IRAQ - WAR ON TERROR

Original post made by Jag Singh, Duveneck/St. Francis, on Sep 28, 2006

Spy agencies have confirmed what most Americans already know, namely, that the Iraq war has exacerbated the so called ‘war on terror’ and made America more vulnerable and less safe. Bush has displayed a callous disregard for the sanctify of human life – Americans and Iraqis - by launching a war of terror on a sovereign state and sending thousands of innocent people to their early graves, fueling Islamic radicalism and deep hostility towards the US. The Bush administration is now using the same script to intimidate and threaten Iran. Let us hope that logic will triumph over fear and our lawmakers will see fit to resist the failed policies of this reckless, dishonest and thoroughly incompetent administration. Finally, what is puzzling is the logic in creating 16 disparate spy agencies to perform essentially the same services. The average US citizen, armed with a calculator and a basic knowledge of the Iraq war would surely have come to the same conclusion and saved the treasury a great deal of money.
