Screw Venezuela for a day 

For the viewing pleasure of the poor souls who don't get to live in the great old U.S.A. I thought I would post a YouTube video of a commercial being broadcast all over TV in that great land these days:

Its been a long time since I've written anything on Iraq but I just couldn't let this classic piece of propoganda go by.

For a little 30 second ad it does cover all the bases. They got in the two most basic points that any pro-war propoganda has to cover - the "they attacked us" bullshit and the "if we leave now all the sacrifice will have been for nothing" bullshit. Oh, and they even got in a third point - "I fought over there so my son doesn't have to fight here".

BTW, non-U.S. readers might not know what this is all about but the Bush government has to certify whether or not it is making enough progress in Iraq to justify the continued presence of increased troop levels. Rumor has it Iraq isn't doing so great and even the report can't paper that over.

So what to do? Simple. Run lots of these commercials. Oh, and release the report on September 11th - you know, the day they attacked us.
