Confirmation of the Downing Street Memo, and Worse

Editor & Publisher has posted information about news that is breaking in Britain that confirms revelations in the Downing Street Memo. The information also outlines plotting between President Bush and British Prime Minister Blair on how best to incite a war with Iraq.

Revelations like this are becoming so commonplace that Americans are beginning to yawn at evidence of illegal and corrupt practices in high places.

Sooner or later, -- undoubtedly when they finally realize that Jesus is not going rapture them from the great tribulations they are watching unfold -- a majority of the sleepwalkers in America are going to wake up to the reality that policies they have ignored or supported are making life a nightmare for generations to come.

Incite a war? Are you serious Dad? Yes there has been some serious mistakes made in the running of this war. But we just cannot tuck tail and run. We have to stay the course. What kind of message would we send to our enemies if we just left today. The liberal faction of the Democratic party wants us to be defeated so that they can reclaim the power in which they have been lusting for since 2000. Victory is a strategy. It is the only way. A policy of defeatism did not win World War II but a policy of victory is what won the war. War is no pleasant matter but it is a neccessary check in history that when cashed has brought down and destroyed some the most heinous, ruthless, barbaric, and destructive regimes the world has ever seen. An excerpt from The Art of War by Sun Tzu that best describes the War on Terror " We can form a single united body, while the enemy must split up into fractions. Hence there will be a whole pitted against separate parts of a whole,which means that we shall be many to the enemy's few.And if we are able thus to attack an inferior forcewith a superior one, our opponents will be in dire straits."

"For in this modern world, the instruments of warfare are not solely for waging war. Far more importantly, they are the means for controlling peace. Naval officers must therefore understand not only how to fight a war, but how to use the tremendous power which they operate to sustain a world of liberty and justice, without unleashing the powerful instruments of destruction and chaos that they have at their command."

Admiral Arleigh Burke, CNO, 1 August 1961

I call this a discussion about how to "incite" a war:

The lawyer's book also claims Bush told Blair the United States had considered a possibility of "flying U2 reconnaissance aircraft with fighter cover over Iraq, painted in U.N. colors." Bush allegedly claimed that if Iraqi forces fired at the aircraft, the country would be in breach of existing U.N. resolutions.

My recommendation to Joshua t. clark is to read William Asbury's War in the Shadows. Particularly the points he makes of winning a guerilla war -- in that when you are fighting a war of idea, you must first have a better idea. So far we have shown we can kill and blow things up, but we have demonstrated any moral superiority to the regime we have replaced.
