Bush’s language: lies and TIT for TAT

Bush’s language:
lies and TIT for TAT

Nipawin - Sunday - June 27, 2004 - by: Mario deSantis

"The reason I keep insisting that there was a relationship between Iraq and Saddam and al Qaeda [is] because there was a relationship between Iraq and al Qaeda"[1]

President George Bush

  Some years ago I stated that our language is our means to coordinate our civil behavior[2]; therefore, any language used to divide people is uncoordinated and uncivilized. And this is my point, the Bush administration has divided people at home and abroad and therefore this Bush administration is an uncivilized and lying administration[3].
  I am disgusted when I hear that American ‘abuses’ at Abu Ghraib prison are the results of the actions of few bad apples, and when I hear instead that the torture and killings of foreigners in Iraq are the results of the actions of Islamic barbarians[4].
  When are we going to learn that our collective behaviour must not follow the credo: TIT for TAT[5]? On a personal level, I even discount this credo by telling my sons to respond intelligently to the abuse of a TAT.
  Today’s Bush’s language is worse than being politically correct, it is an outright sequence of accumulated lies, which is undermining the balanced coordination of power between the President, Congress and the Justice Department[6].
  Bush has hijacked the power to declare war from Congress as he has declared a permanent war against terrorism, and Bush has hijacked the right to be a citizen as he has created the new term "unlawful enemy combatant" for the Justice Department. Former vice-president Al Gore explains that Bush’s best law is no law.
  I welcome Friday's release of Michael Moore’s documentary "Fahrenheit 9/11" in more than 900 theatres across the United States[7]. The end of Bush’s lies is finally getting closer.
