Morialekafa will not be blogging again until Sunday the 17th. It is just as well because it all seems increasingly pointless. Let us recapitulate:
It is perfectly clear by now that Bush/Cheney and the neocons blatantly lied to start a "war" with Iraq.
It is equally clear that Saddam Hussein was not a threat to the U.S., and, in fact, not even to his neighbors.
There were no weapons of mass destruction, nor was there any evidence that Saddam was about to produce any.
There was no connection whatsoever between Saddam and al Quaida.
Saddam had not blocked inspectors from Iraq and, in fact, they had free reign to go anywhere and look anywhere.
The claim that Osama bin Laden and his followers are going to try to establish a Muslim empire from Spain to Indonesia is an idea so far fetched its believers should be institutionalized.
The idea that we are fighting them there in order to keep them from here is also totally without foundation.
Just yesterday Bush claimed "this war was forced on us." How can he say this with a straight face? We all know this was a "war" of choice. We certainly did not have to go to war with Iraq because of 9/11, which they had nothing to do with, and which Bush himself has now admitted.
If this is true, as I fervently believe it is, why is it that Bush/Cheney and company continue to claim otherwise. And what is worse, why are they allowed to get away with it day after day now that we know it is all simply bullshit?
And why is it that fully a third of U.S. citizens still support Bush/Cheney? I can only assume they are brain dead. Certainly they do not read or pay attention to what is going on in front of their eyes and ears. Someone has suggested that all editors of major papers should be fired because of this. If it is true that large numbers of citizens still believe there was a connection between Saddam and 9/11, and between Saddam and al Quaida, our newspeople should be held accountable.
Given the above does it not seem pointless to continue to try to expose the Bush/Cheney white-collar gangsters for what they are? We all know what happened. We all know they are guilty as hell. Republicans continue to defend them. One can only conclude there are no honorable Republicans in the House or Senate. This simply has to change. Enough is enough. Vote Democratic.
A high-level Israeli officers has now admitted they used illegal phosphorous bombs as well as cluster bombs by the hundreds. He says what they did was insane. It certainly was a war crime. Indeed it was both. Bush/Cheney will no doubt defend them. War criminals stick together.
