I think some of you people need to get a grip. It amazes me to watch the left-wingers agonize over the dreadful practice of what has now become known as “water-boarding.”
Do you even know what water-boarding is? Do you even understand what the word torture really means?
It seems crazy to me that you’ve turned your backs on Bush for doing exactly what he said he’d do following the attacks on New York City back in 2001. Do you even remember that day? Do you remember how scared you were? Do you remember wondering if we’d be hit again? I sure as hell do.
Maybe you just don’t get it. Maybe it’s because they don’t talk about it much on American Idol or Saturday Night Live. You sure don’t hear it talked about on MSNBC.
But here’s the deal, terrorism has become the scourge of the planet. Terrorists have been hijacking ships and aircraft, attacking skyscrapers, and mass transit systems anywhere and everywhere they can find a weakness. They’re responsible for mass murders in every part of the world. And most of it is done in the name of some twisted version of Islam.
Terrorists love recruiting kids, some of them as young as 10-years-old to carry out suicide missions against unsuspecting civilian populations. They purposely target society's weakest people, including the elderly, women, and children, in their effort to instill fear into governments and populations as a way to further their political and religious agendas.
In Iraq, terrorists are using vulnerable or otherwise unstable women as suicide bombers. On two different occasions they used mentally retarded women as unwitting suicide bombers. In both cases they strapped remote controlled explosive devices onto the women and set them off once the women had walked into crowded plazas, all from a safe distance. You know, they sure wouldn’t want to get hurt themselves.
How about the way the Taliban works in Afghanistan? Did you see the recent video of the man and woman accused of adultery? A group of these terrorists simply gathered them up and shot them to death on the spot. How about the young girl who was accused of simply looking at a man? Did you see what they did to her? They beat her half to death with whips and left her bleeding in the street where they found her.
You want to talk about torture, fine. But let’s be honest about it though. Let’s talk about the way terrorists like to decapitate their prisoners. But we’re not supposed to talk about that, are we. We’re not supposed to bring up all the videos they’ve made of themselves as they have a man tied up on his knees pleading for his life as they cut his head off, all the while they’re praying to Allah. Nah, we’re not supposed to bring that up.
We’re supposed to believe the left when they compare Bush and Cheney to Hitler and Joseph Stalin. Let’s see, Hitler and Stalin are personally responsible for the deaths of literally millions upon millions of people in the death camps they set up.
Bush and Cheney had doctors on hand during these interrogations to make sure these scum bags weren’t actually hurt during the process. Yeah, what a comparison.
You people can believe what you want, I really don’t care. But if you think for a minute that outing the CIA agents for what they did and prosecuting Bush and Cheney for war crimes is going to make look better in the eyes of a terrorist, and that they’ll suddenly like us better, then you’re out of your minds.
You can bag on him all you want. He brought a lot of it onto himself by destroying our economy in the first place. But love him or hate him, President Bush did what he was supposed to do. He kept all our sorry, ungrateful, asses safe from another terrorist attack. And if that meant he had to authorize the use of dunking some scum bag, terrorist under water a few times, tough.
War is hell and bad things happen. Want to talk about it? Head on over to the blog this week, I’m sure we’ll be discussing it further: www.rm235.blogspot.com or like always, you can e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
