"The most dangerous George Bush is one who feels weak, powerless and under attack.
  I doubt there are many limits, if there are any, on what he would be willing to do in order to
  restore a feeling of power and to rid himself of the sensations of his own weakness and defeat."
    -- Glenn Greenwald,   "Bush collapse poses risks"

Waist Deep in the Big Muddy
 by Greg Palast

Bush has an urge to surge. Like every junkie, he asks for just one more fix:
let him inject just 21,000 more troops and that will win the war.
Been there. Done that.

Bush is asking us to save Iraq from the Iraqis.

There's always a problem with giving a junkie another fix. It can only make things worse.
Our maximum leader says that unless he gets to mainline another 21,000 troops,
"Iran would be emboldened in its pursuit of nuclear weapons," and terrorists
"would have a safe haven from which to plan and launch attacks on the American people."

Excuse me, but didn't we hear that same promise in 2003? Nearly four years ago, on the eve
of invasion, this same George Bush promised, "The terrorist threat to America and the world
will be diminished the moment that Saddam Hussein is disarmed."

Maybe the title should be "Waste Deep," since Bush
has stolen/wasted more money than any other president.

"Jack, is it important?  I'm really busy..."
    -- Chloe on 24, telling Jack, with whom she's saved the world 13 times,
        that's she's "busy" with "important stuff" and doesn't have time for him.

24 is an incredibly poorly-written, high-budget, action TV show.
They can't even remember that Chloe wears a white hat, and would follow any order
Jack gave her in a heartbeat, even risking losing her job and kail time for him.

This is really exciting, but super-stupid, TV.
In the two-hour premier, they traded Jack to the bad guys for "Ahmed the terrorist," we'll say.

Trouble is, any high school kid with an IQ of 44 has done a dope deal, and the first rule in
the dope deal is, "I'll let go of my money after I see the goods."

But the handjobs at America's CTU never bought pot as teens, so they don't have the f-ing brains
to insist that they trade Jack for the bad guy right then, but noooooooooooooooooooooo.

They agreed to a prisoner-swap under the conditions that after the bad guys leave with Jack,
(and CTU agreed to turn all their satellites off) the terrorists would call them at some later date
and tell them where "Ahmed the terrorist," might be hiding.

For this, the president gives up the man who saved the world 13 times?

If only Veronica Mars was the president.
She's waaaaaaay smarter than anyone has ever been on the high-budget 24.

If they render my subversive ass to Gitmo, don't send Jack Bauer to save me.
Send Veronica Mars.

We might "win" but still lose

Joint operations against Shiite militias are far less likely, and not only because of political interference
from the top. Groups like al-Sadr's Mahdi Army don't generally start fire fights with the Americans or
attack Iraqi forces. Their goals are different, quieter. Another U.S. adviser, Maj. Mark Brady, confirms
reports that the Mahdi Army has been continuing to systematically take over Sunni neighborhoods, killing,
terrorizing and forcing people out of their homes. "They're slowly moving across the river," he told Hastings,
from predominantly Shiite eastern Baghdad into the predominantly Sunni west. If the 20,000 additional
American troops being sent to the Iraqi capital focus primarily on Sunni insurgents, there's a chance the
Shiite militias might get bolder. Colonel Duke puts it bluntly: '[The Mahdi Army] is sitting on the 50-yard line
eating popcorn, watching us do their work for them.'" am

I never claimed to have much in the IQ department, but I can't understand how we
have ANY chance to win because the puppet government Bush installed is loyal to Iran.
They're so loyal to Iraq they don't mind dying for it.

How is it I understand that, but America's Little Dictator doesn't?

Subject: the real terrorists

Dear Bart:

I think you are on to something with your real v. fake terrorists rant.

In a similar vain, if real terrorists had attacked us on 9-11, we would have taken measures to actually
improve our security against terrorists such as inspecting incoming cargo, better security at nuclear
power plants, etc.  Instead, we have only pretended to address the terrorist threat with meaningless
gestures like making people take their shoes off at airports and limiting carry-on fluids.

The 9-11 attacks were a hoax.
The security measures taken since are a hoax.
The same people are behind both hoaxes.
 Jim Wilson

Jim, I suspect you are correct, but all we know for sure is Bush is lying.

If he was innocent on 9-11, why couldn't he testify under oath with cameras?
Clinton had to, when it was very, very important to find out about his zipper,
but when it's 3,000 (now 6,000) dead, Bush says we don't need to get to the bottom of it.

But there IS a reason why they've refused to attack us here.
It's scary wondering what that reason might be...

War Escalation Aimed at Securing Iraqi Oil
 by Chris Floyd

At any time within the next few days, the Iraqi Council of Ministers is expected to approve
a new "hydrocarbon law" essentially drawn up by the Bush Administration and its U.K. lackey.

The new bill will "radically redraw the Iraqi oil industry and throw open the doors to the third-largest
oil reserves in the world," say the paper, whose reporters have seen a draft of the new law. "It would
allow the first large-scale operation of foreign oil companies in the country since the industry was
nationalized in 1972." If the government's parliamentary majority prevails, the law should take effect in March.

As the paper notes, the law will give Exxon, BP, Shell and other Bush cronies sweetheart deals,
allowing them to pump gargantuan profits from Iraq's nominally state-owned oilfields for decades to come.

Subject: re: power outage - Welcome to My World

We've had two 3-day outages and a 24 hour outage this winter.
I'm afraid to clean up the yard, every time I do we have another storm.

Lack of power and boredom can really motivate a person.  I finally hooked up
that propane water heater, repaired the gas fireplace in the living room and repaired
that 1000 watt generator I bought used for next to nothing 6 years ago.

Lost the contents of the refrigerator/freezer twice but at least
I could read Bartcop and watch the Daily Show.

Nuke on '24' Causes Fallout for FOX

"How much longer? I hear someone," says the nervous terrorist with a heavy Middle Eastern accent,
just before U.S. agents storm a warehouse where a nuclear device is being assembled. Confusion reigns,
drama builds, the device is detonated and a mushroom cloud looms over Los Angeles. Such is primetime
television in the age of terrorism, or as some critics charge, has "24" gone too far?

"It's the closest television comes to roller coasters," said David Bianculli, of the New York Daily Whore.
"It works well dramatically, and as far as feeding fears, that's what '24' is all about."

 Marijuana's Effects on Actual Driving Performance

All subjects were able to complete the series without suffering any untoward reaction while driving

The MADD crowd certainly wishes it were not so,
but it would serve their purposes well to help spread the word.

The first rule of drug laws and studies ought to be "Tell the truth," but it's not.
The government lies and parents lie to their kids.

The kids know their parents and government are lying to them
so they disregard their words when it comes to more dangerous drugs.

Bush is Mistakenly Aggressive

In fact, administration officials (anonymously) concede that Bush's Iran language may have been
overly aggressive, raising unwarranted fears about military strikes on Tehran. Instead, they say,
Bush was trying to warn Iran to keep its operatives out of Iraq, and to reassure Gulf allies - including
his owners in Saudi Arabia - that he would protect them against Iranian aggression. One senior
administration official says the policy is part of the new Iraq offensive.

Please. I know these people are dumb, but even they aren't this dumb.
Bush is trying to provoke Iran into some kind of Gulf of Tonkin incident.

Bush couldn't run the fry stand at a McDonalds,
but we let him make decisions that make the world different?

With our military barely hanging on,
how can he start a third war (that he'll lose)?

Cheney: We need 'the stomach'


Cheney said on Sunday the United States must show it has the "stomach" to win in Iraq
or it will confirm bin Laden's view that Americans can be pressured to leave.

U.S. allies helping in fighting terrorism must have confidence that the United States
will stay until a successful outcome, he said.

"If the United States doesn't have the stomach to finish the task in Iraq, we put at risk
what we've done in all of those other locations," he said on "Fox News Sunday."

Bin Laden's strategy is to push U.S. presence out of the region through terrorism and Iraq
is currently at the center of that battle, Cheney said. "It's absolutely essential that we win there."

But Dick, wasn't it "essential" that we win in Vietnam, too?
But you said, you had "other priorities" when it was your turn to serve.

You're OK with sending others to die, but you were afraid to fight.
I think that's why people call you a chickenhawk.

"There's a simple reason the world hates Bush's new strategy in Iraq: He spurned their advice.
  He ordered a troop increase, not the first phase of a withdrawal.  He rejected the Iraq Study
  Group (and the advice of his generals).   This was a major snub by Bush, a big-time thumbing
  of his nose at his critics and even at some of those who have advised him. It was the contrarian
  Bush in action again, much as he was in his first term -- only he's less popular now.

The Two Vacuums
  by Peggy Noonan


W"There was something unnerving about the speech, from the jumpy beginning to the stumbles to
the sound glitches. A jittery affair, and some dusk hung over it. At the end I suspected the president's
aides had instructed him again and again not to strut or have an edge. He perhaps understood that as:
Got it--don't be me. He couldn't do wounded wisdom, but he could repress cocky cowboy. The result
was that he seemed not chastened but effaced, not there. It was odd. One couldn't find the personal
geography of the speech.

There are two vacuums in the Iraq story. The first is the vacuum that would be filled in Iraq if America
withdrew tomorrow. The second is the power vacuum that will be created in Washington if Bush is,
indeed, collapsing. The Democrats of Capitol Hill will fill that one. And they seem--and seemed in their
statements after the president's speech--wholly unprepared to fill it. They seem absorbed by the small
picture of partisan advancement at the expense of the big picture, which is that the nation is in trouble
and needs their help. They are sunk in the superficial.

This nutty bitch thinks Democrats are having trouble with reality?
We didn't get 3022 soldiers killed for no reason.

I wish the Nazi right would stop saying the Democrats have no plan.
Bush makes 100 mistakes a day and he commits 100 crimes a day.
His decisions kill soldiers and civilians every day.

Having a democrat in the White House means that will stop.
That's all the voters really need to know.

 Iraq pumped 3.5M barrels daily before Bush invaded
 and then they got their 2003 Halliburton upgrade

Bush's oil gouge, which is going to $100 a barrel
makes $350,000,000 Bush will steal every day.

No wonder they were so eager to start a war,

stealing  $350,000,000 every day.

It's the biggest theft in Earth's history.

Exxon made $10B profit in 90 days
 $100M a day - all profit - because Bush started a fake war


Bush's "Bring 'em on" death taunt is up to...

3,019....3,020 American victims

More death, while the Little Dictator stalls for time.

Who will be the 2008 nominee now that Rudy is pro-quagmire
and McCain has been rejected by the religio-wacko right?

...and how much did BIG OIL make yesterday?
Exxon makes $100M - every day

Bush has killed more than Americans than Osama.

Subject: war for profit

Hey Bart, I just ran across these stats:

"Even while broad market averages have fallen, the share prices of defense-industry
heavy hitters have soared," says Burke.  His report points to seven year-to-date examples:

United Technologies (UTX), up 11%;
Northrop Grumman (NOC), up 12%;
Raytheon (RTN) and Boeing Co. (BA) up 16%;
Rockwell Collins Inc. (COL), up 18%;
General Dynamics (GD), up 21%; and
Lockheed Martin Corp. (LMT) up 25%.

PRNewswire: Defense Industry Poised to Profit

There you have it!

Bush would never allow those companies to be war profiteers
unless he got a slice of the profits, himself.

Basra preparing to install meters
Who's been telling you for years about this?
 Meanwhile, the whore media never brought it up
 it's the reason Bush sent 3,000 men to their deaths


A South Oil Company official said they are getting ready to install meters at Basra oil terminal,
135 km southwest of Basra city, to measure the amount of exported.

He said installing these meters was delayed for three years because there was no company to
undertake the project due to the security situation. U.S. company Parsons accepted the project.

Media director Sallam al-Maksousi said, "Installing these meters would put an end for the
groundless accusations against South Oil Company of involvement in oil smuggling,"

In the meters are being installed, that means peace is about to break out.

"The American press corps has lost its way. There's no reason the media played along with
  the administration's shifting rationales, all untrue in the run-up to the catastrophic war in Iraq.
  Congress rolled over, as we did, no questions asked. But the result of our default has been
  devastating. We lost our halo as the visionaries for a better mankind."

Subject: installing meters on the pumps

Since the Iraqi lackeys are about to sign over their country's oil
to the Gang of Thieves, why NOT put back the meters?

Now they can steal the oil legally, so there's no need to hide the amounts.
And all our troops can switch from fighting "insurgents" to guarding Exxon's new turf.
Mission accomplished.

If ONLY someone had predicted all this. . . .
