The war in Iraq reminds me of a movie....
It reminds me of The Lost World: Jurassic Park.
In the name of science and greedy survival, mankind declared a new order of strategy by politicizing a region in order to take it completely over.
They then proceeded to subvert science, by claiming man was above god....And could control the destiny and outcome of Isla Sorna as strange as that is.....
In the same way they claimed they could control the destiny of Iraq.....
Now one is a science fiction based on the fact dinosaurs were brought back to life.
The other is based off of monopolization of oil by the military, in the same consequence.
In each scenario, mankind seeks to control and profit off of forces they can not understand.
Dinosaurs are used to make a profit, become an attraction, and try to marry science with corporate exploitation.
Oil becomes used as a reason to slaughter dissidents, enslave Nigerians and then marry science with imperialism to control the industry. Again, used in corporate exploitation.
Isn't it fascinating the parallels?
The project of the Lost World failed, and the leaders were destroyed by the very ideal they proposed to control. Its economy collapsed.
In the same way the Iraq Middle East has failed, and the leaders are destroyed by the very ideal they propose to control: Oil. The economy collapses and global warming accelerates beyond all other options.
The same message is presented..... WHEN WILL MAN GET THE MESSAGE, THAT THEY ARE NOT ABOVE "GOD" OR WHATEVER DIVINE MEANING THE WORLD HOLDS?
WHAT WILL IT IN TURN TAKE, TO RECEIVE THAT MESSAGE, AND FOLLOW IT WITH SUCCESS?

Wow. That cartoon kind of hits it on the head.
What has amazed me over the past 5 years has been how quickly our standards for what is acceptable seem to have changed.
The Bush administration has seen crisis after crisis and each one has been at least very arguably, if not very obviously, largely contributed to by Bush administration action or non-action. They seem to consistently do what they shouldn't and not do what they should.
Any one of these crises might have been enough to bring down another administration.
The MSM have had a lot to do with the seeming imperviousness to trouble of the Bush administration, I think, but I'm fairly convinced that there is a deeper sense of trouble in the hearts of Americans, a lurking sense that the American Empire is tottering, an unease that makes all the madness that has been going on somehow less troubling than it might have been otherwise.
Follow the rise and the fall of the American Empire this way: flagship American company?
50's and 60's: GM
70's and 80's: IBM
I think that says it in a nutshell about the Rise and Fall of the New Rome.

Thanks for the cartoon, Brad. Any "This Modern World" is a high point in the day, and I sure LOL'ed at this one.

Way cool cartoon. Way true.
Global warming effecting hurricanes (link here) was another one that they tried but the neoCons didn't get it either.

The WayneMadsenReport.com has some interesting stuff on the recent activities of Neil Bush. He reports that N. Bush has said that IF his learning-impaired child can finish high school that he will become the 50th US president. And, that's the most benign thing WMR has to say about Neil.
I don't know where Madsen gets his info., but it's outrageously detailed and amazing.

HCOCDR, why do you even come here? No one falls for your retarded statements (and you really have to be borderline retarded to even swallow a -little- of the ignorance you spew). No one -ever- accused Shrubman of "causing the huricane", they accused him of being the biggest failing of the people of New Orleans -after- it hit. Get a clue and a life.. what drives someone to be so blatantly ignorant as to keep defending someone like Shrubman? Other than perhaps you are as much a useless human being as him? as much of the problem with the world as him? as much of the blight on the face of all human history as people like you have always been?
News flash, HCOCDR.. Shrubman is an incompetent moron. -ANYONE- that supports him is either ignorant and/or rotten at their core. There really is no other possibility I can see, given screw up after screw up, autrocity after autrocity.. That man isn't fit to lick the shit off my shoes, let alone run a country. And that goes for his "supporters" too.
