A late “October Surprise”?
The bankrupt bush administration seems to be planning a little surprise before the mid-term elections. It seems that there are serious preparations to announce saddam’s death verdict tomorrow or the day after in a pathetic attempt to manufacture a small victory in Iraq to effect the mid-term elections. After 16 years of wars, sanctions, invasions and an ongoing occupation, the only victories that the bush gang is still celebrating in Iraq, after capture of the former ally and showing him in his underwear, is executing him now.
In the same time that millions of Iraqi were and are still being killed, injured, and displaced because of the U.S. interventions, in the same time that the Iraqi social fabric is being destroyed and turned into fragments, in the same time that Iraq as a state is being “wiped off the map” and cut apart, in the same time that everyday in Iraq is worse that yesterday, and in the same time that tens of thousand of U.S. solders are being killed, injured, and traumatized for the rest of their lives and trillions of the U.S. taxpayers money wasted, the one and only victory that the bush administration can claim is hanging the former dictator.
