The Awesome threat

Posted to Poetry and Politics

I agree. We are truly facing some incredible threats in our time.

The threat of weapons of mass destruction like the ones Hussein had in ... oh wait. Bush lied to us.

Or maybe terrorists, like the al Qaeda operatives that Hussein had ... whoops, Bush lied to us again.

Or maybe it's leaders that (among other things) lie to the public on a consistent basis, resulting in a pointless war that costs hundreds of young men and women in the armed forces their lives and kills tens of thousands of civilians. It has not made America or the World safer. It is costing us and our children billions of dollars, a fraction of which could have been spent on tracking down the man who has actually attacked America.

Anyone remember Osama bin Laden?

Hussein illegally invaded Kuwait. Bush illegally invaded Iraq. Hussein is on trial now. Why not Bush?
