choking you

so, by now we know that george w bush said the following:

"There are some who feel like that, you know, the conditions are such that they can attack us there," Bush told reporters at the White House. "My answer is, `Bring 'em on.'"

okay. incredibly stupid thing to do.

but then i also found something else in the sentence that followed that stupid line:

"We will deal with them harshly if they continue to try to bring harm to the Iraqi people."

okay. first - the people doing the shooting are not harming iraqis right now. the us army is.
is george w really that inept and/or a blatant liar? they're killing us troops.
why does he keep trying to sell this as fighting for iraqi freedom? don't turn this around on us.

second - don't try and separate these shooters from the 'good' iraqi citizens (i really hope the bush administration is keeping the 'saddam loyalists' line for the american people - even though that is sick in its own right - because if they really believe that the people doing the shooting are really only remnants of the baath party, then they're really inept at their jobs). the people doing the shooting are mostly pissed off iraqis protecting their own asses (since you can't seem to do a good job of it) who want the damn occupation over - get it?
if another country waged war on you and won and were roaming the streets day in and day out, and kept coming into your homes to see if you had any type of weapon, and couldn't get your electricity and water running after two months, you'd also want them out.
