Have We Started the Third World War?
You know there is a chance this war will just spread clear across the Arab world.

Do you think Bush would get impeached if that happened. Probably not. It wasn't his fault, after all.

2. Yea, but the Cold War didn't kill people. (well, a few),
We just bad mouthed each other a lot. And Kruschef got up and pounded on the table with his shoe - remember that? "We will bury you!"

Oh the sweet memories from my childhood.

3. cold war
this is definitely another cold war,
the republicans heighten tension, fight a war overseas against a country that does not threaten them directly and can spend what it likes on arms

4. the way this is going we're well on our way
I can't believe people who voted for Bush don't see the signs...or they do and don't care, which is even worse!

5. That's what the neocons and theocrats are trying for, armageddon

and they have the media's cooperation, showing pictures of soldiers in mosques, crosses hanging from turrets and barrels, etc.
It really looks like they want to incite the entire Moslem world.

10. I think they may have succeeded.
But I have to say that Muslims seem to get riled up pretty easily. They seem a little eager to run into the street and fire AK-47s off in the air.

6. are you kidding? Bush will be dictator for life if that happens
Bush is quite probably the Anti-Christ for the following reasons:

If any other human being fucked up the way George Bush has, they would be in jail. Or worse.

George Bush, throughout his life, has been rewarded and/or promoted for literally destroying everything he's ever touched.

This strikes me as anti-human, anti-laws-of-the-world, anti-reality.

Now that he's in a position of the most powerful man on the planet earth.

That makes him something of a Christ. An anti-Christ.

Expect much death and destruction from his reign.

13. You know, I consider myself a rational, educated person
but there's a part of me that truly thinks he might just be the anti-Christ....

Good lord. Terrifying.

15. Yes, he's like the anti-matter human
because all the rules are reversed for him.

Destroy everything you touch? Rather than get punished, he gets promoted.

Act and say stupid things? Get more and more power.

He's like a positively charged electron or something. Anti-matter.

Nothing about what happens with this guy makes any rational sense.

He defies all the laws of the universe.

He's got some kind of weird fucking reverse karma.

7. Yes... and many Europeans are trying their best
to slow us down with economic warfare,


That is why China has accelerated the development of their blue navy with the abilty to project force across the Pacific

That is why Musharaff has said that a wall has fallen between Americans and the Muslim world (and it is safe to say across the world)

8. yes
We have seen the seeds planted that will flower into years of warfare.

Bush will not be impeached. Loads of ranting fundies will make a human shield for him while he and all the warprofiteering asswipes that he fronts for laugh.

17. Absolutely. The 2nd civil war indeed.
Or just the continuation, whereby the blues realize it has been ongoing... even with the best of intents to give the reds the benefit of the doubt. No more doubts for me.

12. I believe we have started a massive war that could lead to World War III
But would bush be impeach? Fat chance, he is after apointed by God remember it was the Religious Right that re-instated him. And do you think a repuke congress is going to prosecute him? Not a chance.

What could happen is the world would come knocking on our door and then we might just be fighting them here.

21. agreed
Bush and company are criminal war mongers, and whoever opposes them are our potential allies, for we have become resistance fighters.

18. This war will be the catalyst leading to the mother of all wars
The angst and violence will spread throughout the world, starting out relatively small then growing in size and number. Fractures will continue to develop between world allies. Retalitory boycotts and a currency war will soon follow causing economic collapse of the American middle class and then....the big bombs start to fall on all our heads. This is the legacy of GW Bush. Welcome.

20. Yes we have
well, not us, but, the people the talibornagains have forced onto us. If there is a way to control this brushfire to keep it from spreading I can't see it.
