PEACE ANYONE?

Now that there is no more George W. Bush to lambaste, there is obviously nothing happening in Iraq worth reporting anymore – at least not on any large scale or in any detail. Whereas at one time, there were two fronts in the War on Terror being recklessly and carelessly fought to decisive American defeats – as the mainstream media were all too happy to try and convince the American people at every conceivable turn – the departure of the Cowboy President has facilitated the departure of war coverage.

Oh sure, if you look for it, you’ll find some tidbits here and there on the war – especially if a fresh new angle on how President Bush can be retroactively savaged for it is hit upon by an enterprising young journalist – but for the most part, it’s faded from the front burners of the American psyche.

Corporate America is the new Taliban now.

Prior to the Messianic take over of the White House, a mere glimpse at the mainstream news outlets would have convinced even the most disinterested patrons that America was embroiled in the deadliest, most-contentious battles in its history, facing catastrophic defeat with unprecedented casualties.

Since the Messianic Age began, one might have a hard time realizing that this nation was at war at all. Not only are the words “War on Terror” a no-no anymore (by Obamacratic decree), but what have turned out to be the deadliest bombing attacks in a year in Iraq are getting very little play.

I bet you didn’t realize peace had broken out.

From Friday’s New York Times:  

A deadly outburst of violence appears to be overwhelming Iraq’s police and military forces as American troops hand over greater control of cities across the country to them. On Friday, twin suicide bombings killed at least 60 people outside Baghdad’s most revered Shiite shrine, pushing the death toll in one 24-hour period to nearly 150.

Like many recent attacks, the bombings appeared intended to inflame sectarian tensions, to weaken Iraq’s security forces and to discredit its government. 

From Thursday’s Times:

The overall level of violence in Iraq is at its lowest since the American invasion in 2003, and Iraqis have been venturing out to parks, restaurants and nightclubs. But a string of recent attacks, highly organized and carried out under tight security, has raised worries that Baathist and jihadi militants are regrouping into a smaller but still lethal insurgency seeking to reassert itself as the American troop presence on the ground is reduced before a full withdrawal in 2011.

Recall that President Obama announced to the world as part of his “Eroding America’s Strength and Greatness Campaign” the precise date of comprehensive American withdrawal from the Iraqi theater.

No one can accomodate anenemy like our President can.

The moment Bam placed his tootsies upon the water, the war against Islamo-facism became irrelevant and the doomsday needle spun toward the economy  – and thus the war against capitalism and the free market began in earnest.
