It’s Mission accomplished Day AND the opening of the GWB Library

As of today, this is the 511th post since I started this thing. If you want to download them all…it will take you some time…

111110_HIST_coolidge_portra.jpg.CROP.rectangle3-largeSpeaking of time…I can hardly wait to visit the Geo. W, Bush Library and museum at SMU in Dallas. I really want to know why we went into Iraq and how Iraq became (will become) our ally in the Middle East. Right now, things don’t look really good in the country that gave us the “Garden of Eden” back in the day between the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers, you know meso-potamia. The Kurds in the north are planning a new state, the prime minister Nouri al-Maliki seems to like Iran a lot and the people of that nation feel in 5 or 10 years Iraq will be broken up even more.
None of the contradicting intel is represented  in the library for reasons why we shouldn’t have invaded a sovereign country. The Iraqi dissident known ad “Curve Ball” who gave the CIA detailed descriptions of the mobile chemical weapons labs which turned into a power point in the Security Council was deemed at the time by a State Department interviewer to be “no credible” is only referred to in the interactive decision making theatre as a credible source.

It sounds like a Carl Roveian museum. Have you ever been to a presidential library? There aren’t that many. Poor Calvin Coolidge’s presidential library in Northampton, Massachusetts has to share his memorabilia with a real library, you know, with books and stuff. I wonder at Nixon’s library if there is an interactive screen telling us over and over again “I am not a crook.” Or at the Reagan library I wonder if there is any mention of him raising taxes 11 times during his time in office or the Iran-Contra thing. I think I would like to visit the Bush library as long as I don’t have to pay to see with my own eyes and hear with my own ears all the stuff that was done in my (our) name. Many people have said that George Bush had kept us safe from terrorist attacks during his tenure. The short memory folks overlook September 11, 2001.

Iraq was a snow job with tragic results. To this day I find no credible reason why the press dropped the ball and we Americans bought it hook line and sinker like a huge ocean bass. Today I hear drums in the distance marching us back to middle East. I hope it’s a hologram and not real.

and so it goes…
