What do you make of this story? Bush to challenge U.N. to revisit roots, advance freedom It sounds good if you haven't been paying attention to anything else in the news. It sounds like the good old USA. But we know that it's bullshit and we also know that this administration is composed of the biggest bunch of pussies ever. The story opens with
"President Bush wants the U.N. to uphold its pledge to fight for freedom in lands of poverty and terror."Does he see the irony in his statement? Will he happen to drive around the NYC area and check out the people living in poverty in America? It's not like anyone in America needs to be poor. Especially children. There is more than plenty of money, food and jobs to go around- and the rich folks could still be filthy rich to boot. And terrorism-- For god's sake all we ever hear from him is that terrorists want to kill Americans. Why don't the terrorists want to kill our leaders and our media? Why us? What a crock. It makes no sense.
Bush was in NY yesterday. And so was Ahmadinejad. What, so they couldn't plan to meet for a cuppa tea and bush could tell him to knock off the provocations or he'd nuke 'em? And where is the Sec of State? Is she useless or what? She wouldn't even chat with Al-Maliki when they were at the same event a few days ago. And another thing... and I don't condone assassinations... If Ahmadinejad is so evil and such a threat to humankind, then why isn't he accidentally "missing" today? I thought of that when Saddam was the world's baddest guy... how come he didn't go "missing?" It almost makes you think that the US would rather blow up a country than be diplomatic. But of course, that isn't true, because this is the greatest country in the world.
The article says:
By calling on the United Nations to take up a "mission of liberation," Bush was posing a challenge to the U.N. to uphold its original goal of ensuring freedom in many forms -- from tyranny, disease, illiteracy and poverty. He was expected to lean heavily on the U.N.'s Declaration of Human Rights, approved more than 50 years ago."tyranny, disease, illiteracy and poverty" Does he have a fucking clue what country he lives in? Isn't it now 89 million people without adequate health care?
And what about the working poor? Holy mackerel, that's a disgrace.
Tyranny? He just needs to look in the mirror. Does he have a fucking clue about what the US has done to Iraq?
"Mission of Liberation?" Good heavens, the UN should arrest him if he brings up "liberation." The whole world knows how America "liberates."
And why isn't the UN declaring war on the corporatist stranglehold on America? Will anyone at the UN tell him, "I know you are, but what am I?" People in glass houses shouldn't throw stones.
There is so much in that article that is utter and complete nonsense. It is contrary to bush's previous speeches, Cheney's comments and the government pundits that pose as journalists. feh
