The Blame Game

I'll let the Intelligence speak for itself...

The National Intelligence Estimate was presented to President Bush yesterday, and it confirms everything that has been said on this site and others for the past two years.

EXCERPT:
A long-awaited National Intelligence Estimate on Iraq, presented to President Bush by the intelligence community yesterday, outlines an increasingly perilous situation in which the United States has little control and there is a strong possibility of further deterioration, according to sources familiar with the document

NIE Report

The 90 page NIE report is classified, so I can't link to it, but here is the full Iraq Study Group Report : Iraq Study Group Report

And although the President and his sycophants like McCain can blame the situation in Iraq on Gen. Casey and our generals, those of us who eat, drink and sleep the news out of Iraq know that the failure in Iraq stems DIRECTLY from the policies of the white house.

From the full blown corruption to Rumsfeld's disastrous "leadership" this President has failed.

From appointing Republican yes-men to positions where they had no experience or competence to the n0-bid contracts for Halliburton, Carlyle Group, and Bechtel, the blame for the failures of the morass in Iraq leads directly to the oval office. President Bush has failed the American people with this misadventure in Iraq. And that's that.

He cannot blame his generals, cut off from real troop deployment in the beginning, any more than he can blame the troops who implemented torture under Rumsfeld's airy "rules of interrogation".

But he will. He will continue to blame Everyone BUT the architects of the Iraq Invasion; architects who built a building that has collapsed in on itself.

It's not My fault- For telling you the truth. It's not even your fault, for blindly supporting what you believed was a good idea, unknowing that the President has lied to you.

It is partly Congress' fault for not stopping it. And if this Congress fails to stop Iraq, part Deux from occurring, then it will be time to march on the Washington D.C. and bring this country to a standstill.

But the real blame lies in all the greedy politicians, who, pockets lined with Halliburton and Bechtel cash- implemented Iraq policy from a standpoint of how much money they stood to make AND NOT by what could have possibly gotten the job done.

There's your failure, at its source.

No need to panic, man. Strategic withdrawal. Pull out, leave Halliburton and Bechtel employees at the mercy of the Iraqi people who they are (chuckle chuckle) "helping" soooo much. Congress can stop all spending on the permanent bases and the multibillion dollar "embassy" immediately. All of those funds can be used to re-equip our troops with armor and supplies as they redeploy into Afghanistan.

We move the full Iraqi contingent into Afghanistan. Secure that area. Destroy all poppy fields. Institute martial law, create a system of English-speaking schools where all children have to attend. We outlaw all formal religion. No military training for Afghanis. No weapons allowed to Afghanis, period. Control the entire oil supply and all trade routes. With such a massive (per capita compared to Iraq) American presence, there should be a helluva lot less trouble controlling Afghanistan.

Instead of pumping money into the military industrial complex, we will institute a capitalist-based economy with local Afghanis hired to do 90% of the labor and work, and pay fair wages. Which is completely do-able, since we won't be funneling millions of dollars to dummy contractors who don't do anything. We will institute U.S. controlled building projects to create roads and such to improve travel and shipping within the country. (ala Roosevelt's New Deal)

We will then implement a socialist style infrastructure of healthcare, elderly care, and childcare will be set up for all working Afghanis. All they need to do to qualify is provide their US govt supplied workcard and proof of current employment (last pay stub).

Lastly, as a reward for their diligence, we will build give every hut free access to basic american cable. (minus any News channels whatsoever).

And we will make it the 51st state and rename it- Cavemanistan. It will be symbolic only, as the U.S. military will retain full control over all governmental policy.

Is Viagra suggesting we need inexpensive drugs to survive this WH?

I don't hear much anymore about the munitions dump the UN had secured, that our rush to Bagdhad skipped past without securing, that's the source of the IED mix we do hear so much about.
Thanks, Rummy.
But then, no heads rolled after the worst security-related disater in US history, so why be surprised?

And it's only cost one million for every dead Iraqi. So far.

"I will be voting to give the President of the United States the authority to use force — if necessary — to disarm Saddam Hussein because I believe that a deadly arsenal of weapons of mass destruction in his hands is a real and grave threat to our security."
Sen. John F. Kerry (D, MA), Oct. 9, 2002.

woo hooo dont ya love it
another one
We have known for many years that Saddam Hussein is seing and developing weapons of mass destruction."
Sen. Ted Kennedy (D, MA), Sept. 27, 2002.
BUAHAHAHAHAHAHHA
more?
"He will use those weapons of mass destruction again, as he has ten times since 1983."
Sandy Berger, Clinton National Security Adviser, Feb, 18, 1998

on and on..hey where fade?..is he frozen somewhere in Texas because of Global warming?,,BUAAHAHAHAHA

Fuck the PAST, Cavey. You are apparently stuck there and don't care how many US troops die just so your oil buddies can make cold hard cash.

You are making fun of Kerry, but YOU Still Think Saddam has WMD, you dumbshit! WTF is your point? That Kerry was WRONG Then? If that's it, then it means he's right now! You are such a two-faced, hypocritical bastard. You are trying to make Democrats look bad by repeating these comments- BUT These Are ALL repub talking points that were proven to be lies!

Guys like me were Right. You, not so much. In fact your have been wrong about pretty much every damn thing. Now- On Global Warming, your ignorant ass takes the side of Corporations over Scientists.

Last week's news again confirmed that not only do the world's scientists understand that the 5 billion people in the world and the resulting pollution is having an adverse effect on the environment (Duh) and that not only have they been trying to tell us this, but Government agencies and Big Oil has been trying to BRIBE the scientists. Unsuccessfully. Thank God that some people aren't as bought and sold as easily as you.

You will figure it out, sooner or later. Weather Extremes will be occurring more and more as the icecaps melt. The next tragedy to occur to America? Well, with Bush dismantling the EPA the way he did FEMA, it is destined to be some corporate non-safety regulated disaster. He is firing all the good people and appointing people that have no experience and no desire to actually PROTECT the American people. They are just their to help his buddies get rich faster. Fucking greedy cretins.

The Cigarette industry spent billions fighting the news that cigs caused Cancer. But in the end, even morons like you had to finally accept the news. That's what Global Warming is like. The ONLY people that can't see that pollution hurts the environment are fucking whacked out crackpots.

Get it?
