The Vendetta Era. Avedon Carol on the
net migration of military resources from the Northeast and Midwest to the South and Southwest:
Think about how little sense this makes in terms of national defense against potential foreign invaders.

But then, think about how much sense this would make if the principle focus of our military was not defense at all, but something else entirely.


...given that the power elite have clearly been working hard to destabilize the United States, one is forced to wonder whether a break-up is actually part of the plan. And that they are getting ready to arm the Confederacy against the North.
Yup. That's the plan. We are now five years into the Vendetta Era, designed and produced by Rove & Co.

Karl Rove, the political and therefore de facto policy head of the US government under the Bush administration, is leading a bunch of disgruntled and thin-skinned plantation owners in Christian vestments. Everything they've done, from deposing the evil dictators Saddam Hussein and Dan Rather to elevating the Swift Boat liars and orchestrating these military base closings, is based on some long-standing private vendetta or another and not the public interest.

Who would have thought that a wealthy unskilled cokehead cheerleader would be capable of so much damage in such a short amount of time?

Karl Rove, that's who.
