Do "Terrorists" Care Who Wins The Mid-Term Elections?
I have to say, this news story I heard the other day has to be the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard.
So according to Dick Cheney (The Vice President), the whole reason the insurgency has stepped up the violence in Iraq is because of the mid-term elections coming up in the United States.
You’ve gotta be kidding me. How stupid does someone have to be to believe that? What is Cheney trying to say? If you don’t vote Republican, you’re a terrorist? C’mon now.
And the reason I put the word “Terrorists” in quotes for the title of this post is because… well, if Canada invaded NY State and we decided we should kill them and take some of them hostage, would we be considered “Terrorists?” No. So why are they considered Terrorists? Defending their own country.
No matter what Canada’s reasons for invading us, in our view, they would be wrong for doing it. Why is it so hard for us to see that in most Iraqis’ eyes, we are wrong for invading them??? It’s got a lot to do with our egocentrism. Most Americans don’t realize that there’s a whole world out there that doesn’t involve us. It’s very true in the Iran situation. And that also speaks to American ignorance.
It’s really funny how easily influenced people are. We’re like puppets. Put something on TV and everyone believes it. If you don’t believe me, just look at what happened with Iraq. We were blindsided by all the lies about WMDs. We believed every single word that spewed out of Colin Powell and Condoleeza Rice’s lips. Not to mention the President.
So yeah, I’m sure the “Terrorists” care who wins the mid-term elections. They’re dealing with no electricity, sewage and massive unemployment. I’m sure they give a shit if Randy Kuhl (R) is defeated by Eric Massa (D) in NY. Do they even know what an election is?
