Combat Operations
The same day Rumsfeld announced it was over in Afghanistan, President Bush, in a May 1, 2003 televised speech from a U.S. aircraft carrier off the coast of California, announced that 'major combat operations' in Iraq have ended. Except for the continued killing of civilians, and moving from innocent women and children to uneducated protestors, who think liberation means free speech, not free artifacts, looted from unguarded museums. The wars, however, continue.
Next Year in Tehran
As U.S. officials, March 24, 2003, confirmed that prisoners had been taken, Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld said that if American prisoners were shown on television, then "those pictures are a violation of the Geneva Conventions...It is illegal to do things to POWs that are humiliating," Rumsfeld said on CBS' "Face the Nation." All while the United States obliterated Iraq with a "shock and awe" bomb display. Er, Charlton Heston.
Coalition of the Killing
More than 35 countries are giving half-hearted support, from the use of naval and air bases to help with intelligence and logistics to the deployment of combat units. Every nation in this coalition has chosen to bear the burden and share the shame of serving in America's unpopular preemptive offense so much so that many of them remain nameless and cowardly silent.
Regime Change
While the world witnesses the widest ever global protests, dismissed by the White House as misguided focus groups not worthy of listening to, America and Britain prepare to bestow on the Iraqis a blend of the polices of John Ahscroft and David Blunkett that will make the average Iraqi beg for the return of Saddam or a merciful dose of chemical weapons to self-destruct en masse.
