Subject: RE: BS: Bush's *Big Stick* Foriegn Policy...
What's wrong with all that? Heh! It's ridiculously naive, and it has nothing to do with anything that major powers actually fight for.

They don't fight for anyone's freedom.

The only people who ever truly fight for freedom are a few revolutionaries who take on the major powers of their
Emiliano Zapata in Mexico in the early 1900's, like Simon Bolivar, like Fidel Castro when he was a young man fighting the Batista regime in the 1950's, like George Washington and his men when they fought the British Empire, people like that.

Major established national powers do NOT fight for freedom. They fight for dominance and control of markets and resources, and political control of strategic regions.

All that stuff Bush blathers on about is pure propaganda designed to fool people who are stupid enough to believe it. If he believes it himself, then he is as naive as the people who support him, and he's just a tool of the major interests who financed his campaigns and got him into office.

He also IS a terrorist himself. But I'm sure he's quite unaware of it, not being on the receiving end of the terrorism he sponsors.
