So I came back to see him a few weeks later, and by that time we were bombing in Afghanistan. I said, “Are we still going to war with Iraq?” And he said, “Oh, it’s worse than that.” He reached over on his desk. He picked up a piece of paper. And he said, “I just got this down from upstairs” — meaning the Secretary of Defense’s office — “today.” And he said, “This is a memo that describes how we’re going to take out seven countries in five years, starting with Iraq, and then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and, finishing off, Iran.” I said, “Is it classified?” He said, “Yes, sir.” I said, “Well, don’t show it to me.” And I saw him a year or so ago, and I said, “You remember that?” He said, “Sir, I didn’t show you that memo! I didn’t show it to you!”

Wesley Clark in an interview with Amy Goodman

From before the stolen election of 2000 and the preposterous judicial fiat that made the crime of the new century legal, peace was always the enemy and war the motive force.

Then, after 911, although more elections were stolen, it wasn’t really necessary as bribe-addicted, power-hungry, beady-eyed politicians of the “two-party system” made Stalin proud and morphed the illusion of choice into the reality of one-party rule – the War Party.

And now there is nothing to do but sit back in horror and watch events unfold. There is no stopping them because there is no opposition outside of the powerless. Peace marches and sit-ins and disrupting committee meetings are all quaintly noble, and prove our freedom, but in the end, the “peace movement” is just more sound and fury signifying nothing. Not that hearts and minds aren’t in the right place, but that hearts and minds are nothing but pulp to the warmongers, possessed as they are of bloodlust, vainglory and worship of man’s inhumanity to man.

War is bloodsport to the powerful and the death of millions of innocents is success, progress and the solution, the final solution to gain “full spectrum dominance” which, of course, leads to peace and prosperity.

Most can’t be bothered about peace because only the deranged few, like myself, don’t believe, as Bush and the poodle-parrots of the One Party, One Media, One Nation Under the Almighty Dollar bleat; it’s a dangerous world.

It’s not a dangerous world, but it is a dangerous time as the crazies in the basement, in control of the asylum, flex their wet-dreams of sadistic power over life and death.

George W. Bush once said famously that Jesus was his favorite philosopher. That was before the coup d’etat and the false flag attack and the orgy of death and destruction the bloodsuckers gorged themselves upon in the name of “self-defense.”

Of course, it’s not self-defense when you are the aggressor. “Terrorism” if it’s real is actually the self-defense of those whom we colonize, as empires do. Our “self-defense” is actually the justification we use to annihilate those human beings opposed to their subjugation at our hands.

Some of us have been wrong about the timing of events, but not the course of events. Some of us have been wrong about the tactical process, but not about the strategy of the destructionists. Indeed, the strategy of the Christo-fascist-neocon-zionist-zombie brigade has been out there for all the world to see for years and years. I suppose it’s like their belief the Iraqis would greet the invaders as liberators and put flowers in rifle barrels and spread their legs for us dreamy Americans whose capital is Tinsel Town and whose motto is ‘can’t we all get along?’

The neocons, and collateral bloodlines, simply think the truth of their philosophy is self-evident – so there is no need to hide their light under a bushel. Benevolent dictatorship is required in a “dangerous world” where our Pax-Americana footprint steps upon peoples all over the planet, robbing them of resources, rights and dignity. “They” (if you believe the official story) never came here, until we were over there for decades and decades of rape, pillage and oppression – direct or by proxy.

Hitler could dance a jig and loved dogs. Mussolini loved his mother. And Stalin loved kids and going to the movies.

George W. Bush is just a regular guy, like you and me. Gosh dang don’t you know.

The villain always has a reason for his crimes.

The countdown to nuclear war is underway. It is the final act of the insane. There is nothing to be done. We’re all “good Germans” now.

George Bush has lost every war he has started and he will lose the next one. “By their fruits you shall know them”, said a wise one. Rancid, rotten and infested with lies is the fruit of the enemy of the people. Yet it seems the people are drunk with the nectar of this fruit. In America it is business as usual, life goes on and it goes without saying, “we’re the good guys.”

And that’s why, I think, most Americans are stupefied. Our identity, engraved with images of revolutionary heroes fighting for the aspirations of humanity, doesn’t track with current facts on the ground. So we are paralyzed, unable to believe our own eyes. We’re America, we’re the good guys. We’re not like those bad guys. We’re America.

The bigger they are, the harder they fall.

My prayer is for a miracle, though I don’t expect one. There is no military solution in Iraq and there is no political solution in America. It’s all a charade. A show. Bread and circuses.

But, this is America and Tinsel Town is our capital.

    I posted a diary explaining the drift toward disaster as a collective American acceptance of guilt and an invitation for punishment. It was so gloomy only budhy replied.

    Let me put it in simpler terms. When he was a sadistic little boy, Bush led his friends in killing frogs. One of their tricks was to thrust a lit firecracker into the mouth of frog, then fling it and watch the frog explode. We are all Bush’s frogs now.

  2. I’d like to see every candidate for Federal office have a mandatory psychiatric exam.  Maybe multiple exams the higher the office being sought…

    Along with your quote, this also says it all:


      Oh, it’s always — there are always interests. The truth is, about the Middle East is, had there been no oil there, it would be like Africa. Nobody is threatening to intervene in Africa. The problem is the opposite. We keep asking for people to intervene and stop it. There’s no question that the presence of petroleum throughout the region has sparked great power involvement.

    Our Capitol is really anywhere the personal Lear and above tier land them and meet.


  3. realized how bad things are until I took an expatriot assignment.  This does several things.  First you get severe culture shock and as a plus you are REMOVED from the continuous din of American media.  Then you start to learn the language and culture and begin to see how other people deal with life.  Now you have two perspectives plus the vastly enhanced ability to react to and analyze what transpires in “your world”.  Which again is highly influenced by “media”.
    All of you here may know it.
    After that it was a late in life business degree and I was forever altered.  It’s like a “born again” experience.
