“TERRORIST STATE” August 17, 2006

Posted by wmmbb in Category to be ascribed.

George Walker Bush is the US president. The President of the United States has speech writers and advisers, and if he has the wit to use them a reservoir of human intelligence and experience, especially in matters relating to affairs in other countries, not least I suppose in the country that he ordered invaded and occupied. Given those conditions, I am still taken aback to read:

Leaving before we complete our mission would create a terrorist state in the heart of the Middle East, a country with huge oil reserves that the terrorist network would be willing to use to extract economic pain from those of us who believe in freedom.

Cindy Sheehan keeps asking Bush what the noble cause was, and so far she has no been given an answer. This I suspect is a case of making the mission fit the case, rather than the case fit the mission.

Then I am quite interested as to the definition of “a terrorist state”, especially when I fit that description to Israel, and then told that it does not apply. Thus I conclude that it is a subjective epithet.
