Yes, I know it's Thanksgiving preparation time but ... This is an article written by Dan Froomkin (link below.) It is so thorough and so well done that I am compelled to share it. It is entitled "The Two Most Essential, Abhorrent, Intolerable Lies of George W. Bush’s Memoir" surrounding his plagiarized book "Decision Points" that Bush is running all over country trying to sell. London told him he better not come to Europe lest he get arrested for war crimes!

If you ever wanted to acquire well supported evidence for the Bush lies surrounding Iraq, this is it. Okay, sure it might take a little bit to read it but my goodness, if as he says "More than 4,400 members of the U.S. armed forces have perished, with nearly 32,000 wounded in action, and somewhere in the ballpark of 500,000 more suffering from brain injuries, mental health problems, hearing damage and disease. Iraqi civilian deaths are estimated to number at least 100,000 and more than a million Iraqis have been displaced from their homes" is not reason enough then I do not know what is. These decisions must NEVER be allowed to happen again in this country IF we have any country left after the Bush annihilation presidency and now the takeover of the House by the wingnut-worse-than-Bush Republicans!

2012 may see the Republican take over the Senate and the presidency. Is it possible for something so reactionary to happen in the most powerful advanced nation on earth? In the film "Judgment at Nuremberg" one of the defendants in the German hierarchy who was charged with war crimes during the Nazi period asked his fellow inmate if it was possible that the culturally advanced German people could construct such a massive killing machine in such a technologically precise and sophisticated manner. The answer he was given: It's possible.

In the words of Edmund Burke "All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing."
