"I'm not sure which planet they live on"
While Wesley Clark stumps for War on Public Radio’s darling station WBUR
, “Hawks in the Bush administration may be making deadly miscalculations
on Iraq, says Gen. Anthony Zinni, Bush's Middle East envoy.” To answer Zinni’s question: they’re certainly NOT living on planet “accidental armageddon”
, or planet “C.I.A. Warns That a U.S. Attack May Ignite Terror”
or planet "Butler Fears Israel could Use Nukes"
. I’d say they’re on planet Shifting rationals for war
, planet Pax Americana
, planet “Bullish on War”
, planet “G.I.Joe’s Forward Command Post”
, planet “Universal US Draft”
, planet “Blanket immunity for US”
and when they’re not thinking about war, they go to planet “upward wealth transfer”
and also hang out sometimes at planet “genetically targeted weapons as politically usefull tools and perception reengineering via nanobots, psychedelic drugs and valium”
But they stay far away from planet “Origins of Fascism in the US”
. And they hang garlic on their beds to ward off planet "Is Bush a commie mole trying to destroy capitalism?"
