The GOP has come to Iraq for the SPICE
Edited on Tue Dec-16-03 03:27 PM by opihimoimoi
Who will conquer the Worm, ride it??

Who will bring water to the Dunes?

Who will control the Spice??

Who will the GOP use to subdue the opposition?

How many will die to keep the GOP in power in the Middle East?

When will the GOP leave?

After all, if we look back, it was the GOP who got in bed with the Saudis.

It was the GOP/Saudi who thought of protection for the Spice when Saddam first went agression in Desert Storm 1. Result 1 very large airbase in Saudi.

This pissed off a whole contingent of Saudis who hate the GOP for their devious ways.

They warned us, Get the bleep out.

Then came a whole slew of warnings/attacks to emphasize their seriousness.

Did the GOP listen? NO

Now that we have Iraq under control? We quietly leave Saudi as we should have in the first place. we set up a new base in Quatar and soon in Iraq too.

The GOP is persistent for the SPICE, they jus don listen. Now they want to be a presence in Iraq as they feel they have license to do so by virtue of taking out Saddam, the guy who brought much pain/suffering/war to this World. It was he that fucked up the whole thing. The GOP is compounding it by using him as a scapegoat.

The GOP is not for a just Gov't, they are for a controlled Gov't; with them pulling the strings. Oleo pa i ae, opala oleo.

Malamalama O Ke Kai

2. Right on!
Bush = The Beast Rabban (stupid, vicious)
Cheney = The Baron Harkonnen (grotesque sicko)
B. Frist = Feyd Rautha (slimy, evil protege)
Wolfowitz = Pieter de Vries (twisted mentat)
DeLay = semuta-addicted captain of palace guards

8. Intersting Analogies
I did a college paper on Dune and real world analogies.

Baron Harkonen was Sovient Union.

The Guild was the Oil and Automobile Companies.

America was the Empire.

England was House Atredies.

Oil, of course, was spice.

Fremen were the nomadic Arabs.

Dune, the planet, was the Middle East.

Bene Gesserit (sp) was all the rich religions which originated in that region.

21. Dean is starting to look like Liet Kynes, Imperial Planetologist...
the covert leader of the Fremen who gets caught and
staked out in the desert.

He's got too much common sense and too little spaciness
to be Paul Atriedes.

The imperial intelligence services have been working
over time to get one of Dean's - I mean Liet's -
followers to sell him out. Odds of a sell out are
looking about 30 per cent right now.

22. I have to suspect the same of Gores camp 4 years ago.
Strange how history repeats.

Dean may not be a Smashed Bean yet.

As the Head Bean he is challenged to build far more than a hill.

Can the Head Bean Do it?

Hell Yes he can. He has the gift. Very few come this way bearing the quality and the intensity Dean possesses. From this assessment, the House of Astredes knows Dean can also ride the Worm, this Dean can Lead/therfore lurks the danger of losing the Spice. What the House doesn't realize, the Dean needs not the Spice, he values Blue water much higher. The Spice is the way to Blue Water, sustained living conditions for long periods of time. He knows how to build the system to Blue but the House rejects in favor of Spice and Only Spice. The House misuse the Spice and are arrogant about it.

Come, learn more of the Spice in Spiceology 248.8

16. Good Gawd! Where'd you get that picture??
The victim looks like he's been run over by a rabid humvee and trampled by cheering (?) Iraqis. This is Saddam????

Does he have strep throat, or something? What do they expect to find in his MOUTH?? WMD's?? Bush's Turkey?

Holy Moly...what have we done!? There will be hell to pay for our troops in Iraq. No wonder the Arab world is so pissed about this.

9. Does that mean that Halliburton=The Guild?
Then again, I've always thought that Cheney had that sort of protoplasmic, malformed aura of a Steersman hooked through the bag on the spice!
