War = Freedom

I've never quite gotten this logic. The whole idea that by sending soldiers to
countries across the war, you're gaining freedom. Why?
As far as I know, other than the Taliban, no one has threatened America lately.
As for the whole freedom thing, who'se are we talking about?
How does a soldier fighting another countries war solidify your freedom?
If George W. really went to Iraq to free the people, shouldn't he be freeing other countries too?
What happened to the WMD, anyway? They seemed to be conviently forgotten when none showed up.
Maybe it's just me, but I feel like America is finding any excuse to be at war.
Doesn't matter who, it has to be someone.
Bush has to be protecting something, be it freedom or tradition.
How does homosexual marriage threaten people anyway?
As far as I know, every time we kiss a baby doesn't die.
It probably isn't my place to say, as I'm a Canadian, but that's how I feel about it.
Anyone care to explain the logic to me?

As a citizen of the good ole' USA, I can say that we are a confused country. Always anxious to battle something. However, I do happen to be fond of the country itself, excluding politics.

It's all politics and economics. Freedom rarely enters the equation.

Eff Bush

Bush didn't go there expecting to liberate people, he went there looking for oil and a surge of public support for him. What does he have to show for it? A battered country (two, actually) and "I expected to find weapons."

How does it feel to know that the so-called "Leader of the Free World" attacked another country on false accusations?
