The truth finally comes out: Iran halted its nuclear weapons development in 2003. Flash! The truth just got a little 'truer'. Suddenly, we go from an emergency-lead-up-to-bombing-Iran footing to an "it-was-all-just-a-false-alarm" (except maybe they might still do it, so we need to be ready to bomb them anyway) footing.
Is it just me, or has this gone from already alarming now to an emergency need to remove Mr. Bush et al from office ASAP?
This kind of display of malfeasance, disguised as another routine intelligence gathering mistake, makes one cringe and wonder what kind of a man this is that we have at the helm with his itchy trigger finger on the nuclear button, who, in his psychosis seems to be a hair's breath away from creating minimally a "national terrorism emergency" and possibly World War III? A lot of us keep wondering when he will declare himself generalissimo and dictator for as long as he shall deem necessary?
This morning I saw the "President"'s news conference in which the question was asked 'how can the US have any credibility left after the recent saber rattling, in light of this new evidence of no weapons program?" Mr. Bush had the effrontery to, with a straight face, claim that it was HIS reforms of the intelligence community which made the CIA finally able to tell the truth and come clean with this knowledge and give the American public its 'right to know'.
I couldn't believe it. I thought "my God what a lying, floor-flushing sack of stuff this guy is. Just a few days ago he was on his hobby horse bucking up and down just screaming like a chimp readying itself for a raiding party, calling, screaming for Iran to be threatened with bombing, to be sanctioned...oh it was a BIG FAT emergency just two weeks ago...but now, he says " good work fellas...ya wuz able to tell we didn't have no emergency 'cuz I reformed you and made you able to finally pony up the truth about this here lack of emergency...yup, yup"
How stupid does he think the public is? I guess pretty stupid. After all, we elected him TWICE, knowing he was a lying, prevaricating, sociopathic, blameshifing, jingoist war-mongering piece of work...51 percent of our moronic population re-elected this man.Can you imagine? RE means TWICE. Well, first time he was appointed by the Supreme Court. But in any case, I guess Mr. Bush is spending his political capital and feels authorized to insult our communal intelligence, such as it is, whatever is left among the American public.
The only slightly comforting fact is that almost half of us DIDN'T vote for this chimpanzee. But that is scant comfort, a broken country and a few trillion dollars in debt later. And the damage just keeps on piling up, seeing we will all of us, guilty or not, be paying forever the national debt and paying for the harm this liar is doing on all fronts to our economy, our country, our people, our reputation (what's left of it) and our ability to do anything but evil in the world. When a true emergency comes along, nobody in the international community will believe us anymore.
