The debate currently raging between different factions
of the American ruling class focuses on whether or not
the United States should pursue either a "unilateral"
or "multilateral" approach toward dealing with the
nation of Iraq.
But rather than embark upon a lengthy discussion about
these two unique and different approaches of managing
U.S. imperialism, I've decided to break each of the
arguments down into a sentence easy enough to be
understood by any first grader.
The "unilateral" approach as advocated by President
George Bush, Vice-President Dick Cheney, and War
Secretary Donald Rumsfeld is as follows:
Let's attack Iraq on our own and steal all the
oil for ourselves!
The "multilateral" approach as advocated by Senator
John Kerry (D-Mass), Senator Ted Kennedy (D-Mass), and
Senator Chuck Hagel (R-Neb) is as follows:
Let's attack Iraq with our friends and share all
the oil we steal!
There you have it!
