New GOP "Strateragy" in Iraq


Recommended Posts

Did you watch the clip? It's propaganda, and it doesn't work on me. You see I have a set of core beliefs that the union could not even touch (that's why I'm no longer a member). Most people have a set, but some do not (morally bankrupt) and are swayed by the blowhard media oulets. In combat, one wishes to have comrades with the right set of core beliefs, the others either dead or chicken####. We are not in combat, but we do have to stand for America stands for, "liberty and justice for all." At least that's the pledge they made me memorize. So let's define "all". Does it include those in other countries? Well, not according to the founding fathers. But, Bushco would have us believe it does, when in fact it does not. It includes 52 states of the union, only.

"If you don't stand for something, you'll fall for anything."

This state of affairs informs the real spirit of the Bush/Cheney government, the campaign slogan you’ll never see on a bumpersticker--BC04: Because You’ll Believe Anything. In four years the only thing the Bush White House has done well is to generate a massive volume of propaganda. As former Marine intelligence officer Andrew Borene says elsewhere in this issue [see 10/13 City Pages], part of the disaster of Iraq stemmed from the Bushmen’s obsession with spinning the war to the folks at home. Team Rove has stuck to its stories, or changed them in nakedly peremptory fashion to suit the occasion, with unblinking resolve. (Goebbels pronounced the last word on the subject: "The rank and file are usually much more primitive than we imagine. Propaganda must therefore always be essentially simple and repetitious.")
