Bush lying and defending screwing the kids for his wars',with Ahmadinejad's help a reason for war will be found!
First, as usual I started out to write about something simple or so I thought. As I was researching it, it got wider and more convoluted with many conflicting storylines. It all boils down to a race to war in the middle east with both sides, Bush and Ahmadinejad professing to be Presidents of peaceful Nations to cover their obvious drive for war and both sides say they want peace but will not cooperate or compromise.
Back in May I did a story about the only project in Iraq that was done on time and was actually ahead of schedule and that was Bush's super fortified flagship to his middle east debacle, the most expensive Embassy in the world.
Proving that it's not easy to make anything in Iraq secure, the security of the new U.S. embassy under construction in Baghdad has been compromised. The building plans were published on the Internet. The project will be the United States' largest diplomatic mission. Security for people within the sensitive facility is now compromised with the publication of computer-generated plans of the nearly complete fortified compound.
I mean come on, we didn't build it under top security for nothing. Oh I guess we did like everything else! then we hear the almost 3/4 of a Billion democracy Fortress will be a year behind. The Vatican-sized compound, which will be the world's largest diplomatic mission, has been beset by construction and logistical problems. "They are substantially behind at this point," and it would be surprising if any offices or living quarters could be occupied before the end of the year, one official told The Associated Press. Problems identified so far are related to the complex's physical plant, including electrical systems, and do not pose a security risk, said the official, who was not authorized to speak publicly.

I don't really want to talk about this embassy of middle east peace. I just wanted to point to it as I was peeved this morning hearing of the continued audacity of this war mongering chief idiot as he does his share to embroil the entire middle east in his Forever War. This morning he had the audacity after requesting $200 Billion to continue his illegal war in Iraq to openly defend vetoing the $35 Billion for children's healthcare saying the Democrats were going overboard and their Bill would cover those that do not need it and in essence Federalizing healthcare even though the numbers back up the Democrats 100%
The discouraging development surprised some health experts, who attributed the change to budget crunches that led some states to curtail enrollment of children in government-subsidized plans and steady declines in the number of people who receive health insurance through their jobs. The uptick in the number of uninsured kids could play a major role in next year's debate in Congress over whether to renew the State Children's Health Insurance Program (SCHIP), a nine-year-old federal-state effort to provide health coverage to children of the working poor and near poor.
Children without health coverage are three times as likely as insured children to lack a regular doctor, according to a report released last month by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. Research from the American College of Physicians in 2000 found that uninsured children were less likely to be up to date on immunizations and to receive treatment for sore throats, earaches and other common childhood illnesses. A University of Texas study found that kids with insurance tend to have fewer school absences. number of uninsured children rising rapidly
The thing that irks me is the chief idiot is justifying screwing the kids over while asking for another $200 Billion for his illegal war. meanwhile the idiot has announced he wants a permanent US middle east presence which will do nothing but create war while today I hear the idiot professing to Al-Arabiya how peaceful and well intentioned he is. he doesn't care how stupid he looks or sounds as long as he gets his destructive way.
In a rare interview with an Arabic satellite news station, U.S. President George W. Bush denied that the United States is gearing up to attack Iran and said he remains committed to working diplomatically to resolve the standoff with Tehran over its nuclear program. Bush, in an hour-long interview with Al-Arabiya TV, also reiterated his pledge to negotiate with Iran if it gives up its nuclear program.
I have said that if they suspend their nuclear program, we will be at the table," Bush said, according to a transcript of the interview the White House released on Friday. "But they have so far refused to do that." Bush brushed off as "gossip" reports in the Arab press that he has issued orders to senior U.S. military officials to prepare for an attack on Iran at the end of January or in February. "I would call that empty propaganda," Bush said. "Evidently, there's a lot of gossip in the parts of the country — world that try to scare people about me personally or my country or what we stand for. And that kind of gossip is just what it is. It's gossip. It's baseless gossip." Bush, warmonger peace President won''t compromise
The idiot says our image in the middle east has been distorted and tarnished but the idiot refuses to admit it is and he did it. Anyway while he is swaying how peaceful he is and he is confident a compromise will be made he says he will not compromise and Ahmadinejad reiterates the same thing. Ahmadinejad said Iran has already achieved proficiency in the whole nuclear fuel cycle, from extracting uranium ore to enriching it, and that Tehran has removed any hurdles in the way of its nuclear progress.
"The Iranian nation favors talks but it won't negotiate over its definite and legal nuclear rights. They (world powers) have to know this," Ahmadinejad said in comments before Friday prayers in Tehran. He added he believed the nuclear issue was over and Iran will ignore attempts by the United States and its European allies to further politicize the issue. "From our point of view, Iran's nuclear issue has been closed. The fact that these powers are screaming tells us the case is closed. This is a great victory for the Islamic Republic of Iran," he said. Ahmadinejad the peace President won't compromise either
What really kills me is Ahmadinejad and Bush both profess to care about the average citizens while at least Bush can not stop harming them and some of you can tell me about Iran while at the same time they both are racing to confrontation and war while while saying that is not what they are doing. It is obvious this will end only one way. I have been expecting it this fall but now I am hearing January. I don't know when but it will happen then we will be in serious trouble as that will put 2008 elections in jeopardy from many sides.
