The Lunacy Of The Powerful And Comfortable

based on a report by Chris Floyd. September 21, 2005

The war is lost.

Three years after the invasion, the occupation forces control less and less of the country all the time.

The level of wanton violence -- from all sides -- keeps rising. The physical infrastructure of the country continues to deteriorate.

The social fabric is in tatters. "Reconstruction" has degenerated into outright robbery and all-pervasive graft.

A piecemeal, many-sided civil war has begun.

Each day of the occupation is a fresh boon to violent Islamic extremism. Each day of the occupation further brutalizes and decimates the American military, sinking it deeper into the dishonor of serving a criminal cause: the illegal, unwarranted invasion and occupation of a sovereign country, on behalf of a radical political faction that deliberately lied its way into war.

Yet there is not a national leader on either side of the Atlantic -- even in the opposition parties -- who will stand up and speak the truth about the situation.

They all prattle, to one degree or another, about "staying the course" or "getting the job done" or "doing the job right."

This is sheer lunacy -- the lunacy of the powerful and comfortable, who never have to face the bloody, ruinous consequences of their pious rhetoric and empty posturing.
