02:19 pm - And the President speaks. . .
I watched the Prez speak last night.

I have to say that I have never, ever seen anyone so insistent that we are not losing a war.

And all I wanted to do was watch Desperate Housewives.

Obviously you've never seen ME losing a war, then.

Because I don't lose. :D

He thinks (if you can call it that) that if he insists in a loud enough voice that we're "winning" the "War on Terror" by antagonizing more people into becoming terrorists using the same type of thing that we did which pissed other people off in the first place (coming in and forcing US-style "democracy" down their throats at gunpoint so that US corporations can make a tidy profit), that we will.

But he didn't say we were winning. I mean, he totally didn't say that. He said, time and time again, that we were not losing.

That is, in my opinoin, totally different.

Well, I didn't see it, but I'd call that a fairly bad rhetorical move.

it was a rerun

by which i was refering to *desperate housebabes,* although i suppose you could also lump the speech (which i insist was NOT actually 'live') into that category too.

War is arrogant men talking about monkeys. How can anyone lose with that?

I'll say. I didn't lose. My President said so.

It's sort of like Vietnam with a touch of Communism paranoia sprinkled on top, eh?

I'm happy to be Canadian.
Our major concern is lumber. And beer.

Softwood lumber, that is.

And don't forget, some "sex in a canoe" maker bought one of our beer companies, and stole The Great One...among other crimes...

Funny, I saw another speech, and the said the same thing...this morning. And come to think of it, he said the same thing a over the weekend...Holy Deja Vu Batman!

It just occured to me, I've heard this tune before!

"There's no place like home, there's no place like home, there's no place like home..."

It's like how christanity tends to be preached by the born-agains. JOHN 3:16. JOHN 3:16!!! THERE IS NO REST OF THE BIBLE!! RAWR!!!

Just my interpretation.

It's kind of unfortunate that he should find it necessary to make such an announcement (that we're not losing the war). I don't really blame him, though, because it's far easier for the anti-war folks to sell a doom and gloom story when 9/11 is just a faded, distant memory.

But as others have said, most people seem to forget that this is an unconventional war. The fact that we're experiencing continued resistance in Iraq is a very good sign to me. I lament the loss of life, and my heart goes out to the families separated from their loved ones. But I'm actually quite pleased that we're fighting this war in Iraq instead of New York or Ohio.

Things are going exactly according to plan, and the terrorists are being drawn from all corners of the middle east to that one remote desert to fight us on foreign soil. Please note that American cities are not being bombed, nuclear power plants are not being sabotaged, and planes are not being hijacked while this is happening. I say keep up the good work. I'd vote for George a third time if they'd let me. :)

My problem with this is that Iraq never attacked us. After Pearl Harbor, we didn't attack China. We didn't attack Australia. Our war was with Japan and its allies. Al Qaida had placed the U.S. and Iraq in its own version of "Axis of Evil." It just seems to me that Bush's policy is "The enemy of my enemy deserves to be obliterated, because I hate my enemy." I just don't see the logic.
