ELMENDORF AIR FORCE BASE, Alaska - President Bush escalated the bitter debate over the Iraq war on Monday, hurling back at Democratic critics the worries they once expressed that Saddam Hussein was a grave threat to the world. "They spoke the truth then and they're speaking politics now," Bush charged. Bush went on the attack after Democrats accused the president of manipulating and withholding some pre-war intelligence and misleading Americans about the rationale for war.
I posted this on the Yahoo! Message board in the Discussion forum for the AP article. There were many Libs there complaining:
I Wish Saddam was Still in Power.
I wish he was still stealing millions from his people through the Oil-for-Food program.
I wish he was still firing on American & British jets enforcing the No-Fly Zone.
I wish he was still torturing those who spoke against him
I wish his thugs were raping Iraqi women and children
I wish there were news stories coming out every day, criticizing Bush for "ignoring the threat of Saddam in a post 9/11 world."
I wish the Iraq Kurds were treated as second-class citizens in their own country, instead of running TV commercials thanking us for their freedom.
I wish we we were living our lives wondering if Saddam was going to provide ANY kind of weapon to terrorists and use them against us.
I wish we would leave now, so Saddam could regain power and 2,000 American lives could be wasted after fighting a war those same Americans believed in.
I wish we would leave now, so our brave troops can be denied the victory they deserve; so those 2,000 will have died in vain. I will be able to use those numbers forever to fight my political battles, which are most important to me.
I wish the Middle East and the Islamic world would stay the same, without democracy, without rights for women, and continue to develop hatred for the West.
I wish all these things just because I despise George W. Bush, and those like him, more than I love the USA. I wish these things because I would rather use the war on Islamofacism for political gain than for the unification of my country, even after 3,000 innocent Americans died in one single day.
I wish all these things because my political cause, and my religion of Liberalism, is more important than the success of our president, our troops, and our country.
I wish all these things because I am a Liberal.
That is just super. Thanks for sharing that.
Took me a few minutes to write that one...wish I'd posted it earlier.
