|>From the Nation website. I like it! | |Shortly after the US conquered Baghdad, the US Defense Intelligence |Agency distributed a now famous deck of cards bearing the images of |"Iraq's Most Wanted." This hit list of top Iraqi officials became a |pop-cultural phenomenon, as well as a critical crutch for the US press, |which virtually never reports on newly captured Bathists these days |without noting their appropriate card rank among the US deck of |fifty-five. | |Now the Ruckus Society, a nonviolent anarchist group based in Oakland, |has matched and raised the Defense Department with its own "War |Profiteer" playing cards featuring fifty-three individuals and |institutions in the oil, military, government, and media sectors who |supported and are now profiting from the US war on Iraq. Players include |three of hearts Condoleeza Rice, king of diamonds George P. Schultz, ten |of clubs Vince D. Coffman, CEO of Lockheed Martin, and "wildcard" |President George W. Bush. |http://www.warprofiteers.com/cards/alphabet.html | |The decks are stylish, funny and replete with good, accurate information |on exactly the sort of people who are currently most responsible for the |corruption of our country. And, unlike the deck produced by the US |military, the Ruckus Society's pack is widely available.So order a pack |today. | |Co-written by Jonah Engle. |http://www.thenation.com/actnow/index.mhtml?bid=4 _______________________________________________ Sent via the discussion list of the Campaign Against Sanctions on Iraq.
