Step right up everybody. Anyone can play. The Game’s afoot! Just be sure you don’t disqualify yourself by repeating any of Bush’s names over the years.
That’s right, freedom lovers, there has been something happening in Iraq for several years. For a long time, the situation was named by the Bushies with the media parroting his every permutation.
Of course you remember the early ones. It was the War to capture Saddam’s Weapons of Mass Destruction. It was the War to liberate the oppressed Iraqi from their evil dictator.
It was the War that would be paid for by Iraqi oil. It was the War to win over there so we didn’t have to fight over here. It was the War to punish Saddam because he was friends with Al Quaeda.
It was the War against terrorism; the War against the Threatening Storm; the War that had no parallel with Vietnam; the War we must win at all costs and The Mission.
There have been suggestions and whispers that the situation in Iraq is an all-out Civil War. NBC is actually, finally, openly calling it that despite furious protests from Bush.
He rants that he is never leaving until he wins. He insists that it is not a Civil War at all but a “Foment of Sectarian Violence, fomented by Al Quaeda”.
Our intelligence agencies insisted and still insist that Al Quaeda is responsible for less than 2% of the problems in Iraq. Of course most of the military in Iraq assure us that we are winning.
If your choice of names for the Iraq debacle is “Bush’s Fault War”, has that made any difference in the massacre over there? It surely has here. Our Constitution is being shredded.
A homeowners association in southwestern Colorado threatened to fine a resident $25 a day until she removed a Christmas wreath with a peace sign that some say is an anti-Iraq' name=c1>SEARCHNews News Photos Images Web' name=c3>Iraq war protest or a symbol of Satan.
A successful protest was mounted by the resident and the association recanted, but that threat is always out there preventing many from truly naming Iraq as a war crime and insisting that Bush stand trial for committing it.
So what is your name for what is happening in Iraq - IN YOUR NAME? Bush is surely responsible for committing war crimes by his invasion of Iraq but what is being done by Americans to stop him?
Nothing! Instead a great big cover up is being perpetrated on the American people. The administration and its poodle press are putting the blame and the name of the slaughter on the Iraqi people while Bush slides out from under his mess unscathed.
