    But, but…

    I guess we’re still waiting for Nightfall?

    Are you a native English speaker? In Chinese, there are no plurals, but in English, ‘Bush’ is singular, and you should have used the plural: ‘Bushes’. Plus, of course, Reagan and Clinton and Obama.

    Every candidate knows that, since the fall of the Soviet Union, politicians can’t win votes by killing Commies, so it has to be terrorists. Reagan killed Lebanese and Iranian terrorists, including hundreds of crafty terrorists who figured out how to fly a passenger plane backwards, so, when the US Navy shot the plane down, the liberals claimed it wasn’t even attacking the fleet. Bush, Sr promised Kuwait to Saddam and then, when Saddam tried to accept the proffered gift, used that as an excuse to go to a war where, unlike Panamá, the press wouldn’t depict his victory with a cartoon of the Great White Hunter with only a mouse head on his wall.

    Clinton bombed Muslims for no particular reason (and also Orthodox Christians for killing Muslims) to win votes and distract attention from blue dresses.

    (The less said about Bush, jr, the better.)

    And Obama has droned lots of Muslims and decapitated the Muslim state of Libya (with a loss of more US Ambassadors than Bush, jr).

    So please don’t put all the blame on Bush, jr. A plurality, maybe, but not all.

    It’s what you call a “day for night” scene.

    The world did not begin in the last 30 years. There has been continuous unease, friction, conflict, and at times all out war between the West and Islam for over a thousand years. There have been at least two close calls when Western Civilization was in danger of falling. Much of the ongoing strife and conflict in the world is within or on the edges of the Muslim world. Note that the non-Islamic related conflicts such as in Northern Ireland or Sri Lanka seem to eventually simmer down if not go away completely. The Muslim ones never do.

    All the presidents are under the control of the military, industrial, congressional complex. But Bush the lesser was a cheer leader for war and never stopped lying so he gets to be the fall guy.

    What is being said here, is like Blaming FDR for Japan’s sneak attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941.

    Maybe the reason your comments about Reagan were ignored is because they are absurd. As for Bush lying, the reason we invaded Afghanistan is that it was harboring terrorists (true). We went into Iraq because it was violating the 1991 Cease Fire and committing overt acts of war (again all true).

    Wow, it must be weird being blind, deaf, and living under a rock. Those reasons for invading Iraq weren’t mentioned AT ALL during the runup to the war, and they really aren’t a casus belli anyway.


    Congress voted against sending troops to Libya, but that didn’t stop Obama. And that wasn’t even a war that the right-wing was drumming up support for. Why do you think Congress would have been able to stop Bush, then?

    It’s too bad Bush, jr wasn’t president in ’41. Instead of foolishly attacking Japan, the wrong enemy, our BFF who gave us all the cherry trees along the tidal basin, he would have known to send the US military to punish the real perpetrators of December 7: Thailand!

    The Democrats who voted for war were accessories to a crime. While that’s certainly not a good thing to be, it’s in no way the same thing as Bush and Cheney’s having perpetrated the crime.

    Look again, he says “Bush” singular. Though two Bushes contributed to Iraq’s present hellish situation. Like Somalia, Syria and Libya. (Plus many others we can go into later.)

    Reagan and his CIA trained and funded Osama bin Laudin and others even against the wishes of Muslims who were not fanatics. The CIA has this strange idea that the more fanatical you are the better you will fight. In 1980 onwards.
