A new CBS News/New York Times poll out Monday shows that most Americans want to see U.S. troops start coming home from Iraq.
Here’s a thought, what if America stop fighting would the war stop? Think about it a minute all of you who wishes the war to end. Would the war end if the United States brought the troops home?
Democrats promise to end the war, Hillary Clinton has promised as much Gov. Bill Richardson said he could get all the troops out of Iraq in five months. Sen. Christopher Dodd claimed he could do it in seven months, while Sen. Joe Biden was insistent that it would take a full nine months to a year. So if Liberal’s dreams were realized and U.S. troops were brought home what would happen? REMEMBER…
War was declared on America first in 1996 and again in 1998 by Osama bin Laden. Bin Laden has been indicted for terrorism by the U.S. States District Court.
The indictment states that beginning in 1993, Al Qaeda began
training Somali tribes to oppose the United Nation's humanitarian
effort in Somalia. In October, members of Al Qaeda participated in an
attack on U.S. military personnel where 18 soldiers were killed and 73
others wounded in Mogadishu. In another reference, the indictment
noted that an unnamed "co-conspirator" transported weapons and
explosives from Khartoum to Port Sudan for transshipment to the Saudi
The indictment noted that Al Qaeda, Bin Laden's international terrorist group, reached an agreement with Iraq not to work against the regime of Saddam Hussein and that they would work cooperatively with Iraq, particularly in weapons development and forged alliances with the National Islamic Front in Sudan and with the government of Iran and with its associated group Hezballah to "work together against their perceived common enemies in the West, particularly the United States." (That’s right true believers evidence filed in U.S. District Court has al Qaeda, Osuma bin Laden and Saddam Hussein’s regime in Iraq working cooperatively!)
It is important to note that although bin Laden is under indictment for agreeing to cooperate with Iraq in terrorist pursuits, by the Clinton administration, there are those who oppose the war in Iraq claiming that there is not any connect between bin Laden, terrorism and Iraq. (I guess all the, ‘What are we doing in Iraq’ nonsense is pure ignorance, now isn’t it?)
But remember before the United States had one boot on the ground, before Congress gave President Bush the authority to go to war in Iraq and before Congress voted to fund one single dollar for the war in Iraq there were multiple acts of war committed against the United States and American interest.
Under the Clinton administration a series of terrorist acts were carried out against the United States on American soil and against American interest they included; the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center (WTC I); the 1996 attack on the U.S. military barracks Khobar Towers, in Saudi Arabia; the 1998 attacks on U.S. Embassies in Africa; the 1999 "Millennium" plot; and the 2000 attack on U.S.S. Cole.
Multiple terrorist attacks against the United States only progressively increasing in violence and death with each additional attack becoming grander in scale finally commentating in over 3,000 deaths on American soil on September 11, 2001.
America was not at war at the time of any of these terrorist attacks. America was at peace. America did not have troops deployed for war.
It is likely that at least 100,000 people have died from violence [of war], disease and other conditions related to forced displacement, [ethnic cleansing] and insufficient access to humanitarian assistance. The toll of death and displacement continues to rise. Those left homeless are still at risk: camps are poorly protected, and women and girls are frequently the targets of sexual attacks when they venture from the camp to find firewood and food for their animals.While Darfur is a trendy slogan for Hollywood types to pitch while wearing a cute “Save Darfur” button no one not the United Nations or anyone else in the world is doing anything about the human casualties caused by Islamist killing and the religion of death that is spreading there.
Remember America didn’t start the war with terrorism and unless the one who started the war against the United States calls for its end this war will not end. Just ask Solomon Rushdie who is still under a 1989 Islamic fatwas which is a death warrant, Rushdie wrote a book and Islam has been warring against him for 18 years.
Rushdie has been in hiding for 18 years. I suspect that Islam’s war against Rushdie will not end until he dies.
If Democrats were able to bring the troops home tomorrow I suspect that the war would not end. America would just go into hiding like Rushdie and the war would not end until America dies.
It seem to me someone ought to be singing give peace a chance to Osama bin Laden maybe a camp Casey right outside the cave of bin Laden right outside the Afghanistan Pakistan border.
Cindy you up for a little plane ride?
