Remind me again... this is an alternative to what?

Obama Promises 10,000 More Troops for Afghanistan - CommonDreams.org

So Barak Obama, the Democratic Party candidate for President of the united States of America, vows to send 10,000 more soldiers to Iraq, oh wait... Afghanistan, to kill more Al Qa'ida, Taliban, wedding party guests, innocent women, children and elderly... for what reason?

And this is opposed to the Republican Party candidate who wants to send more troops to Afghanistan, no wait,... Iraq, or is it Iran? to kill more Al Qa'ida, Taliban, wedding party guests, innocent women, children and elderly... for what reason?

Could it be that the Democrats want to invade and occupy Afghanistan to maintain a safe corridor for oil and gas pipelines from the Caspian Sea region, and the Republicans want to invade and occupy Iraq and Iran to control the largest remaining reserves in the world of easily produced crude oil?

So where is this wonderful democratic system of government we're supposed to have in the united States that represents the people? All of the people, not just those in three piece suits being chauffeured to their penthouse offices in tall buildings in big cities.

What happened to government "of the people, by the people and for the people?"

Bush Offers to hold Israel's Coat

Bush Backs Israeli Plan for Strike on Iran As Tehran Tests New Missiles, America Believes Only a Show of Force Can Deter President Ahmadinejad

In a scintillating display of international onepuffmanship, Ovalmeister George W. Bush prods Israel to attack Iran, sniggering up his sleeve as he adds sotto voce, "You're on your own."

Who believes the Smirk-in-Chief, when his retinue of beribboned Pentagon Choir members wear their peace robes while they reprise the chorus of war in the background. They're just itching for a new battlefield to try out all their new "non-lethal" weapons on a new set of "enemies." There's more fighter planes and bombers to sell, missiles to get off the shelf; it's a Blue-light Special at War Mart.

What a coincidence that Iran just announced the "discovery" of a new oil field, filled to the Plimsol line with billions of barrels of crude, now selling at $145 a barrel and climbing. When will we hear the old familiar mantra, "It's not about oil. It's not about oil?"

Impeach them all while we still have a chance. Saddle up the posse, the Bush Gang is making a getaway!
