Thread Name: BS: Great Speech Mr. Kerry!
Subject: RE: BS: Great Speech Mr. Kerry!
Don't you see...admitting you were wrong and then doing the right thing is not viewed as strong. God forbid Bush admit he might have been wrong. Yet it's there for all to see. 9/11 had nothing to do with Bush going after Iraq. He'd have done it anyway. What exactly is his exit policy? He was all about Shock and Awe. How fucking arrogant. Spent a lot of money and made a lot of people rich. Even his father did it better. The 78 billion he tried to bribe Turkey with to launch his war on Iraq would have gone a long way to make sure no child was left behind. Funny how there's 78 billion to bribe Turkey with, but not enough to really help education or the problems of heatlh care. If America really wants the rest of the world to emulate us, hadn't we better show them how to do it by fixing our own faults? It seems that education, health care and jobs are just buzz-words used by politicians. America will never really have the respect of the rest of the world until we really show them why our system and way of life is better. As for the Arab/Muslim problem, why has no one suggested sitting down and talking with these people and find out what exactly is pissing them off. Is it really that they just hate us? They just hate freedom? I don't think so. I think they hate our policies. And the world will never be safe until we accept that we cannot force our way of life on others. We need to show them how it works in reality not just on fancy old parchment.
