THE CYNICAL LIARS by glogauer THE CYNICAL LIARS by glogauer
...

In God, we trust. Yeah!

But no more trust in politicians... Especially in Presidents of the United States...

First, Mr Bill Clinton lied in court about his relationship with miss Monica Lewinsky.

Now, Mr George W. Bush and his administration lied about the existence of weapons of massive destruction in Iraq and give it us as the pretext to attack Iraq.
Mr Paul Wolfowitz (Deputy Secretary of Defense), one of the nearest collaborators to the Bush's administration, admitted two weeks ago that the U.S. government KNEW BEFORE THE OPERATION OF IRAQI FREEDOM THAT THERE WERE NO WEAPONS OF MASSIVE DESTRUCTION IN IRAQ.

This is really more serious than the lies of Mr Clinton...

This is EXTREMELY SERIOUS.

Comments welcome.

3,740 american soldiers have been killed in action. I have met and spoke with soldiers coming back from the war. My father was deployed to the persain gulf three times. You can say what you want. Everyone can have an opinion. And yours offends me.
I am not trying to start a fight. I am just stating what I think.

Loving the cartoon style. The speech all seems abit forced though, the best political cartoons can do the explanation in the title. I do like the way Jesus looks like an arab though, considering it would be some sort of racist miracle if he actually looked how most white churches portray him!

On a mildly political note (cos Americans hate foreign insults about their culture) it sorta reminds me of that classic time ol' Dubya had a carefuly crafted speech made for him that had no religeous connotations in any way and then he went and ad-libbed the word "crusade" straight in there. He practically asks for all those jihads!

Excellent comic and very much to the point. The huge pile of knowing, deliberate lies on every possible subject accumulated by this administration is beyond detailing in a short comment (or even a long article). Their blatant hypocrisy is even worse. Watching them struggle around before they finally launched the war (in a desperate hurry before the U.N inspectors managed to PROVE there were no WMDs) would have been comical if it hadn't been so sickening, and their floundering with justifications ever since has been even more pathetic. Saddam didn't have the power to do a thing to the U.S. or much of anyone else (ridiculous to think he did, especially after all those years of bombardment), but the neocons in the Administration have been itching (for at least 10 years) for an excuse to get control of Iraq. The real reasons for the war still haven't been admitted and aren't likely to be.

And that thousands of people have been killed in the name of justice and humanity is the most outrageous cynicism of all.

Hmm... the CIA gave the go ahead to Bush to use the WMD statements in the first place. I don't like Bush, but you're poking at the wrong person (or in this case people)... the blame should mostly go to the high intelligence officials that gave those overblown reports to Bush.

That at least should have been represented in the statement as well.

Come on... bush is not the personification of evil, and us didn't enter the war to save the world.

Wow. You liberals really are paranoid. Bush isn't a bad guy for starting the war. I'll admit that he is when we DON'T find WMD, but until then, you whiny morons just want something to complain about. I haven't forgotten that you're the same people that wanted so much more time to find weapons before the war. He's only bad now because he's a Republicrat-- a registered Republican that won't stop doing democratic things.

Actually, Bill lied again then cause he launched 40 cruise missles into Iraq claiming that they were targeted at WMD production sites. He was really big on Saddam's WMD's in '98 but it may have just been that he was trying to take attention off his whole Monica deal.

Oh and I guess we can't trust the UN anymore either because all 14 nations on the UN security council voted in favor of 18 seperate resoulutions concerning Iraq, many dealing with WMD's while also voting unanimously on res. 1441.

Oh and btw, you are forgetting a lot of added things. Like the fact we found mobile bio-labs and a buncha bio-suits. And the fact that you dont know the whole story....

And you are leaving out the fact that the war in Iraq was in no way solely based on WMD's. That was just one of the reasons Bush said the war was needed....and you are of course ruling out the possibility that Saddam wasnt a complete moron and moved them out of the country. Oh yeah, but that wouldnt make sense now would it? Instead of using bio/chem weaps on prepared troops, he could give them to terrorist groups to use on un prepared civilians...wait, no he wouldnt do that

Oh and I dont remember God ever being a reason for the war... I thought it was about freeing an enslaved people and releaving some of the danger to the rest of the world.

On a side note, I dont really see why you included Jesus...If there was ever the vision of love, kindness, peace and anti-war it would be him.... so I dont get the connection.

In the end I find your whole argument very stupid and moronic...as well as ill-prepared and unthought out. The lines are pretty good. You'd be a good political cartoon artist if you'd take your head outta your butt for once.

Oh and finally, dont get all on me for harrassing you like you usually do...or infringing on your freedom of speech rights. I am utilizing my freedom of speech to respond to your use of freedom of speech. Dont like all these political responses? Then dont keep posting political pictures and arguments. I dont see why you cant handle responses... anyways, lates yo!

i think bush would look nice a couple thousand feet up... on a cross of course... seeing as this was supposed to be a "holy war" (damned oxymoron)

i don't understand how people can handel this fact, i thought it was crazy we were going to war with out proof (i dont like war ever, but i meen, super crazy)... and maney people argued with me that the govement must have more proof than what they were giving people (i argued back, that they probaly didn't if they did they would want people to know, so they could drum up support for it) its just crazy... and well, all the ass who argued with me, still dont care! grr...

err sorry, i was just reminising... i will go to some more of that else where...

...A third of the American public believes U.S. forces found weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, according to a recent poll, and 22 percent said Iraq actually used chemical or biological weapons. But no such weapons have been found, nor is there evidence they were used recently in Iraq. Before the war, half of those polled in a survey said Iraqis were among the 19 hijackers on Sept. 11, 2001. But most of them were from Saudi Arabia. None were Iraqis.... Pollsters and political analysts see several reasons for the gap between fact and belief: the public's short attention span on foreign news, fragmentary or conflicting media reports that lacked depth or skepticism, and Bush administration efforts to sell a war by oversimplifying the threat.

You beat me to it! I don't believe he founded the war for religious reasons, but I will agree that he invokes religion an awful lot. One of his press response statements began with "We are all sinners..." Well, technically, but after saying that he continued in that vein of thought and began describing official policy.

I think the war is for all the wrong reasons. I don't think there was much public debate and consideration before the war happened: it mostly focused on "We will likely go to war." Civic choice? Civic debate? Our kids out there, our classmates?

That's what bugs me, too.

From "The Weekly Standard" ([link])..

Contradicting the Bush administration, Deputy Secretary of Defense Paul Wolfowitz told Vanity Fair that weapons of mass destruction had never been the most compelling justification for invading Iraq.

"For bureaucratic reasons we settled on one issue, weapons of mass destruction, because it was the one reason everyone could agree on." Everyone meaning, presumably, Powell and the Joint Chiefs of Staff. "Almost unnoticed but huge," he said, is another reason: removing Saddam will allow the U.S. to take its troops out of Saudi Arabia, where their presence has been one of al-Qaeda's biggest grievances.

For the last 12 years, all specific and sometimes heated policy disagreements notwithstanding, American presidents of both parties, joining a near-unanimous consensus of the so-called "world community," have agreed that the Baath party regime's persistent and never-fully-disclosed WMD program represented a grave threat to international security. Al Gore, for example, in his much-hyped antiwar speech last September, acknowledged that "Iraq's search for weapons of mass destruction has proven impossible to completely deter and we should assume that it will continue for as long as Saddam is in power. We know he has stored secret supplies of biological and chemical weapons throughout his country." The notion that the Bush administration's prewar reiteration of this view was a cynical ploy is crackpot.

For that matter, the notion that the Bush administration really, really, in its heart of hearts, had other, preferred reasons for taking out Saddam Hussein--particularly, that it did so to justify removing its troops from Saudi Arabia--and that the entire war was therefore a fraud . . . well, this idea, too, is crackpot.
