Building 'An Impregnable Fortress Of Democracy', American-Style
Friday, 23 March 2007 20:04
by Winter Patriot

It's a national holiday! And to celebrate, the General President is vowing to build "an impregnable fortress of democracy". His friends in the White House must be pleased to see him doing it the American way.

On March 9, the General President dismissed the nation's Chief Justice, on charges of "misconduct" and "misuse of office."

Why? No particular reason has been given. But The General President needs a pliant Supreme Court since he is planning to stage-manage his reelection for a further five year-term and retain the top military rank indefinitely, both in flagrant violation of the country’s constitution.
 
Throw in a suddenly unstable government and what have you got? Better not to think about that, eh what?

Have no fear; the wheels are turning quickly. The General President has met with his legal experts and a new Chief Justice will be sworn in tomorrow. As for the main point at issue, whether he will be allowed to run in rig the upcoming election as a General as well as incumbent President, the General President says he'll settle this himself.

So the outcome is fairly well-known in advance of the event. There is another question, however. Will he get to run as General War President? I hate to go out on a frozen limb but in my view his chances look good, especially if the nasty little war gets any nastier.
