Bush Plays The Fear Card, Again

Today Bush once again played the fear card hoping Americans are just as cowardly as they were in 2001. He's hoping for just one more chance to keep us safe. One more chance to keep torturing people. One more chance to lie and conceal. One more chance to paint his critics as traitors, real heroes as cowards and people of substance insubstantial. Bush wants to keep on lying and misleading.

In other words he wants a little more time and money to try and save his legacy. No one would want to go down in history as the worst of anything. Bush, as of today, will go down in history as our worst president. No one else is even close.

Today Bush, speaking at the commencement of The Coast Guard Academy, once again told us what we already know.

"In the minds of al-Qaida leaders, 9/11 was just a down payment on violence yet to come," Bush said during a commencement speech at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy in which he defended his decision to order a troop buildup in Iraq. "It is tempting to believe that the calm here at home after 9/11 means that the danger to our country has passed."

"Here in America, we are living in the eye of a storm," he said. "All around us, dangerous winds are swirling and these winds could reach our shores at any moment."

This all an attempt to get more time in Iraq, his argument being that it's where the terrorists are. They weren't there before we went in and through sheer incompetence gave them their chance. Al Qaeda had no presence in Iraq until we showed up and dismantled Iraq's internal security apparatus. We should have dismantled it but a plan to replace it would have been nice.

"Hear the words of Osama bin Laden: He calls the struggle in Iraq a `war of destiny,'" Bush said. "He proclaimed `The war is for you or for us to win. If we win it, it means your defeat and disgrace forever.'"
George Bush is a desperate man, the man he would bring to justice or take justice to, is being quoted to America to invoke fear.

Bush is trying to convince everyone that Osama has the power to control post-occupation Iraq. He wants us to believe that the fighting over there has nothing to do with fighting between Sunnis, Shiites, and Kurds. This is absolute nonsense. While the U.S. is bogged down in Iraq Osama is safe in Pakistan planning and carrying out terrorist attacks.

We know the world is a dangerous place and we know the terrorists want us dead. We also know that we will attacked in this country. We just don't think that Bush has a clue about how to deal with this. He has made the world's terror threat greater due to his mishandling of his Iraq adventure. He has taken his eye off of the ball and allowed Osama to be safe and secure somewhere in Pakistan.

Osama doesn't need Iraq, he has George Bush.
