Bush: USS Titanic stays the course...
29 Jun 2005
The US cabal's presidential 'front man' offered no shift of course: "We have a clear path forward,'' he said, sounding like the SS Titanic's captain, ignoring the many icebergs surrounding him.

FPF - June 29th 2005 - In his speech last night, the US cabal's 'president' George W. Bush defensively asked the Americans for more patience concerning the illegal warfare the US with it's bullied and bribed allies in the 'Coalition of the Killing' is committing. Apparently again totally unaware of, and denying reality and facts, a pathetic Bush repeated the usual lies about the US cabal's 'War of Terror', convincing nobody above his own level of understanding. - [].

The biggest military power on earth using the worst imaginable anti-human weapons ever, was never threatened by any country, but still Bush's 'spin doctors' had him say: "We fight today because terrorists want to attack our country and kill our citizens, and Iraq is where they are making their stand. So we will fight them there, we will fight them across the world and we will stay in the fight until the fight is won."

The US cabal's presidential 'front man' offered no shift of course: "We have a clear path forward,'' he said, sounding like the SS Titanic's captain, ignoring the icebergs surrounding him.


Faking compassion, Bush said he understands the public concerns about the war in Iraq, not telling the audience that Saddam Hussein was an ally of the United States for decades, but that was OK: he killed and gassed people for the benefit of the US. And now Saddam Hussein - who has made far less victims than Bush - has been bombed into a jailed scapegoat.


Day and night the global destruction goes on, in an infernal american-made Holocaust which has killed many thousands* of their own American, and many allied soldiers in Iraq; costing hundreds of $billions and since years resulting in inhuman suffering by the living and wounded. Plus the lives of much more than 100,000 innocent Iraqi men and women which - according to the International Red Cross, Amnesty International and many other human rights groups - already mourned more than half a million Iraqi children, ten years ago... - [].

But like the former US/Israeli Secretary of State, Madeleine Albright-Korbel*, concerning the earlier by the US inflicted killing of over half a million babies through sanctions etc. in Iraq, Bush repeated the horrifying phrase used to defend all the senseless US slaughter and said: "The sacrifice is worth it, and it is vital to the security of our country.'' Bush promised earlier he would 'unite the peoples of the world', and ironically, the world indeed is united by Bush, but definitely against the US and the cabal responsible for - and steering - Bush's inhuman strategy.


The little of which is left of 'security' for the rest of us people on the globe was investigated by the World Tribunal on Iraq*, set up like the british philosopher Bertrand Russell's Vietnam War Tribunals. After years of thorough investigation and with a plethora of reasons solidified by evidence, the Iraq War Tribunal in a final meeting in Istanbul, Turkey, this week reached a verdict, based on international law and conventions, sharply condemning the U.S. and Britain with their collaborating allies because of the illegality of the wars and their daily crimes against humanity.


The following Indonesian comment* describes the situation very well: Harry Prasetyo, a porter at a Jakarta hotel, said he had not seen the Bush speech, but he said it was time the United States left and allowed the Iraqis to 'build their future by themselves.' And - contrary to the again lying and compassion faking american war president Bush - the apparently honest Prasetyo said: " If the United States doesn't leave Iraq, the Muslim countries around Iraq will increasingly hate America.THE BIGGEST IMPACT IS ON THE (AMERICAN) PEOPLE. THEY CAN'T GO ANYWHERE. THEY HAVE TOO MANY ENEMIES." he said. - [endquote]

Outside of the American neocon's media bubble and it's deceptive influence, in the 190 countries surrounding the United States with the exception of a few criminal governments like in Israel, more and more people read what Bush said last night about 'terror' WITH THE WORD 'AMERICAN' INFLICTED:

"Many [American] terrorists who kill innocent men, women, and children on the streets of Baghdad are followers of the same murderous ideology that [9/11] took the lives of american citizens in New York, in Washington and Pennsylvania. There is only one course of action against them - to defeat them abroad before they attack us at home.'' Said Bush.

However: the world outside doesn't at all want to attack 'the bully on the block', but the rest of the world daily sees the real american/israeli terror, and is glad now that finally some american CIA terrorrists are getting arrest warrants.


The very day the present american neocon regime understands that this is the way people outside the US regard the course the US/Israeli 'cabal' has forced upon the 'USS Titanic', than they'll understand too maybe, that the horrible wound they have inflicted on the United States' citizens and some allies too: that such a festering global wound will not heal for generations to come.

Today, exactly a year ago, and after the farcical and illegal transfer of non existing power in Iraq, in a very good story called 'Tuck Tail and Run', the well known american writer William Rivers Pitt wrote: "George W. Bush would have us believe this is a great day, a great victory for the United States." Rivers Pitt further describes: 'what Bush calls victory':

No weapons of mass destruction, and no connections to al Qaeda ever found. Hundreds of $billions of taxpayer money spent to enable this mess, and nobody feels safer. An Iraqi government as close to democracy as the Earth is to the Oort Cloud. An American government thoroughly discredited on an international stage still rife with dangers to American security.

"Total failure" and "ruined credibility" are the watchwords for the day. A process that never should have begun in the first place, a process which had nothing to do with defending the United States, has led us to a place where every 'goal' put forth by the Bush administration, no matter how stupid or simple, has turned to ash.

This is the great gift Mr. Bush has delivered to us: A midnight deal, a washing of hands, and a quick exit out the back door. Honor and integrity indeed." - Rivers Pitt wrote.
