U.S. Lost the War Before It Started

Undoubtedly the U.S. will experience a military victory in Iraq as well as a complete and thorough occupation of the entire country but a military occupation does not a society make.

U.S. Lost the War Before It Started

By Lloyd Hart

Undoubtedly the U.S. will experience a military victory in Iraq as well as a complete and thorough occupation of the entire country but a military occupation does not a society make. The Bush regime and their puppet Tony the "BP" Blair (BP standing for British Petroleum as opposed to British Prime Minister which is BPM) used the word "vital" to describe the U.N.'s role in postwar Iraq but was still not using the word "central". "Vital" is closer to "central" but still nowhere near the proximaty of the exiled refugee word "central". After you translate the Bush regime doublespeak spewed in the ironic location of Belfast, Ireland, I mean, Northern Ireland, where the British empire was brought to its knees and forced to negotiate a settlement after the IRA nearly cooked Thatcher's ass and lobbed a couple mortars rounds into the backyard of 10 Downing Street from inside a van parked just the outside Whitehall, what the Bush regime is really saying when Blush, I mean Bush and Blair insisted that "Iraq would be ruled by Iraqis for Iraqis, is "Ok you dirty rotten germ infested Europeans, get in here and clean up this mess we just made and hurry up about it. We're going to install a puppet government of sleazy and corrupt Iraqi exiles only we, the U.S. will control, who in return the for the power we bestow on them, will privatize Iraq's state owned oil company into U.S. hands." "And even if we have to kill every journalist in Iraq that didn't go down on a general, we're going to get this message across goddamnit" Bush himself was putting on his favorite press corp shtick of late, making as if all the journalists and the entire world they report to were so brain-dead that absolutely none of us could smell the stench of crude oil dripping out of every orifice in Bush's body. At least Blair gargles before he does press conference.

Because the conservative elites in America have turned away from innovative technology development as their economic savior and are setting out on a whole new wave of aggressive, colonial, military economic conquest of the Arab world's only bargaining chip in order to save the American economy, the first fatal wound in this most American of all Americans adventures. The Bush regime has revealed that the U.S. economy is so weak, so terribly weak, that the slightest shift in the U.S. sponsored labor camps in so-called developing nations toward human rights will bring the house of cards that the U.S. economy is, tumbling down. These days information travels so fast that you can't hide inherent economic weakness from anyone. So it really is as though the Bush regime in their blind lust to remain top dog after both the U.S.S.R. and the U.S. lost the Cold War socially, economically and environmentally, that by going into Iraq, the U.S. is really throwing itself on its own sword. I means let's be real, what is the Bush regime going to do? Force the world to love America at gunpoint? Put a marine on every street corner on the planet? The cost of of military control of the entire world will dismantle the entire social fabric in the U.S., a wet dream of the conservative elites in America but nightmare scenerio that will have liberals loading guns once they finally snap and snap they will without the social programs that take care of Grandma and Grandpa. The world is going to vote economically just how they feel about America's new global colonial adventure. The fact is, the mother ship Europe is going to continue to win favor with the victims of U.S. controlled IMF and World Bank economic policy while the U.S. continues to cap yo ass and stick a fist in. The Bush regime might have temporarily stanched their Ebola infested economy with the theft of Iraqi oil, but as the global food and water supply continues to collapse the U.S. stranglehold on the rest of the planet will be "loosened a finger by finger" as the 4.5 billion people who've had enough of U.S. Global hegemonic power, refuse to starve to death according to the Bush regime's neo liberal economic policy time table.
