I don't know what kind of delusional kool aid this man is drinking, but he needs to get me some!
Its been made quite obvious that McCain and Cheney's visit to Iraq has been over oil and "al qaeda." They both seem committed to the idea that there
are terrorists "over there" trying to kill us here.
How that makes sense I don't know.
I will repeat myself for clarity.
McCain and Cheney are in Iraq to secure oil deals
. They clearly do not care about the Iraqi people, as has been made evident to me time and
time again. They do not care about our troops and willingly sacrifice thousands of them for profit.
Cheney has a nice chunk of Halliburton stock he's been nursing for years now. When will the American people stand up to these cowards and tell them to
behave like men?
"We are succeeding, but we still have a long way to go," McCain said, pointing at what he described as al-Qaida's residual power in Iraq and at
Iran's growing influence, as the major remaining threats.
He promised that, if elected president, he would uphold a long-term military commitment in Iraq as long as al-Qaida in Iraq is not defeated.
Yeah we're succeeding in creating more hatred and violence in an already wartorn country. The only thing we do by staying there longer is allow
"terrorists" a larger recruiting base.
That's what people don't get. The longer we occupy a country, the more resentment boils over.
If we had been in and out it may have been an OK situation. However, after five years of OCCUPATION
, which people still don't understand,
pisses the local population off and rightly so.
If a foreign country invaded the US, you bet your ass I'd be taking pop shots at them, regardless if they claimed to be "bringing freedom and
democracy" to us.
That claim is bull# and those who don't see it are in serious denial of the facts.
And from the additional source I posted:
Cheney said earlier Tuesday that as long as freedom is suppressed in the Mideast, the region will remain a place of "stagnation, resentment and
violence ready for export."
Little do the brainwashed (by and large) American public know, the only suppressing going on is by foreign troops in Afghanistan and Iraq.
So, who may you ask is "oppressing"? Hm...I wonder?
If Saddam was "bad," what does that make us? Worse?
This man is highly delusional:
"You and I know what it means to be free," Cheney told the troops at an outdoor rally at Balad Air Base.
"We wouldn't give such freedoms away and neither would the people of Iraq or Afghanistan, but in both of those countries, they're facing attack from
violent extremists who want to end all democratic progress and pull them once again in the direction of tyranny.
"We're helping them fight back because it's the right thing to do and because it's important to our own long-term security," Cheney said. "As
President Bush has said, the war on terror is an ideological struggle and as long as this part of the world remains a place where freedom does not
flourish, it will remain a place of stagnation, resentment and violence ready for export."
First of all, neither Iraq, Afghanistan, or the US has "democracy."
You are trying to install a federal dictatorship with a side of Congress in a country that has been ruled by a brutal dictatorship for decades. They
don't know what the "freedom" you speak of is, and I don't think you know what the hell that means either Dick Insaney.
"We're helping them fight back because it's the right thing to do and because it's important to our own long-term security."
No. Its in your best interest as a corporate shareholder to protect your oil profits and that of your mercenary brethren.
You don't give a crap about anyone but yourself as I've said time and time again.
That whole "war on terror" line is getting mighty old as well.
Where are the "terrorists?" Do you even know what the definition of a terrorist is?
I consider you, and all else in the US government, who tell me who to fear and what I should be afraid of as the greatest terrorists of all.
You claimed 911 was a good excuse for invading a sovereign nation, and then you went ahead and invaded another one for the "war on terror."
Look at yourself Cheney. You're a terrorist. You create fear in the hearts of every Middle Easterner who knows that the US is in their backyard.
They don't want us there, but you simply do not care.
