"In the days ahead we must not consider it unpatriotic to raise certain basic questions about our national character. We must begin to ask, 'Why are there forty million poor people in a nation overflowing with such unbelievable affluence? Why has our nation placed itself in the position of being God's military agent on earth? Why have we substituted the arrogant undertaking of policing the whole world for the high task of putting our own house in order?'"
--- Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Many say we should blindly follow president-"elect" Bush Jr. and that questioning him is "unpatriotic", dissenting against his actions in Iraq is "anti-American", and that the protests taking place against the war "lowers morale" in U.S. troops.
I beg to differ. If we don't stand up and demand that Congress & the United Nations decide this , instead of one man taking unilateral action, then the world could be over as we know it. A "war on terror" is an endless war, since terrorism is widespread throughout the globe.
-_==THE REAL DEBATE==_-
BUSH: Sadam needs to disarm! He's had weapons of mass destruction for 11 years! It's about time!
FRANCE: If he's had them for that long, then why hasn't he attacked by now?
RUMSFIELD: Because they won't reach, but North Korea's surely can!
BLAIR: George, what proof do you have that Sadam had weapons of mass destruction? My people aren't convinced.
BUSH: We kept the receipts. But that's not the point. We have a suspicion that Russia may have been trading night-vision goggles with them!
FRANCE: I find George's case a bit compelling. Could he be in this for oil?
BUSH: That's it! We're callin' them "freedom" fries and "freedom" toast, and making it "freedom" kissing from this point on! You'll learn what happens to those who are anti-American!
[INCOMING PHONE CALL]
SADDAM: Hey, I thought it was a cool idea for the two of us to duke it out on network television. Too bad you weren't man enough to go with the deal, George!
BUSH: That's it! He has until mid-March. No, 48 hours! He better not burn those oil wells, I tell ya!
FRANCE: See, I knew something was up. Oh, and George. French fries are from Belgium. See where you get with a 2.0 GPA earned through a legacy opportunity at Yale?
