Please explain.....my head is ready to explode
This is just a known example of our good work which makes no sense.

We believe X is a terrorist( ARAR)
We don't torture people,against the Geneva conference and America would never do that!
We have an Axis of Evil that * has told the world about which includes Iraq, Iran and N. Korea
Syria is by extension part of the Axis because they fund Hezbollah and are in 'bed' with Iran

NOW ( my confusion), We send a suspected Terrorist to a country that is part of the Axis of Evil, to get tortured and .....this is supposed to bring peace, freedom,democracy and liberty to the world, but we won't sit down and have diplomatic talks with them?

Please help this feeble brain!

3. This war is based on global corporate greed and profit
That's why there is no way to make sense of these actions.

I've had many fundies tell me that Syria was in collusion with Saddam and is storing the WMD's.

5. Here, simple.
Forget about there being something called "truth" which is greater than us...Instead, consider various universes where different things are true. In universe A, Syria is our ally in the war on the axis of evil, and helps us by torturing people, who we know our terrorists, by omnipotent means. In universe B, Syria is against us, and is part of the Axis of evil.
Now to put it all together, you need to understand that there is this man named Bush, who moves us from universe to universe by his words...when he says something is true, our reality moves into the universe where it is true....because truth itself is defined by his words.
Got it? Good. You now understand the republican mind. :)

12. It was the year 2004 presidential debates..
Edited on Wed Sep-20-06 11:35 PM by lvx35
Where Kerry asked Bush if he could name one thing, one thing at all, that he had ever been wrong about, and Bush was unable to respond. Some thought Bush was just arrogant beyond comprehension, but I was wiser realized Bush's superhuman status. I realized Bush's rightness was something of a universal constant, like the speed of light was to Einstein. Space and time and even the meanings of words themselves bent around it, occasionally collapsing into blackholes of complete nonsense from which no meaning could escape.

And this, this is the root of my theory. ;)

15. hehe. Whoops my bad.
I guess I forgot to tell you the part of my theory that allows Bush to run in every future presidential election, because the year is always 2000! :lol:

Syria is by extension part of the Axis because they fund Hezbollah and are in 'bed' with Iran

10. silly you- the rules don't apply to US, only to them-
we have the most WMD's, and no body can take them away from us.

It isn't your brain, your brain is just fine- You haven't learned to swallow the kool-aid.
