in Abu Ghraib, and Abu Ghraib was not torture," Shays said at a debate Wednesday.

Watch Shay Defend Torture here on YouTube

 More on this story of the Perverted pro-torture Republican Representative right here

I would like to hear what he would say if this type of stuff was done to his Family......oh wait he already says he doesn't think it is bad ..... "it was outrageous but not torture...but defiantly outrageous!"

Well check my http://www.joe-anybody.com/id15.html  Torture Page it was not all sex games or Frat Boy Crap....and his comment "they took pictures of soldiers who were naked"

 These are War Crimes then, you dumb sap......hell if you are saying the naked prisoners were soldiers then they are not "insurgents" and then that would require the need to be treating them captured as a POW's...... But NOoooooo we claim they are "not soldiers" and that they are insurgents and that means they don't fall under the Geneva Conventions etc......so what the hell Mr Shay... what are these Humans that you want to do twisted stuff to ...these are either naked soldiers or an naked insurgents!?" It makes a big difference too! .......so what are these men huh?

OH! And read over some of this shit I have documented and tell me if that guy in the little blue hat, needs to come and explain who in his GOD name can say this is OK kind of treatment and it does not constitute torture? He speaks as if he might want to appear as a holy man ....HAHAHAHAHA! right!

This man is disgusting as the vile that preformed "the acts he defends ....with his little blue hat on " What a Bigot!

He is a phony man who is bull-shitting the public and congress, and you and me my fair reader. He condones violence and perversions done to other Humans, and that is twisted. No way around it!

I say you are either for the use of FREAK stuff or you are against it. You are either one way or the other.......For the freaky twisted perverted torture / violence or against it.........damn twisted if its hard for anyone to figure out.....dont hurt your self trying to figure what fricking side of the fence you stand on.......there is only two sides ! Damn!!!!!!!!

Outrageous my ass...hell the slime ball is lost in his own lack of words...... to define hell on earth











Oh Mr Pervert Shay thinks this is "outrageous"? huh......just outrageous?

Shit that is what I say when I go down the fuckin water slide! I would be sliding down and would say ..."wow that slide was outrageous"

This is Torture plain and simple

Or maybe this is all just "outrageous" to Mr Shay & his mom who he gleefully mentions her ... as if to drag mommy into the torture topic?

"ya sex ring"?    

........ain't nothing sexy about that blood stain on the door Mr Representative Shay...

Oh no just the national guard getting a "Little Outrageous huh?"


Hey!  I bet what happened in this room was just a little bit outrageous too!

 .....Ha! It is just a sack on the head game! Its nothing!!!!!!

So I suppose Mr Representative in your so Holy appearance and in your  "religious looking olé blue hat" will say that ........some "outrageous sex games happened here" in this interrogation room........? Ya!

So Twisted Shay's mom was in the audience and she approves of her son supporting this shit? I mean does she ? ...Huh!?

This is a stinking Karl Rove Sham of a speech , if I ever smelled one.

He has his little religious look and his soft voice...and he is out to Sell America Torture...Well Fuck Him ...I aint buying!

He has his mom in the audience and then Mr Shay opens his speech on TORTURE for Gods Sake ...with a little joke from his MOTHER about not being "boastful"? ...well shiver me timbers.. how quaint to discuss Mommy's phone call Mr. Torture Man! As he sells the public his USA Torture as being "just sexy games and it all being Outrageous"....what ... like a good water slide"? Oh did I say water boarding?......!

Ya, USA WATER-BOARDING SPORT I mean, it's so outrageous too!

..... I call people who accept this and advocate for it "TORTURERS AND ATTEMPTED MURDERERS AND WAR CRIMINALS AND THEY ARE SICK PERVERTED AND INSANELY OUT OF THEIR MINDS". If you condone this I spit on you!....... Shit thats just "outrageous"...... is right!  

And there is nothing worse than people covering this up or trying to hide the truth to not let the public know what is happening as in this article http://www.smh.com.au/news/world/lawyers-gagged-over-guantanamo-abuse-claims/2006/10/15/1160850796305.html  Where two lawyers are barred from telling anything about Guantanamo treatment of people they know. Another link to sme COVER-UP is here --> http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20061015/ap_on_re_la_am_ca/guantanamo_abuse_probe

It is a wonder they don't just throw the lawyers in jail forever? ............ Did America sleep through this torture series? Hell if it is wrong you better get off your ass while you can and say so. And it looks like I wont be sitting down on my ass for a long time ...cause there is a whole lot to be standing up yelling about.... in fact there seems to be no end to all those saying this is nothing more than outrageous sex games for Frat boys who are bored.


Well Mr. Righteous .....Mr soft spoken Bullshitter........

Take your sex game to hell with you, and your phony holy blue hat with you! I am busy trying to prevent Torture.......get the hell out of my way!

Freaks Of War and Forgotten Warriors
Mood:  spacey
Now Playing: Talk about Disfunction
Topic: WAR

Depleted  Uranium

All over in Iraq

Now here is a report on an

Iraq War Veteran

See the love he gets back home

After his exposure in Iraq

.....Oh wait there is no love ......


Four hours later, Herbert Reed will swallow another 15 mg of morphine to cut the pain clenching every part of his body. He will do it twice more before the day is done.

Since he left a bombed-out train depot in Iraq, his gums bleed. There is more blood in his urine, and still more in his stool. Bright light hurts his eyes. A tumor has been removed from his thyroid. Rashes erupt everywhere, itching so badly they seem to live inside his skin. Migraines cleave his skull. His joints ache, grating like door hinges in need of oil.

There is something massively wrong with Herbert Reed, though no one is sure what it is. He believes he knows the cause, but he cannot convince anyone caring for him that the military's new favorite weapon has made him terrifyingly sick.
In the sprawling bureaucracy of the Department of Veterans Affairs, he has many caretakers. An internist, a neurologist, a pain-management specialist, a psychologist, an orthopedic surgeon and a dermatologist. He cannot function without his stupefying arsenal of medications, but they exact a high price.
"I'm just a zombie walking around," he says.
Reed believes depleted uranium has contaminated him and his life. 

No one in the military talked to him about depleted uranium, he said. His knowledge, like Reed's, is self-taught from the Internet...................(to read more click link above)

I can just see it at  the current rate things are going along the concept of DisneyGITMO z00 type of family vacation spot ...picture this day - up around the corner ...when a little girl and her mom and dad ...visit the DisneyGITMO (not on US soil of course) and see some of our Proud GITMO heritage US allowed torture, in the Hollywood DisneyLand Flavor, that we are all now calling as American, as Apple Pie!

......"look mommy an orange  man with a bag on his head ...why is he tied to the wall?"

Mommy says "Oh its OK honey...he is a Terrorist ...the zoo can keep them in cages with bags on their heads and tied up like that because  they are sub human and have no rights they are EVIL because Bush our president says they are! .....Its OK if the US Military does this honey because this is not on US soil ....see that make this "not against US law". So relax and enjoy We are soooooo safe now. Don't worry about a thing ...Enjoy the sights of freedom and liberation the US has brought for the Muslim race. We are doing this to help them (sic) 

...And honey this is such a nice sunny day...... this is a perfectly time for you to see these guys tied up in the sun over there... I bet they have been there all day showing off. ...blah blah blah.."

"Oh hey look Daddy! ....Look! ...there is a whole family in the orange suits.....? Why are there teenagers chained up too? Are they evil like mommy said the president said they were...but they are just kids? Maybe he made a mistake? Could maybe he made a mistake Daddy?"

"Well honey the president must stay the course, to send the right message ...all those chained up terrorists are "bad" because Bush tells us they are. ......We will never know..... now listen dear it wasn't that long ago there would of been a trial for them 14,000 folks in them prisons we have stashed over seas like this one the Family is touring today...but the citizens of the US all sat back and allowed the Congress to let Bush take all that Human Right protections away from the we-the-people. Poof its gone ..But honey we don't care ... So what......these days heck its no big deal if the US gets to do all this zany bizarre torture stuff its legal now, sweetie its called freedom on the march. ........Blah blah blah" .

"Families visiting Disneyland on their holiday this week saw a life-size Guantanamo bay inmate standing inside the Rocky Mountain Railroad ride at Disneyland in Anaheim California.

The sculpture, consisting of an inflatable doll dressed in an orange jumpsuit with its hands and feet manacled remained in place for one and a half hours before Disneyland's security staff shut down the ride and removed it amid fears over public safety."
