Losing Wars For Dhimmis

Let’s do a little backtracking on recent history here for a minute. Let’s see if we can define how to lose a war, help bring America to its knees, create ugly partisan divide in the nation, throw an entire country in the Middle East to the wolves and do it all in just twenty steps ....

(1) Saddam Hussein was a pain in the butt and was disrupting the entire region with war after war.

(2) He built a nuclear plant that the Israelis took out.

(3) He persisted in attempts to obtain more and deadlier weapons (also erferred to as WMD).

(4) He kicked UN inspectors out of Iraq further raising fears around the world that he was still hiding or procuring WMD’s.

(5) Joe Wilson is a colossal asshole and a Democratic Party stooge who tried to cover for Saddam.

(6) The President went to Congress and the United Nations and said “why don’t we take Saddam out of the picture before he makes any more trouble.”

(7) The UN hedged before finally halfway agreeing - because they knew it would dry up their oil-for-food scam that they had going with Saddam.

(8) Congress agreed with the President to authorize and fund the war to remove Saddam and clean up the cesspit in Iraq.

(9) The war was over in a few months and Democrats in Congress began to worry that Bush was too popular and successful.

(10) Democrats began whining about missing WMD’s to encourage hatred of Bush and divisiveness in the US.

(11) The NY TIMES and other liberal media outlets began a campaign to publicize secret war plans to aid the terrorists rushing to Iraq for a piece of the action while Democrats secretly cheered on the “insurgents” as friends and allies in the War On Bush.

(12) The United Nations set up shop in Baghdad and then ran away after the first bomb.

(13) Democrats in Congress repeatedly call Pentagon officials in for grilling sessions, publicly televised of course, to whine, complain and criticize the cleanup action in Iraq.

(14) Iraqis hold first free elections ever, electing a new Parliament and democratic leaders but the NY TIMES and the liberal media are too busy covering abuses at Abu Ghraib Prison to notice.

(15) Progress being made in Iraq as terrorists die by the hundreds and their leaders killed or captured and sent to Guantanamo for interrogation which is criticized by the liberal media, taken to the Supreme Court by Bush-bashers but reveals tons of information on the terrorists and their organization and future plans which is used to stop dozens of planned attacks around the world, according to CIA director Tenet - a Clinton appointee.

(16) Democrats nominate a lame, pitiful excuse for a human being and acknowledged gigolo to run against Bush in 2004 and voters sneer and laugh.

(17) Democrats go into panic mode and using every dirty, underhanded trick in the book to nudge an election their way in 2006 barely manage to recapture the House and Senate. The Watergate crew enviously watches the Donks go far beyond anything they ever thought of.

(18) Democrats immediately set about surrendering the war in Iraq, proposing cutting off funding for troops and setting a timetable so the enemy will know when we plan to run up the white flag and flee back home leaving the Iraqis to die at the hands of murdering thugs.

(19) Bush says “not so fast” and slaps veto on Democrats.

(20) Democrats repond by telling Bush that if he is going to be all “mean and naughty” that they are going to withdraw their authorization for the war just when things are starting to get better because they know success in Iraq means they will be hosed in the 2008 elections and forever after known as the Party of Treason, Lies, Back-Stabbing, anti-American bastards.

There. Does that about sum it up?

Clinton Proposes Vote to Reverse Authorizing War
WASHINGTON (NY TIMES) - May 4, 2007

imageimageSenator Hillary Rodham Clinton proposed Thursday that Congress repeal the authority it gave President Bush in 2002 to invade Iraq, injecting presidential politics into the Congressional debate over financing the war.

Mrs. Clinton’s proposal brings her full circle on Iraq — she supported the war measure five years ago — and it sharpens her own political positioning at a time when Democrats are vying to confront the White House.

“It is time to reverse the failed policies of President Bush and to end this war as soon as possible,” Mrs. Clinton said as she joined Senator Robert C. Byrd, Democrat of West Virginia, in calling for a vote to end the authority as of Oct. 11, the fifth anniversary of the original vote.

Her stance emerged just as Congressional leaders and the White House opened delicate negotiations over a new war-financing measure to replace the one that Mr. Bush vetoed Tuesday.

Even if Mrs. Clinton and Mr. Byrd succeed in their effort, it is not clear whether President Bush would have to withdraw troops, or if he could resist by claiming that Congress cannot withdraw its earlier authorization but instead has to deny money for the war to achieve that result.

The question could prompt a constitutional debate over war powers that only the federal courts could resolve. Mostly, Mrs. Clinton appeared to be trying to claim a new leadership position among the Democratic presidential candidates against the war in Iraq.

She supported the war early on, but she has turned into a staunch critic of the administration’s performance on Iraq. She has been saying that she granted Mr. Bush the authority to go to war based on intelligence reports at the time, but that the reports have since proved wrong.

Now, her advisers say, a vote to withdraw authorization would make plain to antiwar and liberal Democrats that she was repudiating her 2002 vote. The hope among her aides was that demands by antiwar voters for her to apologize for her vote would be rendered moot.

Mrs. Clinton’s vote for the original authorization has been a persistent problem in her presidential bid when contrasted with the positions of other Democratic contenders.

Former Senator John Edwards has repudiated his vote for the war. After Mr. Byrd and Mrs. Clinton announced their plan, Mr. Edwards quickly put out a statement urging Congress to focus on withdrawing troops and not revoking the 2002 authorization.

“Congress should stand its ground and not back down to him,” Mr. Edwards said. “They should send him the same bill he just vetoed, one that supports our troops, ends the war and brings them home.”

Mrs. Clinton pointedly noted that she voted in 2002 to put a one-year limit on Mr. Bush’s war authority, an effort led by Mr. Byrd that failed. Mr. Edwards had opposed that limit.

Senator Barack Obama of Illinois, who was not in Congress at the time of the vote, cites his consistent opposition to the war. Mr. Obama issued a statement on Thursday evening indicating that he would support the effort by Mrs. Clinton and Mr. Byrd.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
