Bush Delivers Iraq on a Silver Platter Into the Epicenter of the Axis of Evil
A BUZZFLASH NEWS ANALYSIS
Well, here's a little stream of thought for today...
We were watching that Hollywood epic "Lawrence of Arabia" last night and thinking how the Arab states are really an artifically imposed post-colonial era construct of the Western powers after the defeat of the Ottoman Empire in WW I. That, of course, includes Iraq.
In reality, Iraq is three ethnic/sectarian nations (at least): Shiite, Sunni and Kurdish. Right now, the Busheviks have delivered Iraq into the hands of the Shiites, and in particular, the faction aligned with Iran's hardline, whacko fundamentalists.
Now, isn't that emblematic of "Baby Doc" Bush's lifelong history of incompetence? He starts a war based on lies, gets rid of a secular (albeit ruthless) leader, has thousands of Americans and Iraqis wounded or injured, spends America into bankruptcy fighting an unnecessary conflict, and -- here's the coup de grace -- he ends up handing the nation that he invaded in the name of breaking the back of the axis of evil into the clutches of the axis of evil, the medieval Shiite rulers of Iran!
Now, we got ourselves a Colonel Klink in the White House to be sure! You couldn't screw this up more if you were a plumber with Parkinson's disease. (No offense to anyone who has the ailment.)
On top of that, the real reason that the Busheviks wouldn't let Iraq become a federation after the invasion, with the type of solution Bill Clinton achieved in the former Yugoslavia, is that the Turks won't allow an independent Kurdistan. They fear that such an entity would eventually fight to annex the eastern Kurdish portion of Turkey.
All we can say is that the Keystone Cops look like the Einstein Corps compared to the incompetent Busheviks, who threaten our national security and world peace everyday.
Remember again, John Murtha, urging the withdrawal of our troops from Iraq, is speaking out on behalf of the military brass who can't publicly say that the war in Iraq is ill-conceived, unwinnable and deteriorating our military capability.
Those Democrats that continue to support Bush on the Iraq War put themselves at odds with the military, the rank and file of the CIA, and the national security interests of the United States of America.
How long can you timidly make excuses for the master at creating disaster?
Apparently, for the Democratic Leadership Council and the Democratic senators who support that sad, misguided entity, the answer is a long, long time.
