Thread Name: BS: Popular Views of the Bush Administration
Subject: RE: BS: Popular Views of the Bush Administration
The quote is from JFK's SOU address.

What was the "secret war" that was witheld from the Congress?

And are you asserting that such an act in the past parallels and justifies Bush's today?

I had an ancestor who went forth under the leadership of a King, who used religion as a pretext to try and break open some trade channels that went through the Middle East. In the course of his duty my ancestor slew men and women by the sword, pillaged and stole, and spilled innocent blood all the way from Macedonia to Mecca.

So tell me, wise Old Guy....would I then be justified in taking up my sword and slaying people in order to establish some sort of trade channel? Or would I be choosing a barbaric relic for a precedent?

In short, WTF does JFK's conduct have to do with this? Do you think it somehow exonerates your much beloved Leader for crimes against humanity?
