As I was watching the Presidential debate tonight, I was trying to decide which deadly sin was best embodied in our President, Good Ole Dubya. The answer is, of course, all of them, but as I was thinking, my mind (as it does at every oppurtunity) began wandering to FMA, and suddenly everything became clear...
Our world is in great danger. The fact that American troops are trapped in the death pit of the Iraq conflict is bad enough, but it is nothing compared to the administration's real plan. And that is... to create the Philosopher's stone.
Think about it. We all know the Cheney is in poor health - would it be too far from the truth to consider him already dead? Compare him to Dante, and we have a power-crazy immortal who is in desperate need of a new body. All he needs is a puppet, a homonculus to do his bidding. Someone soulless and immoral, incapable of emotions and only able to think about himself and his kind. And of course, the best choice is -- Dubya himself!
So we have Dubya the soulless Homonculus, Cheney the puppeteer, and an entire country full of brown-skinned foreigners with religious differences from the attacking country and Whammo! Instant philosopher's stone! Watch out world, Dick's gonna get a new skin suit.
