Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I think the real puppet master here is paranoia in the minds of this cabal, but that's looking at things on another level.

Cheney, IMO, represents a collective of military weapons and equipment manufacturers along with Big Oil concerns. They are all collectively the puppet masters. You get a bunch of yahoo idealogues in there to stupidly do the dirty work for you (Rove, Card, Wolfowitz, etc.) and plant a few of your own in there (Rice, Rumsfeld) and viola! you have a coordinated cabal of hard workers implementing a feudalistic agenda.

Turds like McClellan and Fleischer are just that. They are coals on the fire, not the real engines of the crimes these people have committed.

Share. Share resources, share delight, share burdens, share the healing. If we only could realize that sharing will bring us back from mass suicide.

Now, is this a conspiracy or a system? I mean, do the arms and oil executives meet in smok-filled rooms, or is it just an "emergent property" of the military-industrial complex that Eisenhower warned about in 1953?

A society committed to the notion that government is always bad will have bad government. And it doesn't have to be that way. — Paul Krugman
