Bush announces more death and destruction

So Bush did his latest little speech last night on how, in order to achieve "victory", America must send yet more of its troops to Iraq, to fight and to kill and to be killed. Yeah way to go, George! That's the ticket! You stupid fucked-up little MORON of a man.

Before Bush's speech my man Keith Olbermann set out a blistering list of the lies, untruths and changing-their-story from Bush and the neocons on Iraq since 9/11. It's one heck of a list. Why would ANYONE trust Bush? This I do not understand. Here's Keith:

I'm so far past angry these days at GWB and the rest of the neocon sociopaths, it's just not funny. These days I'm just seethingly resigned to their endless stupidity, greed, lies and downright insanity - and nothing - I mean NOTHING they do surprises me.

And now GW "The Decider" Bush has become "The Escalator" - because you'd have to have no brain at all not to see that "surge" is just "escalation" with a nice new suit on - and he repeats the same old same old SHIT he always spews "blah blah 9/11 blah blah terrrrrists blah blah freedom blah blah blah al Qaeda blah blah insurgents blah blah fight them there so we don't have to fight them over here blah blah" - oh and while he's at it he shakes his (obviously rather inadequately small) sword at Iran yet again...

I didn't watch it because I cannot BEAR to watch that man - he makes me want to yell and throw things at the TV - I can't watch Blair either, fucking deluded sycophant that he is. So I read the transcript instead, and watched it being live blogged over at Daily Kos. MUCH concern over there about the Iranian sabre-rattling bit - because, as someone pointed out - if you think Iraq's been a disaster, wait until the (already weakened and depleated American troops) try taking on the Iranian army! Iraq is going to seem like a walk in the park compared with that scenario.

Is Bush an End Times believer? Is he trying to create the correct environment for the Rapture? Someone should tell him he's going straight to Hell - but of course, he wouldn't listen. He never does. Bastard.

The editors of The Guardian aren't too impressed. Here's how their Leader article begins:

George Bush's announcement last night that he is going to pour more troops into Iraq was the last throw of the dice in a misconceived enterprise that has dragged his country, this country and the Middle East into a nightmare.

Shades of Viet Nam are all around us, as this deluded and delusional man tries desperately, and at any price, to avoid taking responsibility for this collossal fuck-up - and wriggles equally hard to get out of admitting that he has LOST and that "Victory" was never going to be a possibility in the first place. Mission accomplished indeed.

Illegal, immoral wars, wars begun as an invasion of another's sovereign territory, for whatever reason, rarely turn out well. How's that karma treating you, Georgie?

In other news, GWB will henceforth also be known, courtesy of the very reactionary Chris Matthews, as "The Only Commander-in-Chief we've got" (hey George, you gotta start worrying when even Tweety is snarking about you).

Although a mere 11% of the population thinks that a surge is a good idea, Mister Bush goes ahead and announces it anyway. I can only pray that the Dems suddenly grow a backbone and do all they can to stop this madness from continuing. Senator Edward Kennedy's bill to prevent an escalation without the approval of Congress would be a start. Here he is announcing it on Wednesday. It's a bloody good speech, actually.

So.... can we talk about impeachment yet? Huh? Huh?

My God. This insanity must be stopped - not least because of the numbers of additional Iraqis (and American troops) who will be killed and injured as a result of this madness, but also to stop Bush before he "surges" across the border into Iran and engulfs us all in World War Three.
