Mission Accomplished!

As Fallujah falls to Al-Quaida-linked forces, the disastrously stupid Iraq War continues to be the gift that keeps on giving and the prescience of two popes and all those Ivory Tower damn librul bishops who were so out of touch with reality continues to be vindicated.  The Conservative Anti-Charism of Discernment?  Not so much.  And yet not a hint from the people who ordered and pushed for the disaster that they were wrong.  Nor a word of apology from them to the families of the troops who have suffered and bled and died on their orders, nor to their widows and orphans.  Just cuts to their pay and benefits from Ruling Class parasites like Randian hypocrite Paul Ryan and Patty Murray, who sure as hell don’t sacrifice anything themselves as they suck the blood of the nation brave men and women have died to protect.

No wonder Bush keeps painting pictures of himself bathing and in the shower.

Will all great Neptune’s ocean wash this blood
Clean from my hand? No, this my hand will rather
The multitudinous seas incarnadine,
Making the green one red.
Forgiveness of sins is available and free for the asking.  But it is necessary to admit a sin has occurred in order to receive it.  Also some sign of repentance, such as stopping screwing the troops out of their just pay and benefits is in order.

    As Williams says in Henry V, Act IV, scene 1: “But if the cause be not good, the king himself hath a heavy reckoning to make, when all those legs and arms and heads, chopped off in a battle, shall join together at the latter day, and cry all, ‘We died at such a place,’ some swearing, some crying for a surgeon, some upon their wives left poor behind them, some upon the debts they owe, some upon their children rawly left.”

    I had an acquaintance who kept insisting that Al Qaeda in Iraq had been destroyed simply because Michael Yon, an ultra-hawkish military journalist, kept saying so. Yon would proclaim AQI’s destruction every month or so, and I would duly register my doubts. The irony is that AQI did not even exist until after the US invasion and as a reaction to it. Like you say, “the gift that keeps on giving”.

    Send our sons to war and the politicians sit in air conditioned comfort and do not give a toss when they return wounded in body and mind but note the pollies have only the best for themselves why don’t they give up their perks then there will be enough to give veterans and their families the honour they deserve and pension increase
