If Bush was trying to galvanize all those who think he is the biggest oppresor of liberty and freedom in the US, then he did a bang-up job. I would say to the the President, "Okay cowboy! The judgment you just passed on other leaders and nations is the judgement to be passed on you. And how you measure others will be how we shall measure you."
To me his speach was a joke, since his administration not only deals with the scum of the earth, it actively supports them. Saudi Arabia, over the years has been and is the largest backer of militant islam. So we invade Iraq and have the crown prince of Saudi Arabia over to the ranch for tea. We target the Taliban, who's only finger in our eye was not giving up Bin Laden, while actively supporting the dictatorship in Pakistan that not only bankrolled the Taliban, but also has built atomic weapons and threatened to use them on India.
Then the toad Chenny talks about Iran as a big threat. To who? Good God almighty our buddies in slime pose far more risks to the earth than Iran. Again I ask you, who has nukes, sold atomic technology to others, and actively supported terrorism? Pakistan that is who. Who has tens of billions of dollars of the most advanced militray hardware in the mideast? Saudi Arabia has all that. Militant Islam was initially spread by Wahabi's. Where did they come from? They were the cheif clerics that lived in the desert with Abdul Aziz Bin Saud, the founding king of Saudi Arabia, and father to the ailing king Fahad, father of the dude Bush likes to have over the ranch. The rulers of Saudi Arabia are inextricably linked to Wahabi Islam.
Getting back to Bush's speach. He made it pretty clear that the only way we can keep our freedom is that he says it is okay. That is 1984. You have an endless war against terrorists so you can justify the errosion of freedom.
Also his well crafted remark about "freedeom" regarding retirement is a swipe as Social Security. And we all know sooooo well how retirement worked before Social Security: well actually we don't since none of us were born then. How it worked was something like this. If you were rich you got old and died rich. If you were middle class you got old and had to live with your kids and died poor. If you were poor you starved.
Now for the hard part. If people are going to protest the man please do us all a favor, and A: Do it in DC or NYC, and B: do it for weeks and months on end. Protesting in America is done like a softball game, or b lock party. "Hey lets do a protest. Afterwords we can go to Starbucks and get a Latte!"
If we want to bring this regime down there has to be millions of people in the streets and it has to last for weeks or months at a time. And, get this, there has to be an actual plan that the protestors are espousing, not just a "we hate Bush" plan.
