  •  What Bush's Speech Really Meant (12+ / 0-)

    He spent 4 years trying to insert and then prop up a pro-US puppet regime that would give Western oil companies longterm sweetheart deals (ever notice how the "oil law" was always a crucial benchmark evenas all other benchmarks changed?).

    By asserting, last night, that the US forces will be there in large numbers for the indefinite future, Bush was acknowledging that no stable central Iraqi government will ever emerge and that we are going to shift from neo-colonialism to the old-style troops-in-your-streets variety.

    The opposite of 'liberal' isn't 'conservative', its 'authoritarian'.
