Shrub was not aware that gas will soon be $4 per gallon. And I just love the economic stimulus: pacify the apathetic and ignore real solutions.

Wasn't that al Qaida's strategy? To scare the crap out of us and destroy the economy?

And we walked right into the second half of their trap.

When one steps back and looks at this from a realpolitik perspective not colored by American interest, we look like fools.

Eisenhower's Ghost

What Ike said:

"This conjunction of an immense military establishment and a large arms industry is new in the American experience. The total influence — economic, political, even spiritual — is felt in every city, every statehouse, every office of the federal government. We recognize the imperative need for this development. Yet we must not fail to comprehend its grave implications. Our toil, resources and livelihood are all involved; so is the very structure of our society.

In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist."


Shrub is al Qaeda.
