The Supreme Irony

The Supreme Irony

“‘The fundamental question is, will the government respond to the demands of the people,’ the President said. ‘And if the government doesn’t . . . respond to the demands of the people, they will replace the government. That’s up to the Iraqis to make that decision, not American politicians... ‘The Iraqis will decide,’ Bush insisted. ‘They have decided they want a constitution. They have elected members to their parliament and they will make the decisions just like democracies do.’” George W. Bu$h talking about Iraqis replacing the Malaki government.

If the above quote by George W Bu$h our wanna be dictator wasn’t so pathologically hypocritical, it would be funny. It’s almost like we live in a Twilight Zone/Bizzaro World where wrong is promoted as right, war is peace, down is up, colonialism is sovereignty, and craziness is sanity. In a delusional milieu such as this, George W Bu$h can easily urge the Iraqi people to replace their government at his behest, in the name of “democracy” and “self determination”. Five years ago the United States illegally invaded Iraq, deposed that country’s government, fired and disbanded its’ army and allowed their national treasures to be looted and stolen. Like the imperialists they are, they set up an AmeriKKKan viceroy, L. Paul Bremer, to run the country until they could establish a quisling government that would be totally subservient to US interests and whims. They thought they could pull it off because had just done the same thing in Afghanistan. In Afghanistan they set up Hamid Karzai a former CIA operative by rigging the election so he would become that nation’s first “democratically” elected president. Karzai was their man because he had a long history of co-operating with the CIA and US oil interests.
“According to Afghan, Iranian, and Turkish government sources, Hamid Karzai, the interim Prime Minister of Afghanistan, was a top adviser to the El Segundo, California-based UNOCAL Corporation which was negotiating with the Taliban to construct a Central Asia Gas (CentGas) pipeline from Turkmenistan through western Afghanistan to Pakistan. Karzai, the leader of the southern Afghan Pashtun Durrani tribe, was a member of the mujaheddin that fought the Soviets during the 1980s. He was a top contact for the CIA and maintained close relations with CIA Director William Casey, Vice President George Bush, and their Pakistani Inter Service Intelligence (ISI) Service interlocutors. Later, Karzai and a number of his brothers moved to the United States under the auspices of the CIA. Karzai continued to serve the agency's interests, as well as those of the Bush Family and their oil friends in negotiating the CentGas deal, according to Middle East and South Asian sources.
When one peers beyond all of the rhetoric of the White House and Pentagon concerning the Taliban, a clear pattern emerges showing that construction of the trans-Afghan pipeline was a top priority of the Bush administration from the outset. Although UNOCAL claims it abandoned the pipeline project in December 1998, the series of meetings held between U.S., Pakistani, and Taliban officials after 1998, indicates the project was never off the table.” Afghanistan, the Taliban and the Bush Oil Team by Wayne Madsen
To some it may come as a shock Hamid Karzai was not just some guy the local yokels plucked out of nowhere and selected to be their leader. Karzai was the Bu$h Crime Family’s man in waiting, just as Ahmed Chalabi was their puppet to be for Iraq. The Bu$h team had planned for Chalabi to be their boy in Baghdad once they toppled Saddam Hussein but things didn’t work out the way they planned. So they had to regroup and pretend they were for open elections and “democracy”. Nothing could be further from the truth. The problem for Bu$h and Co. is their old models aren’t working in Iraq.
Following the defeat of Germany ad Japan in WWII, the US went in, wrote their constitutions and imposed the type of government they wanted on the conquered people of those two countries. They did it in the name of “democracy” and “progress”. That became their MO around the world. The Bu$h administration had just done it in Afghanistan. For Iraq they planned a straight up subservient colony but they were forced to arrange for elections once the powerful Shia clerics demands for free and open elections put the occupation forces (who were unsuccessfully facing a mounting insurgency already) in an even more perilous position if Bu$h and Co. refused the popular Shia clerics. The Bu$hites were forced to relent, so they did what they do best, they rigged the elections in Iraq just like they did in the US and Afghanistan.
But that isn’t working in Iraq. The puppet regime of Malaki was supposed to pass an oil revenue sharing law that would allow Western, (mainly US and British oil consortiums) free reign and access to Iraq’s oil; one of the primary reasons the US invaded the country in the first place. But the Iraqi parliament is dragging its feet and taking its time. So Bu$h is getting impatient with Malaki and his cabinet and he is signaling he wouldn’t be upset if the Iraqi people (read CIA) got rid of their prime minister. George W. Bu$h has the audacity to say he would respect the wishes of the Iraqi people. Here is a man who is openly reviled and held in contempt by over two thirds of US citizens because he refuses to do what we want, end the occupation! In a clear example of his delusional state Bu$h has the unmitigated gall to suggest some other country’s government respect the will of their people when he and the warmongers on both sides of the aisle openly defy the will and wishes of the AmeriKKKan people by continuing the occupation in Iraq !!!
Bu$h is waging an imperialist crusade, a bogus war on terror to expropriate and plunder the natural resources of Iraq. The US populous is totally opposed to this policy; but Bu$h and Co could care less. The Democrats who were swept into office in 2006 with a mandate to end the war and bring the troops home have sold us out and are now collaborating with the Bu$hites to keep the war going. Sure they mouth platitudes about the Iraqis not holding up their end of the bargain and cutting off the funds, but this is typical white boy BS. If Iraq is a “free country”, theoretically they should be able to take any action they choose and do whatever they perceive to be in their best interests; not those of US oil companies!
Remarks by Bu$h and his bi-partisan cohorts threatening the Malaki government demonstrate just how unfree Iraq really is! The supreme irony is Bu$h, is such a pathological liar he can utters words like these with a straight face, “The Iraqis will decide,” Bush insisted. ‘They have decided they want a constitution. They have elected members to their parliament and they will make the decisions just like democracies do.” Bush: Fate of Iraqi government rests with Iraqis President stops short of fully endorsing embattled al-Maliki
Yet Bu$h circumvents the US Constitution and blatantly disobeys the law of the land with impunity. The fix is in, Bu$h knows the Democrats aren’t going to impeach him. The Democrats punked out big time! The majority of AmeriKKKans decided their elected representatives should end the war and bring the troops home. But true to their hypocrisy the warmongers totally ignore the will and wishes of the AmeriKKKan people. They are determined to do what they (and their corporate campaign contributors ) want: wage perpetual war and bring the world to the brink of WW IV.
They also covet Iraqi oil. The last thing the Republican NeoCons and their and Democratic co-conspirators want is a free and independent Iraq. True to their Bizzaro World/Twilight Zone orientation, they camouflage their real intent by spouting words like national security, freedom, liberty and self-determination. That is the supreme irony.
