A liberal blog
linked here, and my post on the Liberals purportedly supporting the troops
but not the War. A quick stroll through the blog of our liberal friend shows the usual Liberal approved messages. We need to fire Rumsfeld. I didn't bother counting, but read at least five mentions to getting rid of Rummy. Bush is the worst (Third) President in History. Yawn and scratch here if you like.
I have to admit, our dear Liberal is right on Nuclear Power
, yet he is wrong on so many other topics.
We Conservatives say that the biggest threat in the free world is Islamo Fascists, Liberals including our blogger say that the biggest threat is Rumsfeld followed by Bush and Cheney.The question is not what must happen, it's what can we do. We can still easily win the war. But the campaign in Iraq is lost. We can cut out loses or we can let it continue to bleed us in men and money and our standing in the world. But we can't win it.
Or to paraphrase Donald Rumsfeld, you fight the war with the administration you have, not the administration you wish you had. We cannot win this war with Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld/Pace/Abizaid in charge. No way/no how/not happening.
Well Gee, we can't win in Iraq is his armchair expert assessment. Yep, that makes him a Liberal.
So what does his suggest in the end of his ill conceived rant? We should pull out of Iraq, surrendering it to the Islamo Fascists because that will make it easier to win the War on Terror.
I suggest you consider how pulling out of Iran
made us stronger in the Middle East? Wait it didn't make us more loved and more respected? How about when we pulled out of Beirut
, I am sure that made us stronger. Somalia, no not there either. I am sure that our dear Liberal is busy as we speak trying to find a place in history where surrender got you the goals you fought for.
I would like to take a moment and ask you to consider what the enemy thought of us leaving Somalia, another instance where Liberals thought we could not win.Describe the situation when your men took down the American forces in Somalia.
After our victory in Afghanistan and the defeat of the oppressors who had killed millions of Muslims, the legend about the invincibility of the superpowers vanished. Our boys no longer viewed America as a superpower. So, when they left Afghanistan, they went to Somalia and prepared themselves carefully for a long war. They had thought that the Americans were like the Russians, so they trained and prepared. They were stunned when they discovered how low was the morale of the American soldier. America had entered with 30,000 soldiers in addition to thousands of soldiers from different countries in the world. ... As I said, our boys were shocked by the low morale of the American soldier and they realized that the American soldier was just a paper tiger. He was unable to endure the strikes that were dealt to his army, so he fled, and America had to stop all its bragging and all that noise it was making in the press after the Gulf War
It seems that when we surrender, and pull out, because the naysayers think we can't win, we empower our enemy to greater efforts the next time. The problem with cutting and running is simple, sooner or later you run out of places to run from.
We pull out of Iraq, it falls, and joins with Iran as a major Islamic nation using threats and oil with terrorism to carry on the Prophets will of slaughtering as many innocents as possible. Next we are bombed in Saudi Arabia, the the rest of the Middle East, we can't win the Liberals say, we must pull out. We are bombed everywhere, and we pull back the US Territory, and we are attacked in another city as we were on 9-11. What do we do then? Surrender San Francisco to the Terrorists, because we can't win? Where do we draw the line, the line that says we as a nation will fight here no matter the cost, no matter the burden.Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty.
This much we pledge--and more.
To those old allies whose cultural and spiritual origins we share, we pledge the loyalty of faithful friends. United there is little we cannot do in a host of cooperative ventures. Divided there is little we can do--for we dare not meet a powerful challenge at odds and split asunder.
That was from President Kennedy's speech
, and it states the ideals that we are fighting for today. We haven't born the burden, we haven't endured the hardship, nor have we opposed the foe. We have pretended we didn't have a foe, pretended to deal with it in a civilized manner, using the justice system to hide from the foe. We pretend we can fight this war in the court rooms of the world instead of in battle. We can't fight the foe that way, and we can't win by surrender. We are HERE because of Surrender in the past.
We are in Iraq because we surrendered in Beirut, Somalia, and Iran. We saw the Extremists gaining ground, and didn't oppose them then. We are stuck with it now, and it's going to be a mother of a long fight. We can ignore it for another Generation, and then we have to start falling back within our own states, and then we really won't be able to win the war on Terror.
I say fight this war NOW, win it within the next Generation. If it takes 20 years, then it's our burden, and we have shrunk from that burden for too long as it is. Each time we refuse to pick up that challenge, we make the enemy stronger, and we make ourselvs weaker. We could have won this war easily in 1979, and it would have taken more effort in 1983. By 1993, it would have taken a grand effort, yet it was still winnable. Today, the effort is gigantic, and will take two decades or even more to finally win.
The enemy must be eliminated, not tried and convicted. We aren't going to win any war in the court room, but in the dark recesses of the globe. Those Liberals and Democrats who assumed the war was won, or would be won easily were fools. Those who think the war is about Osama Bin Laden are fools. If we kill Osama today, the war would still need to be fought tomorrow.
Yes, I know how we can win this war, and the Liberals would never allow us to do it.
First, roll and coat all bullets in Pig fat, advertise this fact. Show video of the troops doing this. Thus when you shoot an enemy, he not only dies, but goes straight to hell instead of to his many virgins. Bury the bodies of the enemy under pigs. If you want a holy war, I will be quite happy to give it to you. We won't do that however, because it's too cruel and insensitive. We have to respect the IslamoFasists who are trying to kill us.How do I know
? Congress ordered the US Army not to use Israeli Ammunition in Iraq, because it might outrage
the Islamo nuts who we are fighting. Yep, don't want to make that enemy mad."by no means, under any circumstances should a round (from Israel) be utilized," said Rep. Neil Abercrombie of Hawaii, the top Democrat on a House of Representatives Armed Services subcommittee with jurisdiction over land forces.
Liberals don't get it, we are in a Holy War, the enemy said so, and we should use Ammunition from Israel, rolled in pig fat, dipped in pig blood, to fight this enemy. Take them out of this world, and send them straight to Hell in the next. If they can't gain Paradise, then they won't want to risk fighting us. Winning a war means taking the fight out of your enemy, and using whatever means it will take to do so. Japan required two atomic bombs before they were ready to stop the fight. Germany fought nearly to the last man. We fire bombed Dresden, and bombed cities into rubble. We were willing to bear the burden with the Greatest Generation
, now we are unwilling to endure even the slightest injury before we surrender.
