Some Fake News and Some Real News
President Bush is to have said to say that he, "Would have asked the Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama National Guard to help in the hurricane Katrina relief effort but unfortunately thousands of them are stationed in Iraq and are otherwise disposed."
This is an obvious fake quote made up by yours truely, however, it is not too far from the truth. The National Guard is meant to protect the home front and is specifically trained to handle disaster relief efforts not fight in deceptive never-ending wars.
I think that there is some tragic irony in the fact that Bush was at one time "in" the Alabama National Guard and now the current guard is too "otherwise disposed" in his war in Iraq (aprox. 1,500) to fully respond to the needs of the citizens in their home state! No worries, however, they are taking care of the needs (or are they?) of the Iraqi citizens thousands of miles from the home front they are supposed to protect. Again, great, GREAT planning King George!!!
Speaking of the 51st state of the union (Iraq) the highest ranking Sunni Muslim Arab (who happens to be one of the two vice-presidents and a moderate) is now severly critizing the "constitution."
Ho hum though, right? Freedom is still on the march, april, june, july and on and on an on we still march. Wait a minute? What was it again we are marching in Iraq for? Oh yeah, freedom to oppress the Sunni minority in Iraq by the other ethnic groups. O.k, I'm back on track now Sergeant.
I heard on the radio this afternoon that a returning Iraqi war vet went to "Camp Casey" in Crawford and was shown the "bird" on several occasions by counter-demostrators who supposedly "support the troops." I guess nothing says "I support the troops" like flying the middle finger in soldiers faces. Kind of ironic how it was many liberals (shamefully) who flipped off returning Vietnam vets and now the shoe is on the other foot. Hmmm. I'm sure there is some great message in there to flush out but I'm tired and hungry so i am going to leave you all now.
