True to form, Nancy Pelosi wasted no time hopping a flight to India in time to be seen showing support for the Dalai Lama and the downtrodden people of Tibet. And that does make some sense because its a fact that Tibet is getting screwed by China’s policy of Sinification. So, jolly good, Nancy! You really showed moral fortitude and courage by donning an Indian costume and showing your support for Tibet and demanding a UN investigation of the recent atrocities.
What troubles me is this: over a million Iraqis are dead and millions more are refugees due to George Bush’s lawless invasion and occupation of Iraq, now moving into its 6th year. The war was sold to the American people by the Bush regime, which lied non-stop to make the public believe that Saddam Hussein posed an imminent threat to their physical safety. We were told endlessly by Bush, Rice, Rumsfeld and Cheney with a good deal of help from Fox and the other mainstream media moutpieces that Saddam had nuclear devices, a huge arsenal of WMD’s and that unless we acted right away, we might all get toasted by Iraqi terrorists.
And Nancy knows all this very well, knows that it was always about the oil and that the war is a moral, economic and political disaster and that it is fundamentally criminal in conception.
And now, long after it is clear to most 10-year olds that the Bush administration lied about the reasons for the war and that it was always simply about controlling Middle East oil fields to quench the thirst of a US military empire with over 700 bases on the planet---and when it is more than clear that Bush and Co have shredded our constitution, abused executive powers and used every dirty trick in the book to promote the interests of “the base”---Nancy Pelosi still maintains her position that “impeachment is off the table.”
So why haven’t we seen Nancy in Iraq photo-op-ing with the downtrodden of Iraq and calling for a UN investigation of the atrocities as she did for the recent incidents in Tibet? What’s up with that Nancy?
The Democratic Congress that Nancy Pelosi allegedly leads was elected to put a stop to this immoral war. Instead they have been getting wrist fatigue rubber-stamping all the Bush administration's repressive legislation and of course the funding bills to keep Iraq burning.
Our Democracy is virtually defunct, the economy is in recession while the Fed bails out the predatory banking system that caused the current financial crisis, we are still spending $12 Billion per month on a failed war that was left the Iraqi nation and its hopes utterly shattered---and Nancy suddenly decides its time to take a strong moral stand against the use of naked power to achieve political objectives....by China, in Tibet.
Well, Nancy, I agree with the concept. However its appallingly hypocritical to be doing this for the Tibetan sideshow when the main event and its real causes are still going largely unreported by a mainstream media that is the most-censored in US history.
It seems Nancy that you have lost the plot. You are a disappointment to us all and you deserve to get trounced in the next election. Your crony-fed “business as usual” style of politics is no longer in vogue. You have one chance to redeem yourself: start calling for the impeachment of Cheney and Bush and demand that the public visibly show their support for impeachment and don’t stop until these criminals are behind bars and our Democracy is restored.
Failing that, Nancy, you will have failed us all and will go down in history as one of America’s biggest disappointments. Put it back on the table Nancy...I can’t wait to see the photo-op with you and Wexler...you could wear a Revolutionary War outfit....
