Wars do funny things to people, including the likes of Paul Craig Roberts:
When are the American people and their representatives in Congress and the military going to wake up and realize that the United States has an insane war criminal in the White House who is destroying all chances for peace in the world and establishing a police state at home?
…. The only reason for the Bush regime’s policy of indefinite detention without charges is that it has no charges to bring. The detainees are not terrorists. They are the Bush regime’s props in a fake war that serves as cover for the regime’s hegemonic policy in the Middle East.
The only action that can stop Bush is for both the Democratic and Republican leadership of the House and Senate to call on the White House and tell Bush they know what he is up to and that they will not fall for it a second time. The congressional leadership must tell Bush that if he does not immediately desist, he will be impeached and convicted before the week is out. Can a congressional leadership that lives in fear of the Israel lobby perform this task?
…. Nothing can stop the criminal Bush from instituting a wider war in the Middle East—one that could become a catastrophic world war—except an unequivocal statement from Congress that he will be impeached.
Bush has made the United States into a colony of Israel. The nation is incurring massive debt and loss of both life and reputation in order to silence Muslim opposition to Israel’s theft of Palestine and the Golan Heights. That is what the “war on terror” is about.
I think this is the appropriate response.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
