Nick Berg Made The Choice

The father of Nick Berg, the man whose head was sawed off by a terrorist, most likely the now deceased Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, is blaming George Bush for the death of his son. Nick Berg was a civilian who went to Iraq on his own to work and make money. Let us just get it out now, he went to Iraq for the high salaries paid to people working there. There is no Utopian idea of going there for free just to help the poor Iraqis. He went to make money.

George W. Bush did not send Berg to Iraq. George Bush did not hire him or put him on a plane and Bush did not put him in circumstances that led to his capture. Berg’s father however, blames it on the President. Mr. Berg is running for office as a Greenie and he has found a Cindy Sheehan platform on which to run. He blames the President and Secretary Donald Rumsfeld for his son’s death. Nick Berg did not have any responsibility for his death because George Bush is to blame.

“I don’t think that Zarqawi is himself responsible for the killings of hundreds of thousands of people in Iraq,” Berg said in a combative television interview with the U.S. Fox News network. “I think George Bush is.

“George Bush is the one that invaded this country, George Bush is the one that destabilized it so that Zarqawi could get in, so that Zarqawi had a need to get in, to defend his region of the country from American invaders.”

You see, Greenies suffer from BDS too. George Bush caused all the problems. Bush did not belong in Iraq so Zarqawi (who is not from Iraq) had to come in and fight for the Iraqis. The score in the fight ended up Bush 1 Zarqawi 0.

Nick’s dad has a right to be angry. To level his blame on people who were not there and for a death of a person that George Bush did not send there is just plain ignorant. Berg had a choice, unlike the men and women in uniform who are sent there, Berg made a choice to go. He and only he, is responsible for that decision.

    Mr. Berg’s grief is complicated. He does not understand it himself. He has externalized his anger onto President Bush. President Bush is a better target of his anger than the Islamofacists who oppose everything that Mr Berg has stood for. Cindy Sheehan is operating in the same emotionally bankrupt manner. I hope Mr. Berg and Cindy will eventually come to terms about thier sons deathes. Nick put himself in harms way by choice and design. Casey Sheehan put himself in harms way be a sense of duty to country.

    Now both are dead.

    There are warriors who protect the weak. The warriors are still protecting. God bless out troops in harms way.
