Are They Serious?

June 26th, 2003

The Media is either desperate or shameless, or both. The latest “breaking news” is that an Iraqi nuclear scientist buried in his backyard some parts and plans that would contribute to the building of a centrifuge that would contribute to the building of an atomic weapon. Twelve years ago. And they were never disturbed, until now (when the scientist wanted a deal to relocate).

And this is somehow supposed to make use believe that Iraq was, potentially, at some unknown time in the future, maybe digging up these parts and making a bomb. The media is spinning this as being the tip of the iceberg, and maybe we’ll start seeing a lot more after this.

What a crock.

Before the war, Bush and Cheney were making open statements saying that they believed Hussein had or was on the verge of producing atomic weapons. Nearly three months after the war in Iraq, we have found squat–so little that a measly 12-year-old buried cache of spare parts is earth-shaking news.

If anyone in the American public sees this as being somehow justification for the war or proof that Iraq was seriously developing WMD, they deserve little respect.

What next? Will they find a few hypodermic needles thrown out from a hospital 20 years ago and say that this could be the tip of the bioweapons iceberg? Stay tuned.

Or maybe switch to another channel and watch some Star Trek–much better grounding in reality in that show.

    I’m pretty sure the Bush administration would rather have Americans watching Star Trek than news. If people are forced to come to grips with the truth, Bush’s approval ratings will continue to slip.
