A recent CBS poll shows that Bush's approval ratings have sunk to an all-time low 34% amid public doubts about the Iraq war. Hmm how to fix that...how to fix that...ahh I got an idea blow some crap up! What happens the very next day? The US launches the largest air assault since the invasion. Odd how those seem to follow each other.
It's not a matter of whether the war is not real, or if it is, Victory is not possible. The war is not meant to be won, it is meant to be continuous. Hierarchical society is only possible on the basis of poverty and ignorance. This new version is the past and no different past can ever have existed. In principle the war effort is always planned to keep society on the brink of starvation. The war is waged by the ruling group against its own subjects and its object is not the victory over either Eurasia or East Asia but to keep the very structure of society intact.
