Consider this: On September 11, 2001, some 3,000 people - most of them American citizens - were murdered when a group of predominately Saudi Arabian terrorists flew airplanes into the Twin Towers.
Consider this: Saudi Arabia, the breeding ground for not only Osama bin Laden, largely believed the one responsible for this terrorist attack, but also for 15 of the 19 people involved, has been a close ally of the United States for many years in spite of the fact that it is an autocratic and despicable Islamic dictatorship under which the people enjoy few personal freedoms and brutal suppression reigns.
Consider this: In the months preceding the 9/11 attack, George W. Bush and his administration were given "intelligence" which advised them that such an attack was imminent. Such an attack would be "led" by Osama bin Laden. Such an attack would likely involve airplanes flying into buildings. All of these things were known to Bush, Rice, Cheney, Rumsfeld and others in the Bushit Administration in the summer of 2001! George W. didn't care. He ignored the intelligence. From Day One, the Bush Administration was focused on contriving reasons to attack Iraq.
Consider this: On the basis of a series of lies, all now well-documented, George W. Bush instigated a preemptive attack, in 2003, on a country that was NOT a threat to the United States in any way whatsoever.
Consider this: The attack became an invasion became an occupation. The Bushites, including John McCain, said the Americans would be welcomed by the Iraqis for destroying their country; they said it would be a short war; they said it could be done on the cheap, only $50-60 billion.
Consider this: The war has continued for five years, is costing $10 billion per month [in borrowed money], has cost nearly $800 billion since its inception, and no end is in sight. In fact, the war in Iraq has nearly bankrupted the United States.
Consider this: Everyone involved with the Iraq war was wrong and everything they said about the Iraqi invasion was wrong. Still, their lies continue today.
McCain and his sidechick, Palin, harp on the so-called "Surge" and how successful it was, but not once have either of them explained exactly what that means. They've never answered the question as to what made it "successful" -- and what "success" means in this situation.
The problem is that McCain and his sidechick, Palin, don't have a freaking clue about Iraq or the Surge or anything else in the Middle East. If the Surge was successful -- and that is still an open question -- it's success was due primarily to the fact that a large group of insurgents laid down their arms.
Consider this: George W. Bush, his administration, and his cronies in Congress, used the 9/11 attacks to create an attitude of fear in the American people ("The terrorists are coming, the terrorists are coming"). They lied to the American people about, not only the nature of the threat, but the source of the threat.
Because George and the neocons started the war to ensure access to the Iraqi oil fields, a purpose to which they could not admit, they spread lies about Saddam Hussein, about al Qaeda and about the terrorist "threat." Saddam, they said, had weapons of mass destruction, perhaps nuclear weapons, poised to attack the United States. Iraq, they said, was behind 9/11 (people still believe that one). Iraq was harboring terrorists, they said.
All of this was bullshit.
Consider this: The result of these lies and the incredible, unbelievable stupidity, as well as the unbridled greed of the Bushites and neocons has led to:
4,177 American dead in Iraq
30,795 Americans maimed in Iraq
96,289 Iraqis killed (according to Iraq Body Count)
1,273,378 Iraqis killed (according to justforeignpolicy.org)
1) Osama bin Laden, noted and notorious terrorist, is directly responsible for the deaths of 3,000 Americans which resulted from the attacks by his minions on the Twin Towers on September 11, 2001. Osama bin Laden should be captured and should stand trial for his evil ways and dastardly deeds.
2) George W. Bush and the leaders of his administration, notorious neocons and god-lovers, are directly responsible for the deaths of 4,177 Americans, the maiming of almost 31,000 Americans, the killing of some ONE MILLION Iraqis (many of them women and children), the destruction of the country of Iraq, and a raging and growing anti-American sentiment around the world.
3) George W. Bush lied and led the United States into an unnecessary, brutal and costly (in every way) war - these are indisputable facts with numerous historical documents of the highest caliber to back them up.
4) So who's the real "terrorist?"
a) Osama bin Laden
b) George W. Bush
c) All of the above
