Did you see the most recent Frontline last night? Great stuff. You can still see it online.http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/
It very clearly demonstrates how Bush and pals lied through their teeth to get all of this going on. The innuendo and outright lies simply boggle the mind. The fact that people can swallow that tripe never ceases to amaze me. Had I a few less scruples, I could be a very rich man right now. Better a poor man in Heaven, than a rich man in hell? I guess we'll find out at some point.
Sadly, I have an immense amount of respect for Powell, although that's dimished a fair deal given his part in all of this. He really is the only decent one of the bunch.
I also feel sorry for a lot of those guys in Intel and State that have been tainted by all of this as well. Most of them are pretty decent people, and the fact that they've been run roughshod over is slap in the face. The fact that the public has been suckered like they have is even worse.
I may loathe Rummy, Cheny, Wolfy and Condy but I respect their personal intelligence. Bush on the other hand is just a puppet clown. Too bad the former lack the morals to really do the "right thing".
Rummy and Cheny are the classic snakeoil salesman. It's just a shame that people keep buying that "miracle tonic" the way they have from time immemorial. Oh well, those who forget history are indeed doomed to repeat it.
I'm not sorry that Saddam is gone. That's a good thing. I do not dispute that. It's simply the real motivation and method by which they ousted him that has me pissed.
The world is full of tyrants. Many far worse than Saddam, yet their people see no liberation simply because they have nothing we want. It's hypocrisy and greed at its finest.
