Ready for your closeup?
Is it only me or does it seem Americans are living in a Hollywood movie?
Start with 911.
Oooh! Everyone is scared.
But not to worry.
Enter the hero on a white horse, George W, to save us all.
George W attacks Afghanistan and then Iraq. He announces “mission accomplished” and the Taleban has been vanquished and the audience (Americans) relax.
Saddam Hussein is captured and the evil is under control.
More relaxation for the audience.
Ah, but the mission isn’t quite accomplished. The insurgents appear. Oh no, so does the Taleban.
No problem. John Wayne Bush is in control.
The audience goes for snacks.
But the insurgents seem to know how to blow up people and, more importantly, know how to blow fucking US helicopters out of the sky. Ouch!
What did I miss? Oh fucking hell! It might have been the best scene.
Then our forces capture number 2 or 3 or whatever of the al-Qaeda organization.
The audience issues a sigh of relief.
But we can’t trust what the “leader” says.
More tension for the audience.
This thing will never end while Bushco is in charge.
I know I’m missing many subtle sub-plots and nuances. I’m not a screen writer.
