Fuck The Fucking God-Damned USA

Think Progress reveals a "formerly classified" 1995 Pentagon document labelling White Phosphorous a "chemical weapon" - but ONLY WHEN IT WAS USED BY SADDAM!!!

Kos:
Saddam tortured, we torture. Saddam used WP chemical weapons against insurgents and civilians, we use WP chemical weapons against insurgents and civilians.

Like torture, the apologists try to justify our use of such abhorrent techniques, oblivious to the fact that our moral standing is in tatters and our crediblity beyond repair. We aren't just losing the war in Iraq, we are losing our credibility in the world.
Now listen. Regular readers will know I am a patient, thoughtful and carefully spoken observer of these things. But there has to come a point where even the most patriotic US citizens rise up and shout "Enough! This is not the USA I used to believe in! What have we become?"

Why are there not millions of you out in the streets, calling for the resignation of this pathetic puppet President and his entire administration? Why are you not screaming out of your windows, banging pots and pans like the grandmothers in Argentina used to do? Why are you not marching on the White House, protesting outside the offices of your local officials, doing whatever you can to stop this madness? I don't understand...

Citizens of the USA, you are faced with an urgent choice between fundamental human values and shallow nationalistic fervour. You must be prepared to place your basic human beliefs, sentiments which unite us all, above your loyalty to your much-hyped country. If the title of this post offends you - GOOD! It's supposed to!

I speak for the rest of the world. Like millions of others, I grew up watching Superman talk about "Truth, Justice... and the American Way!" I am old enough and have seen enough bad in this world to appreciate the good that the USA once represented. Where is it now?

I hear all you self-congratulating anti-Bush Democrats talk and talk about "re-shaping the debate" and scoring political points to turn the tables on the GOP. For what? Another Skull And Bones President picked from the Senators and Congressmen who supported the war?

You are fucking up our environment, you are polluting our children's heads with your crap commercialism, low moral values, violence and propaganda. You are tearing long-standing international treaties to shreds. You are giving every tyrant on this planet an excuse to follow your lead, re-brand his torture as "Freedom On The Fucking March" and throw his political opponents in jail forever. You are destroying all the good that endless years off "civilisation" have struggled to define...

You think your stupid country is so important? Arrrggghhhh!!!!

Aaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrgggghhhh!!!!!

Enough! It's time to re-imagine yourselves! Look at what you are, not what you once thought you were. Start from there.

Jeez mate - go easy - that's a whole country you are generalising to. Why offend the ones who could share your p.o.v. and give ammo to those who would choose to argue for further disengagement and unilateralism? I would be really offended if someone wrote that about Australia REGARDLESS of my politics. And so would you. Come on - you are far more eloquent and specific that this latest brainfart shows.

And really - telling Americans what to do with their politics is just as silly a look as when Americans tell others how to be politically.

As a great Indian chief once said, "I am tired of talk and talk that comes to nothing."

This post was triggered by a discussion of just who exactly is the worst US President ever. What does THAT matter? Bush is the worst President right now - do something about it!!!

Rome is burning and all I can hear are fiddles.

If Australia was doing what the USA is doing (rather than just following the USA's lead) I would expect similar criticism from my US friends and I wouldn't be here having meaningless wank-fests about who was the sorst Aussie PM ever. I would be out on the street, or in jail like Cindy Sheehan.

DO SOMETHING, AMERICA!

sorst = worst

Talkfest here for anyone interested.

And I just read that Bush wanted to bomb Al Jazeera offices around the world and was only talked out of it by Blair.

And the Iraqi government is giving a nod and a wink to insurgent attacks on US forces. So why are we there?

See what I am talking about, folks? Day after day...

DO SOMETHING!

Take action now: go spend Thanksgiving protesting outside Bush's ranch in Crawford, Texas.
