    At Least 10 Activists Killed in Israeli Attack on Gaza-Bound Aid Ship
    At least ten peace activists have been killed in an Israeli attack on a humanitarian aid ship making its away to the Gaza Strip in international waters. The Mavi Marmara was part of a flotilla organized by the Free Gaza Movement carrying nearly 700 international activists and over 10,000 tons of aid. On Monday, Israeli forces stormed the ship nearly forty miles off the Gaza coast. In the Occupied Territories, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas condemned the attack as a "massacre."

    BPs lobbyists on the hill
    have gotten away through their uhm skills on what where supposed to be progressive politicians,
    to get away with the devilment in 2009,
    devilment that the republicans thought was just the normal way of doing business for the past 30 years.


    So why not simply end lobbying before more horros jump out of Pandora's box?

    why else would a company providing a so called emergency relief subsatance need to "buy favor" during an emrrgency?
