Getting back to the subject at hand.. USA vs. the World.. Guess what? According to statements made by now State Department diva Condoleeza Rice, the
War on Terror
is now passe. We are moving boldly into phase 2, the new and improved War on TYRANNY!
How bout that? It's about
controlling all oil chokepoints around the world. Funny how these nations that we are describing as possible targets for intervention
of their eeeVil rulers, about 12 or so, just
happen to be on Cheney's big OIL map.
What a cowinkydink!
Here's the problem. Our military is encircling Russia and China in our quest to control all oil transport routes and future fields of exploration. We
are being friendly to those regimes willing to cede to our demands - irregardless of how tyrannical they
are - highlighting the sheer hypocrisy
of it all - and behaving in a very threatening manner towards the others.
BushCo. has done everything in its power to cause the ouster of Venezuela's Hugo Chavez. This has pushed him straight into the waiting arms of China
and Russia. Talk about brilliant.
Chavez just signed a bilateral agreement with China to divert oil away from the USA to China and to sell its
US refineries. It's crazy.
Extreme military and economic anti- US alliances are forming before our very eyes. This administration has done nothing to prevent that, but actually
fostered it. The old international frameworks that have sustained us since the end of WW2 are fracturing. Instead of working to re-enforce them, this
administration is taking a wrecking ball to them. Simply put, it's suicidal.
It's so very ironic, Bush likes to liken himself to former President Ronald Reagan. But if the Gipper could see what is going on now, with Bush's
plans to build a new generation of nukes, blowing off the treaties and strutting around threatening various countries, he'd denounce Bush for the
Charlatan he is. I guarantee it.
A Peek Behind Bush II’s ‘War on Tyranny’

Control all ’tyrannical’ world oil chokepoints
In recent public speeches, George W. Bush and others in the Administration, including Condi Rice, have begun to make a significant shift in the
rhetoric of war. A new ‘War on Tyranny’ is being groomed to replace the outmoded War on Terror. Far from being a semantic nuance, the shift is
highly revealing of the next phase of Washington’s global agenda.
In his 20 January inaugural speech, Bush declared:
"It is the policy of the United States to seek and support the growth of democratic movements and institutions in every nation and culture, with the
ultimate goal of ending tyranny in our world."
Bush repeated the last formulation, ‘ending tyranny in our world’ in the State of the Union. (author’s emphasis). In 1917 it was a "war to make
the world safe for democracy," and in 1941 it was a "war to end all wars."
The use of tyranny as justification for US military intervention marks a dramatic new step on the road to Washington’s quest for global domination.
Washington, of course today, is shorthand for the policy domination by a private group of military and energy corporate giants, from Halliburton to
McDonnell Douglas, from Bechtel to ExxonMobil and ChevronTexaco, not unlike that foreseen in Eisenhower’s 1961 speech warning of excessive control
of government by a military-industrial complex.
