"Noble Cause" in Iraq?
We keep hearing from the Bush administration and loyal sycophant neo-cons that American soldiers are fighting for a "noble cause" in Iraq. However, we never hear these people signing up to go and fight in Iraq for this "noble cause."
What was is the "noble cause?" Spreading democracy? Well, you can not force democracy onto people and it appears in Iraq that their constitution is going to curb women's rights. Also, Islam will play a major role in the structure of this government. Now, is that really "freedom on the march" as President Bush constantly repeats??
Of course not.
Some people claim the "noble cause" being defending America. How in the holy FUCK was Iraq EVER a threat to America. I can not believe that people are still believing and repeating this drivel. Especially now that we have not found any WMD stock piles attributed to Saddam Hussein!! There were NO CONNECTIONS between Saddam and Osama bin Laden and YET people STILL say that we had to go into Iraq because of 9/11!!! Now these are the same people who say that we have to fight in Iraq because of all the terrorists there now. Well, sheeple these terrorists didn't pour into Iraq until Bush bombed the fuck out of the country and created a huge power vacuum that was filled by the terrorists. So, it should appear obvious to anyone with even a sliver of brain that the invasion has created more terrorists and dangers for Americans then before the invasion. These people are like ostriches who love to bury their head in the sand.
They are sending men and women back to Iraq who are in their 30's and 40's so i'm sure they would be able to make the cut for the military.
Certainly the Bush twins could go over there and help out daddy's "noble cause" in some capacity.
Take for example ex-NFL player Pat Tillman who dropped out of a very successful and lucrative football career to fight in Iraq. There are plenty of flag waving, chest beating, uber-patriotic young men and women who find themselves in the same position as Tillman who could and should volunteer to fight as Tillman did.
If they believe that Iraq is a "noble cause" then they should be volunteering in mass numbers.
Noble cause my ass.
