Listen please
All you need to know is that IF Bush policies on his war on Terror were
working......
There would of been no plot.

Do you see what I mean? He is claiming alot of things - but the reality and truth is
that if he was winning the war on terror.....THERE WOULD OF BEEN NO PLOT.

He is still failing. The Iraq war did not make you any safer. Neither did invading Afghanistan. Neither did slowballing the UN towards an Israeli/Lebanon ceasefire.

Ok, that is off my chest now.

1. But
his awesome policy is making his chickenshit chickenhawk supporters grab their crotches, wave their flags and pick their noses. Nothing could be more important to the grand old party.

2. Where's Bin Laden????
Edited on Thu Aug-10-06 03:00 PM by sparosnare
If this was Al Qaeda as claimed, why is that man still free? Why hasn't Bush brought him to justice?

(You don't need to answer these questions - I'm gnashing my teeth as I write them)

5. Ummm, there would still be plots.
Disparity of income and power will always be with us. Even under a "pure" communism/socialism, some people become entrenched in positions of power, and thereby disparity develops ill-will among people who find no way to become powerful enough for some idea they have.

The question I have is whether our extreme disparities of power in the world and money in our economic classes will cost so much as to destroy US.

6. So you are saying -
That the root causes of terrorism is poverty.
By that standard - the war on terror is the same as the war on poverty.......
It is no wonder we will never win ......course actually winning and ending the fighting is not part of the plan. Sigh.

7. We can win the war on poverty, a sufficient win.
I think it comes from a well functioning democracy with good media and reliable elections. Rule with consent of the people.

Even that would not be perfect, but I deem it would be better.

The current plan is to pay supporters in the media through their war-time profits. Call me cynical, we were warned and it fits.
