ADMINISTRATION'S WAR PLANS IN
MIDDLE EAST, CRACKDOWN ON DOMESTIC CRITICS, ARE
FULL STEAM AHEAD!
NEW YORK, Friday, August 10, 2007---Realizing that it is running out of
time and trying American's patience, the Bush Administration is
grasping at straws to portray the troop surge as successful while
continuing to demonize Iran, most likely in preparation for an attack
The Associated Press,
which acts as a virtual mouthpiece for the Bush Administration, ran two
stories today, one titled "Iraq critics concede military
progress"; the other, "Bush says Iran destabilizing force in Iraq."
Bush basically characterized Iran as in the second article as
"very dangerous for world stability."
We can see that, as America
supports a large battle group off the coast of Iran, it is certainly
poised to strike at that country and demonstrate "shock and awe."
That's expensive stuff floating out there. They are not keeping it out
there for nothing. Then, there is the construction of the $600 million
American embassy in Baghdad, another sign that there will be no
movement to withdraw troops. U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's refusal
to support impeachment of President George Bush and Vice President
Richard Cheney, and her scheduling of a vote on a bill for increased
surveillance measures, which quckly passed and was signed into law,
demonstrate that her actions are only designed to buy time for the Bush
Administration and stall anti-war factions that are waiting for her to
do something to stop the war.
In the meantime, Bush has
indicated in one of his executive orders that any move against
the U.S. invasion and occupation of Iraq can be met by the seizure of
assets. This means, as many have said, that the Bush administration can
seize the assets of anyone who voices opposition to the war. Congress
has just passed legislation that will allow the Bush Administration to
monitor communications of American citizens merely on the belief that
they are either overseas, or are communicating to a party overseas. No
connection with terrorism is needed, and there is no judicial oversight
America is tumbling toward greater exposure
in the Middle East if something radical does not happen. The plan to
control Mideast oil is still on the front burner and is going full
steam ahead. There is nothing to stop it.
