Turf War
In lieu of a regular post this morning, I present an e-mail from a friend, received early this morning, in its entirety:

From http://www.nytimes.com/2004/04/29/politics/29POLL.html

Violet Adams, 66, of Delta, Colo., who identified herself as a Republican, said she thought the United States would have to maintain a presence in the Middle East for a decade as part of the broader effort to confront Islamic terrorism.

"We either take them in their territory, on their turf, and keep them there, or we let them scatter all over the world and start their little cells, and then we'll all be living like Israel," Ms. Adams said.

Thank you, Ms. Adams, for showing that you don't have a clue that "their little cells" had already spread all over the world long before 9/11, and that Bush's little Iraq venture has been a distraction from "taking them in their territory, on their turf." Ms. Adams, OUR turf is their turf. They are here, and in Europe, and Asia, and Central
America, and Africa. They weren't, however, in Iraq---not until our presence drew them there. Now it is innocent Iraqis who are living like Israel, or rather, like Palestine under Israeli occupation.

It is people like you, Ms. Adams, who are to blame for the fact that we have as our president an idiotic puppet with a messiah complex. You are the reason we should reconsider requiring IQ tests for voter registration.

Couldn't have said it better myself. And I won't be saying anything for a couple of days. Back posting again sometime Sunday night or Monday.
