Homeland Insecurity?

For your own protection, all Americans of middle-eastern descent (and those with olive-colored skin, just to be sure) report to internment camps as soon as possible. Unfortunately, former Japanese internees are likely to sympathize with the new Arab ones so I think we'll need to re-intern them too, just to be safe. Meanwhile, back at the ranch, George Bush is using nothing more than his mental powers to line up support from world leaders. Turkey would be a good example of this. They feel so threatened by Saddam Hussien that something like 98% of the country is against going to war and they want nearly $30 billion from us for the privilege of protecting them. Turkey says it might need to invade Iraq too, but just to carve out a "security belt" for the protection of war refugees and to maintain stability. If any Kurds are killed, I'm sure it'll only be those unstable ones.

Manifest Destiny. I'm not sure what to think of those people who criticize our glorious leader, George Bush. He has been demonstrating genuine leadership and some real imagination with the economy. If you haven't written a letter to the editor yet extolling his virtues then you probably belong in one of those internment camps too. Sure, you might be cynical enough to think we're not going to war with Iraq for strictly altruistic reasons but you better keep it to yourself, buddy. You know why? Because if you're not with George Bush, you're with the terrorists. He's a uniter not a divider.

A Better Hitler Analogy? So we're going to invade Iraq in order to liberate them and give them democracy. That sounds like a pretty admirable goal so let us forget for a moment that it's been tried in the past and didn't work so well. What I'm wondering is, after we leave, who is this overwhelmingly Muslim nation going to elect? Nevermind, I'm just being silly. I'm sure it'll be someone who loves America. Anyway, if it's not someone we like we can always liberate them again.

i can't believe that u actually bought that the US government's sole goal is to "liberate" Iraq, instead, look at it from this angle: (notice, US government not citizens)
