The highest ranking neoconservative serving in the Bush administration, Vice-President Dick Cheney, recently visited Iraq to tell the troops that the Global War on Terrorism continues. In his latest piece of Grand Chutzpah Cheney reckons, “We’re fighting a war against terror. We are here, above all, because the terrorists who have declared war on America and other free nations have made Iraq the central front in that war.”
It hasn’t occurred to this delusional megalomanic lunatic that the only ‘terrorists’ in Iraq are the US occupiers and their allies and that those that are fighting back are the resistance that don’t want the US there. He seems to forget that it was the US that declared war on the Iraqi people; not the other way round as he states. Furthermore, the Iraqi people never declared war on America – not even Saddam Hussein declared war on America. It was Bush, Cheney and their neoconservative pro right-wing Zionist cronies that declared war on Islam when they conspired, as it is increasingly seems, to bring down the World Trade Centre and blame it on Islamic extremists.
Cheney’s efforts to perpetuate the myth of a global al Qaeda terrorist organisation with Osama bin Laden at its head is now beginning to crumble. The government story of the events of 9/11 is coming apart at the seams as it becomes increasingly obvious that the government are unable to answer basic questions about what happened that day. It won’t be too long now before the entire neocon con unravels entirely.
MEANWHILE IN OZ…
The Cheney supporting, warmongering neocon Aussie commentator, Greg Sheridan, from Murdoch’s propaganda rag The Australian, had this to say about Britains Tony Blair in a piece that he had the temerity to title (and I jest not) ‘The world was lucky to have Tony Blair’: “Tony Blair was the greatest statesman in Western civilisation in the past 10 years and the world will sorely miss his leadership.” Sheridan should try telling that to the relatives and friends of the 655,000 Iraqis that have died since he, Bush and Australian Prime Minister John ‘Deputy Sheriff’ Howard decided to invade, occupy and plunder Iraq and Afghanistan.
One wonders also if the relatives and friends of the 148 or so British military personnel that have died so far in Iraq will be as convinced as Sheridan that Blair’s leadership will be missed.
