Same Old Song And Dance, My Friend
Bush gave his weekly radio address today. He's still trying to justify the war in Iraq by using September 11, 2001. "In a few weeks, our country will mark the four-year anniversary of the attacks of September the 11th, 2001. On that day, we learned that vast oceans and friendly neighbors no longer protect us from those who wish to harm our people. And since that day, we have taken the fight to the enemy," said Bush. "We're fighting the terrorists in Afghanistan, Iraq, and around the world, striking them in foreign lands before they can attack us here at home." And, according to Bush, our troops are "...fighting in Iraq, Afghanistan, and elsewhere to protect their fellow Americans from a savage enemy." (Excerpt of Bush's 8/20/05 Radio Address from CBS5.com). Come on Bush! Most Americans now know that Iraq had nothing to do with 9-11, that Iraq was not a major source of terrorists until the US invaded, and US freedom has nothing whatsoever to do with the war in Iraq. Bush sounds like a broken record. He says the same thing everytime he speaks to the American People. Some see this as not wavering, but I see it as nothing better to say. To save face, Bush reiterates the same old nonsense time and time again. The number of people realizing the war was a mistake is growing, up to 54%. Peace vigils and protests are cropping up all over this country, and soon Bush will be forced to admit his big mistake, and hopefully, bring our men and women home.
