Have not posted in awhile so hi to all and to you Kidfinger. In my observance of the posts it struck me sadly that the bigger picture of the nasty
game we call American politics has been missed - that being the mere fact of an agenda whereof seekerof pointed out, is many. Many that is, personal
agendas all working and struggling under a common goal, power. Whether money (oil), security (Israel), redemption (George W.), the greater issues lie
within the men who have power and are able to wield that power according to their deep desires.
Under the banner and guise of red, white, and blue - freedom - I see a 21 year old kid with no leg, having it blown off to an IED, and the daily
struggle he must SERVE for the rest of his life trying to cope with and understand why he gave the sacrifice of his body. And though his superiors,
who have lost nothing thus far, say well done hero, he struggles to believe "am I a hero? am I a hero for stepping on a mine?" As the youth
disappears and the problems of life do not, and the hard core truth of existence and the lies and deceit of men drum in like 7.62 rounds, one can
only find himself bitter, perplexed, and grieving; fighting against that very truth of freedom spat out to the masses by the politicians who are
catered to as fat kings never wondering how they shall pay next weeks bills by the money that is not in the account today.
It takes very little brain power for those who are interested to find out what the war in Iraq was all about. I shall sum it up for you to argue
about. First off lets talk about commodities. Oil is a commodity and many of you are wondering in your greedy little hearts why our oil prices are not
going down since we now have the contracts for the second largest oil producing nation on the planet. I have one sentence for you: Sell short next
year. The primary reason oil is, high, is not becasue of heating oil, or BS Venezuela interior issues or the like. It is simply Muslim OPEC getting
what they can before oil is no longer an economic stability issue. OPEC understands that America is the biggest CUSTOMER of Iraq oil and so will be
Europe and Japan. OPEC is very disturbed to see forecasts of 30% losses over the next ten years and the European Union is very disturbed to see that
they are now unable to pressure Japan to join the EU to put pressure on the dollar merging with the Euro.
There are very many issues involved that have been issues since the 70's. However, you certainly cannot educate the average American drone on complex
issues of economics nor on the more complex issues of controlling a religion that is perceived (and is) a threat. Do you really believe that the
United States Senate was unaware of the faulty evidence of WMD's or on the fact that Iraq has been coveted for their oil since the 40's. Why do you
think Britain never wavered in joining with the mighty U.S. for invasion? Oh how the ignorant of history err. Do you believe it was to keep our
precious intelligence sharing that we have enjoyed since WWII? Or to hedge commodities and technology?
It was a win-win war for those in the Middle east. A semi-containable front where war can be waged against a hostile religion, where the future of oil
commodities can be waged against our current asskissing agendas with OPEC and those with black blood (Saudi Arabia). Do you think that it does not
pain George Sr. to kiss foreign buttocks?
Beyond oil we have the zealots (Perle, Wolfowitz) of security. Men who have spent their careers as the voice of America and Israel. As I watched
Perle speak the other night on the foolishness of leaving Iraq to defend themselves I could only laugh to think he gave any bit of a damn for those
people. It's his arse on the line, his reputation, as the think tank who maneuvered America into war for HIS agenda not the young boys who bleed.
Perle's nick name by the way is the Prince of Darkness and if one wishes to delve into the history of such men you will see why he is called such.
His reason to stay in Iraq has nothing to do with keeping marines from dieing in vain.
You also need to understand that Iraq is already won. There is no need for military bases long term as the Iraqi's can run their own country. As long
as no one EVER screws with our (Iraqi) oil wells there will be no reason to have a military intervention in the guise of freedon or stopping
insurgency. The monumental elections we see taking place on Sunday is one of the most ridiculous clones of democracy in history. Our history will
certainly warp the facts of this MONUMENTAL occassion. Granted those who vote in Iraq do not even know who the candidates are but hell as long as they
can vote thats progress. The most amazing and disturbing fact is that Americans as a whole are completley ignorant of what is going on and proves how
not only demoralized and brain washed we are as a nation but on how severley uneducated Americans are in anything to do with government, culture, or
The question that Ted Koppel should be asking is not when will our troops be pulled out, but what compensation will be given for my son or daughter
who bleeds for your agenda? Can our sons and daughters, husbands and wives who lose their lives receive muti-million dollar compensation so that their
family members may advertise and buy a seat on congress? Thats a little harsh as we cannot buy a seat in congress nor can we buy our way into the
white house. Only the most educated and sought after professional's with track records of success can enter such positions, or if you prefer be voted
into office right? It's America anyone can be president right? Were not a country rulled by a king, were a democracy who spreads freedom aren't we?
When you wake up tommorrow and go to work and come home to your kids make sure you educate them as to the current times of your government or this
freedom loving nation will suck the life out of them faster than playstation II. Lies are a strategy and a means to deceive. It's unfortunate that
the very leader of this nation do not understnad the difference. It looks like communist detente has permeated our society after all. To deny
ignorance you must first discover what it is you are ignorant of.
