    In a speech at Fort Hood on 3/12, Dubbyuh's penchant for the historical revisionism, which he once scolded others for, once more reared its head.

    <blockquote> From the beginning, our goal in Iraq has been to promote Iraqi independence... - <a href=http://www.whitehouse.gov/news/releases/2005/04/20050412.html>GWB, 3/12/05</a></blockquote>

    Now as we were told, prior to an earlier bit of historical revisionism, the sole purpose for invading Iraq was to strip Iraq of its WMD's and deprive Saddam Hussein of the capability to produce weapons of WMD's neither of which, as history hs since shown us, were present in Iraq.

    Even more puzzling was this:

    <blockquote>The toppling of Saddam Hussein's statue in Baghdad will be recorded, alongside the fall of the Berlin Wall, as one of the great moments in the history of liberty. - <a href=http://www.whitehouse.gov/news/releases/2005/04/20050412.html>GWB, 3/12/05</a></blockquote>

    Now, I don't know if anyone actually saw the video of the event, but it was the US Marines that pulled the statue down while a crowd of Iraqi citizens stood by. The only thing this event will go down as is just another in a long line of blatantly staged photo-ops designed to serve the Administration.

    That's a fact. They STILL don't understand America's love of Ronald Reagan. The idea that a politician could open his mouth and speak the simple truth of his heart is so alien to the liberal ideal as to defy comprehension. Any non-liberal who experiences success is simply doing a better sales job on us. At the core of this mindset is liberalism's contempt for America and Americans.

    What you were told from (insert leftist site here) and what Bush actually said during his State of the Union address with resprect to pre-invasion Iraq are actually two very different things. Shame you didn't take a few moments to reference the actual text of the speech to recognize the humanitarian and democratic concerns which were also spelled out clearly and equally among other concerns in that particular address to the nation.

    Absolutely agree.

    What, are we supposed to feel that somehow the first time introduction of real Democracy in a middle eastern state is an insignificant thread in the unfolding of 21st century history?

    Just because there was some kind of spontaneous uprising in the center of Baghdad by the few brave Iraqi individuals who dared come out in the open in the still undecided phase of liberation, and they were caught w/o sufficient equipment to topple the statue in full view and immenent or latent danger from their prior oppressive regime, you have to somehow warp this into some attempt by the U.S. military to contrive an uprising where you say none existed. And you know full well such true sentiment against Saddam existed in the majority.

    I think it's dishonest of you to deny that.

    No, what will go down in history, and what will be taught to the worlds' future children, at least in the vetted media of the West, will be the fact that the world changed for the common person in the Middle East, beginning with 9-11, and the liberation of Afganistan from the oppressive Taliban, and continued until Iraqi citizens were freed from the yoke of Saddam, and that this began a revolution among all Middle Eastern states to the benefit of its common citizenry.

    Thank you.

    Ask Bully anything - "How's the weather?" will do nicely. His instantaneous, reflexive reply will be, "Which answer hurts George Bush?" It does wonders for one's credibility.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one that got a bit riled up when the left tried to pull this, again. Seems the Professor wrote on it and got quite a few emails. Lots of links at site:
