No wonder Condi is loosing it!

Mr. President,
Is Condi starting to lose it? Her curt comment last week to the new European Union President is another example of her plight.

She met with 25 foreign ministers of the EU last week when she got involved in a
tense exchange of words with Finnish Foreign Minister Erkki Tuomioja, the present EU president.

The topic should not have been a surprise, but diplomats are so 'diplomatic' that the issue of rendition flights involving the EU was not on the official agenda so all discussion was politely tabled. But Rice just had to push the group, saying all countries must keep up the fight against terrorism. I guess this was just too much hypocrisy for the Finnish diplomat to take so he replied: "We all agree on the need to fight terrorism but we should do so in a way that does not create more terrorism in the future."
Rice shot back: "Let's deal with those who are trying to kill us now and leave the future for some other time."
Unwilling to leave her the last word as the meeting broke up, Tuomioja added: "The future is with us today."

Even diplomats from Finland are losing their patience with your never-ending bullshit. But, why did Rice lose her cool like that?

There are so many possible reasons for Condi to loose her cool, I don't know where to start.

Perhaps the answer lies within your more recent administration failures, embarrassments, and outright screw-ups.


Maybe it was because :
Canada recently ruled that you illegally abducted an innocent Canadian and had him tortured for 10 months in Syria?

Or maybe it is you finally admitted the United States had been sending many suspects to secret prisons around the world, which makes all prior U.S. denials of the program's existence, one more example of U.S falsehoods you gave to the world.

Or maybe it was the very-revealing military and moral support for Israel's attack on Lebanese civilians and infrastructure, which solidified America's "real" position in Mid East as anti-Arab. Thus making all of your talk about supporting fragile Lebanese democracy a farce.

Perhaps it was the torture debate by the Congress and the consequential rewriting of the Geneva Convention by the Republican leadership which tries to apply a slight veneer of makeup to hide the country's black eye. But instead makes the U.S. look inhuman, blood thirsty, and cruel with it's version of 'torture light.'

Maybe it was the recent
NIE report pulled together from all 16 American spy agencies which stated that the Iraq occupation has made us more unsafe. How can this be? This is completely contrary to what you have been peddling. You even bragged that Republicans can keep us safer.


Or maybe it is Pakistan. Pakistan has become very troublesome. They just
signed a treaty with the Tailiban, and the rumor is that they gave Bin Laden a pass if he lives a 'peaceful life.' to which you threatened Pakistan that you would enter their country in order to track terrorists down.




We all remember your boast that you would bring him in 'dead or alive.' But, nearly five years after your vow to Americans, you disbanded the unit called 'Alec Station' which was created to track Bin Laden down.

So, all the recent threats of U.S. military action inside Pakistan to counter al-Qaida militants is just to help to resurrect your 'tough macho-man' image, without the flight suit. By the way Pakistan's government vowed to not let foreign forces enter its territory, a day after your John Wayne impression.

Maybe Musharraf's book deal prompted him to spill the beans and tell us that you threatened Pakistan that unless they joined your "coalition of the willing," you would bomb them into submission. Musharraf also leaked the fact that
you had to pay Pakistan $ millions to turn over Taliban prisoners to our CIA.



Pakistan is a real bitch of a problem; unbeknown to many people, Pakistan has the capacity to build nuclear weapons. So you need him in power but not make him a target for a coup by the extremists living in his country.

Musharraf is on shaky ground because you forced him to support you for and that bit of news will make his government even shakier because the Pakistanis already hated us.

Although relations between Pakistan and India have become almost as testy as those with the U.S.
You pushed through the sale of 36 F-16C/D Block 50/52 Falcon fighters to make amends for selling India once-prohibited nuclear technology and not to Pakistan. Congress was pissed off at the short notice you gave them to approve the sale, but you had to act quickly to hold off the erosion of the 'shot-gun' alliance.

There are other issues such as Russia's retaliatory actions for not being admitted into the WTO, China's growing military, Somalia's Islamists, Darfur's genocide, and the increasing number of troops needed in Iraq. These are just a few of the issues which should get her hooked on ambien.

Although any of these issues could make anyone really frustrated with your policies and quite cranky. I am guessing your decision to rush
the deployment of a major "strike group" of ships, including the nuclear aircraft carrier Eisenhower as well as a cruiser, destroyer, frigate, submarine escort, and supply ship, to the Persian Gulf, just off Iran's western coast, probably takes the cake.

Silly Rice, she thought she could make some headway with Iran. But you and Cheney cut her legs out from under her and sent in the heavy artillery to offer them a deal they can't refuse.

This has the feel of Japan's surprise attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7 1941. They too had diplomats in the country they were going to attack at the same time the Hawaiian Island was being bombed, except that this will not be a surprise to Iran.


Whether the news from the NIE, National Intelligence Estimate, resonates loudly enough with enough Americans to drown out your administration's ongoing lies is yet to be seen.

But, If just the portion of the report, which states that the Iraq occupation has compromised the safety of our country, could be enough to finally allow Americans to see through the fog of administration lies; well all I can say is hallelujah! It has been a long time coming.

It may be too late however and I may finally have to unearth my cache of weapons, pick up my bulldogs, go to my secure encampment with three years of supplies and hunker down until you leave office, because I have faith in your ability to make any and all situations worse.

With all of these balls in the air, I will bet many of them will hit the ground. I only hope they don't produce those mushroom clouds you exaggerated about once upon a time when we were relatively safe, and we lost only 3000 people to our enemies.

If you are on a mission for god; may Allah help us.

Mr. President,
For the sake of our democracy and standing in the world the correct guideline for a United States presidents must be, "The means justify the ends" not "The ends justify the means."  

When you were re-elected you spoke of capital you believed you had. What you spent however was the capital that the United States had. Our country had significant capital and a significant reputation as the gold standard for democracy. I say had because we can't claim the high ground since you became our president.

You were badly mistaken about the capital you had and failed to pass any national programs which garnered any prasie from the American people. Your constant slid in the polls highlight that fact.

I am not going to say you purposely sabotaged America. I believe you thought you were doing the right thing. Your beliefs guided your choice of people you listened to and who, in turn reinforced your beliefs.

The mortal flaws of your presidency probably comes from who you are and how you grew up plus your need to leave a legacy larger than your father's. You were told that to achieve the greatness you sought you had to take the bold moves the neo-cons wanted since the Reagan years. Your chances for success were further degraded by your administration's hatred for discarding anything Clinton had pursued. You not only threw out the baby with the bathwater junior you threw out the whole damn nursery.

Your entire presidency has been run like one long political campaign. In short, your term can be summed up as:


The "ENDS JUSTIFY THE MEANS" Presidency

This weekend, the Pervez Musharraf the President of Pakistan will be on 60 minutes. His interview will show how low you had to stoop. To get countries to join in your folly, you had to either pay or threaten countries to join the so called "Coalition of the Willing."

Today you and the "so-called-rebel" Republican leaders agreed to a "torture light" version of the Geneva Convention. It gave you the right to determine what torture really also means and retroactively absolve any "misdeeds/torture/murder" by our forces in their pursuit of intelligence of questionable value.

You obviously believe it is ok to rewrite the Geneva Convention and bypass human rights doctrines which we were once known for. All you had to do was bully Congress and trash the Geneva Convention," to provide you a legal shield and still allow you to torture suspects as you see fit.

Abu Gharib, Guantanimo, extraordinary rendition, the unlawful abduction extraction to Syria to have him tortured for 10 months, the kidnapping of an Egyptian cleric off the streets in Milan and sent to a foreign country to be "aggressively questioned," are examples of your power to detain, extradite, inflicting pain and kidnap at-will to satisfy your felt need to root out terror heedless of the consequences to our standing in the world, our democratic ideals and future negotiations with foreign countries.

You have consistently lowered environmental standards on CO2 emissions, mercury emissions, arsenic and rocket fuel content in our water supplies, and ignored Global warming, to satisfy business interests. And I won't even mention how you sold access to our national forests to lumber industries.
Trashing the environment is a minor impediment when it comes to satisfying your commitment to industry. Support for American industry always trumps the welfare of the American people.


Your whole time in office you have bypassed Congress wherever you could. The 600+ signing statements you attached to all those laws passed bu Congress states that the laws do not pertain to you if you feel they hinder your definition of executive powers. Your program to do what ever you see fit, supersedes the balance of power the founders established among the three arms of the government and the need to follow the Constitution and the Bill of Rights is more of a guideline instead of a hard rule when it gets in your way.

You allowed Rumsfield to use cluster bombs and depleted uranium in Afghanistan and in Iraq to improve American fire power against insurgents regardless of the collateral damage. Killing a few thousand citizens here and there can't be helped when you are bombing Iraq for the greater good of imposing your form of democracy on a country that didn't ask for it to begin with.

Filling critical positions in every arm of the government with inept, but loyal partisans like Brown in FEMA were important to keep everyone in line with your policies despite any contrary scientific studies or reports. Poor support for Americans who depend on government services is not as important as having someone supporting the company line.

It is also important to keep information of government agency operations is hidden. Your administration has classified more information than any other presidency in history. You even recalled and reclassified 30 year-old records from the Achieves. Transparency of our government operations has been hidden in direct violation to "Sunshine Laws." Congress and the American people's need to know. Transparency is not as important as providing yourself the freedom to do what you what you want to do without anyone looking over your shoulder. Keeping your activities secret is more important than supporting the laws of our country.

There are so many more examples, but I'll stop here.

The success of following your ideology and the rules you consistently follow is as obvious as the:
Bombed out businesses and homes in Palestine and in Iraq,
shape of the American middle-class,
purity of our drinking water,
quality of our air
quality of our health care system
reputation of our country around the world,
recovery efforts after Katrina,
deteriorating health of thousands of World Trade Center workers whom you lied to.
State of nuclear proliferation in the world,
number of dead and wounded soldiers and Iraqi citizens.
Number of new left-wing countries in South America since you took office
Number of new gray hears on your head.
