I can't respond in private, only here.
Wowsir, that is wonderfully coherent commentary. I wonder not that George is smiling. Orwell, of course.
Thank you thank you and again, thank you.

I just thought it might be useful to keep in mind that Saddam was Rummy's boy, as was Osama.
U.S. Had Key Role in Iraq Buildup
Trade in Chemical Arms Allowed Despite Their Use on Iranians, Kurds
Taking one step back, we have Ollie and his 'neat idea' and all the stingers for Osama in Afganistan.
And one more, the CIA twice assassinating Iranian leaders so's our main boy, The Shah, could step back in. And what's our big complaint? Religious fundamentalist fanaticism!
So here come Dubya saying 50,000 tons of anthrax, cruse type unmanned aircraft, a year from the bomb, etc. etc. With practically the whole world saying: "We TOLD you not to build that guy up in the first place!" (Bush 41 and Powell had a heck of a time raising the coalition they finally did for Iraq War 1.) "First of all, if you really think Saddam has all that stuff, you do not want to bivouac 200,000+ troops in tight formation and plain sight out on the sands of Kuwait, and neither do we. Secondly, Thank you very much for all the saber-rattling. We'll take it from here. Obviously Saddam doesn't want to talk to you right now, but you've done quite enough. We're not going to do it if you're fixin' to start bombing and stuff, but if you'll START loading up we'll send in 30,000 more inspectors. Nobody is telling you to do NOTHING. No one is saying not to go on the offensive. Just don't do THIS. Not alone and not right now. Let's finish off your other old buddy and ally Osama first, what say? Meanwhile we'll be digging up and destroying all that anthrax."
So here we are. All alone, Nation-Building in the 1/st degree and unable to admit that there never was a connection between 9/11 and Iraq. And Dubya never even talked to his Dad about it? It's just magical. Dub and **** and Rummy are what they are, but if you ask me John McCain and especially Colin Powell have a lot to answer for.
WAR IS PEACE, FREEDOM IS SLAVERY, IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH.
Money is speech? Yeah, that's the ticket! MONEY IS SPEECH.
