Umm, What?

From Bush's speech denoucing us crazy, bleeding-heart hippies who are against the war in Iraq in response to critics that have said the Iraq war has strengthened terrorist resistance in the Middle-East:
No act of ours invited the rage of killers and no concession, bribe or act of appeasement would change or limit their plans for murder
The first part of that statement is most likely just plain wrong. I would bet most of the money I have1 that our invasion of Iraq pissed off a lot of people that were on the fence about us, and turned them into terrorists on their own. I don't really know how it couldn't have, see as how from their eyes we envaded their country and blew most of their shit up.

The second part of the statement is probably an overstatement, and in any event does not address another major criticism by us left-leaning peaceniks... there has been no indication when, if ever, we are going to get our troops out of that blood pit and money vacuum. When you say stuff like that, it just makes us think you don't even want to bring our troops home, because your buddies at Halliburton are making too much in government contracts.

Anyway, Cheers! Happy Friday!

1For anyone who wishes to take me up on this bet, know that I have no money... and what little I do have is already spoken for by a mortgage company, the federal government student loan program, and a private student loan company... so you would actually be betting for the right to pay my bills.

Crazy bleeding heart hippies? Didn't see that in the speech. Here's how the Holy Spirit speaks of attack Democrats: no praise is due those who abandon the right in favor of the expedient.

If it means anything... I heard, from someone who attended, that he was surprised at how few Tobyhanna Army Depot employees attended, and that there were a lot of empty seats at the gathering.
(I live about 20 miles from Tobyhanna, PA.)

Mr. Prophet... I'm not exactly sure who your quote favors, as Bush has abandoned what's right for power and money. But whatever, that's what religious conservatives do, isn't it? Use confusing and ambiguous biblical passages to try and support their side.

Ha! You've found a silver lining to being totally in debt -- you can bet all you've got w/out fear of losing b/c you have nothing! Yay for negative personal wealth!

You're very measured in your criticism here. I prefer to just reduce it to its simple core: Bush is a liar.

Being measured is key. Otherwise your comment section gets flamed by people who call you Barbara Streisand and Michael Moore. The L-word is a big step.

Then again, sometimes the doctrine of res ipsa applies...

So my comment has nothing to do with this post, I just noticed that you have "Eragon" as your next book to-be-read. I'll be curious what you think about it, because I read it and thought it was one of the most overrated books e'er written.

Considering how much we spent to take down al Qaeda, bribing each member individually would probably have been a better business decision.
