I point out six things:
the enemy attacked us, Jim [explaining why he invaded Iraq.]
~ George W. Bush (born: 1946-07-06 age: 67)
Jim, the president just said something extraordinarily revealing and, frankly, very important in this debate. In answer to your question about Iraq and sending people into Iraq, he just said the enemy attacked us. Saddam Hussein didn’t attack us; Osama bin Laden attacked us. Al Qaeda attacked us.
~ John Kerry (born: 1943-12-11 age: 70) Senator, in rebuttal
Of course I know Osama bin Laden attacked us. I know that. I know that. [That the USA attacked Iraq first]
~ George W. Bush (born: 1946-07-06 age: 67), 2004-09-30, admitting his dissembling that Iraq attacked the USA when Kerry challenged him in the first presidential debate.
As we now know, Iraq had no tie to Osama, no role in 9/11, no nuclear program, no weapons of mass destruction, no plans to attack us. Its people did not threaten us and did not want war with us.
~ Pat Buchanan (born: 1938-11-02 age: 75) 2004-02-11
We have no evidence that Saddam Hussein was involved with the September 11th attacks.
~ George W. Bush (born: 1946-07-06 age: 67), 2003-09-17, audio.
He [Saddam Hussein] has not developed any significant capability with respect to weapons of mass destruction. He is unable to project conventional power against his neighbors.
~ General Colin Powell (born: 1937-04-05 age: 76) 2001-02-02
What is happening here is a guilty conscience. Americans are afraid of revenge because they know what they have done is unforgivable. They know they deserve to die and be tortured for what they have done.
The crusades in the middle ages were fueled by a similar irrational hatred of Muslims. Americans are reacting not to real Muslims, but to propaganda stereotypes of Muslims. I personally know dozens of Muslims. They are no more terrifying than Jehovah’s witnesses. Back in the ’90s two of my employees embezzled so much money I had shut down my computer manufacturing business. A Muslim man, Nabil, heard of my predicament and volunteered to help me do all the work of shutting down. I was very suspicious at the time, hurt as much by the betrayal of trust by people I considered my friends as by the loss of my life savings. Nabil helped me through a very black part of my life, out of a religious sense of doing what was right. I had no money to pay him. He had a little rug for prayers.
Americans afraid of Muslims are like a child with a machine gun blasting away at imaginary monsters under the bed.
I am amazed at how many clinically paranoid Americans there are. I am sick to the teeth of them. I am to the point I wish some hideous fate would befall them to wipe them off the face of the earth. I have run out of patience. Cowardice combined with wilful ignorance is driving Americans to behave in a brutal and insane way.
