Powell Sees A What?

In case you are wondering, I stole this post title from Dr. Seuss "Horton Hears A Who". Then I modified it slightly so as to not get sued. So there.

As you may be aware, CNN reported that Colin Powell said (in so many words or less) that Iraq is in a Civil War. The three stooges (Bush, Cheney, and whoever replaces Rumsfeld) will walk over hot coals to AVOID saying that.

But what would Colin Powell know about wars anyway? I mean, he was only a General in the US Army. Hell, a cook is of higher rank! Only 4 stars and he DARES to make such a statement? Who does he think he is to say stuff like that anyway? He must think he is some sort of expert in military stuff or something.

No, I do not believe it. I trust what Bush has to say about the state of affairs in Iraq over some highly decorated former 4 star General who had a long career of military service to the USA. Bush is the REAL expert here! When a lot of other people were going off to Vietnam, Bush could be heard saying THIS - even after he got his soft duty in the Air National Guard in Alabama. Maybe he should have a minstrel follow him around singing a tune similar to THIS?

But whatever. And here is why I think Bush is right about there not being a Civil War in Iraq. First off - there are NO MUSKETS! Everyone who reads US History knows that you can't have a civil war without a musket! Likewise, there are no cannon. And do YOU see any video from Iraq of people wearing blue or gray uniforms? Hell no! There are no horses, no Confederate Flags, no Emancipation Proclamations, no tall presidents wearing top hats, no steam trains, and no steam river boats. Look it all up - it is a FACT none of those things are in Iraq! And ALL of these things were around at the time of the American Civil War. I can fully understand why Bush refuses to use the term "civil war" in reference to Iraq.

So how could a mere retired 4 Star General say what Powell said? Obviously, he does not know what he is talking about. Good thing we have a President now who REALLY understands things!

When you 'stay the course' it doesn't include civil war.

Bush should be held accountable for his lies and treasons against the peoples of the republic.

Just the republic? What about the rest of the world?

You're right, no cannons. I think I did see a cow being shot from a catapult though. Are cowtapults a civil war weapon?

Don't you mean the War for Southern Independence ?

Anon - I do not know where a cow-a-pult would fit in on the timeline of weaponry. I will have to research that!

Fuzz - Don't you mean "the war of northern aggression"?

Of course Bush knows everything about war. NOT.

no one playing Dixie so there is no civil war

I forgot all about bands playing Dixie! More proof Bush can use to claim there is no civil war in Iraq.
