Unleashing the Resistance - 06/15/05 09:15 PM

Another good article from Karen Kwiatkowski, here's a snippet:<br><br><blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>The Downing Street Memo explains in brisk understated English what I didnít<br>fully understand when I worked for Secretary Rumsfeld and Dough Feith in the<br>Pentagon in 2002 and early 2003.<br><br>Like a morning cup of tea in a friendly chair with nothing to do but gaze out a<br>window at birds around a feeder, the memo is pleasantly comforting.<br><br>I saw accurately what was happening.<br><br>Yet, as Robert Shetterly and others have pointed out, accountability for George<br>W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz and the rest of the war gamers is not<br>likely. At this time, impeachment for Bush and Cheney is politically impossible.<br>A successful impeachment, or any accountability for the executive branch<br>requires a certain balance of political power. Optimistically envisioned by the<br>Founders, this balance was tenuous even in the early years of the Republic.<br>George W. Bush said it best after the 2004 elections with "[my] accountability<br>moment has passed."<br><br>Today we have not even a shadow of the Nixon or Clinton era political and media<br>power competition. Instead, we see only unbalanced power, unbalanced<br>perspective, unbalanced minds. A warped political-media borg warning us that<br>resistance is futile.<p><hr></blockquote><p>http://www.lewrockwell.com/kwiatkowski/kwiatkowski113.html<br><br>More>><br><br>http://www.lewrockwell.com/kwiatkowski/kwiatkowski-arch.html<br><br><br><br>

Then why are the flood gates open?<br>http://news.google.com/news?hl=en&ned=us&q=impeach<br>& dare I go here:<br>http://news.google.com/news?hl=en&ned=us&ie=UTF-8&q=Iraq+pullout<br><br>Oh, and the accountability factor is a HUGE issue in an ever more lazy (sex w/no condom cuz god said so) overpopulating world where thugged out insane males have waaaaay to many cut and run relationships where 2 = 3 nah mean?<br>Thus the world is shrinking and don't complain about accountability...<br>for when one is used as a mule by a manipulative upper echelon (evangelicals hiking up rates for example, in the name of rapture perhaps...) that mule dies...<br>no on cries, until the mules don't care and wander back to their home bases...<br>wha?<br><br>Why deny a people, why deem the evil because of simplicity in their lives?<br><br>C'mon homie.<br>C'mon brothers and sisters<br>save this Earth, teach the children better<br>or we all fall for generations to come.<br><br>X

That is sadly accurate... this Congress will surely not hold W and his jackels accountable for their lies and mistakes.<br><br>The only slim hope of holding W accountable for lying to start the Iraq war is to threaten expulsion of many Congressmen in the 2006 election.<br>That is NOT likely to happen and even IF the threats were made, not enough would respond- many would figure in heavily conservative districts or states they could squeeze by even if a large part of the voters were outraged. <br><br>That could change if Congress- esp the Senate changed hands in 2006.<br><br>David (OFI)<br>
