Bush’s Last Defiant Act As President: Fomenting Another War

In an article headlined “Bush Urges Arab Allies to Confront Iran” in the New York Times Steven Lee Myers reports:

In an address to government and business leaders here, Mr. Bush focused not only on what the United States suspects are Iran’s nuclear ambitions but also its suspected support for Islamic groups and militants in Afghanistan, Iraq, Lebanon and the Palestinian territories. He called Iran’s government “the world’s leading sponsor of terrorism” and accused it of imposing repression and economic hardship at home.

“Iran’s actions threaten the security of nations everywhere,” Mr. Bush said. “So the United States is strengthening our longstanding security commitments with our friends in the gulf and rallying friends around the world to confront this danger before it is too late.”

“Confront this danger before it is too late” sounds like code for “provide me the cover to invade another sovereign nation to further the agenda of my true masters, the disaster capitalism corporate complex.”

Don’t let this “train leave the station”, folks, contact your representatives in Congress and tell them to exercise some character and stop writing Bushiliburton blank checks. Tell them to stand up to everything that is evil, greedy, rapacious and mercenary about Bushliburton and the disaster capitalism corporate complex and to stop dragging our country in to Fascism.

    What I find ironic is that the all but two of the 9/11 terrorists came from Saudi Arabia and yet Bush sells Saudi’s weapons and calls them his allies.

  3. Big Fella says:

    When Bush calls the Saudis his “allies” that is code for business partners in the oil business. Sucking up to the house of Saud is more immediately profitable for Bushliburton’s real constituency, than putting the resources of the United States behind any real effort to find energy alternatives to fossile fuels. What’s right for the American people is not the agenda, the agenda is what ever it takes to feed the coffers of the corporations that keep the “K” street pimps in business.

    Did you sit through his final SOTU last night? Gawd it was horrid..and the seals clapped almost 100 times..

    I watched about the first half, that was all I could stomach before I had to turn off the TV and dismiss the “emperor in his new clothes”.
