Is There Another Option, George? YES!

by pessimist

Bush Says Failure in Iraq 'Not an Option' - but he says nothing about failure in Afghanistan:

Blast Hits Near U.S. Embassy in Kabul

A massive explosion believed to have been caused by a rocket shook the Afghan capital late Wednesday near the U.S. Embassy compound....the southwest side of the U.S. Embassy's compound was among the buildings struck in the rocket attack. The explosion comes amid increasingly brazen attacks targeting U.S.-led coalition military forces in Afghanistan, particularly across the country's south, where remnants of the toppled Taliban government have carried out increasing numbers of bombings and attacks.

Nor does Hizz Hindni$$ mention the possibility of failure over Iran - and Angus-Reid reports that 54 per cent of respondents to a recent poll say they do not trust George W. Bush to make the right decision about whether the country should go to war with Iran or not.

This poll result is not a good thing for Dubai-yah, as Robert Sheer points out:

There is one clear standard by which President Bush has asked, over and over, to be judged: his ability to keep us safe from rogue nations or terrorists armed with weapons of mass destruction.
Unfortunately, by any rational definition of that standard,
his five-year administration has been an abysmal failure.

You are even losing your New York Times lapdog Thomas Friedman:

“I look at the Bush national security officials much the way I look at drunken drivers. I just want to take away their foreign policy driver's licenses for the next three years. Sorry, boys and girls, you have to stay home now -- or take a taxi. ... You will not be driving alone. Not with my car.”

Internationally, this is clearly shown by the failing talks being held in Moscow to discuss Iran. Bu$hCo is claiming that "Nearly every country is considering some sort of sanctions" while Russia and China, both of whom have strong trade ties to Iran, have shown extreme reluctance to threaten the use of force or even sanctions against the regime.

Hey, what's a few verisimilitudes among friends! It goes with the theme! Just a few days after denying reports of US nuclear attack plans against Iran, George refused to rule out nukes. Besides, without your killer-attack lap poodle at your heel, how can you go to war?

"Nobody is talking about a military invasion of Iran or military action against Iran. We are taking diplomatic action through the United Nations Security Council," Blair said.

"But... but... Karl SAID I could nuke somebody!!!"

Like North Korea? Seems to me that China and Russia weren't to pleased about that prospect either! And Karl's gone! Neither he nor Scott McClellan can officially 'express' your statements anymore. So stop listening to them!

What other option is left? Syria? No one likes your choice of Syrian puppets - I mean, friends. And what of your Texas neighbors? I think you hang around with the wrong people there also, George. Like that Rep. Sam Johnson (R-TX). He doesn't seem to understand what he's talking about when he's bragging to you:

"Syria is the problem. Syria is where those weapons of mass destruction are, in my view. You know, I can fly an F-15, put two nukes on 'em and I'll make one pass. We won't have to worry about Syria anymore."

Take a pass on that offer! It just REEKS of no success - almost as much as Arbusto still emits odors.

What about Libya? I wouldn't nuke Tripoli, George. You'd piss off a lot of Lionel Ritchie fans! Besides, the Bank of Malta spent years opening up Libya to European investment and they won't take it kindly if you close them up again.

You, of all people, should know how much attention is to be paid when currency converses.

Quit while you are ahead, George. In fact, just quit. Now. You are only going to fail again, and the rest of us aren't interested in eating the costs.
