Amen sister. The war they are talking about is a war of their making and which does not serve our national security. Their's is a religious war seeking to paint all Islam as the enemy. A wholly discretionary war when all war should be of a last resort. Their vision of the future is quite bleak indeed. Their management of this war has clearly established that they are incapable and undeserving of continued leadership.

And defeating the Webb amendment shows that they don't support the troops, their morale, or their families. The fallacy of their arguments have come home to roost. Lets see where they are next year at this time when political realities of the next election smack them upside the head. The wind created by the multitude of flip flops should keep us cool anyway. But in the meantime our forces are dying in a self defeating cause. It ain't right.

so sadly true Sisyphus .

did you see the IdiotDecider say at his 4th of july speech some crap like : "...911/Iraq , 911/Iraq ... they wanna force us to follow THEIR Religion and stop us from praying as WE want...well,,,they're NOT gonna stop US...911/Iraq..." WOW, the fool just closed the circle on his early W-ar comment: "...this is a Crusade..." well, that makes it Official:

It's. A. Holy. Crusade. Folks.

WHOOPIE ... start kicking your kids and firing AK-47s over their heads Today to toughen them up for the HolyBush!t fight tomorrow !

me thinks the anti-Constitutional Religionists who believe that bush is "...sent by godtt..." are Hoping to jump-start Armageddon so's they can go see their Lord early. the ONLY problem? if Jesus EVER set eyes on them they'd burn in Hell faster than a windy brushfire for their evil, twisted actions,,,

Cameron,

I am not sure if you are referring to my post or the comment preceding yours. In any case, I don't blame Bush for everything.

There's really no need. History will judge him, plus there's *plenty* of blame to go around.

Saludos,

It was the comment preceding mine. It was so over the top it just had to be satire.

So this is Bill Sali’s vision of America. A country perpetually at war for generations to come. A war that’s costing us hundreds of lives and over $100 billion per year. $100 billion. For camparison, using the President’s FY 2008 budget proposal, that’s:

Five times the budget for the Department of Agriculture

Fifteen times the budget for the Department of Commerce

Nearly four times the budget for the Department of Education

About eight times the budget for the Department of Energy

About six times the budget for Homeland Security

About twenty times the budget for the Department of the Interior

Ten times the budget for the Department of Justice

And nearly 23 times what it costs for the entire Legislative branch of the US Government.

Bill Sali wants this to happen every year, ad infinitum. Or until America is bankrupt, whichever happens first. This is the future Bill Sali wants for his children’s children. Well, it isn’t one I want for mine.

If we learned nothing else from Vietnam, we learned that wars in this era of mankind are not won by guns, bombs and bullets. World War II, the war of fronts and final victories, is in our history. If we want a peaceful future, we'll have to achieve it by means other than conquest.
