why does america's 'king' think he can 'fix' everything?
i think it's the movies.
except this isn't fucking hollywood!
there aren't any good-looking american heroes, overcoming impossible odds. no cheesy divorced husband-wife scientist/military couple working get-togethers, to save the world from destruction.
it doesn't matter if you send another 20,000 soldiers shouting "we're the best, of the best, of the best, sir!" because where they're going, they're not the best (because you're not fighting a war on your terms).
3 years on and 3,000+ highly trained american personnel later, might have taught you what the russians already knew from afghanistan.
if you kick a ball, it moves (yes landon donovan, and the us soccer team)
if you get thrown against a brick wall, some 30ft through the air, nobody's getting up, looking all tough, wiping a trickle of blood from the corner of their mouth, and saying "is that all you got "mother fucker!"
if you start a war, all hell breaks loose. people actually die horrible painful deaths. they do, honestly. the american news media isn't going to show any bodies coming back home, or any graphic images of dead us personnel.. how 'real' is that coverage?
and speaking of real. unlike hollywood, real-life doesn't have happy endings for everyone. just because george says we can't do this and we can't do that, doesn't make any difference to the actual outcome. THERE IS NO HAPPY ENDING FOR IRAQ, GEORGE!
his use of rhetoric is that of a 12 year-old, practicing for a school play; and a poorly written one, at that.
his command of language is also that of a 12 year old, but one who hasn't paid attention in class. if he were a dog, i'd bark myself.
it's hard not to recall h. g. wells' famous opening lines to 'war of the worlds':
'No-one would have believed in the early years of the twenty-first century...'
what does he do after 9/11? 'Bush urges Americans to spend'
He tried to set an example for Americans by taking Washington DC Mayor Anthony Williams out for a high-profile steak dinner in Washington. (i'm sure he got to shake hands with the mayor (i know something you don't george, unless your reading this...ha, ha!) see below george:
you can't turn back the arrow of time, george. you just don't get it, do you?
watch 'control room'...
hey: how's your knowledge of nursery rhymes, george?
how 'bout this one?
'...and all the king's horses and all the king's men, couldn't put humpty together again!'
