Bush admits invading Iraq could have triggered WWIII

Gleaned in the commentary by Margo Kingston June 29, 2005 01:26 PM "Some wonder whether Iraq is a central front in the war on terror. Among the terrorists, there is no debate. Hear the words of Osama Bin Laden: 'This Third World War is raging' in Iraq. "The whole world is watching this war." He says it will end in 'victory and glory, or misery and humiliation'. The terrorists know that the outcome will leave them emboldened, or defeated. So they are waging a campaign of murder and destruction. And there is no limit to the innocent lives they are willing to take." George Bush ----------------------------- Hear also the words of Bush at the anniversary of 9/11 in 2002: "We will PROVE Iraq's guilt!" Hey Mr Bush you created that front... Saddam WAS CONTAINING terrorism in Iraq...! Anyway the picture above comes from Uday's mural collection and if Dubya appears as the devil and Saddam as the Naked Knight coming to rescue the damsel in distress is that the original was doctored by Gus... Debauchery in full flight, Sir.

If they question why we died,

Tell them because our fathers lied.

Doug's cure for vertigo

Sushi Das writes in The Age, How the Government controls the news.

Spin doctors, or propagandists, to use their old name, are a strange breed with disagreeable mannerisms that set them apart from the rest of the population. They have the extraordinary ability to be insincere, obscure the truth with irrelevant claptrap, hang up the phone mid-sentence and still be able to sleep straight in their beds at night.

Pollies' media advisors are worked off their feet, and there should be more of them, as recent appearances suggest.

Doug watched Brendan Nelson up against the student rabble in WA. If Brendan's advisors had been there, apart from giving the mob a good spray with capsicum, they would have said "whatever you do, don't turn your back on them and run for your miserable life".

Before Kim Beazley stirred the workers to revolt, at the Melbourne rally yesterday, he had to beat off unfounded criticism of his front bench appointments. He said "we had a very good reshuffle at the end of last week".

Lord Downer was forced to castigate his opponents, at a doorstopper. "..they were lecturing us that they shouldn't send troops out of Australia only a few months ago, leaves me just having my breath taken away."

If Doug had been advising these three, he would he asked them to consider how their words and actions may taste on the palette, in the next day's newpapers. Brendan's pointy, crimson head bobbing in retreat; Kim competing in Strictly Dancing; Lex hectoring his lecturers about being lechered.

It's good to know Garrison Keillor can still spin a good yarn.

President Bush comes clean

The Speech President Bush nearly made at Fort Bragg, N.C. (APPLAUSE) “Thank you. Please be seated because you’ll need to be when your hear this. Good ’vening. I am pleased to visit Fort Bragg, home of the airborne and special operation knuckleheads. It's an humbling experience to spruik before you tonight. But tonight for once I will tell you the truth... I lied. We lied. The administration lied. We knew Saddam never had any weapons of Mass destruction. Oh sure, we knew he was ruthless but previous US administrations encouraged him to be so, for good reason and to protect US interest in that region of the world. Unfortunately after Saddam’s invasion of Kuwait which we did not object to, we had to do something about it because of the outrage in the world community. Daddy left Saddam in charge anyway because we could not let elections take place. Imagine! It would have been a total disaster as fundamentalists would have seized power, like in Iran. But slowly, after a few too many years of sanctions, things turned sour. Saddam and the Europeans made secret deals under the United Nation umbrella to buy some of Saddam oil in order to feed his people. Of course we had a few operatives there whose ears were pricked and the previous administration placed a few corrupt links in between Saddam and the Europeans, including Russia, just in case. But of all sins committed there, it was the Europeans decision to exchange the oil for their newfangled money—the Euro... Oh boy did that irk our previous administration! It bit the bullet so to speak and worked feverishly to sabotage the deals but it did not work. My friends at Neocon Headquarters were not impressed. They knew what had to be done. Here in the Bush family we have a good tradition of dealing and wheeling in the greatest interest of America’s values. It started with pop, my grandpa who made a shit load of money trading with the Nazis... Daddy carried on the business by buttering the Saudis... All for a good American cause: The mighty US dollar. See, as president of this great nation, our greatest responsibility is to protect the oil WELLs of the world for American interests. And that is your calling as WELL. (Wink wink...) The soldiers and families of Fort Bragg have contributed mightily to my efforts to secure US petroleum supplies for the next forty years and to protect the religion of this country: the motorcar industry. America is grateful. So is your driver in chief. Our troops here and across the world are fighting a global war on oil appropriation. But a sting reached our shores on September 11, 2001. The antipetrolists who attacked us, and the antipetrolists we face, murder in the name of a Total, BP and Exxon hate-ideology that hates corruption, rejects petroleum-sucking and prefers goats. To achieve these aims, they have killed in Madrid, Istanbul, Jakarta, Casablanca, Riyadh, Bali and elsewhere... To achieve our aims, we have killed in Nicaragua, Cuba, Chile, Panama and many other places... We invaded Iraq, Afghanistan, and with our superior subsidies we also have killed many many countries’ ability to trade fair and square... We have to. In the ideal world we could be a bit more egalitarian, but with the upcoming competition of China and Europe, and the FAST dwindling oil supplies we can’t afford any sentimental utopian crap. Never been in the US psyche, never will be. We go to war to protect US interests. And the tradition is that all US presidents, without exception, have to have their little or big wars to that effect. The antipetrolists believe that petrolistic societies are not quite what they claim to be, decadent to boot, which most are, despite our now improving tightfisted “morality

Fourth of July

The Prez struts out to challenge Usama to "bring it on", to dig him and Dick out of their safe-house under the Rockies.

But the polls indicate the nation is tuning out. What happens next?

New U.S.A. National Anthem Lyrics

Oh say, can you see, by the dawn's early light

That President Bush is not particularly bright?

He has plenty of people to tell him what to do,

Like Condie and Cheney and his Halliburton crew

He's showing the world that he doen't give a toss,

and proving to the Arabs that he's more than a little Cross 

It's all just a big game of Cowboys and Indians

From the Land Of The Free, there's no hope for the Brave.

Did he really say this?

"We're hooked on oil from the Middle East, which is a national security problem and an economic security problem," Bush said.

Well, of course, it hasn't been confirmed he actually said those words. Until a Murdox says so, I choose to believe he didn't meant it like that.

Blair may snub US on climate

July 1: Leaked papers reveal huge gulf between Europe and Bush as PM ponders political gamble.

Hooked On Oil

If Bush did indeed use that phrase, coming from a country that can only supply one third of its oil requirement,  it's another alarm bell.

Googling "Hooked On Oil" (while the album be out in time for christmas?) led me to this quite readable 2004 paper on oil economics

Junior wants answers

US probes Iranian leader's embassy siege role

Also, Karl Rove and Uncle Dick want Musharraf to hand over Usama, and are asking questions about this link to Saddam Hussein. Not likely.
