"One of the best ways to win any game is to write the rules."

Michael S. Malone

 

    Whatever happened to just playing the games for the fun of it? But then of course possibly Michael Malone could've been psychic and had visions of the Bush administration when he wrote this. If I hadn't had so many in my life that use the same tactics he uses I wouldn't comment on this line. From the invasion of Iraq to our disastrous economy his behavior pattern is always the same. With Iraq accusations of WMD were all it took to rally the people to go to war. Just a verbal creating of a crisis swayed minds to winning of this administration's games. That wouldn't be to bad if that's all there was but it's non-stop without a single person seeing through the game playing.

    Probably the most recent chain of events before the economy made front page news was Russia going into Georgia. The US along with France, Germany and Israel had been training plus arming Georgians since 2003, the year Iraq was invaded. We're told first told that the training of their troops is for peace keeping missions in Iraq. Ya right and the pope is training to become an atheist. Even so what are France, Germany and Israel doing training Georgian troops for Iraq for when they don't have a damn thing to do with Iraq? Okay so that lie didn't work and there's a pipe line that by-passes Russia we've been putting money into along with these other countries. A pipeline, you've got to be kidding!!!!!!! What in the hell are we doing spending money on arms and troop training in Georgia which probably has the motive of the pipe line in the game winning plan all along.

    Get serious because at the same time we're told that we've got to become energy independent. The energy independent part is used as the motive of getting the off shore oil bill through like it's real urgent. It's creating a crisis to get it done fast. How's that for changing the rules to win, but it gets better as I'll just include a little more.

    Rice who I think has a serious problem with PMS said in one news atritcle, “We will resist any Russian attempt to consign 'sovereign' nations and free peoples to some archaic 'sphere of influence.'” Take note of the word 'sovereign' and think about the US invading Iraq. Of course the rules change when the US invades 'sovereign' countries, right. It's 'philosophy 101' taught by George W. I guess it's an uncredited class we're all learning real fast from.

    When it comes to 'sovereignty' here's from the news article, “Al-Maliki seems impatient with U.S. on troops.” "There can be no treaty or agreement except on the basis of Iraq's full 'sovereignty," al-Maliki told a gathering of tribal sheiks. He said such an agreement must be based on the principle that "no foreign soldier remains in Iraq after a specific deadline, not an open time frame." Include what's going on in Pakistan's news too. Headline reads, “Bush authorizes commando raids in Pakistan: report; Pakistan army chief Gen. Ashfaq Kayani said on Wednesday Pakistan would not allow foreign troops to conduct operations on its soil. "The 'sovereignty' and territorial integrity of the country will be defended at all cost and no external force is allowed to conduct operations ... inside Pakistan," a military statement quoted Kayani as saying.

    Morale of what I'm writing is there is so much obvious writing of the rules to win by government that we're all ending up losers from it. Isn't it time to hold those that represent us more responsible and accountable in paying attention to the rule writing to win game?
