Mr. Bush, Tear Down This Ad 

Remember when the Swift Boat liars first krept out from under their rock and demanded that Kerry stop using a picture of himself because some of them were also in the picture? Well...

In one of Bush's current ads he shows images of the Iraqi socer team, and guess what; they don't want him to.
"Iraq as a team does not want Mr. Bush to use us for the presidential campaign," Sadir told SI.com through a translator, speaking calmly and directly. "He can find another way to advertise himself."
Hey, I wonder if the freepers will condemn Bush for using the image of people who oppose him? Hmmm? Huh, freepers? Will ya?
Ahmed Manajid, who played as a midfielder on Wednesday, had an even stronger response when asked about Bush's TV advertisement. "How will he meet his god having slaughtered so many men and women?" Manajid told me. "He has committed so many crimes."
Oooo, they don't seem to like him, do they?

Maybe it's just a few of them. I mean surely most of them are grateful to Bush, right?
To a man, members of the Iraqi Olympic delegation say they are glad that former Olympic committee head Uday Hussein, who was responsible for the serial torture of Iraqi athletes and was killed four months after the U.S.-led coalition invaded Iraq in March 2003, is no longer in power.

But they also find it offensive that Bush is using Iraq for his own gain when they do not support his administration's actions. "My problems are not with the American people," says Iraqi soccer coach Adnan Hamad. "They are with what America has done in Iraq: destroy everything. The American army has killed so many people in Iraq. What is freedom when I go to the [national] stadium and there are shootings on the road?"
Aren't sports heros great? And to think, I don't even like sports.
