The military is "most capable..."

[T]he sad and unsettling statement by President Bush that the military is the "institution of our government most capable of massive logistical operations" only drove the point home. Katrina showed that Americans need a more inclusive idea of security from their representatives, instead of just the usual platitudes about "strong defense."

'scuse me...? it's well beyond "sad and unsettling..." for those who haven't figured it out yet, bush's strategy is to MAKE the military the "institution of our government 'most capable' of massive logistical operations" and to position that same military for use domestically... why...? think a minute... bush is the commander-in-chief of the military... when he issues orders, they are bound by oath to obey... let's pose a very plausible scenario, taken from today's headlines... hurricane rita slams into houston as a cat 5 storm, laying waste and straining all available resources past the breaking point... chaos reigns... bush declares martial law and orders in the military, extending what has already happened in new orleans and establishing yet another precedent in the bargain... absolute power...

keep in mind that, with bushco, you always have to look DEEP cuz there's always a larger plan afoot... when you have satan's doppleganger, karl rove, whispering in your ear, there is no incompetence, only a grand plan for seizing more power...
