The Rocket's Red Glare, Froggies Bursting in Air
A BUZZFLASH READER CONTRIBUTION
George's frogs keep getting bigger.
The torture, dismemberment, and death he enjoys grow more widespread each day. The firecrackers he has stockpiled for use in Iran are destined to put on a gloriously gruesome spectacle. Iranians are preparing for a nuclear bunker-buster enema, and its reverberation will be felt by the collective sphincter of humanity for generations to come. Americans in particular may never be able to sit down again. It's not a matter of whether, but of when little George will blow up his next frog. I suggest we take away his matches and break his fingers before it's too late.
Mr. Bush dismisses the idea of bombing Iran as "wild speculation." He claims we're using diplomacy first. This is the same old whopper he told about Iraq. But what else should we expect from the pathological liar in the White House? The man who lied about WMDs in Iraq. The man who lied about ties between Saddam and 9-11. The man who lied about federal wiretapping, about prison torture, about the Plame leaks, who denied knowledge of the vulnerable New Orleans levees, and who claimed he never met Jack Abramoff.
When the truth is known, Americans will finally have to face the fact that Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld and a few other select conspirators knew about the attacks of 9-11-01 before they happened. That the dumb look on George's face when Andrew Card whispered the news in his ear reflected his guilt for being complicit in the deaths of more than 3000 innocent people. 9-11 was Bush's Pearl Harbor. He no doubt believes that it was a small price to pay for a good excuse to attack the Mideast. No, it makes no sense to me either.
In George's defense, it is likely that he is just a simple-minded, born again, End-Time zealot. On a mission from God to expedite Armageddon. But his puppet masters are neo-con panderers to corporate global domination. The people who have set the bloody course of Bush's ship of state are members of The Project for the New American Century (PNAC). Cheney, Rumsfeld, Libby, Bolton, and scores of other multi-millionaire war profiteers made the decision to invade Afghanistan, Iraq, and Iran nearly ten years ago.
Members of the PNAC have a "blueprint for world domination" that only begins in the Mideast. They call for the United States to take military control of the entire Gulf region, and for our armed forces to "fight and decisively win MULTIPLE, SIMULTANEOUS major theater wars" as a core mission. They refer to our military as "the cavalry of the New American Frontier," and constantly beat the wardrums for the eventual and complete U.S. domination of all lands and seas, space and cyberspace.
The attacks of 9-11-01 were described in a PNAC document as "the opportunity of ages." They were only waiting for "some catastrophic and catalyzing event--like a new Pearl Harbor."
The decision for war in Iran has already been made. If I were starting a pool, I'd bet on 6-6-06 for the bombs to start falling. The mark 'o the beast ... wouldn't that put a smile on George's face? U.S. troops are already conducting covert military operations within Iran. No negotiations have been attempted. Neither U.N. support nor authorization from Congress has been obtained. The United States has now committed the first hostile act.
So the choice for Americans is simple:
Either 1. Invest in companies that manufacture body bags, and brace yourselves for suicide bombers and $10 per gallon gas.
Or 2. Encourage impeachment, march in the streets, and make use of what remains of your freedom.
I think I'll get in touch with my cousin Guido, who specializes in breaking fingers.
