Bush was ‘unprepared for war’!

George Bush’s interview with Charles Gibson will soon air in a wimpy attempt to salvage Bush’s skeletal  ‘legacy.’

But you, lone reader, always recognize bull poo when you smell it – do you recognize it when you hear or read it?

Now I seem to remember Bush crowing about being a ‘war president’ so you’d think he wouldn’t catapult such propaganda about himself and his warring ways. And remember his early days in Washington when he talked about going to Mars?

Mars, the planet named after the god of war, that is. Somehow it seemed so….perfect a place for him, and I generously offered to give him a ride to Cape Canaveral if he’d get onboard for a blast-off (my offer did not include a return trip  – I’m on a budget here.)

Then there’s the astrological fact that Bush invaded Iraq during a Jupiter Retrograde period…a ‘bottomless pit in the money department’ was how I phrased it at Stars Over Washington. Please don’t do it, George, most of the world pleaded, this reluctant astrologer included.  Jupiter the General is Rx, for cryin’ out loud, I wrote, somebody stop him and the neocon jingoists from this tragic folly.

And Rx Jupiter has resulted in interrupted service as generals fell politically by the wayside. We’ve also seen Jupiter’s Rx effects with retired generals speaking out against the Iraq Occupation and the Bush administration’s politically driven decisions and maneuvers.

But Dubya was gung-ho to go.

Bush and Cheney’s ‘mandate’ for office was very shaky then because of the SCOTUS bump into the White House they received by hook and crook. The US economy was unstable from the dot com bubble burst, too. But a ‘new Pearl Harbor’ arrived on 9/11/01, and the neocons were off to the races, with war drums loud and proud, and obscene profits to be made. ‘Twas the start of something big – the Iraq War.

So as we watch or read Bush’s interview which attempts a rewrite of history on this score, remember how Mr. Gung-Ho wouldn’t listen to anyone but the voices in his head, one of which was Dick Dark Side Cheney. And remember the millions of anti-war protesters in streets across the globe during the lead up to war and beyond.

They were correct.

Bush was wrong.

And no amount of belated, thespianistic hand-wringing or network propaganda can ever change that fact.

  1. Yes, it’s a measly, weasly effort and i can’t imagine who he thinks will be charmed by it in the least…still, one day, when you, i, and others aren’t around to cry, Foul!, he may succeed in diverting history books on these issues.

    Puh!

  2. If he was unprepared, and the buck stops at his desk, then he is responsible for many deaths, the destruction of Iraq, a country, culture, infastructure and the unbridled distrust of us by the world. Gitmo lands on his desk. Thousands of veterans without limbs pepper his dreams. Contrite instead of contrary won’t cut it. It’s just another assignment from his masters. His daddy and mommy and brothers and wife, and daughters, and other previous presidents will hang out with him sometimes, after a while.

    I guess it’s the only way he can leave town and have the final word.
    Geeeesh.
