It has finally dawned on me what is happening in Iraq. On March 18, 2003, the American government with the full and collaborative concurrence of the
UK’s PM Tony Blair plus other “collation of the willing,” launched an unprovoked attack on a small country 6,000 miles distant from Washington
3,000 miles from London. The illegal war began with our own description of a second sneak attack - reminiscent of first at Pearl Harbor - which was
denominated by our Great Leader as a “decapitation strike!” Golly what a gruesome way to think about things in general. It is no wonder torture
means nothing to that “think tank.” Nor collateral damage. The dismissive term we apply to all those 1000s of Iraqi non-combatants who have died
when our bombs, rockets and artillery shells go awry. Perhaps 50% of our shots miss the intended target, but 100% of those missiles of death hit some
target. Hey, we lost 2,700 dead in the Nine Eleven Event. That gave us the “right” to kill thousands around the world!
By May Day, May 1 in America, our Great Leader appeared in a custom tailored AF flight suit -$3,000? - dismounting from a 2 place Navy plane on the
flight deck of the USS Abraham Lincoln - I’m sorry Mr Lincoln - under a sign ordered by Karl Rove, proclaiming “Mission Accomplished!”
The Great Leader permitted speculation by newscasters first that he, the one-time Air National Guard pilot, had landed the plane on the carrier’s
deck.Sensing that was impossible, for an “amateur” pilot, he then left undefiled the story that he had held the stick on the flight in. Navy
pilots got angry and said, “Ain’t no AWOL Air Guard ‘106' jock can land a real airplane on an aircraft carrier! Not in this life!”
Crushing the paper tiger Army of Saddam Hussein proved to be no more trouble that we had doing it in the First Gulf War. America’s own Gang of Four
- Bush43, VP Cheney, the Oberfuhrer Herr Rumsfeld and the Birmingham Songbird Condo Rice - told our troops the Iraqi would welcome us with a flower
strewn parade through the second or third oldest city on the planet, Baghdad. Reminiscent of our Liberation of Paris in 1944.
Then the resistance began. At first we did not know what was happening. Then our own soldiers and marines started getting KIA. As of today, we have
3.025 KIA and I don’t know how many Brits have died in this fiasco.
But what gives me encouragement is the strength and the courage shown by ordinary Iraqis. 34,000 were killed in 2006, according to the UN. But only
12,000 according the puppet government wearing under the oil driven constitution we wrote for them. Lackey and collaborators form the current
governing body in Iraq. We tried to do this in Vietnam, but they would not stand for it. We are trying to again install a puppet regime in Iraq -
Brits did that in the 1920s - but the Iraqis are not gong to stand for it again. This is their golden opportunity to be a free people, free from
outside domination, whether it be from Washington, London, Tehran aor Damascus.
Every day I see suicide bombers who have killed dozens, and I then see every Iraqi around risking his life to help the dead and injured. I see this
over and over. I see more and more policemen signing up, even though many are killed every week. I see Iraqi army people trying to compress a
generation of soldiering into a few months training. Those who survive are great soldiers. All over Iraq, we see and hear of ordinary Iraqi who are
heroic every day. Then we go into the Green Zone and find the scale civic leeches, the same rich bankers and contractors, stealing so much money they
will have to use tractor-trailers to haul it out to Switzerland. The Bush43 government admits we are spending $2 billion a week in Iraq. Can you
figure that? How can anyone spend $2 billion a week there? I mean honestly.
So, I say to every Iraqi - Stick to your guns. Someday you can be like the Vietnamese and you too, can be FREE! As they like to say in New Hampshire,
“Live Free or Die!”
