  •  bush uses terror against Americans (4.00)
    The man's a never ending episode of Fear Factor.  "I'm preventing another 9/11" he says...but that's a lie.  He invokes 9/11 because it causes a visceral reaction in many Americans, and allows him to control public emotion and, subsequently, public opinion.  People acting on emotion don't think, they feel. And that's all he cares about, is controlling that general feeling...keep us insecure, and we'll go along with whatever he wants.  And it works. My own GOP family members use fear-based arguments when defending bush's actions...that and red herrings which I won't go into here.

    One thing I know is certain...bush is very, VERY lucky that we have not been attacked again since 9/11, because it is only the absence of attacks that supports his 'fear al Qaeda' strategy.  Should al qaeda decide to attack us again, bush's argument would go out the window and those few people gullible enough to believe him would begin to question his strategy...Honestly, I think Osama knows better than to attack again right now as bush is playing into his hands.

    •  Proving that you need not get your hands bloody (none)
      to become a terrorist.
      •  Terrorism is the use of fear (none)
        the "war on terror" is a lie, especially when it is that same terror we are supposedly fighting which is being used to control us.
