        War against Democrats</b></font><font face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" size="3"><br>a message from GWBush.com</font>
      <font face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" size="2"><p>Here's <i><b>GWBush.com's translation </b></i>of Bush's
        State of the Union address:<br>
      <h2>&quot;I will be a two-term
        president, even if I have to start World War III.&quot;</h2>
      <p>Axis of Evil? That's about as ridiculous as the time Reagan said socialist
        Nicaragua had the &quot;largest standing army in the world and is only
        a three-day march from the Texas border.&quot;</p>
      <p>Let's try to think rationally about this new Axis of Evil which so threatens
        the Fatherland:</p>
        <li><b>North Korea </b>is a starving mess that has already agreed--no,
          begged--to cease its missile program in exchange for aid, and has
          agreed to international inspection. (However, Bush jeopardized the agreement
          when he came into office by saying off-the-cuff that he didn't trust
          the North Koreans to uphold their end of the deal. Afterwards, his aides
          backtracked and Powell had to fly all the way over there to clear things
        <li><b>Iraq </b>is a defeated country which we <i>already occupy</i>.
          We have already decimated its military, we have already dismantled its
          weapons programs. We patrol its skies and regulate everything that goes
          in or out of the country.<br>
        <li><b>And then there's Iran!</b> It was most incredible to see Iran pop
          up in the Axis of Evil. Bush called it a country where <i>&quot;an unelected
          few repress the Iranian people's hope for freedom.&quot;</i> Actually,
          Iran has been having democratic elections for some time. Last year's
          election saw an <a href="http://abcnews.go.com/sections/world/DailyNews/iran_vote000219.html">83%
          voter turnout</a> (and yes, women have the right to vote). Candidates
          of varied political stripes participated. Last year the <a href="http://news.bbc.co.uk/hi/english/world/middle_east/newsid_654000/654135.stm">winning
          presidential candidate</a> was a reformer who was opposed by powerful
          Islamic fundamentalists. But he won with <a href="http://www.cnn.com/SPECIALS/2001/iran.election/">77%
          of the vote</a>. If you ask me, that's a lot more democratic than certain
          super powers I could mention. The most ironic thing about Bush's comments
          on Iran is that the results of Iran's first post-WWII democratic elections
          were overturned by a U.S.-backed coup that reinstalled the Shah and
          led directly to the Islamic revolution. (Don't believe me? <a href="http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0070535906/qid=1012441675/sr=1-2/ref=sr_1_8_2/102-3604937-0575338">Read
          the account </a>by the CIA official who pulled off the coup.)</li>
      <p>Anyway, Bush is really starting to scare me. I think <b>Bush&amp;Sons&amp;Company,
        Inc.,</b> are so afraid of a repeat of '92 that they're trying to make this
        war permanent. They've learned that people stop caring about war when
        the war's over, so this war must not end--at least not until after November
        2004. Personally, I don't think the American people will fall for it.</p>
      <p>What really saddens me though, is that the American people will have
        to fight this battle all on their own. Neither the media nor the Democrats
        will stand up to Bush's war hoax. I listened to the State of the Union
        address on <b>NPR</b>, that bastion of radicalism, and during the pre-game
        chatter they all kept saying &quot;our nation at war&quot; and &quot;our
        wartime president.&quot; It's the <i>emperor's new clothes</i> in reverse: Bush
        told everyone around him &quot;look at my new war&quot; and everyone actually
        saw a war.</p>
      <p><b>There is no war.</b> <b>There WAS no war. It was just a bombing mission.
        </b>We do that every couple of years somewhere in the world. Yugoslavia,
        Somalia, Iraq (many times over since the Gulf War), Sudan, Haiti, Panama...help
        me out here, folks, I know I'm forgetting a few. </p>
      <p>Is it different this time because so many people were killed on Sept.
        11? If so, then shouldn't we be fighting a war against the people who
        did it, and might do it again? What ever happened to &quot;Osama Dead
        or Alive?&quot; Whatever happened to Mullah Omar? The sad fact is that
        this has nothing to do with them. Nor does this have anything to do with
        Iran, Iraq or North Korea.</p>
<p>Bush's &quot;war&quot; has nothing to do with protecting Americans.
        It is only about one thing: defeating Democrats. Don't take my word for it: <a href="http://dailynews.yahoo.com/h/abc/20020118/pl/rove_020118_1.html">read what Karl Rove says about it.</a>
(And for what? Just so that corporations
        can keep getting tax refunds measured in billions, instead of just millions.)</p>

      <p><b>And what the hell is this Freedom Corps? </b>The first thing I want
        to know is what color shirts are they going to wear when they go patrolling
        for &quot;suspicious activity&quot;? Better not be brown. I mean this is really getting eerie! First, Pappy used Hitler's phrase
        &quot;New World Order&quot; and now Junior is raising a &quot;Frei
        Corps?&quot; When Hitler was just getting started, his <i>Freicorps</i> had the job of patrolling for suspicious activity too,
        and as you can imagine they found plenty.</p>
      <p>Well, you can either sit there watching America turn fascist, or you can do something! Come participate in the GWBush.com forums at:<br>
        <a href="http://gwbush.com/phorum/">http://gwbush.com/phorum/</a></p>
      <p>And slap some of GWBush.com's anti-Coup / anti-Corruption / pro-Democracy
        <b>stickers</b> up somewhere. If you're really bold, you could even put
        on a GWBush.com <b>T-shirt</b>, but watch out: you might get reported
        by the Freicorps!<br>
