The New York Times wrote that a US intelligence report that the war in Iraq is only prompting more violence from Muslim extremists worldwide. A White House spokesman said in the defense of the Bush administration that the report was “not representative of the entire document”. This makes sense because that the Bush administration is once again defending themselves from accusations, and with people in Washington walking around with shirts that say “20 January 2009” (that’s the date Mr. Bush has to give up his power) I really don’t blame them. But when they call a war the front for the War on Terror fighting there should make the situation better in the long run, to put it bluntly. Maybe they think that with enough suicidal jihads that the extremists will just run out of people but it would only be at the cost of hundreds, maybe thousands of innocent lives. So I don’t see the point in choosing a front (because WE DID choose that front) that only inspires more extremists and makes the situation worse, but once again, it brings the question back to “Are we just protecting our oil interests?” The situation is becoming ridiculous, with the illegal wire-tapping, Illegal “secret” prisons overseas, and corrupt big-business/government relations, and a frankly fascist agenda (toward homosexuals), why is this administration still in office. The only politician with the balls to stand up to them was Rush Feingold and the rest of his party buried their heads in the dirt when he did, it was infuriating. I need some coffee.
Tell me your side.
