The collapsing US military & economic empire is making Washington & NATO even more dangerous. US could not beat the Taliban but thinks it can take on China-Russia-Iran...a sign of psychopathology for sure.

I never liked Saddam. Still don't. I know that he was working for the CIA back in his early days and that the U.S. gave Saddam all the names of Iraqi communists and had him kill them. He was our boy.

As UK journalist Robert Fisk says, "We've shut him up. The moment Saddam's hooded executioner pulled the lever of the trapdoor in Baghdad yesterday morning, Washington's secrets were safe. The shameless, outrageous, covert military support which the United States - and Britain - gave to Saddam for more than a decade remains the one terrible story which our presidents and prime ministers do not want the world to remember. And now Saddam, who knew the full extent of that Western support - given to him while he was perpetrating some of the worst atrocities since the Second World War - is dead."

When I saw the pictures of Saddam on TV, with the noose around his neck, I had a sick feeling come over me. All I could think about was that the U.S. had just taken us back further into the dark ages.

Today we read that Saddam was killed on the first day of the Muslim holy days and the outrage around the world is quite severe. My belief is that Bush and his team made the clear decision to string Saddam up during these holy days knowing that it would cause further instability throughout the Middle East.

See, I believe that the Bush pirates want more instability in Iraq and beyond because only then can they begin to try to justify the on-going occupation of Iraq. If they had made all the "right decisions" in the first place, and Iraq today was a model of stability, there would be no excuse for permanent bases there.

And I am convinced to my core that permanent occupation and control of the oil fields is what this is all about.

So those who claim Bush and his team are incompetant and the like are way off the mark. In a sad and sick kind of way, Bush and crew are darkly competant - having created just the nightmarish chaos they intended in the first place.

We've all heard that the generals warned Bush that they needed more troops early on in order to create stability. When Bush and Cheney ignored this expert military advise they knew what would be the result. And it was just what they wanted.

And now today, when Bush has Saddam hung with masked oppositionists cheering his death Bush knows this would further widen the divide inside Iraq and only fuel the already raging civil war.

The reality is America is being controlled by some sick bastards who are not only ruining Iraq but setting us back 50 years here at home as well.

We'd better wake up and smell the coffee. Bush and Cheney are evil if anyone ever was. We need to escalate the calls for impeachment now. Two more years of this insanity will be too much even for us to handle.
