The Big Bush has a lot little Bush fires sparking all around him. Here’s a few of them:
Bush fires here:
-The Downing Street Memo: The cowardly American press is finally paying some attention to it. This one is volatile and could burn him down.
-A Gallup poll found that about 6 in 10 Americans advocated a withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq. A slow spreading fire and it will consume Bush, the GOP, and the chicken-hawks.
-Recruitment is next to impossible as young Americans are refusing to strap on suicide vests for oil billionaires. Bush will try to put it out with a draft – like a hydra’s head lopped off, America will be in flames.
-The politicians in America are finally finding enough courage to call for a pull out from Iraq. A resolution was introduced by both Democrat and GOP Reps calling for an exist strategy from the meat grinder.
Bush fires there:
-The Sunnis are killing the Shiites in Iraq and the Shiites are killing Sunnis. And the Kurds are kidnapping Sunnis; a bit of a conundrum; a bit of a Bush fire. It is Bush’s fire.
-The elected reps in Iraq have refused to disband their local militias, thumbing their noses at the Big Bush. These sparks could go ablaze anytime.
-Clerics have been wrestling control of the Iraqi State from American puppets like the Chalabis and the Allawis. Once they see the religious writing on the wall, they might not be the dutiful puppets the Big Bush is counting on.
-Iraqi soldiers are openly defiant to their American masters and will often turn away from danger and walk away en masse.
-Iraqi soldiers are seen as untrainable by American soldiers. Both sides despise each other and don’t trust each other.
Bush fires everywhere:
-Kim Jung Il is flirting with Rho without Bush’s permission.
-Hugo Chavez refuses to be controlled by the USA.
-Brazil, Chile, Uruguay, and Argentina are all talking to Chavez behind Bush’s back.
-Increasing trade is helping Cuba out of its economic isolation.
-Amnesty International has called America’s concentration camps, The Gulags of our time.
-The Sandinistas in Nicaragua are re-awakening.
And then there’s Musharraf, Palestine, Afghanistan, bin Laden, Uzbekistan, and there’s Bolton, Rumsfield, Cheney, and there is Bush himself. And there’s the internet, Counterpunch, Democracy Now, Indymedia, and socialists, and peaceniks, and Chomsky and Moore and millions of unknown subversives - like you and me.
In the future there is the Geneva Convention, The American Constitution, and The Hague.
The forecast for Mr. Bush looks like this. It’s gonna be hot.
Pass the matches around.
