LINE IN THE SAND
So the pampered, delusional frat boy has thrown down the final gauntlet. Speaking of his administration’s plans to step up direct U.S. participation in the carnage in Iraq (and, obliquely, of his plans to assault Iran), the Chimperor flexed his dry-drunk beer muscles.
“…they could try to stop me,” he said impetuously. “I’ve made my decision…” blurted the shitty little emperor. He even made a point to offer an egregious insult to the Iraqi people, whom his administration tossed from the frying pan into the fire: “I think the Iraqi people owe the American people a huge debt of gratitude.”
“Hubris” doesn’t begin to describe what must be motivating these genocidal technocrats who are infesting our executive branch. Their motivations, however, are beneath irrelevance at this point. There is no time for opinion polls, there is no space for Rahm Emanuel to test the political temperatures of possible political maneuvers. The Bush administration has made it quite clear that it expects to be governed by no laws or boundaries beyond its own collective imagination. It is time for Congress to vote for a cutting off of all military funding not related to immediate withdrawal from Iraq. Simultaneously, articles of impeachment must be drawn up. If our representatives and our senators– those placed in power, by us, to check the executive– fail to put a stop to the Bush administration, then what we call a democracy is dead. We will fully deserve whatever maelstrom of destruction is subsequently visited upon us.
