This morning I awoke to see Colin Powell's presentation, hoping he had something credible so that I can believe in his ethics. Almost immediately I began to scoff. It's not that what he said didn't scare me, it's just that it all seemed a bit like he was talking about his own administration.
You see, Powell began by talking about shredded and concealed documents. He accused Iraq of destroying evidence and hiding evidence to protect itself. But wait, isn't that a bit too much like wanting to bomb Ken Lay for what he did? Didn't Powell's self righteous boss order documents from Reagan's administration sealed because it incriminates his father?
Then he had the audacity to say that he wasn't going to reveal everything he knew. The thing is, there is no real reason not to reveal evidence unless you are hiding something, isn't that what he had just said about Iraq. Har de Har my snickering commenced.
We all know, anyone who cares, that Bush Sr. armed Sadam, he armed Osama, and his father armed Hitler.
We can infer, with the same associative guilt Powell used to tie Sadam to Osama, that Bush has something to do with this too. We can also infer, because of American ommissions, that all the companies who sold to Iraq are friends of the Bush administration. Why else would Powell hide evidence?
Most of all, we can infer, by the very nature of the weapons he accused them of having, that the U.S. sold them these bio hazards and is not willing to take the blame.
Some have accused the French of the same thing. Whoever did this bad business should be hung. Like Ken Lay should be hung, like, our own election stealing bastard of a president.
And so I say to Colin Powell, quit throwing stones that hit your own massers glass house.
I agree, as many do, that democracy is good, but it cannot be forced nor can it be bought and sold.
Powell did extensive talking of training terrorists, yet the infamous, "School of the America's" is still open today. We as a country have trained puppet regimes throughout South America and Indonesia to kill millions, to be human rights violaters of the worst kind.
It is stupid for Powell to think that an intelligent person cannot make the instant connection.
It is stupid for the administration to think that his speech would really sway anyone with a brain and a brave heart.
Sorry Colin, I'm still more scared of your government than Iraq's. And I will be until you bomb Ken Lay equally. I too was once imprisoned for my views, and tortured by evil men, but under this regime, and the one before it. Right here in the U.S.. I too can testify, not of Sadam's but of Bush's human rights abuses. Jailing mothers and grandmothers in diseased hell holes for profit, prison and pharmecutical.
This ain't the last time you ever gonna see another bad guy like this,
Because Bush is probably breeding the next one now with weapons and corporate sponsorship as always.
Like Pete Townsend once said, "don't get fooled again."
