I agree completely with the many supporters of the impeachment effort to remove Bush and Cheney from office. I don't see that it will succeed, however. There is simply not enough public support, not enough support in Congress, and it is a very real concern to the Democrats that attempting impeachment while the situation in Iraq is so bad, with US service people dying regularly, history would not look at all approvingly at cutting off the head of the military establishment at this time. Bush, for all of his crimes, is commander in chief. The process to remove him would likely make the war situation worse, and will not be attempted. The Democrats disagree with the direction and execution of the war, but at heart they agree with its premise...a war on terrorism.
In the absense of an incredibly heinous crime by this administration, there is simply not the political will, nor the public outrage sufficient to remove these dangerous people from office.
That heinous crime is sitting right in front of us, but it is too terrible to look at. It is too fearful to think about. It is incomprehensible, although there are historical precedents for it. Operation Northwoods. Gulf of Tonkin (by Johnson, a Democrat), Remember the Maine, a pretext for the Spanish-American war. The coverup "investigations" are too convincing, so convincing the implausible becomes the undeniable. Any and all alternatives, no matter the logical and scientific analysis given them, deserve NO consideration, because it is too terrible to consider the government would kill its own citizens to further its poitical agenda. Any alternative is immediately dismissed as conspiracy. Under such conditions, the real conspiracy becomes the myth you HAVE to believe because the reality is too terrible to consider.
ÂÂIt is a physical impossibilty for a 47 story steel building, with full fireproofing on its support structure, to collapse straight down in 6.5 secs by fire. A physical impossiblity, unless the support structure was cut with explosives.
