Insurgents are targeting doctors in Iraq…and we’re the bad guys?

January 4th, 2006

Apparently, discount viagra medical doctors are the number one target of the insurgents in Iraq.

And yet we’re the bad guys.

We evicted a murderous dictator.

And yet we’re the bad guys.

We gave the oppressed a chance to govern themselves.

And yet we’re the bad guys.

We’re pouring our own money into a country that should be swimming in oil wealth.

And yet we’re the bad guys.

Our soldiers are giving their lives so strangers will have a chance to have lives of their own.

And yet we’re the bad guys.

Well, cialis canada pharm all I can say to the U.S. troops who are selflessly sacraficing their own lives, limbs, and liberty in the name of a better future for Iraqis and Americans alike is…

…not bad, guys.

    I agree. Very well put.

    Thank you.

    Who (besides the insurgents themselves) is calling our guys the bad guys?

    Come on, Scott.

    I will acknowledge that very few in America are condeming our troops directly. (Although Kerry’s slip about American troops terrorizing Iraqi children comes pretty close).

    But please don’t act like many, both here and abroad, don’t consider America in general and our government in particular to be very bad guys.

    For example: Harold Pinter condems us.

    Here’s a little love letter from Russia.

    I think it’s fair to say Hugo Chavez thinks we’re pretty much bad guys.

    Apparently 40% of Canadian teens think we’re evil

    And more recently 71% of Iraqis polled think we’re occupiers not liberators. (“Occupiers” sounds bad to me.)

    By the way, I think the U.S. is far from perfect

    And I wish we hadn’t invaded Iraq.

    But since we’re there, I’ll be damned if I’ll cede the moral high ground to scum bags who blow up civilians and purposefully target medical personnel to create chaos.

    Helping the Iraqis establish a real democracy and resist the filth that is trying to retake power in Iraq is the right thing to do, even if you think starting the war in the first place wasn’t.

    I was just trying to clarify whether you were calling us liberals traitors on the sly or not. Me, I don’t think anything bad about our troops. I do think there’s a whole lot of bad stuff emanating from the White House, but that’s another issue. (And those who would equate dissent with the president as an unpatriotic betrayal of our armed forces can kiss my liberal ass.)

    There’s a huge difference morally between what we are doing militarily and what the likes of these bombers are doing. No argument there.

    Heck, I’ve disagreed with every president we’ve had since I was old enough to care.

    (Except, I’ve always had an odd fondness for the first George Bush that I can’t really explain.)
