Afghanistan or Afghanistan: You Decide 2008Submitted by JKap on Fri, 09/26/2008 - 23:30
McBomba and O'Cain agreed on a lot, like the "next conflict" (Obomba's expression) with Afghanistan and Pakistan. Both tended to speak in vague generalities and used a lot of misleading and otherwise trivial figures. Both emphasized "protecting the economy" with the Big Brother socialization of the economy as outlined in their Joint Statement on the Bush "Bailout"--although it was not directly discussed of course.
Both agreed that Iran had to stop it's nuke program, despite the fact that the NIE on Iran indicated that it was not building a nuclear weapon as of mid-2007 and that Israel is our BFF (best friend forever).
Both tried to tweak the heart-strings of their red-blue psychologically-programmed robo-voters with folksy "I heart the troops" tales.
Iraq was primarily a contentious "football issue", with little doubt that both War Party frontmen would remain committed to maintaining an occupying force in that U.S. Military Prefecture for "as long as it takes".
I noticed that Obomba used the expression "axis of evil"--wasn't sure if that was in jest or what.
Mcbomba invoked the imagery of the much reviled "suitcase nuke."
O'Cain invoked the 9/11 Commission and touted the cover-up as an "investigation", thanking Joe Lieberman, and had the nerve to invoke the mention of the victims families who were so instrumental in bringing about the 9/11 Commission, against staunch opposition from the Bush Administration, 441 days after the attacks. (see: Jersey Girls, see: 9/11 Press for Truth, see: In Their Own Words). 70% of the 9/11 Commission Family Steering Committee questions remain unanswered.
Obomba referring to Iraq: "that is where all of our resources have gone" as if no resources had gone to the $1 Trillion-a-year global military empire.
I noticed that both stooges of the NWO employed the euphemism of "borrow from China" as a platitude for excessive debt blamed on Bush, neglecting any mention of the Federal Reserve and how our benevolent Congressional junkies appropriate money that is "borrowed" from their Fed druglords who transmogrify the counterfeit currency used for the machinations of empire.
Somewhere George W. Bush is smiling.
This is a good time to make a contribution to your favorite third-party candidate.
