    Default Bush: "Its not a civil war in Iraq, its pure Evil"

    CNN showed him saying this. Tell me this is not catering to religious Americans.

    Bush: "Its not a civil war in Iraq, its pure Evil. That is why we have to protect ourselves against it and stay on the offensive".

    He's been preaching the same sermon since 9-11.

    As Maslow taught us, security is one of the basic human needs, and if that is unsettled we tend not to look beyond. Well, Bush and his gang of political operatives figured out a long time ago that fanning the flames of fear (insecurity) is a good way to gain and hold power. Of course, it's not a new concept at all, but as Machevelli might have figured, it works.

    Why can't we call it what it is? A religious war started with American freedom?

    I sort of agree with Bush's quote.

    It may have escalated into a civil war, but it was orchestrated by violently twisted religious extremists who would love to do harm to America.

    This is a religious war about as much as the Branch Dividians were about religion.

    Give it a rest Ground. Al Sadr is one of the most powerful politicians in Iraq and he hates America. Maliki himself lived in Iran and led a terrorist unit in Syria that helped Hamas and Hezbolla as well as orchestration of terrorist activities in Iraq against Hussein's regime. Of course, your buddy Bush never mentions that.

    All of which has nothing to do with the nature of the war or the quote from my "buddy" Bush.

    Let me ask this question...why are people killing each other in Iraq?

    Can you please give some evidence for this wild accusation?

    Thanks, and,

    In 1980, the Saddam Hussein government sentenced al-Maliki to death for his activism in the Dawa party and thereafter, he lived in exile, first in Iran[4] and later in Syria. In Syria, he headed the party's Jihad Office, a branch responsible for directing activists and guerrillas fighting Saddam Hussein's regime from outside of Iraq.

    Mofaz announced Israel's response to the bombing after huddling with senior security commanders late Saturday in Tel Aviv. In a statement, Mofaz blamed Islamic Jihad and Syria, where the group is based.

    "The defense minister ruled that Israel sees Syria and the Islamic Jihad movement are those standing behind the murderous attack in Tel Aviv," a statement from Mofaz's office said.

    Israel has repeatedly demanded that Syria close the headquarters of Palestinian militant groups in Damascus and end its support for other militant organizations.

    Israeli security officials said there were no immediate plans to attack Syria. Instead, the country will launch a diplomatic effort in hopes of winning U.N. condemnation of Syria. In 2003, Israeli warplanes bombed an Islamic Jihad base in Syria in retaliation for a suicide bombing that killed 19 people at a restaurant.

    Syrian officials did not immediately comment.

    Israeli security officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the truce no longer applied to Islamic Jihad militants in the Palestinian territories, and said they may resume assassinations of the group's leaders.
