    Two ads where printed in the Washinton Post on the October 12. With the below ad.

    Source: http://www.tellhim.no/?module=displa...02&format=html



    "More than 80% of all Norwegians opposed the US-led war in Iraq. A majority also favours the withdrawal of Norwegian forces from Iraq. Still, Norway is perceived as uncritical supporter of the US "war on terror". Norway is on the "willing list" of countries that support this policy, and President George W. Bush also mentioned Norway specifically in his State of the Union address this year.

    Tellhim.no has therefore collected money for two ads in the Washington Post, in which we explain the general Norwegian opinion about the war in Iraq, and George W. Bush's foreign policy.

    We do not think the US "war on terror" decreases worldwide terror - on the contrary. We oppose the war on Iraq, and we are also against the harassment and torture that we have seen.

    15% I like this. Thank you so much for posting this link and the information it provides. I plan on sending it around to friends.

    I detest this war, too.

    Mostly right now I am trying to get past what I have seen lately of the mass graves that they are finding in Iraq. I saw one report where in a mass grave where around 10,000 people were buried a majority had major parts of the skull missing. But it was not from beheading, which would be a horrible but thankfully swift way to meet your physical death. It was from the pouring of acid on the head as a means of torture while one is still alive.

    How can we as humans peacefully prevent things like this from happening?

    Maybe what the Norwegians are doing is a start, a way. Twould be nice if leaders of countries would listen to things like this. But I am not holding my breath on it.

    But a tip of the hat to the Norwegians who care in doing this.

    The irony is that in the Us itself there are thousands of people doing the same type of things.

    Half a page Ad in Washington post costs 35000 Dollars (wtf.....)(i recently heard Washington post is actually some how in the Bush Family......)

    Personally i think it is a waste of money to put so much cash in a one day Ad in Washington Post - 35000 Dollars can buy you alot of stuff, - corruption, stickers, food whatever

    Didn't Bush say he doesn't read the papers?

    itís an election with no Democrats, in one of the whitest states in the union, where rich candidates pay $35 for your votes. Or, as Republicans call it, their vision for the future.

    I am also heartened to read that the Norwegians agree and want Iraqi to have a democraticaly controlled government, as it appears a majority of the Iraqis do themselves. I see that both Bush and Kerry want this same thing.

    It would seem the bitter disagreement is on how they will obtain this.

    "We don't think this will have an effect on the election. That's not our goal," he said when asked if the group hoped that voters would oust Bush next month and elect Democratic challenger John Kerry.
