Bush's Reality

Wednesday, June 29, 2005

The fantasy-laden speech by President Bush last night made me wonder when this country morphed into Bizzaro World. Is the country really as uneducated/uninformed as it seems to be, or would people believe anything Bush says?
What rational American could possibly buy into Bush's false reality? In classic republican fear-peddling form, the President made the claim that Iraq is the front in the war on terror and that we are fighting them there so we don't have to face them here. Of course this fantasy was supported with the usuall 9-11 rhetoric.
Back to reality: The 9-11 terrorists came from Saudi Arabia, not a single highjacker was from Iraq. There was no and is no terrorism in Iraq, this is an insurgency against an occupying force. Were the American colonists terrorists?
Bin Laden/Al-Quida had no connection to Iraq and Sadam either physical or ideological. The President also claimed Iraq will be a shining light in the middle east and democracy will spread through the area.
Back to reality: The invasion and occupation of Iraq has only strengthened the ideology of the jihadist. Killing the innocent people of Iraq only creates terrorists. There were zero car bombings in Iraq before we showed up. Bin Laden could not have created a better recruitment strategy. Bush played right into his hands by invading a country that posed no threat to the United States.
All this makes me wonder just how far people's belief in Bush's false reality goes. If the President came out on a dark night and told us it was, in fact, daytime would they believe that too?
