Too Little, Too Late

First, since the only thing that has been constructed in Iraq on a permanent basis are fourteen permanent military bases and an "American Embassy" the size of The Vatican and of a scope of grandeur, fortification, and defensibility that would have been envied by the glory-loving sheiks of old, it appears that withdrawal in any fashion at any time has been ruled out. This glorious city has not been built for the purpose of leaving the area, no matter how badly beaten and raggedy-assed the once-proud American Eagle may become. This is not about patriotism or even about democracy. It is about raw power and world control and nothing less.

Please note that work is rapidly being completed on the Guantanamo Bay complex of "Court Houses" and their support facilities offshore. Ostensibly, this location is to exempt the administrators of "justice" who practice there from the limitations of the American Constitution, despite the fact that few of the prisoners who have been held there for years of agony and brutality will ever be tried there. (As an aside, they have mis-read the Constitution which states that the legal caveats apply "anywhere in the jurisdiction of the United States.". As a property which is owned, operated, and administered by the government of the United States, even a casual reader would assume that it is within the jurisdiction of American law, but nobody has seen fit to challenge the opinions of the White House legal "scholars".) Nonetheless, the "court complex" will be completed and the hierarchy will gather there with all the comforts of home to watch the pronouncement and performance of punishment upon the rebellious malcontentss who refuse to bow to total control.

Throughout the United States, multi-national contractors are hard at work on "relocation camps" to be used in case of "national emergency" so that large numbers of people may be confined there for long periods of time. A "shadow government" has been formed outside the Washington area to be safe from any possible "invasion", peopled by hand-picked official who are poised to take control of all governmental functions if and when the legitimately-elected Representatives of The People should be rendered incapable of functioning. It is now being planned that increased military might may be obtained by the "selling" of American citizenship to foreign nationals who would have no compunctions against arresting and interning ordinary Americans, probably with no knowledge even that such actions should be illegal. Executive Orders and Justice Department opinions have prepared the access to power to allow the arrest of lawfully-elected officials as well as civilian resisters, "deport", try, convict, and execute as many as necessary to discourage any further resistance by the hoi polloi, and continue on track to become, as they feel they are entitled, "the Rulers of the Universe."

Investigations? Impeachment? It does not matter at this late stage. Either is too slow and ponderous. Nothing short of a secret grand jury indictment for treason and the immediate arrest of the highest officials in the Executive, State, and Justice branches now in office will be able to save our United States, restore it to its former status as a beacon of freedom in a troubled world and save all our sorry asses. Throughout this whole takeover of the United States, from the initial electoral blitzkreig through the unilateral initiation of two separate wars, the shredding of the civil rights that have been granted by the Constitution, the draining of the Treasury through no-bid contracts with hand-picked multi-national corporations, and the assumption of absolute power of the Executive, the Neo-Con cabal have been two jumps ahead of those in Congress who might attempt to bring it under control. By the time Congress determines that there us a "problem", it is already too late to do anything about it and, meanwhile, the next step in the coup d'etat has been solidified and another initiated.
