The only decent bloke in the Bush Administration was Colin Powell, who as Secretary of State then, was sabotaged every which way by Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld and the Wolfowitz-Feith-other-Zionists clique.
Powell continues to be the voice of conscience and notwithstanding the fact he has left the Administration, has recently called for the immediate closure of the draconian Guantanamo Bay for the military
He declared that all inmates from the military prison in Cuba into the US justice system (which will mean that at least they would be entitled to legal representation, which they currently aren’t).
He lamented: "We have shaken the belief the world had in the American justice system by keeping a place like Guantanamo open. It's caused far more damage than anything we get from it."
Powell said "some authoritarian figures "were using Guantanamo to "hide their own misdeeds".
Meanwhile, former Democrat US senator Joseph Lieberman, supposedly on the other side of the political fence but a known Democrat warmonger (he was tossed out of the Democratic Party but stood as an independent and won, and now represents Connecticut as such) wants the USA to seriously consider a military strike against Iran because of Tehran's alleged involvement with Iraqi insurgents.
He said: "I think we've got to be prepared to take aggressive military action against the Iranians to stop them from killing Americans in Iraq."
During the war, Lieberman has consistently supported the Bush Administration, and unsurprisingly, has been reputed to be the only Democrat trusted by George Bush. He even received a hug from the President.
He said that much of the action could probably be done by air, the shock and awe formula. However, having suggested that, he said he would leave the strategy to the generals in charge.
Incidentally Liberman had called himself an orthodox Jew though many orthodox Jews scoffed at his at-times lack of orthodox observations, like voting in Congress during the Sabbath and not wearing a yarmulke.
But like most neocon American Zionists he obviously sees Iran as a perpetual threat to Israel (rather than to American troops in Iraq, which may well be a case of happy coincidence).
Afterall, another neocon Zionist, a dear friend of you-know-who [look, I didn’t mention the name of the Malaysian connection, OK? ;-)] had been insistent and instrumental in the US bombing Iraq for 9/11, an act that could rather be more correctly traced to Saudi Arabia and Egypt. And that’s because Iraq which had nothing to do with 9/11 was a threat to Israel.
Anything for dear Israel, even with American lives (already more than 3500 in Iraq).
