??? Two Moments of Sincerity, Two Instants of Lucidity ???
Terror In Baghdad and 43 dead in Iraq - most of them Iraqis.
Meanwhile ...... (and not back at the Crawford Ranch)
Tuesday 28 October 2003
"We’re in an insurrectionary situation with people who strike and run. We didn’t think that it would be so intense and so long. We’re still at war.” This is about Iraq. The man who describes it this way is no savage opponent of the Bush administration. It’s Colin Powell, the U.S. Secretary of State. And he was speaking before the five suicide attacks perpetrated Monday October 27 right in the heart of the Iraqi capital!
Do we succeed in capturing, killing, and dissuading more terrorists every day than the Madrassahs and religious radicals recruit, train, and send against us?Must we establish a large and concerted plan to stop the next generation of terrorists?” In sum and in substance: aren’t we busy magisterially deluding ourselves? That question is posed by one of the pillars of the Bush administration, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld.
But ... never fear, Captain America assured us just this morning ... the
increased terrorist attacks signals their desperation at our success.
Watch out Dubya, your cape is on fire!
