CRAWFORD, Texas (CNN) -- "President Bush will launch a new round of speeches to rally support for the war in Iraq, advisers said Sunday, as protesters camped outside Bush's Texas home and polls showed weaker support for the two-year conflict.
"Senior aides say Bush will attempt to portray the Iraq conflict in the context of long wars like World War II, which U.S. forces fought from 1941 to 1945.
"They said the president also will invoke the September 11, 2001, attacks, arguing once again that the insurgents battling American troops in Iraq share the same ideology as the al Qaeda operatives who crashed hijacked jetliners into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and a Pennsylvania field".
Bush is pushing the same old envelope again, but this time most see that the envelope is empty. He can push it forever but it’s not going anywhere. Many fence sitters have hopped off the fence and those who still support him aren’t as proud to brag about him as they once were.
Someone should tell him that each and every time he mentions 9-11 in the same sentence with the war in Iraq, the public sees that he is using the deaths of all those who died on that horrific morning for his own political reasons. The grieving families of the 9-11 victims should give him hell for using their dead loved ones to justify a war where many more grieving families have been, and are still being, created. They should demand that he respect their dead, not use them to justify his lies. Could he and his administration be any more irreverent? Every person in the US should be incensed by what this heartless man is doing and he’s doing it in our name. I can see only one reason that he would continue to try to connect 9-11 and the war in Iraq, he must be insane. And, to compare this war to World War II simply goes on to confirm my opinion. Either the man is completely insane or he’s one of the world’s most desperate people. Neither is comforting, is it?
