You want Proof? You can't handle the proof!

"Some of the most powerful IEDs we're seeing in Iraq today include components that come from Iran,"
-- George W. Bush, March 16, 2006

Not a surprising statement from Dubya, right? And Bush isn't the only one claiming this. Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld said last week that Iranian Revolutionary Guard personnel had been inside Iraq.

Wow...pretty frightening accusations, huh? The ramifications of the Iranian government sending weapons and soldiers into Iraq to fight the invading Americans would be huge. No way Bush and Rummy would say anything like that unless they had solid proof, right?

*rolls eyes*

When asked whether the United States has proof that Iran's government was behind these developments, Marine Corps Gen. Peter Pace, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, while standing RIGHT NEXT TO DONALD RUMSFELD, said, "I do not, sir."

I repeat...

The top U.S. military officer said on Tuesday the United States does not have proof that Iran's government is responsible for Iranians smuggling weapons and military personnel into Iraq. it just me, or have we seen something like this before?

*makes futuristic flashback sounds*
Doodeedoooeeeeeoooooo Doodeedoooeeeeeooooo
*stops making sounds*

"The British government has learned that Saddam Hussein recently sought significant quantities of uranium from Africa. Our intelligence sources tell us that he has attempted to purchase high-strength aluminum tubes suitable for nuclear weapons production."
-- George W. Bush, January, 2003, State of the Union Address

Ok, how many times can the President of the United States blatantly lie to the American public before said public gets completely and totally FED UP?

Are we truly a nation of mindless sheep who rely solely on soundbites from Fox News to tell us what to think???

Recent polls seem to be FINALLY reporting that we are not. But given the events of the last five years...and the dominance of American apathy, I don't have much hope.


Anyway, we're headed to Anchorage for the weekend to attend a symphony concert, so there probably won't be any updates until Monday. That will give you all a little break from my political tirades.

I hope you all have as much fun this weekend as these guys
did singing "YATTA".
