Tens of millions of Americans want President George
W. Bush to be impeached for the lies and deceit he used to launch an illegal
war and for violating his oath of office to uphold the US Constitution. Millions
of other Americans want Bush turned over to the war crimes tribunal at the Hague.
The true fate that awaits Bush is psychiatric incarceration.
The president of the United States is so deep into denial that he is no longer
among the sane.
Delusion still rules Bush three weeks after the American people repudiated
him and his catastrophic war in elections that delivered both House and Senate
to the Democrats in the hope that control over Congress would give the opposition
party the strength to oppose the mad occupant of the White House.
On November 28 Bush insisted that US troops would not be withdrawn from Iraq
until he had completed his mission of building a stable Iraqi democracy capable
of spreading democratic change in the Middle East.
Bush made this astonishing statement the day after NBC News, a major television
network, declared Iraq to be in the midst of a civil war, a judgment with which
former Secretary of State Colin Powell concurs.
The same day that Bush reaffirmed his commitment to building a stable Iraqi
democracy, a secret US Marine Corps intelligence report was leaked. According
to the Washington Post, the report concludes: "the social and political
situation has deteriorated to a point that US and Iraqi troops are no longer
capable of militarily defeating the insurgency in al-Anbar province."
The Marine Corps intelligence report says that al-Qaeda is the "dominant
organization of influence" in Anbar province, and is more important than
local authorities, the Iraqi government and US troops "in its ability to
control the day-to-day life of the average Sunni."
Bush’s astonishing determination to deny Iraq reality was made the same day
that the US-installed Iraqi Prime Minister Maliki and US puppet King Abdullah
II of Jordan abruptly cancelled a meeting with Bush after Bush was already in
route to Jordan on Air Force One. Bush could not meet with Maliki in Iraq, because
violence in Baghdad is out of control. For security reasons, the US Secret Service
would not allow President Bush to go to Iraq, where he is "building a stable
Bush made his astonishing statement in the face of news leaks of the Iraq Study
Group’s call for a withdrawal of all US combat forces from Iraq. The Iraq Study
Group is led by Bush family operative James A. Baker, a former White House chief
of staff, former Secretary of the Treasury, and former Secretary of State. Baker
was tasked by father Bush to save the son. Apparently, son Bush hasn’t enough
sanity to allow himself to be saved.
Bush’s denial of Iraqi reality was made even as one of the most influential
Iraqi Shi'ite leaders, Moqtada al-Sadr, is building an anti-US parliamentary
alliance to demand the withdrawal of US troops from Iraq.
Maliki himself appears on the verge of desertion by his American sponsors.
The White House has reportedly "lost confidence" in Maliki’s "ability
to control violence." Fox "News" disinformation agency immediately
began blaming Maliki for the defeat the US has suffered in Iraq. NY Governor
Pataki told Fox "News" that "Maliki is not doing his job."
Pataki claimed that US troops were doing "a great job."
A number of other politicians and talking heads joined in the scapegoating
of Maliki. No one explained how Maliki can be expected to save Iraq when US
troops cannot provide enough security for the Iraqi government to go outside
the heavily fortified "green zone" that occupies a small area of Baghdad.
If the US Marines cannot control Anbar province, what chance is there for Maliki?
What can Maliki do if the security provided by US troops is so bad that the
president of the US cannot even visit the country?
The only people in Iraq who are safe belong to al-Qaeda and the Sunni insurgents
or are Shi'ite militia leaders such as al-Sadr.
An American group, the Center for Constitutional Rights, has filed war crimes
charges in Germany against former US Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld. A number
of former US attorneys believe President Bush and Vice President Cheney deserve
Bush has destroyed the entire social, political, and economic fabric of Iraq.
Saddam Hussein sat on the lid of Pandora’s Box of sectarian antagonisms, but
Bush has opened the lid. Hundreds of thousands of Iraqi civilians have been
killed as "collateral damage" in Bush’s war to bring "stable
democracy" to Iraq. Tens of thousands of Iraqi children have been orphaned
and maimed. Hundreds of thousands of Iraqis have fled their country. The Middle
East is aflame with hatred of America, and the ground is shaking under the feet
of American puppet governments in the Middle East. US casualties (killed and
wounded) number 25,000.
And Bush has not had enough!
What better proof of Bush’s insanity could there be?
