Decades from now, historians will likely calmly
discuss the war currently raging in Iraq, and identify oil
as one of the key factors that led to it. They
will point to the growing U.S. dependence on foreign oil,
the importance of oil in the rising competition
between the U.S. and China, and the huge untapped store
of oil lying unprotected under the Iraqi sand.
It will all probably seem fairly obvious. Just don't expect to
hear this sort of discussion now, however, when
it might actually make a difference Perhaps it simply

Insurgency in Iraq 'will not end'
Colin Powell said that the insurgency in Iraq "will
not end," as insurgents are determined
to derail the country's democratic transition.
Powell reiterated that Iraq's January 30 elections
will take place and that the US and Iraqi forces
are working to have security in place for the polls.
But, he told CBS television, "the insurgency will
"These insurgents are determined to have no representative
government. They want to go back
to a tyranny," Powell said. "And so the insurgency
will continue and the insurgency will have to be
defeated by coalition forces, but increasingly
the insurgency will be defeated and brought under control,
if not completely defeated, by Iraqi forces that
we are building up as rapidly as we can," he added.
First he says the insurgency will not end, then
he says the insurgency will be defeated.

Bush have a severe heart problem?
Bush apparently is wearing a medical device for "persons
at risk of cardiac arrest."
It is a LifeVest wearable defibrillator. He started
using it sometime after his January 2002 fainting spell,
which was attributed to choking. Based on photos
showing him wearing the device, one can conclude
the fainting was due to atrial fibrillation (AF),
which his father also had.
His father's AF was caused by Graves' hyperthyroidism,
which his mother also has. Bush likely has AF
and less likely Graves', based on his family history
and symptoms. The AF may have caused a stroke
or TIA (mini-stroke), of which physicians watching
the debates detected symptoms. Observers have
noted psychological symptoms consistent with this
and with Wernicke-Korsakoff disease.

Bush's theology of empire
These are Far Right American political leaders
and commentators who ascended to governing power and,
after the trauma of Sept. 11, 2001, have been emboldened
to carry out their agenda. In the run-up to the
war with Iraq, Kristol told me that Europe was
now unfit to lead because it was "corrupted by secularism,"
as was the developing world, which was "corrupted
by poverty." Only the United States could provide
the "moral framework" to govern a new world order,
according to Kristol, who recently and candidly wrote,
"Well, what is wrong with dominance, in the service of
sound principles and high ideals?" Whose ideals?
The American right wing's definition of "American
ideals," presumably. Bush Adds God."
What could be more dangerous than the religiously insane with absolute
"To describe F 9-11 as dishonest and demagogic would
almost be to promote those terms
to the level of respectability. To describe
it as an exercise in facile crowd-pleasing would
be too obvious. Fahrenheit 9/11 is a
sinister exercise in moral frivolity, crudely disguised
as an exercise in seriousness. It is also a
spectacle of abject political cowardice masking
itself as a demonstration of 'dissenting' bravery."

Death Toll Climbs to 77,000
Cargo planes touched down with promised aid Wednesday,
bearing everything from lentils
to water purifiers to help survivors facing the
threat of epidemic after this week's quake-tsunami
catastrophe. The first Indonesian military teams
reached the devastated west coast of Sumatra
island, finding thousands of bodies and hiking
southern Asia's death toll to more than 77,000.
"The damage is truly devastating," Maj. Gen. Endang
Suwarya said. "Seventy-five percent
of the west coast is destroyed and some places
it's 100 percent. These people are isolated
and we will try and get them help."
"We have little hope, except for individual miracles," Chairman
Jean-Marc Espalioux of
the Accor hotel group said of the search for
thousands of tourists and locals missing.
Bart, you wrote,
> "Iraq was relatively peaceful until Bush got his war
Please define "relatively peaceful".
Can you back that up with verified numbers?
It seems to me that the mass graves being discovered
pre-dated the US arrival there.
Mass graves, eh?
Do you think Saddam killed 100,000 people in
the 20 months before Bush invaded?
Also, do you make a distinction between "collatoral
damage" inadvertantly caused,
and executions and suicide bombings of Iraqis
by Iraqis. Do you have verified numbers for that?
I have verified numbers on nothing.
All my local Baghdad reporters were killed.

country, and whatever they did to their people was OK with you.

As the death toll surpassed 50,000 with no sign
of abating, the U.S. Agency for International Development
added $20 million to an earlier pledge of $15 million
to provide relief, and the Pentagon dispatched an aircraft
carrier and other military assets to the region.

that wealthy countries were being stingy with aid. "The

What Bush devotees see as accomplishments others
see as a plunge into a surreal world dominated by
theocratic loyalties and denial of fact over fantasy
fulfillment. The truth of the matter is that about the only
accomplishment in Bush's historical treasure box
thus far is election to a second term, even this is being
questioned in several states and may linger to
haunt an administration already taking on the aura of a
lame duck before the inauguration.
On the eve of a second Bush administration it
is reasonable to ask; Who is this man, what is happening to
the United States under his leadership and why?
A superficial examination of the Bush administration is simple;
the U.S. was attacked by elements of Al Queda headed
by a Saudi named Osama Ben Ladin.
The U.S. responded by bombing his bases and allies
Bush and his cabinet then targeted Saddam Hussain
claiming he had weapons of mass destruction and an
alliance with bin Laden. There were no WMD's and
it now appears the administration and its intelligence
branch knew these claims were false.
What was expected to be a lightning attack followed
by jubilation of a downtrodden populace has turned
into a fiasco. The war still rages as more and
more Iraqis and U.S. service personnel die. There has never been
an accurate count of Iraqi causalities and what
numbers do exist are closely guarded by the U.S. military command.
The U.S. dollar, while not in free fall, is tumbling
on world markets as the deficit rises to previously unheard of levels.
More U.S. jobs have been lost under Bush's administration
than any other presidency.
...and according to Bush, Kerry and the networks,
we just rewarded this out-of-control monster with
another four year term?
