Frank Fisks Osama

Varifrank is fisking Osama.

Here is one hilarious bit with Varifrank in bold:

Bush said: It is better to fight them on their ground than they fighting us on our ground.

In my response to these fallacies, I say: The war in Iraq is raging, and the operations in Afghanistan are on the rise in our favour, praise be to God.

And I say to you Osama, you didn’t answer your own question. If we are fighting in Iraq, is that not what Bush set out to do, and you have yet to stop us from doing?

The Pentagon figures indicate the rise in the number of your dead and wounded, let alone the huge material losses, and let alone the collapse of the morale of the soldiers there and the increase in the suicide cases among them.

Don’t’cha dig it when Osama talks in Washington-speak? “Pentagon figures”? Who talks like that? More importantly, note that he talks about the “huge material losses” and the “collapse of morale”. Again, someone is getting a monthly DNC newsletter with a hand written “thank you for your contribution” note attached to it.
You know. Go read the whole thing.

In today’s New York Times John Tierney discusses both the Oregon “assisted suicide” case, but then goes on to look at something else, something which should also concern those opposed to assisted suicide, the way in which the Bush DEA has been harassing doctors who prescribe opioids as a means of palliative care for those in extreme pain, something, ironically, that can (I reckon) only make it more likely that patients will be driven to take their own lives.

Thanks for putting up the link Doug.

I saw that too. Hadn't decided what to do about it because the Tierney article is for NYT customers only/
