No More Bush Bashing - Old Blog Post

I'm tired of all the President Bush bashing. I'm sick or it! I hate it! And I think those people who spend a majority of their time doing it, should take a look at their own personal lives before attempting to tell people how to run the country.

Perhaps they actually think they themselves are perfect and would do a better job than Bush... or maybe they believe they would have put a stop to that sick bastard Saddam in some other "politically correct" fashion.

I think that if these people spent even half the time on their own internal issues, they actually may be able to come close to being perfect. Doubtful... but maybe close.

When I hear people saying that they wish President Bush was dead... I get a knot in my stomach. Wishing another person was dead because they are a rapist or murderer is one thing... wishing a man dead because he isn't running the country in some other way is asinine.

And NO... I do not believe Bush is a murder because we went to war. That's ridiculous. If that's the answer a person is going to give to me then I would say that God himself is therefore a murderer. Right?

Didn't he open the sea to let Moses and his followers pass but then allow the waters to take the lives of the Egyptian soldiers?

Genesis Chapter 19 states...

19:24 Then the LORD rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven;19:25 And he overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground.

19:26 But his wife looked back from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt.

Is God a murderer? Did he not kill all the people living in the city? Did he not then kill Lot's wife for looking back?

Oh, good grief... someone is going to think I'm comparing Bush to God now! I would never compare anyone to God in such a way. My point is simply that death is a horrible thing, it's true; but sometimes it is a necessary evil that can turn into a something good in the end.

How many people did the war in Iraq actually SAVE? How many more people would have died if Saddam was allowed to continue to control that country? Does that even matter to people?

I hear people on the television and radio getting all pissed off at Bush because he caused us to go to war and innocent people on all sides had to die.

First of all... it isn't Bush who caused us to go to war. It was Saddam and his political and nightmarish ideals and practices. Second... it was not only Bush who made the decision to go to war. There were other countries involved in this situation.

France... now of course, wonders why America is giving them the cold shoulder. I wonder why?

And yes... innocent people died and yes... it's a tragedy. But how many more innocent women, children, grandparents and fathers had to die because of Saddam's rule? Were we to just wait around another 15 years until the next time he became more powerful?

We have not forgotten about Bin Laden... believe me, we will never forget about him. But Saddam was a strong supporter of Bin Laden... perhaps... maybe even his taskmaster.

Remove the head and the body is sure to die.

May we each take the moment necessary out of this day and any day we feel the need to remember those who have gone before us in defense of our freedoms. Without them... we would not be "here"... we would be in chains. ~Bug~
