Strange Logic....
    #1898479 - 09/09/03 04:17 PM (13 years, 11 months ago)

Ive just seen Paul Wolfowitz on television explaining how the $87 billion dollars needed to continue the liberexploitationating of Iraq is justified by the fact that the cost of 9/11 was much more?? WTF?

I think it is a comparison of costs. Pretty simple.

it's not an appeal to logic but to emotion.

I agree. This is to pay for the war on terror though, is it not?

Please explain to me how you have a war on an abstract noun.

Well, if he believes that what is happening in Iraq will prevent another 9-11, I see his point.I don't necessarily agree, but I see his point.

I see what everyone is saying. It is so hard to form an opinion when you see both sides so clearly!

I suppose that must be it. It just struck me as a really weird thing to say when I heard it!

he just wanted to slip in a 9/11 reference to get people to feel a little easier about forking over $87 billion (just to start) for rebuilding iraq. there's absolutely no logic behind the statement whatsoever, but emotion... ah... that's where you can always get the ignorant masses going.

alex... this morning when i woke up i decided that i'm declaring war on my lack of motivation.

"9-11"

That's all they have to say to get away with anything. It was the best thing that ever happened to them.


"Hey............9-11"
