Who would have thought the "we will keep bombing you until you love us" policy wouldn't work out?

I'm sure Bush would embrace peace-nik Hippie-Talk if he knew it would be a great way to start and maintain a war.

This was never about freedom and liberty. Bush is an old fashion elitist, he engaged in mass death and the destruction of families for reasons that have nothing to do with “liberty and freedom.”

I really am getting tired of people who believe it was Bush's naiveté and his willingness to dream and that is why so many have been killed and maimed.

Bush has a very dark heart, trying to cover it in the rhetoric of dreams and hope is truly degenerate.

Shooting a Quran will get a soldier out of Iraq, eh? I predict a rash of Quran shootings in the near future.

Does it have to have bullet holes or can we go with basic graffiti?

Liberation isn't important. Getting Iraq to normal isn't. Afghanistan isn't either. We can just walk away. Dreams? Why bother, we don't have to, bye. If we left now, it wouldn't make any difference.

The point might be the bombing of New York and the pentagon,etc. was wrong. The cost for the terrorists is pretty high. Iran has alot of infrastructure.

The problem is being nice. We can leave now, there's nothing we can do. Next time, we'll keep it in the air. Bomb anything of value and let them starve.

The Boys with the Arab Trap as I termed it.

It could have been a brilliant career.

mattbastard wins!

Lousy T-shirt is in the mail*.

Arab Strap dight be my favorite record of B & S, and it might be my favorite track as well.

(no t-shirt or other prizes actually awarded for guessing song allusions. all references to gifts is purely accidental. void where exhibited)

Is it wicked not to care?

Their love hate affair with their racist clientele

Is it wicked not to care?

sure, if you're feeling sinister.

Dear Catastrophe Soldier?

The Qur'an shootin' soldier should be brought onstage at a convocation of several hundred of his comrades, and introduced along the lines of "someone is going to maim or kill one or more of you because of this guy."

What they do to him after that, I dunno.

Tell us how to get there... Does it make sense to spend lives and treasure if there is no clear path to "normal"? Does it make sense when our presence contributes to the very problem we claim we're solving?

More to the point, is there any evidence that "liberation" was a realistic objective in the first place? That it was the actual objective?

Did you order a Code Red?

That is a problem, isn't it.

It's not. No more than it is for the "pro-life" rhetoric, "states rights" rhetoric, "strict constitutionalism" rhetoric, "free market" rhetoric, "small government" rhetoric, or any other bullshit rhetoric.

methinks the Bush administration's attitude is perhaps best summed up by the title of a certain debut single by The Cure . . .
