Bush, Cleland offer clashing views on Iraq war
Ex-senator, Vietnam vet says do it right or get out, Bush lauds effort
The president, noting that the four-year anniversary of 9/11 is approaching, said "since that day, we have taken the fight to the enemy," saying the country has upended "terror cells and their financial support networks" and have taken insurgents on "in foreign lands before they can attack us here at home."
"Our troops know that they're fighting in Iraq, Afghanistan, and elsewhere to protect their fellow Americans from a savage enemy.
"They know that if we do not confront these evil men abroad, we will have to face them one day in our own cities and streets, and they know that the safety and security of every American is at stake in this war, and they know we will prevail," Bush said.
For the record, Max Cleland (having actually SERVED his country) came back from Vietnam a triple amputee. Herr Shrub is ONCE AGAIN taking 9/11 and manipulating it to draw ties to Iraq. Fucking bastard, I hate him. The only person I hate more at the moment is the pigfucking preacher who used my cousin Robb's funeral yesterday as an excuse to debunk evolution. I wished I were kidding. Me kicking his ass out of the chapel would have been as inappropriate as his incoherent dissertation on how we could not have 'evolved from a big bang or tadpoles or apes or chimpanzees...', the cunting fuck. He said that shit standing over the goddamned coffin I was about to carry, grinning this plastic fucking grin the whole time.
After the prayers at the gravesite, I walked with the other pallbearers to offer condolances to the rest of my family when this motherfucker had the nerve to stop me, put his hands on my shoulder and whisper (again while smiling) that Jesus loved me. I hissed back at him "Great - you tell him I said thanks..."
If I ever see that rat faced son of a whore, I'm punching him in his goddamned throat on sight.
