A BUZZFLASH EDITORIAL
Okay, BuzzFlash is going to "catapult" some more truth here.
If the Busheviks are so concerned about national security, why are the British intelligence agencies furious that the White House is leaking information that compromises efforts to stop terrorists?
If the Busheviks are so concerned about beating terrorists who Bush says hate us for our liberties and freedom, why is Bush working so aggressively to curtail our liberties and freedoms? Isn't that accomplishing what the terrorists seek as a goal, according to Bush's own words?
If the Busheviks are so concerned about terrorism, why did they abandon the battle against bin-Laden -- despite Bush's vow to catch him dead or alive -- and start a war in a nation state that posed no immediate or imminent terrorist threat to the United States?
If the Busheviks are so concerned about plots such as the alleged ludicrous "terrorist cell" that was allegedly planning to flood lower Manhattan by blowing up a Hudson River tunnel (which could not -- as BuzzFlash was the first media outlet to point out -- cause Wall Street to become flooded due to the laws of gravity), why is Bush ruining our economy for the terrorists by spending hundreds of billions of dollars destroying Iraq and bankrupting our nation? Isn't Bush accomplishing the goal of al-Qaeda to economicaly destroy America? Bush is doing their work for them.
If the Busheviks are so concerened about reducing the number of terrorists, why is it creating more terrorists in Iraq and Lebanon through its alienation of the Muslim population by killing so many civilians and being the cause of the commencement of a civil war in Iraq that is creating terrorists by the minute?
If the Busheviks are so concerned about reducing the number of terrorists, why is it spending hundreds of billions of dollars on destroying nations and killing people rather than spending hundreds of billions of dollars on improving the lives of people and building infrastructure in the nations it is destroying?
If the Busheviks are so concerned about reducing the number of terrorists who make money off of the drug trade, why is Afghanistan having a record-breaking year for harvesting opium, the raw ingredient for heroin?
If the Busheviks are so concerned about reducing the number of terrorists, why are the Taliban making a ferocious comeback in Afghanistan?
BuzzFlash could go on and on. The betrayal of America's national security by the Bush Administration is broad and deep.
The Bush "war on terrorism" is a domestic propaganda campaign for political purposes to achieve unprecedented, anti-Constitutional dictatorial powers. It doesn't exist in reality, except as a failed effort to unilaterally assert the vision of the "Masters of the Universe" in the White House -- and grab as much oil as possible.
It is a "war on terrorism" that only increases terrorism and makes our nation less secure.
Through skillful propaganda, the Busheviks play America for a nation of suckers, while they accomplish the goals of the terrorists for them.
