Bush back to his best

He lied for two years, they voted him back to power (never mind Ohio and the uncounted votes), and now he is back with the same old lie - the BIG one.
We went to war because we were attacked, and we are at war today because there are still people out there who want to harm our country and hurt our citizens,........ I am confident that Iraqis will continue to defy the sceptics as they build a new Iraq that represents the diversity of their nation and assumes greater responsibility for their own security, and when they do, our troops can come home with the honour they have earned.

Yeah, they can come home with the honor they have earned, not to mention the blood of thousands of Iraqis - soldiers and civilians in their hands.
This must be the 521st time Bush has first lied, then kept quiet, only to resurface with the lie again. This is one notch up above our BJP's famous flip-flops.
Are the majority of Americans dumb enough to believe this even though no WMD was found in Iraq, Osama Bin Laden was never connected to Iraq in any way and the the bomb-blasts which rock Iraq everyday is due to the invasion?
One of my school-mates is working in the U.S after completing his masters there. We were chatting in the messenger one day last November. Somehow the topic of the elections came up, he was vehemently in support of Bush and particularly his Iraqi invasion. In fact, these were the very words he used, "He's doing the right thing. We should bomb the Muslim m**** f****** out of the world". When i gently reminded him that Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11, his reaction baffled me. It was as though he wasn't ready to believe it, inspite of the facts glaring at his face, and more than anything he didn't care. Well, that's an Indian talking. Imagine the "patriotic" Americans! Gives me the creeps.


Well, i still haven't been able to get hold of a pen-drive to copy some stuff from my home PC. Still waiting for my transfer to Chennai. Still waiting for the money locked in some oblivion between Standard Chartered and Citibank that should have been sitting in my account one month back.
