Mohammed's Message to Cindy

by: BonnieBlueFlag

It has been a little while since I have checked in at the "Iraq The Model" Blog, but I accidentally found myself there today, reading a very moving letter to Cindy Sheehan.

I must say that my own emotions are on a roller coaster ride daily, as we try to do what is right in Iraq, without losing our own soul in the process.

Today's "A Message to Cindy Sheehan" has served to renew my own spirit and conviction, that President Bush must remain steady in his resolve. He must not be swayed by Cindy Sheehan and her fellow demonstrators. We cannot withdraw our troops based on the ill advised whims of this woman.

And those who are using Cindy Sheehan as a pawn in this deadly game they are playing, are no less dishonorable, no less brutal and cruel to her, than the Iraqi terrorists who murdered her son, Casey.

As a very young child, I learned -- from a Roy Rogers program -- the phrase "two wrongs don't make a right."
As in most things, Roy was correct.
Jihadists have committed evil acts.
The September 11 terrorists-murderers commited evil acts.
Saddam Hussein committed evil acts.
The Clinton administration committed evil acts.
The first Bush administration committed evil acts.
Not one of those above obviously true statements justifies the invasion of Iraq.
Not one.
Knee-jerk Bush supporters keep bending with the wind and every time the Bush administration offers another, different, excuse for the invasion, the knee-jerks obediently, Pavlovianly nod in agreement.
We expect that.
But Aussiegirl and most -- though not all -- of her readers and commenters are NOT knee-jerks, and I cannot for the life of me understand why you all continue giving support to what should be recognized as an evil act of aggression.
Will someone explain?
P.S. I don't know who Cindy Sheehan is but I'll try to go read the link.
P.P.S. Is there such a word as "Pavlovianly"?

When President Bush sent troops to Iraq, millions of people were liberated from one of the nastiest dictators around. And as bad as Saddam was, his sons had the potential for being even worse. While the previous poster may not agree with what the President did by sending troops to foreign shores, America has not been attacked by terrorists in almost four years. These evil people will stop at nothing to destroy ANYONE (Jew, Christian, people with NO religion, and even other Muslims!) who does not agree with their beliefs. They've shown this by attacking Muslims in other countries, simply because these Muslims didn't follow the narrow path set out by the terrorists. The journalist who was killed this past week was murdered because he was going to marry a Muslim woman. I hate to call these terrorists "people", but they will stop at nothing to spew their hate filled brand of religion. As to the reasons for going into Iraq changing with the wind, there were so many reasons FOR going into the country it was difficult to pick just one. There are many blogs that have covered all of this and said it far better than I'm able to, but terrorism needs to be stamped out, the sooner the better, the more thoroughly the safer for all of us living in the world today. When you look at the countries that have experienced evil at the hands of the jihadists (America, London, Spain, Egypt, Philipines, Russia, etc.) it really blows my mind that any sane person could not be standing and applauding what President Bush and PM Blair are doing to try & protect us. As for two wrongs not making a right, the only "wrong thing" the President did was to wait too long to go into Iraq, thereby giving Saddam and his henchment the time to move the WMD's that the French, the Russians, Germany, GB, and the UN said where there. Perhaps some special forces group should go play in the sand in Syria and just see what they can find. Thank goodness GWB was CIC to guide us through the aftermath of 9/11.

Our glorious and brave President has chosen wisely to ignore the traitorious bable of that woman Cindy Sheehan. Sheehan has disgraced herself as a mother by criticizing our President who leads America in the righteous fight against Terrorism worldwide. Our President knows that we must stay in Iraq no matter what the cost, no what matter what the casualities. We must stay in Iraq as long as it takes. We as Americans must be willing to give our sons and daughters for this noble and worthy cause. Cindy Sheehan is a defeatist and traitor. May she live in infamy.

NO, repeat, NO rational and honest person now believes, if ever they did, that Saddam Hussein had anything to do with the September 11 attacks.
Yes, Saddam is and was rotten.
So are hundreds of other politicians around the world, many of whom are actual threats and dangers to the United States.
Neither Saddam Hussein nor Iraq ever was.
So, again, WHY did the Bush administration invade Iraq?
The above is not an answer.

Dear Michael,

Well, there's your problem . . . While you were watching good ole Roy and Dale, Trigger and Buttermilk, Pat and Nelly Belle, I was watching the Lone Ranger.

The Lone Ranger didn't believe that two wrongs would make a right either, but he always carried a "silver bullet" for the guy that couldn't be reasoned with.

If ever there was a guy that couldn't be reasoned with, it was Saddam Hussein!

Miss Piano Girl has already given you all of the reasons that I would have brought up, and then some. But, I do hope you will find the time to read the "Message to Cindy Sheehan" at the link I posted above.

By the way, I got to meet Roy and Dale at a wedding I attended years ago in California. They were very nice people, and you would have loved his fancy cowboy boots.

Bonnie Blue,
I wrote "The Origins of CAIR" today. Stop by if you can.

Saddam may not have "signed on the dotted line" for the 9/11 attacks on this country, but we now know from intelligence gathered from captured Iraqis who were closest to Saddam (remember the deck of cards with the 54 "most wanted" in Iraq?) that members of Al Qaeda had free passage into and out of Iraq, including Bin Laden. These terrorists met with officials of the highest rank of Iraqi government, did training there, and received aid and comfort (and possibly financial assistance) as they plotted to kill as many Americans as they possibly could. Next to seeing Saddam personally sign a declaration, this is about as close as you can get. There are many of us who are honest, rational, thinking people who don't doubt for a moment that Saddam was in the background, dancing in the street, cheering the 19 who changed life for us forever.

In addition to Piano Girl's comments of today; it isn't very often that everyone is reminded, that the surrender agreement "signed" by Saddam Hussein after the first Gulf War included the "No Fly Zone." Hussein honored his signed agreement, by shooting almost daily at our military airplanes, that were forced to patrol that "No Fly Zone."
