Bush and Cheney don’t mind leaving office at this time because they will continue to be in command of Blackwater and other mercenary contractors. They have bilked the U.S. Treasury for all they could get, and built themselves a well armed and trained private militia. They threw the spoils to their war-profiteering cronies who sucked the nation dry with their war games. They destabilized the Middle East so there will be lots more lucrative fun for them as they stuff their pockets with cash gained on the lives of the innocent. They foment war and then profit from it.
Don’t be surprised under Obama, if the American military finds themselves engaging against mercenary troops in battle. It could very well be the war profiteers who will attack the USA. Who knows; in retrospect, 9/11 could have been arranged by the war profiteers also? For eight years they sucked us dry from within, and will do whatever they can to force Obama to war in order to continue to suck us dry from abroad. It is all for profit.
We need to re-align our sights and realize that the war profiteers are the real enemy. And next to them are the corporations that profit from polluting the Earth, like petroleum and coal dealers. The pollution driving Global Climate Change is causing formerly productive land to go barren resulting in the bloodbath of Darfur. Whole island cultures need to be relocated due to rising seas. That's one way to end the 50 year socialist experiment in Cuba; drown them!
We had a war on the Indians. Then we had 2 wars against fascism. Then a war on poverty. Then a war on drugs. Then a war on terrorists. Now we can have a war on war profiteers! The war to end all wars!! Who should Obama assign to lead that war?
