15/50 - Cringing fools

Four more U.S. soldiers were killed today in Iraq, bringing the total number of Americans sacrificed for George W. Bush’s vanity to 4,000.

Hardly anyone anymore argues that this war was just or necessary. Almost everyone understands that the reasons for going to war in the first place were all lies.

Yet we continue to allow this evil man to lead us. We smirk as he talks about freedom, and how America doesn’t torture. We sigh when he tells us that the nation’s economy is just fine. We wait instead for November, hoping he won’t blow everything up before then.

...hoping he won’t blow everything up before then.

You can bet he will. With Adm. Fallon cashiered, the only thing that stands in the way is tools and timing. According to Aviation Week magazine, the new deep-penetrating bunker buster will be ready "this spring" and two will fit in each of our twenty B-2 bombers. The timing is likely to be linked to the state of the Presidential election to help preserve the Permanent Republican Presidency.

I wonder what the Vegas odds are on that... Pretty fair, I'd wager.
