I wondered. I have listened to our compassionate President, as frequently as possible. Each time I hear the same rhetoric. He states, as he did so proudly on the night of his last inaugural speech, January 20, 2005, we need to aggressively spread democracy.
The President pledged that evening and continues to advocate the fight. He states that it is necessary. Mr. George W. Bush promotes his hawkish efforts to bring “freedom” and “justice” to all, whether they want it or not. Often the nation and the world watches as Emperor Bush stands at any given podium, always without his clothes, or Saddam’s weapons of mass destruction and declaratively, emphatically states; "We will persistently clarify the choice before every ruler and every nation . . .” Regime change is a favorite Bush Theme.

In other words, Mr. Bush, or America will mandate elections in other lands. He will do this in the name of “liberty.” The oppressed will vote. King George II will ensure that ballots are cast and appointments made. The military will facilitate the process. The Project for the New American Century [PNAC], comprised of the Bush cabinet, members of the Bush family, and closest friends, will “recommend” foreign policies. These authorities on “freedom and justice” will tell people in foreign nations whom to vote for.
• Please review definition of purpose that The Project for the New American Century offers.
The Project for the New American Century is a non-profit educational organization dedicated to a few fundamental propositions: that American leadership is good both for America and for the world; and that such leadership requires military strength, diplomatic energy and commitment to moral principle.
If citizens in these other countries choose a government that the Bush Monarchy and his Millionaires Boys and Girls Club do not “approve” of, then, our “fair” ruler will not recognize the results. “W” will deem the circumstances unsatisfactory and propose that we, as a democratic nation, not trade with this new and sovereign government. If angered further, Bush will consider aggressive actions. He will command an attack, just as we did in Iran.
Thus, I ask. Who has the insatiable appetite to dominate his or every other region? Condoleezza, please tell me. Who, dear Condoleezza is the threat?
