10. It MAY sink bush....but NOT by the Americans OR the r/w press...
The OPEC countries, infuriated, may be what sinks bush because of this. The vast majority of OPEC is Arab. If you think they're going to stand for this type of humiliation by what they perceive to be "bush's military", think again.

Culturally, this is SO much bigger in the Muslim world -- SO much more unacceptable, than we, in the sex-focused west, would ever dream of.

If OPEC switches to the Euro (or the new Muslim gold-backed currency), not only is Bush going down, but they'll take down the American economy with him.

The press in this country won't allow this to take bush down, but they can't do shit about OPEC.

These atrocities, to much of the Muslim world, IS America, and Americans. The pressure from their people will require that they bring bush down, or face the possibilities of massive unrest. I'd say it will start coming to a head by the end of June to the first of August, in the Muslim countries. What we'll see between now and then will be a groundswell, made more dangerous because their own government leaders will try to keep a lid on it, which will only create more unrest.
