Are There Any ‘Men’ Left In Washington?

July 10, 2007

A very poignant line from the two-part mini-series that aired on ABC in September 2006 serves as an apt reminder of where we are as a free nation on the brink of yet another surrender to our enemy and abandonment of yet another struggling ally. Slowly, the forces of the hate America left are politicizing the current effort at defeating another enemy desiring the destruction of our free society.

Democrats have long demanded a “new direction,” or a “new strategy” in the War on Terror, Iraq Theater. President Bush gave us one when he brought General David Petraeus on board as Iraqi Theater Commander and our Senate voted for his acceptance, unanimously. About this same time, Democrats like Harry Reid started going public with their catcalls of “the war is lost.” Sending in reinforcements to give General Petraeus the tools he needed to provide the security needed to keep a free Iraq moving forward was labeled first a “surge” then an “escalation,” setting the scene for the eventual defeat Democrats desire.

Throughout we keep hearing “no exit strategy,” “no end in sight,” or “end the war.” Nowhere have we heard any of the Democrats ever utter the words, “win” or “Victory.” Not once have they ever spoken of winning this war, just do whatever they can to oppose it and cause the defeat of America, while a Republican is in office.

As we begin hearing reports of Iraqi citizens pour out to fight al Qaeda, we now see an increased push by defeatist Democrats to negate that and to surrender before any good effects can be shown.

Today, Speakerette and supreme America hater, Nancy Pelosi released a statement of Six Months After Iraq Escalation, Still No End in Sight or a Clear Exit Strategy. In April, shortly after General Petraeus took Command, he returned to give a briefing to the House and Senate on early progress, as the Troop Reinforcements was getting under way. Pelosi was one of those Democrats that decided they were too busy to meet with the General, desiring to ignore any progress.

Are they afraid to hear of or admit to progress? No, they wish to ignore any so they can paint the war as a failure and bring about America’s embarrassing defeat, all so they can grab political power for good, setting up their vision of reinstating the failed Soviet Union, but in America. It is all a calculated effort to force failure in this fight, in my opinion. Political power comes well before the safety of American citizens, to these aging wealthy hippies.

In the run up to the 2006 elections, San Fran Nan released a booklet titled “A New Direction for America.” On page 10 of that booklet, appears the claim that Democrats would “Double the size of our Special Forces, increase our human intelligence capabilities, and ensure our intelligence is free from political pressure.” Yet, they fabricate, ignore and exaggerate tough goings and refuse to acknowledge any progress. Every step has been to encourage citizens to believe failure is the only option and discourage any who might desire to join the Military. Then, they decry that recruiting goals may be missed. Where has she ever made any effort at keeping any promises she made?

Pelosi isn’t alone, though. Like I said, this is a concerted and calculated effort from the Democrat Party as a whole. As Feds warn of 'spectacular attacks' from al Qaeda this summer are very likely, Democrats are stepping up the pressure on weak and spineless Republicans to oppose the war effort. Rep. John Larson (D-Conn.) claims, “Democrats have 37 Democratic-sponsored Iraq bills to choose from to create ‘a steady drumbeat’ of votes voicing disapproval of Bush’s handling of the war.” Of course, no Democrat ever joins in with anything towards the war except, “cut and run.” Victory and Win are no longer in the vocabulary of the Democrat Party.

Senate Democrat Harry Reid began his drone of “the war is lost” in April, long before any of the reinforcements reached full strength in mid-June of this year. He continues that cry today. He too was too busy to meet with General Petraeus when he gave the early assessment of the Troop Reinforcement.

Senator Clinton has fully embraced the anti-war arm of the defeatist Democrats now as she calls out, "Our message to the President is clear. It is time to begin ending this war -- not next year, not next month -- but today.” Note: it isn’t ever time to a Democrat to “Win this war,” just end it.

Among her illustrious plans are “focusing on aid efforts that put money in the hands of the Iraqi people.” Typical of a Democrat to think that throwing money is a way out. Did it ever occur to the junior Senator that once they succeed in abandoning Iraq to Al Qaeda that terrorists, to aid in obtaining weapons and logistics to carry out the next attack on America, would steal monies given to the people? No, they fail to realize that. September 11 taught them nothing, as all the attacks during her husband’s administration and before has failed to wake them up to the dangers to our way of life.

As Democrats point to Bush’s failure being reflected in his low approval numbers, they ignore and deflect that their numbers are the lowest in a decade, lower than even President Bush’s. Apparently assigning their unpopularity to Iraq and furthering their quest for absolute power, they begin this push to force America into another defeat at the hands of terrorists.

Their timing just may be catastrophic for the nation as recent reports indicate the strong possibility of another spectacular attack may possibly be coming our way. Of course, should President Bush’s anti-terror efforts prevent one, Democrats will surely cry there never was a threat. Should Al Qaeda succeed, Democrats will cry that Bush failed to prevent it, never acknowledging their own shortcomings and failure to secure America.

Missing or clearly minimized by defeatist Democrats and their followers are Al Qaeda’s own claim of Iraq is the Central Front of this war. It is now where they have taken their stand to defeat America, with the help of Americas Defeatist Democrats.

kloin said...

A lengthy post to show us that you are still pushing a rope.

LewWaters said...

LOL, kloin, over your head, as usual?

Lonsdale said...

Lew is a particularly hard case: a dead-ender, in short, who stubbornly sticks to his Revealed Truth even as reality rudely intrudes.

LewWaters said...

Sorry, lonsdale, but reality set in when Muslim extremists stormed our embassy in Tehran Iran in 1979.

When the U.S. Embassy was attacked in Beirut, Lebanon in 1983, killing 63.

When the Marine Barracks were attacked in Lebanon in 1983, killing 242 Americans and 58 French troops.

When a TWA flight was highjacked in 1985 and flown to Beirut where the passengers and crew were held for seventeen days with one hostage, a U.S. Navy Sailor, was murdered and his limp body tossed out onto the tarmac.

When the Achille Lauro was high jacked in 1985, resulting in the murder of an American Jewish wheelchair ridden passenger, Leon Klinghoffer.

When Pan Am flight 103 was blown up over Lockerbie, Scotland, killing all 259 on board, in 1988.

When the World Trade Center was bombed in 1993, resulting in 6 deaths and 1,000 injuries.

When President Bush (1) was targeted for assassination by Iraqi agents while visiting Kuwait in 1993.

When our forces in Mogadishu were ambushed and savagely murdered, resulting in 18 deaths and their bodies being drug through the streets in 1993.

When 2 U.S. Diplomats were murdered by unidentified gunmen in Karachi, Pakistan in 1995.

When a Saudi Military Installation in Riyadh was attacked, killing 1 U.S. Citizen, several foreign national employees of the U.S. and over 40 others in 1995.

When the Khobar Towers were attacked in Dahahran, killing 19 U.S. Military personnel and wounding 515 including 240 other U.S. Service personnel in 1996.

When a Palestinian gunman opened fire on tourists on the observation deck atop the Empire State Building in New York City, killing a Danish national and wounding visitors from the United States, Argentina, Switzerland, and France in 1997.

When the U.S. Embassies in Kenya and Tanzania were attacked almost simultaneously resulting 40 and injuring thousands in 1998.

When suicide bombers maneuvered a rubber raft laden with explosives next to the USS Cole and detonated their bombs, killing 17 Sailors and injuring 39 in 2000.

When we suffered the worst terrorist attack in history on our own homeland on September 11, 2001, when 19 suicide high jackers high jacked 4 jetliners and flew three of them into the World Trade Centers and Pentagon, with untold more stopped from completing their mission by the firm action of passengers and crew on United Flight 93, causing it to crash in Pennsylvania and decisive actions by President Bush (2) grounding all aircraft immediately in 2001.

With the defeat and retreat advocated by defeatist Democrats, it will be you all who have to see "reality rudely intruding" once again.

Someday, hopefully before it is too late, you will add your voice to ours and say 'enough is enough' and be prepared to fight for our freedom, once again. We can't always do it for you.

Bush Ties Nixon's Highest Disapproval Rating At 66 Percent.
--Gallup Poll

Congratulations. I new he could do it.

LewWaters said...

Funny you would even want to mention approval ratings, kloin. Considering that since Democrats took control of Congress, they have received an all time low rating, much lower than Bush's.

86% Disapprove of Congress

I knew they could do it too, and so fast!

Hard Cheese said...

George W. Bush is the worst President ever of the United States of America. He has all the flaws Nixon had plus several more and, and he does not have any of the International view and adeptness that Nixon showed to some degree.

kloin said...

Bush's low rating is all the more amazing since Nixon was not propped up by a Fox News or Regressive Right Wing bloggers

LewWaters said...

Sorry boys, but you'll never succeed in ridding Jimmuh Chatah of the handle of "worst president ever."

If you dug around a bit you'd find his signature into most of the Middle Easts problems today. Oh, you didn't know it was he who gave Saddam the green light for the war with Iran?

kloin, you really should watch Fox News instead of relying on the DailyKOS talking points. But what should I expect from someone who only wants their views broadcast and no one elses?

Hard Cheese said...

I certainly am not a Carter fan. But, unfortunately, next to Bush, Carter looks like Lincoln.

kloin said...

I forgot right wing radio. Why can't it keep Bush's head above water?

LewWaters said...

LOL, Cheesey, still trying to make Jimmuh a Saint? Won't work, son.

kloin, thank you for pointing out that there is no need for the left's tainted "Fairness Doctrine" for Talk Radio.

Now, does either one of you have anything relevant to this posts subject to say? Or, does the need to feed your BDS take precedent?

Lonsdale said...

So the mess in Iraq is Jimmy Carter's fault. Brilliant. Critical thinking at its best. Now sell this to over 70 per cent of Americans and Bush and the NeoCons are home free.

Hard Cheese said...

So Carter gave Saddam the green light to go to war with Iran. Then Reagan illegally sold missiles to Iran. Next Bush 1 through Ambassador April Glaspie gives Saddam the green light to invade Kuwait. Next Bush 1 invades Iraq but does not take Saddam out. Bush 2 invades Iraq and we know the rest. What a mess. No wonder the residents of the Mid-East are confused about US intentions. Oh and there is a picture of Rumsfeld shaking hands with Saddam in there somewhere.

LewWaters said...

Nice try, boys. I said it started under Cahtah and was continued.

BTW, you really should study history a bit more. The movement of arms to Iran was also initiated by Cahtah first.

If you are even interested in just how nefarious Cahtah really was, I documented much of it here, Right in a Left World: Jimmuh, What Have You Done?

Funny that he unfroze Iranian assests to help Iran while encouraging Saddam to attack them.

But, the quote from his National Security Adviser says even more when in regards to Afghanistan when he said, “According to the official version of history, CIA aid to the Mujahadeen began during 1980, that is to say, after the Soviet army invaded Afghanistan, 24 Dec 1979. But the reality, secretly guarded until now, is completely otherwise: Indeed, it was July 3, 1979 that President Carter signed the first directive for secret aid to the opponents of the pro-Soviet regime in Kabul. And that very day, I wrote a note to the president in which I explained to him that in my opinion this aid was going to induce a Soviet military intervention.”

Continuing, he added, “We didn't push the Russians to intervene, but we knowingly increased the probability that they would,” and “That secret operation was an excellent idea. It had the effect of drawing the Russians into the Afghan trap and you want me to regret it? The day that the Soviets officially crossed the border, I wrote to President Carter: We now have the opportunity of giving to the USSR its Vietnam War.”

Most disturbing coming out of Cahtah's National Security Adviser, Zbigniew Brzezinski, was, “What is most important to the history of the world? The Taliban or the collapse of the Soviet empire? Some stirred-up Moslems or the liberation of Central Europe and the end of the cold war?”

Yes, it all started under Cahtah and we are still dealing with it today.

You boys forget that history started long before January 20, 2001.

Rhubarb said...

I thought this is a right wing blog, but the only posters are Lew and lefties. What gives? I would like to hear from other right wingers.

LewWaters said...

Sorry, Rhubarb, I have no control over who visits. To be honest, the one to four ratio is a bit unfair, but I'm trying to take it easy on them.

kloin said...

Welcome Rhubarb. When 66% of the American people disapprove of the President and over 70% think the war is wrong, it is going to be reflected on the blogs. Just like Bush, Lews followers are dwindling. We lefties post to help Lew out. It can be disheartening to create a lengthy post and then have 0 response. We are only being good humanitarians. It is also fun to mess with Lew.

LewWaters said...

kloin, did you forget that 86% disapprove of the Democrat led Congress currently? Does it escape you that their approval rating is 20% LESS than Bush's?

Maybe Bush, Cheney et al should just resign and allow San Fran Nan to become POTUS for the next year and a half. Bet that would scare the pants off Al Qaeda, wouldn't it?

You could even get Mama Moonbat to take her place as House Speakerette.

Don't allow your BDS to get the better of you, son.

kloin said...

Well guys, it appears we are no longer welcome. Time to leave. Lonsdale and Hard Cheese do not forget that the communist cell meeting has been moved from 8:00 pm to 7:30 pm. Rhubarb, if you would like to attend you can get the details at wehateamericabecuaselewsaysso.com

LewWaters said...

Poor attempt at the usual leftwinged cut and run, kloin. But, up to you.

Stop by anytime you feel the need to be educated a little more.

Mark Harvey aka Snooper said...

Trolls. When they have no leadership capabilities, they must follow us conservatives around to prove their "udder" stupidity. It really isn't required of them. We already know.

Jimmy Carter will go down in history as the bloodiest and most worthless and the most horrid president the Democrats ever shat!
