Iraq and its debunked dictator have pulled a fast one on the world.
Here they were, pursuing nuclear capabilities and stockpiling weapons – hiding them so well that the UN inspectors believed they weren’t even there. Sneaky sneaky.
But George W. Bush catapulted this UN propaganda. He knew that Iraq and Saddam had WMD’s. And he knew if he ordered an Army of One (thousand) to accomplish their mission in a country the size of Texas (California) THEN he’d find those weapons.
Then the Coalition of the Willing (don’t forget Poland!) preemptively invaded. This is how brilliant Iraqis are: Even though they were being invaded by a foreign superpower (and friends) – they never used ONE of their WMD’s. Can you imagine the restraint that must have taken? Statues are being toppled. Buildings are being bombed. Humvees are trolling through the streets and you have all these weapons – but you don’t use them. You’ve told the world that you don’t have them. You don’t want to look like a liar.
What Saddam did want – want more than anything – want even more than his embargo-foiled liposuction machine was to make George W. Bush – his much hated enemy – look bad. To make him look like a liar would be the sweetest revenge for the impending loss of his regime. Sneaky sneaky.
And that’s what Saddam did. Faced with capture, exile or death – he did the only thing he could: Not use any of his WMD’s.
But George W. Bush is not the kind of man so easily tricked. He changed topics!
“Okay, I know you’re bluffing. If you’re going to be so stubborn as to not kill masses of people even though you can – I’ll see your WMD’s and I’ll raise you a democracy.”
Oooh, Bush called him out! A brilliant play. Instead of it being about an impending mushroom cloud – it was all about the ballot box. Take that, captured dictator!
Yes. Freedom. And just to one up his opponent – to show his commitment, Bush has so far spent over $200 billion to liberate 25 million people. Lavish? Yes! Extravagant? Yes! A perfect way to really stick it to Saddam? Absolutely!
All Saddam had to do was give up his WMD’s and none of this would have ever happened. Bush didn’t want to spend all that money. There are 50 people in Alaska that need a bridge! But alas, Saddam brought this upon himself. He mis-underestimated his opponent. And his opponent’s willingness to bankroll freedom.
However, Bush as a military genius has one Achilles Heel – the one thing that frustrates his legacy, his administration and his spreading freedom. It’s all those rotten apples! From the prison guards at Abu Ghraib, to Scooter Libby, to the suicide bombers. It’s the cost of freedom and bestowing freedom: there are going to be TONS of individuals acting on their own free will to muck up your flawless plans.
The only mistake Bush has ever made was trusting all those rogue individuals to behave themselves. The insurgents could use an ethics refresher course, too. When someone tries to give you your freedom – you say, “Thank you!” You don’t thwart The War on Terror by resorting to terrorist activities. If nothing else it’s repetitive. And Bush is NOT a man that likes repeating himself!
Bush has not been outplayed by his enemies. He’s been sabotaged by those he thought were his friends. His military savvy has been undercut by those that won’t play along. He is like Julius Caesar getting stabbed by his inner circle, mocked by Lyndie England, and embarrassed by suicide bombers.
We can’t rewrite history. It’s the past. Evil men, obsessed with ambition and unburdened by conscience, are pulling out all the stops. They want us not to trust George W. Bush. They have done everything possible to undermine him and 60% of us have been fooled. Sneaky sneaky.
