Chicken Little

We all knew this was going to happen:
If a real threat should come our way, no one is going to believe it.

Even if Iran is truly a grave threat to our security and the security of the world, does any one want george bush to be involved in the situation? Of course not. Could you trust that this pistol happy cowboy would handle things diplomatically? Never.

On one hand, he praises the military but if anyone speaks out against him, their military service is slimed and ridiculed by the administration's secret smear machine. He swore up and down that Iraq was a threat and home to al qaida. He swore we'd bring democracy to Iraq. He only brought a civil war and higher oil prices... not to mention a less secular government.

Congressman John Murtha told CBS

"He’s trying to fight this war with rhetoric. Iraq is not where the center of terrorism is. So when he says we’re fighting terrorism over there, we’re inciting terrorism over there. We’re encouraging terror. We’re destabilizing the area by being over there ‘cause we’re the targets. He said before there’s weapons of mass destruction. He said there’s an al Qaeda connection. There’s many things he said turned out not to be true. So why would I believe him when he says the things he just – made that statement."

Speaking of CBS News, Walter Cronkite, the once most trusted man in news believes the troops ought to come home now.

"We had an opportunity to say to the world and Iraqis after the hurricane disaster that Mother Nature has not treated us well and we find ourselves missing the amount of money it takes to help these poor people out of their homeless situation and rebuild some of our most important cities in the United States," he said. "Therefore, we are going to have to bring our troops home."
The impeachment word is in the air. Even among Republicans. The Bush administration is not above the law or the constitution. The world is not happy with the United States and neither is the United States.
