Makes a Big Difference Who's Doin' the Presidentin', I Guess

Thanks to kos for these telling quotations from the Ruling Class. Only difference is that they're talking about their favorite incarnation of Satan, Bill Clinton, and the war was in Bosnia. A war in which we lost exactly fucking ZERO troops, you hypocritical assfuck Nazi motherfuckers.

"You can support the troops but not the president."

--Rep Tom Delay (R-TX)

"Well, I just think it's a bad idea. What's going to happen is they're going to be over there for 10, 15, maybe 20 years."
--Joe Scarborough (R-FL)

"Explain to the mothers and fathers of American servicemen that may come home in body bags why their son or daughter have to give up their life?"
--Sean Hannity, Fox News, 4/6/99

"[The] President . . . is once again releasing American military might on a foreign country with an ill-defined objective and no exit strategy. He has yet to tell the Congress how much this operation will cost. And he has not informed our nation's armed forces about how long they will be away from home. These strikes do not make for a sound foreign policy."
--Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA)

"American foreign policy is now one huge big mystery. Simply put, the administration is trying to lead the world with a feel-good foreign policy."
--Rep Tom Delay (R-TX)

"If we are going to commit American troops, we must be certain they have a clear mission, an achievable goal and an exit strategy."
--Karen Hughes, speaking on behalf of George W Bush

"I had doubts about the bombing campaign from the beginning . . I didn't think we had done enough in the diplomatic area."
--Senator Trent Lott (R-MS)

"I cannot support a failed foreign policy. History teaches us that it is often easier to make war than peace. This administration is just learning that lesson right now. The President began this mission with very vague objectives and lots of unanswered questions. A month later, these questions are still unanswered. There are no clarified rules of engagement. There is no timetable. There is no legitimate definition of victory. There is no contingency plan for mission creep. There is no clear funding program. There is no agenda to bolster our over-extended military. There is no explanation defining what vital national interests are at stake. There was no strategic plan for war when the President started this thing, and there still is no plan today"
--Rep Tom Delay (R-TX)

"Victory means exit strategy, and it's important for the President to explain to us what the exit strategy is."
--Governor George W. Bush (R-TX)

All of these are authentic Republican suckass hypocritical assbreath motherfucking quotations from the sorry who-the-fuck-do-they-fucking-think-they-are bastards who are now taking exactly the opposite approach, now that their Smirking-Jack Horse-Fluffing Assclown is the one doin' all that hard-work presidentin'.

It makes me fucking sick. Literally fucking sick.

What is wrong with this country that we would even think of allowing this horseshit to take place?

What is wrong with the media that they would let this go unremarked?

Jesus Christ, wake the fuck up, people!!!

I am sorry you feel this way. I served a year in Iraq and I will go again when I am called. It is nothing like Vietnam and we all pay a price for freedom. I respect your service in Vietnam but each war has its own characteristics and I wholeheartedly disagree with pulling out the troops.

Well, I respect your service and your opinion, even though I disagree with it just about 100%.
From your photo and your bio, I respectfully submit that you really have no idea what Vietnam was like, having only read about in history class or watched some pathetic mockumentary on television -- or worse yet, seen it through the eyes of some punk filmmaker who also was never there.
I was in Vietnam, and I had friends who died there, whose names are on that granite slab in DC, who died for a pack of lies just as people are dying in Iraq.
We will eventually get out of Iraq the same way we got out of Vietnam--with our tails between our legs, 57000 dead, and for what?
"Victory" is no more possible in Iraq than it was in Vietnam. The only thing ahead of us is more dying and death and shattered families, and I believe that the sooner we "declare a victory and get out", the better off everyone will be.
Iraq under Saddam Hussein had NOTHING to do with 9-11 and NOTHING to do with Osama bin Laden. It had no weapons of mass destruction, no nuclear program, no biological weapons program, no delivery system, not even those dreaded drone airplanes that we were threatened with delivering that smoking-gun-mushroom-cloud. In short it had nothing nothing nothing that could justify our invasion of a sovereign nation.
The real enemy, meanwhile, Osama bin Laden, has been on the loose for 1436 days with no capture in sight.
For a little historical perspective, it was only 1347 days from Pearl Harbor to the end of WWII.
I am sorry that you are under the delusion that going to Iraq is somehow paying a price for freedom. It is not -- it is paying a price for the goddamn business deals of the Bush Crime Family.

Vietnam was wet hot, Iraq is dry and hot, otherwise same, same.

War Stories

You can always hear the people who are willing to sacrifice somebody else's life. They're plenty loud and they talk all the time. You can find them in the churches and schools and newspapers and legislatures and congress. That's their business. They sound wonderful. Death before dishonor. This ground sanctified by blood. These men who died so gloriously. They shall not have died in vain. Our noble dead.


But what do the dead say?

Did anybody ever come back from the dead any single one of the millions who got killed did any of them ever come back and say by god I'm glad I'm dead because death is better than dishonor? Did they say I'm glad I died to make the world safe for democracy? Did they say I like death better than losing liberty? Did any of them ever say it's good to think I got my guts blown out for the honor of my country? Did any of them ever say look at me I'm dead but I died for decency and that's better than being alive?
