I voted for Bush and I am so thankful that he won.

What part of "Thou shalt not commit murder" don’t you understand? Perhaps you can explain it to the families of the 100,000 dead Iraqis, since their country didn’t have those WMD and wasn’t supporting Al Qaeda.

I do understand. You have your information in error. The Baathists (a socialist party that Sadaam Hussein was in control of for his entire tenure in office)did have WMDs and they did support Al Queda. I am not in charge of anything to explain anything to dead people, even if I could. That does not make sense.

You misread, I suggested you explain to the families of the dead, not the dead themselves. Though, at the rate we are going, there will be no living left.

If I have my information in error, please cite a reputable news source to support you. Instead, as usual, you put belief ahead of observation. No weapons of mass destruction have been found despite two years of intensive search, and all people looking for them have agreed that the programs had been abandoned long ago.

There has also been exactly zero evidence of ties between the Baathists and Al Qaeda, beyond a single casual contact which was never pursued. In fact, the only known Al Qaeda presence in Iraq was in the northern Kurdish zone (our ‘allies’), which the central government did not control.

While the Baathist’s were, in my opinion, an evil force in the region (not just Iraq), they were founded on the basis of secularism, not radical Islam. Yes, they killed many innocent people. In two years, though, we have killed more than they did in twelve, destroyed the ability for much of the remaining living to feed or cloth themselves, and sown the seed for radical Islam to run riot in Iraq for decades to come.

By sheer number of people murdered, Bush is a greater terrorist than Saddam Hussein and Osama Bin Laden combined.

I am mystified that I always do stuff when I have only posted a few times on here. You say "as usual". Indeed enigmatically disturbing…Do you think I am some ubiquitous being. Bi-location has been proven scientifically but only for rather small particles.

Excuse me, but this makes no sense at all. Always? Bi-location? Ubiquitous?

This message is incoherent. I am concerned for you friend, is there some help you should be seeking?
