The calender tells me it's February 15th, 2007. It doesn't seem that long ago that w and his ilk sent the finest fighting force ever known to mankind off to iraq and afghanistan. I know I should say afghanistan and iraq, because we invaded aghanistan first and then of course iraq. But really afghanistan was just an afterthought to w. maybe afterthought is the wrong word here. But what can I replace thought with when w is involved. After.....what? What is the opposite of thought? What is the absence of thought in ones mind? Unconsciousness i would assume. So, afghanistan was just an afterunconsciousness in w's mind. Oops, there I go again. You probably caught it on the first read. I implied w had a mind. Allright, afghanistan was just an afterunconciousness in w's cranial void. Prior to September 11,2001, the ventriloquists that control w were already planning to invade iraq. Why? To create unrest in the middle east and drive gas prices up. Way up. 9-11 gave them the excuse they needed, but first they had to act like they cared about avenging the greatest american disaster since Pearl Harbor. So cheney pulled w's string. w's lips moved and it sounded like he said we would hunt down bin laden and all y'all were either fer us or agin' us. Well as soon as the troops had bin laden in their sites cheney made w call them off. "let's go get them w by god md's over in iraq. tony blair said they's tryin' to nuke us too", w mouthed. cheney's lips didn't move. tricky dick's got that ventriloquist stuff down pat. his lips never move when w "speaks". So now America's finest and bravest are mired in the iraqi desert today, some damn near 4 years later. Way to work w. Nice job. Today i had the unfortunate experience of listening to america's own baghdad bob, tony snow tell a reporter that as anybody who has studied military history knows, plans change when you meet the enemy. Problem is, w and his ilk never studied military history and never put together anything remotely akin to a plan. tony snow needs to take it on back to fox noise and let cheney and his ventriloquist doll w tell their own lies. Lies that have led to more than 3000 american deaths and so many wounds more horrific than we civilians can imagine. Truth would have been the prudent path. The truth is that america was attacked by 14 sunni saudi lunatics. The sunnis far outnumber the shia across the globe. binladen, al-qaeda, and the taliban are sunni. they are much more radical than the shi'ite iranians who feared talibani influence would spread into iran. We could have asked the iranians to help us overthrow the taliban and al-qaeda. It would have been to their advantage. Why did the talibani an al-qaeda scum flee to pakistan and not iran when the shit hit the fan? They knew they were not welcome in iran. The more than 100,000 American troops and billions of dollars spent in iraq could have easily captured bin laden and established an order and government in afghanistan much more stable than what we see in iraq now. So what if saddam hussein is still in power. he was no worse a threat to america than a mafia thugs like john gotti and such. Problem solved and on the way out we could have told iran: We appreciate what little help you gave, but if you keep messing around with those nukes we'll be back for you. That's a promise they would remember. Now we would be able to deal with the iranian nuclear threat in an intelligent manner from a world wide respected positon of strength. w could have guaranteed for his alleged administration a somewhat more favorable historical judgement than his now absolute and without a doubt dead last finish among all the American presidents. Now far behind nixon and hoover, his two closest competitors for the cellar. Instead, here we sit unable to force iraq to abandon its nuclear expansion. We have no diplomatic support or credibility because everything up till now has been based on w's long-exposed lies. We have no military leverage because w's lies to invade iraq and his delusional inablity to recognize the truth of the situation on the ground there have severely weakened the worlds finest fighting force. Instead of following a prudent truthful path that would have guaranteed w a favorable historical review, this fool invades the wrong country, pulls the troops out of the right country and loses two wars in the process. Even that bastion of right wing "logic" and former nixon speech writer Pat Buchanan said today on Joe Scarboroughs show that w has lost both iraq and afghanistan. The man that coined the phrases "my fellow americans" and "the silent majority" now says w has lost two wars. Hell if w would've coached the Indianapolis Colts this year, they would've gone 0-16. Even with Peyton. Even a broke clock gets it right twice a day. w has never gotten anything right. Ever. That makes him dumber than a broke clock. That's how incompetent this fool is. No American president except nixon, with an assist from johnson has lost a war. w has lost two at the same time. The blame here lies wholely and squarely on this illegitimate presidents shoulders. Blame he surely will not accept and look to place on others. The troops are to be wholeheartedly commended for their super human efforts. They obeyed their orders, time and again honoring without question the commitments they made to protect the land we all love. May we please welcome them back very soon. When tomorrow's tomorrow comes and you see that veteran at the bar, buy him a beer or two. Say thanks, but don't ask him how it was because you and I wouldn't understand anyway. We weren't there. When the vet on crutches gets behind you in line at the grocery store to check out, let him in front of you. He earned it. They all did but they were betrayed by the lies, incompetence, and corruption of the bush alleged administration. Of all the sins of w and his ilk this is the worst.

Recently, the president of vice tricky dick cheney stated that scooter libby was one of the more honest men he knew. More honest than who? tricky dick himself or maybe tricky dicks underling w. Assuming that to be true, who would scooter brag to about that? Will he under oath at his perjury trial with his hand on a bible and two fingers crossed behind his back, proudly reply to Special Prosecutor Fitzpatricks cross examination that "I am one of the more honest men that the president of vice knows!...by god." To which Fitzpatrick must surely reply "that is why you are on trial for perjury". How many more honest men does tricky dick know? Alphabetized by last names first, the list must surely begin with Jack Abramoff, Duke Cunningham, Tom DeLay, Jeff Gannon, Ted Haggard and continue on and on through the federal prison system all the way to w. The president of vice probably doesn't know anyone whose last names begin with x,y, or z. Guys whose names begin with x,y, or z can't pass the security check and aren't allowed close enough to tricky dick to pass him any suitcases full of unmarked bills. Why didn't tricky dick call scooter the most honest man I know? Does the president of vice not know anyone who is most more honest than a defendant in a federal courtroom on trial for perjury? Probably not. Honesty doesn't get you very far in the president of vices administration. tricky dicks underling and amateur mouthpiece w knows full well that he best never tell the truth or he will get fired. Remember the tricksters hunting buddy Harry Whittington? After he truthfully told the president of vice "You're drunk and can't shoot straight", he ended up with a face full of birdshot quicker than a no bid halliburton contract gets approved at the state department. Swift retribution awaits all who speak the dreaded truth about subjects near and dear to the president of vices mechanical heart. And that is why scooter is where he is today. When Joe Wilson exposed the yellow cake uranium lie to the world, the president of vice sent his lap dog scooter out to discredit the Wilsons in the mainstream media. Yip, yap, yip howled scooter to the likes of Robert Novak and the infomercialists at fox news. "Wilson's a liar and his wife is a CIA agent" yipped scooter. "Remember the CIA? They're the ones that fed my daddy dick and his boy w all that bad intelligence about Iraq in the first place" scooters bawling continued. Luckily, Special Prosecutor Fitzpatrick turned the water hose on that bad doggie scooter and dragged his ass in front of a grand jury by the scruff of his neck. What did scooter do then? He lied like a rug to protect the president of vice. Soon scooter will learn his fate. Will he share a federal prison cell with Abramoff or Cunningham? Probably not. Prison officials make sure members of the same street gangs are kept apart from each other in prison. That way they can't recruit new members and continue their gang activities behind bars. Seriously though, let's hope that this trial will be the beginning of the end for this alleged administration. Like the tape on the door lock that the Watergate security guards found one night while Liddy, Hunt and the other burglars cowered in fear, will this trial be the start of the trail that leads all the way to the oval office? I certainly hope so. On a much more serious note, I wish that for once in his life the president of vice had told the truth when he muttered "the insurgency is in its last throes". Maybe then, the troops would all be home now. And safe.

Today, msnbc debated why Hillary Clinton visited Iraq while senate hearings were held on the war there. The msnbc debaters determined that her visit was an attempt to strengthen her presidential bid in 2008. Maybe so, but here's my take on her visit. Hillary voted for the war. Had she attended the hearings, she would be expected to criticize the invasion rationale(s), planning and the conduct of the war thus far. She should rightfully criticize both the rationale and planning of this war, though it is difficult to use the words rationale and planning when describing anything allegedly led by w. Any criticism she may offer, especially if such criticism is as deservedly and harshly realistic as that offered by senator Fiengold would give opponents the opportunity to play the flip-flop card against her in 2008. Democrat nominee hopefuls have studied the John Kerry primer on how to lose an election and are determined to avoid all the pitfalls that befell Kerry. "No flip flop here" will say Hillary, "I was there with the troops. I felt their pain". Now we all know when tricky dick cheney and his ilk visit the troops, it's not for a night patrol in Al-Anbar province or a fire suppression force recon mission in sadr city. No indeed, a fire arms enthusiast like the president of vice is there for a sit down (rarely does he stand. remember the vice-presidential debates of 2004?). His dinner with the rear echelon will be catered by the finest gourmet chefs black water, inc. can kidnap from all over the world. w won't even bat an eye when his boss brings back the tab for that dinner either. halliburtons stock will go up, the price of light sweet crude will top $60 a barrel and w will sleep like a baby. Hell, w won't even whine when his baby sitter condi tells him it's bedtime: 9:30p.m. w's not allowed to watch television any later than that. James Dobson and Pat Robertson might cut off his allowance if they knew he watched all that PG-13 rated garbage on TV at those hours. Wait now, we were talking about Hillary weren't we? When Hillary goes to Iraq, she best pack a lunch. No telling what the good folks at kellog, brown and root will slip into her meal-ready to eat. Hillary isn't going to Iraq to drive a troop transport down IED boulevard or provide covering fire for a med-evac mission. No, she is going there to cover her ass. She will provide no flip flop ammo for her 2008 opponents by attending the war hearings. While w's war approval ratings sink from 20% to absolutely zero, nil, nada, not even a high five from from bill o'lielly percent, she still has time to say: "Sorry, I didn't mean to vote for that war. I got lied to. w sounded so convincing when he said it was because: saddam planned 9-11; wmds; al-qaeda; bin-laden; democracy; purple fingers; et al. See, I get lied to so much that I've found that it is best to play along until the lie just kind of sorts itself out." This game plan leaves her a pretty good out no matter what happens in Iraq from here to November 2008. Really though, I wish all the legislators who voted for this war would stand up, say "sorry, I voted the wrong way" and move on to getting our troops out of w's inferno as soon as possible. I will have a difficult time supporting any congresman or senator who voted for this war to begin with. At least an apology and an acknowledgement of the senselessness of w's war from these misled representatives is a step in the right direction. w's weaknesses far outweigh his strengths. In fact, his weaknesses are shutting out his strengths late in the third quarter of his alleged administration. The strengths are down to their third string quarterback, their coach got fired at half time, and their only remaining fans are drunken bottle throwing thugs fighting each other for the beer man's last rack of warm flat draft. Fear not right wingers, w ain't no quitter and it sure as hell ain't his fault the fans all left at halftime. w will still find a way to fumble at the goal line and preserve the weaknesses shutout. Seriously, w's greatest weakness is his inability to recognize and take responsibilty for his mistakes. My point is: when you make a mistake, admit it . That's the first step in correcting your mistake. If Hillary wants to lead the pack of Democrat nominees, she should attend the hearings on the war and hold w and tricky dick accountable for their lies, corruption and incompetence. She needs to admit she was wrong in voting for the invasion of Iraq and join those who will end this thing soon, bring the troops home and prevent the continuance of w's war from becoming an issue in 2008. Flop is the only way to correct flips mistakes. I hope y'all found this rambling informative, enlightening, and above all funny. There will be more to come. Please remember though that while you and I sit comfortably at home surfing the net, American troops are facing the horrors of w's folly. They roast in the desert heat every day wondering if tonights sunset will be the last he or she will ever see. They wonder if they themselves could face the rest of their days paralyzed like the soldier torn apart by todays IED, his blood still dripping on their boots and drying in the sand to remain forever in Iraq. They wonder how long it will be until they can explain to us who did not serve what it was like. Some never will. They hope and pray that they are not the next or last to die in w's war. More than 3000 brave souls already have. Their families wonder why.

Welcome to wsux. The name pretty much says it all. I never checked out other bloggers until w and the main stream media ruined the newspapers and cable news I read and watched everyday. My quest for knowledge, facts and a deeper understanding of the world in which I live drove me to the internet. I found others who thought for themselves and refused to accept pop culture spun talking points as gospel. Crooks and Liars.com turned me on to Jesus' General, Steve Gilliard, Taylor Marsh, Team Bio, Fire Dog Lake and such. Thanks to all y'all. You opened up my mind every morning and really got me thinking. Problem is though, I thought I could write. Pretty good too, until all y'all showed me what was up. Every time I wanted to chime in and express myself, my ramblings just didn't seem to measure up to the standards you had set. I just wasn't as funny as the General. I couldn't cut right to the chase or distill the argument like Mr. Gilliard or Ms. Marsh. I didn't think I could hang in the blogosphere. Again, w changed all that with his latest attempt at alleged speech Wednesday, January 10, 2007 and motivated me to get started. My first shot at this took me a while, so I'm gonna have to catch y'all later. There's just so much that w sux about, I don't know where to start. I'll sort that out soon enough and be back before you know it. But in the meantime, don't forget: wsux.
