Well, if controversy is what you crave...

If the so-called patriotic war-supporters were real, red-blooded Americans, they would be comfortable and confident -- even accomodating of dissent and discourse -- since democracy and freedom are the values we are supposedly fighting this war for in the first place.

Show me evidence that the secular, Stalinist, Saddam had anything to do with the ostensibly Islamist attack on the World Trade Center. Show me the evidence that Saddam has weapons of mass destruction. Show me the evidence of any connection to Al-Qaida.

On the other hand, it is a fact that Bush fabricated, plagiarized and padded intelligence reports. It is a fact that the Bush has bugged and intercepted private correspondence of our allies in the United Nations. It is a fact that Halliburton is profiting enormously from this "war." It is a fact that civil liberties have eroded. And it is a fact that this "war" will promote hatred and terrorist reprisals.

Therefore, it is a fact that everyone, including the Dixie Chicks, has a responsibility to speak up, take part and debate the course of events. To go along with an unjust war is immoral. A president conducting an unjust war is to a president receiving a blow-job what premeditated murder is to a speeding ticket.
