now, Yesterday I tried and failed to write about Bush's misuse of a Iraq Vietnam analogy because of my wrist today it is one of today's many inequities!
Again I preface by saying bear with me. I am typing with just my left hand and after 5 hours I gave up yesterday but the morning's inequities make it necessary to try again today. yesterday I was stunned after seeing Bush duplicate every single mistake made during Vietnam and have him deny any comparison he invoked Vietnam for the entirely wrong reason in hopes of using the analogy for political gain and again no one called him on it and he got away with this too.
He actually compared Vietnam to Iraq saying we left too early and got a lot of innocent people killed. Wait a minute, in both cases attacking to force a democracy is what caused those people to get killed. You see it today as every time a victory is declared for democracy more innocents lose their lives to truck bombs and murder. Today I was reading that the so called experts came out in time to back up little Bush too say if we did not listen to the hawks and stayed a little longer we would have won. BS, As in Iraq, loss was guaranteed on day one trying to force a Democracy where it was not wholly wanted.let me show you a little something!
This absolutely stunned me when I heard it on WBZ Radio. In regard to Bush in my mind declaring "mission complete" on the aircraft Carrier after the initial surge into Baghdad I have to think about that but knowing for years now Bush has been advised by many that he cannot win militarily in Iraq as we all knew and know and he still insists on keeping our troops in this growing civil war, I heard this and it blew me away.
We always hear Iraq being compared to Vietnam but this morning I heard that Lyndon Johnson was told he could not win militarily for the first time in 1966. 95% of all the names on the Vietnam war "wall" memorial were put on there as a result of continuing the war after he was told he couldn't win militarily in 1966.
Bush is mirroring Vietnam and worse in every way, including in this respect. That means most of the 58,000 lost were wasted just for political gain. That stuns me and knowing Bush will do what he has to too stay in the middle of his created middle east mess I am concerned as to how high he would have this number rise all the while feigning to be a loyal loving American President. My eye!
Anyway I heard a couple more very stunning developments! The other day I did hear Maliki's announcement after hearing American politicians call for his ouster while he was meeting with Syria's President Bashar al-Assad that he didn't need us, he had other friends he could rely on. That told me he had other friends influencing him now as many of us believe including Iran that bush wants to attack and with the Revolutionary Guard as his excuse, is almost ready. We know this middle east breakdown will mot be controlled nor is their a real desire to stop it but most of you know I have additional concerns over there now.
Anyway that brings me to the last thing I heard yesterday and it ties right in to what I said about Bush attacking Pakistan and Iran at the same time from the Gulf now that he is supplying Billions in advanced weaponry to Saudi Arabia and other supposed allies.
Yesterday I hear Pakistan on Saturday test fired Hatf-8, a new air-launched cruise missile that the military said was designed to provide Pakistan’s air platforms with a “strategic stand off capacity” on land and at sea. According to a military statement, the test of the indigenously developed low-flying stealth design missile, also named Ra’ad, meaning thunder in Arabic, was successful.The missile has a range of 350 km, can carry “all types of warheads” and its accuracy is comparable to the recently tested Babur cruise missile, the military said.

That could be used against India but it sounds perfect to be used against interests we have been setting up in the Gulf and our carriers. I would have to say Bush's desired middle east war is continuing to develop as he continues to deny reality until it does and he just happens to have the military there to deal with it. Gee what a coincidence!
