I wrote this unpublished article in February 2007, yet by Replacing Bush with McCain, it does not lose anything from its rhetoric.
Bush is Not Dreaming but Incubating an Imperial Monster
"A psychotherapist, were Bush willing to see one, or a wise counselor, might be able to help the president to understand his deepest wishes and see how he dissociates on behalf of them. Bush might then arrive at the conclusion that too many Shia, Sunnis and Kurds seem more interested in killing one another than in building a democracy, and that democracy is his dream, not theirs. For this president, what a frightening thought that would be." (Bush is Dreaming and Won't Wake Up: The president's persistence in the face of reality represents a disturbing state of mind by Paul Siegel; The Long Island, New York Newsday February 11, 2007)
There is little doubt that Bush is delusional or disassociated from facts, but it is not as the psychologist author wants us to believe (Bush Dreaming and Won't Wake Up, by Paul Siegel). The author mistakenly blames the victim, the Iraqi people, for not having the dream of democracy that supposedly had overtaken our president.
No, this is pure imperial B.S. For decades the US-Inc and its Anglo ally helped and used dictators in the Middle East to exploit their resources. For instance, when Saddam was mass murdering his people, when he was using chemical weapons against Kurds and Iranians, the US-Inc and UK-Inc supported him by all means. Then, when time came to dispose him like a used crime weapon, he was given a deceptive wink to invade Kuwait, which ultimately helped the US-Inc to establish in the region and sell the threatened countries billion of dollars of weapons, which they were unable to maintain or use; they had to hire American soldiers to attend those weapons.
Then, the US-Inc decided to leave Israel as the super power's only duper power in the region, with no challenge from its neighbors, and, together with its Anglo club, it decided to invade Iraq. WMD, al-Qaida, democracy, freedom, children with roses, all were fabricated travesties to reach that end.
Bush and his Crusader-Neocon-Zionist coalition never ever dreamed to bring or bestow democracy to Iraq. (No offense is intended to peaceful Christians and Jews; they are my brothers and sisters!). This is one of the biggest lies sold to the world, and even swallowed by many of their critics.
You do not dream to bring democracy to a region while you STILL support Saudi kings, Pakistani dictators, Egyptian pharaohs, and Zionist fascists. You do not dream democracy by awing and shocking (an American way of saying terrorizing) the capital city of a country for days and by killing their children, raping and torturing their fighters against imperialist occupation. You do not dream democracy if you are using a pre-emptive war justified by lies to the factor of 666 to profit big oil and construction companies. You do not dream democracy if you are paying billions of dollars to mercenaries, the psychopaths and murderers of your empire, to kill on whim anyone they dislike in a land that they look like Martians. You do not dream democracy, if you are using one sect against another and deliberately planting the seed of civil war. You cannot be dreaming democracy if you have directly or indirectly caused the death of more than 700,000 Iraqis, who are not even counted by your "heroes," and still continue exporting there your soldiers, people who are professionally trained to destroy and kill.
