Senator Allen, Tells Us Again Why We Went to War?!?
Please, dear Sen. George Allen, do tell Virginians why we invaded Iraq!
There were no weapons of mass destruction; there were no ties to Al-Qaeda; there is no democracy, but instead a tragic Civil War; and now we learn that the war in Iraq has "made the overall terrorism problem worse."
The New York Times front-pages what some of us suspected long, long ago; things are worst now than before 9/11. "American intelligence agencies" conclude that we are less safe because of Bush's war on terror.
So the White House and Republicans in Congress are lying to the American public, well what else is new?
[A] classified National Intelligence Estimate attributes a more direct role to the Iraq war in fueling radicalism than that presented either in recent White House documents or in a report released Wednesday by the House Intelligence Committee, according to several officials in Washington involved in preparing the assessment or who have read the final document.
An opening section of the report, “Indicators of the Spread of the Global Jihadist Movement,” cites the Iraq war as a reason for the diffusion of jihad ideology. The report “says that the Iraq war has made the overall terrorism problem worse,” said one American intelligence official.Now ain't you guys glad we've spent over $300 billion and counting. The truly sad thing about this meaningless war of choice is that 2700 brave American soldiers needlessly lost their lives.
Oh yea, it's accountability time. Throw every last bum out; and when '08 rolls around, throw out the folks who won in '02 playing the terror trump card and scaring poor Americans into voting for their sorry asses; this love dedication especially goes out to that inbred lying GOP bastard, Sen. Saxby Chambliss of Georgia.
Miller staunchly supports Webb, as evidenced by his attendance at Webb's fundraiser and the great media quote slamming Allen.
Mr. Miller was a worthy opponent, but there is no way in hell he would be at the nipping at the heels of Allen.
Mr. Webb supports Reagan, the man who finally kicked the neocons during his second term and actually wasn't too bad of a president as time went on.
If you recall, Ed Meese and that crowd, thanks to Nancy, were gone by the second term.
Of course, it's your privilege to sulk and stay home, but between the phony cowboy and a real leader who voiced his opposition to Iraq at risk to his reputation, that's what I call a man with principles.
Webb defended a poor black soldier who'd been charged with war crimes after only a few weeks in Vietnam; and eventually the poor guy killed himself; but Webb stuck to the case and eventually won -- even if only posthumously.
Knowing Webb as I do, he's not your typical politician; he is not going to be bought by the left or the right; and he will always do what he thinks is right, and from his past history, he's got a pretty good track record of calling it accurately.
Go vote for Webb; he's the absolute cream of the crop as a candidate. Rarely does one come along so well qualified, moral, spiritually and intellectually.
