Sep - Oct Attacks?

by Spongebob Squarepants Tuesday, Jul. 23, 2002 at 11:28 AM

Will there be a next phase of the war on terrorism?

This was quickly written so please forgive any analytic errors.

1. Early 2001 - Jeffords switches to the Dems giving the Senate Democratic control.

After this happened Bush is quoted as saying "This would be a heck of a lot easier if this was a Dictatorship, Just as long as I'm the dictator."

2. Early 2001 - Lots of controversy surrounding Bush's politics and nominees (Gun nut Ashcroft, No more giving aid to abortion clinics...)

3. August 2001 - Intafadah uprising has seen much momentum. Israel has a small offensive. U.S. doesn't do crap to spike the turmoil.

4. August 2001 - Reports that the Florida election study by many news agencies will come out in September. If my memory serves me correct, the report was to come out the week of 9/9/01.

a. Whoever has seen this report can conclude that by Florida Balloting procedures, which necessitate a mandatory recount of all counties' ballots, Gore actually had about 100 more votes than Bush. (Pretty damning facts for Bush and co.)

5. January to August 2001 - Greenspan cuts interest rates over 5 times.

6. 2nd - 3rd Quarter 2001 - A recession is obvious, but this is not stated by Greenspan.

7. August 2001 - Bush takes one of the longest vacations in Presidential history, regardless of the facts that the economy is floundering due to Bush's

riduculously huge (corporate) tax breaks, escalating violence in the mideast, recession, and the fact that damning election results will become public.

8. September 2001 -Everything mentioned above is spinning out of control. Bush's first week back from vacation - One of the largest terrorist? operations occurs on U.S. soil.

My analysis of 2002.

1. Bush signs into law many civil liberty attacking laws. (Patriot Act, TIPS, Homeland Security Bill soon)

2. Recession is over. However, tons of corporate scandals force many megolithic companies to Chapter 11.

3. Dickhead Cheney will not release public documents showing how enron impacted the deregulation of states' power.

4. War is big in Israel. Israel army given the greenlight for mass murder and occupation. Still, Bush is doing jack shit to quelch violence.

5. Corporate scandals are huge. Media starting to report Halliburton's and Harken's manipulative past.

6. Although a recession is not happening, corporate scandals will negatively impact the stock market. Recession to Depression imminent.

7. Bush has had greenlight for military operations throughout the world. However the Homeland Security Act has not passed yet, meaning full scale domestic

war cannot happen yet (soon though.)

8. Scheduled for August 2001 is another one of the longest Presidential vacations ever amid ongoing war, tensions in Israel, and imminent financial collapse of the economy.

My analysis provided me with the following thoughts.

1. Homeland Security bill in debate. What would be nice to pass it immediately?... Homeland terrorism.

2. Bush wants approval to nuke, crack down on dissidents and to kick Sadamm's ass. Remember when poppy Bush's economy was sinking? War on Iraq.

3. Just like in 2001, BUsh wanted all controversy surrounding him quited. After 9-11, Presidential approval rating soared.

4. We are going to see even more controversy concerning Bush's corrupt poiitics and business connections. What shut everyone up in 2001? Attacks.

5. Final analysis- Bush is going to be surrounded with so much controversy in August to September. From 1 week to 1 month that he comes back from vacation, there will be another massive terrorist? attack on U.S. soil or Iraq will "help attack" Israel. Either way there will be lots of death comparable to 9-11. We will find that Iraq attacked us or Israel neccesitating a full scale war against Iraq with massive military, public, international approval.

I think we need to analyze the past in order to see where the present is going.

I would greatly appreciate any feedback, corrections... to my analysis.
