AMERICA IN THE CROSSHAIRS OF INCOMPETENCE
Newsweek Publisher Jonathan Alter fashioned a rather genius piece of literature last week in his essay, �Trouble from the Top Down.� He wrote, �If Bush is stubborn and too sure that he has all the answers, the modeling of his behavior is likely to result in decisions you would ground your teenager for...Bush�s inattention to the execution of his grand ideas has had fatal consequences.�
To put those consequences in perspective, Bush caused the deaths of 655,000 Iraqis, 2,800 U.S. soldiers and abetted 20,000 gutted, amputated and wounded of our nation�s finest young men and women. Bush dropped depleted uranium bombs on Iraq that continue impacting for years in mutated children and birth defects for progeny of our returning servicemen. Bush�s actions set a new benchmark for the term �immoral.�
Bush�s legacy includes sectarian civil war slated to kill tens of thousands more while it does nothing to ensure America�s safety or Iraq�s. In his depleted emotional state, he vowed ��we won�t leave Iraq until victory.� Meanwhile, national polls show 70 percent of Americans want us out of Iraq. The common man possesses more common sense than the president.
James Baker�s �The Iraq Study Group Report� illustrated the futility of trying to win in someone else�s civil war. The fact is, we can�t win, but we can keep getting our combat troops killed off�for absolutely nothing.
How did Bush fail at such an extreme level especially with hundreds of thousands of other peoples� lives? We must look at the same reasons why he failed with his baseball teams and oil companies. Bush never made academics a priority at Yale University. He boozed a great deal. He avoided discipline.
Instead of excellence, he pursued a life of mediocrity, coasting and incompetence.
After fabricating the initial lie of weapons of mass destruction, he twisted that perspective into a half dozen other reasons for remaining in Iraq. At one moment, we saw herdsmen with red dye on their fingers as if their vote changed 1,600 years of theocratic rule in an instant.
Even as he remains in office, Bush maintains incompetence. Today, our embassy of 1,000 in Iraq employs only six fluent Arabic speakers. As Alter said, �In a conflict that demands effective communication with Iraqis; we are at a distinct disadvantage. Who would imagine that only .6 percent of our personnel that speak the native language might cause problems? At $8 billion per month in Iraq, you would think we�d have a few more people there who could find their way to the bathroom.�
Bush used his limited understandings of Islam to force �democracy� into a region whose religion successfully followed �Sharia Law� for the past 1,600 years. Trying to change Islam into �democracy� is like trying to tell a rabid Pit Bull dog not to bite. You cannot crossbreed a rattlesnake religion with a Canada goose to create a swan. What you get is a flying rattlesnake capable of 9/11.
Whether it was his failure as the owner of a baseball team or his inability to use his father�s wealth in business or his one conviction out of two DUI arrests, George Bush displays a lifetime of not paying attention to details or personal responsibility. How we do anything in life is how we do everything.
Today, as the commander in chief of the United States, Bush�s folly translates into our national suicide. Whereas he wouldn�t or didn�t consider consequences of stepping into a viper�s den in Iraq while wearing not much more than his lifelong arrogance as armor, he allows our nation�s borders a 24 hour open mall for countless terrorists. Where he used WMD to provoke the Iraq War, he uses, �They do the jobs Americans won�t do� to allow gross violations of the U.S. Constitution by employers and 20 million people illegally residing inside America.
He makes no attempt to distinguish between migrant workers, criminals, sex traders, drug smugglers or terrorists that cross our borders. He encourages illegals and Islamists entering our country to brutalize our educational, medical and prison systems under the guise of �education� and �social awareness.� They laugh at us as they destroy our society from within. This invasion of our borders continues five years after 9/11; that�s gross incompetence!
Meanwhile, how do you think those bloody �insurgents� keep supplying themselves with IED explosives? Incompetence factor number 6 (years in his presidency): Bush hasn�t secured Iraq�s borders thus giving unending supply of explosives and ammunition that keep killing our soldiers.
In other words, as a Yale student, Bush didn�t do his homework. He partied big time. While hiding out in the National Guard during the Vietnam War, he rarely attended monthly meetings. When given a baseball team via his father�s money, he failed at maintaining it. While allowed the privilege of driving a car, he drove drunk more than anyone will ever know, but was only convicted once of two DUI arrests.
If he continues failing our sovereignty, we face much of the Balkanization and internal turmoil now experienced in Iraq, Lebanon, Paris, France, Britain; Israel/Palestine and other areas where the loss of the rule of law explodes into social upheaval.
In a lifetime of mediocrity, it wasn�t that he was a competent man running for the office of president as much as he was �electable.� Now that he sits in the Oval Office, his lifetime of folly catches up with him, to our soldiers and, worst of all�our nation hangs in the cross hairs of incompetence.
Lest you view this column as frivolous lambasting, ask yourself what is gained when facts are swept under the rug while you look the other way. As I said, how a man does anything is how he does everything. George W. Bush illustrates that statement to a T.
Men of character and integrity created this nation. George Walker Bush couldn�t stand in the same room as Thomas Jefferson, Ben Franklin, John Adams, George Washington or James Madison. If everyone knew Bush�s vacuous history, he wouldn�t be invited to stand in the same room with any combat soldier from Valley Forge to Iraq.
As Jonathan Alter wrote, �A war that was launched by twisting intelligence is being lost while twisting body counts. Shakespeare�s �tangled web� of deceit was woven at the top, but its threads extend everywhere.�
What you can do for a better future for your country:
A republican form of government is not a spectator sport. It means you must jump in, roll up you sleeves and take personal and collective action. Of course, you could let a dictator take over and do everything for you, but that path would give you Cuba, China, North Korea and other unsavory examples.
To stop Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid from giving an amnesty, take action. Call for a full 10 year moratorium.
We must 'sour the milk.� Bring out your points in the call:
America cannot support another 100 million people added to our country
in 34 years, i.e., water crisis, resource depletion, air pollution,
gridlock, loss of quality of life, etc.
To stop illegal aliens in your community, you may follow the course of action by Mayor Louis Barletta of Hazelton, PA. He offers a bomb proof ordinance that takes business licenses away from those who hire illegals. He legally halts landlords from renting to illegals. Without work and without housing, illegals cannot stay in your community. Check out his web site for instructions: SmallTownDefenders.com
