The Iraq Quagmire is NOT an Accident

I recently blogged, again, on the question: Is the Chaos in Iraq on Purpose?

One highlight comes from Pulitzer prize writer Seymour Hersh who concludes:
The US is "... in the business of supporting the Sunnis anywhere we can against the Shia." "... in the business of creating ... sectarian violence."

The chaos in Iraq is not an accident. It's as if we're supposed to believe they didn't know the egg would break when they threw it on the ground. Evidence that the US has knowingly created a state of chaos in Iraq abounds. The following 1994 video clip is a smoking gun:

1994: Dick Cheney says invading Baghdad would be a "quagmire"

We are witnessing the take-over of the US by what Henry Kissinger called a "Revolutionary Power." The Bush regime is putting us on a permanent war footing to justify consolidation of executive power. The Judicial and Legislative branches can't or won't stop it. The fourth branch, establishment media, is corrupted by commercialism. Only the people we see in the mirror can stop it.

The Tenth Amendment Center has a lot to say about how the advance of war - even only consideration of war - skews the power balance when we have a weak legislature. Important but upsetting reading. We keep electing weenies (can I say "weenies" on your blog?) from both parties - people too weak to have a spine, but "beautiful" enough to win.

The legislature also forgets about its check on the power of the judiciary: impeachment. Regardless of which side of the political aisle we are on, I believe we all know of justices we'd like to see held up against the Constitutional standard. Now if only our legislature would remember the Constitution....

Thanks for the visit Rick.

"Weenies" is fine by me. "Establishment weenies" would be better.

The three branches, four if you count the establishment media, are failing. It's up to the fifth branch, we the people, to set things right. Your Patriots and Tyrants web site is a good step in that direction.
