Yes clinton did fail by allowing bin laden to go free. There are plenty of facts on this, even clintons own words, Allowing bin laden to go free was
the biggest mistake of my presidency.
- how about your heros Reagan and Ollie North who created and trained, originally supplied and set up bin Laden and his group in the ways of
terrorism? As for Clinton's comment? Ha! Interesting selectivity and interpretation.
Of course it's not like Clinton ever 'had' bin Laden....not like Bush in Afghanistan before he let the pressure off and the guy run to Pakistan,
Clarke ??? He was out to make a name for himself and line his pockets, That is common knowledge.
- he had a book out. So what. He stayed within the law over what he said in it.
Clark was a trusted senior figure in the intelligence community who actually knew what he was talking about because he was there under 4 (or was it
5?) Presidents - and the way your man Bush torched his reputation in an obvious and cheap move to cover his own lame sad ass will come back on him,
you mark my words.
Clinton was a liar, failure and coward.
- Clinton was a consumate politician, not just liked by his own people but adored by many - beyond the partisan zealot - in marked contrast to any
- and that's something you guys just can't forgive.
Hell if he was able to have stood in 2000 he'd have wiped the floor with Bush - and I suspect the same outcome if it were possible this year (anyone
done that poll yet?)
Unlike President Bush who believes in American values, freedom for the oppressed, and in his convictions. President Bush has stayed his coarse
through adversity, no one can deny that.
- er, yes we can.
Bush is a liar (he lied about Iraq....a tad more significant a lie that who was or was not blowing whom).
Bush is a failure (he has succeeded in isolating and destroying the vast well of sympathy America had following 9 - 11 which is in part responsible
for the disaster that is this so -called 'war on terrorism').
and Bush is a coward (his hiding behind the honourable men in uniform as a mere political convenience yet ignoring the damaged and dead is truely
breath-taking) and so obviously a mere right-wing front, a 'badge' for interests far greater than him.
A pathetic risible President the world over, no less.
The economy is great, interest rates are down,
- your economy is 'benefitting' from the increased short-term spending thanks to the wars - the only 'public spending you guys love, huh, but to
hell with using public money for anything productive at home, eh?.
This could not be further from sustained 'real' economic activity if you tried. These 'benefits' will quickly pass as per gulf war mk1 and you
will one day have to face the record current account trade and spending deficits. Wake up.
he has liberated 2 very oppressed countries and brought freedom.
- Look, I'm absolutely certain life was horrible uder Saddam and the Taliban but open your eyes or start getting your news from elsewhere. It is not
Those 2 countries are still horrible hell-holes
. Your notions of freedom are tragically laughable when applied to them.
A free world is a better world, the proof is in our great nation, AMERICA.
- what are you doing? Sloganising?! Is that the last refuge? Tell that to the 30 000+ who have died in Iraq since the war started.
History will prove all the Bush critics wrong just as it proved all the Reagan critics wrong!!!
- When all else fails some blind faith and the mantra of the believer, huh?
You do realise that outside of your 'special view' the world isn't especally fond of Ron either? Interesting though that you cite 'history' in
the manner of the fascist or communist dictator. Nice company you're keeping.
The world doesn't revolve around the USA, no matter who her President is, and many of the beneficial events that have happened had nothing to do with
the USA or only partly involved the USA.
