America acts in the world like it is leaderless or bi-polar.
If you wonder about that assertion, then all you need do is look at death and destruction atround the globe, and wonder: where’s this country’s leadership? Who’s in charge? The president? The vice president? The secretary of state? Congress?
The neocons (who obviously had Iraq’s number from day one) (yeah, right) use to loooove to talk about cutting off the head of the snake, Hussein. Yet they never quite managed to accomplish this.
The snake head that runs this country is either missing or slumbering. How is it that this country’s diplomatic corp can be so easily intimidated at the negottiating tble by a pip squeak of a dick-tator in North Korea? Ethiopa (land of the starving) apparently has an army (who knew?) and is making moves on Somalia and Darfur, and while Bush would rather clear weeds than attend funerals for dead presidents (Reagan, Ford), Rice is running around like yet another animal with its head cut off (squwak!), accomplishing fuck all.
Just setting the military forces up shop in Iraq so they can do their usual business and then taking a vacation is no way to run a country or a war, son. Did you smoke too much crack back in your youth, and did it rot your brain? Abu Ghraib and other atrocities committed by American troops are commonplace, under-reported, and would this happen on the watch of a steward who gives a shit?
With their legacy of international tumult, poorly played brinksmanship, theft by proxy of the treasury, the leaders of the homeland ™ today make all of us look (yes, democrats too) to the rest of the world like a rogue nation which would rather arrogantly elbow it’s way to the trough like an 800 pound pig.
The credit is all yours, pal, I hope you fucking enjoy it. Hisotry will be kind and the footnotes will read you were a fucking retard due to drugs and alcohol.
As for Condoleeza, if she wants to be invisible, she’s doing a heckuva job. Her legacy at this stage will undeniably be the most innefectual Secretary of State this country ever produced.
Maybe her title should more accurately refelect her job? Let’s get it changed to “Executive Assistant of State.”
Sure, she logs the air miles like a champ, but what has Condi acutally accomplished? Was her goal all along simply to fly free for the rest of her life?
