IRAQ WAR INCREASES WORLD TERRORISM BY 607%

From the Bad Eagle Journal

Can Waffling Warrior David Yeagley read the writing on the wall. No? Okay, I can spell it out then. The Iraq war, Bush’s oil war, the preemptive war of Bush’s aggression (i.e., Bush’s premeditated murder of civilians in other countries) is a colossal failure. Bush’s claim to make the world safer is complete crap. A new study concludes the world is considerably LESS safe than before Bush attacked Iraq. Again, Yeagley is licking at the hind quarters of an issue, siding again with the corporate warmongering elite and against the American people. Of course, the piano doctor never was a warrior, he only “plays” one on his web page. Well, read it and weep, little David. Terrorism has increased by 607% — BECAUSE of Bush.

Peter Bergen and Paul Cruickshank — “ ‘By fighting these terrorists in Iraq, Americans in uniform are defeating a direct threat to the American people.’ So said President Bush on November 30, 2005, refining his earlier call to ‘bring them on.’ ... The president’s argument conveyed two important assumptions: first, that the threat of jihadist terrorism to U.S. interests would have been greater without the war in Iraq, and second, that the war is reducing the overall global pool of terrorists. However, the White House has never cited any evidence for either of these assumptions... The administration’s own National Intelligence Estimate ... states that "the Iraq War has become the ‘cause celebre’ for jihadists ... and is shaping a new generation of terrorist leaders and operatives.’ ... we have undertaken what we believe to be the first such study, using information from the world’s premier database on global terrorism.”
