The Republican meme, "We need to fight the terrorists over there so we don't have to fight them here", I think has been thoroughly discredited at this point. The idea is just ridiculous on it's face, I mean the terrorists can walk and chew gum at the same time ok? But the point I want to make (and I don't know that I'm the first to make it, but it should be made and repeated) is that not only are we fighting the terrorists over here while we're ostensibly fighting them 'over there', but in this fight (in Iraq) we're using our troops as sacrificial lambs awaiting an imminent eradication.

Since we know terrorists were not active in Iraq prior to the invasion of the country, we can only say that our troops were and are being used as bait to lure terrorists to Iraq, so the government can 'legitimately' say that they are fighting them. This is an inexusable and unjustifiable use of our troops (not to mention all the dead innocent Iraqi civilians), and this will truly be one of the darkest marks on George W. Bush's historical record when his disastrous, pernicious presidency is entered into official history. Even the one area Bush has trumpeted as the zenith of his presidency, shows itself, after the mildest of scrutiny, to be another one in the seemingly endless line of nadirs.
