Dubya, Hammer of God

May 18, 2009

Remember, back in those nightmare years surrounding the initial invasion and occupation of Iraq? Remember when we would speculate, half in jest, that Dubya was an unhinged, end-times, Book-of-Revelation, whackjob war leader? That he was, ha-ha, doing God's work in smiting the infidels? That he was, snort, paving the way for the Apocalypse?

All of it was true.

It seems that Donald Rumsfeld, in those early days during and after the invasion, would submit to the President a daily intelligence briefing called the Worldwide Intelligence Update. On each cover was emblazoned a full-color hymn to American martial virtue, complete with appropriately smite-tacular Biblical verse.

I kid you not. Bush was EVERY INCH the nutjob avenging Warrior of God we imagined him to be in our dark satiric daydreams.

These people need to go to jail.

Arun Gupta, (A-roon Goop-ta) journalist and activist, was founding editor of The Indypendent newspaper in New York. He's a regular contributor to Alternet and Z. He also appears on Democracy Now, GRIT TV, and Al Jazeera.

"We cannot rebuild this economy on the same pile of sand," declares the president. But it seems that's what going on. Obama's treasury secretary says, "We have a financial system that is run by private shareholders, managed by private institutions, and we'd like to continue to do our best to preserve that." That's the stated policy.
