Bush says anti-war protests threaten to weaken the United States
And borrowing and pissing away billions every day for a pointless war started with lies isn't?

Hearing a drumbeat, Bush speaks,1,3625116.story?coll=chi-newsnationworld-hed
Bush said Tuesday that "immediate withdrawal" from Iraq would be a mistake. He also sought to portray his critics on Iraq as critics of the broader effort against terrorism, which remains more popular than the Iraq policy. Bush sought to paint protesters as opponents of engagement in the entire region, even though Sheehan and others have focused their criticisms on Iraq.

Bush to defend war on terrorism
Um isn't War, Terrorism? 100,000 Iraqi civilians killed by "smart " bombs. Anyway I thought they changed the name to the global struggle against violent extremism so they wouldn't get hanged for treason, during a time of war.

Bush Says Activist Doesn't Speak for Kin of Casualties
President Bush, confronted by antiwar protesters on his travels, Tuesday renewed his refusal to meet with high-profile activist Cindy Sheehan, asserting that she does not speak for the majority of families who have lost relatives in combat. Bush's quickly scheduled appearance came against a backdrop of antiwar protests that have sprung up during his three-day visit to Utah and Idaho, two politically Republican states. The president's sojourn from Texas suggested the protests threaten to bracket his appearances in ways that could complicate the White House's ability to argue for the Iraq policy and maintain support for it.

Demonstrators also were still trying to repair and replace about 150 crosses damaged when they were run over a week ago; Pro-War Bush supporter was arrested in connection with the incident.

Several people attending the protest boasted that they were from military families or had served in the armed forces.

President faces a new insurgency
Cindy Sheehan couldn't have picked a more apt date to begin the vigil that ambushed a president: Aug. 6 was the fourth anniversary of that fateful 2001 Crawford vacation day when George W. Bush responded to an intelligence briefing titled "Bin Laden Determined to Attack Inside the United States" by going fishing. On this Aug. 6, the president was no less determined to shrug off bad news. Though 14 Marine reservists had been killed days earlier by a roadside bomb in Haditha, his national radio address that morning made no mention of Iraq. Once again Bush was in his bubble, ensuring that he wouldn't see Sheehan coming. So it goes with a president who hasn't foreseen any of the setbacks in the war he fabricated against an enemy who did not attack inside the United States in 2001.

Bush Approval at All-Time Low in U.S.
36 per cent of respondents approve of their president’s performance, down six points since July.

Louis XVI thought he could not be beaten by the public. Charles the First thought so as well. So did Mussolini. So did Ceacescu. The US GHovernment is weaker than yuo might imagine. A revolution does not have to march into DC to bring the whole place down; a prolonged General strike would do it. The US Government is borrowing like crazy on the promise that it can continue to force We The People to makwe the payments. But if the restr of the world sees the American people start to say, "NO, I will NOT sell my life and that of my children to make the payemnts on loans taken out without my permission" lenders will close their checkbooks, and foreign investors, no longer assured that the taxpayers will cover their losses, will start taking their money elsewhere (as Iran is already doing). Borrowing is NOT an option for the US Government. It MUST borrow to survive, and to prop up the dollar against a $2 billion a day trade deficit.
A general strike lasting more than a few weeks will bring the entire over-debted system crashing down.

The 21st century feels like a letdown. We were promised flying cars, space colonies and 15-hour workweeks. Robots were supposed to do our chores, except when they were organizing rebellions; children were supposed to learn about disease from history books; portable fusion reactors were supposed to be on sale at the Home Depot. Even dystopian visions of the future predicted leaps of technology and social organization that leave our era in the dust.
Demographically and economically, our era is unique in human history. Depending on how we manage the next few decades, we could usher in environmental sustainability--or collapse

So when do we get invaded to remove the rogue government that spies on its own people, gases its own people during anti War protests, stages "terrorist" attacks, holds crooked elections, attacks other nations without cause, and uses torture on innocent people looking for WMD that don't exist?
