Quotes of the Morning: Five Year Plans


“Some of the debate really centers around the fact that people don’t believe Iraq can be free; that if you’re Muslim, or perhaps brown-skinned, you can’t be self-governing or free. I’d strongly disagree with that.
I reject that. Because I believe that freedom is the deepest need of every human soul, and if given a chance, the Iraqi people will be not only self-governing, but a stable and free society.”
-George ‘Dubya’ Bush, April 13, 2004

“Heck yes.. Give the Iraqis a chance and they will form a self-governing stable and free society. Everyone can be self-governing and free.”
-Skippy


“In some democracies, some ethnic or religious groups are unable or unwilling to grasp the benefits of freedom otherwise available in the society.”
-National Security Council, “Strategy for Winning the War on Terror”, September 2006

“…Except of course if they can’t. Dang, I was hoping for some type of Iraqi style democracy someday, or else we’ll never be able to leave Iraq.”
-SKippy


“The longer term victories come when democracy, Iraqi style democracy, Lebanese style democracy, a Palestinian democracy, exist, take root and are capable of helping kind of … defeat the … systems of government that created resentment and hopelessness which enables people to create suiciders, and that is the long term struggle.”
-George ‘Dubya’ Bush, September 7, 2006

“Hmm.. Iraqi style democracy hasn’t been doing too well so far, and Lebanese style democracy (with its election of terrorist-linked organizations) is part of the reason that another democracy (Israel) invaded. So far our ‘long term’ objectives don’t seem to be doing too well.”
-Skippy


“The short term objective is to understand the stakes in this war against extremists.”
-George ‘Dubya’ Bush, September 7, 2006

“We have now been involved in the ‘War on Terror’ for five years. Shouldn’t we at least understand the stakes by now?”
-Skippy
