One does not have to dig too deeply into the Internet anymore to find that many of us are beginning to awaken to the hard and sobering realization that we, and our allies, the so-called Coalition of the Willing have been royally had with regard to Iraq. Yes sir and yes ma'am. We've been had, and then some. Big time. Even the MSM must be feeling some angst of late, as they well should. (Except for Dana Milbank of the Washington Post, of course, who chooses the easy path of denial.)
That aside, it seems rather obvious that the Bush administration is in over its head. They have blown it big time. Iraq is a huge mistake. We are not liberators. Oh that we were! No, we are anything but. Condi Rice’s and Dick Cheney’s feeble attempts at damage control on the Sunday talk shows are pathetic and tragic.
They are not even staying on message anymore. A slam-dunk is now a generational war. Oh really! Since when?
People are dying daily b/c of Bush mendacity, miscalculations and manufactured intelligence. How does Bush/Cheney/Rice/Rumsfeld/Wolfowitz/Pearle and Co. sleep at night?
Since none of the above ever-engaged in military service, perhaps they felt they had to wage a big one to buy themselves a few pages in the American history books.
Or, perhaps they wanted to conquor Iraq to set up a global free market place economy with unlimited access to oil so we could continue to drive cars the size of trains.
What a sorry lot.

HOUSTON NEWSPAPER ON IRAQ
From the Houston Chronicle
TERROR LINK UNCONVINCING
Despite what Condi lying Rice and Dick Puppeteer Cheney have to say about Iraq, language spewing from their mouths is just blither blather and has nothing to do with the reality of the Iraq nightmare.
Au contraire, we must be getting rather desperate in Iraq as we are using the horrific and illegal napalm as we did in Vietnam. The British are understandably quite upset over this, as they claim we lied to them about its usage. I must say, under Bush, it seems that we have become a nation of lies, lies, lies, fabrication, stonewalling and arrogance. Most of us at home are fed up with Bush. Imagine how our allies must feel. We are stuck with him. They are not, lucky devils.
Napalm is ugly stuff. According the article, it carries a kerosene-based jet fuel and polystyrene so that it sticks to structures and to its victims. Which means people slowly burn to death. Great. We are burning people now. I've run out of adjectives........
Did our American press cover this? I don't think so. It seems we need to rely on the British press to keep us informed.
WE ARE LYING TO THE BRITISH ABOUT NAPALM
SPEAKING OF OUR PATHETIC AND JOINED AT THE HIP WITH THE WH PRESS, WAPO MILBANK TRASHES CONYERS' HEARINGS
Maybe, if illicit sex could be tied to someone in the press and someone in the WH, the mainstream media would wake up and cover Bush's dirty global and domestic dealings. Bill Clinton was impeached for lying about having sex with an intern. Bush misled the American people and the world to war and no one in the press is interested. Is illicit sex the determinant for investigation and accountability?
Conyers hammers the reprehensible Milbank. Milbank, you are a poor excuse for a human being. Make yourself useful and go to Iraq to fight the enemy you tacitly allowed to be manufactured.

FROM THE NYT: "ANTI WAR GROUP SAYS LEAKED BRITISH MEMOS SHOWS BUSH MISLED PUBLIC ON HIS WAR PLANS"
I have a problem with the term "anti war group" when some of us who are questioning Bush's motivations were not necessarily "anti-war" in the beginning of the Iraqi war. Some of us truly believed the President when he said that there were real reasons for attacking Iraq. We believed there were weapons of mass destruction, weapons that would be used to ultimately attack us at home. We believed that were ties between Saddam Hussein and Al-Qaeda. Now that we know we have been lied to and royally screwed. I suppose the realization has made us quite angry and therefore "anti war." Frankly, I myself never believed Bush, but when Tony Blair jumped on board, I took pause......surely he wouldn't lead his country willingly into an illegal and unjust war, I reasoned with myself. Now I know better.
