Sacrifice

Keith Olberman goes on a tear at Crooks And Liars.

It seems that Bush is becoming a bit more open about how he'll proceed in Iraq. He plans to send more troops, accept their sacrifice and hope that this will make good political hay.

Still Bush has no plan. No objectives. No mission for these 20,000 additional men and women, except to fight against the people of Iraq.

Like pawns in a morbid chess game, these young men and women be sacrificed, except that in chess, we can make the assumption that the players are trying to win.

Of course this is no game. Bush is not trying to win. To win, you set objectives, you make plans and you give your troops a mission that they can accomplish. Bush intends simply to sacrifice their lives in order to stay in Iraq. For him it seems that this war is just a game.

Staying is winning. Leaving is losing. Every year that we stay the situation deteriorates, is a win for the White House. Because of course, we are only there for the oil. And in that quest every American is expendable in the eyes of this administration.

The American People are catching on. But ever so slowly. And I doubt that there will be any serious opposition to the war before 2008. By then, we may well see 10,000 American dead in Iraq, and over a million dead Iraqis. But these are sacrifices that Bush is willing to make, in order to generate more wealth for himself, his family, his business associates and himself.

Every person Bush has slaughtered in sacrifice represents joyous happy profits.

"If you listen carefully for a Democrat plan for success, they don't have one. Iraq is the central front in the war on terror, yet they don't have a plan for victory," - George Bush

"The load of the war is not heavy. Its a joyful, not a painful experience, because I know that millions of people are praying for me." - George Bush

"Here's this week's episode of.....

Axiomatic Truths Of The Universe Theater:

"Every time a bell rings, an angel gets their wings."

"Every time you masturbate, God kills a kitten."

And, of course, the most immutable, axiomatic TRUTH of them ALL:

Every time George W. Bush utters the word:

"Sacrifice"

another American will

DIE.

Yeah, I pray every night thusly: "Oh powerful moon cheese god, send down your great molten cheesy wrath upon the thieves and evil tyranny that plague us." It hasn't worked so far.

My mother never told me about that kitten part.

All this time I've been wondering when I'm going to go blind.

Lies! All Lies!

Poor Kittens.
