Iraqi death toll

More than 1,300 killed over the past week in Iraq’s civil war. Of course, there’s not a word of this over at LGF and most of the other war-bloggers’ sites, where they’ve dutifully placed their heads deep and conveniently in the sand.

Small wonder Bush’s popularity now stands at a paltry 34 percent, the lowest ever. Will the media stop referring to him as “a popular president” now? (No, the probably won’t.)

Where the heck did the media refer to Bush as a popular president?

Here’s just one example, Sam.

How about this statistic:

Almost 90% [of US troops in Iraq] think war is retaliation for Saddam’s role in 9/11, most don’t blame Iraqi public for insurgent attacks

That’s it, I’m going to do three things: buy a boat, learn to deep sea fish, and get a Tokelauan passport. Time to get off this merry-go-round.

“Almost 90% [of US troops in Iraq] think war is retaliation for Saddam’s role in 9/11″

This is an example of some of the ignorance that I dispair at. SADAM HAD NO ROLE IN 9/11.

That’s right, Sadam was not aware of plans for 9/11, he did not support it, did not approve it, did not fund it. He had nothing to do with it.

99 percent of 9/11 was Saudi. It was funded, planned, organized and carried out mostly by Saudis.

This is just another example of the lies and falsehoods that the US media spreads, or fails to correct.

If you go to any other western country and ask about their intel, NONE of them have found any state level links betwen Iraq and 9/11.

In fact, Sadam was a secular leader who enforced secular values in his state. Alquida considered him to be a traitor to Islam and would have put him to death had they had the chance.
