Bubble Boy

Crusader Bunnypants:
Our efforts in Iraq and the broader Middle East will require more time, more sacrifice and continued resolve. ... What is important is that Iraqis are now addressing these issues through debate and discussion -- not at the barrel of a gun.
Three points:

1. "the broader Middle East"? What the hell does that mean? Iran? Syria?

2. "more sacrifice"? Most Americans are not sacrificing a damn thing -- and a clear majority are against the occupation. Asking them to do something more than slap an easily-removed magnet on the back of their cars will only increase that number.

3. "not at the barrel of a gun"? The man is flat-out delusional. Nope, no problem with violence in Iraq. No, siree! Maybe he's kept so shielded from reality -- so far into his own bubble -- that he thinks the American troops are getting rose petals tossed at them in Iraq.

What about how we're "fighting the terrorists in Iraq so we don't have to face them here" line? Does anyone actually believe that?

I'm so embarrassed that this ass is the face of this nation.

I don't know which is more amazing - that they have the gall to say that, or that people do actually believe them.

Hi Stankyfish. I like to see Joy of Sox readers over here.

Hello l-girl -- there are two things you can't separate from being a New Englander -- the Red Sox and politics.

All of these morans are delusional. When questionned about the less-than-warm reception American troops received after the invasion, Douglas Feith said that the Iraqis had flowers in their minds. Mind flowers. WTF?

Speaking of delusional, now Bush claims that he's the present day FDR, and Iraq is the new Japan and we must make them an ally.

On top of that, the war, which Bush had always denied was about oil, is now all about oil:

''If Zarqawi and [Osama] bin Laden gain control of Iraq, they would create a new training ground for future terrorist attacks. They'd seize oil fields to fund their ambitions. They could recruit more terrorists by claiming a historic victory over the United States and our coalition."
