Saddam's Fault Iraq Is A Mess?
Since many stupid people who do not care about the state of our country only want to pimp themselves in the comments section, all attempts at self pimping have been deleted and comments are now moderated. You would think America could not possibly be this stupid or inattentive. No wonder America and our freedom have died.
Did we miss something here?
Saddam is not the one responsible for the way Iraqis view Americans. Saddam did not have the kind of guerilla fighting as there is in Iraq at present. Our own PENTAGON issued a report putting the U.S. invasion of Iraq as being the reason that Iraq has become a terrorist hotspot...if you do not believe it, look it up for yourself or I can post a link to the pdf file. The list goes on for things that the US has done to provoke violence...
Yet George W. Bush says...
Iraq's instability "is the legacy of Saddam -- a tyrant who exacerbated ethnic divisions to keep himself in power."
REALLY... considering that the Bush administration has done that very thing here at home, I do not see him doing anything more than attempting to blame Saddam for the havok his administration has caused.
"I know that the work in Iraq is really difficult," Bush said, adding that a free Iraq in the Middle East is important to the security of America.
How will a free Iraq make the U.S. safer? They were not a threat before we invaded them, no matter what stupidity Bush and Co. tried to make us believe that they fabricated...WMD, mushroom clouds, etc.
If troops were withdrawn now, Iraq would turn into a safe haven for terrorists, who could arm themselves with weapons of mass destruction and could attack moderate governments in the Middle East
SURE...Israel is a MODERATE government...they got nukes of their own. Once again...WE made Iraq a hotbed for terrorists...our own government studies have indicated this as FACT.
We will now attempt to frighten America again with threats of imagined WMD like we did before so we can do what we want because Americans are incredibly stupid and gullible (all we have to do is find Jesus long enough to make more money and quickly lose him again when the camera is turned off.)
The quotes I have posted came from an article here.
Our founding fathers created our government to work for and take care of the people. It is beyond understanding why the Republican party has turned that concept completely around. It is now the people's job to take care of and provide for the politicians of the U.S. government.
To blame the previous dictator (which we installed) after we invade a soveriegn country and unseat him (he was going to sell Iraq's oil to everybody but the U.S.) is beyond asinine...and this is who the Republican party has turned on the citizens of America for? Did he ever graduate from Kindergarten?
Does not sound like it.
"Pre-emptive strike is not a monopoly of U.S."
Thank you, George.
North Korea Touts First-Strike Capability
By JAE-SOON CHANG, Associated Press Writer Tue Mar 21, 2:42 PM ET
SEOUL, South Korea - North Korea suggested Tuesday it had the ability to launch a pre-emptive attack on the United States, according to the North's official news agency. A Foreign Ministry spokesman said the North had built atomic weapons to counter the U.S. nuclear threat
"As we declared, our strong revolutionary might put in place all measures to counter possible U.S. pre-emptive strike," the spokesman said, according to the Korean Central News Agency. "Pre-emptive strike is not the monopoly of the United States."
The United States urged North Korea to return to international nuclear negotiations instead of making inflammatory statements. State Department spokesman Sean McCormack said the United States has no plans to invade or attack North Korea.
Last week, the communist country warned that it had the right to launch a pre-emptive strike, saying it would strengthen its war footing before joint South Korea-U.S. military exercises scheduled for this weekend.
The North's spokesman said it would be a "wise" step for the United States to cooperate on nuclear issues with North Korea in the same way it does with India.
Earlier this month, President Bush signed an accord in India that would open some of its atomic reactors to international inspections in exchange for U.S. nuclear know-how and atomic fuel.
The accord was reached even though New Delhi has not signed the international Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty. North Korea has withdrawn from the treaty and condemned the United States for giving India "preferential" treatment.
"If the U.S. is truly interested in finding a realistic way of resolving the Korean Peninsula nuclear issue, it would be wise for it to come out on the path of nuclear cooperation with us," the North Korean spokesman said.
The North's announcement that it has a nuclear arsenal risked escalating tensions in the prolonged standoff over its program and threatened the prospect of resuming six-nation talks on the dispute.
"We have built nuclear weapons for no other purpose than to counter U.S. nuclear threats," the Foreign Ministry spokesman said.
It is rare for North Korea to mention its nuclear capabilities in such an explicit manner. The communist state usually refers to its "nuclear deterrent force."
North Korea first declared last year that it has nuclear weapons, although the claim could not be confirmed independently. Experts believe the North has extracted enough plutonium from its main nuclear reactor for at least a half-dozen weapons.
When are the flag waving idots in America going to wake up? North Korea DOES have WMD that Iraq did not. The Bush administration KNEW IRAQ DID NOT. Now, since the Yahoos in the White House have insisted on using the threat of violence against all who do not fall in line, we now have other countries with CREDIBLE nuclear weapons announcing to the world that we are just as vulnerable to being bullied.
Let's hear it for self rightous war mongers using "God" as their excuse to invade, justify wars and killing based on fabricated stories, steal what we want, threaten and bully the world into submission.
Hey...it's the American way.
If anyone wants to comment...you are invited to do so. If you want to loose the same neocon, self rightous bullshit that put these criminals in charge of this coountry or you want to start spouting the same religious toxins that have created this fascist police state...SAVE IT.
Religion is man made, only faith is of any "God". "God' is not responsible for war mongering and prejudices that this administration or the right fringe has led this country to.
"God" was not of any political party...especially those who "find" Jesus when it will score them political points but CONVENIANTLY "lose" him when he is inconveniant.
Ladies and Gentlemen...I give you the Bush administration.
