Huh. Bush said that the Iraq war was to fight the terrorists THERE.
Didn't today's London bombers get the memo that they weren't supposd to use terror outside of Iraq?

Or maybe, maybe they aren't following Bush' logic which says that terrorists should concentrate on Iraqi civilians and American military in order to save him the bother of policing our shores and the political headache of explaining American deaths.

Maybe our president shouldn't have made investigation and prosecution of terror cells and terror funding sound less than manly. Those terrorists just don't follow Bush's rules too good.

1. The mail hasn't been running in Iraq, so they probably
missed that shipment of memos.

3. That's what a $billion a week destroying Iraq and its people will buy you:
--more terror on coalition soil.

Which countries still in the coalition are now having second thoughts?

16. Which coalition countries are having second thoughts?
All of them. After the countries that have left entirely (Poland) and those that have dialed down their involvment (UK) and those whose populaces are roaringly against it (Italy), there's only the US, where a mere 60% think the invasion was a mistake.

4. The memo that they got
said with the idiot emperor in charge they could do what they want. He has been a downright gift to their recruitment and fund raising. He's a failed President.

6. No, its just so they don't strike here, according to Bush and the GOP
I don't think conservatives really care if other nations get hit with terror attacks.

They will say they care, but I don't think they really do.

Otherwise, they would show it in their actions.

14. Impossible to know
All we know is that Bush can't prevent terror attacks, being an impotent fool. Quite the reverse, rather. His insane policies produe more and more resentment and terror. Whether Mr. Kerry's policies would have done the same is a moot point, considering our grave and badly degenerating global situation.

15. But it takes an idiot like Bush to fail so spectacularly. 1800 US dead.
A billion bucks a week, ten thousand American wounded, 1800 American dead, all to attack someone OTHER THAN the terrorists trying to kill us under the theory that we are "fighting them over there" and that they agree to kill only Iraqi civilians and American soldiers.

Maybe Kerry wouldn't have prevented the attack, but he would have taken the money and energy and put it in the right place. Bush is going to get more Americans killed in Iraq than Osama ever dreamed of.

But don't worry about the American and British dead. You aren't dead, personally, no skin off your nose. Yet.

11. In His Tiny Mind. . .
. . .terrorists don't know how to buy plane tickets.

They can learn how to steer a 200,000 pound plane at 300mph, but can't buy a plane ticket.

They can get access to weapons of mass destruction, including nukes, know how to transport them, arm them and set them up for maximum effect, but don't know how to buy a plane ticket.

He is such a simpleton.
