Just imagine if some foreign demagogue had caused the daily slaughter of scores of people in America’s capitol city. I wonder what we would think of him, and of the people who brought him to power. We gripe, for good reason, about Osama bin Laden, but his act of terrorism pales in comparison to that of George Bush’s, whose ranting and lying has caused the deaths of about 3,000 innocent people every two months for the past forty-eight months. That’s 24 9/11 attacks, all on a population that was COMPLETELY INNOCENT of terrorism against America. I wonder what we would think of him and his country when his only response to this continual slaughter of our neighbors is that he will “stay the course,” while his propaganda machine churns out an ongoing stream of lies and disinformation, and his country’s government-friendly media willingly plays along.
Bush says we’re safer today than we were before 9/11. Somehow, I don’t think so.
