    bring them on

    Bush, when talking about the insurgence present in Iraq, said that, "They feel like if they attack us, that we may decide to leave...they feel like the conditions are such...that they can attack us there. My answer is, bring them on".

    "Them" there refers to terrorist attacks, right? I think it is the terrorists who "bring them on" in this context. "Bring them on" is like, "My answer is, go ahead with your attacks. You will find yourselves deadly wrong". Am I right?
    Thank you very much!

    That's exactly right, Joe....LET THEM COME! Sort of like saying "I dare you...".
    (it's one of the dumb things he said).
