Bush Tears and Iraq Photo Ops

I Do Tears
Dead Certain by Robert Draper, some inside views of The Decider.

"I do tears."
"I've got God's shoulder to cry on. And I cry a lot. I do a lot of crying in this job. I'll bet I've shed more tears than you can count, as president. I'll shed some tomorrow."

Bush Not Alarmed
Bush Considers Troop Strength in Iraq

"The main factor that will affect my decision on troop levels is, can we succeed? What does it take to succeed?" Bush said, chopping the table with the side of his hand. "Because failure would lead to harm to America, is what I believe. As a matter of fact, I'm certain of it."

Not true. Per Draper's book Bush is "playing" for time to keep the troops in Iraq until he's long gone. Playing. So he lied again to our troops. Mutiny would have been a swell idea. The soldiers outnumber the secret service...but they do have some serious firepower of their own. They surely know they are sacrificing for a liar's war.

Keith Olbermann did a Special Comment on this latest ruse from the thugs. We "might" bring troops home but only if they're "successful"

"I'm playing for October-November," Mr. Bush said to Draper. That, evidently, is the time during which, he thinks he can sell us the real plan, which is "to get us in a position where the presidential candidates will be comfortable about sustaining a presence."

Bush Playing at War

The "Compassionate Christian Conservative" (he's none of those things) heard from some troops who weren't overjoyed to be on fourth and fifth deployments; Bush said, "I'm wasn't alarmed by what I heard" and moved on. Of course he's not alarmed, it's not happening to HIM. He's safe. He's always out of harm's way.

Staying In Iraq For Ever


"We're kicking ass," Bush told Mark Vaile on the tarmac after the Deputy Prime Minister inquired politely of the President's stopover in Iraq en route to Sydney.

Good Pet, said all the right lies to Congress.

Just like he was ordered to by his Commander Guy.

Soldiers in Iraq Back Petraeus Testimony??? They DO? Well, good for them. I sure hope they don't rue the day they believed a word out of Bush's lying lips. The supposed "withdrawal" of some troops is based on post-surge numbers. Nice fuzzy math. Well, all's well, then. HOO-AH!

Sunni Sheik (?) Sattar Abu Risha

United States President George W Bush had met Sheik Abu Risha during a visit to Iraq last week. Ramadi police officer Ahmed Mahmoud al-Alwani says the Sheikh's car was totally destroyed by the explosion; Abu Risha was killed and two of his bodyguards were seriously wounded.

Update: Per Greg Palast, the Sheik is a fake.
Here's what you need to know that NPR won't tell you.
1. Sheik Abu Risha wasn't a sheik.
2. He wasn't killed by Al Qaeda.
3. The new alliance with former insurgents in Anbar is as fake as the sheik -- and a murderous deceit.
Notably, Rowley and his camera caught up with Abu Risha on his way to a "business trip" to Dubai, money-laundering capital of the Middle East.

There are some real sheiks in Anbar, such as Ali Hathem of the dominant Dulaimi tribe, who told Rick that Abu Risha was a con man. Where was his tribe, this tribal leader? "The Americans like to create characters like Disney cartoon heroes." Then Ali Hathem added, "Abu Risha is no longer welcome" in Anbar.
On Thursday, Bush said Abu Risha was killed, "fighting Al Qaeda" -- and the White House issued a statement that the sheik was "killed by al Qaeda."


Palast doesn't mince at link.

APTOPIX Bush Cheney
And under the radar...Shitboy and Dick still have all those emergency powers they already granted themselves after 9/11...executive order.
Notice: Continuation of the National Emergency with Respect to Certain Terrorist Attacks

Speaking of Dubai....let's not forget that's where Dick has moved Halliburton HQ and his the UAE where his best buddies do all their business. Dick is, after all, aligned with the Saudis against the U.S. His loyalties do not lie with the United States Government, under which he supposedly "serves" but with his own financial interests. Saudi Arabia, the Bush family and Cheney are all the absolute best of friends...and Bin Laden is a Saudi who got what he wanted via 9/11...all U.S. bases out of Saudi Arabia. Mission accomplished.

Shedding tears is hard work.

When he's done with that, he'll begin the task of shedding his snakeskin.

(As usual, an outstanding issue.)

Thanks, Asta. I must say, my favorite "thank you" Lieboy spewed during his propaganda show on TV the other night was:
"We thank the 36 nations who have troops on the ground in Iraq" helping us to destroy Iraq.
TPM Muckraker breaks it down for us here.
It sure must be a surprise to our troops. Especially the extra 30,000 sent for the "surge" from Hell. And hey, "We're kicking ass!" was a classic. Can't make this stuff up. But Georgie can. Lie after lie after lie. And hysterically, his "poll numbers" went up. We're in Bizarro World. Up is down, wrong is right..GOP right.
It's like a nightmare from which we can't wake up. A daily horror show for the Iraqi people who did NOTHING to us. NOTHING. And still our spineless weaklings in Congress won't stop the insanity. I wonder what the hell it's going to take to stop the murder of innocent's unconscionable to "wait" for the next "pResident" to take office. Immoral, illegal, disgusting and totally fucked. War criminals are in charge. Arrest their asses NOW!

Heh heh...thanks NACNUD. It's nice to know you were paying attention. ;)
That's right I took a "vacation" from the stench in D.C. while Congress rested up to do nothing upon reconvening and George had his umpteenth vacation break from the "hard work" of decideratin' 'bout wars an' stuff.
HEY! If I got a few more comments I might post more. :)

I have printed the picture where lie-boy says "we are not leaving as long as I am president" to take to a small town - town hall meeting with Brian Baird Saturday. THANK YOU!!

Hey, Natch. Nice to see you!
Good luck convincing Baird of anything, he's now an "expert" since he visited Iraq.
I wonder if he was protected by Blackwater thugs like all the other Congressional entourages.
In May, Baird supported a bill that would have required troop levels to start falling by Oct. 1.
But his perspective changed after a visit to Iraq in early August

I don't understand how a man with a PhD in psychology was so easily fooled.
How can he not support immediate withdrawal? He thinks Americans don't want to "lose" the war?
There's no WINNING this nightmare! What the hell is wrong with him? He might need further therapy. ;)
And hey, you're welcome. :)

Yo Panda...I don't get it either. He just dosen't SEEM like the type to sell out! Sure, stealing another ten years oil supply is an IDEA, but not a REAL GOOD IDEA. I will lay your pic on him. Just put up a vid at Left Edge North of Baird as the GOOD Brian Baird. Maybe he's gone wonky and bi-whatchamacallit. I don't give a fuck, people are DYING by the THOUSANDS.

I'll check back at Left Edge North after Saturday for your report. Again, good luck. :)

Yes, by the thousands, but apparently Iraqi lives don't count. We must have our pound of flesh, and then some, from a country that had NOTHING to do with 9/11. Sometimes the stupidity of our fellow citizens is astounding. That they believe Bush/Cheney's PR machine is incredible. All the facts are available online yet they still CHOOSE to believe Iraqis attacked us and that there were WMDs in Iraq. It's willful ignorance.
Osama who?
