The “global democratic revolution” is the center piece of the Bush presidency. While a revolutionary
spirit was the focus that moved our Founding Fathers to break with the Crown, today’s all powerful imperial empire resides
in the United States. King George II says he is on a hallowed mission to save the Middle East from themselves. Democracy will
be the cure and the medicine of approved regime changes will be forced down their throats. Women will be made participatory
citizens and the shahs of Islamic extremism will be tamed into submissive puppets. Ah, the ‘Pox Americana’
spreads the virus of emancipation with the fervor of an old time religion.
But what kind of faith moves this evangelism? An all consuming belief in the superiority of Democracy has
certainly served America well! We have unelected and unaccountable federal judges decreeing that babies can be squashed, when
a self centered tart gets a headache. That’s certainly consistent with liberation of the defenseless . . . Spreading
this practice will have the benefit of curtailing the government schooling dominion. This will leave more money to fuel the
occupation seminaries as conversion to a higher order is enforced.
It should be obvious that we can no longer tolerate dictatorships that pray to the East. How can you indulge
weird talking Muslims who don’t fish at Kennebunkport during the summer? Exporting acceptable practices through an exchange
program might well turn those mirages into seas of good fishing. Trawling the dunes and sands would be a good exercise to
teach the skills for netting flounders.
Transforming the Middle East would be a central staging ground for finishing the assignment of a New World
make over. Just imagine, Bush will create a fantasy planet that would make John Lennon proud.
Imagine there's no countries,
It isn’t hard to do,
Nothing to kill or die for,
No religion too,
Imagine all the people living life in peace...
All those contentious countries will be provided with THE script for constitutional governance and the rule
of law. There will be no need to place your trust in a higher power, since that force; will be the deliverance. Democracy
the Desired Doctrine! That’s the answer, no need to look for any other promise.
Bush portrayed himself as a champion of liberty setting out a "forward strategy of freedom in the Middle East".
Hark, Bush speaks:
"Iraqi democracy will succeed and that success will send forth the news from Damascus to Tehran that freedom
can be the future of every nation".
"The establishment of a free Iraq at the heart of the Middle East will be a watershed event in the global
Don’t you feel all warm inside - safe and secure - with such leadership? Woodrow Wilson taught his course
well, the Bush clan has the drill down, and we will all reap the aftermath of the generosity from internationalism. Forget
the lessons that the British Empire learned in India, the endowment of the last superpower will subdue any disenchanted tribes.
The Middle East will be transformed into a Bastar district, a “melting pot” of races and cultures. Oh yes, this model works so good at home
that we can hope to have Jessie Jackson bargain affirmative action for the Kurds. Look how well democracy operates, shake
downs can fund a sons political career! Hey, the community voted, so the will of the people must be prevailing.
Just wonder what would happen when Baath Party remnants want to be put on the ballot? Sorry; that could never
be, the re-education machine will protect from such an occurrence. Now that Iraqi oil is flowing Saudi resistance can be condemned.
President Bush; surely family ruling dynasties aren’t acceptable in a Democracy? Your father never expected to follow
in the footsteps of Prescott! Glad that having the ability to vote protects us from having an American version of King
Fahd. No home grown Mattoids for us.
When Bush cites countries such as Bahrain, Oman, Qatar, Morocco and Jordan as examples of democratic progress
in the Middle East, he is really saying they are conforming to the Bush program. The criteria that is being used is whether
a country will fall in line with the NeoCon colonialism. If they accept invasion of a neighboring state as a legitimate intervention,
then the fruits of a communal democracy, will flow to the coffers of an autocrat who promises to reform his regime.
The ramifications of the arrogance of the Bush doctrine will haunt our country for decades. The sobriety of
George II is in question - has he been hitting the bottle again? Probably not, but the national hangover will not be relieved
with a swift end to his administration. That noble method for self government - federal elections - will never allow a true
alternative to internationalism. How long will public opinion continue to support such an insane foreign policy? Well; what
can one conclude, when a society so willingly accepts the destruction of their own civil liberties. The likes of the Patriot
Act are the results of this precious Democracy. No wonder the elites are so eager for exportation of the expropriation model
