Bush says fight against terror is World War III:
In an interview with the financial news network CNBC on Friday, Bush said he had yet to see the recently released film of the uprising, a dramatic portrayal of events on the United Airlines plane before it crashed in a Pennsylvania field.Bush & Co are running on fear now, ladies and gentlemen. Ironic, isn't it?
But he said he agreed with the description of David Beamer, whose son Todd died in the crash, who in a Wall Street Journal commentary last month called it "our first successful counterattack in our homeland in this new global war – World War III".
Bush said, "I believe that. I believe that it was the first counterattack to World War III.
Meanwhile, back at the ranch:
"The problem is that we're in war, and sometimes it's hard for people to get a positive message about the economy when they're troubled by scenes of violence on the TV screens," the president said.Seems he cannot understand how people dying might be more important than new record profits for Big Oil.
