Is Bush al-Qaeda's 'Useful Idiot'?
by Robert Parry at consortiumnews.com
If Western intelligence agencies are right – that
the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq and the
two-year-plus military occupation have been recruiting boons for Islamic terrorism
– why is it logical to commit American troops to an indefinite deployment
Won’t that just create more terrorists?
Put differently, has George W. Bush’s Iraq
policy done more to help than hurt al-Qaeda,
from Bush’s hasty decision to redirect U.S. military assets from Afghanistan
to Iraq while
Osama bin-Laden was still at large, to the loose talks about an American “crusade,”
to supplanting Iraq’s secular government with one favoring Islamic fundamentalism?
In the 1980s, when I was covering the wars in
Central America, neoconservative theorists
liked to call U.S. peace activists “useful idiots” because their
opposition to the hard-line
Reagan administration was seen as unwittingly aiding and abetting communists
leftist enemies. In that vein, is Bush now al-Qaeda’s “useful idiot”?
"Bush and his right wing allies are responding
to Cindy Sheehan and the military families’
vigil in Central Texas in the same way that they always respond to bad news –by
personal attacks and smears against her. This White House never wants an open
discussion, and it certainly never wants to be told that it is wrong. It always
tries to change
the message by attacking the messenger... To smear her rather than hear her
-- Joe Wilson, who knows all about Bush's big media
smear machine Link
Abu Ghraib scapegoat says Bush
”It was a memorandum signed by Rumsfeld,
authorizing a short list, maybe 6 or 8 techniques:
use of dogs; stress positions; loud music; deprivation of food; keeping the
lights on, etc.,”
Karpinski said. “And then a handwritten message over to the side that
appeared to be
Rumsfeld’s signature. And it said, ‘Make sure this happens’ with
two exclamation points.
And that was the only thing they had. Everything else had been confiscated.”
Karpinski tried to get information, but “nobody
knew anything, nobody – at least, that’s what
they were claiming. The Company Commander, Captain Reese, was tearful in my
repeatedly told me he knew nothing about it, knew nothing about it,” Karpinski
said. But in a
later plea bargain he entered into after the Taguba Report came out, “Captain
Reese said that
not only did he know about it, but he was told not to report it to his chain
of command, and he
was told that by Colonel Pappas. And he claimed that he saw General Sanchez
out there on
several occasions witnessing the torture of some of the security detainees.”
But they demoted Karpinkski because she's female.
That'll teach those bitches to get in a man's army.
GOP: 'Price of gas killing us'
As consumers feel pain at the pump, record high gas prices are
registering as a political problem with congressional Republicans.
At a town hall meeting this week, Rep. Jack Kingston
(R-Ga.) wanted to talk
about Social Security and Medicare, but the session quickly turned to gas prices.
When Rep. Shelley Capito (R-WV.) toured a VA clinic,
the first question put to her was:
"What are you going to do about the high price of gasoline?"
"People are mad as hell," Sen. Lindsey
Graham (R-Known Liar) said.
Republican candidates facing tough races in 2006
should be worried, said Tony Fabrizio,
a Republican political consultant.
"If I were a guy in a marginal race, I would
be all over the oil companies," he said.

at the group's
national convention in Honolulu.
That underlined phrase?
It's impossible to define - so why are they using that in their threat?
Who's to say the failure of regular Americans to praise Bush at every opportunity
would not somehow be encouraging terrorists in
the eyes of overzealous Republicans?
The delegates voted to use whatever means necessary
to "ensure the united backing of the
American people to support our troops and the global war on terrorism."
No, you can't have that - are you crazy?
Besides that - you're cheating.

Fred Phelps again
Anti-gay preacher Fred Phelps has caused an international royal gay flap
over accusations that
Sweden's King Carl Gustaf is gay. Phelps, who runs the God Hates Fags website,
allegations on his newest site - God Hates Sweden.
The preacher who built his reputation by picketing
the funeral of gay college student Matthew Shepard
is angry over a Swedish court ruling that a fundamentalist minister broke
that country's hate speech law
during a fiery speech against homosexuality.
Phelps' site calls Sweden "a land of sodomy,
bestiality, and incest", and goes on to say:
"The King looks like an anal-copulator, & his grinning kids look slutty & gay."
Why do all Bush voters sound exactly the same?
Fred Phelps, Pat Robertson, the vulgar Pigboy, Ann Coulter, Michael Savage
- the list is endless.
If you hate blacks and gays, people will send you lots of money to manufacture
lies about them.
Playing to the base of all bases, they steal money from the ignorant,

Bush is acting positively French in his love of le loafing, with

hand, take fewer

Re Crowe and 15m.
I send a comment - hopefully you'll share it so others will understand.
This is Jimmy the Lawyer - we're
he often speaks to me more frankly than some people...
In Tort cases there are intentional and unintentional Torts.
Intentional torts are such things as battery, assault,
etc., where the defendant
intends to harm the person he injures. Intentional torts
create a different type
of damages which can be recovered by the plaintiff. They're called punitive damages.
You mean Punitive?
Etymology: French punitif,
from Medieval Latin punitivus,
from Latin punitus,
past participle of punire :
inflicting, involving, or aiming at punishment
Dude, I'm Catholic.
We know all about punitive and Latin is just one of my languages.
The basis of punitive damages is how much
it will take the defendant to learn his lesson and act like
a responsible citizen. The jury is allowed to look into how much money Crowe
makes, and how much
he has stored away in accounts and property, and then determine how much
of that they will have to
take away in order to get Crowe to sit up and take notice. The jury has determined
here that it will
take $15m to get Crowe's attention.
So, we agree that their behavior was outrageous?
Dude, I can't fault you for your youth and inexperience.
I know Crowe has been painted with the violence brush
but does he have any convictions?
A man of
his means, I could see a $25K first offense, a $200K second offense
and maybe a million dollar third offense, but $15M for the FIRST offense?
Jimmy, you know who Andy Griffith is - you've seen that old show?
Do you know where it came from?
It was one of TV's first spin offs - from The Danny Thomas Show - Make
Room for Daddy
Danny Thomas was a big shot TV star who blew thru Mayberry at 70 MPH. Andy
and said, "That'll be a $10 fine," and
Thomas peeled off a twenty and said, "Keep
Andy decided he needed to be taught a lesson so he
(illegally) raised the fine to $200 and Thomas
refused to pay, choosing to "do the time," instead where he learned
his lesson from Opie and thus
was born The Andy Griffith Show.
I went thru all that just to let you know it's not
a new concept, making the rich pay more.
I just think paying
$15M in blackmail money for a first offense is a little steep.
They have merely based this on his confidential financial information which
you know nothing of,
but they do. It's kind of like rapping a donkey over the head with 2x4.
Knowing Crowe's background for
repetitive violence, do you doubt that it would take 15m of his
to get him to think twice about doing it again. If they just demanded the
medical bill being paid, wouldn't
Crowe just decide, "Hell, it's worth 1500 bucks to lay this guy out."
Jimmy, I agree with you in principle but not $15M worth.
