Will the US get fooled again?


The WSWS points out the many lies and idiocies of Bush and Cheney's latest babblings, highlighting the increasingly desperate tone.
Desperate regimes take desperate measures. Facing mass opposition and besieged on all sides by revelations of criminal activities ranging from torture to secret prisons to illegal spying, the Bush administration is responding with a drumbeat of warnings that September 11 could happen again. The question is whether this administration is preparing to either engineer or allow such an attack as a means of suppressing domestic dissent and furthering its policies of militarism abroad and reaction at home.
The so-called "war on terror" is in fact a war of terror. Torture, secret prisons and wiretaps are just as much weapons of terror as are suicide bombers. Of course, F-16's and Abrams tanks and cruise missiles are weapons of terror as well.
