Bush: U.S. deaths in Iraq 'laid foundations for peace'


www.cnn.com

President Bush expressed sympathy Monday for the families of the 4,000 Americans killed in the war in Iraq, promising to make sure their loved ones "were not lost in vain."

"One day, people will look back at this moment in history and say, 'Thank God there were courageous people willing to serve, because they laid the foundations for peace for generations to come,' " Bush told reporters after a meeting at the State Department.

I really don't know what to say anymore. This man is living on another planet, or at least another dimension in his own head.

How could the deaths of our soldiers (and thousands of Iraqis) lay the foundations of peace?

The violence in Iraq has been at a fairly steady civil war pace for some time now, and it doesn't look very bright.

Of course Dana Perino had to spin this story to make it seem like Bush actually cares:


During a briefing with reporters Monday, White House press secretary Dana Perino said the president "definitely feels the loss."

"He gets a report about every single soldier who passes away," she said. "And he always pauses a moment to think about them and to offer a prayer for their loved ones and their family and friends."


Oh really? Wouldn't 4000 reports make the man want to stop and think what we are doing is actually wrong?

How about the troops in Afghanistan? Does he receive a report about them?

I really don't understand the logic behind this war. We were originally there for the WMDs, then it was freeing the Iraqi people from Saddam's regime, then it was democracy, now its Al Qaeda who weren't there pre-invasion, but are now there en masse.

Let's be honest. It wasn't about any of the above. We know Saddam had WMDs because we sold them to him. He was just really good at hide and go seek. He must have learned that from Curious George Senior at Camp David back in the 80s when they were best friends.


"With 4,000 American lives lost and thousands injured, many of them permanently, Americans are asking how much longer must our troops continue to sacrifice for the sake of an Iraqi government that is unwilling or unable to secure its own future," said Pelosi, D-California.


That's the second statement I've agree with Pelosi recently. I usually disagree with her firmly, but she isn't so far off on this one.

I think i am going to have a nervous breakdown.





I just absolutely cannot beleive what i am seeing in front of me. This is just too much. Somebody has to get the net and catch that sick ## before its too late.

I give up.

Biggie, i think that Pelosi is talking out of both sides of her mouth. She's just saying what people want to hear and does not take any action whatsoever.

I don't know how this man can show any sympathy when he speaks like that. You'd think he'd at least feign compassion when talking about how many people have died for his illegal war.

At least use a eye dropper or something, make me believe you care! Hillary can somehow crocodile tear every once and a while, I'm sure you can figure something out.


"One day, people will look back at this moment in history and say, 'Thank God there were courageous people willing to serve, because they laid the foundations for peace for generations to come,' " Bush told reporters after a meeting at the State Department.


I don't really get that statement. What people exactly will look back on this moment and say "thank God?" Your ancestors? The people who profited off your war?

The oil tycoons? The mercenaries? Halliburton? Blackwater?

I see courageous people die for your war, Mr. Bush. But not because they're doing it for peace. They're following your orders.

You sent them over there, now its past time to bring them home.

Do it. And that's an order.

He really is completely unbelievable at this point. I am in shock.

I agree with you on Pelosi. She sniped at Tibet the other day because it makes her look like she cares.

The Democrats have been in power for over 2 years now, and still no progress on troop withdrawal.

Just another broken promise from the Demopublicans and Republicrats.

You guys should read up a bit more on the New World Order forum. It may make a little more sense (excluding the Alien part for now though).

Bush seems to be for pushing a Globalist agenda, like his father was/is. A New World Order that first consolidates continents into Unions and then onto potentially a world government where a select few rule. If true, they are part of both parties in the US and elsewhere.

From National ID cards to martial law, the US may dissappear under your own eyes sequentially. A step at a time.

Building up Saddam and Hitler may have happened by these Globalists, only to later take them out for profits. War garners alot of money.

I'd more like w to feel my boot in his nethers. He is so far removed from reality I just want to shriek at the top of my lungs every time I hear this froth dribble from his steely lips. 'Bring 'em on'. Well, they brought it commander, mission accomplished. Bloody hell.

My thoughts as well, doing lines while the less fortunate of his generation was dieing in Nam or on the run for uncle Sam's draft.

And I would even add running broke every business daddy set him in charge of, and he was really good at that.

Hey, there you have the reason they put him in charge...
to run down the good ol' US of A.

What a shame, but the elitest couldn't have asked for a better puppet. Good job old Dad Herb did bringing up that son.

If that is just the foundation, I don't want to imagine what the actual building of peace will cost in blood.

I guess, creatively, it's better than to call it a real loss, especially considering he is always right around the corner of a much-deserved butt-kicking by his own country, imo.

I'm sure he still lives every day wondering something like "I don't get it. Why do people hate me? I'm just doing my job." Or maybe it's the other way, where it's "the beatings will continue until morale improves". I have not cared about Bush enough to try to get into his head.

If the War on Running-out-of-Oil was justified then I wouldn't be so upset about what Bush said, I suppose...

As reasons already mentioned in this thread, this war is most definetly not justified, and these troops have died in vain. Well on a macro level. They are being exploited, I don't blame the soldiers.

Bush saying death is the foundation for peace is utterly grotesque, period.

I just can't see war, especially when it's our nation's army on their nations soil, and not the other way around, as the foundation for peace. Peace is the foundation for peace. Sometimes you have to get your hands dirty when you're gardening in Eden, but who would say the foundation for Eden is dirt? I am tired, sorry for that lame analogy

Well, when listening to these guys, you must have one thing in mind;

That certain words have the opposite meaning.

For example:

PEACE means WAR.

FREEDOM means SLAVERY.

IGNORANCE means STRENGTH.

And when you know this, their speaches make perfect sense.

Heck, yea!
He just cant shut his piehole and rants about stuff he's not even processing in his head. Somebody wrote the lies down for him to say

What an embarrasment. I would title this chapter in American history, "The Abortion That Lived".

Sorry for the rant, but i've had it with jr and his BS.

When exactly did you serve? When did you "ask" to fight and keep your country safe? I think perhaps you have been 'too" safe and need a reminder the world is a rough place.

4000 "AMERICANS" gave their lives for thier country to keep thier faimilies safe. Their blood paid for you "right" to whine and point fingers. Their blood took down a brutal dictator, killed thousands of insane muslim terrorist.

These are the facts.........."Fighter"?

helio you are certainly entitled to your beliefs and I respect that. I respect every soldier that has had to endure sandflies, bad water, bad food, bad politics. They are pawns in this sick trick of a republic. I guess in your guise we will just 'have to kill them all', because the sons of the dead will be the next jihadists, and so on, and so on. Guess that makes it all good. The next israel/palestinian nexus.

Perhaps the world is a rough place because of those kinds of reminders


Perhaps you support a rough world. Some support peace.
