Georgia10 continues her supremely intellectual “liar, liar, pants on fire” personal vendetta against the president: Liar in Chief. I shall dumb down my writing to a level she can understand.
georgia10, crouched over her laptop: “How can I write ‘liar’ today? My comment-fans demand it. And honestly, I just like saying it. It rolls off the tongue. Llllllliar. Lllllies. LIES! LIAR! Ahh, that feels good. I know, I’ll write that Bush is a liar! I’ll be so popular!”
“The world” excludes the Iraqis who are dying by the dozens each day.
Objection! This unattributed statement creates the impression that Iraq was just as peaceful as could be before we came along. This site says that around 300,000 Iraqi civilians died during Saddam’s regime. On average, that’s about 12,500/year and 34/day.
“The world” excludes America which, with every bullet and every bomb, creates more recruits for Al Qaeda.
Objection! Pure speculation, no evidence provided. (Unless you count Al Qaeda’s propaganda, that is.)
This President wanted war. He wanted to provoke Saddam into starting war, even though Saddam didn’t take the bait and offered to surrender and have full inspections. This President wanted war, and he used a steady stream of lies start that war to quench his bloodlust.
Objection! Speculative. The linked article clearly states that any “surrender” (a large g10 exaggeration, by the way) scenario that Iraqi leaders proposed required leaving Saddam in power, which is quite clearly contradictory to the U.S. regime-change policy, and thus irrelevent.
The new Downing Street Memo isn’t so new. Like previous documents, such as the original Downing Street Memo that stated flat out the evidence for war was being fixed around the policy of regime change, this document has been around in the foreign press and the blogosphere for a while.
Objection! Those Downing Street memos represent the opinion of a bystander. It’s circumstantial evidence. Oh and, by the way, regime change in Iraq became official U.S. policy when Bill Clinton signed the Iraq Liberation Act in 1998, so of course evidence was being “fixed around the policy of regime change.”
Bush and Blair were hellbent on launching a war which they knew was in violation of international law
Objection! Delusional. I’m looking and looking at that sentence and I just can’t find the hyperlinks pointing to a) evidence proving that the war was in violation of international law and b) evidence proving that Bush and Blair knew it was in violation beforehand. I can find, however, in the Downing Street memos, statements opining that the Iraq war plan was not in violation of any international law.
They [Bush and Blair] were determined to lie and deceive the world into thinking Saddam Hussein possessed WMD, that he was an imminent threat.
Objection! She failed to include Saddam in her little liars club. I wonder how his attempt to deceive the world fits into her neat little Bush-Blair conspiracy theory? Oh, I see the problem: It doesn’t fit. When in doubt, just ignore the evidence.
What can we do to show the American people that all the bloodshed on their TV screens is the result of a dangerously incompetent and manipulative President?
Objection! Oh. My. God. THE LIES!!! And here I thought the president was in the White House or his ranch in Texas, when all this time HE’S BEEN ON THE GROUND IN IRAQ!! SETTING OFF IEDS!! KILLING SHI’ITES!! KILLING SUNNIS!! BLOWING UP MOSQUES!! FORMING DEATH SQUADS!! ALL BY HIMSELF!! Gosh, I was so naive. (That was an example of how ridiculous georgia10’s articles usually sound to me.)
Shut down the Senate, Senator Reid. Shut. It. Down.
Yes, please, for the love of God, man. Shut. It. Down. Take. A. Vacation. Anything. To. Shut. This. Whiney. Drama. Queen. Up!
Ugh, I tire of this. Does anyone else see through this charade yet? When is this girl going to realize that the world is a big, scary place where important grown-ups make big, secret, scary decisions that affect millions and billions of people every day?
