We all remember how much President Bush was laughing on 9/12

Yesterday Morning:
Mr. Bush displays his inability to grasp the irony of his statements in addressing his War on Terror™, collateral damage, and dead Iraqi children, as indicated by remarks taken from “G-8 Meeting’s Focus Shifts to Terrorism”, the New York Times, July 7, 2005:

“The contrast couldn’t be clearer between the intentions and the hearts of those of us who care deeply about human rights and human liberty, and those who kill, those who have got such evil in their hearts that they will take the lives of innocent folks,” Mr. Bush said in remarks to reporters. “The war on terror goes on.”

This Morning (after less than 24 hours had passed):

“Aw, Ben, ‘Mind the Gap’, huh? That is funny…but don’t tell my boy Tony over there, OK? We all need to appear to be publicly grieving so as to justify our continued actions.”

wait, WE are responsible for a kid killed by a car bomb detonated by insurgents at a school?
what about the insurgents? they are entitled to kill in the name of militant islam and oppression?
is Saddam responsible for all the deaths tallied in the campaign to oust him?
he forced our hand in the same way we forced the insurgents?
what about a woman walkking down the street wearing a short skirt who gets raped – is she responsible for what happend to her because she created the circumstances just like we shouldn’t be in the middle eats(but when we aren’t its still our fault)
how about – lets stop killing each other, build the schools, build the power plants, and move towards a modern free society?
oh. thats right. the insurgency doesn;t want that – they want a Taliban like regime and they should get what they want according to you and your idiotic world view.

How did Saddam force our hand? By stopping his WMD programs in the 90s? By not being involved with Al Qaeda? By posing not the slightest whit of a threat to us? That clever devil!

your hatred blinds you
You’d would blame everyone else for these vile crimes except the murderers themselves
You need to re-evaluate your thinking

Why is Osama still free to plan terrorist attacks? Forget something, George?

actually, the evidence points to Bin Laden being on the run more than ever before.
those 3 SEALs weren’t killed by run of the mill Afghani warlords – the word is that they got very close to Bin Laden.,,2089-1688012,00.html
my brother in law is a Navy SEAL and trust me, they don;t take kindly to their brethren going down. lets hope they follow these new leads and snag that animal.
right? we’re rooting for our soldiers after all?
you can always find something else to whine about, but lets get on the same team here.

What? The Navy SEALS don’t like it when their fellows get killed? What a shock. Anyway, there’s a good chance they wouldn’t have died if, instead of invading Iraq, we had put more attention towards capturing bin Laden. Speaking of him, he is at least free enough to plan a major bombing. To me, that is a little too free.
Anyway, nice to see you again horns. I don’t get here as often as I might, what with my recent deployment. I hope all is well.
And for hazard5, what the f? Saddam forced our hand? How? Bin Laden sure as hell forced our hand, I’ll give you that, but then we haven’t captured him yet. We got Hussein instead. And as to the insurgents, I do think that America bears some responsibility for the insurgent attacks. Seems to me that if we had attacked with some sort of plan, the insurgents would have had a much harder time getting going. The insurgents are the proximate cause of many of the deathsin Iraq, but the mismanagement of Iraq after the initial invasion is the deeper cause.

the “insurgents” are Al Qaeda. they aren’t dislillusioned bakers and farmers who hatched a scheme to blow up their negihbors children when the US invaded. they aren’t everyday people who lost all sense of civility and picked up executions and hacking off heads.
its Al Qaeda.
“I do think that America bears some responsibility for the insurgent attacks”
…and i never thought i would read an active servicemember make EXCUSES forr the actiuons of Al Qaeda.
it is revolting

when your family is killed and you have no food, running water, job, or hope, and some local militant group offers you food and housing if you join them, then i bet you might consider it, especially if you are blinded by revenge.
it is rediculous to think the insurgance in iraq is all ‘al-queda’, especially with your claims that they arent ‘everyday people’.. al-queda was a small group in afghanistan, not a massive resistance in iraq. is their influence from al-queda? probably. is the entire iraqi resistance al-queda? hell no.

That pic of Bush laughing at the G8 summit…the summit at which he singlehandedly took down another world effort to stem global warming.
The cheery pic is chilling. He has no grasp of the seriousness of the issues grappled with at that summit. No grasp at all.
The man is apparently devoid of empathy.

I’m coneding a point here Horns. I have come around to agreeing with you that the insurgency is no longer about regular people, it is mainly foriegn fighters.
As far as justifying the insurgency, that’s is not what I’m doing at all. All I’m saying is that there is a clear cause/effect relation between America invading Iraq and the insurgency and importation of al Qaida. It is clear to most everyone that Iraq has become a sort of “fly-paper” for terrorists, although it’s obviously not working terribly well, since they managed to bomb London anyway. Iraqi people are suffering the indignaties they are suffering at the hands of the insurgents because of the American invasion. That doesn’t mean that I agree with the insurgents, it just means that I acknowledge the relation. Our debt is to the people of Iraq, not to the insurgents.
…and i never thought i would read an American citizen make EXCUSES for the actions of those who refuse to exercise their right to questiong the government. (That’s similar to your statment, if you couldn’t tell. The differnce is that I proofread a couple of things.)
Last, I was hoping for banter, not personal attacks. Oh well, I guess we don’t always get what we want. But as long as we’re making these attacks… I joined the army after 9/11 and am in Iraq right now, what is it, exactly, that you have done to support your right to disagree with me?
it is revolting

nameless, your firrst post was questioning whether there was a reason to go after Saddam – like it was done frivolously.
if a roque nation does not comply to resolution 1441 of the united nations,then what other discourse is there?
a sternly worded letter?
thats besides the fact that he was harboring these unsavory figures in his nation:
Abu Abbas
Abdul Rahman Yasin
Khala Khadar al-Salahat
Abu Musab al Zarqawi
sorry if i offended you – i do like running into you on this site. and watch out for yourself willya.

No offence taken. Anyway, lots of nations have violated UN resolutions, and we don’t go invading them, do we? As it turns out, we were doing at least a passing job of dis-arming Iraq before the war, so we didn’t really need to invade. War is a big decision and shouldn’t be taken lightly. IMHO, violating a UN resolution isn’t enough to justify a war unless the UN itself them sanctions it. If we are going to use the UN as an excuse, lets follow through with the thought.

right on. Shouldn’t we have investigated all of this now bogus info about Iraq having WMDs before we went to war?
I love the double standards too; read in the NY “Iraq-War-Good-Hussein-is-evil” Daily News a while back that Iraq needs a tough guy leading it after news reports that Allawi had summarily executed 6 persons.
And hornsofthechickenhawk, you didn’t answer NS’s question: what have you done beside putting a Support-The-Troops sticker on your car? Come on man, time to sign up and get over there to fight for freedom! Or are you coping hannity’s excuse: “I’m too fat”?
