From the marvelous Morialekafa:
How long is the Republican party going to continue to support and defend the war criminals in their midst?
The pre-emptive "war" on Iraq was clearly a war crime. Torturing is a war crime. Hiding people from the Red Cross is a war crime. War profiteering is a war crime. Killing civilians is a war crime. Using white phosphorous on individuals is a war crime. Rendition is a war crime.
Can anyone deny that the Bush/Cheney administration is not guilty of all of these, and more? It seems to me this is quite clear.
It is also quite clear that lying to Congress and the American Public to start a "war" against a sovereign nation that is no threat to you, if not a war crime, is certainly impeachable.
So why do Republicans continue to support and defend these criminals? Does that not make them complicit in war crimes? Do they really believe they can escape unscathed from what they have done? Don't they realize this is a cancer that will eventually totally destroy their party if they don't take some action against it?
Or is it just me that thinks this? Maybe that's it. I am just out of touch with reality. They didn't really do all of these terrible things. It is all just my imagination.
I guess it is all my imagination that DeLay, Frist, Abramhof, Rove, Libby, et al, are all in trouble one way or another. The "war" in Iraq is really going well. Osama bin Laden is no longer a person of interest, New Orleans is being efficiently rebuilt, the national debt doesn't really matter, global warming is just an urban myth, the price of gasoline is going to return to 35 cents a gallon soon, the Iraqis are going to have a democratic government, we do not torture, and god is still talking with George W. Bush so all is well.
Is it just my imagination, too, that the world comes to a stop on Friday and then starts up again on Monday? I remember once seeing that a notice appeared one day on the bulletin board of some girl's school that said, "tomorrow is cancelled due to lack of interest." That is what I think goes on now in American culture: "the week-end has been cancelled due to lack of interest."
I also remember seeing graffiti once on the bathroom wall of a very strange bar that read, "help save Peter Rabbit, please help." That is how I feel at the moment.
