Dude, you had to know you were going to open a can of inflamatory worms here with this post.
You see, you are automatically giving a lable of 'liberal' to anyone who thinks poorly of Bush 2. Well, let me fill you in on a little fact here.
I have been republican my entire life (until recently, I'm more 'American' now than party separated like they want us to be) and I too served in
the military. I was in when Bush 1 came to Schoefield. It was cool to see the president and I was told over and over and over that a republican
president is the best thing for the military. Why? Well, just look at the events in the past 8 years.
You see, Bosnia wasn't a full fledged committal by our military. Iraq and Afghanistan was exactly what the defense department needed. Their funds
have shot through the roof and many of their buddies at the defense contractors have become VERY rich. They're all in bed together and it saddens me
to think that people can't see it as plain as day.
Am I liberal? Hell no. Will I be voting for McCain? Hell NO! I'm not going to vote for a guy that will tell a stupid pink panther joke about Iran
and start saying 'Bomb bomb, ba bomb, ba bomb ba BOMB BA BOMB BA BOMMMMMMMMB..." Idiot. He is the perfect republican for the arms dealers. He
will definitely start a conflict with Iran simply because of his mindset.
As for Bush being and idiot or not...well, I won't call him an idiot outright. He has just committed idiotic acts and made idiotic statements.
Like when he was making his big speech after 911 in front of his fans. He spoke about seeing the first plane hit the towers. He then added in, as
all liars do, "of course there was a TV in the room outside of the class". And you still call him a trustworthy president? He has shown over and
over that he will lie to get what he wants.
You then say that they found WMDs in Iraq? Then why would he and his staff come out in interviews afterwards and state plainly that they were
mistaken. That the intel was wrong.
Sure, the easy excuse is that they were moved or buried or something. The problem I have is this. He has been proven to lie to the public before.
Why would I listen to him anymore? ESPECIALLY because he is president. They should NOT lie to their people. Especially when it leads to war. He
did along with all of his partners in crime. I say crime because that's exactly what it is. I'm sorry but he is a criminal that needs to be tried
in a full court of law. Period.
That's what I think of this president that you are trying to support. I also understand WHY you support him so blindly. You are taught to do so.
You may think that you have your own mind in this but I know how it is. It is pounded into you to be more republican than democrat while in the
service. It is pounded into that the president is the top of the chain of command. It is pounded into that it is patriotic to support your
government AND your president faithfully.
What you don't realize is that it is completely unpatriotic to do so 'blindly'. Especially when they have been proven to lie to your face over and
Alas, I must disagree with your assessment but also realise that you have a right to your beliefs BECAUSE of this country and what it was meant to
Peace to you my friend.
