Democracy R not U.S.

Mr. President,
When it comes to implementing democracy across the globe, you certainly have a deadly touch.


Remember those days when you had every Iraqi voting booth protected with our troops to assure the population it was safe to vote in Iraq as the first stage of Iraqi democracy?

The first Iraqi voting effort was such a proud moment for you; I remember members of your cabinet posing for cameras with their purple thumbs when Iraqi people voted.

Are you just as enthused when tens of thousands of those same citizens marched in the streets burning Israeli and American flags in protest of the Israeli continued destruction of Lebanese country and your material and political support of the Israeli military? Now that war-torn nation is in civil war and required even more U.S. troops.

You also bragged about your support for the Lebanese democracy, I believe your administration named it the Cedar Revolution similar to the Orange Revolution which you also supported in the Ukraine.

Unfortunately, both of your highly praised and U.S. supported democratic efforts have fallen on hard times.

The Orange Revolution sputtered out only to be lead now by Russia's candidate Viktor Yanukovych as prime minister, and Lebanon is another bad story.

Your Cedar Revolution in Lebanon is as dead as those children in Qana; both killed off by your Israeli buddies and neo-cons in your cabinet. Those poor bastards thought that your support was a good thing until they started to duck U.S. -supplied jets, burning U.S. -supplied jet fuel, dropping U.S-supplied missiles on their country. They didn't realize that your unconditional support for Israel trumps any earlier blather about your support for their fledgling government.


I won't even get into your disastrous CIA-led effort to overthrow Hugo Chavez in Venezuela. It was sad and stupid.

You were also quite contemptuous of Palestinian people who democratically elected parliament consisted of several Hamas members. The citizens murdered at the hands of Israel don't even get hardly any ink.

Anyone who follows your hypocritical foreign policy initiatives knows your happy talk about pushing democracy is merely lip service and only pr for your base.

The world fully understands you truly have a black thumb when it comes to growing democracy in the world. If I lived in one of those countries you wished to have a democratic society, I would immediately start digging a bomb shelter or just kiss my ass good bye.

We're going to need more jails.

Mr. President,
I have often wondered how far you and your administration would go to quell dissenting opinion. We have seen you infiltrate and monitor anti-war pre-screen audience members at Republican rallies, erect fenced in pens for demonstrator’s miles away from republican leaders platforms and now you have revoked university professors' visas because you don't like their ideological or political views.

The ACLU is
tracking about 15 cases where academics have been refused entry because of their beliefs and nothing else.


It is obvious what you want to do to all the American people who disagree with you or have different beliefs.

Your recently proposed
legislation allowing you can incarcerate American citizens without due process or access to a lawyer for an indeterminate amount of time if you SUSPECT them of having terrorist ties.



This is not new; you held Jose
Padilla aka "dirty bomber," an American citizen for three and a half years without charging him with anything. The courts finally pressured you to either charge or release him. In three in a half year's time with the best lawyers you had you could not find any evidence to charge him with terrorism or in possession of explosive materials; but you did charge him with, "conspiring to kill or injure or kidnap people overseas." The proof you have obtained has been described by one District Court Judge as "very light on facts."

If political dissent is a good reason to keep university professors out of our country, it should be good enough to put dissenting Americans in legal limbo, like Padilla.

If you get your way, you may have to build more
prisons and we have more people in prison than any other nation now. America spends $60 billion to keep 2.2 million people behind bars.

Cheney knows a great company that can handle no-bid contracts.

I say hang Mel Gibson and then give them a fair trial.

Mr. President,
I am always amazed at the logic extreme right wing nuts use to justify their views and their effect on the news/propaganda we hear.

This week Mel Gibson's name filled the air waves and the internet with rants about his ant-semitic comments after he was pulled over after driving while drunk.

With everything, that is going so horribly wrong in the world today. This is "The story?" This is the story that gets everyone's shorts in a bunch?
gibson-meil
I know it's hard, but think for a minute junior. Gibson was drunk; he said some anti-semitic remarks. He didn't kill anyone, he didn't burn a cross on a lawn; he didn't deface a tomb. He made some stupid comments and even if he believes what he said ... so what! He is not in a position to affect national policy on Jewish affairs. He is an entertainer ...period.

This same week the Army general who ran the Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, prison and supervised the military team at Abu Gharib using torture techniques on detained suspects, was praised at a retirement ceremony this Monday as an "innovator and an exceptional leader."

Maj. Gen. Geoffrey D. Miller was
awarded the Distinguished Service Medal distinguishing himself for "exceptional meritorious service" in a "duty of great responsibility."

But, this bit of news was not emphasized. Here is a man who probably caused the death of several soldiers at the very least and outright murder and assault of hundreds of innocent civilians at the most.


It is sad, how we allow ourselves to be jerked to and fro by people who desperately want to keep our attention on what they want us to think, like the Israelis.

The influence of Israeli lobby groups not only affect our foreign policy they also significantly influence our news media.

Anyone with an internet connection can see the stark difference between the world's press coverage and the U.S. coverage of the Lebanon war.

Much of the American press uses assumption-loaded opinions taken as facts, to support Israel and vilify anyone who speaks or acts against Israel, hence, we get Mel Gibson stories.

You better hope the American people don't get smart. If they read stories involving Israel in the foreign press before they make up their minds they may begin turning off American news and spend more time watching phony news like Jon Stewart.

I have jerked the other way because so much of the American press has a definite pro-Israel bias. I hate it when people try to manipulate what I should think, and I don't demand my doctor prescribe TV advertised drugs either.

Every story has two sides. And I have to force myself to remember that even if the U.S. media pushes the Israeli viewpoint heavily doesn't necessarily make the day's story to be untrue, but it surely makes me very suspicious.

Especially when my own research has shown Israel to be more of a villain than I was led to believe. They have murdered American soldiers in the past as well as torture kill and imprison many innocent Palestinians.

I had high expectations for a country of people who began with many survivors of Hitler's death camps. I expected them to value human life and abhor the evil that militarism brings. But sadly, I have seen the Jewish state take on more and more aspects of a military-dominated state.

I have read reports from neutral groups like the U.N. and human rights groups and so far Israel looks pretty guilty. They have targeted civilians, used cluster bombs in heavily populated areas, shot at ambulances, and fleeing civilians.

According to international law these are war crimes along the lines of what Hitler did to their grandparents. But, thanks to the overriding influence of the Jewish organizations, these reports may never see the light of day in the American media, but we will see talking heads frothing at the mouth over Mel Gibson's drunken comments.

Give it up junior, there is no pony in this pile of shit.

Mr. President,
Is it your misguided optimism, alcoholic psychosis or your drug addled mind, that brings us such mind-numbing comments like, "the problems in Lebanon is terrible but it also provides us with another opportunity to remake the Middle East into a region of democracy?"

Are you still looking for that pony in that room full of shit junior?

At least you are consistent. You present a worst case scenario before you act out your schemes. Afterwards, you paint the best case outcome.
My daughter would describe you as Eeyore from "Winnie the Poo" as you low ball expectations before you implement your disastrous policies and schizophrenically change to "Pollyanna" when you describe how wonderful everything is afterwards.

I hate to be the one to tell you, but there is no good outcome for the "proxy war" you are having with Iran.

It feels a little like the cold war years when the United States funded and propped up puppet regimes while the Soviet Union funded and propped their puppet regimes to fight our puppet regimes. The puppet regimes sustained the death and destruction while America and the Soviet Union sat back and cheered their teams on.

Israel has had it easy so far since they had their puppet regime (America) pre-emptively invade their Arab nemesis, Iraq despite their lack of WMD's or danger to the United States.


At least the Lebanon war has not claimed any American soldier's lives or bombed any American cities. This time your puppet master has to get his own hands bloody.

So keep sending Israel, jet fuel satellite reconnaissance and bombs they want. Let the Israeli people live in bunkers. Iran can continue to send Lebanon, more guns and missiles while the Lebanese bodies litter the streets. It's no skin off your nose.

You and Iran can sit back and cheer your teams on from afar and if Israel soldiers die so what, if Hizballah soldiers die so what.

It brings back the good old days when we lived from day to day wondering if the soviets would be crazy enough to pre-emptively start Armageddon.

Now the shoe is on the other foot; the rest of the world is wondering day-to-day which international disaster will trigger a fantasy episode in your mind that justifies a pre-emptive nuclear strike.

Nixon considered
dropping an atomic weapon on North Vietnam during the Vietnam war, so it wouldn't be the first time a paranoid and criminal Republican president thought about using nuclear weapons when all else fails.
