""This is the war on terror and the war of terror, the Project for the New American Century, or the New World Order, crafted before the events of September 11, 2001 and trafficked to a frightened-beyond-reason public unwilling to examine why we’re hated, receptive only to “they’re jealous of our freedoms.” Frenzied by nationalism, our young rushed to recruitment centers and on to boot camp, trained as matriculants of imperial US murder. It is the long war, perhaps permanent, a consequence of evil intersections, machinations to bomb a country or two, three, four, five, six, seven, whatever, back to the Stone Age.
“USA! USA! USA!”
The Cheney/Bush Administration had what it required, as articulated by Dick, “a Pearl Harbor-like event. Finally, a president and his vice’s grasp held America’s palpable fear. Cheney must have said, “Be still my heart.” With the collapse of towers, a ruptured Pentagon, and a cratered field in Pennsylvania, Dick Cheney, malevolence personified and an admitted torturer, entered the shelter of his nurtured delusions where he paved a corridor of death not only for “coalition forces” but, also, for civilians and those angry “insurgents”, whose lands his greed-twisted project encompassed.
The fourth estate became corporate media. Quivering masses tuned to episodes of reality anything, shunning critical thought.
Allowing the Patriot Act to subvert the Constitution, we ceded both to foreign terrorists and to terrorists within the highest echelons of our government.
The 9/11 Commission convened only after family members pressed for an investigation. The long-awaited verdict placed blame for the attack on a “failure of imagination”.
There has been little consideration by our “leadership” that the footprint of US foreign policy in the Middle East has created enemies, that our allegiance to Israel is a denial of human rights to Palestinians, and that our sanctions and occupations have killed millions. For maintenance and expansion of US geopolitical power/hegemony. And for oil.
“USA! USA! USA!”
“OIL! OIL! OIL!”"""
Quivering masses tuned to that bimbo on Foxnews with the lovely botoxed lips, waving a flag for the War Pigs.
