All of the reasons being offered for why the United States cannot withdraw troops from Iraq are false. The reality is, the troops are staying in Iraq for much different reasons than the ones being touted by political elites and a still subservient establishment press. They are staying to save face for a U.S. political elite that cares nothing for the lives of Iraqis or U.S. soldiers; to pursue the futile goal of turning Iraq into a reliable client state strategically located near the major energy resources and shipping routes of the Middle East, home to two-thirds of world oil reserves, and Western and Central Asia; to serve as a base for the projection of U.S. military power in the region, particularly in the growing conflict between the United States and Iran; and to maintain the legitimacy of U.S. imperialism, which needs the pretext of a global war on terror to justify further military intervention, expanded military budgets, concentration of executive power, and restrictions on civil liberties.
What does this have to do with Impeachment, and honest government?
To begin with let’s look at the oath of office sworn by every elected official from the President to your individual Congressman. From the FBI agent to the lowest military recruit. Is that Oath to the current head of the administration? Is it to their political party or corporate boss? No because these people are not the government of the United States of America. People have never been the Government, and despite the mistaken belief in loyalty to whoever currently holds a office, they are not and have never been the government. The oath of office is to the government, specifically the Constitution of the United States of America. Which created and limits the action and power of these people.
Before the Constitution we were made of thirteen independent nations. If the Constitution no longer serves, then we are fifty independent nations, joined to each other by a loose confederation like we were before the Constitution. People in Washington can not have it both ways. If the Constitution no longer applies, that is up to us, We the People to decide. Not some power hungry politician sitting in a office in the District of Criminals. For him or her to decide the Constitution no longer applies is not only criminal, it is the ultimate crime. Mr. Bush and Mr. Chaney as well as those who have enabled you and those who have slowly been attacking the constitution for years, I accuse you of Treason. For you are attacking and overthrowing my government.
