How stupid does little Bush think we are? The answer is: pretty damned stupid.

That's the only conclusion possible after hearing him try to claim that the winding down of his "surge" escalation of 30,000 additional troops represents a "new" strategy of reducing American troops in Iraq.

Cindy Sheehan: Arrest Bush, Not Rev

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Cindy Sheehan

On the day of the General David ("ass kissing little chickens**t"---Adm Fallon, Commander of CENTCOM) Petraeus and Ambassador Ryan Crocker did their puppet show for Congress, my daughter, Carly, felt ill so we didn't get a chance to get there early enough to obtain one of the tickets for the miserly 37 seats allocated for the public in the hearing room.

In early 2004, after my second visit to Iraq, several peace organizations proposed solutions to the war in that country that examined the military, political, and economic aspects of the conflict. It was based on extensive involvement and visits with most of the warring parties -- religious, ethnic, social, "occupation" -- and, like the recommendations of the Iraq Study Group, factored in regional history and today's geopolitics.

Subject: PetraeBusH Quagmire Surge Gains Traction

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by David Michael Green

I was thinking about becoming a Republican the other day.

No, really, I was! Ya know, the money's good. And you don't have to share. And you don't really have to care about the impact of what you do, or what people think of you. Rich, selfish, carefree. That's not such a bad life, is it?

Karl Rove originally set out to establish the Permanent Republican Majority (PRM), his version of The Thousand Year Reich. The combination of Bush's foreign military and domestic economic policies have likely put an end to any hope for the Georgites to achieve that goal in the foreseeable future. However, for a variety of reasons, a Permanent Republican Presidency (PRP) is very much achievable. Working for whomever the Republican nominee is (and I still think it will be Giuliani), Rove will remain heavily invested in achieving this goal.

BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE

George Bush has now earned another title -- “The Revisionist” -- Doing to History What He Did to Iraq.” Bush’s version of history is a tad off the truth of it all!!! But then, what can you expect from a guy who has a real need to change the facts in order to try and garner support for his illegal war?

The case to still fight this war
Is no longer compelling; it
Is time to leave, not make yet
Another attempt at selling it.

Peter Michaelson: Bush's Disorder

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Peter Michaelson

I was sitting down at my breakfast nook to savor a cup of Peet's coffee enhanced with half and half when I noticed a raging maniac with fire in his eyes staring at me, while a devil emerged from his nose. The maniac was wearing horn-rimmed glasses, and the yellow devil had a red wormy tongue and was glaring, I swear, at Iran on a globe of the world that was stuck in the maniac's mouth. This image was on the cover of Erich Fromm's The Anatomy of Human Destructiveness, originally published in 1970 and resting beside my coffee.
