Suspicious Timing...

The House of Representatives will next week debate the US role in Iraq. It has been known for a while that the House would hold this debate at some time this Summer, but the date was set relatively recently.

Obviously, I'm suspicious about the timing. Al-Zarqawi was betrayed and martyred just days before the debate was set to begin - awfully convenient, huh? Bush and Rove are clearly manipulating events to their political advantage.

I think we need to watch the events of the next few days very closely. And I'll make a bold prediction: Bush will end all violence in Iraq on Monday. I mean, we all know that this is about oil, and that Bush is pulling strings to boost his political ratings. Having pulled Zarqawi's body out of the freezer and arranged the new Iraqi government this week, he's clearly going to end all violence next week - just as a partisan thing to embarrass Democrats.

I'll give you a bonus, too: Iraq's oil production will conveniently return to pre-war levels on Monday as well, leading to a pump price of $1.09/gallon late next week - just in time for the heavy Summer driving season. Since that would be awfully convenient as well, Bush will make it happen.

Back to the top.

Could he make the Iranians give up their nukes while he's at it, too? That would be cool.
