This here is what you call "completing the circle".

How interesting that the US Gov. wants to sell 20 billion dollars in war machinery to the Saudi Arabia.

What a great idea. Never heard a better one.

Let's see if we can put it all together and complete the circle here.

Sept 11, 2001 crazies fly planes into buildings in the US. Most of them are Saudis. As was the source of their funding.

We chase after that bearded guy (where's Osama?) then put the breaks on.

Time to go into Iraq.

Topple the secular dictator there, civil war starts between Sunnis and Shiites, Al Queda moves in to join the fun.
So far, close to 4000 US dead, tens of thousands of our young men and women wounded, hundreds of thousands of innocent Iraqis dead, millions on the run or refuges elsewhere.
Destroyed infrastructure over most of the land.

Amidst all this, US props up Shiite government in Iraq.

Now we're fighting Sunni insugents, al queda crazies and dealing with Shiite militias.

Bush-friendly contractors get billions from our treasury to do nothing.

US and British oil companies and weapons manufacturers are making billions in profits since the start of the war.

The only little arc in the circle that is not quite complete, but is almost there, is the forcing (at gun point, really) of the Iraqis to hand over control of most of the oil under their sand.
112 BILLION proven barrels of crude oil pure enough to pump out of the ground and put in the crankcase of your car.

Summer of 2007, Bush wants to sell the Saudis 20 Billion dollars worth of death-making equipment (Of course, since the Israeli's aren't too happy about that, we'll just hand over billions more to them in the coming decades).

They'll wind up funneling some of it to extremists we're now fighting.

Our soldiers who are fighting them over there so we don't have to fight them here get shot at thanks to our arms dealing.

The circle is now closed.

Thanks to your friends, BushCheney.
Two fucking cocksuckers trying to ruin this planet for everyone but the oligarchy they stand for.

yea, I was able to work the f-word and cocksucker in the same sentence.. :)
hard not to get ticked off about these guys.
it's almost like we live in some fucking bizarro world or something.

Like Patton Oswalt said on his last comedy CD:

"on our planet, Arnold Schwarzenegger runs California, torture is legal and spinach is poison."

Well, we fund Wahhabism happily with our Denalis and Escalades, don't we? How big a step is it to arming them, really?

BOBBY said...

Funny how we end up in a war with people we once supported and armed... Saudi Arabia? Welcome to the war zone!

These fuckbags almost make Hilary look like a viable candidate. If you're deaf and you squint your eyes of course.

Mike V. said...

Yea, it does help to be deaf when it comes to Clinton.

Here's what Matt Taibbi said about her earlier this year:

"When Hillary Clinton spouts a cliche, it's four words long, she's reading it off a teleprompter, and it hits the ear like the fat part of a wooden oar."

Matt Taibbi is simply the best political writer out there right now:
