Saddam Hussein had to be removed. What I saw over there were schools being reopened and the power being turned back on and hospitals being reopened and built, and what I saw were a lot of Iraqi people who want what you and I want —they want a job, to be able to raise our kids in a free world where guys don't walk in with dynamite strapped to themselves and blow themselves up.A free world where Americans walk in and rake them all full of lead. And exactly how often did suicide bombings take place in Iraq under Saddam, Brooce?
I support these kids over there fighting and dying, you know. It's a harsh, harsh, existence.What, these kids? Be specific you fool.
The passage that caught Catallaxy's attention:
The perception in the modern world is that America lost the Vietnam War. A lot of Australians fought in the Vietnam War. But if the free world had not fought in Vietnam for 15 years, there would be no multibillion-dollar free trade world in the Pacific Rim. There would be no Taiwan. So we held back that communism that would want to shut down that free trade. And if a free trade economy is established in the Middle East, hopefully, a similar thing could happen.Similar to the free trade economy America established in Vietnam in 1974? Or similar to the Taiwan which is in Vietnam what the Americans liberated when they didn't lose at all?
I've saved the planet eight or nine times now.Right. Eight or Nine. Thank god for Bruce.
Next time I'm considering shelling out on one of his thick and fast epics I'll ram my money down the nearest drain instead.
