Round and Round the Bushie-Merry-Go-Round

Mirror, mirror on the wall...

Last night, unashamedly, in front of his TV audience, Mr. Bush relieved himself of another barely disguised "Mission Accomplished" speech.

In a no holds barred refutation of Mr. Bush's delusions, Michael Ware provided, point by point, a more realistic appraisal of the situation in the field:

"The president said that:

If America were to be driven out of Iraq,
extremists of all strains would be emboldened.
They are [emboldened] now.

Al Qaeda could gain new recruits and new sanctuaries.
They have that now.

Iran would benefit from the chaos and be encouraged in its efforts to gain nuclear weapons and dominate the region.
It is now.

Iraq would face a humanitarian crisis.
It does now.

That we would leave our children a far more dangerous world.

That's happening now."


"Take that, you fools"

With his usual unbridled hubris, Mr. Bush put the world on notice that imperial America is in Iraq to stay!

"This vision for a reduced American presence also has the support of Iraqi leaders from all communities. At the same time, they understand that their success will require U.S. political, economic and security engagement that extends beyond my presidency."


Saigon yesterdsay, Baghdad while the oil lasts, upheaval tomorrow...

The United States have officially declared military bases in 146 countries strategically located to counter a resurgence of Russian influence and an assured economic and probable military confrontation with China.

While Mr. Bush and the neocons are moving their imperious agenda inspite of any and all warnings of impending disaster, I agree with Morford on the stark reality of our predicament.

"Because the truth is, we are well past the point of salvaging anything noble or honest from Bush's massive, historic debacle. We have only this brutal reality: Iraq is, and forever will be, one of the most extraordinary wastes in all of American history."

The blogosphere and the polls hint at an awakening, a revulsion against Bushism stirring the populace.

And the US Congress wallows in its self-inflicted self-serving political inertia, bound and gagged by its paymasters in the corporate and special interests kingdoms.

Round and round the Bushy-Go-Round.
