The Fools are going to get us all killed

Lets start with some good words from a man who saw a storm coming.

"You were given the choice between war and dishonor. You chose dishonor and you will have war." -- Churchill's remark after Chamberlain returned from signing the Munich Pact with Hitler

Now lets look at the words and beliefs of those that are running the country and say that what they represent is a "MANDATE" we gave them.

First Henry Nostralitus Waxman
Rep. Henry Waxman, D-Calif., said, "What we now have in Iraq is a defeat. We cannot achieve the illusions of the Bush administration that we will be able to create a stable unified liberal democracy in Iraq that is pro-American ... Instead, we have sectarian fighting, death squads and a disabled Middle East that threatens to be engulfed by the nightmare that we have unleashed."

WASHINGTON -- Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, the early front-runner for the Democratic presidential nomination, has called for a 90-day deadline to start pulling American troops from Iraq. "Now it's time to say the redeployment should start in 90 days or the Congress will revoke authorization for this war," the New York senator said in a video on her campaign Web site, repeating a point included in a bill she introduced Friday.Clinton's bill would cap the number of troops in Iraq at the Jan. 1 level, prior to Bush's decision to add 21,500 to the approximately 130,000 soldiers already there. Clinton's bill would require congressional authorization to exceed her proposed cap on U.S. soldiers in Iraq. "If George Bush doesn't end the war before he leaves office, when I'm president, I will," Clinton said in the video.

What the Vietnamese Thought
Most anti-Communist Vietnamese believe that the United States was right when supporting the Republic of Vietnam with aid and soldiers. However, the American and the Republic of Vietnam (RVN) governments have lost the war because Washington was lacking in resolution, while South Vietnamese leaders were relying too much on American support and believed that Washington would never accept the dishonor of a total defeat. Fast forward to today, and Chuck Schumer:
Democrats said Saturday they'll drop efforts to pass a non-binding resolution opposing President Bush's troop buildup in Iraq and instead will offer a flurry of anti-war legislation "just like in the days of Vietnam."...Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., said Democrats would be "relentless." "There will be resolution after resolution, amendment after amendment . . . just like in the days of Vietnam," Schumer said. "The pressure will mount, the president will find he has no strategy, he will have to change his strategy and the vast majority of our troops will be taken out of harm's way and come home."The Democrats and the media are having a great time reliving their glory days, the Vietnam War. They proved then, very successfully, that it wasn't necessary for the military to lose a war -- that Congress could do it for them.

This time, however, it's a different enemy. What is lost in the debate is that al-Qaida has made this the central front in their war with us. I happen to think that it's best that we fight them there than here. After we leave, and just as Lebanon and Somalia were used by Osama bin Laden as evidence of the "paper tiger" that is the United States, this "defeat", as Henry Waxman and the Democrats have already called it, will be an enormous boost to our enemies, emboldening them even further.

In an interview yesterday with, a Web site for a coalition of anti-war groups, Mr. Murtha, who chairs the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Defense, explained that by placing conditions on $93.4 billion in new combat funds, he would make be able to effectively stop the troops in their tracks. "They won't be able to continue. They won't be able to do the deployment. They won't have the equipment, they don't have the training and they won't be able to do the work. There's no question in my mind," Mr. Murtha said. "We will set benchmarks for readiness," a top Democratic leadership aide told the nonpartisan Web site, which summarized the Democrats' strategy this way: "If enacted, these provisions would have the effect of limiting the number of troops available for the Bush surge plan, while blunting the GOP charge that Democrats are cutting funding for the troops in Iraq." Aside from doing severe damage to the war effort in Iraq, the Democrats' political strategy to cripple the war effort by attaching thousands of legislative strings to war funding may also be unconstitutional.

Remember America this is the MANDATE YOU VOTED FOR!
