Thread Name: BS: Bye Bye Abu Musab al-Zarqawi
Subject: RE: BS: Bye Bye Abu Musab al-Zarqawi
The only problem is BB is (as usual) dead wrong. A pullout from Iraq would not in fact be "al-Queda's wishes". Al-Queda (Osama) hopes we stay there --and suffer the death of 1,000 cuts--with our soldiers being picked off by twos and threes---- forever.

And not only that, even the Bush "team" realizes this. BB and Hubby must be 2 of the last (literate?) people left who don't realize this.

The Bush regime --desperately-- also wants a pullout from Iraq---but wants to declare victory (again) before doing so. They realize the bloom has been off the rose a good long time now---Bush's allegedly virtually bloodless victory (US blood, anyway)--soured right quick--and the steady trickle of US and UK coffins from Iraq continues. Pointing this out is not, as you oh-so-reasonable Bushites like to picture it, sympathizing with Osama. It's just stating facts. So sorry if they're not to your liking.

At this point "victory" for the Bush regime can only be an Iraqi government strong enough to not need US military assistance. First question is how long it will take to get to that stage--if Iraq ever reaches it. Second question is how many dead Coalition (read US and UK) troops it will take to get there.

It is also true that it would be Osama's fondest hope that the US would start a war with Iran, as Carol and I--and others--have said over and over.

And it's obvious why Osama wants us both in Iran and Iraq. Anybody who likes to stir up trouble--and that's his MO for sure--any argument there?--needs a bogeyman, as Bobert has pointed out. And the US, as embodiment of the rich, decadent West, is the perfect villain. So the more Moslems the US attacks, the better for Osama.

If you don't believe this, please tell us exactly why--as distinguished from your usual--classic Bushite approach--of smearing anybody who doesn't agree with you as terrorist sympathizers. How about some logic--for once?
