Doorzichtige politiek

Jan-Peter mocht 40 minuten bij George komen. Alles gepaard gaande met een hoop publiciteit.

George Bush staat voor de verkiezingen die in november bepalen of hij nog een tweede termijn de machtigste man mag blijven.

Daarvoor wordt alles op zij gezet en er worden honderden miljoenen dollars tegenaan gesmeten!

Zo is het ook duidelijk dat het aantal Amerikanen dat de troepen uit Irak naar huis wil laten komen, sterk toeneemt. Ze krijgen er genoeg van dat er nu elke dag soldaten in een zak thuis gebracht worden. Zelfs al wordt dit in de media zoveel mogelijk stil gehouden.

Uit het verleden blijkt dat presidenten die troepen naar huis terughaalden, meestal de tweede termijn wonnen. Daarom wil Bush dat ook doen.

De trucs daarvoor zijn: Geef de officiele macht over aan de Verenigde Naties, en probeer zoveel mogelijk landen ook een paar soldaten te laten leveren. De VN kan toch niets zonder het machtige Amerika, en die paar soldaten van andere landen, betrekken die landen er wel bij. En het maakt de locale politici nog “belangrijk” ook.

Een belangrijke eerste stap is daarbij om Spanje zoveel VN-argumenten te geven, dat zij de troepen niet terugtrekken. Als dat lukt, is het een kleine kunst om de NL-politici over te halen.

Omdat Jan-Peter echter geen “officiële toezegging” mocht doen, heeft George het hem ook niet gevraagd. Dat zou Jan-Peter alleen maar voor de camera’s in verlegenheid brengen.

Daarom heeft George na de officiële 40 minuten aan DE Nederlanders gevraagd om toch aan de Irakese burgers te denken. Die willen, volgens George, dat de troepen blijven.

Jan-Peter heeft al gezegd dat we niet mogen wijken voor geweld!

    Hub schrijft dat George stelt dat DE Nederlanders willen dat de troepen blijven.

    Jullie ongelooflijke zeikerige drammer en idiote spammer wenst op te merken dat de BBC George tegenspreekt door te stellen dat er "significant public opposition" bestaat in Nederland tegen de bezetting

    ‘Side-by-side with Iraqi people’

    Mr Bush said the goal of the "cold-blooded killers" who carried out attacks like the Madrid bombings was "to try to get the world to cower… to try to shake our will".

    He added: "It is essential that the free world remain strong and resolute and determined."

    He was speaking after a meeting in Washington with Dutch Prime Minister Jan Peter Balkenende – whose country has itself deployed troops in Iraq, against significant public opposition.

    The Netherlands and Denmark have both said they will keep their troops in Iraq, despite the incoming Spanish prime minister’s announcement.

    Cheney says Kerry holds US allies in ‘contempt’

    Wed Mar 17 2004 15:39:34 ET

    If John Kerry had been in charge during last year’s Iraq war and the 1991 Gulf War, Saddam Hussein would still be in control of Iraq and Kuwait, Vice President Dick Cheney said on Wednesday.

    Kerry has accused President George W. Bush of isolating the United States in the world by failing to build international support for the invasion of Iraq one year ago.

    But Cheney said: "Of the many nations that have joined our coalition, allies and friends of the United States, Senator Kerry speaks with open contempt.

    "Great Britain, Australia, Italy, Spain, Poland, and more than 20 other nations have contributed and sacrificed for the freedom of the Iraqi people," Cheney said in a speech at the Ronald Reagan Library in Simi Valley, California.

    "Senator Kerry calls these countries, quote, ‘window-dressing’. They are in his words, a coalition of the coerced and the bribed.

    Cheney went on: "How would Senator Kerry describe Great Britain? Coerced, or bribed? Or Italy, which recently lost 19 citizens killed by terrorists in Najaf.

    "Was Italy’s contribution just window-dressing?"

    Cheney said that the Democratic contender "speaks as if only those who openly opposed America’s objectives have a chance of earning his respect."

    The vice president also highlighted Kerry’s voting record in the Senate on Iraq and other military issues.

    Cheney told how Kerry voted against the 1991 Gulf War, but supported strong international action against Saddam in 1997, called for regime change in Iraq in 1998 and then voted in favour of military action against Iraq in a Congress resolution in October 2002.

    Kerry has since said that the president decieved Congress into passing the vote. But Cheney said: "Had the decision belonged to Senator Kerry, Saddam hussein would still be in power today in Iraq.

    "In fact, Saddam Hussein would almost certainly still be in control of Kuwait."

    The vice president said: "The American people will have a clear choice in the election of 2004."

    Refering to the September 11, 2001 attacks and the ensuing war on terror, Cheney said that the Republican president "has built a national security record of his own."

    "He saw America through tragedy. He has kept the nation’s enemies in desperate flight. And under his leadership, our country has once again led the armies of liberation, freeing 50 million souls (in Afghanistan and Iraq) from tyranny and making our nation and the world more secure."

    KISSING IN THE MEN’S ROOM AT THE VIRGIN CLUBHOUSE

    Even though they allow for high-volume servicing and back-in-a-flash trips to the john, the point-and-shoot-a-stinky-deodorizer-cake oddity known as the men’s restroom urinal has been, for women, a constant enigma. But nothing will prepare you for the men’s room in the newly-designed Virgin Airways Clubhouse in New York’s John F. Kennedy airport, terminal 4: Urinals shaped like a woman’s mouth, dolled up with red lipstick, wide open and ready for business.

    THE MEANING OF MADRID

    THE ROAD TO WORLD WAR IV

    By: Justin Raimondo

    UITGEPLUKT

    The neocons wanted a new world war – and now they have it. That is the meaning of the Madrid attacks, in which 201 people were killed and over a thousand wounded, for which Al Qaeda has taken responsibility.

    +

    In mythologizing 9/11 – and, now, 3/11 – Cohen and his co-thinkers, including Norman Podhoretz and former CIA chieftain James Woolsey, have separated the act from its perpetrators. It doesn’t matter that the millions of Muslims the world over who resent the United States for its intervention in the Middle East and its unconditional support to the Likud government in Tel Aviv had nothing to do with the destruction of the World Trade Center, the attack on the Pentagon, or the cowardly bombing of the trains in Spain. The whole lot of them are involved in the commission of a "hate crime," and therefore beyond the pale

    +

    Pointing out that not even the attack on a Spanish cultural center in Morocco gave the Azner government some reason to expect they were a target – they were too busy defending their decision to send Spanish troops to Iraq against the 91 percent of the voters who oppose it – Professor Cole poses a few pertinent questions:

    "How much did Spain spend to go after the culprits in Casablanca? How much did Bush dedicate to that effort? How much did they instead invest in military efforts in Iraq?

    "Instead of dealing with this growing and world-wide threat, the Bush administration cynically took advantage of the American public’s anger and fear after September 11 and channeled it against the regime of Saddam Hussein, which had had nothing to do with September 11 and which never could be involved in such a terrorist operation on American soil because its high officers knew exactly the retribution that would be visited on them. Only an asymmetrical organization could think of a September 11, because it has no exact return address. Even for a state to give aid to such an operation against a super power would be suicide – how could you be sure the superpower would not find out about the aid?".

    +

    In the wake of 3/11, the War Party is reprising, reinforcing, and further elaborating on their basic message: Striking their favorite Churchillean pose, the neocons denounce the European "culture of appeasement." Al Qaeda, they argue, having learned they can influence the outcome of elections by acts of well-timed terror, exposed the Spaniards – and the whole of Old Europe – as "cowards," which can only invite more terrorism. In the wake of the Spanish catastrophe, the punditi are already looking forward to fresh catastrophes, in Britain, France, Italy, and perhaps even an "October surprise" in the U.S.

    The advocates of "World War IV" have a built-in advantage of inestimable value. Every fresh disaster seems to confirm their dark prognosis. The more they fail, they more they win.

    This, I believe, explains a phenomenon first noted by the perspicacious Brendan O’Neill:

    "Has anybody else noticed an ELEMENT OF GLOATING at the horror in Madrid AMONG PRO-WAR COMMENTATORS? Amid the expressions of revulsion and sorrow at the killing of 200 Spaniards on Thursday, some seem almost excited by the prospect that Europe has been ‘shocked’ back to its senses and might now do its duty in the war against terror."

    Spanish Flu

    Paying the price for America’s mistake

    By Doug Bandow

    UITGEPLUKT

    "We did not want to go to war," demonstrators shouted at Mariano Rajoy, the ruling party’s candidate for Spanish prime minister as he voted. Nevertheless, the Popular Party took Spain into war. And the Spanish electorate punished it for doing so.

    Voters in Australia, Britain, Japan, Poland, South Korea, and elsewhere might make the same judgment. America’s friends should stand with Washington when the cause is just, the action is necessary, and the consequences are positive.

    But foreign peoples obviously do not feel blind loyalty to every administration that holds power in Washington. Especially when that administration sacrifices facts for ideology and presses their governments to act against their own wishes.

    UITREKSEL

    Poland on Thursday cleared the way for an early deal on a new European Union constitution, further raising hopes that the dispute can finally be settled.

    The country’s three top politicians said the time had come to reach a compromise on the new treaty and that Warsaw would no longer stand in the way of a deal. The new constitution would give the EU a new president and foreign minister, streamline decision making in a union of 25 members and attempt to make it more democratically accountable.

    Leszek Miller, the prime minister, said he did not want his country to be isolated after the new Socialist government in Spain signalled it would no longer fight alongside Poland in a battle over EU voting weights.

    "For an individual loneliness is a very unpleasant mental state," he told Brussels-based journalists. "For a country it would be very dangerous."

    Mr Miller said he would recommend to Bertie Ahern, the Irish holder of the rotating EU presidency, that talks on the constitution should be relaunched at next week’s summit in Brussels.

    Poland and Spain opposed a compromise deal over voting power at December’s Brussels summit, putting them at odds with France and Germany. Both countries wanted to cling to the preferential voting weights agreed at the Nice summit in 2000. Now Madrid and Warsaw say they are prepared to negotiate a deal based on a simpler "double majority" system

    Dan Plesch, a research fellow at the University of London, questioned the value of the summit. "The question for the public is why after every atrocity we see new regulations and procedures brought forward. If it’s important to introduce them now why not six months ago or two years ago," he told CNN.

    "The answer frankly is that there is so much bureaucratic, national interest in different organizations, it’s like pulling teeth to get these people to work together."

    Plesch said though that the atrocity would at least prompt European institutions to tackle the complacency about security.
