Taken Out Of Context?

The President replied: “Doomsday scenario of course is that extremists throughout the Middle East would be emboldened, which would eventually lead to another attack on the United States.
“The biggest issue we face is, it‘s bigger than Iraq, it‘s this ideological struggle against cold-blooded killers who will kill people to achieve their political objectives.”

Mr. Bush, at long last, has it not dawned on you that the America you have now created, includes ‘cold-blooded killers who will kill people to achieve their political objectives‘? They are those in, or formerly in, your employ, who may yet be charged some day with war crimes. Through your haze of self-congratulation and self-pity, do you still have no earthly clue that this nation has laid waste to Iraq to achieve your political objectives?

Is Keith really saying our soldiers are cold blooded killers? I'm not so sure that's what he's implying at all. It is true that this nation has laid waste to Iraq. I don't think Keith is referring to the soldiers. He's referring to Bush and his cronies- as well as groups such as Blackwater. Our troops follow orders so I don't believe that Keith would say that about them.
Now I could be wrong because only the Lord and Keith knows how his brain functions half the time, but fair is fair and I felt the need to defend him. I'll probably wake up in a cold sweat tonight doing this but I believe Keith really cares about our troops. And I'm sure he's just like everybody else who would like to see them all come home.
But afterwards that's when we all part company. He goes to his big house in the sky and plays with himself while the rest of the country, including our troops, goes home and struggles.

And, if you look at it closely enough, Keith's "special comments" are designed specifically to get a rise out of those who don't like him, and to get some ooohs and aaaahs from those who do.
So everybody fell for it. Including me. But then, I kinda sorta in a way like his commentaries.
