    Bush press conference

    this guy Ken has worked with Bush since he was the governor of Texas

    Ken Herman, Cox News: "A lot of the consequences you mentioned for pulling out seem like maybe they never would have been there if we hadn't gone in. How do you square all of that?"

    Bush: "I square it because imagine a world in which you had Saddam Hussein, who had the capacity to make a weapon of mass destruction, who was paying suiciders to kill innocent life, who had relations with Zarqawi. Imagine what the world would be like with him in power. The idea is to try to help change the Middle East. . . .

    "You know, I've heard this theory about, you know, everything was just fine until we arrived and -- you know, the stir-up-the-hornet's- nest theory. It just doesn't hold water, as far as I'm concerned. The terrorists attacked us and killed 3,000 of our citizens before we started the freedom agenda in the Middle East. They were. . . . "

    Herman: "What did Iraq have to do with that?"

    Bush: "What did Iraq have to do with what?"

    Herman: "The attacks upon the World Trade Center?"

    Bush: "Nothing. Except for it's part of -- and nobody's ever suggested in this administration that Saddam Hussein ordered the attack. Iraq was a -- Iraq -- the lesson of September the 11th is: Take threats before they fully materialize, Ken. . . .

    "I fully believe it was the right decision to remove Saddam Hussein, and I fully believe the world is better off without him. Now the question is: How do we succeed in Iraq?"
    i don't know George... how do we? Maybe you should of thought about that prior to war.

    Getting Saddam's pistol was well worth $300 Billion, 2500 US dead, 60,000 MAIMED, and the unnecessary deaths of over 100,000 Innocent Iraquis at the hands of the US army..

    Do you get your news from the Communist Party USA's website or are you just completely ignorant of the statistics? According to Iraq Body Count it is just over 41,000 dead, and tes of thousands are at the hands of insurgents and sectarian militias.

    George Bush is so a-fing-mazingly bad at leadership. The murderous Muslims are attempting to implement their world-wide Calipahte and all Bush talks about are the nuances of the "war" in Iraq.

    George, nuance is for Democrats. Clerk-auditor, can't see beyond check boxes on a form, Democrats. Unable to see the big-picture Democrats.

    Get your head out of your butt, George, and tell us what needs to be done to defeat the animal Muslims in Iraq, Iran and elsewhere lest we all get our heads chopped off in the name of Allah!!

    Bush isn't interested in winning wars but he's very interested in starting them

    the more bombs that get dropped the more bombs have to be purchased from companies that the Carlyle Group invests in... the more wars get waged, the more open ended Halliburton contracts get handed out so that Bush's buddies can put an extra wing on the mansion

    this isn't about national security - it never was...

    it's alot more about perpetuating the obsolete military industrial complex and perpetuating dangerous reliance upon obsolete petro-chemical energy sources.

    there are other ways to wage war - and other ways to power our economy - but Bush isn't interested in change or in improvement - he is interested in making sure everyone makes money

    call me crazy but the proof is out there we aren't waging war with our infantry and artillery these same men are babysitting and painting mailboxes

    if people weren't dying every day it would be a joke

    And you somehow are interested in winning wars by supporting an immidiate withdrawal from Iraq? How double standards never fail to creep up to those who are guilty of using them never ceases to amaze me.

    the more bombs that get dropped the more bombs have to be purchased from companies that the Carlyle Group invests in... the more wars get waged, the more open ended Halliburton contracts get handed out so that Bush's buddies can put an extra wing on the mansion

    Halliburton has been around a lot longer than the War in Iraq and the Bush Administration, here's a peice of information for you, they are one of the top ten largest defense contractors in the world. The war isn't being fought from the air much anymore, with the occasional gunship strikes sufficing for our low-tech enemies, so your bomb theory of continued profits is sinking. The only thing that is going on is wartime profiteering off of the increased prices of energy.

    it's alot more about perpetuating the obsolete military industrial complex and perpetuating dangerous reliance upon obsolete petro-chemical energy sources.

    We wouldn't be as dependant on Middle Eastern nations for oil if we drilled for it in the Alaska reserves, now I'm trying to think, what party was it that is largely hindering us from tapping massive reserves of oil? Ah yes the Democrats, where the spider caribou and barren wasteland is more important than the American taxpayer.

    there are other ways to wage war - and other ways to power our economy - but Bush isn't interested in change or in improvement - he is interested in making sure everyone makes money

    Listen to your last sentence and please, think about what you are saying.

    call me crazy but the proof is out there we aren't waging war with our infantry and artillery these same men are babysitting and painting mailboxes

    if people weren't dying every day it would be a joke


    What?

    Rosenthal cited that number from an anti-war professor, and was put into serious question by many organizations, including the Washington Post and Human Rights Watch.

    "Previous independent estimates of civilian deaths in Iraq were far lower, never exceeding 16,000. Other experts immediately challenged the new estimate, saying the small number of documented deaths upon which it was based make the conclusions suspect. 'The methods that they used are certainly prone to inflation due to overcounting,' said Marc E. Garlasco, senior military analyst for Human Rights Watch, which investigated the number of civilian deaths that occurred during the invasion. 'These numbers seem to be inflated.'"
