Bush's Iraq: I'm tired of outlandish lies
Yesterday afternoon, BabyGirl came down w/some kind of bug... so most of the evening was spent on the couch w/a hot sweaty sleeping child laying on me... which meant I watched a whole lotta news. Doing so lead to me feeling like this: To BushCo and his water-carrying minions, stop telling us citizens that it is raining when you are clearly just pissing against the wind. Allow me to explain: A warrant has been issued for the arrest of a major Sunni leader- Harith al-Dhari- for inciting terrorism and violence among the Iraqi people. If that is the criteria for an arrest warrant in Iraq, then when exactly will Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, et al have warrants issued for their criminal asses? Well, arresting a major Sunni leader just might be the tip of the horrific iceberg, given that an idea is being kicked around the WH that the US will openly chose sides between the Shiites and the Sunnis. Yep. You read that right. Since we couldn't accomplish what Saddam did-- i.e. hold Iraq together as a multi-ethnic/ religious secular based nation-- we will just pick one side and say "Ah, screw it" and walk away while the nation implodes. Shocking, isn't it that BushCo doesn't understood that the strength of democracy is not "majority rule" and the purple finger thing, but rather it's strength lies in protecting minority rights? And experts assess: "Civil war in Iraq is already underway, and the real worry ahead is that the conflict will destroy the flimsy Iraqi state and draw in surrounding countries." Yet, what is Bush slowing shoving down our throats as he screams from the rooftops that there is no civil war? His "last big push"... i.e.: Sending in 1000s upon 1000s of more US troops into Iraq. Now we all know that this will end horribly, but given that Henry Kissinger is advising Bush to do this "last big push" and Kissinger was also the one who was behind the "last big push" in Vietnam into Cambodia (which helped launch the insane dictator Pol Pot) ya have to wonder when do these folks stop getting a free pass for ignoring history & recreating it's bloodiest mistakes?
