Several months ago, Illinois, U.S. Senator, Peter Fitzgerald, made a comment about President Bush discussing a plan to assassinate Saddam Hussein with a single bullet to his brain.
Fitzgerald was widely criticized for his remarks by the administration and by the nauseous left wing media, for sounding like a crank.
"Why how could Fitzgerald say such a thing?" The sycophants all chirped on cue, but seemed not to have a problem when eleven Cruise Missiles rained down on a Saddam hideout, blowing up an entire neighborhood and killing everything in sight except Saddam Hussein; while Fitzgerald was relegated to giving a statement about not running for office again.
The only Illinois, conservative public servant, had been Bushwhacked for being an independent thinker and for not playing footsie with this out of control, Santa Claus like regime. Fitzgerald's excuse for leaving was that he wanted to spend more time with his family.
Now that our global police force has embarked on a scheme to move into Liberia, Secretary of State, Colin Powell, seems to be breaking out in a sweat.
His top dog deputy, Richard Armitage, announced that "they," would be in the wind the day after the next Presidential Inauguration, January 21st, 2005.
Powell's chivalrous excuse is, that he promised his wife that he would only serve one term; another family values man.
Could Colin Powell have been Bushwhacked Too?
Left in the ashes of a helter-skelter, neo-conservative party, running way ahead of even this compassionate liberal’s viewpoint.
We are inundated on a daily basis about President Bush being our greatest president, by the self proclaimed "conservative talk show hosts," and media pundits, too young - or - too fearful, to have ever served in a combat zone, but they sure know how to pimp propaganda and fire off "Weapons of Mass Media Persuasion."
So, why would Peter, Colin, Richard and others want to bail out and leave this mighty, All Star, Heavy Weight Championship Team? You'd think they'd all be out front chanting; FOUR MORE YEARS - FOUR MORE YEARS - like fools.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not a pacifist, and "IF" Iraq had something to do with 9/11, I believe that we should wipe them off the face of the earth - not liberate them! I'd love to get a piece of Saddam myself, and smack that silly mustache right off of his goofy looking face – but - not one American life is worth that entire God-forsaken Middle East, and to leave them out there vulnerable, like sitting ducks with a target on their chests - is purely evil.
One thing about Colin Powell; he ain't no slow shuffling Uncle Clarence, and maybe he's thinking that he's had one too many close calls.
If it weren't for Lieutenant Calley goofin’ off, and malingering around the barracks too long in Viet Nam, they could have pinned that My-Lai massacre on Powell instead.
Fortunately for him, he slid out of there real smooth, one step ahead of the hang mans noose, only to be used again to Bo-Jive the treacherous United Nations, with some bogus evidence about, Weapons Of Mass Destruction.
The International despots are up in arms over our little adventure in the Middle East, so Colin is falling back on his youthful Brooklyn Hood instincts - like making yourself look scarce, when the vice squad comes cruising down the street - or - maybe he is starting to smarten up, and heeding the advice from two time Congressional Medal of Honor recipient and former Commandant of The Marine Corps ~ Major General Smedley Butler who proclaimed in his speech, War is a Racket, that war is a racket which only a small group of insiders knows about; and it is conducted for the benefit of a few, at the expense of the masses.
General Butler believed in adequate defense of the coastline and nothing else. If a nation comes over here to fight, then we will fight.
The trouble with America, Butler claimed, is that when the dollar earns only 6% over here, then it gets restless, and goes overseas to get 100%. The flag follows the dollar and the troops follow the flag.
There isn't a trick in the racketeering bag that the military gang is blind to. It has it's "finger men," to point out the enemies, the "muscle men." to destroy the enemies, it's "brain men," to plan war preparations, and a "Big Boss," Super National Capitalism.
Looking back on his 33-year military career, he can see how we made Mexico safe for American oil interests. He made Haiti and Cuba a decent place for City
National Bank and helped rape a half a dozen Central American Republics, for the benefit of Wall Street.
He helped purify Nicaragua for the banking house of Brown Brothers, and brought light to the Dominican Republic for American sugar interests. In China, he helped Standard Oil go unmolested, and feels that he could have given Al
Capone a few hints.
Where Al operated his racket in only three districts, General Butler operated
on three continents; similar to what Powell is doing, and maybe like Butler;
Powell is beginning to see the light too.
I would certainly question where my allegiance lies, in a country at war with an open border policy.
American troops are dying every day overseas, executed by filthy Islamic radical turds, while our disgusting House of Representatives, sacrilegiously cut nearly TWO BILLION dollars in Veterans Benefits, to fund Pork Barrel projects instead; with the repugnant bill H.R.2 b 61 J.
These anti-American fascists in our government just cut benefits for our military while we shell out money to illegal aliens, like drunken sailors on a binge. We can find 15 billion dollars to send off to the infidels in Africa, that are spreading HIV, because they are too wild to keep it in their pants, while we steal the benefits of loyal Americans! How repulsive is that?
Yes Colin - good for you! I'd be leaving too, with a Congress ignoring it's sworn duty and breaking a promise to your "brothers-in arms." You owe no allegiance to these Bushwackers, and now you know how we feel.
