KSM whiners are whacked....



I can't believe all this KSM crap! Does anyone really care what they did to this guy? Any one of the acts that he has claimed responsibility for would be grounds for using (with a clear conscience) "all means necessary" to protect innocent lives. Admittedly, it's a little scary to have this mentality prevail in the U.S. , but I think it is justifiable considering the nature of this conflict. You can debate both sides of the politics, but the reality is this deadly enemy has no plans to go away quietly. I wouldn't care if they locked him in a room and made him listen to an endless loop of Sean Hannity and Bill O'reilly. We're at war now whether you agree with how we got there or not. The politicians are seizing this opportunity to further divide and conquer this country. We are consumed by the war, the loss of lives and the quest for moral ground. The whole time the rich people on both sides of the aisle are raking in record profits, seemingly behind our backs, yet right in front of our eyes.

I also question the unmistakable "Captain Obvious" political move the Bush administration attempted to deploy this week. Has anyone been lulled into believing that breaking of KSM story at this time is nothing more than an attempt to sway the Congressional vote on the war budget. "Look how bad this guy is! We're definitely going to need more money...". I think the timing is clearly designed to counter the Democrats pull-out plan and shame on them for being so transparent. I for one feel my intelligence has been insulted. Karl Rove would have executed that maneuver in a much slicker manner...

We can disagree as long as we remember to keep the bigger picture in perspective. We are now in position that we have to physically defend our country and our way of life. We have historically been loathe to enter into global conflicts and slow to react. Yet this time we touched off a powder keg that we will have to live with for a long time. I think that a reasonable person could presume we will be there for the long haul. That will mean many more casualties on all sides. So if we have to waterboard a scumbag like KSM to fight this war and save some lives, I say go ahead.
