Mona Mazigh, Maher Arar, William Samson and US President George Bush

A World of Hypocrisy:
Bush's Lies and U.S. Crony Capitalism

As usual I feel puzzled and impotent to the widespread morale corruption. I felt very disappointed to hear that our own Canadian government was of no assistance to Canadian citizens Maher Arar and William Sampson while they were wrongly imprisoned and tortured respectively in Syria and Saudi Arabia.




Tonight I listened to know-it-all Lou Dobbs on CNN lamenting that corporate America is exporting good jobs abroad. Is it a surprise? What else can you expect from an economic culture which worships the ever increasing numbers of the Gross Domestic Product and Stock Markets at the expense of people's employment and economic sustainability? It is not by chance that Wal-Mart, with its lowest paying jobs, has become the world's biggest corporation.




In the last few days I have noticed to the point of it being something that seemed to be a part of every reference to the American President Bush as he appears to be incapable of even show the most remote awareness of the truth. Everyday I receive an e-mail from reporting the daily mislead of the Bush administration. Today I read the article "Bright Shining Lies, Blistering Truth" by USAF Lieutenant Colonel Karen Kwiatkowski and as a consequence I have come across a study by USAF Colonel Sam Gardiner (right) identifying 50 more false news stories of the Bush administration. Last week in a bold speech hailing the export of American democracy all over the world, president Bush stated

"The establishment of a free Iraq at the heart of the Middle East will be a watershed event in the global democratic revolution."

But journalist Robert Scheer points out that

"Democracy cannot exist without truth and genuine self-determination."

In the meantime more soldiers and civilians are dying everyday in Iraq in the name of Bush's democracy.




Our business gurus rally on the good news that the American economy has grown at the annual rate of 7.2% in the third quarter and cheerleader Canadian economist Sherry Cooper writes

"The U.S. slowdown is over, dead, gone, defunct, finished, and unlikely to return soon."

In the meantime the US trade deficit has widened in September to $41.3 billion and we have the mind-boggling news that developing poor countries made a net transfer of some $200 billion to richer countries in year 2002. We have crony capitalism in the U.S. and related induced political and economic corruption in the rest of the world.
