Default Do you support Bush?

I suppose this is an overlap of many topics, but i hope this thread will help me understand more opinions.

OVERALL i support Bush. I've always thought the WMD reason was a mistake for the USA to hang its motives on. I wanted us to remove Saddamn because HE WAS AN UNACCEPTABLE THREAT TO NECCESSARY MIDDLE EAST STABILITY.

And concerning the phone tapping stuff, I think many don't have their priorities in order. Yes, it would be best if such sticky actions were free of constitutional issues, but it's most inportant that WE ARE FINDING TERRORISTS THAT ARE PLANNING TO KILL US EN MASSE. The white house has stressed that phomes are only tapped against those that are credible suspects. I WANT THIS TO CONTINUE. DON'T YOU? And honestly, i couldn't care less if the goverment is listening to my bad beat phone stories. I have nothing to hide.

Your thoughts?

You forgot "think of the children". Bush is making the world safe for the children to live in. You don't want your children growing up in a dangerous world, do you?

"HE WAS AN UNACCEPTABLE THREAT TO NECCESSARY MIDDLE EAST STABILITY."

None of his neighbors in the region perceived him to be a threat.

"WE ARE FINDING TERRORISTS THAT ARE PLANNING TO KILL US EN MASSE."

We can do this without breaking the law. The consitution does not have to be a casualty in the so called war on terra.

"The white house has stressed that phomes are only tapped against those that are credible suspects"

They lie all the time.

"And honestly, i couldn't care less if the goverment is listening to my bad beat phone stories. I have nothing to hide."

Move to China if you like facsism so much.

Sometimes common knowledge = propaganda in the US

The president of the United Arab Emirates described U.S. threats of military action as "bad and loathsome," and declared that Iraq does not pose a threat to its neighbors.

I'll need to check the UAE fact myself, but Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Israel (of course), and IRAN definitely considered Saddamn a threat.

[/ QUOTE ]Iran opposed the American invasion most clearly -- and repeatedly pointed out the hypocrisy of Washington in going to war against a regime they were supporting in the Iraq-Iran War. Jordan opposed the invasion, as well, and tried to mediate the crisis.

Of course, Kuwait* and Saudi Arabia welcomed the invasion, a position which has destabilized the Kingdom, perhaps for good.

But I was surprised about Israel! Are you sure about that? I mean, Israel opposes the invasion of Arab countries, right?.. [img]/images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]

* Note that Kuwait, in both geographical and historical terms, rightly belongs to the ruler of Mesopotamia. Saddam's original demands were very much justified, in the previous Gulf War! A fact which was tacitly recognized by the U.S. Ambassador to Baghdad at the time -- or, at least, not contested. Check the history books : The ridiculous borders in the fertile crescent of modern Mesopotamia were drawn by the French and British --represented by a woman!-- colonialists in the early years of the 20th century, and were mostly dictated by the respective oil companies, in accordance to what they knew then about oilfields!

Then why did we still have the No-Fly Zone in effect or the sanctions in place?

As far as the "wire tapping" issue, I have seen and read that it was only numbers that:

a) Were contained in material seized from captured terrorists.

b) Were coming from or to known terrorists.



The Dem's are just "playing politics" with our national security once again. Al Quaeda members DO NOT HAVE PROTECTIONS OF THE CONSTITUTION!!! Why isn't there an investigation into which official leaked this?

Why isn't there an outrage about President Clinton when he used the spy satellites to spy on Americans? Because the ACLU (all crazy liberals united or all crazy lawyers united) is a liberal activist group.
