Bush = Napolean?


www.alternet.org

French Egypt and American Iraq can be considered bookends on the history of modern imperialism in the Middle East. The Bush administration's already failed version of the conquest of Iraq is, of course, on everyone's mind; while the French conquest of Egypt, now more than two centuries past, is all too little remembered, despite having been led by Napoleon Bonaparte, whose career has otherwise hardly languished in obscurity. There are many eerily familiar resonances between the two misadventures, not least among them that both began with supreme arrogance and ended as fiascoes. Above all, the leaders of both occupations employed the same basic political vocabulary and rhetorical flimflammery, invoking the spirit of liberty, security, and democracy while largely ignoring the substance of these concepts.

There are some quite eerie similarities here.

A very interesting perspective and a good read.

This is not breaking alternative news, (or any kind of news story), it is merely an editorial work aimed at smearing someone the writer isn't fond of.

Interesting! Not news? Smearing? ...maybe. I like to join in:

I just can't wait till he meets his Waterloo (Esfahan?)

When Napoleon was defeated they sent him to St.Helena.

It's far away, but not far enough for Bush. I suggest he'll be put on hard labour on the secret moon base.

...anyway I think it is news that someone starts to talk about the mental disorder of the man occupying the highest office on earth.

Here's a little food for thought on the psycopathic background of gunslinger Dubaya.

Maybe we shoild send him to Mars ...if there're bases there.
