    On July 4th, <a href=http://www.whitehouse.gov/news/releases/2005/07/20050704.html>Dubbyuh gave a speech</a> in Morgantown, WV. Of course, this speech was given before a hand-picked audience of approved ticket holders...No subversives or hecklers allowed.

    In his speech Dubbyuh reached back in history, a subject he knows little about, and brought forth the memory of the struggles of the Founding Fathers and their strugle for independence. He compared and contrasted this with the current struggle of the Iraqi people. And, I must confess the analogy is interesting.

    In 1776, a band of American insurgents rose up, and with the support of some foreign governments and a few foreign troops...Fought, bled and died, in order to finally expell and occupying army from American soil. Indeed, circumstances in Iraq are strikingly similar.

    In Iraq, an insurgency has arisen in order to expell occupying foreign troops from Iraqi soil. They also have the support of some foreign nations with about <a href=http://www.freep.com/news/nw/iraq5e_20050705.htm>5% of the manpower</a> for the insugency being compromised of foreign troops. But the occupying military is compromised, primarily of US troops.

    On the surface, Dubbyuh's analogy seems appropriate, but when looking at the context it is wholly inappropriate. In launching a war of aggression against Iraq based on questionable pretenses and intel fabricated from whole cloth, the Bush administration has betrayed the struggle of Americans in the Revolutionary war. They have betrayed the ideals of the Founding Fathers. They have betrayed the Constitution they swore to uphold and defend.

    I've been to Morgantown. It's the city where WVU is. My brother went there to play football for a few years. He received both a Sun Bowl Ring and a Fiesta Bowl ring.

    Very beautiful town, and all of it situated amidst very very steep hills, nestled as it is along a sizable river. There's a big old steel bridge that crosses that lake and serves as the main entrance to the town. It's pretty neat.

    Because of the hills the school buildings are quite spread out, both in horizontal and vertical distance, and so they have this pretty nice public tram to help people move about more quickly. Probably makes it alot easier to get back to your dorm after a night of drunken revelry. I'm sure more than a couple drunk students have gone rolling down the hills late at night.

    When had lunch at this place called Mario's. The pizza was not very good.

    Not too many people there one might describe as subversives though. Not in the hills of West Virginia. West Virginians are a hardy no bull-shit lot, even at a college town.

    Another Bush-betrayed-the-world post, eh? So did Clinton betray the Constitution by sending troops to occupy Bosnia and Kosovo?
