"Seems disarming Bush is appropriate tho... "
I agree on that point and made continually made that point with various debating colleagues and friends the day after the 2000 election. just the fact that Papa bush's Secetary of Defense, Dick Cheney ,was the vice Pres. informed me that this automatically meant another obscene build-up of the military and I warned that we Americans would rue the day we let this crowd "back" into the White House armmed with practically a one-party Congress.
It was pre-ordained that since Baby Bush has proven he hasn't clue one about the economy the only way to try to draw attention away from the pathogen of re-ginning-up the "supply-sider" ideology of the profligrate budgets of the Reagan 80's ,would be to just play Uncle Sugar with equally obscene tax cuts while simultanously ginning-up the military spending again.
PapoaBush failed miserably to "enforce" a full clean sweep of Baghdad back when it was entirely justified and paid for by those that most benefitted from this military action; mostly Europe & Japan.
The fact that we are here again is incontravertable proof that it should have been done back then.
As far as this intinerant remark by one Barry Finn
Thank God the majority of nations (& mostly France, Germany, Russia & China) are trying to reign us in.
Thnak God for Russia ?...: who is far more worried about securing its contracts and billion$ in payment arrears with the present Saddam regime and whom is one of the key sources of illicit rogue nuclear technology to terrorist "customers".)
...and China ?: who has one of the still worst human rights violations record on the planet if just to its sheer breadth . Ask any Tibetan, fool. Nuclear armmed and multi-million manned People's Red Army ruled China who has publically announced to the world that they do "not" recognize the the 12 mile limit but seek to enforce a 100 mile limit to what it considers "its" sovereign seas ( i'm sure the other Asian-Pacific nations would like to have something to say on that when China has built up its Navy of surface and sub-surface "enforcers. Will help in finally swalloing Taiwan as well . China who has supplied Pakistan with key nuclear components to make it a nuclear state barely under Musharif's coop-de-tat engineered leadership.
If that's the level quality of your far-sightedness you're also a prime candidate to join Waco Jacko in his "Neverland" bubbleworld.
It's amazing how people run to embrace selective ignorance in favor of ideologically correct views. I still say let the nation without the sin of ar cast the first stone.
Wouldn't you like to find pout how many technology ciontracts "they'" have and continue to service with (addam ( It was France the supplied the Osirac Nuke Plant in Iraq that Isreal "pre-emptively bombed out of commision before it was finished 10 years before the Gilf War. We all know how famous Germany still is for manufacturing and purification in chemical production. business with Iraq pays , don't it ?
Just what kinda drugs are you on?
Wait until the EU military industraial complex gets into full throttle.They'll be the "first" to lead us all into the Armageddon that supposed to play out because they still get "most" of their oil from the MidEast let alone their need to rise to empire status and some cultiish dream of realizing a dream of Euro-supremacy.
Wait for it.
