Sixth anniversary 

Given a choice between a world of nations controlled by corporations standing to lose profits from war between their client governments and a world in which nations went to war among one another willy-nilly, I'd in pick the corptocracy.

As far as that scenario provides, I'm in agreement with Bush's foreign policy. And I rather think Bush's War on Terror is driven at least in part by the contrast between those two choices.

However, those aren't the only two choices available and a military struggle between ideologies without territories is futile. By the administration's own admission "the terrorists won't stop with Iraq". Iraq is not an Iwo Jima no matter how much supporters of the war try to make it.

This is how you commemorate the sixth anniversary of 9-11? That day, war was declared AGAINST us, not the other way around!

I find it disgusting (but not surprising) that you politicize this day in this fashion.
Actually, bin Laden declared war against the US, Israel and Saudi Arabia in 1996. The declaration is quite interesting and informative.

As per your disgust, I am happy to be the object of your daily derision today, and am only sorry I could not further my politicization by doing so in NYC as the GOP did during their 2004 convention.
