American Culpability

Well that didn't take long.

Derrick Z. Jackson,
writing in the Boston Globe, holds the United States of America accountable for the terrorist actions in London yesterday. Not in a tinfoil hat kind of way, but morally responsible.
We have rightfully mourned the loss of nearly 3,000 people on 9/11. We have begun mourning the loss of about 40 people in London. We have mourned the loss of 1,751 US soldiers, who, bless them, were following orders of their commander in chief. But to this day, there has been no major acknowledgement, let alone apology, by Bush or Blair for the massive amounts of carnage we created in a war waged over what turned out to be a lie, the nonexistent weapons of mass destruction.

These innocents never existed, either in Iraq or Afghanistan. . . .

The United States waged its own war of propaganda by refusing to conduct a legitimate, authoritative, honest accounting of the deaths of innocent civilians.
It may surprise you to hear that I agree with Jackson. We are guilty for this recent carnage. Oh not because of any Iraqi civilians killed; the fact that Jackson equates deliberate murder of thousands with a few accidental civilian deaths shows his TOTAL LACK of any moral compass.

We are guilty because we have not fought this war to win. We have let Liberals and Extremists tie our hands behind our backs. We have left our borders unguarded. We have failed to support President Bush against a MOUNTAIN OF LIES the Liberals have constructed to destroy him.

Simply enough, we have not fought the war to win and we have not correctly identified the real enemies of the United States.
