pinions of buddy don: dead is dead, bof here n thar

one thang i ment to mentchun yesterdy whenever i wuz ritin bout how we are the ones stuck in the flypaper of iraq, not the terrists, wuz this thang bout fitin em over thar so we dont have to fite em here. heres a bit of a articull name of The War's Realist writ by ej dionne jr:
"We're fighting the enemy in Iraq and Afghanistan and across the world so we do not have to face them here at home."

That's what President Bush said in his speech yesterday at the FBI Academy in Quantico. After the attacks on Britain, our closest ally in the war on terrorism, it is an astonishing thing to say. "It's a very insensitive statement with regard to the British," said Sen. Carl Levin (D-Mich.). "Tony Blair must absolutely have blanched when he heard that."

What does Bush's statement mean? Appearing on "Fox News Sunday," Fran Townsend, the president's homeland security adviser, said that the war in Iraq attracts terrorists "where we have a fighting military and a coalition that can take them on and not have the sort of civilian casualties that you saw in London."

Huh? If British troops fighting in Iraq did not stop the terrorists from striking London, then what is the logic for believing that American troops fighting in Iraq will stop terrorists from striking our country again? Intelligence reports -- and Townsend's own words -- suggest that Iraq has become a terrorist breeding ground since the American invasion. How, exactly, has that made us safer?
as ye must know by now, upwards of 50 folks in london lost thar lives in that blast.

jes yesterdy, we read this headline: 34 killed in suicide attacks. twuz in baghad, over thar, whar we have our military mite n all ... whar mr bush lacks to say we are fitin em on thar centrull frunt. nevermind how the cia sez were jes manufackturin more terrists ... ignore that articull in salon (from Der Spiegel) name of Radical Islam's rising war on Europe; EU investigators say that terrorists operate in small, flexible groups, making it almost impossible to catch them -- and that the Iraq war has made their task infinitely harder.

ignore the fack that bali n madrid n turkey n london aint innywhar near that centrull frunt of the global war on terr that mr bush lacks to talk bout.

fergit all that.

heres my questchuns: why is it more ackceptabull fer them innocent folks in iraq that we are liberatin n givin democrussy n all -- why is it more ackceptabull fer them to die in attacks everday than tiz fer innybidy else?

dont thar lives matter?

dont the feelins of thar parents n children n bruthers n sisters n friends matter?

dont they greeve?

long fer vengeance?

or is it jes a problem ifn it happens to folks that aint stuck in iraq, in whut mr bush has deecided to call the centrull frunt in the global war on terror?

are they sumhow lessern us? more wurthy of death?

if so, why? aint all gods children equal? whut ever happend to luvin yer naybor as yerself?
