I'm just at a loss today for the B.S. that is going on this week. I'd like to live in the special place that this administration calls home.<br><br>Here's another one.<br><br>You hear over and over about how the U.S. will not negotiate with terrorists. What do you call that? So, petty Iraqi criminals get carted off to Abu Ghraib for some good old fashioned torture, but a known aide to the man responsible for probably a large portion of the "insurgency" (Bush says = "terrorist") is released in a negotiation? Huh?<br><br>Where's the conservative spin on this, because I just don't think my eyes are adjusting. I'm still seeing four fingers.<br><br>
<blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>Today's terrorist is tomorrows ally and versy vicey?<p><hr></blockquote><p>Oceania has always been at war with Eurasia...we were never allies...that is bordering on thought-crime! <br><br><br>
So what? <br><br>2 years back, just about everyone seemed to be of the opinion that Saddam had WMD. Saddam had ejected the weapons inspectors, giving the impression to the rest of the world that he had something to hide. Maybe he believed that the work on WMDs was proceding as planned, because his lead scientists were lying to him because they didn't want to be hung, drawn and quartered. The intelligence at the time pointed to him having "something" and having tentative links to terrorists (including this alleged 25K to the families of suicide bombers). <br><br>So GWB made his case to the senate, Kerry supported him (talk radio plays parts of his speech fairly regularly), and the President was given the power to use force at his discretion. Then the weapons inspectors went in, Saddam gave the appearance of spinning his wheels, GWB got annoyed with his apparent attempts to subvert the weapons inspection teams - and we end up where we are today. <br><br>But these reports (that Saddam had no WMD) still come down to - So what? - should we appologise to Saddam, put him back in power, give him some new tanks and planes to play with, pay him some reparations for killing his two sons unjustifiably?<br><br><br>
