"There are some who feel like conditions are such that they can attack us there," Bush told reporters at the White House. "My answer is: Bring them on. We have the force necessary to deal with the situation."
Not content in ordering young men and women into the combat he, himself, avoided during Vietnam and is avoiding now, Bush has taken it upon himself to dare the Iraqi resistance to attack US citizens on the ground in Iraq. And it is easy for Bush to talk tough since, unlike the soldiers, he is safe in Washington behind Secret Service security.
And does not inviting people to attack Americans constitute terrorism? Does this encouragement of violence against American citizens not violate some provision of Bush's draconian Patriot Act?
Bush's list of crimes against the ordinary US citizen is lengthening every day. Whether it is boosting corporate America will attacking working America, or eliminating basic human rights and civil liberties, Bush has shown himself the enemy of the majority of the country while the friend of the wealthy and powerful elite.
Now he calls upon Iraqis to attack US troops. How many more Americans are his words and actions going to kill?
How long are Americans doing to tolerate this hater of the American people?
