Blair’s lament

Tony Blair repeatedly and unsuccessfully raised concerns with the White House over the lack of planning in the weeks leading up to the invasion of Iraq. Countering warnings from advisors, he said,

“Look, you know, I can’t do everything. That’s chiefly America’s responsibility, not ours”.

Uncle Sam quits the USA“The reasons for impeaching Bush and Cheney exceed by many multiples all the reasons for impeaching every president combined in US history. The reasons have been enumerated many times and do not need repeating. If members of Congress were faithful to their oaths of office to uphold the Constitution, Bush and Cheney would already have been impeached and convicted.” – Paul Craig Roberts

p.s. I think Roberts is extreme, but he’s part of a growing tribe of conservatives becoming honest with their convictions rather than merely loyal followers.

DailyKos has a fun post – excellent points, comments and illustrations – that repeats Roberts’ claim that “the US government is in the hands of dangerous psychopaths who are a disgrace to the human race and who should be arrested as war criminals and turned over the the Hague.”
