Distraction

Without bin Laden, the Bush junta would still be trying to explain such tricky matters as how it came to be elected in the first place; Enron; its shameless favouring of the already-too-rich; its reckless disregard for the world’s poor, the ecology and a raft of unilaterally abrogated international treaties.
~ John le Carré (born: 1931-10-19 age: 83)
George W. Bush held a war in Afghanistan and planned one in Iraq to distract the population from looking too closely at his 9/11 shenanigans and his domestic record and to boost his popularity rankings. Much of the public is all gung ho, treating it like some theatrical spectacular. This reminds me of Mark Twain’s War Prayer.

Bush has a dismal domestic record, e.g. the highest deficits of any president in history coupled with tax cuts where 43% of the money goes to the wealthiest 1% of the people. War and panic temporarily stop people from looking at the domestic scene. Oddly Bush finds time, even on the eve of World War III, to pass legislation to allow banned pesticides to be used on golf courses. War is a smokescreen to distract the public while he sneaks by unpopular legislation. Bill Moyers compiled an astounding list of such legislation.

We can have a democratic society or we can have the concentration of wealth in the hands of the few. We cannot have both.
~ Louis Brandeis (born: 1856-11-13 died: 1941-10-05 at age: 84), Supreme Court Justice from 19161939
