WE CAN NO LONGER WISHFUL THINK ~ IT'S TIME FOR BOLD ACTION.
We can no longer wishful think about the intentions of the Bush Administration ~ it's time for bold action from united and concerned Democrats and presidential candidates who can honestly speak for millions of extremely concerned and disenfranchised Americans.
I'm not crying wolf and I'm including three outstanding articles which reinforce the urgency for WE the people and OUR representatives to say NO to a neo conservative empire building agenda which is rapidly taking water and soon may sink ~ taking us and our economic security with it.
Pentagon official: US may take action against Syria:
Pentagon adviser Richard Perle said Tuesday that the recent Israeli
attack on an alleged training camp for Palestinian militants in Syria
was long overdue and that he would not rule out U.S. military action
against the Arab state.
Bush's War Plan Is Scarier Than He's Saying:
The Widening Crusade: If some wishful Americans are still hoping President
Bush will acknowledge that his imperial foreign policy has stumbled in
Iraq and needs fixing or reining in, they should put aside those reveries.
He's going all the way-and taking us with him.
"As I went back through the Pentagon in November 2001, one of the senior military staff officers had time for a chat. Yes, we were still on track for going against Iraq, he said. But there was more. This was being discussed as part of a five-year campaign plan, he said, and there were a total of seven countries, beginning with Iraq, then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Iran, Somalia and Sudan. . . . I left the Pentagon that afternoon deeply concerned."
A five-year military campaign. Seven countries. How far has the White House taken this plan? And how long can the president keep the nation in the dark, emerging from his White House cocoon only to speak to us in slogans and the sterile language of pep rallies?
Bush's New Morally Bankrupt PR Campaign on Terrorism and Iraq
Or has the time come to reestablish the constitutional republic that our Founders and ancestors intended for us — a republic that would restore peace, prosperity, and harmony to our lives and once again make America the most admired and respected country in the world?
And to top it off ~ George Bush Senior
In his memoirs, "A World Transformed," written five years ago, George Bush, Senior, wrote the following to explain why he didn't go after Saddam Hussein at the end of the Gulf War.
"Trying to eliminate Saddam...would have incurred incalculable human and political costs. Apprehending him was probably impossible.... We would have been forced to occupy Baghdad and, in effect, rule Iraq.... There was no viable "exit strategy" we could see, violating another of our principles. Furthermore, we had been self-consciously trying to set a pattern for handling aggression in the post-Cold War world. Going in and occupying Iraq, thus unilaterally exceeding the United Nations' mandate, would have destroyed the precedent of international response to aggression that we hoped to establish. Had we gone the invasion route, the United States could conceivably still be an occupying power in a bitterly hostile land."
