Petraeus

When does a Commander become a murderer?

Mr. President,
I saw you on TV today, boy have you aged. What happened to that happy-go-lucky aw-shucks goof ball so many people wanted to have a beer with?

You looked old, and tired. The stage makeup didn’t do you any favors either, it could not hide your insincerity at all.

Todays news confirmed the war was about oil when the company owned by the head of your Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board, The Hunt Company of Dallas,
received the rights to drill in the Kurdistan Region of Northern Iraq. You sealed the deal today, when you said our military was going to have a permanent presence in Iraq.

Unbelievable. You mean to tell the nation that Iraq’s fragile government, a government who can’t agree on anything suddenly made up and asked us to lay claim to their oil and to stay forever?

Sorry about the outburst, I momentarily raised my head out of the gutter of Bush imperialism and just for a minute or two, divested myself of the cynicism you infused in me in since you took office.

Staying forever totally works since the first thing your military secured was the oil ministry after you invaded the country.

The military will have to stay and keep protecting those oil fields for us, now that we have the rights to drill there.

This deal upset some Iraqis and the oil sharing deal is in
some jeopardy, but I'm sure enough money and guns will get spread around to resolve it over time. Some mullah for the mullahs some shekels for the sheiks here and there should do the trick.

Democrats running for president must have been incensed as they heard you exclaim that you were allowing a few thousand soldiers to come home soon.

This is akin to taking credit for the sun rising, or as John Edwards said you might as well take credit for gravity too, because those troops were already scheduled to come home after already being in Iraq for over a year.

Those soldiers have had to endure all kinds of attacks but only General Petraeus have had to face attacks back at home.

Just because you used all the government agencies as extensions of the Republican party, didn’t mean you had to drag General Petraeus into the fray. But I guess you were forced to do it because no one believes anything you have to say anymore.

Standing behind the general and let him take the flak for your losing war was cowardly. It was significantly more cowardly that ducking your duty in the Texas Air National Guard, and ducking service in Vietnam. I even saw one internet site that called it "The Petraeus War."

Putting aside your cowardliness for now, your behavior begs the question, "When does a Commander-in-Chief cross the line and become a murderer?"

If you know there will not be a successful end to Iraq and you still send young men there to drive around the country until they get killed; can that be called
premeditation?

If you refuse to pull troops in this losing war because you do not want your legacy to be saddled with images like the helicopter leaving the American Embassy in Saigon, can that be called
motivation?

You have
motive, opportunity and intent. Hell, it is even pre-meditated!

And if the Republican and Democrat congressmen who are able to stop you, do not; can they be considered accessories to murder?

It is Just a thought, for you to munch on junior.

A huge success

Mr. President,
How many more soldiers are going to die as you keep kicking the can down the road onto the lap of the next president?

For soldiers serving in Iraq, your plan to drag the war on, must give the phrase “dying to please” a whole new meaning.

Democrats have been severely chastised for not following up on the American people’s wishes to bring this horrendous war to an end.

Some Democrats believe that they need to do this slowly, intelligently or risk a second republican era of deadly errors.

Do they feel they need a well thought out, solid plan to deal with the backlash the GOP will incite, before they act aggressively towards withholding funds or are they just chicken?

Now Patraeus; he's not chicken and he is a good Bush soldier, just like Colin Powell . They were both credible, which is why you use them.

The lions at the coliseum were prepared for the cherry-picked information your General used to claim progress. The GAO, UN, British and Iraqis themselves have said the surge was a failure and the political solution is as far off as it has ever been.

Patraeus is not playing to most of the American public. Their hearts are already hardened against you and your war. He knows his target audience is a small group of evangelists in a desperate effort to persuade them to continue their support for bushie-Republicans up for the run of their lives in 08’.

In the mean time the Democrats questioning Patraeus had a field day picking the general's comments apart. They have to vent on someone. They are powerless to do much of anything else unless they grow a spine and agree to stop funding the madness.

But if they do unite and attract some republican support, they risk the powerful wrath of the right-wing machine which will deftly try to slice them to pieces. Democrats will be called traitors, and cowards in the “face of victory”.

The Democrats may feel they could “OWN” the war if they do not have a good strategy for countering the powerful right-wing media machine.

If the Republicans are good at anything it is destroying things and people.

Take Rummy for example he destroyed Iraq but yet he still able to pick up where dead-eye-Dick Cheney’s enthusiastic and rosy outlook had left off by pronouncing Afghanistan a huge success.

In the
interview, he just gave at his ranch near Taos, N.M. he also claimed that his Department of Defense is not responsible for any failures in Iraq or in Afghanistan.” That's a funny thing to say after claiming his effort to be so successful.

NEW YORK -- In an interview billed as his first since leaving the top Pentagon post, Donald Rumsfeld calls Afghanistan "a big success," but says U.S. efforts in Iraq are hampered by the failure of Iraq's government to establish a foundation for democracy.


The article went on to say you don’t call him anymore and he does not miss you. Rumsfeld said he couldn't recall the last time you called him. He was also asked about you.

"Do you miss him?" "Um, no," Rumsfeld said.


Rummy has not allowed any grass grow under his feet, he is now part of a think tank. How low was the bar lowered for Rummy to get into that club?

SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Former U.S. Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld has joined the Hoover Institution at Stanford University as a visiting fellow and will serve on a task force focused on issues pertaining to ideology and terror, the California think tank said on Friday.



What can I say about Rummy? You can take the man out of the land of delusions, but you can’t take the delusions out of the man.

I am sad to hear the
bad news about the Japanese Prime Minister. But since you have a well established reputation for turning everything you touch into shit, it is not surprising to hear that one more of your loyal war-buddies had to resign because he supported you.

TOKYO: The U.S. ambassador to Japan urged the government there Wednesday to extend its mission in support of the U.S.-led military operation in Iraq — a mission that has split Japanese public opinion.




The lap where the ex- Prime Minister Tony Blair sat, is still warm and now you have to contend with
losing another Bush-ass-kisser, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

TOKYO (Reuters) - Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said on Wednesday he was resigning because there would be a better chance of continuing Japan's support for U.S. military operations in Afghanistan under a new leader."I determined today that I should resign," Abe told a news news conference at his official residence in Tokyo. "We should seek a continued mission to fight terrorism under a new prime minister."



At least those Prime Ministers had a choice to follow your lead. The same can’t be said for those young soldiers you keep ordering into Iraq’s shooting gallery.

When you squeeze too hard; the truth is bound to come out

Mr. President,

Your legendary grip on information has some inherent problems junior.

The tighter the grip, and the more outrageous your actions are, the more pressure some people feel to get important information out, hence, we get a ton of tell-all books and scores of unnamed sources are spurting out information all over the place.

Over the years, you have provided conspiracy theorists lots of tasty bits to munch on. One early theory was that the real reason you invaded Iraq was to secure their oil fields for your own purposes.

These conspiracy nuts are something else. But on the other hand if you leave a monkey alone with a word processor long enough, they will eventually type something that is true. And even a broken wind-up clock is correct twice a day, right?

I have a word processor so let me espouse my own theory here. Given todays news it seems more probable that Cheney’s secret energy policy set the framework for neo-conservatives’ plan for American imperialism. And that meant you had to invade Iraq to get access to their vast oil reserves.

Before the invasion you stirred up the fact that Saddam had sold oil under the table despite the embargo the UN had imposed on Iraq. Several people have been investigated from several countries including people from the United States.


From: Reuters news service.

“NEW YORK (Reuters) - Prosecutors promised on Monday to prove that Texas oilman Oscar Wyatt paid millions of dollars in kickbacks to Saddam Hussein's government, earning him a privileged position in Iraq.""Assistant U.S. Attorney Stephen Miller told jurors at opening arguments of Wyatt's trial that prosecutors would present photos, audio tapes, bank records, U.N. records, and Iraqi government records proving Wyatt paid kickbacks to win Iraqi oil contracts.”



This last Friday another oil man from Texas and a long time Bush supporter picked up where Wyatt left off.



By BLOOMBERG NEWS

“The Hunt Oil Company of Dallas has become the first international company to receive permission to drill for oil in the Kurdistan region of Northern Iraq since the local government issued an oil-and-gas law last month.”In January 2006, Mr. Hunt was appointed by President George W. Bush to the President’s Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board in Washington, D.C."





Something fishy is going on here junior. I suppose you hope no one will notice the dispiriting coincidence that on the eve of the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks that one of your close Texas oil buddies has just secured the rights to drill for oil in Iraq.

All we had before this was very strong suspicions. The evidence such as this oil contract to Hunt is nailing that suspicion down.

Loyal Fox viewers won’t acknowledge any of this of course, because they love you no matter what you do to them.
Although your poor supporters are suffering the same lack of freedoms and disastrous economic policies like the rest of us, Fox bushies have the mindset of an abused spouse.

Abused spouses keep going back to their abusers regardless of the number of times they get beat up. So you always have that going for you.

The rest of us can see you for what you are and what you are really doing to our democracy and what you have done to Iraq.

Hiding behind General Patreus like hiding behind Colin Powell will not get you very far with the average American anymore. You have been caught lying to us too often and too many dots are popping up which ordinary people can now connect for themselves. The resulting picture is anything but flattering for your administration and your legacy.

Speaking about your administration, your original cabinet has been so decimated, that by the end of you term you may be able to have a going away party in a phone booth.

Is anyone keeping track of how many Republicans have left your administration through indictments, convictions, or are under investigation? The good bad and the ugly are leaving the U.S.S. Bush Shit.

Senator Hagel, John Warner and Wayne Allard have announced that they too, are retiring and will not seek re-election. These high-powered, well-respected Republican senators have suddenly decided to opt out of government service.

None of these senators had given anyone any prior inkling that they were leaving up until now.

Why now? We can only guess. Do they believe their party’s conservative ideals have been hijacked by the extreme right wing fanatics that you put in charge? Are they just sick of the combative politics you brought to Congress? Did they want to spend more time with their families? What ever it was it had to have been significant for people with such long service to our country to suddenly announce they are quitting.

Regardless of the reasons, their refusal to run again, adds to the GOP burden for this election cycle. This is just one more ominous note in the Republican party’s 2008 swan song.

Every week you have a new headache to deal with. It just sucks being you doesn't it?
Senator Craig said he had his fingers crossed when he pleaded guilty to a lesser charge after he was caught soliciting gay sex in Minneapolis, so it didn't count.

Your Texas oil buddy's deal for Iraq oil, all-but-confirms the fact who benefits from your war besides Halliburton; and it further adds to the suspicion that you are despicable enough to trade American and Iraqi blood for oil.

Today’s General Patraeus report is not going to fool many people, except the ones that want to be fooled. The pre-approved bush-message he espoused was a pretty transparent stop-gap measure; a life buoy to keep GOP congressmen up for re-election afloat and a horrendous reason to keep our soldiers in harms way. Nothing will get better until the Iraqi government coalesces into a unified body. And Iraq will not get that opportunity as long as we are used as a crutch.

Didn’t General Patraeus learn anything from Colin Powell’s now-infamous UN speech?
