America Did Not Ask for This War???
Exclusive to STR

Governments are based on lies. They need liars to fill the offices of their various branches of government in order to promote the government lies. To add yet another tragically comic layer of lies to government, these government liars are called 'public servants'! One great example of a government liar is US President George W. Bush.
In his speech to the nation last night, September 11, 2006 the fifth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks which he was politicizing for the upcoming elections, he said, 'America did not ask for this war.' He may be correct in that we did not verbally ask for it, but our actions were, and are, begging for it! And as we all know, actions speak much louder than words.
All one needs to do to see how we were and are begging for a war with Islam is to look back on our Middle East actions and foreign policy for the last 25 years or so. We have given a blank check to Israel while turning our backs on the Palestinians. Whenever Israel commits an act of terrorism against the Islamic people bad enough for the UN to take notice, we veto virtually any UN resolution critical of the Jewish terrorist state. This bias in favor of Israel and against the Palestinians and Islamic people puts the US squarely on the side of Israel in its war with Islam. It is, in effect, not only asking for war but taking part in it by our own actions through our own initiative.
America begs for war when it demands the Islamic nations obey UN resolutions while never demanding that Israel do the same. A case in point, UN Resolution 242. UN Security Council Resolution 242 calls for pre-1967 borders to be established in the Middle East and for Jerusalem to remain an open city free of any one government's control. Israel has ignored this resolution for years while America has done absolutely nothing to encourage Israel to follow it. American governmental hypocrisy on this scale does not go unnoticed by the Palestinians and other Islamic people even though it appears Americans don't notice it nor do they even care.
Our consistent hypocrisy in regards to Israel and the Islamic people cries out for an Islamic war with the United States. For example, every year since 1985 the US and its tax-payers have given 3 BILLION tax-dollars each and every year to Israel, much of it openly in the form of deadly military weapons that Israel then uses to slaughter Islamic people. Americans need to ask themselves what they would do if Canada occupied Montana and received this kind of support from Russia. With Americans being slaughtered by the invading Canadian forces using billions of dollars worth of weapons from Russia, would Americans not also try and strike at Russia???
US Senator William Fulbright, who was in the Senate from 1945 through 1974, wrote in his book The Price of Empire: '. . . we, and we alone, have made it possible for Israel to exist as a state.' (Based on libertarian philosophy, this indicates Israel does not deserve to exist since it can't do it independently of US aid and handouts.) This fact is well known by Muslims throughout the world and especially those Muslims who suffer directly the violent consequence of America's deadly weapons that we've been putting in the hands of the Israelis for the last several decades. Again, these actions are not only equivalent to America asking and begging for war with Islam, but by blindly supporting Israel in its war with Islam we have been actually waging war with Islam. In short, we started it.
Bush's handlers are helping him to be smoother in his delivery of both lies and half-truths. This was made evident by his rhetorical banter in his 9/11 spiel when he said, 'I am often asked why we are in Iraq when Saddam Hussein was not responsible for the 9/11 attacks.
'The answer is that the regime of Saddam Hussein was a clear threat. The world is safer because Saddam Hussein is no longer in power.'
The question that desperately needs to be asked, a question that is never asked by the established media, is who was Saddam's Iraq a threat to? It wasn't a threat to America. It wasn't a threat to England. It wasn't a threat to Europe or China or Australia. But it was a threat to Israel! Saddam was paying the families of Palestinian suicide bombers who attacked Israel $25,000 each. With Saddam gone, Israel was safer. As reported by the Associated Press on June 10, 2004, US Vice President Dick Cheney said in the Vice Presidential campaign debate, 'There have been fewer suicide attacks in Israel because Saddam Hussein is no longer around to support suicide bombers.'
Retired Israeli General Avraham Rotem further proves the war in Iraq is for Israel's benefit when he said, 'A (US) war with Iraq serves Israel's strategic interests because it wants Saddam gone. Someone says, 'You sit back, we'll take care of it'--what's better than that?' (St. Petersburg Times, March 15, 2003, p. 5A).
One of the most recent examples of America's blind support for Israel against Islam was seen last month during the Israeli invasion of Lebanon. The Jewish state showed no restraint in the way it used the deadly arsenal given to it by America. When their invasion first started and they assumed their military might would utterly destroy Hezbollah if only they had enough time to bomb Lebanon, the US went against the rest of the world by not calling for a cease fire. (The kosher cowards in the 'US' Senate voted 100 percent for a craftily worded resolution which essentially was intended to show unquestioning support for Israel's invasion of Lebanon!) Then, when it became painfully evident to Israel and its stooges in the US Congress and White House that the Israeli Terrorist Forces were not defeating Hezbollah and that Hezbollah was actually getting stronger by Israel's state terrorism, the US and its leader Israel agreed to a cease fire.
When America expedited shipments of cluster bombs to Israel to use against the Lebanese, and used with total disregard for civilians, we were showing the Islamic people of the world, all 1.3 BILLION of them, that we want war with Islam. And we have it!
