by Tony Peyser

Yeah, Mike was "acting"
This was quite easy to see
He's just a big liar like
That faker Muhammad Ali.

Steven Jonas: Attack on Defense

Steven Jonas, MD, MPH

According to comments made in the past several days by Tony Snow, the US Commander in Iraq, Gen. Casey, US Ambassador to Iraq, Khalilizad, Scott McClellan, and George Bush himself, the Bush Regime has now set forth what they have previously referred to as a "cut and run" strategy for Iraq. That is they have proposed a timetable for American withdrawal and full Iraqi takeover of "security" within the next 18 months or so. Funny how "traitorous, unpatriotic, loser talk about dates certain and scheduled withdrawal" suddenly becomes Georgite policy, but what the hey. It does present the O'RHannibaugh Privatized Ministry of Propaganda with a spin design project of monstrous proportions, but they will figure out a way, I'm sure.

Danny Schechter: Those Vietnam Parallels

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Danny Schechter, MediaChannel.org

Those Vietnam-Iraq parallels are back in the news. Not because the news media has drawn them, or explained why they might be relevant but because one columnist cited one similarity, and President Bush sort of agreed. ...The Voice of America, the government's own propaganda station which calls itself "A trusted source of news and information since 1942" covered the story this way:

Democracy can die a slow death from a thousand cuts, inflicted by a few small men, wielding deadly little knives, drawing blood one drop at a time, on a slumbering people, who take their freedom for granted, and let it slip slowly away.

Martin Luther King Jr. often referred to 11 am on Sunday as "the most segregated hour in America" - his way of highlighting hypocrisy and racial exclusion in Christian churches.

A BUZZFLASH INTERVIEW

There are probably twenty to twenty-five thousand armed mercenaries in Iraq now, a bigger force than any except the U.S. force, by the way. And there are no laws governing them, and nobody’s been arrested for anything. Either you have twenty to twenty-five thousand hired men with guns who are angels, or there’s a huge miscarriage of justice going on. -- Robert Greenwald, director, "Iraq for Sale"

Steven Jonas: So Whassup on Iraq, Jim?

Steven Jonas, MD, MPH

The Georgite Iraq policy is in a spin and the Georgites are spinning it as fast as their spinning wheels can carry them. Why on George Stephanopoulos' show on Oct. 22, 2006, the other George actually said, in response to a question "I never said 'stay the course.'" (I will leave the discussion to my psychiatric colleagues as to whether the guy is consciously lying or just doesn't remember that he did say that a few days, months, and years previously, a problem that end stage alcoholics do have.) We already know that Sen. Warner, a variety of other Republican Senators, none other than the Bush-tool Scott McClellan, and a variety of American active-duty, not retired, Generals are indicating that indeed there is a timetable to American withdrawal or redeployment or something somewhere and that it will begin or perhaps has already begun. The New York Times of Oct. 23 reported that the American command in Baghdad now regards the battle there as the defining one. Since battles can be lost, even by our armed forces, offering such an analysis would indicate that those Generals are preparing some alternate strategy, indeed, to "staying the course," however one might define that intentionally vague "goal" that the Georgites have been foisting on us for the last two years.
