Bush sees Iraq as new Korea

George Bush said today that he would like to see a lengthy U.S. troop presence in Iraq, along the lines of the one that we've had in South Korea for the last fifty years. Apparently the man has an endless supply of lipstick for the solitary pig that has become the core issue of his presidency.

This president who assured the great bleating masses that he did not condone "nation building", apparently lied about that or has flip-flopped. In addition to the largest American embassy compound that the world has ever seen, this president now envisions long-term military bases in this land that he falsely and recklessly invaded.

White House lapdog,Tony Snow, said in a statement today "President Bush would like to see a U.S. role in Iraq ultimately similar to that in South Korea in which you get to a point in the future where you want it to be a purely support model." Support model, Mr.Snow? Wouldn't a "support model" involve actual support, rather than the role of "military overseer" that these permanent bases imply? Support at the end of an AK-47 is more the role of a slave-owner - "I'll take care of you, now go about your business and don't cause any trouble here". That's damned close to an actual quote from Bush himself some time ago.

Mr.President, Iraq is an entirely different scenario than what we faced in Korea in the 1950's. I know what that war was about; my father proudly volunteered to serve in that theater of war. I know what that war was about, I heard it from my father's personal perspective as a participant in that war. This is NOT Korea, and you, sir, are no Harry Truman! You are a stubborn, bullheaded, blithering idiot. A puppet who is rarely allowed to speak on his own, due to the legitimate concerns regarding what may spew from his mouth and come back to later haunt him. We have the audio and video records of what happens when you are allowed to speak on your own; the world laughs at them daily on the "internets"!

No, sir. This Iraq situation more closely parallels another war that was undertaken in much the same manner - Vietnam. By another president who "made up" accusations of hostility by another sovereign nation. Are you familiar with the "Gulf of Tonkin" incident? It was, just like this Iraq-WMD-Bin Laden scenario, a bunch of pure unadulterated bullshit designed to fleece us all into a great patriotic uproar in which we would support military action that was uncalled for. BTW, LBJ was a second cousin to my mother, so do not discount my thoughts on this; it's family. . .

Iraq had nothing to do with the 9/11 attacks on our country. Actions such as yours, DO! Arabs don't want our influence in their part of the world; YOU and your peers want the oil reserves that are located there. You will never admit this, but America is growing more and more cognisant of this with each passing day. Bin Laden attacked us because of our occupation of Muslim holy lands. You KNOW this; you do not care, you have sold out to the corporatists who want Iraq's natural resources.

They need to exile Bush to Iraq after his presidency is over. "You made the mess now you live in it".
