A very unfunny clown

From the BBC "Bush vows to defeat Iraqi rebels Bush said the US was laying the foundation for peace in the world US President George W Bush has insisted that the "violent and ruthless" insurgency in Iraq will be defeated. After talks in Washington with Iraqi PM Ibrahim Jaafari, Mr Bush said the political progress that was being made in the country would lead to victory. He said US troops would eventually withdraw "with honour", but declined to set a timetable for withdrawal. His comments came after six US troops were killed in a suicide car bombing in the Iraqi city of Falluja. " Hello Mr Bush? Anyone THERE? That little war in Iraq was ill conceived despite YOUR great deception to initiate it. One day, hopefully, you will come to realise that most insurgents (you call violent and ruthless and terrorists, etc) is coming from ordinary Iraqi people as well as other sources (including foreigners)... People who in normal circumstances would carry on being nice and friendly people. But when their brothers (insert also child, parents, wife, old folks) have been fodderised (either killed or imprisoned without charge) by the US invasion whether it was liberating or not, the people won't just say thank you Mr Bush for killing (imprisoning) my brothers (insert also child, parents, wife, old folks)... As well it also creates a clash of beliefs of crusade proportion... In this equation, for every "terrorist " you kill. you create two new ones and in the mean time you lose one soldier per ten terrorist killed... as well as get 8 soldiers injured... There is more than 20 million people living in Iraq in which you are trying to keep under foot with say 150,000 troops... Of these 20 millions, if only one percent of the population is firmly against you, you are looking at 200,000 people who hate your guts enough to fight you and die in the process. In fact the amount of people who do not like you in Iraq say is about 60 per cent, Even if most of these are waiting in peace and silence for your troops to go like a bad smell, they do so in the refrained belief they can do what they will like to themselves, even have a civil war which, let's be honest here Saddam had under control with his butchering ways, but presently you are not doing much better... actually you are doing a lot worse that he was in terms of "repression". Now I do not like terrorist any more than you do and to some extend i wonder if you love them more than you should as these guys give you the "opportunity" to spruik more warmongering rhetoric and play little wars in the name of peace in the world... This is hypocritical. Would it be nice to show the world the same action from your own government as what Ms Rice is spruiking to the countries she is visiting: "Stop your violent ways."? The US muffed that one, You did, sir, you did... You cannot tell people to believe your words when your government does exactly the opposite and you cannot hide the fact that you invaded Iraq to "liberate" the oil and for no other reason... Of course you used smoke-screens like WMDs, then regime change, then "freedom" to glorify your secret intentions. Freedom is a word so much abused in the vocabulary of your administration, that it is unfortunately becoming more and more meaningless. You have abused your small destiny. You have forfeited the right to be the leader of the "Free World" by your ruthless tactics of torture using more semantics to hide it. You have knowingly let your friends abuse and corrupt a system in which the important part becomes making a profit the US way rather than do the right thing by other people's way. You have instructed your staff to give you filtered version of reality to suit your own selfish pursuits, including the relaxation of environmental laws for your mates to kill the environment with more abandon. This is not acceptable. Your leadership has been a bad joke on the whole world... It is time you quit the stage, like a stupid unfunny clown that you are (were? become?)...

Taken for ride

In the blog above I say Bush's leadership has been a bad joke on the whole world... It's time he quit the stage...

a timely reminder

Hi Gus. As Adolf Hitler said: ‘Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it & eventually they will believe it’.

A Timely Reminder ...

an act of resistance

The World Tribunal on Iraq (WTI), a grouping of NGOs, intellectuals and writers opposed to the war in Iraq, on Friday accused the United States of causing more deaths in Iraq than ousted president Saddam Hussein.

"With two wars and 13 years of criminal sanctions, the United States have been responsible for more deaths in Iraq than Saddam Hussein," Larry Everest, a journalist, told hundreds of anti-war activists gathered in Istanbul.

The Real War Criminals

A very sad fact

"...the United States have been responsible for more deaths in Iraq than Saddam Hussein" Unfortunately this had also been my only calculations from various very reliable original sources even back in 2003 when I made a cartoon called the "world series stats" like a baseball game stat sheet... I cried... And I was angry at this killing being done in my name... In all our names. There were other avenues to solve the Saddam problem... Difficult but not impossible... The stick , the carrot or something else? The US chose the stick...
