“The main topic of conversation both here in the White House and inside the Beltway is the looming disaster in Iraq. In spite of what Tony Snow and Bush say, Iraq is deep in a vicious civil war between two bitter religious enemies; the Sunnis and the Shiites.
Anyone who reads the National Geographic is aware of these ancient and bloody feuds but apparently Bush and his Likud friends were not when they created a huge disaster by removing Hussein and his control over both sides. In the first place, Bush was determined to have his war for as number of reasons.
The first was to give the finger to his father , the second to please his oilmen family friends by grabbing control over the largest known reserves of the world’s oil and lastly, to accommodate his Israeli-controlled Neocon supporters.
That he has utterly failed in all three areas seems to have eluded him and poor Karl Rove is absolutely certain that the American people will realize their terrible mistake in throwing out the Republicans and will vote them back into power again so they can rape, loot, pillage and reestablish a new police state in 2008.
There have been strong rumors here of a CIA-sponsored military putsch in Iraq with the idea of establishing a military dictatorship that would be friendly to Bush and his people (but certainly not the evil Democrats) but events in Iraq have erupted with such violence that a coup is probably not possible. All we can do to prevent a huge loss of U.S. military life is to withdraw as soon as possible. Once the two bloody factions have butchered each other in a quest for absolute control of Iraq, they will immediately turn on us with a great fury and at this point in time, they are heavily armed and there will be no stopping them.
The potential for a regional war involving (possibly) Iran, Turkey and Saudi Arabia is certainly not out of the question.
But Bush will not budge one inch on this. It is his last and desperate attempt to hold on to his created manhood and he is psychologically incapable from retreating.
Unfortunately, Bush has the nuclear football and can launch whatever military action he wants, without any oversight from Congress or the military and given this, and the magnitude of the storm he has created, and coupled with his obvious fury at losing control of Congress, it would be better for all of us if he either voluntarily left the White House before his term is up in 2008 or was removed from the levers of power (and the suitcase with the nuclear launch codes) by those more sensible than himself.”
