Map For America
By W. O. Coach
The road map for America, also known as Operation American
Liberation, is about to become a reality. For the past two
plus years, or ever since the United States of America abandoned
democracy in favor of an installed puppet dictator, America
has become a clear and present danger to itself, and the rest
of the world for that matter.
Exaggeration? Put aside all the abandoned treaties, spy
plane fiasco, submarine disaster, failed Argentinean coup,
9/11 cover-up, mess in Afghanistan et al - let's just focus
on Iraq for a few paragraphs. The United States of America
pre-emptively attacked a third world country of less than
30 million people which had no chance of defending itself.
The reason we were given was weapons of mass destruction and
their immediate threat to the US.
Colin Powell, perhaps the most respected official of those
White House neo-con ideologues, was caught lying to the UN
Security Council with his "smoking gun" plagiarized essay
from a college student and clumsily forged documents suggesting
Niger had sold Iraq nuclear fission rods.
Niger? Niger has nuclear technology? Forget the exposed
forgery, how dumb are we to accept the story that Niger is
suddenly a nuclear power exporter? Niger, with two-thirds
of its landlocked, desert country uninhabitable, can't even
grow enough food to feed its own citizens. The lesson here
is Colin Powell is either misinformed, or lied intentionally
to gain support for the invasion of Iraq. As the most respected
official working for the White House, he told a couple of
whoppers that even the cheerleading US media couldn't ignore.
But as we know, this didn't work, and almost to a nation,
the world rejected the attack on Iraq. Mr. Bush went from,
"we're going for a second resolution to make other countries
show their cards," to "fuck the resolution, I'm taking out
Then, after the failed diplomacy, we got the "coalition
of the willing."
Who's kidding who here?
Except for Britain, Spain and Australia, I've never heard
of any of these other countries. Irethia? I know Iceland doesn't
even have a military, so what was the point there? Coalition
of the willing means willing to take a cash bribe and allow
your name to go on the list. Turkey, to their credit, turned
down billions. And for those countries that refused to sign
on, the vast majority, they were threatened with punishment
by economic sanctions or whatever. What a wonderful new era
of diplomacy by the Bush administration. Disagree with us
and we're gonna hurt ya, Texas style.
So, here we are, in full control of Iraq's oil wells, but
not the already looted nuclear facilities because Mr. Rumsfeld
was focused on things that go "ka-ching," rather than things
that go "ka-boom." I don't know about you, but I hardly get
a warm, cuddly feeling from the thought that there's thousands
of terrorists out there with dirty bomb capabilities who have
been trained their whole lives to believe they're better off
dead if they martyr themselves by killing infidel Americans.
No one I know is going to suggest Saddam Hussein was a nice
guy, but at least the Iraqis had water, electricity and civil
order under his brutal rule. We've bombed them back into the
stone age, and killed gawd knows how many thousands of innocent
civilians in the name of collateral damage by smart bombs
that didn't have quite the IQs advertised. I assure you, this
has not exactly endeared us to the Arab world who feel betrayed,
and that the whole exercise was only about occupying them
while stealing their oil after all.
But let's be honest. If, say, Iran was the world's only
super power and we were the size of Iraq, and Iran decided
to attack us because we had WMD, how would you feel? These
Islamic fundamentalists are as strange to us in their culture
as we are to them. They could never change our way of thinking
anymore than we can change theirs. And while we're here, what
exactly is the definition of a WMD? A cluster bomb? A MOAB?
How many lives do you have to take out before a weapon is
considered a WMD? We are the only country in history to use
nuclear weapons against a live target, and we did it twice.
Iran, Iraq and North Korea, the axis of evil, are not trying
to change us, we're trying to change them. We're the country
out of control using military force to try and change thousands
of years of culture to our own world view image. We're the
clear and present danger to world peace and somebody needs
to stop us.
Is there an army out there strong enough to straighten us
out? You betcha.
The American voters.
Note: the above solution to Operation American Liberation
is based on the premise that Katherine Harris will not be
in charge of election results and that touch screen voting
machines will have a verifiable paper trail.
