War On Reality ; Part 1

While making an unannounced visit to Bagram Air Force base in Afghanistan, a bomb, large enough to kill 20 people, including 2 US Servicemen exploded. The visitor was Vice President Dick Cheney, he had the stupidity to say '' remain calm, all's well''.

This seems to be happening more and more often, a few weeks ago Iraq Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki was stood on the steps of a government building, surrounded on all sides by security staff, guys tall enough and big enough to block out the light, while he read a statement. An explosion made all the staff round him turn their heads in shock, the PM carried on, not flinching at all and sticking to the script.

When the President and Vice-President say things are fine in Iraq ; but the Iraqi PM has got so use to the lawlessness that he doesn't even flinch, you know that someone isn't living in the same reality as everyone else.

The Truthiness Blog Says ; Take the pieces of cheese out your ears and listen to the bombs going off.
