Bush on Iraq

March 19,2008

Well , it's the fifth anniversary of the Iraqi war which means it's time for George Jr. to dust off the old rhetoric about the virtues of the war...... ho-hum! George donned his rose colored glasses for the occasion and talked as though he were addressing his own image in the mirror. As usual he fantasizes the American troops marching on to victory, with the four thousand dead only an inconsequential drop of blood in the corner of his canvas of grand illusion. It's the blood of Duncan however and, "Here's the smell of the blood still: all the perfumes of Arabia will not sweeten this little hand......." as Lady MacBeth aknowleged.

George has history against him. History will remember him for the pursuit of one, stupid, pointless war. Once bush is out of office a new president will stop the war, bring the troops home, hopefully restore America's reputation in the world and Bush and his cronies will themselves become a footnote in history. Not even the election of McCain can prevent the war from ending. McCain has no power to crank up the war or even to delay its finish. The ruse is up. We're only waiting patiently for Bush to get out of the road.

Bush has already entered the realm of irrelevancy. Between the economic crises in the stock market and the presidential campaign the President hasn't been getting much publicity at all. His ideas have no legitimacy. No one much cares what he thinks. His is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing."
