President George Bush’s bid for re-election is stalling as a result of the turmoil in Iraq, according to the results of an opinion poll that shows he has fallen behind in the race for the White House.
For the first time a test of the public mood has shown Mr Bush trailing his Democratic challenger, John Kerry, not just in the overall contest for the presidency but in what was considered his strongest suit: the fight against terrorism.

If this poll is accurate (and I admit that’s a big if), it looks like the tide is finally turning against Bush in the US. This is heartening news for any civilian who wishes to sleep safe in their bed at night without getting strafed by US weapons. How many thousands of lives in Iraq have been lost to Bush’s criminal crusade, his illegal attack on a non-aggressor nation? All those people murdered in the wild goose chase for WMDs that never existed… all the lives devastated by the US and UK’s use of cluster bombs. For what? The racist, imperialist agenda of PNAC. The extreme right-wing cabal behind the PNAC can legitmately be called neo-Nazis. Listen to this shite from William Kristol:
According to Kristol, the group’s thinking stemmed from the principles of Ronald Reagan: “A strong America. A morally grounded foreign policy… that defended American security and American interests. And understanding that American leadership was key to not only world stability, but any hope for spreading democracy and freedom around the world.” (Source: ABC News)
America, America, America – it’s like the rest of the world doesn’t even exist. Just what gives America the right to lead the world? Nothing but military superiority, the same justification of natural leadership beloved by the Nazis. The neo-Nazi PNAC cabal favours pre-emptive attacks against any enemies it deems a danger to their rule. The same justification used by Hitler for his invasions. They have carried out and are carrying out war crimes:
Article II Sec. 4 of the Constitution states that:”The President, Vice President and all Civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.” Boyle says that waging a war of aggression is a crime under the Nuremberg Charter, Judgment and Principles. “It’s very clear,” he adds, “if you read all the press reports, they are going to devastate Baghdad, a metropolitan area of 5 million people. The Nuremberg Charter clearly says the wanton devastation of a city is a Nuremberg war crime.” (Source: Impeach Bush)
Well, they did devastate Baghdad, in a blitzkrieg that would have made their political forebears proud. Remember all that gung-ho bullshit about ‘shock and awe?’ For ‘shock and awe’, read Ôbrutal mass murder of scores of innocent civilians.’ Since then, their troops have added torture to the list of war crimes. And these are the people who are promising us freedom and democracy?
*If* this poll is truly representative of US public opinion, perhaps it shows that the sleeping masses are finally waking up to the monstrous lies Bush and the other puppets of PNAC peddled in order to further their own imperialist agenda. Let’s hope that Bush gets the same electoral kicking in the US that Butcher Blair got recently in the UK.
Ever get the feeling you’ve been cheated?
