Isn't it comforting to know that we are fighting them over there so we don't have to fight them over here?
Nice slogan, isn't it? Too bad fightng terrorists requires thinking instead of slogans. If we could just fight them with slogans and ad campaigns, they'd be dog food.
And when you ask the obvious question - "How is fighting in Iraq preventing terrorists from attacking over here?" you get no answer - the slogan just gets repeated. Such is the nature of advertising.
This is the consequence of starting the wrong war in the wrong country.
Al Qaeda - not Iraq - bombed London.
Al Qaeda - not Iraq - attacked New York City and Washington
Al Qaeda is the enemy.
Iraq was NOT the enemy.
And when we had the chance to break Al Qaeda's back in Afghanistan - even capturing Osama Bin Laden - we inexplicably pulled back, we changed the focus to Iraq and Saddam Hussein, we didn't finish the job, and we allowed Al Qaeda to restrengthen and regroup.
Then we opened up Iraq's borders, and we allowed Al Qaeda to flood into Iraq. The CIA says that it has now become their best training ground.
We had a chance to snuff them out, and instead we allowed them to spread.
We gave them a brand new territory in the Middle East.
They are stronger than when we started.
Because the Bushites didn't THINK THINGS THROUGH.
See, the terrorists PLAN. They THINK.
Bush REFUSES to. He just "goes with his gut." His instincts.
Well, in any battle between brains and instincts, the brains will win. Every time. That's why we're at the top of the food chain, and not some other animal. Because we use our brains, and the four-footed animals only have their instincts.
And unless Bush starts THINKING - like a human being - instead of just REACTING - like a lower animal - Al Qaeda will keep playing him for a fool.
The sad fact is that these terrorists know EXACTLY how we will react, because Bush's reactions are completely predictable.
They push his buttons, and he reacts exactly the way they expect him to react. Like an automaton.
That makes things REALLY easy for them.
And the Bushites won't change this, because doing so would be to admit error, and that hurts their fragile little egos. That's predictable, too.
Unless Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld start to plan strategy around what the facts actually ARE instead what they WANT the facts to be, we will lose this war.
So they had better wake the hell up, and start fighting with their heads instead of their stupid slogans.
