I would like to tell Hassan Al-Haifi that the recent article about US causalities in Iraq was excellent! Thank you for writing it.
Mr. Bush is not only a danger to the US but to the world. The problem is that a slight majority of Americans enjoy the killing. Recently it is stated that over 20,000 US troops from the invasion of Iraq have been wounded and treated in Germany. In addition, it is said that since the invasion, 100,000 more Iraqis died than normally would have. And the US has had over 1200 killed. But this won't be enough blood to satisfy the right-wing extremists in the US. The world can expect hundreds of thousands of deaths at the hand of the Butcher Bush in the next four years.
Mr. Bush's “religion” teaches him two things:
1) Power comes from the barrel of a gun.
2) He can hire half the poor to kill the other half.
In essence, there are great similarities between Bush and bin Laden. Both are fighting a religious war and the innocent will continue to suffer.
