America Has the “Moral High Ground” Now

September 15, 2006

As we all know by now, the Senate Armed Services Committee rejected President Bush’s proposal for interrogations of battlefield detainees captured in the War on Terror. It was defeated by a vote of 15 to 9, with Republican’s John Warner, John McCain, Lindsey Graham and Susan Collins defecting to join the Democrats in voting against the proposal. Retired General and former Secretary of State, Colin Powell, joined in with disapproval of President Bush’s proposal.

While this will obviously spell trouble for President Bush and the over all War on Terror we are currently engaged in, several are lauding the outcome and claiming it keeps America on the “Moral High Ground.”

Colin Powell says the world's beginning to doubt the moral basis of our fight against terrorism.

For some time now, McCain has been saying we have lost the "Moral High Ground" and need to regain it by treating detainees with kid gloves lest they mistreat any of our troops they may capture. The Supreme Court has basically granted captured terrorists the rights and protections of our Constitution with the full approval of Senator McCain and others. Do they also extend our Second Amendment Rights to Battlefield Detainees held in Guantanamo as well?

Senator McCain, time to wake up and smell the coffee. As someone who endured the suffering of torture when you were a POW at the hands of the Communist North Vietnamese, you should know what torture really is. Techniques we are using and that President Bush is asking for is NOT torture. Add to that the treatment of any of our troops, or even journalists, to date at the hands of terrorists and you will see while we may get aggressive, we do not hack them to pieces with machetes or behead them on video for the world to see.

Much is being said about America having the “Moral High Ground" now that the Senate Armed Services Committee has rejected the Presidents call for aggressive and legal interrogations. They feel that by tying the hands of our troops and interrogators limiting them to aggressive conversations gives us "Moral High Ground." We can show the world that we are soft and most likely not obtain the necessary information needed to prevent the next terrorist attack or save the lives of our brave troops. But, we have the “Moral High Ground.”

Sherman did not worry about “Moral High Ground” in his march through the South. We didn’t worry about "Moral High Ground" when we fire bombed Dresden and dropped the first Atomic Bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, bringing the enemy at that time to their knees and bringing an end to the bloody conflict of World War Two. Both countries now live in peace after their oppressive leaders of the time failed to conquer the world.

We are dealing with a brutal and bloody enemy that really doesn’t give a hoot about “Moral High Ground,” only forcing the world to submit to their radical control. It is submission or death, their choice.

Senator McCain, and others, you may walk around today, puffing out your chests and bragging about how you brought “Moral High Ground” back to this fight. Unfortunately, Moral High Ground will never deflect bullets, stop shrapnel from an i.e.d., arm against a sharpened machete or encourage terrorists to stop fighting to enslave the world under their perverted view of Islam.

The death of each and every Soldier, Sailor, Airman or Marine, journalist and innocent civilian that dies because we were unable to extract the needed information to prevent terrorist attacks and eventually bring this fight to an end, will be on your hands.

You may feel you have the “Moral High Ground,” but you also have “Bloody Hands.”

Lew done wroted:

"Colin Powell says the world's beginning to doubt the moral basis of our fight against terrorism."

Oh. Colin Powell says that, does he? There is only Colin Powell's weak little voice. Is that it, you poor, pathetic masturbator? Listen up: At least 2/3 of the entire population of the United States know for a fact that neither you nor your criminal president nor any of the other murdering, criminal wrong-wing "bloggers" on the internet who endorse torture and support the criminal George W. Bush have any moral basis whatsoever for your "fight against terrorism." You are simply a big bunch of voter-fraud thugs who never got enough love and you know it. All anyone has to do is read the crap you pompous masturbators write: "Al Qaeda doesn't observe the Geneva Convention and Abu Ghraib is a thousand times better than anything al Qaeda could or should hope for, considering that they chop our heads off" or some other happy horseshit. You call that a "moral compass"? Your entire "philosophy" is based on some whiney, phoney "He hit me first, mom," melodramatic slobber. You all write like bunch of perverts and drunks who are completely at sea when it comes to morality. Why don't you perverts and drunks move back to Bangkok or the Dominican Republic or Pluto or whatever non-planet you came from? You really hate America and everybody knows it.

Finally, only creeps like you could believe that a half-assed group of nuts like al-Qaeda could take over and establish control of Iraq when 130,000 well-fed, well-trained, well-paid [yeah, right] members of America's best and brightest "patriots"--"patriots" who are also supplied with all the depleted uranium bombs, bullets and Beanie Babies they could possibly want--can't establish control in Iraq?

Think, f'chrissake.

PS where's Osama? Huh? And why don't you use your time more productively and look into a fellow named Bob Ney. Find out what he plead guilty to and who he is.

Spoken like a true leftist twit, Barbie. You spew out venom against Bush and support those that encourage slaughter not only of our citizens, but of theirs as well.

Of course, it never occurs to you that your head is up your ass and that the next 9/11 may be you. Of course not. You sing Kumbaya and embrace America's enemies.

Ordinarily I'd delete a post as yours, but I think I will leave it up so anyone dropping by can see the lack of intelligence, lack of patriotism and lack of honor the left displays as well as how you speak ill towrds a Veteran. You know us Veterans, nearly 80% of us oppose morons like you, even though we fought to give you the right to be such an idiot.

Thanks again, Barbie, you are the epitome of America's leftist moonbats and it shows.
