prisoners of war .....

prisoners of war .....

After the warmongers who were dead wrong about Iraq in the first place and now have the gall to go on TV and blame the entire mess on Barack Obama. People who really should have crawled under a rock in shame and stayed there, Paul Wolfowitz, Lindsey Graham, and most notably, the wrongest of them all, John McCain, are making the rounds so much, "you'd have thought they won 'Dancing With the Stars,' " Stewart quips.

How wrong was McCain? Stewart has a clip of him saying, "there is no history of violent clashes between Sunnis and Shia" in the region, and so, McCain imagines that after the U.S. heroically restores democracy, the Iraqis will be able to live peacefully ever after. And if not, there is always the McCain solution for everything: more military intervention.

There is, of course, also the utter hypocrisy of blaming Obama for the mess Bush created, including blaming the "Kenyan, Muslim, terrorist, vegan" president for the troop withdrawal that was, in fact, mandated under the "Status of Forces" agreement that Bush signed after "planting those wonderful seeds of peace and democracy to blossom and grow like a flower" in Iraq.

Why is McCain still talking? Stewart wonders. We all do. Stewart's answer: "The John McCain military plan is the same as the John McCain media strategy - be everywhere, forever."

Jon Stewart Drops a Truth Bomb on John McCain and Other Warmongers

 

cheney is a psychopath...

 

When it comes to being wrong about Iraq, Dick Cheney has been in a class by himself. It was Cheney who said, “Simply stated, there is no doubt that Saddam Hussein now has weapons of mass destruction. There is no doubt he is amassing them to use against our friends, against our allies, and against us.”

It was Cheney who said: “it’s been pretty well confirmed” that 9/11 hijacker Mohammed Atta “did go to Prague and he did meet with a senior official of the Iraqi intelligence service.”

It was Cheney who said: “we do know, with absolute certainty, that [Saddam Hussein] is using his procurement system to acquire the equipment he needs in order to enrich uranium to build a nuclear weapon”

It was Cheney who said in 2005: “I think they’re in the last throes, if you will, of the insurgency.”

All those things, and many more, were false. There is not a single person in America — not Bill Kristol, not Paul Wolfowitz, not Don Rumsfeld, no pundit, not even President Bush himself — who has been more wrong and more shamelessly dishonest on the topic of Iraq than Dick Cheney.

And now, as the cascade of misery and death and chaos he did so much to unleash rages anew, Cheney has the unadulterated gall to come before the country and tell us that it’s all someone else’s fault, and if we would only listen to him then we could keep America safe forever. How dumb would we have to be to listen?

Gus: Psychopaths justify their aggressive deeds with more aggression and lies. Psychopaths do not understand reality. They lie with aplomb. Psychopaths never accept their actions can be wrong. Psychopaths ALWAYS blame someone else for their actions gone wrong. Cheney suffers from this affliction.

Unfortunately, the individuals of the human species tend to favour the psychopaths in leadership because psychopaths appear to be resolute and strong, having great reserves of excuses and hubris for aggression that they make up for our own inadequacies at dealing with some problems. Psychopath have the ability to say one thing when they mean another, without feeling such a conflict. They twist the meanings of words and ideas to suit the moment.

Psychopaths will fight on regardless of the wrongness of the fight, while claiming the high moral ground because that molehill is easily taken by the rabid faithful, rarely by reasonable people... Psychopaths walk over other people to get to the top. Psychopaths are always right in their own mind even if the facts or the information don't match their twisted beliefs. Psychopaths can be charming but can also be sneaky. Psychopath have a strong unshakeable faith in their own self. 

Psychopaths in leadership always end up killing someone. The case in point was the Iraq war in which Cheney starred like a beacon of false prophesy. People died. 

This could fit the bill for some people in the Australian government. People WILL DIE  from the blatantly idiotic views of this Australian government on global warming. This is a fact. The denialist position of the Abbott regime on this subject will only exacerbate the problem of global warming.  Amongst other problems, this means stronger storms, bushfires and flash floods. 

Psychopaths don't care much about science. This is why the Australian government has dismissed the scientists telling it of the dangerous future and replaced them with denialists to suit its "beliefs". Beliefs are the secure refuge of the psychopaths.

 

There is a psychopath in each and everyone of us... It's just a matter on how we control it and stop this trait ruling our actions. Some people can't. 

 

for the believers...
