How Sixteen Words Changed Our World.

“The British Government has learned that Saddam Hussein recently sought significant quantities of uranium from (Niger) Africa,” was a major lie and most everyone knew it.

But they were spoken by President George Bush during the 2003 State of the Union address, and the world suddenly faced a new reality. Not a realistic reality but a Bush reality and, it soon became most everyone’s reality.

The lie that led us to attack Iraq all started when Elisabetta Burba, an investigative reporter for Panorama, a newsweekly in Italy, contacted the U.S. Embassy in Rome, regarding some questionable documents alleging that Niger, a nation in Africa was going to sell Mr. Hussein “500 tons of uranium.” By the time President Bush got around to mentioning in his address, the rest of the world, including our own intelligence agencies had already dismissed the documents as bogus.

Even Weird Wally was shocked to hear those sixteen words because, while waiting for his appointment at the public defender’s office, he happened to pick up either Rolling Stone or, the New Yorker magazine and had read all about it many months earlier. Surely, the president was getting better intelligence then WW.

Even before Ms. Burba’s innocent act of verifying some journalistic leads at the embassy, the trail leads back to a shadowy figure named, Rocco Martino, and SISMI, the prime Italian intelligence agency.

According to the Washington Post, “It remains unclear who fabricated the documents. Intelligence officials say most likely it was rogue elements in Sismi who wanted to make money selling them.”

But WW feels that that is only half the story and that that seed was planted and nurtured until ripe and plucked for the 2003 State of the Union address.

And, so what if a few dudes and dudas may have made megabucks while moonlighting as farmers for a very poisonous fruit that they eventually sold to us stupid fucks in the USA.

On the other hand, all evidence points to the creator of that poisonous fruit seed being none other then, Dick Cheney

Trust me,

This comes as nothing new to me. Been watching it all along and I can't believe how much Dick Cheney and Don Rumsfeld got away with.

They ripped us off and neither their children nor grandchildren will ever have to work again, and us poor and middle class folks are paying for it.

Does that make you feel better about Halliburton, tax cuts for the rich and all that other spin shit that so many of us are buying?

Although my kids and grandkids won't have health insurance or, much else, for that matter,it warms my heart to know that the Bush/Cheney children and their hairs will never have to work again, despit the fact that my children and grandkids have to pay for the easy life that the Bush/Cheney hairs might live?

It's called "royalty," after all and we are too damn stupid to see it even as it looks us in the face.

And both Royalty and Religion are built on fear, even when we aren't being attacked.
