‘W’ still is for ‘Worst’

US Presidents George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush,shake hands at the dedication for the George W. Bush Presidential Center in Texas

The two George Bushes yuk it up at the dedication of the George W. Bush Presidential Center, which contains a library and a museum, in Dallas today.

It’s interesting that we supposedly now are “re-evaluating” the unelected reign of George W. Bush in the White House on the occasion of the impending (May 1) public opening of his library and museum in Dallas — which, I’m guessing, consists of coloring books, connect-the-dot books, and, of course, many copies of The Pet Goat, and maybe such relics as aluminum tubes and that vial of white powder that were used to justify the Vietraq War, and maybe that dog leash that was on that Iraqi prisoner at Abu Ghraib. (The original plans for World Trade Center: The Ride and the Hurricane-Katrina-themed water park next door to the library and museum were nixed for maybe sending the wrong messages.)

Will any of Gee Dubya’s amateurish paintings be put on display at his museum? It’s funny — Adolf Hitler was a bad artist before he became a fascistic dictator, and Gee Dubya pulled a Reverse Adolf, first becoming a fascistic dictator and then becoming an awful artist.

Seriously — what to say about a presidency that began with a blatantly stolen presidential election (replete with George W. Bush’s brother Jeb in the role of the governor of the pivotal state of Florida and Florida’s chief elections officer, Katherine Harris, making damn sure that Gee Dubya “won” the state) and that ended with our national economic collapse (including a federal budget surplus turned into a record federal budget deficit)?

Between those two lovely bookends were 9/11 (despite the August 6, 2001 presidential daily brief titled “Bin Laden Determined to Strike in U.S.” [which, in Bush’s defense, he might not even have skimmed, since he was on vacation at his ranch in Crawford, Texas, at the time]); the launch of the illegal, immoral, unjust and unprovoked Vietraq War in March 2003, using 9/11 as the pretext; all that came with the Vietraq War, such as the thousands upon thousands of Iraqi civilians and American military personnel slaughtered for nothing except for Dick Cheney’s Halliburton’s war profiteering, such as the Abu Ghraib House of Horrors, and such as the bogus war’s massive drain on the U.S. Treasury; and Hurricane Katrina, which struck Louisiana and other Gulf Coast states on August 29, 2005 (the same day that Bush was sharing birthday cake with John McCainosaurus in Arizona), and killed around 2,000 Americans, most of whom were black and so who were expendable.

(If you want a more exhaustive list of George W. Bush’s Greatest Hits, see AlterNet.org’s “50 Reasons You Despised George W. Bush’s Presidency: A Reminder on the Day of His Presidential Library Dedication.”)

The eight, very long George W. Bush years to me were like a series of national rapes. Never before had a president who had lost the popular vote nonetheless been coronated president by the right-wing U.S. Supreme Court that ruled that it was most expedient to stop recounting the ballots in Florida and just declare a “victor” already.

So raped did I feel over this, the largest blow to democracy in my lifetime, that I attended a “Not My President Day” protest rally on Presidents’ Day in early 2001 at the California State Capitol. Not long enough after that, I attended another protest rally at the state Capitol, this one over the impending launch of the obviously bogus Vietraq War in March 2003.

That is the only good/“good” thing that I can say about the George W. Bush years: That the unelected Bush regime’s stunning incompetence and its criminal and treasonous acts and failures to act made me more political than I’d ever been before — indeed, to the point that shortly before the Bush regime launched its Vietraq War, I started to blog in the fall of 2002, and I was more involved in the 2004 presidential election than I’d ever been involved in any presidential election before or since.

I get it that there are certain individuals out there who, because they identify so much with the Repugnican Tea Party, never will admit the colossal failure that was the George W. Bush presidency.

That’s fine. They can, and will, remain in their delusion and lies.

The rest of us, however, know and never will forget that there isn’t enough lipstick on the planet to put on the pig that was the unelected, treasonous reign of our own former mass-murdering dictator*, George W. Bush.

*A dictator, by my definition, is someone who did not receive the majority of the votes but who takes office through intimidation or even physical force anyway.

Bogus warfare is the real pisser

Video grab taken from an undated YouTube video showing what is believed to be US Marines urinating on the bodies of dead Taliban soldiers in Afghanistan

Reuters image

In this viral video grab, four U.S. Marines reportedly are shown urinating (or pretending to urinate?) on the bodies of at least three vanquished members of the Taliban in Afghanistan. But Repugnican Tea Party presidential wannabe Rick Perry has a problem with gays serving in the U.S. military. (Of course, whipping it out in front of other dudes and looking at their goods too seems a bit gay to me…)

So apparently some U.S. Marines urinated on Taliban corpses in Afghanistan. On video. After the Abu Ghraib Little Shop of Horrors (which was perpetrated by just a few bad apples, you know), this should come as no surprise, and I’m confident that it’s only one of many such episodes that we’ll never find out about.

The self-serving, U.S.-Treasury-draining traitors who comprise the military-industrial complex assure us that we have our troops in the Middle East for our (the taxpayers’) protection against terrorism, but of course viral videos of U.S. Marines urinating on the corpses of Middle Easterners whom they’ve just slaughtered makes us much more likely, not less likely, to be targets of future (attempted) acts of terrorism.

I find it darkly hilarious, though, to hear anyone assert that dead people should be respected by not being urinated upon. Gee, it seems to me that that much, much larger crime is to have snuffed out the individual whose sovereign nation you have invaded in the first place. I mean, about the last thing that a corpse has to worry about is being urinated upon.

What Goldenshowergate has to teach us is not that our stormtroopers shouldn’t piss on the dead (although, of course, they should not). What the scandal emphasizes (as did the Abu Ghraib prison scandal) is that we have no fucking reason to remain in Afghanistan, the graveyard of empires, in the first fucking place.

It’s bullshit that — as happened with Abu Ghraib — we solely blame the young men (and sometimes young women) in the U.S. military whose juvenile actions further tarnish the international reputation of our nation, but that we allow the treasonous war profiteers who put these young people in places they never should have been put in the first place to get away scot-free.

And nor should we let off the hook the enablers of the treasonous war profiteers, which would include, of course, President Barack Obama, whose hands, despite his relentless promises of “hope” and “change,” are covered in the blood of scores of innocent people of the Middle East.

P.S. The Associated Press surreally notes: “A presidential statement described the act as ‘completely inhumane’ and called on the U.S. military to punish the Marines.”

Again: Apparently, according to the Bushbama administration, it’s perfectly OK to slaughter someone, but to then urinate on his or her body is “completely inhumane.”

And again, the White House wants peons punished while those who actually are responsible for our bogus, illegal, immoral wars in the first place go unpunished and unscathed — indeed, they keep laughing all the way to the bank with billions and billions and billions and billions of our tax dollars.

P.P.S. My bad: The AP story that I linked to in my “P.S.” above very apparently was reporting on a statement made by Afghan President Hamid Karzai, not on a statement made by Obama. (What a disingenuous statement by the treasonous Karzai, however, who sold his nation out to its Western occupiers and overlords long ago.)

However, the fact remains that the so-called outrage that we’re seeing in the U.S. over the incident isn’t about the fact that our stormtroopers are slaughtering people, but that they urinated on their kill. And hell, even that probably isn’t what bothers most Americans — what bothers most Americans, probably, is only that the highly unflattering video was leaked…

And indeed, while we can expect the peons (um, should we say “pee-ons”?) of the Marines to be punished for the video, those responsible for the fact that the Marines were there to pee on slaughtered people will get off scot-free, no doubt, and President Bushbama still is the world’s war criminal in chief.

P.P.P.S. The video can be seen here. In the video I can see only two of the Marines, the one at the far left and the one who is second from right, apparently actually urinating, and I believe that it is the one on the far left who quips in a high voice, “Have a great day, buddy!” The other two Marines seem to have shy kidney or are just pretending to pee. One of them, toward the end of the clip, makes reference to a “golden shower,” ha ha ha ha ha.

Pissing on other dudes — Jesus, are all of our Marines a bunch of closet cases, even though they can be out of the closet now?

Wake me up on September 12

— or, of course, one of the many wonderful images that came out of Abu Ghraib (which I think is Arabic for “a few bad apples”) prison in Vietraq, like this unforgettable gem, circa 2004:

File:Abu-ghraib-leash.jpg

Seriously, though, no nation does rank hypocrisy and self-righteousness like the “Christian” United States of America does rank hypocrisy and self-righteousness. We! Are! Number! One!

So the 9/11 decennial already has begun, with cheesy (redundant…) 9/11-related retrospective pieces already having been appearing in the mainstream media, but the worst of it should come next week, as the 10th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001, approaches.

As Ted Rall points out, we Americans have learned virtually nothing from 9/11, and this is evident from the woe-is-us fest that we’re seeing now.

And as Glenn Greenwald (also) points out, of course part of the self-serving, mawkish 9/11 commemoration that we won’t see is any official mention of the fact that the U.S. government first supported (and armed) the likes of Saddam Hussein and Osama bin Laden before it declared them enemies or any official mention of the tens of thousands of innocent Iraqis whom the United States slaughtered in the illegal, immoral, unjust and unprovoked Vietraq War, which the unelected Bush regime launched in March 2003 using 9/11 as a pretext, even though not a single one of the 19 9/11 hijackers was an Iraqi (15 of them, in fact, were from Saudi Arabia, as was Osama bin Laden, but the U.S. power elites and the Saudi power elites remain great oily buddies).

Greenwald concludes his piece by noting that

… the fact that victims of American violence over the last two decades have easily outweighed, and continue to outweigh, those of the Dictators and Terrorists whom we so vocally despise is nonetheless an extremely important fact that should shape our understanding of 9/11. But as usual, that’s another fact that will be “left unsaid” [in the 9/11 decennial commemorations].

What 9/11 signifies most for me is nothing like American victimhood, since the United States hardly can claim to be a victimized nation (9/11 was only blowback for longstanding U.S. oppression in the Middle East), or “patriotism” (which is just jingoism or fascistic nationalism), but it marks the lost decade of 2000 through 2009.

That decade started out swimmingly, with the blatantly stolen presidential election of 2000. What possibly could have gone wrong by just allowing a bunch of right-wing, pro-plutocratic, pro-corporate chickenhawks to steal the White House?

Then there was 9/11, then there was the Vietraq War, then there was Hurricane Katrina in August 2005 — which the unelected Bush regime was prepared for as well as it had been prepared for 9/11 (recall the August 2001 presidential daily briefing titled “Bin Laden Determined to Strike in U.S.”, and forecasters had predicted Katrina’s landfall at least two days in advance) — and then there was Barack Obama promising “hope” and “change” to a weary, Bush-whacked nation in 2008.

In 2009, with the White House, the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate all in Democratic/“Democratic” hands — his best opportunity to push through a progressive agenda — what did President Hopey-Changey accomplish? Jack fucking squat. And in 2010? Ditto.

And now we are in 2011 and where are we? We are pretty much right back where we were back in 2000: the Repugnican (Tea) Party presidential frontrunner is the Big-Oil-ass-lickin’, “Christo”fascist-lovin’, dipshit governor of Texas, and the Democratic presidential candidate will be a reportedly intellectual (“elitist” in “tea party”-speak) but rather uncharismatic guy who has been in Washington for a little while now.

And yes, I can see another Texas governor going to the White House in January 2013, whether he steals it and Americans just fucking let him, a la 2000, or whether he actually wins the 2012 presidential election fairly and squarely.  Americans are that fucking stupid.

But can they — we — survive two lost decades in a row?

Fuck. Maybe I should have titled this “Wake me up in 2021.”

DINO Reid joins anti-Muslim crusade

Top US senator opposes mosque near Ground Zero

AFP photo

As a religious minority — a Mormon — you’d think that U.S. Sen. Harry Reid, the top Democrat in the U.S. Senate, would know something about religious discrimination. But hey, it’s an election year, and dog-piling upon Muslims is all the rage right now — and seems to be that long-sought “bipartisanship.”

“The First Amendment protects freedom of religion. [Politician X] respects that, but thinks that the mosque [that is proposed to be established near the former World Trade Center] should be built someplace else.”

You’d think that of course Politician X would be a Repugnican, but nope — in this case, Politician X is Democrat in name only U.S. Sen. Harry Reid of Nevada, whose spokesweasel today declared: “The First Amendment protects freedom of religion. Senator Reid respects that, but thinks that the mosque should be built someplace else.”

Someone please, please explain to me how in one breath one can claim to respect freedom of religion but in the very next breath proclaim that a religious group should not establish a place of worship.

I understand that Harry Reid is trying to keep his U.S. Senate seat against wingnut dingbat Sharron “Second Amendment Remedies” Angle, who as a “Christo”fascist of course opposes the establishment of the mosque in lockstep with the rest of her tea-baggin’ ilk, but he should have kept his fucking mouth shut.

To shit and piss upon a minority group is a despicable way to try to win election or re-election. It’s what the fucking Repugnicans do, for fuck’s sake.

And on the same day that Reid announces, for political gain, that he opposes the establishment of a Muslim center near the former World Trade Center, a scandal breaks in which it is revealed that a former Israeli soldier posted humiliating images of Palestinian prisoners on her Facebook page. It’s a bit of Abu Ghraib deja vu for me.

Where do these young people, like the female Israeli soldier and the American personnel of Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq learn their anti-Arab and anti-Muslim sentiment?

From their “leaders.”

Harry Reid has just contributed to anti-Arab and anti-Muslim sentiment that might have real-world consequences, such as acts of discrimination and perhaps even abuse (or worse) against Arabs and/or Muslims — treatment that makes some members of this fairly universally mistreated group commit acts of revenge that we Americans call “terrorism” (because it’s never called “terrorism” when an American or an Israeli does it to an Arab or a Muslim) and then scratch our heads and ponder, “But why, why do they hate us so much?”

Words have consequences, Harry. You’re supposed to be a fucking national leader. You fucking suck ass.

Harry Reid is a fucking Mormon. I fucking hate the Mormon cult. While no Muslim to my knowledge ever has infringed upon my rights, my right to marry my boyfriend is now tied up in the federal courts because of the Mormon cult’s multi-million-dollar promotion of anti-same-sex-marriage Proposition H8.

But does Harry Reid want to be discriminated against because of his fucked-up religion? No, I’m sure he fucking doesn’t. I’m sure that he wants the full protection under law of the Mormon cult, which, speaking of law, should have had its tax-exempt status revoked already for its illegal, immoral and unethical political activity.

Why, then, as a member of a lunatic fringe that itself has been the victim of religious persecution in the past, does Reid feel that it’s perfectly OK for him to shit and piss upon Muslims?

Again, Reid could have and should have kept his mouth shut on the issue of the establishment of the Muslim center in Manhattan, which is quite far removed from his home state of Nevada, and which, under the First Amendment, isn’t even for the people of Manhattan to decide; religious freedom is not subject to a popular fucking vote. I agree wholeheartedly with the Huffington Post blogger who declared, “I can’t believe we are even discussing this.”

Oh, but we are. It’s election season, and therefore it’s wide open season on the relatively defenseless minority groups. Even babies. Babies.

Again, I expect this kind of evil from the Repugnican Tea Party, but Harry Reid has crossed the line.

I can’t see that it much matters who wins in Nevada in November: Reid or Angle.

They’re both haters, both members of the duopolistic parties that increasingly are looking more and more alike in their mad dash to the rock bottom.*

*The Associated Press reports:

A spokesman for Republican Sharron Angle, Reid’s opponent, said Muslims have the right to worship anywhere, but Obama’s support for construction of the mosque at ground zero “ignored the wishes of the American people, this time at the expense of victims of 9/11 and their families.”

Please tell me how Reid’s public position on the subject is substantially any different from Angle’s.

Again, freedom of religion is a constitutional guarantee not a matter to be put up for a fucking vote.

Back to the future

File:AbuGhraibAbuse-standing-on-box.jpg

File:Abu Ghraib prison abuse.jpg

No, we never truly atoned for the Abu Ghraib House of Horrors. Instead, we swept it under the rug, because being an American means never having to say that you’re sorry, much more actually atoning for your sins. Maybe next month’s release of even hundreds more images of the abuse of detainees at the hands of their American military “liberators” under the command of the unelected, mass-murdering Bush regime will force the United States of America to finally atone for its sins against those it claimed it was “liberating.” 

I haven’t said much on the whole issue of torture, because what is there to say?

Torture is wrong. (Always. If you call yourself a Christian, as most Repugnicans do, ask yourself whom Jesus, himself a victim of torture — and a victim of the death penalty, which the Repugnicans also overwhelmingly support — would torture.)

Torture is criminal. Criminals — all criminals, not just poor, non-white, non-Repugnican, non-powerful criminals — should be pr0secuted, fairly and appropriately, for their crimes.

I have hesitated to write about the torture issue, I think, because I’ve thought that the whole issue is so complicated, with so many legal twists and turns, that I, a non-lawyer, couldn’t really illuminate the issue of torture. But is torture really that complicated an issue? Do the paragraphs above not pretty much sum it up?

The bottom line is that the United States of America cannot go forward as a nation until and unless as a nation it acknowledges its sins of the past. Really acknowledges. Which means not just paying lip-service acknowledgment, but really examining the national wrongs that were committed — and committing ourselves to never allow these wrongs to happen again.*

We, as a nation, never did that with the Vietraq War. We, as a nation, never have have apologized to the Iraqi people for having allowed our unelected, mass-murdering dictator, George W. Bush, and his henchpeople illegally, immorally, unprovokedly and unjustly invade their nation in March 2003 for the war profits of then-Vice President Dick Cheney’s no-contract-bidding war-profiteering corporation Halliburton and the other war-profiteering subsidiaries of BushCheneyCorp.

We, as a nation, lie that we truly believed the Bush regime’s lies that Iraq possessed weapons of mass destruction and posed some sort of threat to the United States when the fact is that we, as a nation, didn’t care whether Iraq actually was the problem or not (and it was not); we just wanted retaliation for 9/11, just wanted some Arab/Muslim nation to pay for 9/11.

Today, we — even President Barack Obama — tell the Iraqi people that it’s time for them to stand on their own two feet, as though the Iraqi people had asked us to destroy their nation in 2003 and cause the deaths of more than 110,000 innocent Iraqis, which is The Associated Press’ conservative body count.

Fewer than 3,000 Americans died on Sept. 11, 2001. More than 110,000 innocent Iraqis have died as a result of the Vietraq War, which, although Americans will deny it now, was some insane “retaliation” for 9/11.

Only the United States’ partner in war crimes and crimes against the humanity, Israel, has anything near such an insane, evil sense of proportion. (But at least the bloodthirsty Israelis can attack the group that actually is their enemy, the Palestinians, whereas the United States, with dumbfuck Bush at the helm, didn’t even strike back at the right nation; not a single of the 19 9/11 hijackers was from Iraq, but 15 of them were from U.S. ally Saudi Arabia.)

So that’s more than 110,000 innocent Iraqis unjustly and unnecessarily dead because of the United States of America and still millions of dumbfuck Americans scratch their heads and query themselves and each other like they did in the days following Sept. 11, 2oo1: Why do they hate us so much?

We, as a nation, not only have yet to apologize for the Vietraq War (but have only told the Iraqis, whom we “shocked and awed” for our television entertainment, to pick themselves up by their bootstraps), but we have yet to fully acknowledge, much more apologize for, the crimes that we committed at the Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq and elsewhere.

Luckily, the American Civil Liberties Union, under the Freedom of Information Act (which, appopriately, does not allow the government that we, the people, pay for through our tax dollars to act in secrecy), has forced the release next month of even more images of “freedom-” and “God-” and “Jesus- lovin'” Americans torturing detainees — the vast majority of them innocent of any crime — at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq and elsewhere, including Afghanistan, the Middle Eastern/Asian nation that we are “liberating” now.

Reports The Associated Press:

The White House vowed Friday it will not be distracted by an upcoming disclosure sure to gain attention at home and abroad: hundreds of photos showing U.S. personnel allegedly abusing prisoners in Iraq and Afghanistan in the post-Sept. 11 environment.

The images will show mistreatment at locations beyond the infamous U.S.-run Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq, where pictures emerged in 2004 of grinning U.S. soldiers posing with detainees, some naked, being held on leashes or in painful positions. That revelation caused a huge international backlash against the U.S.

The Pentagon plans to release the latest photos by May 28 in response to a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union. The move comes after the Justice Department lost its latest round in federal court and concluded that any further appeal would probably be fruitless.

The release of the photos, while underscoring President Barack Obama‘s promise of transparency, poses risks for the administration.

Politically, it could again focus attention on the troubling past and prompt more calls for investigations and prosecutions. Every bit of time and energy centered on examining misdeeds of previous years could undermine the president’s ability to rally Congress and the public behind an ambitious agenda.

Already, the White House spent much of this week dealing with questions about the era of George W. Bush, following the release of documents that detailed brutal interrogation techniques used by the CIA against terror suspects. Obama was prompted to release those memos in response to an ACLU lawsuit, too.

“The president is not concerned that this is going to distract from a larger agenda,” White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said Friday, referring to the combination of events. “I think the American people are focused on moving forward.”

Gibbs said the release of the photos was “largely compelled by a court decision” and not something that was in the White House’s control. He declined to say whether Obama would support releasing the photos even if he were not pressed by a court case.

Antonia Ferrier, a spokeswoman for House Republican Leader John Boehner of Ohio, said the release of the photos could cause a backlash that will put U.S. troops in harm’s way at greater risk. She said the issue is not Obama’s agenda but rather protection for the U.S. men and women in the military.

“The administration should have fought this all the way to the Supreme Court,” Ferrier said.

Pentagon spokesman Bryan Whitman said the pictures were part of Army investigations of abuse allegations. The Pentagon has pursued more than 400 such investigations, he said. Whitman said some of the forthcoming pictures would be edited to mask the identity of those pictured.

Defense officials said the total number of photos would be in the hundreds.

“The disclosure of these photographs serves as a further reminder that abuse of prisoners in U.S.-administered detention centers was systemic,” said Jameel Jaffer, director of the ACLU National Security Project.

“Some of the abuse occurred because senior civilian and military officials created a culture of impunity in which abuse was tolerated, and some of the abuse was expressly authorized,” Jaffer said. “It’s imperative that senior officials who condoned or authorized abuse now be held accountable for their actions.” …

There are the Repugnicans again, using the American troops as their human shields, politically speaking.

The release of further images of the Nazi-like treatment of detainees by Americans, the “good guys,” while the members of the unelected Bush regime were behind the wheel must be stopped in order to prevent harm to our troops, the insanely hypocritical Repugnicans are “arguing” now.

If the Repugnicans truly cared so fucking much about the welfare of our troops, then why did they march in lockstep when the unelected Bush regime sent more than 4,275 of our troops to their wholly unnecessary slaughter in Vietraq? And why don’t the Repugnicans ensure that those troops who return from Vietraq maimed and disabled for life receive the support that they need, instead of calling the use of Americans’ tax dollars to help Americans in need — instead of helping the already filthy rich, which is the Repugnican Party’s agenda — “socialism”? 

I expect the reaction to the ACLU’s victory under the Freedom of Information Act from the topsy-turvy Repugnicans, who call tyranny “freedom” and freedom “tyranny” and who call murder “liberation” and call liberation “murder.”

But I expect much more of the Obama administration.

“I think the American people are focused on moving forward,” the Obama White House mouthpiece proclaimed.

Isn’t that the same “argument” that Repugnican she-wolf in sheep’s clothing Sarah Palin-Quayle kept making during her vice presidential debate with Joseph Biden? That we musn’t look back upon the ugly deeds of the unelected Bush regime, but must only look forward?

But if the Obama administration truly wants to move the nation forward, then the Obama administration must not adopt the same tone and “arguments” of the Repugnicans to simply ignore the crimes of the past and to press ahead.

The ugly sins of the past, like ugly wounds, do not simply go away because we simply wish them to. Ignored, they simply fester from our neglect to deal with them, until one day the poisons from our neglected sins overwhelm us and they cause our demise.   

Until and unless those who, in the name of the people of the United State of America, committed war crimes and crimes against humanity are brought to justice, the United States of American cannot go foward. It might appear that the United States is going forward, but it only will be that the neglected wound is continuing to fester, waiting to break open and spill out it putrid pus at any time.

We have to go back and correct our mistakes, as a nation, if we want to succeed in the future as a nation.

*This begins with such things as not simply allowing presidential elections to be stolen blatantly, as was the 2000 presidential election, because clearly, a group of thugs who are willing to steal a presidential election and who actually get away with it are more than happy to go on and to commit even more serious crimes, more crimes of treason and even war crimes and crimes against humanity.
