    Sounds like a lot of you Democratic voters are having a lot of sour grapes. Ah well. Can't bitch this time.

    Even I'm surprised by this election. I didn't even look at the coverage (which early on was projecting a Kerry landslide victory) until around 11:30 PM CST. Bush, for all intents and purposes, has won this thing decisively in a way that couldn't have been claimed by either candidate in 2000. Mathemetically, the only way Kerry could win is if he wins something like 80 percent of all absentee and provisional votes. But in Ohio, the state in question, has something like 170,000 provisional votes, a lot of which will probably be invalid.

    Mathematically, it just doesn't seem possible for Kerry to win.

    you kids will grow up some day and understand that the way you think isnt the way everyone thinks

    and to whoever said "bush wouldnt even go on BET of the Daily Show" is the biggest idiot on this site. Why would or should Bush go on a comedy show and a music video and drug movie channel?

    The people voted Bush into office because the people wanted him there.

    The Rhetoric of Absolutes



    9/11 is perhaps the most infamous succession of numerals in the global community’s recent history. The hijacking, and subsequent use of four aircraft filled with innocent civilians as giant warhead-less missiles, has jump-started the world into a new epoch laden with fear and paranoia. The sentiments that characterize the global community today are unmistakably linked by rhetoric employed by the world’s leading governments. At the forefront is a United States government that encourages others to “rid the world of evil-doers” and eradicate the “evil scourge of terrorism” (http://www.zmag.org/content/showarticle.cfm?SectionID=11&ItemID=2063). On September 20th, 2001, nine days after the tragedy of September 11th, George W. Bush addressed the world on the principal issues at hand. In his speech, he referred to the “terrorist organization known as Al-Qaeda” as “murderers” who are “a fringe movement that perverts the peaceful teachings of Islam.” Bush further described Al-Qaeda’s motives and ideologies, stating that “their directive commands them to kill Christians and Jews, to kill all Americans and make no distinctions among military and civilians, including women and children” (http://archives.cnn.com/2001/US/09/20/gen.bush.transcript/). Bush’s effort to paint Al-Qaeda as a group beyond the limits of human decency and behavior, as a group that no civilized person could sympathize with, was met with open arms. In turn, his rhetoric garnered the sympathy of the global community and encouraged them to aid the U.S. in its effort to find and destroy its attackers. As black and white as Bush’s rhetoric may seem, it was integral in unifying a shocked nation and rallying unprecedented support from much of the rest of the world. However, after a relatively quick and successful campaign in Afghanistan, Bush steered his coalition towards war with an Iraqi regime headed by Saddam Hussein, the same regime that his father went to war with a decade earlier. In his State of the Union address on January 29th, 2002, Bush portrayed Iraq as a regime that has plotted to develop anthrax, and nerve gas, and nuclear weapons for over a decade,” and “a regime that has something to hide from the outside world” (http://www.whitehouse.gov/news/releases/2002/01/20020129-11.html). Despite explicit evidence today that shows that the U.S. never had any verifiable proof that Iraqi weapons of mass destruction existed, Bush clearly insinuates that the U.S. has knowledge of their existence in his 2002 State of the Union address. With these allegations, Bush then assures the American people that his administration “will work closely…to deny terrorists and their state sponsors the materials, technology, and expertise to make and deliver weapons of mass destruction,” and to “develop and deploy effective missile defenses to protect America and [their] allies from sudden attack” (http://www.whitehouse.gov/news/releases/2002/01/20020129-11.html). Bush’s rhetoric of absolutes – “good” and “evil,” “light” and “dark” – spiced with devices such as color coded terror alerts, drives fear into the American people, while his rhetoric of protection persuades them into believing that he is their protector and he and his administration will never again let harm come to them.
    Such rhetoric has continued to serve the Bush administration’s agenda for the most part, but it becomes ineffective when investigated closer. In the same State of the Union address as the one used above, Bush referred to North Korea, Iran, and Iraq as “an axis of evil, arming to threaten the peace of the world” (http://www.whitehouse.gov/news/releases/2002/01/20020129-11.html). Strangely enough, “the singling out of these particular nations as evil, however, invites the question of why the Bush administration failed to include U.S.-supported nations that violate human rights on a comparable scale, such as Columbia or Saudi Arabia” (Rampton & Stauber, Pg. 115). In particular, the U.S.’s relationship with Saudi Arabia has clearly hurt its credibility for its war on terror. According to William Weschler, director of the National Security Council, financial backing from Saudi Arabia makes up much of the money raised by Al-Qaeda’s “constant fundraising machine” (http://www.travelbrochuregraphics.com/extra/saudi_connection.htm). In the last 25 years, no other country has been so directly responsible for the spread of radical and fundamentalist Islamic terrorist groups – the very same groups that U.S. officials at the highest level have vowed to “hunt down and kill,” – as Saudi Arabia, the world’s largest producer of crude oil, and a major business partner of America. The desert nation’s charities have been used to rake in billions of dollars for the sole purpose of funding these Jihad factions, facilitating their proliferation and increasing sophistication. In the face of these glaring ideological discrepancies, the U.S. has been persuaded to “look the other way, [as] some veteran intelligence officers say. Billions of dollars in contracts, grants, and salaries have gone to a broad range of former U.S. officials who had dealt with the Saudis: ambassadors, CIA station chiefs, even cabinet secretaries” (http://www.travelbrochuregraphics.com/extra/saudi_connection.htm).

    Incidents of U.S. officials defending, and even supporting the oppressive Saudi monarchy are not few and far between. When asked about the alleged funding of one of the September 11th hijackers by a Saudi princess, White House public relations man responded by saying “Saudi Arabia is a good partner in the war against terrorism but can do more” (Rampton & Stauber, Pg. 103). In light of these facts, the U.S. still successfully convinces the American public that they are looking out for their best interests, and their reasons for what they say and do are, in the end, justified by results, and are morally and ethically in the right. Unfortunately, morality has not played any part in American avoidance of the African continent, particularly Somalia, where “continued armed confrontations, fierce political rivalry and intense competition for the meager resources in many parts of the country for a long period of time [have] resulted in immense human tragedy and untold suffering to the Somali people, particularly the most vulnerable” (http://www.beerlula.com/2004/ad/crd/crd.htm). Perhaps the continued suffering of the Somali people could have been avoided if the U.S. had not pulled its troops from the country in the mid-90’s. Interestingly enough, rumors of a U.S. reoccupation of Somalia have surfaced, conceivably because of oil rights that have been bought by “several billion-dollar oil companies…who want ‘law and order’ in Somalia so they can pump out the oil. In fact, Conoco, the oil company that has the largest holdings in Somalia, has allowed the U.S. troops to use Conoco headquarters in Mogadishu as a command post and de facto embassy” (http://www.netnomad.com/poster.html). Yet the U.S. continually pledges its support of morals and ethics, while continually denying that big business and expensive cars drive its politics – politics that include the dealing with, funding, and supplying of terrorists to further American power. The official U.S. definition of “terrorism” dictates that it is “the calculated use of violence or threat of violence to attain goals that are political, religious, or ideological in nature...through intimidation, coercion, or instilling fear” (http://www.chomsky.info/articles/20020702.htm). Similar to this definition is the term that the Bush administration coined for its opening barrage on Iraq, the phrase “shock and awe.” In addition, the objective of the “terrorist” is “to defeat the enemy psychologically through the systematic, calculated use of violence and threats of violence” (Rampton & Stauber, Pg. 132). The “shock and awe” tactic employed by the U.S. was designed to concentrate on “the psychological destruction of the enemy's will to fight rather than the physical destruction of his military forces” (http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2003/01/24/eveningnews/main537928.shtml). If the U.S. definitions of “terrorism” and “terrorist” are to be taken seriously, then the American government would not be called a government at all, but an extremely large and sophisticated terrorist faction. When the U.S. went into Iraq, they lost much of the support they had gained after September 11th and during Afghanistan. Unexhausted diplomatic negotiations and no proof of any weapons of mass destruction have isolated the U.S. in what many are calling a “modern-day Vietnam,” but as long as the American people are convinced that Bush is their protector, then his administration will continue to hawk for the purpose of reelection. The American government has long used a rhetoric of absolutes and/or protection to justify the same actions it condemns – as long as the ends justify the means in the fight of “good” versus “evil.”

    If that was some pea-brained half-assed attempt at intelligentsia, throw on those wire-frame glasses you hide in your drawer when you show girls your room (and I'm hoping for your sake that this has occurred), and try looking a little closer at how much I care.













    See anything yet?









    No?









    I wonder why.
