Who you calling a terrorist?
A trip down memory lane:
04/04/02 President George W. Bush:
Terror must be stopped. No nation can negotiate with terrorists. For there is no way to make peace with those whose only goal is death.
OK. With you so far...
6/25/05 President George W. Bush:
The military track of our strategy is to defeat the terrorists and continue helping Iraqis take greater responsibility for defending their freedom. The images we see on television are a grim reminder that the enemies of freedom in Iraq are ruthless killers with no regard for human life. The killers include members of Saddam Hussein's regime, criminal elements and foreign terrorists. The terrorists know that Iraq is a central front in the war on terror, because they know that a stable and democratic Iraq will deal a severe blow to their ideology of oppression and fear. The terrorists' objective is to break the will of America and of the Iraqi people before democracy can take root.
Right on, brother!
