In case you missed it yesterday, President Bush compared soldiers in Iraq to the US soldiers during the Revolutionary War. Actually, we're more like the British, and the insurgents, which are being tagged "alqaeda" by the administration, even though there is no connection, they are the ones fighting off an occupation army intent on exploiting the vast resources of the country for King George.
Of course going into Iraq the US disputed a report that the US wanted long term access to bases in Iraq. Now, of course it's a different story. Even Hillary Clinton wants full time bases in Iraq (which is her way of sucking up to the corpocracy, and why she sucks). Which reminds me of an old joke. How do you know when George Bush is lying? When Dick Cheney's lips aren't moving.
