Wow, i cried myself...this was horrific. The perpetrator? One Osama BinLaden. Did we go after him? NO. We conveniently let him slip thru our fingers so as to set up the "backdrop" for the war on terror.
The rest is history. I cannot picture Bush or his administration living a peaceful coexistence in a peaceful world. Its all about wars, lies and deceit.
What luck the towers were brought down...(not for those unfortunates in the buildings) but to suit Bush's purpose. What a stroke of luck. Isnt that when all the citizens started waving the flag (me included) and started supporting this president?
But its not all Bush's fault. Let me tell you, that jaw of his moves left to right and up and down as if he's on the verge of a nervous breakdown...I dont think he's acting alone, for those of you who think i'm a Bush basher...no...he has help, and plenty of it...Could it be that crotchety old vice president getting to him?N perhaps...could it be all the problems with mother nature lately? could be..Could it be that his top men have been indicted? maybe...
Could it be the aliens putting pressure on him to destroy the world? Is it planet X and this chaos is all so we dont pay attention to it sliding down the heavens?
Call me crazy but somethings arent right.

second, if we left right now, the entire country of iraq would slide into uncontrollable civil war. as it is, shia and sunni gangs are attacking each other every day and committing horrible atrocities against not only each other, but innocent women and children. without us there to at least try and stop the carnage, it would get ten times worse. kind of reminds me of northern ireland....brits try to step in and stop the mess, and they get the overall blame from both sides (and i know im gonna take hits on that comment, because im just a dumb yank that doesnt know anything about the conflict except what i read in the western press...forget the fact that im third generation irish).

The goal to beating terrorist is not fighting it with more terror as the US is doing, it is to elimate poverty and give these people somehting to live for.
