Hello Bloggers - George Bush and company are up to their old dirty tricks again, and this time they're threatening the democratically elected government in Baghdad.
Amazingly, they are threatening to shut down vital services throughout Iraq on January 1st if the Iraqi government doesn't agree to a new status of U.S. forces or a renewed United Nations mandate for the American mission in Iraq. Basically, they want Iraq to agree to a lengthier military-enforced occupation, or we SCREW THEM!
Using their usual heavy-handed, moronic approach to diplomacy, the Bush/Cheney dream team are now threatening our "allies," the ones we've already spent hundreds of billions to coddle and protect, with blackmail. Of course our "allies" are threatening back. They're talking about getting Iran's help. I must admit, just when I think the Bush/Cheney nightmare couldn't be any more clumsy and stupid, they surprise me.
What are we going to do with you Republican neocon maniacs? You people are DANGEROUS! If you don't get your way, you threaten violence, or at the very minimum extreme pain and suffering. Of course many Iraqi politicians view the move as political blackmail, because it is BLACKMAIL!! Read the whole miserable account on McClatchy Sunday
reports that U.S. forces would cease any and all "activities that support Iraq’s economy... Army General Ray Odierno, the top U.S. military commander in Iraq, listed “tens” of areas of potential cutoffs in a three-page letter."McClatchy
says that "the status of forces agreement, which calls for a final withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq by the end of 2011, was supposed to resolve a number of contentious issues between the two countries, but its completion 10 days ago has instead provoked a political crisis within Iraq's Shiite-dominated government and between Iraq and the United States."
So, it wasn't good enough just to leave office as war criminals, torturers, and suffering the many other horrendous indictments we all know about - too numerous to list here, you guys had to add blackmail to the list. I must admit, when you Republicans screw up, you go all the way.
You Republicans must be so proud of yourselves. You are partly responsible for one of the ugliest periods in American history. Unlike Bill Clinton, who you impeached for purjury simply because he refused to ruin his family over a private sexual indiscretion, you continue to support two of the most dangerous and disgusting politicians ever to hold office in this great country. Something tells me that you're going to learn to regret it.
Like many Americans, I'm ashamed of what you Republicans have done to this country. I'm ashamed of everything you've done in our name. I think you elected two of the biggest turds ever to hold power - anytime and anywhere.
Since this is the Internet, and theoretically people can view this rant from anywhere in the world, I would like to apologize to the people of Iraq and the world on behalf of my retarded countrymen - the ones in power and the ones who still support them. Together they represent a perfect storm of stupidity - the kind that only comes every few hundred years or so I hope. I think monkeys could have done a better job - as elected officials and as voters.
Hopefully this period of darkness and stupidity will end soon. Hopefully George Bush, Dick Cheney and their supporters will fade away, or at least learn from their mistakes. Personally I hope they go away never to be heard from again. Please bloggers, no more stupidity, vote for Obama and end our national shame.Michael Boh
