"Bush calls the al Qaeda people cowards, and says, 'They like to hide.'

Well isn't that what the American Continental Army did during the American Revolution? Our beloved patriots? They hid. They hid behind trees. Then they came out, killed some British soldiers, and ran away. Just like al Qaeda.

That's what you do when you're outnumbered and have less firepower than the enemy.
It's called 'trying to win'.
It's not cowardly."

(George Carlin)
