I used to read a lot of science fiction in my younger years. Now I just read science...the fiction is on the news every single hour of every single day. I wish it would stop! Here is a big fiction from yesterday's campaign sound bite:
"He cannot lead troops to victory in a war when he has made it perfectly clear that he does not support the cause," Franks said of Kerry.
That was General Tommy Franks, one of the few Generals Bush hasn't fired for pointing out the stupidity of Bush's war strategy in Iraq. Of course Franks retired in the middle of this war and hasn't been in Iraq lately, but what the heck does a little fact like that matter. Odd that Franks retired in the middle of the Iraq campaign anyway, with the war unwon...General Franks bails out... and then he says the stupidest, or most dishonest, thing I've heard yet?
...That Kerry can't lead our troops because he thinks they are on a suicide mission right now?
Well, Duh! That's why we pick Presidents, you moron! To think about things like that and not, I repeat, NOT send wide eyed patriotic American kids to their deaths in the unwinnable war in Iraq. BY Unwinnable, I mean, that as of now, we can not install a pro American democracy that will sell us the Iraqi oil at a favorable price, hold down Islamic fundamentalism, and work for peace with Israel. It was possible, though unlikely at the beginning of this stupid war. But Now, Bush, Cheney, and Rumsfeld have screwed it up beyond all possibilty of salvation. Even their puppet interim president Alawi, is calling them incompetent!
By the way...when I called Franks a "moron" just now, it's a figure of speech! It means that he had a "Moron Moment". General Tommy Franks is not a real moron and that makes this whole thing so much more dishonest!
The unbelievable incompetance of the two draft dodgers in the Whitehouse thinking they knew beans from crap about making war is surpassed only by General Franks, who quit and went home remember, now saying the equivalent of,
"Kerry can't protect you from the BOOGIE Man...He doesn't even believe in the BOOGIE Man!"
Actually Kerry does support the cause! Has all along. What Kerry has plainly said is that he supports the cause of a safer America but strongly disagrees with how to bring it about. General Franks went on to say that Kerry points out that Bush "lost" 380,000 tons of high explosives but fails to mention the 400, 000 tons that have been taken care of.
Hey General! Good job! Now the Iraqi insurgents only have THREE tons of explosive for every single American warrior in their country!
The UN inspectors warned Bush about the explosives and now it is coming out that our own Atomic Energy Commision, the Atomic weapon folks, warned Bush too! But Bush was so busy ordering the soldiers to look for Chemical and biological, and nuclear weapons of mass destruction that Bush and Cheney were fantasizing about, that he forgot to tell them to do something about the, uh real weapons of mass destruction that we already knew and were warned about!
Yesterday, with George Bush at his side, Rudy Giulliani committed an unpardonable sin. Rudy said it was the fault of, get this...The 380,000 tons of explosive were not dealt with and it was the fault of the American Troops for not doing their job!
Oh, I get it Rudy! They should have know their leadership was incompetent and refused follow orders!
General Franks, I am starting to believe, I mean really believe, in the BOOGIE Man...but he isn't in Iraq! But guess what? America is going to vote the BOOGIE Man and his puppet President out of office in just a few days. Let us all hope that we can do it in time to get some sane leadership in charge before they are all blown away!
Let's see...380,000 tons times 2000 pounds per ton unless they really mean "metric" tons which is very likely and then it would be 2,200 pounds per ton, but hey let's give them the benefit of the doubt and say it only comes to...HOLY SANTORUM!
760 million pounds!
Enough to blow the arms and legs off of every single man, woman, and child in America, several times over? A fragmentation grenade contains 5.5 ounces of explosive...Let's see...760,000,000 times 16 divided by 5.5 equals:
OK, Round it off to 2.2 BILLION hand grenades!
Oh yeah...a couple of other little facts to ponder:
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - ABC News on Thursday showed video appearing to confirm that explosives that went missing in Iraq did not disappear until after the United States had taken control of the facility where they were stored.
The stuff was absolutely there! the UN says it was, the Atomic energy commission say it was there, the soldiers on the ground say it was, the reporters say it was, the Iraqis in the town say it was there...well actually I don't trust the Iraqis any more than I now trust General Franks who, guess what???
I don't trust General Franks, who was in charge of the war at the time that our troops camped out at the Al QaQaa munitions depot, woke up the next morning and left without checking out the 2.2 Billion handgrenades worth of explosive because they were looking for Weapons of Mass Destruction!
Why didn't he just put up a sign?
"Kill your own American! Free Explosive!"
Please save us from these people next Tuesday!
