"According to Zak, the terrorist are not responsible for any deaths.
Peace loving angels they are!"
i have never said a word about the terrorists being not responsible.
of course they are, however, without bush being at the helm and allowing such a scenario to happen, thousands of people would still have their lives (yeah yeah and a bunch of iraqis would be dead under saddam).
bush is CIC
, he gave orders that led to this mega fubar. he up till now has not made the slightest attempt to revoke his position, he even further fuels the hatred by including his very personal religion into the issue. without current u.s. policies these people would not have the excellent "working enviroment" they have now.
bush, by ordering this war, is responsible for the death of almost a thousand u.s. citizens to this day, scores of injured, many crippled for life et cetera.
and do not try to justify the war with "but saddam would have killed many of his own people too", even if he was a brutal dictator, i doubt there would have been as many dead iraqis as there had been since the war started. apart from that, since when is it the u.s. presidents job to look after the well being of avg joe from iraq, at the cost of u.s. lives and 100+bn of u.s. taxpayers money?
be more realistic about it, with that kind of money countless more things could have been done that would have been more effective at "helping" people or fighting terrorism. as for now the money and lives spent in iraq are diverted from the real, important, war on terror and used to sponsor "terrorism the next generation". if compassion was the motive of the u.s. administration, they would have to war 50 other countries at least, many of those full of villains that members of the administration have been good friends with since reagans and bush sr.'s term.
