One-Track Mind

Says the Guardian: The Boy Emperor has a «one-track mind»:

‘George Bush is a man of conviction and clearly a hard man to change. When reality confronts his plans he does not alter them but instead alters his understanding of reality. … he stands with a tight band of followers, both deluded and determined, understanding each setback not as a sign to change course but as further proof that they must redouble their efforts to the original goal.
‘And so we watch the administration’s plans for a military attack against Iran unfold even as its official narrative for the run-up to the war in Iraq unravels and the wisdom of that war stands condemned by death and destruction. As though on split screens, we pass seamlessly from reports of how they lied to get us into the last war, to scenes of carnage as a result of the war, to shots of them lying us into the next one.’
‘… “We have to throw away the notion the US could not do it because it is too tied up in Iraq,” says Colonel Sam Gardiner, a former US air force officer who has carried out war games with Iran as the target. “It is an air operation.”’

So now that we’ve wrecked the Army, it’s time to wreck the Air Force. Guess he’ll want to blast away at Cuba so he can wreck the Navy next.

Less than two years. Less than two years. Will the long national nightmare ever end?
