China weapon

How about some more cake?

Mr. President,
Do you wake up some mornings wishing your Florida minions hadn't worked so hard to assure your presidency?

But, hey, every once in a while the clouds part and some sunshine peeks through.

Congratulations to you and Cheney for your work on having the "
torture bill" known as "The Military Commissions Act of 2006" and the "you can detain anyone" bill passed. It’s like having your cake and eating it too.


These laws allow you to decide what constitutes "torture" and they also provide anyone from your government, immunity from any lawsuits for anything any of your interrogators are doing, will do or have done to anyone.

They also provide you with the ability to claim anyone in the United States to be charged as a suspect without legal access to any information that substantiates the reasons for their imprisonment. In legal terms, habeas corpus has been suspended for anyone you choose to define as a "combatant."It could be someone who buys an Arabic paper, downloads Arabic news, speaks with a "potential" terrorist, knows a "potential" terrorist, or writes critical articles that you believe are "aiding the terrorists."

It's better to step on a few 200 year-old quaint rules here and there; imprison/torture thousands of innocent foreigners and Americans, than miss one "potential" terrorist. Besides, most Americans don't care as long as you don't mess with their guns and freedom to raise hell on a Saturday night.

It was about time you had some good news.

It's been a heartache lately in the mainstream media with Iraq, Afghanistan, Foley, North Korea, Iran, Abramoff, and disgusted Evangelists.

The terrible news from the National Intelligence Estimate that states our presence in Iraq has fueled a ton of anti-American nut jobs across the world, the steady stream of resignations and indictments of Republican lawmakers, the increased violence in Iraq's civil war, the increased violence in Afghanistan, Iran's refusal to stop their nuclear power program and all the "telling" books recently published with the help of trusted members of your administration have been a bitch on your poll numbers.

Whew that's a boat-load of bad news!

Your "attack and discredit the messenger" machine has never been so busy.

I feel for poor Condi as she tries to head off an
arms race in the south east while you announce that your space program takes precedence over any other country, beginning a "space arms" race." It all sounds a little contrary to me.


You are pushing countries not to build nukes while you clearly intend to build up your space weapons systems.

You can't seem to change your pattern; this sounds like another "I will have my cake and eat it too" approach to foreign policy.

Hey, Japan, and South Korea, "You can't have any nukes, but I will build space weapon systems and you can't do anything out there unless you are my buddy." In your patented, typical "my way or the highway" approach to foreign policy, your administration's has refused to enter negotiations or even less formal discussions on the potential weaponization of space.

According to Theresa Hitchens, director of the nonpartisan Center for Defense Information in Washington, said that the new policy "kicks the door a little more open to a space-war fighting strategy" and has a "very unilateral tone to it."

Could this have anything to do with the incident last week where China "
painted" one of your satellites from the ground?

At the end of September, China has beamed a ground-based laser at U.S. spy satellites that highlighted the vulnerability of American space systems.

No one seems to know what China was doing; they might have been testing their capability to track satellites, not damage them, but even you are capable of only imagining their negative intents.

The House of Representatives tried to block a planned test of "Starfire," a satellite and star tracking program, for fiscal 2007 after they learned it could also be used as an anti-satellite weapon. But, somehow the funds were reinstated after the Air Force assured lawmakers it would be used only for tracking.

Yea, sure, and you don't believe in pre-emption of war either.

The Chinese incident emphasized the need to develop an international code of conduct for space. Currently, "We don't need no badges; there are no rules governing what 40 countries that have satellites, and about a dozen countries that have launch capability, can or can't do.

Go it alone buddy, those foreign bastards can't claim your oil or your private use outer space. My question is when will you get your fill of "cake?"
