The Bush regime has their back against the wall. With all the horrid facts from the last 5 years coming back to bite them in the a$$, these are desperate times for desperate men and their saber rattling states this loud and clear. From low approval ratings, blatant corruption, torture charges/war crimes and the House and Senate seats up for grabs in the November elections, what could they do that would turn the American people's contempt for them around or at least create a distraction?
How about a tried and true favorite, a terrorist's plot. Yes! That should do it. Nothing like a foiled terrorist plan to bring the sheepies back into the fold. But what kind of terror and from what area? They could call on their old friends the Brits. Tony Blair and his poodle brigade always have something up their sleeve to help them out in a pinch. Weren't they just talking to them a couple of months ago about a terrorist group they have had under surveillance since December 2005? Wasn't this same terrorist group working on a plan to bring explosives onboard airplanes? How perfect!
Now, they need the timing of this breaking news to benefit them politically and also to draw attention away from their invasion and occupation of the blood for oil war they created in Iraq and their non-existent foreign policies. Let's see, the Lieberman -Lamont Connecticut election is just a few days away with that Ned Lamont guy using the failure in Iraq as the main issue in his campaign. If Lieberman loses on this premise, it will certainly not bode well for Bushco. Damn Lamont and the 61% of Americans who are against their war for profit! Whining, unpatriotic babies, the lot of them!
Bushco just got off the phone with Tony Blair and John Reid (British Home Security). They all agree that they must orchestrate the release of their good, er I mean, troubling news so that it benefits both their countries. John is going to start his saber rattling a few hours before they start making the arrests. He'll start by charging large parts of Britain's political, legal and media establishments of just not getting it. Britain faced "probably the most sustained period of severe threat since the end of the second world war", he added. Mr. Blair was on vacation at the time of the arrests but assured everyone that if he had known they would have to play the terrorist card so quickly, he would have postponed his trip to the Caribbean for a day or two.
Now it's Bushco's turn to rattle their sabres.
Cheney holds a teleconference to discuss the outcome of the Democratic Senate primary in Connecticut stating that to "purge a man like Joe Lieberman" was "of concern, especially over the issue of Joe's support with respect to national efforts in the global war on terror." He explained:
"The thing that's partly disturbing about it is the fact that, the standpoint of our adversaries, if you will, in this conflict, and the al Qaeda types, they clearly are betting on the proposition that ultimately they can break the will of the American people in terms of our ability to stay in the fight and complete the task."
Purge? (To free from impurities; purify. To become pure or clean). That sounds like a plus to me. Cheney forgot to mention that his war in Iraq has nothing to do with the global war on terror so I'll just add that little tidbit for him.
GOP chair Ken Mehlman called the DNC "the Defeat-ocrat Party" ... "that once stood for strength now stands for retreat and defeat."
A new sound bite? Does the Republican Party always have to resort to name-calling? The big poo poo heads, slime balls, gopher guts regime. Hmmmmmmm. I have to admit it does make me feel somewhat better.
Tony Snow said: "It's a defining moment for the Democratic Party, whose national leaders now have made it clear that if you disagree with the extreme left in their party they're going to come after you."
Come after you? Ooooh. That certainly sounds scary! When "they come after you" could "they" bring me some pizza and a six-pack. Pretty please.
Joe Lieberman said: "If we just pick up like Ned Lamont wants us to do, get out by a date certain, it will be taken as a tremendous victory by the same people who wanted to blow up these planes in this plot hatched in England. It will strengthen them, and they will strike again."
By "it" Joe means the invasion of Iraq that created more terrorists and makes us less safe and all the thousands of deaths of innocent civilians in the Middle East. He is still too wound up from his victory speech when he LOST to Ned Lamont to think straight.
So, everybody listen up. You must give up even more of your freedom for the greater good of the forever war on terror campaign. You can no longer bring toothpaste, cologne, bottled water, or any other liquid that could be used to blow something up onto an airplane. Mothers with babies can bring formula, breast milk and juice but you will have to suffer the humiliation of drink testing your baby's food in front of all the strangers at the airport. Small price to pay for security or stupidity beyond belief?
