84. The Terrorists Did This -- And Were Able to BECAUSE of Bush
Edited on Thu Jul-07-05 09:49 AM by GiovanniC
Bush's policies have allowed true terrorist organizations to thrive by focusing his attention and our resources on a country that posed no threat.

Bush's illegal war kills a four-year-old boy on the side of the road outside of Baghdad. Suddenly the boy's father, three older brothers, five uncles, and eight cousins have vowed revenge against the United States and 17 terrorists are born from the death of one small child. Terrorists are being created at an exponential rate where few would have likely existed in the absense of Bush's policies.

Bush's disregard for international law and the Geneva Conventions lead to the US torture of Muslims. The Middle East is outraged and Bush's policies are a catalyst for massive recruitment for terrorist groups.

Bush's lust for oil led him to have troops secure oil fields while leaving HUGE weapons caches basically unprotected. Massive amounts of explosives and ordinance were stolen from these weapons depots by terrorists while the bulk of our troops were off guarding that sweet, sweet precious crude.

Bush administration policies have been pro-terrorism policies either by design or by ignorance and stupidity. At this point, the ability of terrorist organizations to coordinate massive attacks such as the one seen in London this morning are the direct result of Bush's policies and a good deal of the blame belongs with him. It may not be his fault that the terrorists want to attack London, but it is certainly his fault that they are capable of it.
