Some news and a little nonsense

Ok, so President Bush is a liar. The military personnel currently fighting the war in Iraq are all liars. So perhaps the Iraqi Foreign Minister, Hoshiyar Zebari, is lying as well when he practically begs Japan to keep their mere 550 ground troops in Iraq, for fear of more violence.

He says,

"Now, any premature withdrawal will send the wrong message to the terrorists, to the opposition ... that this coalition is fracturing and running, that their policies and strategies of undermining this process is winning."

Hold it! Did he say, “TERRORISTS”???? Surely it’s a misprint! After all, everyone knows that Iraq has nothing to do with terrorists! Nothing at all to do with 9/11 and Saddam most definitely had nothing to do with al-Qaeda. But there it is, in black and white – the Iraqi Foreign Minister saying a premature withdrawal will send the wrong message to terrorists. Hmmm….it’s amazing it ever made it to the MSM.

And for some more crap…

I mistakenly stumbled onto a blog the other day that had this cartoon on it…

Since it had all the charm and wit of a PETA ad, I couldn’t help but click on the photo, which took me to a website called, “Project For The Old American Century” (here's the link - be prepared to throw up in your mouth). There, I found statements like,

If you are presently serving in the military or in the Delayed Enlistment Program and beginning to rethink your participation, here are resources to help you.”

The site then gives “resources” where they say conscientious objectors may get out of the military… “and with benefits as well…”

So let me just get this straight…we’re talking about people who object to being in the military and serving their country – but they should be given benefits when they “legally” desert? That’s like saying I should continue to get corporate benefits if I walk off my job. Hmmm, starting to sound a little bit like welfare.

The website also makes statements such as,

“Let's face it. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to put the evidence together. They Let it happen. 9-11 was not only preventable, but allowed to happen.”

Amazing - really. You know what they say...A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on.

And the best statement of all – explaining the birth of this website,

“The Project was founded in 2002 in response to a rigged election, reduced civil liberties, a hijacking of our domestic and foreign policies by the energy/defense industries, and a compliant corporate media that refused to make these problems prominent in our national consciousness.”

(Emphasis mine). And yes, you read that right - they think the media is on the side of conservatives! HA!

How incredibly entertaining! With garbage like this – who needs amateur night at the Appolo? The only thing worth reading on this site was a gripe by John Dear which read,

“02/17/05 "CommonDreams" - - Last September, I spoke to some 2,000 students during their annual lecture at a Baptist college in Pennsylvania. After a short prayer service for peace centered on the Beatitudes, I took the stage and got right to the point. “Now let me get this straight,” I said. “Jesus says, ‘Blessed are the peacemakers,’ which means he does not say, ‘Blessed are the warmakers,’ which means, the warmakers are not blessed, which means warmakers are cursed, which means, if you want to follow the nonviolent Jesus you have to work for peace, which means, we all have to resist this horrific, evil war on the people of Iraq.”

With that, the place exploded, and 500 students stormed out. The rest of them then started chanting, “Bush! Bush! Bush!”

So much for my speech. Not to mention the Beatitudes.”

HA! Go PA!

And one more piece of worthless opinion…

There is nothing in this world. Nothing. Not even the best shoe sale in the history of civilized shoe shopping, that is worth getting up in the middle of the night on the day after Thanksgiving to shop for. That’s all I’ve got to say about that.

    Though all members of al Qaeda are terrorists, not all terrorists are members of al Qaeda.

    Terrorists exist everywhere. In the US, in Ireland, in Israel and Palestine, each with their own agendas.

    So just to be clear, talking about terrorists and talking about al Qaeda, though similar, are not the same thing.

    Another point that I might make is that because there are certain terrorists in Iraq right now, does not mean that they were in Iraq before the war.

    It is not an unrealistic notion that the presence of American troops in the middle east galvanized terrorists to come to Iraq.

    Or perhaps another reason there are now terrorists in Iraq is that American forces have destroyed so many homes, schools, livelihoods and families in Iraq. I can just imagine what lengths I would go to in order to protect these goods here stateside.

    So, to imply that the United States is justified in its actions because of the current terrorist activity in Iraq might be missing the mark a bit.

    I am not denying that the United States may very well be justified in this war, but I just do not think that terrorist activity is a reasonable or logical justification.

    If you honestly think Saddam Hussein did not personally engage in the support, financing and training up of terrorists, you are sadly mistaken.

    You can justify (or not justify) the war any way you want. As for me - the safety of my family is justification enough. Whether you want to believe it or not, this war is sending a message to all terrorists (everywhere - even in the U.S.) and it's not to "go where the American's are so we can get our butts kicked". It's that we won't tolerate it anymore and we're not giving an inch.
