Bush: Iraq fiscao "Just a Comma"
Well our "Inquistor in Chief" sees the current fiasco in Iraq as just a comma in the big tale of democracy and slaughter being written in the ME. The Carpetbagger has the relevant transcript from "Late Edition with Wolf Blitzer"
BLITZER: Let's move on and talk a little bit about Iraq. Because this is a huge, huge issue, as you know, for the American public, a lot of concern that perhaps they are on the verge of a civil war, if not already a civil war…. We see these horrible bodies showing up, tortured, mutilation. The Shia and the Sunni, the Iranians apparently having a negative role. Of course, al Qaeda in Iraq is still operating.
BUSH: Yes, you see — you see it on TV, and that's the power of an enemy that is willing to kill innocent people. But there's also an unbelievable will and resiliency by the Iraqi people…. Admittedly, it seems like a decade ago. I like to tell people when the final history is written on Iraq, it will look like just a comma because there is — my point is, there's a strong will for democracy. (emphasis added)
Let's see 2700 American soldiers dead, 20,000 injured, who knows how many Iraqis dead, likely over 100,000 dead, Iraqi infrastructure destroyed, and 1.2 billion Muslims comming to hate us.
But, I am afraid he is correct. Because the sh*t storm thats coming after he bombs and, likely, nukes (Hey, they're only tactical nukes the neocons will say) Iran will make Iraq look like a minor skirmish. Yes American democracy is coming to the ME strapped to tactical nukes. Yes that American democracy. The one that tortures, slaughters innocent civilians, has the largest percenatge of its population incarcerated, the one that wants to install one version of Christianity as the defacto religion of the country, the one that is, in essence, a one party system, that is ignoring the poor, the democracy in which racism is becoming more overt, and the corporations and elite become rich beyond their wildest dreams. Yes Middle East this is your lucky armegedon. All this will be yours. All you have to do is let the the US sluaghter between 500 and 2,000k more of your people, torture your people and destroy your infrastructure. And as a free bonus if you die before the elections, the US will then install the government of its choice who will then allow massive US military bases and drain your natural resources dry. Act today and we will throw in radiation poisoning, increased cancers, and birth defects at no extra charge. But act today, because what ever phone system you have wont be working for much longer.
