Official US Government policy approving of the use of torture justifies the immoral, illegal, brutal, inhumane, demeaning, fascist behavior of Our Glorious Christian Leader by pretending that Our Glorious Christian Leader is not subject to laws made by mere international treaties signed by the USA. The Pentagon is covering their ass.
The memo was written by John Yoo, who was then deputy assistant attorney general for the Office of Legal Counsel under Alberto “Torture Time” Gonzales, a primary enabler of faith-based torture initiatives.
While the so-called legal opinion does not actually say that Our Glorious Christian Leader answers directly to God, it has been widely reported that God told Our Glorious Christian Leader to engage in an illegal conspiracy to promote a war of aggression based on a pack of lies.
Of course since Jesus H. Christ told Our Glorious Christian Leader that he should invade Iraq this means he was delegating authority, and with authority directly from his Imaginary Bearded Sky Daddy, it seems obvious that Our Glorious Christian Leader should not be subject to the laws of mere mortals. Praise Him!

For many, many years people who are afflicted with religious delusions have prayed to an imaginary super-pal for an end to the Fidel Castro regime in Cuba. Now Castro has announced his retirement. The question we have is, if the most powerful Imaginary Bearded Sky Daddy in all of make believe land wanted Castro to be out of office, why did it take so long?
During the infamous Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba there were lots and lots of Catholics praying for a successful killing, in His mercy of course. Deadly death did they pray for, but Castro survived that dismal failure.
Surely the big butch all powerful super duper big in the sky guy can handle one overweight elderly dictator in very poor health? But despite all of the pious prayers of the faithful communist haters, the worst harm that has befallen Castro is colon surgery? Hell, I’ve had colon surgery, and hardly anybody prays for my death, as far as I know. Not that I would mind, of course, because if there is one thing that the human race is very quickly learning and plugging in to their mindset it is that Nothing Fails Like Prayer.
As America celebrates Veterans Day today, we are reminded not only of those who have served their nation so bravely in the past, but also of the thousands of men and women at risk today because of a war of aggression that was sold to an unsuspecting nation by a propaganda campaign based on a pack of lies.
Right wing pundits aside, the fact is that liberal scum do not want our soldiers to die. Unlike some who speak out fervently in favor of this shameful war, the New York intellectual liberal elite realize that the best way to show our support for our soldiers is to stop wasting their lives in a war we have already lost.
If the real goal of our invasion was to find the alleged WMD, it has been a complete failure. If the real goal of our illegal campaign was to bring Democracy to Iraq, then we have failed as it is rejected by the people of Iraq on a daily basis. If the real goal of our invasion of a country that had absolutely nothing at all to do with terr’ism and 9/11 was to decrease terr’ism, then our failure is so immense as to be incalculable.
We have never found the WMD because the liars telling us they were there knew perfectly well that they did not exist. We have never found the sooper-seekrit nukular research facilities described in such detail by Darth Cheney, because he is a lying toerag who knew quite well his entire nukular weapons scam was a pack of lies and nothing else. Perhaps Darth wanted to throw a few hundred billion dollars to his pals at Halliburton, where he was the CEO before moving to the supply side of the US murder by war industry.
We have found thousands and thousands of terr’ists, and quite often they have found us, but they were not terr’ists or they were not in Iraq until after our illegal, immoral, unjust and ill-advised war of aggression based on a scandalous and well calculated pack of lies.
So now we have a situation in which our brave young men and women must constantly defend themselves from terr’ists who would not even be terr’ists in the first place if we had not invaded their country and caused over a million deaths all for reasons that we continue to lie about to this sad and mournful Veterans day.
Let us show our brave fighting forces that we do really care about them, let’s bring them home while they are still alive.

A coalition of human beings is presenting a united front against the right wing hatemongering liar and uber idiot Rush Limblob in reaction to his recent shameless attack on US veterans exercising the freedom of speech they have defended.
Limblob attacked a caller to his moronic talk radio program when the gentleman suggested many Iraq war veterans were opposed to the continuing futile imperialist adventure.
The closest Limblob has ever been to a war was the war on drugs, and he was on the wrong side then just like he is now.
But now real soldiers who have really been to Iraq and really seen the horrors brought on by the Bush/Vader war machine are speaking out, so Limblob calls them fake soldiers.
Shup up, Limblob, and listen to the human beings for a change.
Our Glorious Christian Leader has bravely visited a very, very heavily armed military base in the conquered colonial nation of Iraq. In a stunning display of his world famous intellectual skills, Our Leader announced that he had conceived of the idea that it might be possible to consider bringing home a few of the troops he sent to invade a nearly unarmed country based on a pack of lies.
Jesus’ favorite warmonger also was filled with glee at the over 3% reduction in violence that was achieved by a statistician using various samples and time frames until eventually he came up with a Powerpoint slide that seemed to indicate a slight reduction in terr’ism when viewed in the narrow context that pleased Our Glorious Christian Leader.
It should be noted that only 4 years have passed since Our Glorious Christian Leader gleefully announced Mission Accomplished, in his butch jet fighter outfit, as a result of our successful destruction of the infrastructure in Iraq.
Of course, the real reason we invaded Iraq is whatever dumbass soundbite is currently getting the best reaction at American Legion posts across the country. Recently our reason to invade Iraq was to stop the sectarian violence that coincidentally did not start until we completely fucked over the entire nation that had brazenly done nothing at all to harm the USA with the completely fabricated WMDs they never had in the first place and we damn well fucking knew it because they were invented as an excuse by Our Glorious Christian Leader and his war crimes co-conspirators to funnel billions of dollars to the “Defense” Industry. Who gives a shit about the hundreds of thousands of bodies?
Our Glorious Christian Leader has finally admitted that our illegal imperialist invasion of Iraq based on a pack of lies is similar to our illegal imperialist invasion of Vietnam based on a different set of lies many years ago.
In both cases the nations we were forced to attack were in the final stages of preparations for invading and enslaving the entire US mainland. The Iraqi’s were just about to launch their 3 man Navy in a speedboat left over from the Iran/Iraq war, and, after stopping to refuel 18 times while crossing the Atlantic Ocean, they would have arrived at New York City 2 months later and finished off the destruction of Manhattan that had been started in 2001 by Osama Bin Hussein.
Vietnam, many years earlier, had been in the process of outfitting a fleet of 12 wooden fishing boats with which they intended to sail into San Francisco Bay and immediately create a network of Pho restaurants from which they could dispense poison-laden rice noodle soup to the hippies in the Bay Area, thereby destroying US morale and forcing an immediate and unconditional surrender.
If we had not attacked Osama Bin Hussein in Baghdad we would have had to do ship to ship combat in the New York harbor area, putting the Statue of Liberty at risk for a friendly fire accidental incident. This could reduce tourism dollars.
Of course there are a few slight differences. In Vietnam we appointed a puppet government and then used the puppet government to request US “assistance”, in the form of us going there and killing hundreds of thousands of the people that lived there for trying to select their own form of government without US approval.
In the case of Iraq, we went there first, killed a bunch of people, and then installed a government that immediately announced a powerful urge to have some random group of foreigners come in and start killing the local people. It is clear that the Vietraq war is a much greater success than Vietnam was, since in Iraq we were already there killing people before the puppet government asked us to kill people – making our Mission Accomplished an instantaneous result. As soon as our troops rolled in to Baghdad we had already won the Iraq war.
In Vietnam we did not win until the last helicopter left the US fortress, er, embassy in a hail of gunfire from confused locals who delusionally thought they wanted a local government not run by the benevolent, mass-murdering USA.
We continue to be amazed at the brilliant tactical analysis produced on a daily basis by Our Glorious Christian Leader and his highly competent staff of reality deniers and oil exploration equipment salesmen. Our Glorious Christian Leader, like Presidents Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, and Nixon before him, has the wisdom to realize that it is primarily the people in non-Caucasian nations that are most interested in having American troops invade their countries and kill their citizens.
British military officers are speaking out in public against the imperialist invasion of Iraq that was based on a pack of lies. While the officer involved accurately says that the war is illegal, immoral and unwinnable, he forgets to mention what a big hit it is with Fundamentalist Christians.
True, it was based on a pack of lies. Yes, it is a clear violation of the Nuremberg Principles and international law. Certainly killing hundreds of thousands of people is as immoral as any other crime against humanity. But at least Fundamentalist Christians support the ongoing slaughter as championed by Our Glorious Christian Leader.
It seems that as long as Our Glorious Christian Leader continues to pretend to be a Christian, the 28% of Americans that do not profess complete disgust with him will continue to be hoodwinked and fooled and just love every minute of it too.
Of course the other 72% of Americans have woken up from their five year nap and noticed that claims of Mission Accomplished were nothing more than media-propagated propaganda.
And some Americans seem to disapprove of the ongoing futility of pointless slaughter that benefits corporations like Halliburton and Exxon/Mobil but brings only harm to human beings.
Fortunately we can count on the Demoncratic Party to do everything they possibly can to seem to be opposed to the ongoing US corporate rape of Iraq.
And there are plenty of US military officers who feel the same way as this outspoken British officer, plenty of them.
Stay the course.
In an extreme perversion of the meaning of Memorial Day, the New York Times reported in their Memorial Day edition that the US military is trying to reduce press coverage of those killed in our immoral imperialist invasion based on a pack of lies. The article, which discusses marketing and brand name issues, appears in the Media and Advertising sub-section of the Business pages in the New York Times.
America, you are now totally and completely fucked. Even now there are marketing studies and brand name research being done to support the selling of our next war of naked imperialist aggression. Marketing executives who wear three piece suits and drive BMWs are trying to decide which types of propaganda and lies will work best.
As long as our media continue to sugar coat the casualties of war, and as long as they conspire with oil baron administrations to sell new wars to a naive public that would rather watch American Idol than consider the impact of dropping bombs on cities far way, this country will continue its downward spiral into fascism.
It is good to pay homage to those who are brave enough and unselfish enough to put their lives on the line for what they believe, they are indeed heroes and worthy of our respect and gratitude. But the death of a soldier is incidental to their function, it is an undesired and undesirable side effect. The function of military personnel is to kill foreigners on behalf of the God/State. We need to keep that in mind.
It is this killing that contributes to most of the deaths in a war. It is not pretty, and anyone that tries to sell you a new war should be sent to Guantanamo for a very long vacation. People that try to sugar coat war for a living are doing a great disservice to their nation and their planet. Advocating war or glorifying the acts of war should be treated in the same way as other forms of criminal and sociopathic behavior. Accurate reporting of the effects of war are a pre-requisite for achieving peace, but the US Military is in the business of war, nothing threatens that industry more than peace or rumors of peace.
It is no wonder that the US Military Industry is anxious to continue treating our imperialist wars as if they were some sort of a Disney film. It’s good for business.
An article by Justin Raimondo at AntiWar.com suggests that evil warlord and millionaire war profiteer Darth Cheney may be working on a plan B in case his little stooge, Our Glorious Christian Leader, continues to balk at the idea of war with Iran.
As a leading force in the warmongering neocon coalition Cheney wants to continue paving the Middle East with their thoroughly discredited Democracy at the point of a gun philosophy. He does not seem to care whether the people want an end to the pointless killing in the Middle East, as long as companies like Halliburton and Exxon/Mobil keep making obscene profits, Darth Cheney is a happy demon. It is clear that the neocons consider the people of the USA as little more than a source of cannon fodder for their profit making imperialist adventures.
With Our Glorious Christian Leader reluctant to proceed against Iran, Justin Raimondo wonders if Darth will enter into a new conspiracy to promote an attack on Iran by the Israelis.
As long as the end result is more death, more destruction, and more survivors motivated to become terr’ists, Cheney and his evil gang of neocon thugs will be happy with the continued profits made by their bloodsucking corporate pals.
Four years ago today Our Glorious Christian Leader landed on an aircraft carrier safely parked off the California coast, and with a giant banner declaring “Mission Accomplished” behind him, he declared that major conflict had ended, and our imperialist invading forces, acting on a pack of lies, had won the war. According to our Faith-Based Leader, nothing was left except the mopping up, and of course finding those ten thousand carefully hidden Weapons of Mass Deception, er, Destruction.
Not much later the White House department of Faith-Based Historical Adjustment, the folks who make up slogans like “We have always been at war with Eurasia”, did a wee bit of editing of Our Glorious Christian Leader’s speech that he bravely made off the coast of California.
I’m sure the 3,000 US Soldiers and the several hundred thousand Iraqis who have died since Our Glorious Christian Leader’s victory speech were glad to know that their deaths were not in vain, since large American corporations continue to make huge profits on the war against an abstract noun. And there is no danger of terror surrendering and ending the party, since abstract nouns can’t surrender and our imperialism inspires more acts against us every day.
During this war it has become apparent that there is no level of atrocity the US government might commit in foreign countries that is so extreme it would cause the citizens to require the resignation of our leaders. At least, not as long as cable TV prices don’t go up again.
Mission Accomplished, America is now addicted to war.
