A one-time school project gone terribly, terribly wrong.

Just When You Think the Chimp Couldn't Get Any Worse

"Stupidity got us into this mess, and stupidity will get us out."
~Homer J. Simpson, also George W. Bush.
The video reveals a bare room with white walls and a black-and-white tiled floor, where abu Dan’s father is forced to sit and listen to his son’s shrieks of pain. Afterward, abu Dan says, he and two of the others were driven to a market square. “They told us they were going to kill us. They made us sit on the ground.” He rolls up the legs of his trousers to display the circular scars that are evidence of what happened next: “They shot our knees and feet—five bullets each. I spent four months in a wheelchair.”

Abu Dan had no way of knowing it, but his tormentors had a secret ally: the administration of President George W. Bush.

[...]

Vanity Fair has obtained confidential documents, since corroborated by sources in the U.S. and Palestine, which lay bare a covert initiative, approved by Bush and implemented by Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Deputy National Security Adviser Elliott Abrams, to provoke a Palestinian civil war. The plan was for forces led by Dahlan, and armed with new weapons supplied at America’s behest, to give Fatah the muscle it needed to remove the democratically elected Hamas-led government from power. (The State Department declined to comment.)

But the secret plan backfired, resulting in a further setback for American foreign policy under Bush. Instead of driving its enemies out of power, the U.S.-backed Fatah fighters inadvertently provoked Hamas to seize total control of Gaza.

What a joke. Wonder who's laughing? Probably not the Palestinians, and G-d knows not the Israelis.

Of course, he doesn't just repeat history (Bay of Pigs? Iran-Contra, anyone?), the idiot makes it. On March 8th, George W. Bush became the United States' first truly pro-torture president.

He has passed beyond all understanding or sympathy.
Im-₤µ¢λing-peach, already!

Of course, there is an alternative. And as a bonus, he'll finally get to show some genuine leadership:
"I must say, I'm a little envious," Bush said. "If I were slightly younger and not employed here, I think it would be a fantastic experience to be on the front lines of helping this young democracy succeed."

"It must be exciting for you ... in some ways romantic, in some ways, you know, confronting danger. You're really making history, and thanks," Bush said.
Me, I don't think he's too old. Some of his serving coporals are probably about his age.

I say the man deserves to partake in the excitement of this young "democracy" he has thus far allowed several hundred thousand people to die for.

OutRageous

Such Specie-ism

You compare a CHIMP

- one of the Good Lord's Better & Higher Forms of Life - sensitive - kindly - smiling & witty - not a threat to the Planet -

with a Politician and a SHRUB at that

It is History's revenge

- if those demm Yenkees hadn't used all that Iraqi oil to fuel their Shermans when forcing the Southern Middle Colonies to accept Motherhood, Apple-Pie and Union with the hereinbefore-mentioned Yenkees

- the Gentlemen of the South would not have had occasion to get their own back by sending not one but two SHRUBS tae 1600 Pennsylvania Avenoo

BUT in this regard, the Chimps amongst your avid fans echo Eeyore's observation to Winnie the Poo :

"I don't care who you blame,
as long as you don't blame me"

Yr obedent servant etc

@Herr EaGLe:

As sometimes, sie habt rechts (you have hit the nail upon the head).

I am ashamed at having grouped a primitive, base, instinct-driven tribe of primates with the noble chimpanzee.

However, I would point out that there is a vast difference between the three "South'rens" to have held the Alabaster Asylum.

M. Carter was genial, but ineffectual, with the best intentions.

Herr Klinton was venial, but effectual, with intentions from the mundane to the simply banal.

Sr. Bush, although from a Northeastern family, having adopted for his own the Tejas twang and belt-buckle posturing one can only see in that variety of humanity sufficiently priveleged to lose several million dollars before breakfast on bad oil deals, stupid investments, and the baseball team daddy bought for his birthday, qualifies as a southerner partly because no-one else would have him.

He is worse than ineffectual. A tool-using chimp could probably have governed better than he did.

In fact, historically at least one has. Who did you think was the real power behind Reagan?

Interestingly, that film was apparently about a human scientist attempting to teach human morals to a chimpanzee.

Now I understand why all those Repugnicans are so anxious for Reagan to arise from his grave--Only he could stand a chance of teaching human morals to Bush Jr.

Or perhaps it's just that, stacked beside Bush II, Reagan looks like a statesman, a genius even!

While I'm all for getting rid of Hamas in Palestine (democratically elected or not, they are terrorists), a civil war seems a pretty stupid way to go about it.

Was Israel involved in this at all? I'm curious.
