The Flaming Moderate

I practice moderation passionately.

Support America's Soldiers.
Elect a competent Commander-In-Chief.

Clinton lied, Hillary cried.
Bush lied, people died.

Well, damn, my bad again! I am reminded that Republicans are consistent in their support for ethnic cleansing. They opposed military action in Kosovo to stop ethnic cleansing and they support military action in Iraq to start ethnic cleansing. And they remind me that it's all because Clinton has a penis while Bush only has a Dick.

Ethnic cleansing starts in Iraq. Republicans have already expressed their views on using military force to interefere with this sort of thing. The unpatriotic bastards won't support the troops. But good news...the Iraqi Oil Ministry remains safe!

Oops, my bad! Colin Powell meant imperial wars in this century. Well gosh, let's see, how did Marine General Smedly Butler put it in 1935:
I helped make Mexico and especially Tampico safe for American oil interests in 1914. I helped make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the National City Bank boys to collect revenues in. I helped in the raping of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefit of Wall Street. The record of racketeering is long. I helped purify Nicaragua for the international banking house of Brown Brothers in 1909-12. I brought light to the Dominican Republic for American sugar interests in 1916. I helped make Honduras "right" for American fruit companies in 1903. In China in 1927 I helped see to it that Standard Oil went its way unmolested.... Looking back on it, I felt I might have given Al Capone a few hints. The best he could do was to operate his racket in three city districts. We Marines operated on three continents.

And that's the kind of country we are.

Just enought land to bury the dead. Umm..., Colin, you might want to talk to the Spanish about Florida, Alabama, and Mississippi and Cuba; Mexico about Texas and most of the western states;The Philipines, where Viceroy MacArthur eked out a good living; (American) Samoa and other Pacific islands that weren't blown up in nuclear testing; and The Kingdom of Hawaii, to name a few.

Do the name Ruby Puerto Rico ring a bell?

I notice, Secretary Blowhard, that we aren't "allowing" the looters to rampage through the Ministry of Oil and Ministry of Interior, which, of course, in a Bush League Democracy, is where the Secret Police live.

The Flaming Moderate's Reflections
Bringing Bush League Democracy to Iraq. By the way, that includes NO BACKTALK. But seriously, folks, we're just trying it out in Iraq before we try this at home.

War Plans. Well, this is interesting. Not only did the smugly incompetent ideologues hatch up a war plan that didn't account for a real war, they also didn't plan on how to deal with victory. The over-worked, poorly supplied soldiers of the 3rd Infantry Division heroically saved Rumsfeld's ass on the first part, but I don't think Secretary Blowhard and the Likud 5th column will get off on part 2.

Note to Rummy: Waging aggressive war and failure of an occupying power to protect civilians are both war crimes. Want to try for 3?

Police Shoot At Americans Exercising Their Constitutional Rights. And so it little escalation of tyranny after another. The comfortable frog is getting warmer.
