Shut Your Pie Hole

We all knew it was coming, and it's no real suprise that Bill O'Reilly, the pillar of right wing moral virtue, was the first to do it. In one fell swoop O'Reilly called most Europeans idiots and used the tragedy of the London bombings to ramp up the rhetoric for the Iraq War:
Generally speaking, the European media is viciously anti-American when it comes to the war on terror. The garbage these people are throwing out to a largely clueless public is astounding. Failed leaders like Chirac in France and Schroeder in Germany also pound home the anti-American theme to divert attention away from their own disastrous administrations.
Okay, fine Bill, you're entitled to your own opinion but the following is inexcusable:
If all of the anti-U.S. bitterness were redirected into anti- terror bitterness, the world might defeat these savages. We all know which major countries allow terrorists to operate. Iran, Syria, Saudi Arabia, and to a lesser extent, Pakistan and Indonesia. Why isn't the European press condemning those countries? Why doesn't Europe admit Saddam's regime helped terrorists all day long? Why won't the world help the struggling democracy in Iraq?
I have just a few points of rebuttle you narrow-minded ignorant dickhead.
(1) You point your righteous little finger at several countries who apparently harbor terrorists. Fine. The world powers should do whatever is in their collective power to dissuade those nations from aiding and abetting international terrorists. BUT, I somehow doubt Bush/Cheney/Rove/Rummy/Condi would go into Saudi Arabia with the same vehemency as the other countries you mentioned. They damn well should, but most certainly won't.
(2) You suggest that Saddam's regime helped terrorists 'all day long'. Point well taken, and I suppose that is SOME reason for going balls out into Iraq. It's just too bad that wasn't the justification you used (read down to the 3nd paragraph). By the way where are those WMDs again?
(3) To link what happened in London with the so-called 'struggling democracy in Iraq' is, at the very least, irresponsible, and at the most despicable. How the hell are those two things connected? Do you think, for one second, that if Iraqi democracy no longer struggled and was set firmly in place, the terrorist attacks would suddenly stop? To suggest that the root cause of international terrorism has something to do with the 'world' (I think you mean Europe) not helping solidify a political process in Iraq is ridiculous.
(4) And finally, I thought I'd share your closing words of wisdom which are oh so enlightened:
USA is not the problem in this world. The terrorists are. And if you don't agree with that, you are helping killers like al Zarqawi. Enough's enough. London should be the last straw. And that's “The Memo.” - FOX News
Terrorists are most certainly a problem but the U.S. isn't close to perfect and if you ever come out of your Ivory Tower maybe you'd see that. In a world that is defined by its shades of grey, speaking in absolutes is very scary.

O'reilly is such a fucking blowtard. Unfortunately i've had the displeasure of listening to his crap on American Satelite for quite some time and now i understand fox news has come to canada so everyone can now see how vile he can be.

I can't stand him. Grr! Have you seen the documentary Outfoxed? It's really good and attacks their claim of being "fair and balanced."

There's also a particular reel that shows all the times Bill O'Reilly rudely told his guests to "shut up!" It's disgusting.

You can see how intelligent you liberal socialist are just by your vocabulary. Good luck with your angry, miserable lives. Since you hate your country so bad, I heard you can get some great land in Canada.
