Quote# 56391

[This is what neoconservatives actually believe...]

The wisest course would have been for President Bush to use his nuclear weapons to slaughter Iraqis
until they complied with his demands, or until they were all dead. Then there would be little risk or
expense and no American army would be left exposed. But if he did this, his cowardly electorate
would have instantly ended his term of office, if not his freedom or his life.

As there appears to be no sensible result of the invasion of Iraq that will be popular with his
countrymen other than retreat, President Bush is reviled; he has become another victim of Democracy.

If President Bush copied Julius Caesar by ordering his army to empty Iraq of Arabs and repopulate the
country with Americans, he would achieve immediate results: popularity with his military; enrichment
of America by converting an Arabian Iraq into an American Iraq (therefore turning it from a liability to
an asset); and boost American prestiege while terrifying American enemies.

He could then follow Caesar’s example and use his newfound popularity with the military to wield
military power to become the first permanent president of America, and end the civil chaos caused by
the continually squabbling Congress and the out-of-control Supreme Court.

President Bush can fail in his duty to himself, his country, and his God, by becoming “ex-president ”
Bush or he can become “ President-for-Life” Bush: the conqueror of Iraq, who brings sense to the
Congress and sanity to the Supreme Court. Then who would be able to stop Bush from emulating
Augustus Caesar and becoming ruler of the world? For only an America united under one ruler has the
power to save humanity from the threat of a new Dark Age wrought by terrorists armed with nuclear
weapons.

Why does the term "Dumb Ass" come to mind?

@Osiris
"Fundies" don't necessarily have to be religious fundies. Check the Q&A.

Damn, that's a Neocon fundie right there. Not the most common form of fundie, but scary as hell nonetheless.

Puh-leeze! Eight years was long enough. (Twelve if you count his dad...)

If I recall correctly, Augustus Caesar was the Roman Emperor when a particular mythological person was allegedly born. That mythological person, supposedly born in a manger of a virgin, tried to incite an uprising against the Roman authority and was ultimately executed for it. That person's words and deeds are still held in somewhat high esteem....

A "President-for-life" Bush would invite the same kinds of rabble-rousers, albeit in greater number......

(Besides, I thought the Supreme Court, for the most part, was on Bush's side....

Except for the fact that the whole world will turn hostile against America, and the fact that we launched a nuclear attack would render Iraq uninhabitable for a long time, and this could trigger a new World War, seems like a perfectly reasonable plan.

You guys should hear this same guy writing about invading Mexico to solve our immigrant "problem."

I'm sorry, what?

How come there are still people who think like this?

Oh, by the way. Augustus Caesar's descendant, Caligula, was an absolute basket case who believed he was a god, and it is rumored he screwed his sisters, one of whom seduced her Uncle (who was Caesar at the time) in order to become the wife of a Caesar. She was rumored to have poisoned him in order to gain Caesar-ship for her son (from a previous marriage)and attempted to seduce him when he became disobediant, and he eventually murdered HER.

Sure. That's just the kind of people that we want running America.

Poe. The ending is too obvious.

this guy has to be joking.

Rokard: Yeah, but there'll be people out there who nod and smile all the way through this, and think that this is really what they want.

So maybe Philip Atkinson is a Poe, but I'd be scared of the people who agree with what he wrote as a joke here.

Rokard, sadly, this isn't a Poe. This guy actually was employed by the DoD at some point. Some high-ranking Army officer actually said "he was the stupidest person I have ever had the misfortune of meeting".

@Rokard
Not a Poe, sadly.

Not a Poe? In the words of Shaggy from Scooby-Doo... "Like, ZOINKS!" It's a terrifying thought that people can still believe things like this.

George the Turd wouldn't last a week.

It's not his Army nor his Armed Forces. We the people own it, our children fill its ranks and our taxes pay for its upkeep.

So, chill, fuckface! You're way out of line.

President for Life. Hmm, aren't there others who tried this, like Yuan Shikai, Stalin, Mussolini, Mao, Castro, Kim Jong Ill, Slobodan Milosevic, and some German fellow who's name eludes me... hmm.

Um, you just pretty much exactly described a new Dark Age wrought by terrorists armed with nuclear weapons.

Yes, President-for-life Bush will save us from the Dark Ages by fighting against terrorists with nuclear weapons.

Or, as sane men prefer to see it, Bush would bring about the Dark Ages by becoming president-for-life by use of terrorism through nuclear weaponry.

See, he had all the right elements, only in the wrong order.

Those who do not learn from history....

Well, as we almost all know what happened to Julius Caesar when he became dictator for life (the ides of march anyone?), Philip Atkinson definitely did not.

And, emptying a 'country' of it's original inhabitants and repopulating it with Romans .... big fucking citation needed.
