NPR had an interview the other day that made a lot of sense to me. The Crusades are something the Muslim world has never forgotten. And a few months ago Bush declared a Crudsade against his axis of evil and evildoers (what a stupid term). The Muslim world has never forgotten the statement and we never noticed it. Jeeze. So to speak!

Don't get me wrong... its started and it would be a bigger mess if we were to pull out all of the sudden. Imagine the thousands killed by Saddam's fanatics for even thinking of embracing the US occupation. It would make 1991 look tame. It sounds like terror tactics (car bombs and such) are going to be the norm for resistance. It will happen here someday I expect but I am not worried about it. It will happen and I'll deal with it then.
I am so sick of the war coverage. The same blather over and over again. I quit watching any for today. Saddam needs to be removed but we sure screwed this up. Everyone in the world is pissed at us. This is good? Its going to take years to recover our credibility. We aren't the gentle giants of the world, we are the asshole Americans. Stomping around demanding and now taking. That is not what I want to be. Bush is going to be like his dad, a one-term republican President. By the time the election campains start next year, his name will be mud if not s#@t. Schools will be closing, the economy shot, hundreds of Marines dead and who knows what else screwed up. Crap.
