President Bush, attacking war critics

during the 2004 presidential campaign: “See, we don’t create enemies and terrorists by fighting back. We defeat the terrorists by fighting back.” Lt. Gen. Peter Chiarelli, the U.S. commander in charge of day-to-day military operations in Iraq, from today’s Los Angeles Times: “We have to understand that the way we treat Iraqis has a direct effect on the number of insurgents that we are fighting. For every one that I kill, I create almost 10 more.” (HT: Salon’s War Room)
