    So now Abraham Lincolm takes the honor of becoming the number one mass murderer in American history for unleashing black violence upon society, which has led to hundreds of thousands of murders since the end of the Civil War.

    Sure is a neat trick you have of trying to change the subject when someone makes a good point. Just an observation.........

    I think you could probably bestow that honor on the confederate states.

    That's not a change of subject, it's an application of AdamT's principle. Lincoln freed the slaves and so he is responsible for all of the harm that results from his action. AdamT even dressed up his reasoning with examples. This is simply another example.

    I'm perfectly willing to credit Lincoln with freeing an entire race from slavery. Are you also going to credit him with the murders that every white person has committed?

    LOL! Sure, the most powerful military on the planet attacking one of the weakest, to gain access for big oil that has been denied for the last 35 years under Iraq's Nationalized oil policy, is exactly the same as our civil war!

    Why would I? Applying your razor-honed reasoning, Lincoln didn't do anything that gave whites the freedom to murder people. Lincoln freed blacks from slavery, where they were controlled and had no freedom.

    -Bush freed Iraqis and gave them the opportunity to murder one another, therefore it is Bush who is responsible for all of those murders.
    -Lincoln freed blacks and gave them the opportunity to murder people, therefore it is Lincoln who is responsible for all of those murders.

    You're the one who is pushing screwed up logic because you have an irrational and emotional need to blame Bush. Logic is not situation specific. The principles are generalizable.

    I'm not trying to blame Bush for murders committed in Iraq 150 years from now, which would be the analogy flying off your rapier-like mind.

    I'm blaming Bush for the perfectly foreseeable results of his invasion.

    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.
