This is why I am such a big fan of Wes Clark. Not only was he one of the few Democrats to go and actually support Lamont in Connecticut last year, but he tells us what we need to know on the foreign policy front without acting like so many in this town. That would be a frightened little child, scared their shadow might take a bite out of their ass.

Well, what do we find out from General Clark today (or actually Friday, but who's counting)? Well, it turns out--shocker here--the Bush team, immediately after 9/11, had a plan to do 7 wars in 5 years.

Yup. The people who can't even handle two wars without making them both appear as if they were being run by Gomer Pyle wanted 5 more (or 6, I don't even think they were counting Afghanistan at that point--which is quite evident when one views the results). Keep that bunker stocked for the next two years folks...

Nothing like the smell of napalm all over the Middle East and Asia...

Clark is the man. He's the first one I've ever liked enough to work for. Love to see him as Sec of Def or State someday.

I can't get the story you linked to, keeps saying "Server Error". But I will assume Bush wanted to sweep the Middle East. I think Bush is still on crack, the guy is a menace.

I still think Clark will make a perfect Secretary of Defense. He's the man.

The interview is on the Democracy Now web site, the radio show that Amy Goodman hosts.

I read this yesterday, and wondered why it's not getting more coverage elsewhere. And I was surprised at how low on the list Iran was. I thought it would be 2nd.

Clark is terrific. He's got a level head, has reliable connections, and presents well.

He was a little weak in the debates when he ran, which seemed to contradict his straightforward approach elsewhere.

But overall, I'm with you, Cliffy. He's good.

Can we please put impeachment back on the table?

Better yet, can we follow Pelosi, leaving impeachment off the table, and move straight to the (far more appropriate) War Crimes Tribunal? Please? These maniacs had plans, mere days after 9/11 (in other words, drawn up BEFORE 9/11, I have no doubt), to preemptively attack seven sovereign nations. SEVEN! In FIVE YEARS!

How is this not a war crime?

How is this not a legitimate reason to ARREST the PotUS and the rest of his cronies, and have them brought to trial?

Why is it the MSM is burying this like they've buried everything else about this illegal military action? (Seriously, does the cabal...err, administration...have supreme black mail material on either the reporters in the MSM, the owners of the MSM outlets, or both? Thanks, perhaps, to illegal spying on citizens that we know has been occurring since BEFORE 9/11?).

Ludicrous. The whole situation is ludicrous.

cliff, check out this political parable I'm about to have published about undoing all of Bush's support. The other main thrust of it is that Clark is the inarguably best man to replace him. A WWII vet who read it said, "You made me feel guilty for not paying closer attention to Clark in 04!" and a soldier back from Iraq told me he wants to shake my hand. You can open the word doc from my geocities page at or ask me to email it to you via
