For George W.'s next speech to sell his misguided war on terror, he's decided to bring representatives from countries that have suffered terrorists attacks to sit in the audience. This is not a brilliant move, unless Bush thinks the 65% of Americans who oppose the war in Iraq are idiots.
Bush is bringing people from London, Madrid, Indonesia, Saudi Arabia and Jordan to emphasize the global nature of his war on terror. This is a pure Rovian tactic, as while most of these places have suffered terror attacks, not one of these terrorist attacks was carried out by people from Iraq! This is where Bush thinks we a re idiots. He's already stated there were no WMD, flip flopped on his blaming Iraq for 9/11, and since we're fighting an insurgency in Iraq, the war there has no bearing on stopping worldwide terrorism.
Stopping for a moment to ignore the cost of flying these diverse people from around the globe, as well as accommodations while they visit, if Bush had put as much effort into rebuilding New Orleans as he has into selling us this quagmire, the city would be fixed and almost back to normal. I seriously have my doubts whether these people will actually come from said countries, or come from central casting. Why is Bush spending so much effort to try spin a war that's spinning out of control?
The neocons agenda, reshaping a new middle east, has put Iran in their sights next. Even though the IAEA found no tangible evidence that Iran has a nuclear weapon program, and Russia has rejected sanctions against Teheran, we still will be going to war with Iran, which is why the rhetoric has switched from alQaeda to "Islamic Fascists", because there is no alQaeda in Iran. But he can't continue on with the neofascist agenda if he's losing support from the American people.
