Drudge has huge headlines:
GREENSPAN CLAIMS IRAQ WAR WAS REALLY FOR OIL"
I have been saying that here on Bradblog for years, and so have "6 or 7" other bloggers here.
The real shock is how brain dead the faux snooze is. The regime is composed of 99.9% lies and the joke on the MSM is that they try to make it sound true most of the time.

It is a bit like Bill Maher (who is a wannabe wus on the 9/11 issue) saying those who are skeptical about the bushie regime's 9/11 pet goat bedtime story should get professional help.
What a complete dork! The public has been polled and it has been reported here on Bradblog!
The professionals one would go to to get help are already skeptical about the bushie regime's 911 conspiracy theory for professional reasons.
So Billy-M and Bill-O are on the same page, and we are the ones who need to go talk to professionals?
The truth is that Maher has reached his truth chicken-shit zone and cannot fathom that war criminals could do a war crime.
His position is that the truth about 9/11 comes from the bushies????? Real solid logic there Billy-M, roll over Billy-M and tell Bill-O the faux snooze.
Brad, lets put up a new log-on banner along with the many classics already here ("be the media", "making the truth fun", "we are the blog, resistance is futile", etc. etc.).
Add one that says "Hey Bill Maher, we don't need no chickenshit faux snooze wimps round heaya" ...

They will continue to lie until they are challenged before the nation and the truth is revealed. The 2004 debates were a perfect forum to get the truth before a captive audience - the nation - but both Kerry and Edwards barely addressed the issue. Everything was so civilized and neither bush or cheney were called on the carpet for their treason. We knew in 2004 what the real reason for invading Iraq - their oil deposits - and the legislature was lied to - why didn't they call an ace and ace before national television!! Why bush invaded Iraq has a direct correlation to when he wants to leave! Obviously, bush and fellow oil barons want to tap oil for the next 10-20 years or longer at the expense of our children's and grandchildren's lives, so they are right on target!!! They have no intention of ever "exiting" Iraq! This is the reason for the rigged elections! Watch Fred Thompson. If he is elected prez (which could happen with the voting machine disaray!), be prepared for Iraq to be continued! He said in a speech in the Villages (audience of middle-upper middle class seniors) he would stay in Iraq. Sounds like a bush wannabe to me!!! Same hokey, down home drawl, same message - ugh!!

So maybe someone can explain this to me.
We start a war on terror because we lied about hitting ourselves and cried wolf.
We Blame the Mideast region and hit Afghanistan then Iraq under the pretenses that our national security isn't safe.
We keep the same minded leaders in office due to a manipulated voting system.
We want very badly to go after Iran.
And when everyone's heads are turned we open up all of our borders and create the North American Union.
So my question is
What is the exchange rate going to be for my new Amero currency? Cause I can't wait to use them. I mean our monetary system has always been flawed, the 2 dollar bill, case in point who DOESN'T want to see that puppy tossed in the trash?

"""""The number also includes Canada's one soldier who had been serving at the United Nations Assistance Mission in Iraq (UNAMI), who has since been withdrawn; New Zealand's single troop (yes, like Canada, just one!) commitment to UNAMI; """""
That means, if the one Canadian guy and the one New Zealand guy died in a Humvee accident, Bush wouldn't be lying if he said on TV the next day:
"WE MUST STAY IN IRAQ, BECAUSE THE ENTIRE CANADIAN AND NEW ZEALAND COALITION FORCES WERE WIPED OUT TODAY BY AL QUEADA."!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The world has grown too small for war. Killing doesn't lead to security; revenge gives no satisfaction; and war is a terrible expense with a zero return. The proximity of 5 billion people on the Earth, the immediacy of our connections to each other across all political and physical boundaries through the Net, and the horrors now readily visible in Iraq for everyone involved, expose the stupidity of war worldwide for the first time simultaneously to billions of people.
Nations, their citizens, and eventually their governments can no longer readily avoid the fact that the persons we are killing are fathers, brothers, wives, sisters, mothers, sons, and daughters. Many, perhaps all, have nothing to do with the bombing that started the conflagration. We can not walk away and say it has nothing to do with me just because I wasn't there.
I am responsible for the deaths of one million Iraqis. They have died in a war against fear that is being waged in my name and I am horrified. I swear to make it my purpose in life to work to bring the people who have lead us to war to war crimes tribunals, where they can be tried before the world for crimes against humanity.

We've sunk to appalling new depths when we have a sitting president appearing before the american people and spewing lies. This is abominable and a sick joke on the american people. "Bubble Boy" is so drastically out of touch with reality that he sits there, make-up overdone, hair slicked down with his hands clasped as though what he is saying has even the slightest shred of truth in it.
Bush has become (in this last prepared speech) the "poster boy" for serious profound and totally delusional psychiatric illness. Let's get him to a shrink quick. He's obviously not mentally "fit" to continue to remain in office.

We need impeachment proceedings based on continued lies to the american people. We can no longer accept this nadir in human behavior manifested by our commander in chief.
The "coalition" he refers to is the "crowd in his mind" - aka schizophrenia!

I thought the "Coalition in Iraq" has an understood meaning: all those countries' armies, under joint command with the United States, fighting or contributing military support to the Iraq War.
He didn't actually use the word "coalition" in the part of the speech Brad is mentioning ("... We thank the 36 nations who have troops on the ground in Iraq ...") but it is easy to read that into it, since every other instance of "troop" in the speech stands for a coalition troop. The personel of other countries in Iraq may also not be troops. So that part of the speech is both misleading and wrong.
It is unfair for Bush to give the "troops" label to countries, for instance, like Canada or other Nato or UN member states, that happen to now have military or other people in Iraq, doing training, humanitarian or other work, at the request of the Iraqi government. GWB doesn't speak for the Iraqi government, and shouldn't take it upon himself, especially with poorly chosen words, to offer their thanks. It might even endanger people, because some of those countries were not part of the "coalition", often do not have "troops", and are not involved in what the US-led coalition militaries do there. They certainly do not deserve to be military targets.
In a foreign policy speech, every word should be very carefully chosen.

Soon, very soon, the US troops will be the only foreign troops in Iraq because America will lose his last friend due to stubborn and incompetent Bush.
