Battered Iraqis Find No Comfort in Bush Speech
http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&u=/nm/20040...

BAGHDAD (Reuters) - President Bush (news - web sites)'s speech outlining his plan to hand over power to Iraqis and ease their troubles won few people over in Baghdad, where weary residents are bitter after more than a year of chaos. snip



"He lies. We don't believe anything Bush says. The Americans have not done a thing for Iraqis. And now he promises to hand over power to Iraqis in a democracy after handpicking the people in the Governing Council," Haidar Majeed, a trader, said on Tuesday. snip


"The Americans can move a tank to Iraq in two days yet they can't even give us more than two hours of electricity a day for the air conditioning," said Fallah Hassan, sipping bitter Arabic coffee with fellow unemployed Iraqis.


"Saddam used to cut off the electricity to punish us and now we see the Americans living in his palace with no electricity problems while we suffer."

1. How many times did Bush say terrorist.
How many times did Bush say terrorist. I call it asymmetrical warfare. terrorism is a form of warfare not a person.

3. Terrorism is war for soldiers without money
at least, that's the new definition.
