Cheat-Seeking Missles

Ooooooh! This protesting feels sooooo good!

Has a moment even passed since Vietnam? It doesn't seem like it because there's Jane Fonda out protesting a war ... but wait ... this is different! That's Eve Ensler! The author of The Vagina Monologues. At today's anti-war rally in DC!

Oh just gush! The celelbrity of it all! Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins and Jesse Jackson! It makes me want to break into verse!
My vagina singing all girl songs, all goat bell ringing songs, all wild autumn field songs, vagina songs, vagina home songs.

Not since the soldiers put a long thick rifle inside me. So cold, the steel rod cancelling my heart. Don’t know whether they’re going to fire it or shove it through my spinning brain. Six of them, monstrous doctors with black masks shoving bottles up me too. There were sticks and the end of a broom.

My vagina swimming river water, clean spilling water over sun-baked stones,
(My condolences to Ms. Ensler for allegedly having an abusive father. But she wasn't raped by soldiers ... that's' a bit of make-believe poetic justification for her anti-war sentiments.)

Lest you get all caught up in the excitement and celebrity of being among anti-war emotionalists, I offer you this photo. Behind every scene of supposedly impromtu outpouring of anti-war feelings today, behind every rhyming chant, there is an organization, working as hard as the Hezbollah PR guys worked in Lebanon last summer to lead America to defeat.

In this case, the organization is United for Peace, a group that includes communists, anti-Israel organizations, pro-Castro groups and other seriously misguided misfits.

The group was founded in Sept. 2002, eight months before the invasion of Iraq. Saddam Hussein was still in power, and that was A-OK with these supposed human rights activists. They cared not a whit if he stole Oil-for-Food funds from his people, causing them starvation and depravation, and spent it on palaces, payoffs to the families of suicide bombers, and salaries for weapons scientists. It didn't matter to them if he shot at UN-sanctioned enforcers of the no-fly zone. They didn't care if he didn't face justice for his mass murders of Kurds, Kuwaitis, Iranians and Iraqis, all for the purpose of self-aggrandization.

But Bush? They can't stomach Bush. And today, they are vomiting all over DC and our national airwaves their displeasure with a man who defends America, who supports freedom globally and who proudly shares traditional American values -- not the values of Jane Fonda or Eve Ensler.
