Thread Name: BS: Maliki doesn't want more U.S. troops
Subject: RE: BS: Maliki doesn't want more U.S. troops
Dickey, love, I never believed there was a connection, but then I'm not American and therefore haven't the disadvantages that those 70 per cent clearly have.
One presumes that that 70 per cent includes that majority of Americans who don't have a passport, who only watch domestic news and who receive the majority of their opinions from those who shout loudest. One presumes that it also probably includes those who believe in the literal truth of the Old Testament and sundry other crackpot ideas.
And it certainly would include those who look upon the 'commander in chief' as some sort of infallible being, incapable of wrongdoing (unless, of course, he's a pinko faggot Democract!) and therefore whose every twist and insinuation is to be believed.
What I'm struggling to understand, Dickey, is whether or not your're stating that such claims have a legitimacy because these poor benighted folk believe them, notwithstanding Bush and Cheney's express comments that the invasion of Iraq had nothing to do with 9-11 ;-) . Which, of course, is true in one sense, as it was on the cards before the actions of the hijackers gave it a spurious justification. Or are you saying that seven out of 10 of your countrymen are stupid? Stupid enough to vote Repuiblican?
