American Police State

Posted on February 8, 2007. Filed under: uncategorized |

A security crackdown is under way in Baghdad, The Associated Press reports, via Yahoo News.

Excerpts:

Gunfire rang out across the capital, and the wail of police and ambulance sirens seemed incessant. The buzz of low-flying U.S. helicopters and growl of fighter jets was nonstop above a new crop of government posters and billboards speaking of Baghdad’s struggle.

“Our streets are deserted and our blood is fair game,” declared one that showed an empty street strewn with debris from a bombing.

Another billboard showed a young man weeping because he had not reported suspicious activity to authorities. “I should have done the right thing,” he says.

Still another billboard message implored: “Be a hero and report suspicious behavior.”
