Readers React on Bush's Power
October 23, 2006
Editor's Note: Below are
readers' comments about the expanding authority being claimed by George
W. Bush and the continuing manipulation of intelligence in the "war on
What "any person"
means, as you've already figured out [See "Who
Is 'Any Person' in Tribunal Law"], is that the sort of 'dirty war'
fought by the Argentine junta against its own citizens, as well as
countless other examples of bloody scapegoating and pathological
nationalism run amok (calling it by its truer name would feature the
word sadism), will for the most part be legal when perpetrated by the
govt. of the United States of America, at least until the Supreme Court
or other powerful interested parties intercede.
This most heinous of crimes, the persecution and murders of one's own
fellow citizens, is what the shielding of our leaders from 'war crimes'
may mostly be about. It's Condor come home, it's inevitable ultimate
target all along.
The struggle now begins in earnest.
The Military Science Axiom-- "A Defensive Strategy Cannot Win A War",
ignored in Nam, is being followed in Iraq-
just at Hitler followed it in Russia. The American Direct approach
cannot defeat the Muslim Indirect approach, unless the entire region
is depopulated (via D.U. and Bunker Buster Nukes on Iran ). In March
2003 Shock& Awe spiked radiation levels in London! If US nukes Iran,
we will have commited mass murder: moral suicide.
This article [Carla Binion's "Bush's
Absolute Power Grab
"] was to the point and on target. I will be
brief. We know the old saying about absolute power corrupting
absolutely and that has happened with this idiot. He is now drunk on
it and I am far from convinced he is a reformed anything. My next
fear: Martial Law. Here. Before he is out of office. Keep up the great
work for this site is a daily read.

Do you really think
that Bush thinks that Osama wants us to withdraw from Iraq? ["Giving
Osama What He Really Wants"] Or is that just one more excuse to keep
us in Iraq and solidify America's control of that part of the world in
her inexorable march toward a U.S.-dominated world empire (the ultimate
Goal of Hitler and the Nazis)?
