The Arrogance Continues

The picture of the three who got us into the quagmire of Iraq! War criminals if ever there were any! Bush, Cheney, and Rumsfeld all should be held accountable for crimes against humanity! That is my opinion and has been since the beginning of the Iraq war 5 years ago. Time has proven me correct! Time has proven all those who opposed the war correct!

This weekend, Mickey Edwards, a Congressman from 1977 to 1993, wrote, "For at least six years, as I've become increasingly frustrated by the Bush administration's repeated betrayal of constitutional — and conservative — principles, I have defended Vice President Cheney, a man I've known for decades and with whom I served and made common cause in Congress. No longer." Edwards cites Cheney's recent interview with ABC News correspondent Martha Raddatz. When Raddatz reminded Cheney of America's overwhelming dislike for the war, Cheney's response was, "So?" Oh the arrogance! Isn't government "For the People, by the People"? Guess not in the Bush Administration.

Over the weekend I watched a television show documenting the rationale for war with Iraq. Rumsfeld insisted without a shadow of a doubt that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction. It wasn't that Iraq may have weapons of mass destruction, but they did, and the US knew where they were. Five years later, how wrong Rumsfeld was.

And Bush! He insists to this day that we are making progress in Iraq. Last week, when the Iraq government began its new offensive against rebel forces, we were again told it is a defining point for Iraq. How many defining points have there been?

Lies, lies, lies! All lies and distortions! And many bought it! Many didn't but today we can see where it has gotten the US. It has totally ruined us. Not only 4,000 dead, but look at our economy. Any relationship to Iraq? I would say so. This war, started by Bush, Cheney, and Rumsfeld has led the US down a spiralling hole. I only hope Bush's successor can get us out of it.

And yet this country voted these jackals in, not once, BUT TWICE !!!

Were people like you and I the only ones who saw the truth, while the majority was mislead? Or are Americans so fucking stupid, they could allow this to occur unabated.

Where are the calls for impeachment? Damn, more was made of Clinton's blow-job then all of these lies and deaths - why is that?

The majority followed thier "faith" and because the GWB is a Xian, they voted for him, twice.
I think that in the Northeast, that we are not as aware of just how strong a pull the Christian faith is for people in lots of the other 50 states.
There is, and has been, a call for impeachment. My hand hurts from signing so many "impeach the bastards " petitions over the years.

There are lots of people who are giving their all to get those egotistic, money hungry, assholesout of office.

The PROBLEM??? Well, the problem with getting them out of office is that SO MANY people have been getting huge returns on the Iraq War Defense contractors STOCKS, as well as OIL stocks.

Everything comes down to money, and then the money is defended by "faith." Just ask the Catholic Church, they can tell you how to mindboggle the common person, keep the necessary politicos in place, and keep the money train running,for centuries.

None of this new, (ie--Crusades, Inquisition)it just has a different name, Christian, instead of Catholic.......
