Today's attacks in London PROVE BUSH RIGHT!
He's made the world SAFER! CONGRATS, BUSH!

And if you believe that, you ARE a stupid MFing rightwingnut.

China Image Scores Better Than U.S. (even with Britain)

Support for the U.S.-led war on terror has dipped in European countries like Britain, France, Germany, Canada and Spain, while it remains low in the Muslim countries surveyed like Pakistan, Turkey and Jordan.

'War on terror' losing support

Support for the US-led war on terrorism has been falling even among some of the United States' closest allies, an international poll found.

Support for the Iraq war is even lower.

In most of the countries surveyed, people rejected President George W. Bush's claim that removing Saddam Hussein from power has made the world safer.

2. Fighting them in London so we don't have to fight them here!
It's obvious. America is safer because the terrorists who attacked us on 9/11 are blowing themselves up in London. Our Gearless Leader's policies are working exactly as planned.

3. The righties love to say "better we fight it over there than here." That
isn't going to hold up anymore in my opinion. Of course they won't care if it is Great Britain as long as it isn't "us".

4. "Better t'faght 'em THERE than HERE! Haw Haw Haw."
But, because Tony Blair chose to ride the stinkshank into the Vietraq/SCWOT abyss with Lancelot Link, "THERE" is actually "HERE"!!

Lancelot and Blair - 2 Stupid Chimps.

Whoever lives for the sake of combatting an enemy has an interest in the enemy's staying alive.

9. Just how many years do we go on doing this?
Holding the course don't mean crap if the course is wrong and in this case, this course is doomed. How long will they waste our soldiers lives with this mess. 4 years of fighting and we are no better today than 4 years ago. Will it take the 12 years Rumsfield asks for? I doubt it. Just look at history. Those who repeat this history are doomed to fail...

11. better to fight them in new mexico...
i am sick sick sick of the "fight them there" rhetoric. we are fighting them everywhere because of *. and, as proven today in london, anyone that aligns themself with * will suffer from that association. i hate * so much. i am so mad today i don't think i can stay at work. how can i just sit behind my desk and work when this idiot is causing the death and injury of innocent people all around the world. i need to go to a kick boxing class or something.

12. I agree...nominated as well.
And here is my favorite...

Musharraf: World more dangerous because of Iraq War

Didn't we just sell this asshole a bunch of F-16 Fighter Jets?

If OBL is anywhere, is he not in the vicinity of this asswipes zip code?

If the world is more dangerous, it's not because of the IRAQ war jerkoff!

It's more dangerous, because of whack-job countries like his, who think it's OK to gang rape a young woman because of her brother's vicious crime against another woman from a different family.

That's why the world is more dangerous!

Because you allow insane shit like that to happen!

It's mornings like this that I swear my head is going to explode.

20. A modest correction.
VERY modest.

The brother of the young Pakistani woman who was gang raped didn't commit a vicious crime. All he did was sleep with "another woman from a different family". Now THERE'S a heinous, unforgivable offense for ya!

Other that that, I agree with every damn word you wrote.

And a tip of the hat (and a kick) to LynntheDem for another marvelous collection of links.

27. When I read about her story
it made me think to myself that the United States (especially the South) is only a generation removed from vigilante lynchings of blacks who dared to so much as whistle in the presence of a white woman (Emmet Till). Heck, we still have some Americans today like Trent Lott who still pine for those "good ol' days". Honor killings are awful and should be punished and condemned, but let's not get too high and mighty.

13. Bush's bicycle
We are now in cyclic terrorism when the involvement in conflict has produced what the supposed goal of the policy was meant to destroy. Now it is almost as simple as Hatfields vs. McCoys or the monkey with his hand clutching a prize is stuck in a jar.

Only peace could have before and can now stop the mutual feeding frenzy of violence. No one has to die to learn the lesson. All deaths are in vain and the who got who last will certainly not stop anything.

Not surprising that Bush took our aim away from Bin Laden. The aim should ALWAYS be on the very very few who manipulate and plan violence for their own gains against the majority will of humankind. Instead the drama of ordinary people underneath the untouchable mythic leaders consumes our passion and attention.

Sadly it is only about bringing a few to justice like Milosevic or Bush or Bin Laden, each according to their crimes. You can die in a defective roller coaster, from pollution in a plant that "saves jobs" or you can attend to the dangers of this life. One of the big dangers is losing control of world destiny to greedy maniacs. Real democracy and truth is the cure. Justice is the shovel to put it in the ground.

Little people dying is always a breather, a distraction of our attention from the first root cause of immediate violence. Each little person is worth more than an infinite number of our mythic, historic manipulating. leaders.

16. Awesome list of links - thanks
Now, please remember that the US is no longer keeping up with terrorist attacks because they are getting so bad. Instead of letting the average American know that, they'll just quit keeping track of the attacks.

Thanks, *. You have really united the world.

19. We need to refocus our terror strategy.
Clearly Bush's policy has failed.

Let's call on him to publicly retract his comment that catching Osama was "not a priority". Four years on the run is outrageous.

23. Well I'll sleep better at night now
From "US State Department Corrects Report to Show Rise in Terrorism"

The report showed both a drop in the number of attacks worldwide in 2003 and the virtual disappearance of attacks in which no one died.

Well I'm quite relieved that there was a "virtual disappearance of attacks in which no one died". Those are the ones I really worry about, as opposed to the ones where people get injured or killed. :sarcasm:

26. Here's my take on this
Since BUSH Didn't catch Bin Laden then that means that the terror attacks in London ARE BUSH'S FAULT.

SO no only has he failed in Afghanistan, Iraq, but worldwide as well.

I thought he had terrorists "containted"..

Ooops!
