I hate to be an "I told you so person". oh well.
I TOLD YOU SO!
"An unofficial study by a defense consultant shows that U.S. soldiers do not have military vehicles, equipment or armor needed for protection against Iraqi uprisings.... consequently that has meant 25% more American casualties in Iraq. The study cites that of the 190 killed by landmines, improvised explosive devices, or rocket-propelled grenade attacks, 'almost all those were killed while in unprotected vehicles... perhaps 1 in 4 of those killed in combat in Iraq might be alive if they had had stronger armor around them.' Additionally, 'thousands more who were unprotected have suffered grievous wounds, such as the loss of limbs.' Bush, however, continues to withhold funding that military officials say is desperately needed to plug shortfalls in armor and protection equipment." Read moreBuck Fush.
Editorial: In the past week I have heard from 4 people who were my friends say that I am over-reacting, being irrational and being too emotional. I have been accused of being ill informed and against this war because I simply don't like Bush's policies and accused of not being "clear thinking". If anyone reads the evidence I have posted and the evidence posted by fellow bloggers on this page, you will see that I am certainly not ill informed. You will see that I don't like Bush's policies because they are legally and morally wrong anyway you look at them unless you are watching Fox news.
The war in Iraq is not the war on terror. Reservists are not supposed to serve for 20 months. The National Guard is supposed to guard us here at home! Our borders are still wide open! Al Qaida is regrouping. Once warring Islamic factions are now united against us. If this sort of information does not alarm you, then you are ignorant or you are simply refusing to face reality. Insanity means that you are living in an alternate world and refusing to see the truth. Sanity means that you do face reality despite how terrible it may be. I am not insane. Look in the mirror. READ. Quit watching TV.
Your president admits that he doesn't read, that he goes to bed early, that he gets an idea in his head and then prays to god to keep him strong. He told a Saudi prince about his war plans before he told Colin Powell. His ideas and his policies are not theologically sound or in keeping with the constitution which he vowed to uphold. He isn't supposed to be mixing religion with politics anyway... but since he decided to do it... he is doing it wrong. This war does does not meet the criteria for a "just war". In fact only one church out of every church in the whole world condoned his war in Iraq: American Southern Baptists.
Bush sent our children to an unjust war to DIE and they are ill equipped! You should be outraged. If you are just sitting there, then you should be ashamed of yourself. I am writing letters daily and calling for action. The presidential race is dead even because Bush is a liar and operates a smear machine against anyone who tries to tell the truth. So just sit there and do nothing and while you are doing nothing, be sure not to even talk to me cause I don't want to hear from you anyway.
