Osama rears his ugly head
So… is anyone else as creeped out as I am that Osama’s tape parrots several standard Democratic talking points? (I mention a few, look around the blogosphere for more)
It never occurred to us that the commander in chief of the American forces would leave 50,000 citizens in the two towers to face those horrors alone at a time when they most needed him because he thought listening to a child discussing her goat and its ramming was more important than the planes and their ramming of the skyscrapers. This gave us three times the time needed to carry out the operations, thanks be to God. . . He [Bush] adopted despotism and the crushing of freedoms from Arab rulers and called it the Patriot Act under the guise of combating terrorism.
What was he supposed to do? Flee the room quickly and scare the crap out of the little kids? What would leaving early accomplish? This all sounds so familiar… Farenheit 9/11, perhaps?
Security is an important foundation of human life, and free people do not squander their security, contrary to Bush's claims that we hate freedom. Let him tell us why we did not attack Sweden, for example.
Um… can you say red herring? The USA is obviously the most powerful symbol of freedom in the world, so this argument is retarded. Attacking America had 100 times the effect on the world attacking Sweden would have.
We fight you because we are free and because we want freedom for our nation.
How does attacking us help you gain your freedom? Attacking innocent civilians in the most powerful country on the planet may win you friends in Europe and the Middle East, but I doubt that it affects your freedom too much. Which nation is that specifically? If you tell us, then we can come liberate your country for you, since apparently you're too damn cowardly to do it yourself, and believe that dropping two towers on thousands of innocent people is a better use of your time and resources.
