Tiananmen 1989: Baghdad 2007

Today is Monday, 4 June 2007.

In response to the Christmas Bombing of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam (“North Vietnam”) in 1972, the great American pacifist organizer Al Hassler wrote, “We are governed by liars and lunatics”.

On this anniversary of the massacre of dissidents in Tiananmen Square in Beijing in 1989, this continues to be true of both the People’s Republic of China and the USA/USE.

In its latest fashion turn, the Bush-Cheney Junta is infatuated with a “Korean-Style Final Solution” to the Iraq Conquest: an American military occupation and dictatorship of 50 years and more. Presumably, the Iraqi population will have been exterminated in the meantime, leaving plenty of Lebensraum for American colonists.

Has it occurred to the Junta that Korea was a “conventional” war, with fixed front lines, while Iraq is a guerilla war with fluid lines? Does the Junta know apples from oranges, let alone it’s head from a hole in the ground?

The current crop of gangsters in The White House are as brutal, clueless, and desperate as the gangsters in Beijing in 1989. Their only solution to difficulties is to drown them in blood.

"Having sown the wind, reap the whirlwind".
