U.S. Military graduates calls War in Iraq illegal and criminal
by James Ryan
America stands shamed in the eyes of the world thanks to the Bush administration’s crime spree. And, as a partial result, the Democrats scored a resounding triumph in an election where only 40.4% of eligible Americans cast ballots. 40.4%! So much for urgency.
The Democrats, covering their aid-and-abetment in the American catastrophe called Iraq, chortled in their joy like latter-day “Jabberwocks“. Then promptly focused on the minimum wage and other measures to narrow the income gap in the United States. Income gap? Please be serious. The majority of the people in the world outside “Bubbleland“-USA have almost no income at all. Almost 3 billion people live on this planet earning less than $2 a day. That’s almost half the world! Minimum wage indeed! According to the U.S. Census Bureau, almost 50% of those Americans considered to be in “poverty” own their own homes. Hint to Democrats: Terrorists don’t “hate our freedoms,” they hate their violent impoverishment. That’s the gap to focus on.
The U.S. government must stop killing people. Indeed, our country, its leaders, and American democracy, have failed the world dismally. America has fought an illegal war in Iraq for almost three years. And at enormous cost to millions of innocents, killed, injured, and displaced. At enormous cost to our military, both physically and emotionally. And at enormous cost to our nation’s honour.
And now, because they won an election, the Democrats, complicit in the devastation wrought by the Bush administration, grin and gape in victory. Instead they should be mourning, mourning for the millions their decisions have so grievously harmed. Their high-fives and boogying are as unseemly as their role in the slaughter of innocents that is Iraq. As unseemly as not holding the Bush administration accountable for its lies and criminal behaviour. Or are the Democrats embarrassed to revisit the source of their gullibility and shame?
Well, take heart Democrats, and consider these truths to be self-evident to the world… the president of the United States is a liar! The vice president of the United States is a liar! The former secretary of defence is a liar! The former secretary of state is a liar! The former national security adviser (and current secretary of state) is a liar! And because of them, these liars, our country stands alone and disgraced in the world. Because of them, vast numbers of innocent people have been slaughtered and grievously injured. None of us, and certainly not the Democrats, should be celebrating. What they should do, now that they have some political power, is deliver consequences to those responsible for this catastrophe to the American soul. But do they have the courage? One can but hope.
