Who Needs Enemies?

...once again we see John Kerry is prepared to defend America, balance the budget, and fix the healthcare system while George W. Bush flounders and rationalizes. Everything is not okay and in fact getting worse, but one cannot tell by viewing conservative media. In Afghanistan they are holding their first-ever democratic elections that is true. It is also true that Afghanistan is the world's largest producer of opium. This opium produces heroin that is sold worldwide resulting in thousands of gruesome deaths, ruining thousands of lives, and costing millions of dollars in law enforcement. In Iraq, the security situation is complete chaos. Because of the incompetence of the Bush administration, whole regions of Iraq are controlled by terrorists. These are terrorists who came to Iraq because of George W. Bush--they weren't there before. As we find out that there were in fact no WMDs, which was the justification for the deaths of our American soldiers, one has to wonder why America has started this pre-emptive war. It has become all too clear that this war is simply about financial gain. War profiteers (Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, Rice, Powell) have lied to the world, ruined America's reputation, and made our security situation even worse than it was before 9/11. With the leadership we have in the White House right now, who needs enemies?
