So, having rested and presumably re-supplied, Muqtada Al-Sadr's militia flexed its muscles today in what any rational analysis (thus, excluding the US media) would consider an ominous sign and further proof that Team Bush's Iraq "policy" has consisted of fracturing the country, killing tens of thousands of Iraqis when not humiliating or insulting them, and forcing millions more into exile, as prelude to what's bound to be an exceedingly ugly civil war. But, not being content with mere passive facilitation of the upcoming conflict, Team Bush has armed the erstwhile Sunni insurgency to the teeth, in addition to paying them...all in an attempt to keep the band-aid attached to the gaping, gushing wound long enough to pass it on to the next administration.
Wow--that really IS hard work.
Of course, on the flip side, I keep having to remind myself that Bush's wingnut base is probably incapable of locating Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, or even the Middle East on a map...and, if we actually had a media composed of journalists, as opposed to simpering sacks of shit like Tim Russert, such ignorance would be gut-laughed right out of any semblence of political viability. But instead, we're treated to the specter of "Obama: just how black and angry is he, REALLY?"
You know, Team Bush--and his media idiotwhores--really have managed to drive the car a long way down Stupid Lane. I'm beginning to wonder...
