I was listening to someone support the invasion of Iraq using the argument that we are at war with Islamic fascism and it is better to fight â€œthemâ€ over there than over here. OK, in a way I understand his notion about fighting fascism and I can even buy the argument of fighting them over there, whoever â€œtheyâ€ are. But once again the non sequitur connection between Islamic fascism and the secular non-Islamic state of Iraq was used to back support for the lies of the Bush administration.
When you listen to the few people who can actually explain their reasons for supporting Bush & his PNAC polices you will hear a very powerful set of arguments that usually have nothing to do with the issue. Consider the 9/11 justification for invading Iraq. We invaded what was perhaps the only nation in the region that was a natural and actual enemy of the legendary boogie man we know as Osama Bin Laden yet we hear 9/11 used as justification of the invasion.
The list is endless and deserves a chapter or so to cover in depth but suffice to say I have not heard many logical arguments used by people expressing their support for Bush/PNAC. Then again most people who support Bush/PNAC donâ€™t seem to have any reasons for supporting what they do. At least they can not share that information when asked. It is too bad that the few who do share their views donâ€™t make any sense and they donâ€™t even realize it.
We live in a nation of people who will tell you that their favorite number is seven and when you ask them why they will look you square in the eye and tell you that it is because they like even numbers. They don’t even blink.Â How scary has this nation become?
