Looking at the essence
Most clearly in the case of Iraq, but also manifest in places like Afghanistan and Haiti, the Bush crime family is not only criminal, but a murder cult. They kill just for the sake of killing. There is nothing to gain by destroying the Iraqi infrastructure, killing and maiming thousands of its people, and poisoning the atmosphere with depleted uranium other than the joy of killing and destroying. They care nothing about the lives of American soldiers either, as evidenced by the lack of proper equipment and training in Iraq, and the treatment of wounded soldiers after they are sent home. Then there is the "back door draft," the impressment of former military into returning to service (see Smirking Chimp).
What I find most curious about this glee for killing is the implicit belief that by killing people you have attained something. By taking the lives of vast numbers of people, somehow the members of the Bush crime family think that these souls have been rendered unto dust, that they will never be seen again, and that some sort of victory is attained.
On the contrary, serial murder is the clearest and most certain path to one's own suffering and lifetimes of ignominity. I find it ludicrous that "leftists" so bemoan the "success" of the Bush crime family. Repeatedly I find people depressed and enraged that the Bush gang has attained so much "power." To them I say wait a while. The cosmos, the Absolute, will not be mocked for long. Don't give the Bush crime family any power, including the power to make you depressed and enraged. They are not worth it, their "power" is fake, and they will soon be on their way to comeuppance.
