Preemptive War - Up Close and Personal



We only bombed the Iraqis to "save" them. It was for their own good. We sent them sweet messages, too. Dig the "personalized" payload on the right. They should be grateful. When will they greet us with "sweets and flowers"? When will they say "Thank you" and kiss our feet?

********************MEMORIES**************************

It was in March of 2002 when the idea of a war against Iraq was still the SPECIAL SECRET ADGENDA of radical neoconservative chickenhawks (like Paul Wolfowitz, Douglas Feith, I. Scooter Libby, Jeb Bush, Donald Rumsfeld, William Kristol, Robert Kagan, Richard Perle, John Bolton, and Dick Cheney), that "War President" George W. Bush stuck his head in the door of a White House meeting room where Condi Rice was briefing three Senators and blurted out, "F**k Saddam. We're taking him out!"

March 19th, 2003 President George W. Bush began a 4-minute televised speech to the American people, "At this hour, American and coalition forces are in the early stages of military operations to disarm Iraq, to free its people and to defend the world from great danger...." Just moments before he faced the nation to announce that the War on Iraq had begun, the childish, over-excited President was caught on an internal monitor pumping his fist into the air while exclaiming, "FEELS GOOD!"

"The Iraqis are a sick people and we are the chemotherapy. I am starting to hate this country. Wait till i get hold of a friggin' Iraqi. No, I won't get hold of one. I'll just kill him." - Corporal Ryan Dupre, U.S. Marines, UK Times, March 30, 2003

"We either kill them or they give up."
- Michael Moseley, American commander of the air war over Iraq, April 5, 2003

"..the important message to the Iraqis and to everybody in that region is that we do not come as a new colonial power, we do not come as an army of occupation. We come as an army of liberation..." - Paul Wofowitz, April 6, 2003

"We do find that everywhere we go, when our terrific young men and women in uniform go into a town and create that presence, the security, and see that there isn't anarchy, there's not disorder and that people can safely go out into the street, people are comming in and volunteering."
- Secretary of Defense, Donald Rumsfeld, April 13, 2003

"Day by day, hour by hour, life in Iraq is getting better."
- War President, George W. Bush, Detroit, March 25, 2003

Does it FEEL GOOD now, George, huh? Answer the dead, does it?

In case you missed it, today El Shrubbo del Estupido said that Iraqi life is getting better all the time. Police walk the streets again! Markets are open!

Of course, 8 Policemen were killed the same day, and we all know that markets getting blown to smithereens is a daily occurrence, but in the Shrubble, none of this matters.

Preventative war. Don't forget and don't let them get away with that "Preemptive" bull. Preventative. We can (and might) now bomb anyone in case maybe they might be thinking bad thoughts about us.

Bad thoughts... hmmm... how about 300,000 of his own people slaughtered?

[http://www.cnn.com/2004/WORLD/meast/10/13/iraq.graves/]

Oh, and that count was in Oct of 2004... more have been found since.

Additionally, Hussein had proven ties to Hammas, the PLO, Ansar-al-Islam, the Al-Zacawi network and the MILF in the Philippines... whether you believe the evidence that also shows ties to Al Quaida or not, he was working with other terrorist orgs in the world.

So, yeah... Bush took the initiative and toppled a regime that a)kills it's own people and b)aids groups that want to kill us.

He promised the American people exactly that after 9/11... "we'll go after the terrorists and anybody who aids them."

I can see where you'd have a hard time believing he'd do what he promises... after 8 years of Clinton.

And Bush has kept us in the United Nations, left the borders unprotected, raised the national debt to 9 trillion dollars, allowed the patriot act to be used against strip clubs.

That is why I am a constitutionalist and not a republican.

I see your points, Jake... and you definately have something to complain about! I think the UN is a corrupt, burdensome body that has outlived it's usefulness... but until it's dissolved, the U.S. should stay involved if only for damage control!!
As for borders... I live in Texas, so you're preaching to the choir. The Border Patrol has received more funding and acknowledgements under Bush than they ever did under Clinton, but the task is still far from addressed. I hate that the immigration issue has become politicized, rather than remaining solely a security concern.
The growing debt doesn't concern me as much... when the U.S. gets off it's "war-footing" and has a period of economic stability, that debt will pay down. Just like any American household - an emergency has come up so we use the credit cards and charge accounts; after the crisis, we pay them off.
I don't see eye-to-eye with you on the Patriot Act... until we've minimized the danger from terrorists I think every citizen should be prepared to be inconvenienced for security sakes. When the threat is over, eliminate the Patriot Act. Simple.

What does war look like from the safety of a living room? When sterilized by a television, one fails to grasp its true nature. The fear, that you will never see your loved ones again. The smell of burning human flesh and hair. The screams of the dying that for a better aimed shot screams you. The heroism displayed by corpsman who ran out into crossfires to grab both dying Marines and wounded iraqis. The collection of medical supplies given freely by Marines to treat Iraqis wounded. Being told by Iraqis leaders that their town surrenders only to be ambushed minutes later. To have a friend whom you ate lunch with everyday, swapped stories with, stood guard duty with, killed in a fire fight and then having a british embedded reporter with an agenda record the words that come out of your mouth. It is easy to sit around in the luxury of America and point fingers. I make no apologies for what was said, and how I said it. People speak at times out of emotion. There was no grim satisfaction as Mark so eloquently quoted. It was rage and frustration. There is no grim satisfaction in having friends killed or having to kill. The fact is that when people are trying to kill you, have succeeded in killing your brothers, and show no regard for human life, it was easy to spout off some words that lacked taste. Apparently it is equally easy to spout off words in the living rooms of America, only when your words are in poor taste, what is your excuse?
You have absolutely no idea, and shame on you for blogging as if you do.
