Civil War at last!
Now we’re getting somewhere! Colin Powell has publicly acknowledged that Iraq is in Civil War. Colin Powell, after all, is the go-to guy for factual analysis on the situation in Iraq. And that means we can begin to get the job done. Pour strong, idealistic, young American Marines (as well as the youth of as many other nations as we can get) into that sewer of a country to kill as many enemy Iraqis as they can.
Who’s an enemy in that country? Just about anyone by now! (Like just about anyone on the “battlefield” in Afghanistan was an “enemy combatant” and we killed ‘em or sent them to a tropical paradise called Gitmo.) They all hate our guts in Iraq, let’s face it. Almost anyone in that godforsaken hole wants us dead and gone, especially ‘gone’. That’s the beauty of it. We get to cull the population by their choice.
But what the f*ck are we going to do about the self-destructing runt of George H W Bush’s litter? Nearly four years ago he declared “Mission Accomplished” (remember that)? And now he’s saying he “won’t support the removal of U.S. troops “before the mission is complete.” Well which is it, you stunted Shrub? ‘Accomplished’ or ‘incomplete’? The guy’s a mess and he needs to be replaced.
Because try as he might, Daddy is not going to be able to dig W out of this little ‘indiscretion’. (What the hell is he doing installing Kissinger and Baker in the White House? All they know how to do is to lose a war! Although carpet-bombing Iraq might make sense. Spraying Iran and Syria with Agent Orange is no good, because they’re barren - no foliage to kill. Except I suppose we could scourge their countries with a couple generations of birth defects. It worked in ‘Nam.)
Now, we have a small problem. If W gets the shove, in the normal way of things that lets Cheney loose, and you don’t want him loose with a shotgun, let alone an army. He won’t run the country, he’ll run it as a subsidiary of Halliburton (actually, come to think of it, we wouldn’t see the difference) and there’ll be nothing left for the rest of us. So if we touch him up with a carefully metered dose of Polonium 210 (see Putin for this) that would bring us to Pelosi. And that’s just unthinkable.
So what’s the solution?
Well, a little too far to the left for my taste though she is, Ann Coulter understands what’s needed:
“My libertarian friends are probably getting a little upset now but I think that’s because they never appreciate the benefits of local fascism.”
And there you have it. A little local fascism. Let’s be frank between friends. We’re already close to it now. Don’t call it a coup. It’ll be drafting a candidate a couple of years early, ‘pre-emptively’, if you like.
Coulter is perfect. She’s got the fundamentalist schtick down to a T.
Environmentalists’ energy plan is a repudiation of American Christian destiny which is jet skis, steak on the electric grill, hot showers and night skiing.
The ethic of conservation is the explicit abnegation of man’s dominion over the Earth. The lower species are here for our use. God said so: Go forth, be fruitful, multiply, and rape the planet–it’s yours. That’s our job: drilling, mining and stripping.
She’s got the party line on the environment and ‘human rights’ perfectly rehearsed. And anyone looks at her with anything but aching desire, they’ll be turned to stone.
Plus she’ll have no qualms about sending young men with ripped t-shirts and bulging six-packs into glorious battle for the Lord.
It’s Manifest [Christian] Destiny, and it’s about time we went and took it.
