Gore Vidal


He Thinks We Can't Beat a 3rd Rate Military!


"I don't see us winning the war. We have made enemies of one billion Muslims."

"As dumb as this administration is, they don't look ahead. They don't know where any countries are. They don't know how to make deals. They don't really know much about anything. There is no plan."

"Whatever Saddam has that might be atrocious - mustard gas, pox, viruses - we will ensure that he uses it."

"Now you have people [in Washington] who have no interest in the country at all. They're interested in their companies, their corporations grabbing Caspian oil."

"The media [have] never been more disgusting in my lifetime. Every lie out of Washington - they're out there doing war dances."


The Bush Administration: Rip-Off Artists


"These people are for the most part rip-off artists. Notice that theyíre all gas and oil men from Cheney, to the two Bushes; I think Rumsfeld also."

"And what this is really about is oil, and itís Central Asian oil, which is what weíve got our eye on. We do have practical motives every now and then. Itís not just for the sheer glory that we get into a war like the Afghanistan. Afghanistan is the entranceway to Central Asia and five republics that used to belong to the Soviet Union that are now the largest suppliers of gas, natural gas, and oil. He who gets his hands on that will really control the world for a while."


American Democracy Not Good Enough for Vidal


"How we dare even prate about democracy is beyond me. Our form of democracy is bribery, on the highest scale. It's far worse than anything that occurred in the Roman empire, until the praetorian guard started to sell the principate. We're not a democracy, and we have absolutely nothing to give the world in the way of political ideas or political arrangements. God knows, the mention of justice is like aclove of garlic to Count Dracula."

(original article on paid site of www.newstatesman.com.)

Prefers Bagdad to Washington
Asked about Washington's calls for a "regime change" in Baghdad, American novelist Gore Vidal told a television interviewer last week that he would rather replace "the junta in Washington."

In the Dark on Who Hit the Twin Towers


"We still don't know by whom we were struck that infamous Tuesday, or for what true purpose. But it is fairly plain to any civil libertarians that 9/11 put paid not only to much of our fragile Bill of Rights but also to our once-envied system of government which had taken a mortal blow the previous year when the Supreme Court did a little dance in 5/4 time and replaced a popularly elected President with the oil and gas Bush-Cheney junta."

"The behaviour of President Bush on 11 September certainly gives rise to not unnatural suspicions."
