BACKGROUND ARCHIVE


I bet that some time in your life, you've done a favor for somebody and suffered because of it. Well, that's what's happening to the USA right now. We did a favor for the world by removing a brutal dictator and giving millions of people a chance for freedom in Iraq (search). And now we're paying a huge price.

Take a look at these Iraqi morons, celebrating the murders of 13 people, an American, eight Iraqis and four others. A terrorist bomb killed those poor souls. And the disgusting people you are looking at in Baghdad think it's just great.

Now, that kind of image is tough to take, because even though I believe most Iraqis are decent people, there are far too many bad Iraqis. And America's losing fine soldiers trying to bring freedom to that country.

There's no question that we are the good guys in Iraq, just as we were in South Vietnam, Korea, and during World War II. All of those conflicts were fought to keep people free. But many ignorant people think we're the bad guys.

The truth is that waging aggressive war against terrorism is a must. We have to do it. Maybe Iraq is the wrong battlefield, but our intentions there are honorable.

Saddam was a terrorist and a mass murderer. There's no question about that. While the Bush administration was embarrassingly wrong about WMDs, and that hurt the moral clarity of the war, captured Iraqi documents are now proving that Saddam did indeed have ties to Al Qaeda and bin Laden.


Just today, the war criminal Abu al-Zarqawi, an Al Qaeda leader, claimed responsibility for killing the 13 human beings you saw when they died yesterday in Iraq. Zarqawi fled to Iraq after he was wounded in Afghanistan and was given safe harbor and medical treatment by Saddam.

So somebody alert Al Gore to that connection. The perception that America is somehow the villain in Iraq comes from America's enemies abroad, and that includes France, and from anti-Bush partisans here in the USA. Certainly Abu Ghraib was horrendous, but those soldiers don't represent this country. They committed crimes and they'll pay for those crimes.

And any government official or military brass that aided those crimes should also be punished.

Talking Points is angry that so many people abroad simply will not unite to fight terrorism and evil, and that millions of Americans don't understand the country's at war. And it has to be. Sticking your head in the proverbial sand, hoping you won't be harmed by terrorists is not going to cut it anymore. We're fighting for our lives here. How we fight is, of course, a legitimate debate, but portraying America as the bad guy is simply dangerous, dishonest and pathetic.

And that's The Memo.

The Most Ridiculous Item of the Day

Well, you guys made me do it, by voting to have Michael Moore (search) on “The Factor,” I had to go see his movie last night.

It started 40 minutes late so I had to leave after an hour, I didn't see the whole thing, but I saw most of. The film is pretty much what you would expect, President Bush and his administration are a satanic cult and we live in a police state. The movie was a little slow for me, fairly predictable.

As I was leaving I ran into Moore in the lobby. He told me he was coming on “The Factor.” We will see. Ridiculous? We will see.

I had to take my car into the dealership for some warranty work early this morning before work and wound up watching the Today Show which is something I NEVER watch because I'm not a fan of Katie Couric. I was in the waiting room, waiting for the van that would take me to work. Matt Lauer interviewed Moore, the egotistical imbecile, about the prison footage that Moore supposedly has. Moore stated that it was shot by an imbedded reporter who is half Swedish, half Iraqi. He said that he decided to show the footage because he felt it was the right thing to do for the integrity of the film. I was trying to deal with my car and all of the hubbub so I was a bit distracted but I can say this. Moore came across as a man who has absolutely NO understanding of reality. He kept talking about the film and about what should be included so that it works. That's what a FILMMAKER does, not a documentarian. A filmmaker makes things work so that the film is enjoyable. A true documentarian doesn't "make things work". He/she films reality and that's it. Moore is a manipulator and he stated so today on "Today".

Michael Moore is a traitor to this country in my opinion. He has absolutely NO knowledge about our intelligence operations, just as NONE of us do, and yet he purports to be the expert. For some reason, we're supposed to go along with his God-syndrome and believe him completely. Thanks but no thanks. I'd rather go along with my decision about the man. He's an idiot and unfortunately, will probably always be an idiot.

I'm sorry, CG, but I cannot go along with your assessment of this man. Idiots have more sense and they also have more character! Moore is a yellow bellied, lily livered foo....errrr...CAT!

I understand your point but my cat doesn't! LOL My buddy has sense, love and he just looked at me with the most indignant look when I read your post to him! LOL Michael Moore needs a wake-up call and a reality check. He doesn't have a clue about reality.

Awesome post G! Made me laugh and my cat react. I love it!

Thank you!

Sorry bout the insulted cat. I started to call him a fool but, then, I heard my mamma's voice saying "NEVER call anyone a fool!" so I just was struggling when "cat" popped into my head. It's really difficult to compare Moore to anything without insulting the comparee.

Oh, wait! I got it! He's a yellow bellied, lily livered SNAKE! Snakes can't be insulted, ya know!

Oh, durn! Now, MsFrizz is gonna be after me!

Oh, well, I'll just have to deal with it!
