Stating The Obvious

When I first started reading this article I thought "what a barking moonbat" as if I'm not one myself. Once you get past the beginning she makes a lot of sense and she has the background to back up her assertions. Blood for oil, now where have I heard that before?

Ever since September 11 I have been fascinated by the lack of imagination in the Pentagon and the Defense Department. Everybody was so stunned that they had to call Tom Clancy for help. Too bad they didn't read a little Patrick Robinson along the way, then China might not be such a surprise. Yes, while we have been busy getting bogged down in Iraqnam, the Dragon has been busily at work building her economy ...and her military. While Bush, Cheney and the rest of the crew without a clue mistakenly pride themselves on the extremely mythical defense of our country, the rest of the world has actually been bolstering their defenses, not wasting them in a massive clustermuck that can't possibly have a positive outcome.

Does anybody actually believe that Bush has any intention of bringing the troops home during his reign? The NY Times is printing what the White House wants to see. Again. Survey says, whatever the surveyor wants. The only way those troop numbers are coming down is because of an increase of the dead and injured. Sigh. Are we ever going to have true investigative journalism again? Or does the press only investigate sex stories?
