President Bush and his surrogates are launching a new campaign intended to rebuild support for the war in Iraq by accusing the opposition of aiming to appease terrorists and cut off funding for troops on the battlefield, charges that many Democrats say distort their stated positions.
What "new campaign"? Sound to me like the same crap they've been doing for five years. Claiming that people who want to actually FIGHT terrorists (as opposed to occupying Iraq) want to appease terrorists. And sadly, they are FAR more interested in attacking their fellow Americans than in attacking any terrorists.
You want to see appeasement? Here's a REAL example:
"I don't know where he is. I -- I'll repeat what I said. I truly am not that concerned about him." - Bush
You know who he's talking about, right? The leader of the terrorists. How's THAT for appeasing terrorists?
And in the same speech:
"I am deeply concerned about Iraq."
NOT concerned about the leader of the terrorists. DEEPLY concerned about Iraq, which wasn't a center of terrorism. And this was in March of 2002 - just SIX MONTHS after September 11th and BEFORE we invaded Iraq.
George W. Bush sent the terrorists of the world a clear message: If you attack the United States, we'll leave YOU alone and go after someone ELSE.
And that actually IS appeasement. REAL appeasement. Brought to you by George W. Bush.
