Bush Again Spouting BULLSHIT About The War In Iraq

Bush claims that America was forced into the war because of the terrorist attacks of September 11.

In the recent radio address to the nation, Bush states that "We went to war because we were attacked, and we are at war today because there are still people out there who want to harm our country and hurt our citizens," referring to why we went into Iraq.

Even though none of those involved in 9-11 were from Iraq and it has been proven that Saddam Hussein had no ties to Al-Quida, Bush continues to maintain a connection of Iraq to the attacks of 9-11.

Bush also says, "Some may disagree with my decision to remove Saddam Hussein from power, but all of us can agree that the world's terrorists have now made Iraq a central front in the war on terror."

No, I don't agree that terrorists have made Iraq the central front. Bush made Iraq the central front by invading a sovereign middle-eastern nation based on a pack of lies, which he continues to tell.

Bush continues to re-use his favorite catch-phrases when he states, "Our troops are fighting these terrorists in Iraq so you will not have to face them here at home."

The people we are fighting in Iraq are not terrorists, they are insurgents. There's a big difference. An insurgency is defined as an uprising against an established authority. In the case of Iraq, it is the people who are fighting against the political and governmental authority the U.S. put in place.

They don't want a puppet regime with America pulling the strings. They don't want us occupying their land. They don't want us destroying their cities, blowing up their schools and hospitals, killing inocent Iraqis, dumping toxic depleted-uranium everywhere -which causes sickness and death not just in the people exposed but in future generations for thousands of years.

Terrorism knows no boundaries. It can not be contained by borders, oceans, or mountains. There is no way to stop a terrorist organization from launching an attack on U.S. soil.

Sure we may have taken the fight to them, forcing members of terrorist organizations to engage in fighting away from America, but how much longer will it be before we're flanked and IED's start going off at Wal-Mart?

The longer we continue this exercise in empire building, the more enemies we are going to make, and the sooner we'll see the fight brought back to us.
