War on Terrorism

I am sick to death of having to read, hear or view anything about George W. Bush's war on terrorism. This goes especially for what is going on in Iraq. Political supporters of Bush say the war must be winnable in order for the terrorists not to win. I say BONK! Iraq had nothing, absolutely nothing, to with terrorism or any attacks against the USA. How about Afghanistan? The only thing I can gather is that Osama bin Laden was hiding there so the USA decided to try and kill two birds with one stone, Osama and the Taliban, oh, and let's not forget al-Qaida.

How long will this rage go on? How long will the USA allow this madman to continue his rage? Congress, with Democrats in control, fear that if they cut off the cash cow for this stupid war that they will be labeled as abandoning the troops abroad. They may pass a bill that sets a deadline to bring all troops home by 2008. Bush will probably veto it or if the usual trend continues he will just ignore it because he feels he is above the law of the land and the rest of world in the name of America's freedom. And people wonder why the rest of the world think so badly about the USA. Duh! I borrow a phrase from Forrest Gump, "stupid is as stupid does".

How many more servicemen must die or become injured before this idiot of a president realizes that he cannot win in Iraq. Global War on Terrorism. I don't hear anything about this war outside of Iraq and Afghanistan. In given time there will be no more able bodies to fight in this war. A draft will most certainly be needed because people are beginning to smarten up and realize that they would be idiots to sign up with the military. Nobody wants to enlist to die for nothing. To die in Iraq is to die for nothing. It is sad but true. The whole war was based on a few lies and the fear that the USA's president, especially the vice president Cheney, had impressed on the American people. What will happen when the military is spread so thin and abroad? Will America be that much safer? Think about it.

America is involved in a civil war in Iraq and its mere presence there adds fuel to the fire of hatred. The USA has done a bad and the government needs to admit this and step down and take the shame like a man and begin to work on renewing America's image both on the home front and abroad. There is nothing wrong with that. Many other nations have done so and they continue to thrive and be strong to this day. What is wrong is to continue the pace that has been going on the past four years. Bush has nothing to lose, America does.
