Breaking News ...... Iraq sliding into Civil War ....
..... and according to members of Commandeer Cuckoo Bananas'
administration it is Syria's fault. Gee, for a little bit I though it was
the unneeded war in a country that was not a threat and had nothing
to do w/ 9-11.

How dare the Syrians have a border w/ Iraq.

How long are these mother F*****s going to to spread bull shit
on toast and tell the world to eat up because, "It is country style
apple butter."

1. Gee, I thought Cuckoobananas' SecDef Skelator had planned for Syria.

I guess SecDef Skelator is just a hypercaffeinated idiot with a bad suit and cousin haircut after all.

It's perpetual amateur hour in the White House, the House speaker's office, and the Sen. Majority Leader's office. Those fools are justs plain fuck-ups.

2. How long? As long as the sheeple keeping swallowing
So far America hasn't gotten really tired of sending poor people to fight rich people's wars.

Not yet anyway.

3. Guess it had nothing to do with the fact
that Great Britain made up Iraq to begin with and that everyone said that once Saddam was removed that the whole country would blow.

Why do you think that Turkey has kept clear of this war and refused us air fields. They are planning to grab the oil in the north.

All anyone had to do was read what all those in the know were saying before we ever went in there. It isn't like this wasn't predicted.

But, I guess we need an excuse to bomb Syria. What's a few 100,000 more innocent lives?

7. They're not innocent lives. They're TERRA-ISTS!
Innocent lives would cost Bushco politically, thus, they're all bad guys.

4. Who here - most of whom have never held a national security-related
position - predicted this? But not calling it Syria's fault?

Me!
And, I'm sure most of you, too.

10. Clark,
In Feb of '03 I heard an ex CIA station chief from the mid east say:
1. Yes our troops can be in Baghdad within days.
2. That is when the trouble will start
3. This war is not like the first gulf war because it will be
held on their soil and we will be seen as invaders.
4. Iraq as a country was drawn on a map in 1920 by the Brits
5. Their are 103 different factions there.
6. Governing a post Saddam Iraq will be very difficult.
7. Unless law, order, water, food, jobs, and some legal sovereignty
for the native populations are quickly restored it will be a mess.

That was a republican with real intel background and he was just
blown off .... an admin. person said he was griping because he
was out of the loop.

:grr:

5. sure not breaking news...
all that is happening there now is a part of the ongoing civil war..aggravated and re wrapped into the new box that it is today..thanks to bush-co! Iraq was the target for the most likely country to invade and work from to control the whole middle east..and the last of the worlds oil...it was chosen for its convenient location in the middle of all of the countries that still have the most oil..Iran, Saudi, Syria, etc...and the fact that 9/11 happened and Iraq conveniently had this nasty kind of guy as ruler..just made it easier to accomplish. Civil war was there before we invaded...continued since..and will go on...we don't really care..helping the people of Iraq has nothing to do with it at all.

6. A. As long as we have a "kiss up to Dubya, kick down Democrats" media.
In other words, not any time soon.

Lying the nation into an ill-advised war that makes us less safe is okay by them. Lying under oath about a blow job, however, is an impeachable offense and cause for high dudgeon, 24/7 cable news coverage.

12. Syria ... keep a careful eye on the propaganda ...
many of us have speculated on the date the US will attack Iran ...

it just might happen AFTER we attack Syria ... keep a close eye on the propaganda ... this kind of "the Syrians did this and the Syrians did that" is usually a precursor to an attack ...
