Last week, America was yet again treated to the ideological ravings of a President still in denial about the magnitude of the foreign policy blunder of Iraq. The central theme, yet again, was to engender fear and paranoia in the American people, with his deranged insistence that the global war on terror is essential to "our safety at home." 9/11 was yet again falsely invoked as the reason for sending over 3,000 brave men and women to their deaths in the shifting-sands of Iraq, and the butchery of over 40,000 Iraqi women and children innocent victims of both our dictator's faith-based foreign policy, and the unquenchable, immoral thirst of big-oil and war profiteers to feather their nests with green-backs and the crushed corpses of innocents. Bereft of his usually over-confident Texas swagger, it was apparent that even he now senses the mendacity and futility of his own words. Like all those who engage in sustained lies and deception, what may appear as a poorly crafted speech that contradicts his previous statements is simply the inability of his throng of speech writers to keep track of the vast ocean of lies and deception upon which he has based his demagoguery. Republican senator Chuck Hagel observed that Bush's case for "the surge" was based more on "arrogant self-delusion" than the reality of the Iraq quagmire perhaps more of a "State of Delusion" than a "State of the Union."
