here, but I do believe that George, Colin, and Donald are all
strung out on testosterone. Dick would
be too, except for his heart thing.
I spotted it right
away when Colin Powell started to speak at the United Nations
this week. He threw away his prepared
speech, started rambling off the cuff, and you could see it in
his eyes. Colin wanted to kill that French guy or somebody
else, anybody, maybe some Iraqi kids would do the trick.
might just be the first President with a deviated septum. I
don’t know for sure, but all of these guys in our Executive Branch
want to go out and kill people. Women, children, or even
infants, it doesn’t matter to them. Just like it has never
mattered to anyone starting a war, because the innocent are the
people that get killed in every war.
face it: nobody in the White House other than Colin Powell had
the guts to go to war when their chance came, so it would seem
plausible that these guys have taken something to give them this
need for war now. These guys don’t want to defend America,
on the contrary they have left America’s borders wide open and
all the tough talk of getting Osama bin Laden “dead or alive” is
a thing of the past. In fact Osama is never even mentioned
by George any more. The War on Terrorism it has been decided, no
longer will raise George Bush’s poll numbers.
Colin Powell has been
in favor of killing women and children for years. In fact in
his autobiography he talks about destroying the
food supply and homes of villagers. “We burned the thatched
huts, starting the blaze with Ronson and Zippo lighters…. Ho
Chi Minh had said people were like the sea in which his guerillas
swam. We tried to solve the problem by making the whole sea
uninhabitable. In the hard logic of war, what difference
does it make if you shoot your enemy or starve him to death?”
It makes a lot of difference
Secretary Powell, because when you shoot someone you have some
sort of control over who is shot. When
you starve a whole population you are killing the enemy along with
innocent children and infants. It has been reported that
Iraq’s population is 42% children. Equating those children with
combatants is at the very heart of “The Powell Doctrine” which
recommends using overwhelming force on the enemy, regardless of
civilian casualties. We can see that in our last war in Afghanistan.
Civilian deaths were
not even counted, even though thousands died. We
only learned of them from international organizations that investigated. As
far as our government is concerned, civilian deaths are “unfortunate.”
you spent the time and listened to this last round of speeches
at the UN after Dr.
Hans Blix gave his report, you could hear it
in the tone of their voices. Only the United States, Great
Britain, and Spain wanted to go to war right now and each of their
representatives’ voices were hard and angry, while everyone else
spoke of hope for a peaceful solution and their voices sounded
I have been to war
and know how combat can take over your whole mind and body. It
is an adrenaline rush like no other. I didn’t think that those
way in the rear could get that rush, but
George, Colin, and Donald must think you can.
can only hope that these men will get into some sort of treatment
program and that
they can get off this testosterone habit
before they kill more innocent people.
