Topic: "Tumbler" (3)
The President of the United States, POTUS to some, was dubbed with the coded name "Trailblazer" by the Secret Service after the first election. In truth, George W. Bush has been a protectee of the Secret Service ever since the days of his father's presidency. At that time, his reputation as a drinker earned him the coded nickname of "Tumbler."
There are times when Frodo is absolutely convinced that the Incomparable Moron is still on the sauce. Witness, dear reader, the "Declaration of Principles" signed today during a video conference with Mr. Maliki (Frodo's coded nickname for him is "Shill"). In exchange for continuing protection of the Iraqi Government (coded nickname "Clowns"), the United States Government (coded nickname "Sheep") is granted "permanent bases." In addition, preference is given to US businesses (coded nickname "Halliburton") in its dealings with the Clowns. The Shill, of course, sees this as a way for him to keep his head as long as the Sheep accept the fact that some purpose is served for 100,000 troops (coded nickname "Policemen of the World") to remain in the desert stifling an on-going Civil War.
It should also be noted, dear reader, that the UN Mandate (coded nickname "Fraudulent Conveyance") which authorized the presence of the Policemen of the World in Iraq in the first place, is just about to expire. Halliburton needs to replace the Fraudulent Conveyance in order to proffer some level of legitimacy to the Vice President's Blind Trust (coded nickname "Vice President's Blind Trust)."
Frodo would love to ask George Will or Charles Krauthammer or Chris Wallace (coded nicknames "Three Blind Mice") to explain to him one more time why it is that this whole damn mess wasn't about oil from the very beginning? Somehow, he remembers the Three Blind Mice saying that this was not about the US establishing a permanent presence in a sovereign country. In fact, if Frodo looked hard and long enough, he could probably pull up a quote from Tumbler saying something like the Iraqi excursion is actually a "Crusade."
"The Surge" is working, isn't it? Now, let's see if we can come up with a definition for "Victory?" You'll have to pardon Frodo from that exercise however, he just feels like throwing up.
