After Phil Donahue, Keith Olberman....why now?

Why now? Because people forget and some people were too young to understand! Sure Hubris missed some golden points that would have put it all in better perspective like going back to the foundation how Iraq was formed in the beginning, how the US gave chemical weapons to and aided Iraq during the Iran/Iraq wars, how Saddam invaded Kuwait with a wink and nod from the USA, how the claims of slant drilling by Kuwait into Iraq oil fields was affirmed and then covered over, how the incubator stories were proved to be lies, how Saddam's threats to deal in other than US currency only incensed the PNAC zeal for his blood, how for weeks prior to USA invasion of Iraq Saddam's messages for negotiating regime change were ignored by the Bushites and Bush claimed that there would be no negotiations and how the media just let it all drop with a silent thud.....but I digress.

It's important to revisit this recent history so that hopefully people will be less likely to fall for the bullshit that is coming next about Iran, NK, and Syria. So that hopefully there will be some in the media who will truly inform the people with accurate and honest journalistic researched information. So that many more in Congress will have the guts of a Barbara Lee to say no to a President being led madly insane men and women who don't mind using our children as economic-war-mongering fodder. So that hopefully courageous, thoughtful President might flush out the evil lurking in our intelligence and military shadow governments and stand up to the insanity of more and more war. THAT'S WHY NOW!!

2. To cover EVERYTHING would take more than an hour.

It would probably take ten hours. So Hubris had to cut to the chase.

4. Actually, no matter how often this is shown it will remind people of the GOP hubris.

Sure some Dems voted for it to keep from being labeled "unpatriotic" "soft on terrorism" "anti-American" which the RW and their willing media co-sum were doing every day so viciously on shows like FOX "News" and Rush and Beck.
