What kind of leader orders troops into a country that has been brought to it’s knees by 13 years of sanctions, where hundreds of thousands were killed by lack of medical supplies and food, then executes their leader and takes control of their oil. What is that? Is that what Geoffrey Hart was telling us we must do?
This is what we have. This is the begining of the end of our Constitutional Republic. We don’t live there anymore. After almost seven years with this corrupt, megalomaniac psychopath in the White House, this is where we are.
In 1945 Herman Goring and Rudolph Hess and the leadership of the SS, and the Gestapo were given fair trials in Nuremberg for their war crimes. Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Gonzales, General Peter Pace, and General Petraeus deserve exactly the same treatment given to the German High Command.
But no, the Harts will tell us it is our duty, as forthright Christian Soldiers to support George Bush and his puppet master and the glorious all powerful American military machine as they annihilate the evil Islamic Jihadists. General Peter Pace recently said when asked about Iraq “George Bush is doing God’s work” This is how our foreign policy works. First God talks to Bush. Then Bush speaks with Peter Pace. (chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff) Peter Pace nods his head in agreement and passes his orders down to General Petreaus, who implements God’s will on the ground in Iraq. With all this divine guidance, how can we be doing so poorly in Iraq? Was something lost in translation, or has God just lost his knack for conquering Arabs?
What the hell is the difference between Osama Bin Laden ordering his troops to kill the infidels in the name of Allah, and George Bush ordering his troops to kill the Jihadists in the name of the Lord. They are both insane. Religion has no place in government. Thomas Jefferson knew this. James Madison knew this.
I want a return to sanity. This is going to take a lot of work. It starts right here at the grassroots. It starts with individual citizens of Trumansburg talking to their neighbors and their village board members. It starts with somebody convincing John Hrubos that this is not a waste of time. It starts with somebody convincing Chris Thomas that the benefits of listening to the majority of the people and doing what he knows is right, outweigh the potential detriments.
I know it’s late in Bush’s last term. I don’t care. I want him impeached because it’s the right thing to do. I will continue to call for his impeachment until January 20th 2009. If he isn’t impeached by then, then I will call for him to be tried for war crimes. We can not let this stand. We must send a clear signal to America, our children, and the rest of the world that the people of Trumansburg asked for justice.
I want to thank Mayor Petrovic and David Filiberto for allowing us to have the meeting on the 24th, and for their support for the resolution. I am very disappointed in the result of the vote. We wanted more than to be heard. We want to be part of the solution. Now we have to return to being part of the problem. Now we must go about our business, and pay our taxes to fund further death and destruction. I have some hope that Chris Thomas and John Hrubos will come to their senses. David Filiberto might make another motion to pass the resolution sometime before he leaves next March. Perhaps he will wait until evidence of the next impeachable offense comes to light, so pay attention, and think real hard, because you might get a chance to redeem yourselves.
Finally, my dear Mr. Hart, I do not hold out any hope for you. I doubt you will ever be able to see the truth. You implied that I called your soldier friend a baby killer. I did not. What I will say is that the responsibility for the death of innocent Iraqi children goes far beyond your brave, honest, forthright christian soldier. It is your responsibility. My responsibility. All of us are are responsible for the horrifying events ongoing in Iraq, and to deny that responsibility is abhorrent. Clearly the two criminals named in our resolution bear the most responsibility, because they led the country to war on a pack of lies.
