  Not Only Is Bush Not A Warmonger, He Would Never Have Let 9/11 Happen

But look at what Gore Vidal has to say about that. (reprinted from the Observer) How dare he bring everybody down like this? How will anyone trust our president if they start thinking things through for even a moment?

Obviously you shouldn't read it or even think about it. In fact, I didn't even link to it; your morbid curiosity led you to it. Traitor! Thought-criminal! Terrorist!

I can't believe you're even reading this.

Or these absolutely unAmerican excerpts from the essay:

The first by former West Point professor Stan Goff on just what to consider about Bush's reactions on 9/11:

...Goff, incidentally, like the other astonished military experts, cannot fathom why the government's automatic `standard order of procedure in the event of a hijacking' was not followed. Once a plane has deviated from its flight-plan, fighter planes are sent up to find out why. That is law and does not require presidential approval, which only needs to be given if there is a decision to shoot down a plane. Goff spells it out: `The planes were hijacked between 7:45 and 8:10am. Who is notified? This is an event already that is unprecedented. But the President is not notified and going to a Florida elementary school to hear children read.

The second on (a)that plans to attack Afghanistan went at least as far back as Clinton and (b) just why the hell we'd want it, theorized by Zbigniew Brzezinski:

Ever since the continents started interacting politically, some 500 years ago, Eurasia has been the centre of world power.' Eurasia is all the territory east of Germany. This means Russia, the Middle East, China and parts of India. Brzezinski acknowledges that Russia and China, bordering oil-rich central Asia, are the two main powers threatening US hegemony in that area.

He takes it for granted that the US must exert control over the former Soviet republics of Central Asia, known to those who love them as `the Stans': Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Tajikstan and Kyrgyzstan all `of importance from the standpoint of security and historical ambitions to at least three of their most immediate and most powerful neighbours -- Russia, Turkey and Iran, with China signaling'. Brzezinski notes how the world's energy consumption keeps increasing; hence, who controls Caspian oil/gas will control the world economy. Brzezinski then, reflexively, goes into the standard American rationalization for empire. We want nothing, ever, for ourselves, only to keep bad people from getting good things with which to hurt good people. `It follows that America's primary interest is to help ensure that no single [other] power comes to control the geopolitical space and that the global community has unhindered financial and economic access to it.'

Brzezinski is quite aware that American leaders are wonderfully ignorant of history and geography so he really lays it on, stopping just short of invoking politically incorrect `manifest destiny'. He reminds the Council just how big Eurasia is. Seventy-five percent of the world's population is Eurasian. If I have done the sums right, that means that we've only got control, to date, of a mere 25 percent of the world's folks. More! `Eurasia accounts for 60-per cent of the world's GNP and three-fourths of the world's known energy resources.'.


I'm sure it doesn't take a RISK champion to see how Iraq can be useful in extending all this.

*************************************************************

In other news:
Tony Blair's MPs are asking once again, where are those darn WMDs?

You know, if Bush had tricked and used Blair, so as to get the UK's aid but also to ultimately split the Labor party and help the Tories back into office(and not incidentally get rid of a Clintonian-style moderate leader), it would look exactly the same as this. But as we all know, Bush hasn't the intelligence to oversee such clever manuevers.

*************************************************************

Quoted at the Doonesbury website(emphasis mine):
"It's not like a treasure hunt, where you just run around looking everywhere. ... The inspectors didn't find anything, and I doubt that we will."
-- Donald Rumsfeld, on the search for WMD


Then...why exactly did we go? Or are people supposed to just get bored of asking?

*************************************************************
Look, folks, an extremely sensitive and intelligent cartoon by one Randy Bish!

I do wonder, though: in such a backward, uneducated and unsophisticated country, where'd he find the hard drive? Oh well. Hilarious, isn't it? Let's all laugh at the silly Iraqi. They may as well get the chance to get used to it.
