Calling a spade a spade
I'm feeling opinionated today, and I had a realization. Not always a good combination, but always a vocal one.
Searching Google results in 57,500 hits for "global war on terror" and 72 for "global war on Al Qaeda".
Funny, I've never heard George W. Bush say the latter phrase, only the former. Yet many in the press and on the left seem to think it should be the latter.
They are wrong. It does not matter who terrorizes America because any terrorist should be stopped.
It does not matter that Al Qaeda struck us on 9-11, except to put them on the target list. It could have been Hezbollah that struck us, for all George W. Bush cares. The result, because of the President's correct decision, would have been the same: global war against a philosophy of slavery and all those who give agreement to it. In that perspective, it is not surprising that Iraq became the target of American Justice, since photos like the ones here and here indicate that Saddam was a terrorist. His loss of power (and perhaps his life, after a trial) results in less terror in the world.
Good for George.
