"Putin'" His two-cents in


But it's nice to see someone in a position of informed authority -- president of an anti-Iraq-war country, no less, come out and say it flatly:

MOSCOW, Russia (CNN) -- Russian President Vladimir Putin says terrorist attacks in Iraq are aimed at preventing the re-election of U.S. President George W. Bush and that a Bush defeat "could lead to the spread of terrorism to other parts of the world." . . .
"Any unbiased observer understands that attacks of international terrorist organizations in Iraq, especially nowadays, are targeted not only and not so much against the international coalition as against President Bush,"
Putin said.

Well, they succeeded in Spain in removing Anzar. Success breeds success. They are trying and will continue to try here. If they succeed here, they will be emboldened to try to push their world view on us and the rest of the world. I don't think many of us want that world view. And sorry, it is NOT the moral equivalent of Bush's.

Give a screaming child what it wants, and you can expect more screaming. Give killers of innocent people what they want, and you can count on more killing of innocents.

Let's see, Osama Bin Laden wants Kerry to win. Kim Jung-Il wants Kerry to win. Ingrid Newkirk (PETA) wants Kerry to win.

Do I need any more reasons to vote for Bush?
