"Never was so much owed by so many to so few." This famous line was from a speech by Winston Churchill on August 20th, 1940. This was at the height of the German attack on Great Britain and Churchill was referring to the Royal Air Force as the few. And they were few, indeed, compared to what the Germans had to offer.
Unfortunately, if one were now to consider such a statement it would have to be: never have so few destroyed so many lives for such ignoble purposes. The few here being Cheney, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, Perle, Rice, Hadley, Libby, Rove, and other neocons who highjacked American foreign policy and lied us into this horrible, unnecessary war of greed and pillage. Absolutely no one benefits from this "war" except for oil companies and the military-industrial complex (of which Cheney, the Bush family, and others are members). These people are war criminals, plain and simple. And they must be somehow held accountable for their crimes.
When Helen Thomas was finally allowed to ask a question she asked "why did you go to war in Iraq?" Bush's reply was so totally dishonest and pathetic he has to have been exposed for the creepy know-nothing that he is. After listening to his reply it is clear that he is either insane or so far out of the loop as to be irrelevant. We are supposed to put up with this for another three years?
This has to be one of the saddest, most depressing and horrible things I have ever read:
"Mr. Azawi's body was found the next morning at a sewage treatment plant. A slight man who raised nightingales, he had been hogtied, drilled with power tools, and shot."
Mr. Azawi's "crime" seems to have been that he was a Sunni. It is certainly unlikely that it was because he raised nightingales.I do not believe such a thing would have happened prior to Bush/Cheney's "war."
Do you think that Bush/Cheney and the other neocons sleep well and have pleasant dreams (of murder, torture, plunder, rape and misery?). Or do they just count their money and very expensive barrels of oil?
