More On The War

While I'm not a neo con, it still annoys me that people are so jumpy about the War on Terror/in Iraq. I just think, that we need to calm down and remember that stuff like this takes time. Hence, I am going to post a link to an article I read on the subject. Remember your history. Or learn it if you haven't already.

Edit: If you want to talk about oil, here's something else to read.

Here's a nerve firing of wit I concocted over at the Last Debate:

If I was GWB in 2003, I would have explained it this way: "

If you've got a mosquito problem, and the mosquito's are sucking your blood and passing on diseases to you, you can't negotiate with them, you have to kill them. There's two ways to do that: Wait for them to bite you and kill them while their on your skin, swat at them in mid-air, destroy their nests or put up a mosquito-lantern that attracts the mosquitos and kills them. Obviously the worst option is the second one. Now say those mosquitos are terrorists. We have carried out all other options but the last one. In the process of enstating a democracy in Iraq, we will enstate such a mosquito lamp, attracting terrorists that would otherwise be scattered and killing them on a field of battle rather than at home."

Isn't that the war on Terror in a nutshell? A war on mosquitos?

That's a good analogy. You're learning. ;oP

Thanks for sharing that. I like it (despite my Paleo conservative leanings that have been growing over the last few months).

;oP ? What does that mean

It basically means I'm making a joke.

It's a goofy face winking with it's tongue sticking out.

Sorry, I haven't been blogging long enough to see the face. A couple more months maybe.

No prob. The face is on it's side. I just do that 'cause I'm weird. It's an emoticon. I always put a nose on my emoticons, most people don't do that.
