And I can’t blame him. As we stand on the brink of war that may be within hours of starting, Sol takes a moment to summarize and make sense of the logic behind the decisions The Shrub(TM) is making.
We are attacking a country, defying the will of the U.N., in order to show the world that you can’t defy the will of the U.N.
We are attacking a country, ignoring the will of the people, in order to get rid of a dictator that ignores the will of his people.
We are attacking a country that has been penned in for 12 years and shows no sign of going anywhere in order to free its people from oppression – the same people that were gassed (with weapons we provided) by a madman we installed as ruler, while we just shook our heads, chuckled, and said, “Oh, that nutty Saddam…”
We are attacking a country in order to promote democracy – except that democracy in Iraq would mean Iranian-minded people would rule Iraq and Iran, so scratch that plan.
We are attacking a country using weapons of mass destruction (I’d like to see ones that are not) in order to rid them of their weapons of mass destruction – weapons we have proof that they have but can’t seem to find – while other countries brag about having them and profess the will to use them.
We are attacking a country for colluding with terrorists by employing the aid of the very countries from which terrorists struck American soil.
We are attacking a country in order to eliminate terrorism by giving terrorist organizations a new cause to rally around.
Yeah, I’d say that about sums it up. Don’t worry Sol, it don’t make any sense to me either. I guess I’m just not edumacated enough to figger it out.
