Since day one of the 9/11 bombing, the people of the United States and Western Europe have been subject to an amazing propaganda campaign concerning the presence of terrorists and their plans to destroy society. Three men who were close friends of those who bombed the London transit system in 2005 were cleared of any involvement in the bombings which means that after four years of investigation no one has ever been found who actually participated in the tragic events of those days. The three defendants hate the West and most probably would have participated in the actions of their friends, but believing is not the same as acting.
The verdicts represent a blow to Scotland Yard’s Counter Terrorism Command which devoted tens of thousands of police hours conducting an investigation that never found anyone. Most probably some who participated in planning the bombings are still alive and wandering the streets of England or some other locale. But, they are not in jail.
Western societies have to free themselves of the belief that every Muslim hides within his soul a desire to be suicide bomber or destroy Western nations. There are criminal groups in every society, so why should Muslims be any different than the rest of humankind?
The greatest hoax perpetrated on the American people by George Bush was not searching for WMD but waging a war on terror. The word “terror” is ambiguous since one person’s terror is another person’s delight. British Foreign Secretary David Miliband strongly denounced the Bush program of a war on terror which has led to the debasement of the rule of law. “The idea of a war on terror gave the impression of a unified enemy, embodied in the figure of Osama bin Laden and al-Qeda.” As Miliband pointed out, “the reality is that the motivation and identities of terrorist groups are disparate.” Bush attempted to give the impression these terror groups were somehow united and under a central direction.
A nation can not wage “war” against an idea-terror-it can only wage war against an entity comprising some form of organization and coherence. The notion of a “war on terror” is a mistaken one which has confused the issue of how to organize efforts to win people over to the cause of democracy. Why do people anywhere in the world support terrorists? This question should be among the key ones posed by those who wish to lessen the impact of terrorists in the world. Bush always believed armed force would defeat “terrorism” and that will probably be his enduring mistake in history.
President George Bush has been an outstanding leader of the United States from the first moment when he allowed himself to be interrupted reading a children’s story in order to be flown away to safety. Cowards like Bill Clinton would have remained in the safety of a kindergarten room, but George Bush stood up to terrorists. Who can forget his brave seizing of a bullhorn to loudly proclaim to assembled construction workers his belief America would be triumphant and they should not be upset at not having the government spend its valuable money on their health problems? Of course, George Bush really proved his bravery under fire when he defied sea sickness to stand on a moving aircraft carrier and announce the war was over. Most American presidents would have taken the cowardly path of refusing to acknowledge American had won the war in Iraq.
In his latest defiance of death, George Bush became the first president in American history who ducked not one–but two shoes thrown at him!! Yes, liberal scoffers and do-gooders will probably poke fun at this incredibly brave performance. The TV screen does not lie, George Bush used his physical and mental mobility to duck two shoes thrown at him by a crazed Iraqi terrorist and thus saved, not merely his life, but the entire shoe industry of America. Just think about the reaction of the American public if Bush had been struck by a shoe– people would have refused buying shoes and thousands would have lost their jobs!
George “Two Shoe Ducking” Bush will go down in history as the bravest American president in history. It proves conclusively what Rush Limbaugh and other Republican pundits have been saying–Bush was selected by Jesus Christ himself to save the world from the evil of atheistic shoe throwing people.
