I usually don’t read what Ted has to say. I don’t care, because it’s always utter non-sense, full of falsehoods and his wet dreams. And this time is no exceptions. I feel like debunking some of the stuff he just won’t admit. The guy is loony. I never subscribed to his “emailing list”, and he won’t take me off. I have no idea who he works for. As you might guess, he’s a Republican.
The saintly Republican idea about Iraq was to depose a horrendous Nazi-like dictator with whom we were already at war over the “no fly zones,” the “oil for food” program, nuclear inspections, and the inconclusive end to the previous war. It seemed perfectly obvious given that we were already at war and that we had just failed to preemptively strike Afghanistan (which appeared to be 1000 times less threatening than Iraq) on 9/10 or earlier. This is a simple point but nevertheless beyond the intellectual grasp of Democrats who continue to hallucinate that Iraq was somehow not directly connected to 9/11.
Never mind that the sanctions imposed by the West killed about a million people, if not more. The sole mission of this guy is to write “democrat” and an insult as many times as possible. He forgets that there has so far been presented no evidence of 9/11-Hussein connection, and that the WMD were lies. He won’t get pass this fact. I guess it must be pathological.
Moreover, not only would striking Iraq remove Saddam’s Nazi-like regime and the huge threat its very existence implied in a post 9/11 world, it would also, hopefully, pave the way for democracy which might then spread throughout the Middle East and the world and thus fulfill our moral duty to the world’s citizens as well as make us and the world safe from another 9/11 type of attack. It was a bold plan to use our position as the world’s moral and military superpower to spread freedom, limit gov’t, and prevent war.
Hopefully, might… they paid a lot of dollars for hope. I guess Americans really are people of faith. I guess America’s supreme moral superpower (I guess that place is full of firemen and super heroes?) got flushed down the toiled into the Tigris the moment they opened Abu Ghraib, Guantanamo and a bunch of other (secret) prisons, including those in Eastern Europe and beyond, who’s country leaders are “Nazi wannabe like” at best. I have no idea where Ted gets the idea that Reps want to limit government. My guess is pot.
When Bush said “mission accomplished” and it did seem that democracy was immediately spreading to Palestine, Libya, Egypt, and Lebanon. The Democrats were stone cold silent having stood foursquarely in the way of freedom once again. But, once the war started going badly, as wars can, they became instant Bush haters who instantly claimed perfect hindsight. By now most have actually convinced themselves that they knew it all along. They feel no sense of hypocrisy as they proudly exploit the situation for political gain despite having no agenda if they should succeed in achieving political gain.
A lot has been said about “mission accomplished”. No Ted, we DID know all along. We were screaming our nuts off. Its just that YOU and your kabal of fascists (in a true sense of meaning, not the American meaning) didn’t listen, probably due to your political and financial gain.
But still, the war in Iraq has gone badly; primarily because Bush never had a plan to pacify the minority Sunnis who had brutally dominated the less pugnacious Shiite majority. So, rather than give up power to the majority Shiites and become second class citizens or worse, the sweet Sunni Muslims did what they had always done to dominate the majority: they started killing them in brutal fashion. The key mistake was for Bush to de-Bathify the country thus disenfranchising key Sunnis permanently to then become insurgents, almost by default, rather than employing them gainfully as stakeholders in the new country.
Notice the little distancing. If you could read Ted’ss emails before the Iraq and Afghanistan wars went all quagmire, he was Bush’s bitch. He would declare him super this, or hero that every time he could. Then, when things started looking bad for the Republicans (when besh REALLY started screwing up), he started distancing from Janez there, and has been doing since. Once a ball licker, always a ball licker, Ted.
This probably implied eternal war, but more importantly, it did not even imply democracy since the Muslim Shiites insanely hate our Judeo Christian democratic guts, despite our extreme largesse in freeing them.
And why did generals insist on twice the number of troops for the security of Iraq than they brought in? Because they were being greeted with flowers? Who’s line is that? I bet he is a Republican.
Why didn’t someone tell Bush that we really don’t want Muslim fanatic democracy in Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Egypt, Pakistan, Syria, Iran, or Iraq? What we want is allegiance to a Jeffersonian Constitution with a fig leaf of democracy like we have here in the United States. Tragically, we don’t and can’t promote that anywhere in the world because the Democrats are against Jeffersonian freedom.
Ted is forgetting, that since 9/11, the Democrats have been in it all along. They have voted for anything Bush threw at them. There is no party line or ideology destinction at all.
Wake up and smell the air, Ted. Americas plan to occupy the Middle East to gain power over last drops of oil to make a buch on China’s and Europe’s expense, has failed. And you’re the one going into a recession. EU will follow, if they don’t distance themselves from the imperialistic West.
