And now these homicidal bastards want to attack Iran.
And as bad as that is, the opposition party (Note to viewers of FOX and Friends: that would be the Democrats) seems perfectly content to let the administration commit yet another blunder of historical proportions for no reason other than political gain. You see, the more Bush and company screw things up, the more they destroy your once-great nation, the easier it will be for the Dems at the polls next year. Apparently the death count means not a thing to these pathetic, gutless assholes. Aw, hell! What's one or two million more corpses between friends, ay?
The Democrats seem to have forgotten that it is only the Congress that can declare war (YIKES! It embarrasses me now to even remember that I was registered to vote in that party for twenty years!) When Bush and Cheney attack the (like it or not) sovereign nation of Iran without the constitutionally mandated congressional approval, impeachment proceedings should begin at once. If that fails to happen, the party of FDR will be destroyed next year with another third party uprising - COUNT ON IT. My advise to them? Keep a wary eye over your left shoulder, kiddies!
Again, for the second or third time this month, I must quote Paul Krugman (I think he's really neat, don't you?). From his column in this morning's New York Times:
"The idea that bombing will bring the Iranian regime to its knees - and bombing is the only option, since we've run out of troops - is pure wishful thinking. Last year Israel tried to cripple Hezbollah with an air campaign, and ended up strengthening it instead. There's every reason to believe that an attack on Iran would produce the same result, with the added effects of endangering US forces in Iraq and driving oil prices well into the triple digits."
We are already in the process of fighting two wars that we are - make no mistake about it - destined to lose. And here we are, about to insanely embark upon a third. Am I hallucinating this? Am I missing something here? What gives? All this week, George W. Bush has, once again, been brazenly playing the fear card by conjuring images of a third world war if we don't "do something" about Iran. Here's a nasty little piece of information that you can take to the bank: Attacking Iran will, almost assuredly, make World War III inevitable.
The main argument against impeaching this disgusting administration seems to be that there are only less than fifteen months to go until they're history. How much more damage can they possibly do? What's the point?
Here's the point:
The damage they have already done to this country and this planet in so short a time will take generations to undo. The irreparable harm that they can still do in what comparably little time they have left is nothing short of incalculable. Because of the stress that they have placed on the American economy, our entire social and economic infrastructure could collapse at any moment. And don't think for a minute that it's beneath them to stage an overthrow of our system of government - they've already accomplished that! That they are at this moment planning an electoral coup next year in order to perpetuate their power, I have little doubt. Don't forget that those easily manipulable, Die-Bolt electronic voting machines are now in place in more than enough swing states to do the job. Why do you think it is that in 2000 and 2004 - for the first time since scientific polling began - the exit polls did not conform to the election results? Is that a mere coincidence? C'mon, folks!
Don't deceive yourselves into believing that we're over there fighting the bad guys - WE ARE THE BAD GUYS!!! HELLO??? We "preemptively" invaded a country without provocation - a country that was a danger to no one but itself. That is what is known as a war crime. That is why the Nazi hierarchy were all hanged on the gallows sixty years ago - Hey! that gives me a great idea!....never mind. Don't kid yourselves into believing that the motives of this White House are or ever were honorable. To anyone dumb enough to believe that: I've got a portable, kerosene heater made out of balsa wood that I would just love to sell you!
When (not "if" but "when") our despicable, half-witted little thug-in-chief orders the military to begin a campaign of bombing in Iran, the House and Senate should initiate impeachment proceedings immediately. Not only that, but any and all military officers who comply with the president's orders should also be held criminally culpable. None of this "I vas only followink orders" jazz. International law clearly outlaws unprovoked attacks. Period.
The Republican party is already doomed. Let's hope and pray that the Democrats finally show some long-overdue courage. Otherwise....
