Flathead's Reality

Flathead attempts to rewrite history:

That also helps explain why Iraqis initially never took ownership of their governing institutions, like the Coalition Provisional Authority, or C.P.A. They never fought for it. It was handed to them.

---

Citing UN Security Council Resolution 1483 (2003), and the laws of war, the CPA vested itself with executive, legislative, and judicial authority over the Iraqi government from the period of the CPA's inception on April 21, 2003, until its dissolution on June 28, 2004.
...
The CPA was created and funded as a division of the United States Department of Defense, and as Administrator, Bremer reported directly to the Secretary of Defense.

Why do they even pay this guy?

Just imagine that Hitler had won WWII, but post-war German children were out of work.
Imagine in trying to keep the post-war bloat afloat, and administer colonial holdings all across the globe, with a crashing domestic economy as industrial was offshored to the outlands, Hitler's sons grew bureaucracy into a $3T a year welfare dole gyntopia,
protecting with that bloat the moneyed elites from the tapped-out peons and plebians.
Gradually through dint of poor medical & education, dumkopf plebians infiltrated the
bloated bureaucracy, as the elites moved higher up the social ladder, to DubaiLandt.
Welcome to 21st-century United States of Atrophia. We are everywhere, bruther!

Its kind of funny that he ends up justifying his whole crazy ass delusional and factless argument on some advise Ayman al-Zawahiri supposedly gave to Musab al-Zarqawi. Suggesting what exactly? That we should all take Zawahiri's wisdom more seriously? You never know where a Tom Freidman yarn will take you. This guy a joke, sort of like he's the Rube Goldberg of international analysis where no matter how unlikely, outrageous, off the wall, or unbelievable always eventually a little basket comes ratcheting down a pole and catches a mouse. I guess this all suppose to be entertaining, or something.

@ Bruther Amos #1:

Alternative histories involving Adolf Hitler require more regulation than you're presently expending. Rewriting history is best left to professionals.

'Why do they even pay this guy?' To dole out propaganda and create a smokescreen for the crimes.

Now there's one quote in that article I admire:

I’ve always believed that there is only one good thing about extremists: They don’t know when to stop.

Which to me makes it seem inevitable that Bush will try to attack Iran.
