Rolling over like good dogs - Barney, you're job is up for grabs!

I have written many times that bush/cheney will never leave Iraq without getting the Profit Sharing Agreements (PSAs) signed that will give American Big Oil 85%-87% of all profits from Iraqi oil fields. I have also pointed out, among others, that if the government of al-Maliki couldn't deliver the signed agreements by June 30th it was the intention of bush/cheney to once again depose one of our puppet leaders in the puppet government we helped get democratically elected.

It seems we only like democratically elected governments when they will roll over like good dogs and do anything we tell them, like England.

But what I did not expect is that a democratic Senatorial leader would act as bush's stalking horse by joining with a senior Republican Senator to once again conspire to provide bush all the cover he needs by making it a "bipartisan" call for bush to do exactly what he was going to do anyway.

The disgusting details are here at the WaPo:
Declaring the government of Iraq "non-functional," the influential chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee said yesterday that Iraq's parliament should oust Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki and his cabinet if they are unable to forge a political compromise with rival factions in a matter of days.

"I hope the parliament will vote the Maliki government out of office and will have the wisdom to replace it with a less sectarian and more unifying prime minister and government," Sen. Carl M. Levin (D-Mich.) said after a three-day trip to Iraq and Jordan.

Levin's statement, the most forceful call for leadership change in Iraq from a U.S. elected official, comes as about two dozen lawmakers are traveling to Iraq during Congress's August break to glean firsthand assessments before receiving a progress report next month from Gen. David H. Petraeus…[…]

Levin's comments to reporters followed the release of a joint statement with the second-ranking Republican on the Armed Services Committee, Sen. John W. Warner (Va.), which was pessimistic about Iraq's political future. The statement referred to a round of recent meetings between Maliki, who is backed by President Bush, and Iraqi political leaders as "the last chance for this government to solve the Iraqi political crisis."

Maliki, a Shiite, has been trying to hold a summit with rival Sunni political leaders and ethnic Kurdish officials to reach a compromise on several contentious issues, including a formula to distribute the country's oil revenue and a law aimed at allowing some former members of Saddam Hussein's Baath Party to hold government jobs.…

Should those talks fail in the next few days, Warner and Levin said, "the Iraqi Council of Representatives and the Iraqi people need to judge the Government of Iraq's record and determine what actions should be taken -- consistent with the Iraqi Constitution -- to form a true unity government to meet those responsibilities."
This is how democratic leaders roll over belly-to-the-sky to await approving scratches from bush/cheney.

Not only is the ouster of Maliki being called for in a "bipartisan" manner, the claim from bush/cheney is that, "…Maliki, who is backed by President Bush, and Iraqi political leaders as "the last chance for this government to solve the Iraqi political crisis…" allows bush/cheney to maintain the utterly false facade that they give a sh*t about anything else but all that oil, it continues the lie that Maliki is Iraq's best hope for peace, and falsely states that Maliki has the full support of bush.

bush/cheny can again portray themselves as the "good guys" who are only responding to a bipartisan call from the Senate to depose the government of Maliki, over the maladministrations objections, even though it was cheney who travelled the Middle East a short while back to plan the overthrow of Maliki with the Saudis, who are very unhappy with the treatment of Sunni Arabs in Iraq.

But n-o-o-o-o-o, Warner must do everything he can to protect his image and the image of the party, and fortunately he has a democratic crony willing to roll over and join him in that bipartisan call for unilateral action by bush/cheney, something bush intended to do without regard as to whether anyone but Laura and Barney supported his decision.

With the support of a democratic "leader" like Levin, bush can pretend to cave and give the democrats exactly what they are asking for, even though such changes will make it "necessary and mandatory" for US forces to remain until the "new" Iraqi leader can get control of the country [not very f'ing likely] and then get a new parliament in place to sign those PSAs to give us the oil for which bush/cheney took America to war.

All the official cover bush/cheney or any other ongoing criminal enterprise could ask for, for years to come, AND ALL BECAUSE OF A "BIPARTISAN CALL FOR MALIKI'S OUSTER." It took six years to get to this point, so if the Iraqi leadership is ousted it provides the perfect cover to continue warring with, and committing the genocide of, the Iraqi citizens for many more years to come.

Our democratic leaders are being led by the nose into another bush/cheney trap, ostensibly to help Iraq, but in reality buying bush all the time he needs to do anything he wants. The democrats cannot complain because they have been out maneuvered, out-smarted, and played for the willing fools they are or have become. It is those democrats that have given bush complete 100% cover by providing the excuse to stay there for years to come while Maliki is deposed and a new government s-l-o-o-o-w-l-y tries to put together a parliament that will give American Big Oil exactly what they want: all that oil, for which we will then be required to stay in Iraq for thirty years to protect. ["After all," said the president, "I am simply taking and following the advice of senior democrat leaders. It was them that called for Maliki's ouster. I liked the man, having gazed into his eyes and seeing that he had a good soul, but that's what the democrats and some of my own party advise. If it fails it will be the fault of those democrats not supporting their own leadership."

Nice job, Levin. You cannot possibly be so ignorant that you don't know we went to Iraq to steal their oil, that's our official energy policy as written by cheney and his secret energy committee, so I can only guess that, once again, the American people are being sold out despite America's dire need for change and the fact that democrats won so handily last November because the people wanted the abuses of the bush government stopped.

Turns out now that it was all just a game for the democrats, as they either lack the spine, the intelligence, or the will to confront the worst American president ever. Choosing this time to call for Maliki to be deposed just gives bush another blank check.

I have come to believe that everyone in the House and Senate knows we are in Iraq for the oil, bush and cheney both have said repeatedly that we cannot relinquish control of all that oil, and now, presto!, a brand new reason to continue this war forever, provided courtesy of the Democratic Party and just in time to provide a new rationale for staying in Iraq no matter what the president's/Patraeus' report in September says as to conditions there. Especially when a new Iraqi "leader" "must be given a chance to get control of government and sign over all that oil," as insisted upon by Senator Levin.

With willingly capitulating democrats like this, who needs friends? America, you've been suckered, again.

I just cannot believe that the democrats in congress are that stupid, so I can only conclude that they are willing accomplices to the theft of another country's assets through illegal wars of aggression, and that they will NEVER muster the courage to confront, much less stop, bush.
