Get A Rush!
The Democrats today are so craven in their demand for defeat, it is an incessantly, increasingly loud demand for defeat. They won't even support the president sending reinforcements to the troops on the ground, and they all at the same time claim that they support the troops. Frankly, not enough has been done outside of talk radio to expose their sabotaging and that's exactly what has been going on.
The Democrat Party has been sabotaging this war effort as soon as they felt comfortable making the move. They were always going to. It just required a little work in advance on the part of their buddies in the media to start ginning up anti-war support, and they could make it look like they were reacting to the American people. That's what all those polls way back in 2002, '3, '4, and '5 were all about. Creating enough anti-war sentiment, Democrats could pretend that they were listening to the will of the people, when in fact it was all a strategy designed to give them the freedom and opportunity to make statements which are, for them, honest and who they really are, no matter what the time frame.
So there has been an effort here to sabotage victory, and nobody talks about it. They drew the line in Iraq years ago, and they drew the line in Iraq because they don't want us to win this war at any level, because they don't want us to win a war at any level. They draw the line on Iraq because any successful military incursion, while George Bush is president, just dooms them in the future in one of their fundamental beliefs, and that is the US military is the focus of evil of the modern world. They're doing the same thing when it comes to internal security from external threats.
Then we're going to have to go back, we're going to have to go back somewhere, Iraq, I don't know where, at a far greater cost to us and our allies in the region such as they are, it's going to be far more dangerous. But right now neither the Democrats nor some queasy Republicans or the public accepts generally the enormity of what we are dealing with, despite 9/11 having happened, which is what's so frustrating to those of us who see this clearly. In fact, it may take a Democrat president to deal with this years and years and years from now.
You think if Bill Clinton were president right now, they'd be calling for pulling out? Do you think they'd be conducting hearings against Clinton? Do you think the anti-war movement would be as strident as it is? Do you think John Conyers and Kennedy and all these guys would oppose supplemental funding requests for reinforcements, do you think that would happen if Bill Clinton or Hillary, or take your pick if any Democrat were president today? Of course it would not. And guess what, there wouldn't be any Republicans doing it, either, because the Republicans would join with the Democrats in facing the enormity of the problem. They would support a Democrat president under these circumstances. The Democrats simply will not do it.
I don't usually post his stuff--not because it isn't good--but because his is a members-only site. This was important enough, I thought everyone should read it. I believe it IS our future.
