    “Missiles…miss Hussein.” Holy crap, I thought they were in the same category as horseshoes and hand grenades. Musta missed by a good country mile, although as it turns out that was likely the whole point: the more missiles fired, and the more they missed, then even more were needed, which enriched the Captains of (Defense) Industries. And their shareholders & stakeholders besides, as well. Like the Bushes, Cheney, et. al.

      Funny story. I was watching CNN on or about April 7, 2003, when this news broke:

      In another high-profile strike, on April 7, a B-1B dropped four 2,000-pound JDAM bombs on a restaurant where Saddam and his two sons were believed to be meeting. Shortly afterward, Vice President Dick Cheney said, “I think we did get Saddam Hussein. He was seen being dug out of the rubble and wasn’t able to breathe.” Someone might have been dug out the rubble; 18 people were killed, but they did not include the Husseins.

      That was when I first fully realized that the neocons had hijacked my country. Their names may have changed but they are still in control. Also in the article:

      Over the course of the war, U.S. air forces mounted 50 so-called “decapitation strikes.” The bombs accidentally killed several dozen civilians who happened to be near the explosions, but they killed none of the Iraqi leaders they were intended to strike.

      Chimpy and Blam-Blam were TOLD Saddam had no WMDs. They also KNEW Saddam had nothing to do with 9/11. But, after all, “He tried to kill my daddy” is a wonderful reason for 4,000+ Americans to die, 100,000 Iraqis to die, and 2,000,000 Iraqis displaced. And it turns out the Iraqi invasion never came close to paying for itself. What great leadership we’ve enjoyed.

        You’ve got to admit that as an eccentric enterprise for a misunderstood artist it is much more dramatic than Chimpy cutting off his own ear.

    Perhaps the weasels Abrams & Bolton might gin up another money making opportunity down
    Venezuela way?

    It would certainly be an opportune time for Eric Prince to reincarnate Blackwater Academi Frontier Services Group (FSG) as both an African AND SA focused grift pit company. With the appropriate kick-backs, n’est-ce pas?

    Not to mention putting more Ameros in Dick “I Shoot My Best Friends” Cheney’s Halliburton.

    What could possibly go wrong…this time?
