Politicians and Media Creating Wars

source: President Bush
And now you're involved in this global war on terror, in the central front, which is Iraq. I know some in America don't believe Iraq is the central front in the war on terror, and that's fine, they can have that opinion. But Osama bin Laden knows it's the central front in the war on terror. He has called Iraq the third world war. He has said of Iraq that he will lead to victory or glory or humiliation. We have made our decision. Iraq will lead to victory and glory for the United States, for the Iraqis, and for the moderates around the world.
The media has been showing just that clip i bolded.  It does give a false impression of what POTUS said, and makes it seem worse than it actually was.  We all know now, there is no glory in what the US is doing in Iraq.  So to pander for votes by appealing to the worst gingoistic instincts is nothing short of war mongering. But apparently Bush was playing off what he claims Osama said, and contrasting his rhetoric to that. 

Well from this citizen of the United States, this is my message in response to you: both of you stand down and let the  people rule !
