War on Terror: It's Because of Them

by ornery elephant

In a war weary America, you can hear the moonbatters rant about conspiracies that put the U.S. in the Iraq War, but even in the Heartland of America, at the local diner with red and white checked tablecloth draped booths, you’ll hear some people ask, “Why are we in this mess?”

Well, today…right here, I’d like to propose that we are there in Iraq and we are in Afghanistan and we are in Pakistan because of “them.” Yes, because of them.


“Because the first thing that I really wanted to do after, not even leaving Pakistan because I also met with President Musharraf, is tell the world you know these people, these handful of people I was telling you about is fighting the war on behalf of all of us, because this is, you know, I think an international war - international network of terrorists - with nothing. So I did that. “
Mariane Pearl, wife of executed journalist Daniel Pearl

“I as a parent turn to the parents and ask them to guard their children, and certainly this request is especially meant for parents living in the West Bank."
Noam Shalit, father of kidnapped Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit

  2. OE,
    Yes Them, just like damn ants in the 1950s movie.

  3. They don't have to piss off all of the Americans...

    Just the ones who do the work and protect the country.

    You know, the ones who act like adults.
