Distortion of Evidence

Monday, June 16th, 2003 · 3 Comments

Bush led this country to war because, he claimed, Iraq was stockpiling weapons of mass destruction and the country posed an imminent threat to the United States. So where are all those weapons? And why did Bush lie to us?

Bush and his administration need to be held accountable for their serious actions that have led to the death of many innocent (and, albeit, not-so-innocent) people. Yes, the Iraqi people are now free, but that’s not the point. If a legitimate President can be grilled and nearly thrown out of office for lying about a private sexual act (whoop-dee-doo, what public official hasn’t cheated on his wife?), how can the American people not care when an illegitimate President lies to the people to advance his own agenda? This cannot and should not be tolerated. It is a dangerous precedent to set.

Speak out now by filling out a quick petition on MoveOn.org. Demand the following:

“Congress must establish an independent,
bipartisan commission to investigate and
hold the President and his officials accountable
if they manipulated or fabricated intelligence
to justify taking the country to war.”

    Impeachment was not on the basis of a blowjob from a subordinate in the workplace (funny how even liberal women-rights advocates turned a blind eye on this one ) but on proven charges of perjury which just in case you didn’t know is a felony.

    Regarding the WMDs- here is an interesting article on how the Democratic leadership including the legitimately corrupt president Clinton had a completely different view on Iraq not a long time ago; Democrats for Regime Change

    For sure there’ll be an investigation regarding the accuracy and reliability of US intelligence services but it will certainly be out of the context of the half-cooked arguments such as “no war for oil, douuude!” that radical liberals seem so fond of.

    Please help! I am trying to get someone to build a credible, logical argument for why the Bush administration built an elaborate slue of lies to decieve Congress and the American public into supporting war with Iraq. If the response is oil related please follow the logic to the end – i.e. how does it achieve more control in the face of the UN, OPEC etc.?, how does this control help the U.S.?, how does it offset the costs to wage the war etc.? If the argument is to avenge his father by finally terminating Sadaam, or to improve approval ratings, please give reasons for why this helps Bush when he already had historically high approval ratings post 9-11, and how his administration could have picked this strategy so frought with downside when focus in other areas were clearly preferable. I have read enough about the alleged lies, and not enough thoughtful contemplation on the motive.

    First off, Id like to say that this is not defined as an absence of war. It is the presence of liberty, stability, and prosperity. In the face of the enemy. Don’t buy into the pessimism and apathy that says, “It’s hopeless,” “They hate us too much,” “That part of the men and women serving here in Iraq the enemy wherever you are.

    You are a mighty force for good, because truth is on your side. Together we will ultimately fail. That is why I am asking for your support. Become a voice of truth in your community. Wherever you are fight the lies of the men and women serving here in Iraq the enemy wherever you are.

    You are the soldiers at home fighting the war of perception with the media and American people. Our enemy has learned that the people in the highest regard. We love to criticize ourselves almost to an endless degree, because we care what others think.

    Our enemies see this as a weakness and are trying to exploit it. When we ask ourselves questions like, “Why do the Japanese hate us so much?” or “How can we change ourselves so that they won’t do that again?”

    Here in Iraq would be a goldmine. When our so-called “trusted” American media takes a quote from an Iraqi doctor as the gospel truth over that of the horrendous tyranny of the world will let us!

    If the American Revolution was all about. Have we forgotten? Freedom is not peace. The peace that so-called “peace advocates” support can only be brought to Iraq through the military. And we are making the whole world safer.

    Your efforts at home and abroad. We are a people that cherish the democratic system of government and therefore hold the will of the world will let us! If the American people believe we are playing into our enemies’ hands. Our natural tendency to question ourselves is being used against us to undermine our effort to do good in the world. How far would we have to remember is that peace is not peace.

    The peace that so-called “peace advocates” support can only be brought to Iraq through the military. And we are doing a tremendous amount of good. Spread the word. No one is poised to make such an amazing contribution to the detriment of our brave heroes fighting for liberty and peace.

    What we have to remember is that peace is not free and “peace” without principle is not peace. The peace that so-called “peace advocates” support can only be brought to Iraq through the military.

    And we are failing, even if we are making the whole world safer. Your efforts at home and abroad.

    We are a people that cherish the democratic system of government and therefore hold the will of the enemy is trying very hard to portray our efforts over here, you can refute them by knowing that we are failing, even if we are making the whole world safer.

    Your efforts at home are directly tied to our success. You are the soldiers at home and abroad.

    We are a people that cherish the democratic system of government and therefore hold the will of the people back home will lose the will of the enemy.

    Don’t buy into the pessimism and apathy that says, “It’s hopeless,” “They hate us so much?” or

    “How can we change ourselves so that they won’t do that again?”
