The Watch

The Watch is concerned about the increasing pressure towards feudalism in the United States from corporations, social regressives, warmongers, and the media. We also are concerned with future history concerning our current times, as non-truths which are “widely reported” become the basis for completely false narratives.

Bush-Taking-Lessons-From-Musharraf Watch

This wasn't a real article on the web, but it could be, given the lack of appetite the Boosh administration has for reining-in their friend, dictator-turned-evil-dictator Musharraf (after all, what's better for the region -- democracy or brutal dictatorship?):

Boosh Vows to Learn Lesson From Musharraf

Taking a super-duper-harsh stance, Preident Bush's top national security aides said U.S. financial backing for Pakistan will likely go uninterrupted despite Musharraf's recent declaration of a state of "emergency".

Pakistan has received billions of dollars in aid and bribes since Musharraf threw his lackluster support behind the U.S.-led war on terror after the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks.

"We believe that the best path for Pakistan is to eventually return to a weakened but quasi-constitutional path and then to hold elections sometime in the distant future," said Rice, who then promised that Musharraf will still receive our money really no matter what he does.

Musharraf reiterated to foreign ambassadors Monday that he was committed to a long-term transition to democracy, as long as he gets to stay in power. "As long as I stay in power, we will eventually have a democracy!" he exclaimed. He then went on a long diatribe against "activist judges" who -- incredibly enough -- seek to enforce the country's Constitution. Under a state of emergency, parliamentary elections scheduled for January could be pushed back a year, a decade, or possibly more, according to the government.

Bush administration officials are reportedly looking on with keen interest, and are studying whether or not a state of emergency could be used in a similar fashion here in the US.

"I like it," stated one senior administrative source, who was not authorized to speak publicly, "It's simple and effective. By blaming terrorists, we can suspend the Constitution, all the while claiming that we're protecting the public. The public, being stupid, will believe pretty much whatever we tell them, particularly if it involves terrorists. We've been kicking this idea around for a couple of years now, and based on Musharraf's success, it looks like it could work as well or better in the US."

Unsuprisingly, the idea has already gained a number of converts among the populace. "I love President Bush" declared one ardent enthusiast, "Why not declare martial law here now, even without an emergency? Then we could have four more decades under our Beloved Leader". Joe Lieberman then went on to question how anyone who does not have anything to hide would be afraid of an all-powerful executive branch...

Yeah, you laugh in disbelief now, but just wait until an "emergency" happens in the US around the time of elections.
