Having been on vacation I don't know if this got a lot of play, but in today's paper it states that the Saudi's are forgiving milions of dollars in debt to the Iraqi government and are sending over an Ambassador, since everything there is now hunky dorey.
Does anyone else see the Bush Administration orchestrating this positive spin on the war , as we lead up to the election? Gee, if the Saudi's are willing to establish official roots, it must be a real mission accomplished this time. Since the war was manufactured in the first place, seemingly they can pull it out just in time to say, see, we told you we could win. All along it's been a war of spin. People are dying for their greed.
Let us not forget that after 9-11, when families were separated and no plane in the US could take off except, oh yes, the Saudi royals living here. They might be subject to retaliation. I don't see why, just because most of the hijackers were from there. We could have given them safe havens until it was sorted out, instead they got to get out while no American citizen could fly home. The Bush Admin gave preference to the Saud's not the American people. That pretty much says it all, right there. Now it's payback time.
Does anyone want to bet that oil prices will plummet two weeks before the election? But if the voters fall for that, there is no hope left for our nation. We can overcome Bush if we stop him now but if he's allowed to steal his 3rd election we don't deserve to be called a democracy.
I really do think we're better than that. Even so, it rankles that Bush still thinks enough people are really that stupid. Did John McCain make a deal with the devil to gain his support for the President? It certainly appears that way.
