While you focus on your typing skills, you might want to bone up on how to develop effective argument skills. Did you actually read Octo's intro to these articles?:
It's incredible, that the largest-circulation newspaper in Canada can have a High Priestess Of Dumbth like Zerbisias on the payroll, spewing out gibberish as regularly as our own wetbrains, the illustrious Troll Brothers. Are there no journalistic standards, up there? No wonder, "a majority of Canadians" are living in the tinfoil-toque universe of conspiracy-theory.
So what is your reply? You post two excerpts from supposedly credible journalists that would "apply" to those conspiracy theories. And you have the audacity to expect us to forget about your opinions about Bush....and accept your post as having no relevance to those opinions? We're supposed to accept you as an unbiased provider of information...just like smike, when he "educates" us about the terrorists motivations for killing Westerners?
But it gets better. Octo's reply to your post included the following:
If any government officials should be blamed in America, it would be the several administrations leading up to Bush's short term, prior to the 9/11 attacks. Read up on the formation, missions and purposely-separated functions of the FBI and CIA, if you want to have a clue as to why we couldn't stop Al Qaeda on 9/11. Dubya had nothing to do with it. Those who hate Dubya, will continue to blame him for everything, such as the mountain of WMD evidence compiled by international sources for over a decade prior to Dubya's election.
We know right now, there are terrorist cells operating in America, and plenty more in Canada. That doesn't mean we can stop them every time. We can stop them 200 times in a row, and then they pull off one truck-bomb or dirty-bomb in a strategic locale, killing thousands or taking down a national monument, and we lose. It's our fault. Dubya's the bad guy.
The Politics of Dumbth, will be the death of us yet. These two guys you quote should both change their last names to "Dover." Be honest about it.
Octo intended to discredit an opinion about Bush that you share with the nut jobs. Your reply was to "prove" that it wasn't just the nut jobs that had that opinion. Why eles would you bother posting it?. Well, those credible sources that you quoted weren't crazy enough to compare Bush to Hitler. So don't pretend, for a moment, that their opinions about Bush are as credible as yours, or the other nut jobs.
