And Now A Word From Our Sponsor...

Greetings Earthlings.

It's your friend Snotglob here with something special.

Remulak told me that I need to start bringing in some moolah to pay off my rather horrendous gambling debts, so I'm selling advertising space on my blog posts.

Don't worry my liberal friends. I'm only going to sell ad-space for politically correct and liberal messages like this one...
We Are The

We Don't Approve This Message

Why should you vote for the Democrats?

The answers are both subtle, com
plex, and nuanced.

Vote Democrat if you believe...
Peace is achieved when one side quits and goes home before winning because you know deep down that no one will attack us after we show weakness
People must stand up for what they believe in, then back down once they scored points with their fund-raisers
That only the other party participates in a 'culture of corruption'

That America's national security resources are b
etter spent worshipping Al Gore than keeping people from killing us, because nobody really wants to kill us, no matter what they say and do

That lying in order to make the military and the Bush administration look bad in wartime is essential for the future of this country

So remember, if you believe what we believe you must be a Democrat

Or we'll take your right to vote away

One of your new liberal readers just dropping by for a laugh!

I have a great idea: Maybe we could draft Remulak “Butthead” Moxargon and his Group to help us out in Iraq. They seem to be more on George Bush’s level anyway. Who needs diplomacy when you’ve got these galactic goobers ready to fight.

In all seriousness, George Bush, the most ideologically-driven and politically calculating president in American history, wants Americans to believe that he has suddenly discovered a moral high ground from which to make grand declarations about how he must maintain the occupation of Iraq. Bush has made his position clear: Democrats, many of whom rightly argued four years ago that going to war in Iraq would be the huge mistake it has turned out to be, and who have since been far ahead of the White House in identifying the nature of the crisis that has since developed, are now to be dismissed as the players of political games when they advocate for a strategy that would begin bringing US troops home from the conflict on a schedule beginning in October. Don’t take the Democrats word for it let’s go to the military:

Two retired Generals who led troops in Iraq expressed outrage at the President's veto of the U.S. Troop Readiness, Veterans' Health, and Iraq Accountability Act:

The President vetoed our troops and the American people. His stubborn commitment to a failed strategy in Iraq is incomprehensible. He committed our great military to a failed strategy in violation of basic principles of war. His failure to mobilize the nation to defeat world wide Islamic extremism is tragic. We deserve more from our commander-in-chief and his administration.
--Maj. Gen. John Batiste, USA, Ret.

This administration and the previously Republican controlled legislature have been the most caustic agents against America's Armed Forces in memory. Less than a year ago, the Republicans imposed great hardship on the Army and Marine Corps by their failure to pass a necessary funding language. This time, the President of the United States is holding our Soldiers hostage to his ego. More than ever apparent, only the Army and the Marine Corps are at war - alone, without their President's support.
--Maj. Gen. Paul Eaton, USA, Ret.

Dear Mr. President,

Today, in your veto message regarding the bipartisan legislation just passed on Operation Iraqi Freedom, you asserted that you so decided because you listen to your commanders on the ground.

Respectfully, as your former commander on the ground, your administration did not listen to our best advice. In fact, a number of my fellow Generals were forced out of their jobs, because they did not tell you what you wanted to hear -- most notably General Eric Shinseki, whose foresight regarding troop levels was advice you rejected, at our troops' peril.

The legislation you vetoed today represented a course of action that is long overdue. This war can no longer be won by the military alone. We must bring to bear the entire array of national power - military, diplomatic and economic. The situation demands a surge in diplomacy, and pressure on the Iraqi government to fix its internal affairs. Further, the Army and Marine Corps are on the verge of breaking - or have been broken already - by the length and intensity of this war. This tempo is not sustainable - and you have failed to grow the ground forces to meet national security needs. We must begin the process of bringing troops home, and repairing and growing our military, if we are ever to have a combat-ready force for the long war on terror ahead of us.

The bill you rejected today sets benchmarks for success that the Iraqis would have to meet, and puts us on a course to redeploy our troops. It stresses the need for sending troops into battle only when they are rested, trained and equipped. In my view, and in the view of many others in the military that I know, that is the best course of action for our security.

As someone who served this nation for decades, I have the utmost respect for the office you hold. However, as a man of conscience, I could not sit idly by as you told the American people today that your veto was based on the recommendations of military men. Your administration ignored the advice of our military's finest minds before, and I see no evidence that you are listening to them now.

I urge you to reconsider your position, and work with Congress to pass a bill that achieves the goals laid out above.


Major General Paul D. Eaton, USA, Retired
