Why Do Republican's Hate Freedom?

Senate Republicans sharply challenged President Bush's top military general and ambassador in Iraq on Tuesday in a blatant demonstration of misgivings within the GOP about the protracted war.

"Are we going to continue to invest blood and treasure at the same rate we're doing now? For what?" asked Sen. Chuck Hagel, R-Neb., who supports legislation setting a deadline to bring troops home.

The deep-seated doubt expressed at the hearing before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee reflected just how far Congress had come since the war began over four years ago. And Republican senators raised tough questions that rivaled those asked by Democratic presidential hopefuls on the panel.
...
Hagel asked Petraeus why his rosy view of conditions on the ground in Iraq differed from independent assessments on the war, as well as the views of some outspoken noncommissioned officers.

"We've got too many disconnects here, general," Hagel said.

At one point in the hearing, Petraeus said "there are 165,000 different views on the ground" and it can change daily.

The hearing fell on the anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks.

The Mormonists Are Coming, The Mormonists Are Coming!

And so, on page A3 of the Washington Post, appears my favorite political story of the day -- about the link between South Carolina's feared and (in some quarters) revered GOP hitman, J. Warren Tompkins, and the creation of an anti-Fred Thompson website called PhoneyFred.org. Tompkins is serving as Mitt Romney's top South Carolina adviser -- a role he has played often in his 25-year run as the most powerful non-elected man in Palmetto State politics. It was the role Tompkins played for George W. Bush in the Bush campaign's smackdown of John McCain in the 2000 South Carolina primary. For those who don't recall, that was the state where "mysterious" pro-Bush forces waged an under-the-radar slander campaign against McCain, who had just demolished Bush in the New Hampshire primary. The Bush campaign -- including Tompkins -- claimed no complicity in the slander, an assertion taken at face value by exactly no one with any experience in South Carolina GOP politics.

Oh ME! Oh MY!!!! How EVER could that have happened.

Oh yes, if it is not as clear, when the ProWarTypes go whining about the value of actual prior military service, or the need to listen to the military folks, yeah, remember this to them, and ask them why they are still hiding behind HanoiAnnie Coulter's Moistened Bint?

Who knows, one of these days the ProWarTypes may even come up with a way of explaining how they can hold their mutually exclusive thoughts at the very same time. You know, one of those Fancy Jedi Mind Tricks that they keep on playing on themselves
We are not the droids we are looking for?
We should be more the droids we meant to be.
Who knows, they may be able to achieve that moment of Zen.

No! No! The Other Mormonists are Coming.

he self-proclaimed "prophet" of a polygamous clan in an isolated desert enclave at the border of Utah and Arizona goes on trial this week in St. George, Utah, accused of arranging a marriage between an unwilling 14-year-old girl and her cousin.

Warren Jeffs, 51, is charged with two felony counts of being an accomplice to rape and could face life sentences for each charge. He has been in prison since his arrest in August 2006 after 15 months as a fugitive on the Federal Bureau of Investigation's Most Wanted list and has pleaded not guilty.

[ cf Trial of polygamist "prophet" to begin in Utah ]
Interesting....

Would this be a bad time to talk about serial polygomy as supported by the God Hating America Bashing State that allows 'divorce' because of the Gay HomoZeXual Zombie Pirate Canadianist Konspirakii? Or should we just majikally tolerate
Jane Wyman, who won an Oscar for her portrayal of a victimized deaf woman in the 1948 movie “Johnny Belinda,” played a fierce matriarch in the 1980s television series “Falcon Crest” and was the first wife of President Ronald Reagan, died Monday at her home in Rancho Mirage, Calif. She was 90.
[ cf Jane Wyman, 90, Star of Film and TV, Is Dead ( emphasis mine )
Rather than deal with the fact that she was always his one and only wife, and none of that Gay HomoZeXual Zombie Pirate Canadianism can change that fact!!!!!

While we are at it, did you ever notice that after the Reagans got divorced, the USofA stopped declaring war on their Enemies and embarked upon the failed liberal agenda of 'police actions'.

Hence we can all logically see the clear and compelling evidence that as long as the god hating america bashers embark upon their god hating america bashing, america will not be at war with the Forces Of Demonism and Unamericanism!!!!

Clearly we just stop the true evil doers in their evil liberal ways so that all americans will be safe from the growing threat of alienist alienism!!! And their little Zombies Too!!!

So are YOU doing your part to Privatize Zombie Hunting, or are you in Bed with the excessive Governmental Regulations!!!!

Why Does FactBasedCommunity Hate Freedom

Hum....
The U.S. military reported the deaths of nine soldiers Monday - including seven killed in a vehicle accident - and Iraq's prime minister said the nation's armed forces were not ready to fight without American help.

The statements - more Pentagon death notices and appeals for more time from Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki - echoed some of the key struggles in Washington as lawmakers began long-awaited hearings on U.S. strategies in Iraq.

Among the core issues is whether Iraq's leadership is moving fast enough at political reconciliation and assuming security responsibilities while U.S. troop deaths have risen to at least 3,772 in the 4 1/2-year war.

[ cf 9 GIs Die in Iraq, Military Reports ]
Oh Dear!!! Oh Me!!! Oh My!!!!

Then The God Haters go wonky with
US AMBASSADOR to Iraq Ryan Crocker has spent a lot of his life in the Middle East and he understands in exquisite detail the history of the tensions between Sunnis and Shiites in Iraq.

But as he and the US commander in Iraq, General David Petraeus, tried to explain why Congress should be heartened by events in Anbar, where Sunni tribal chiefs stopped firing at the American troops and joined them to tackle al-Qaeda, he revealed the weakness in his own assessment of progress on political reconciliation: the long history of dysfunction that the Iraqis must overcome.

JUST SAY NO!!!!! To History!!!

WE DO NOT NEED NO STINKING HISTORY BADGES!!!!

Reality is what the True Faith In The True Holy Trilogy Says It is!!!

Who Lost China????

Clearly one of the central questions we are all concerned about as Preator Petreaus Testifies before congress, on top of how to More Win in IraqVietnamIran, is who is Responsible for losing China, and what is the current plans to prevent it from falling to Communism!!!

Who's Ugly Memories of IraqVietnamIran???

As Joan Didion pointed out in her brilliant essay on Cheney in The New York Review of Books, it was Rumsfeld and Cheney who explained to Henry Kissinger, not usually slow on the draw when it came to the political impact of foreign policy, that Vietnam was likely to create a vast political backlash against the liberal McGovern forces. The two, relatively junior operators back then, were interested less in what had gone wrong in Vietnam than in getting some political benefit out of it. Cheney still speaks of Vietnam as a noble rather than a tragic endeavor, not that he felt at the time—with his five military deferments—that he needed to be part of that nobility.

Hum....

Now which REALLY are the lessons we are suppose to learn about Ever Winning IraqVietnamIran????

Ah yes, the EverQuest of the New Generation of Those who are unhindered by the history, or the facts, and merely wish to be the best Trinitarians, EVER!!!

All Hail THE HOLY TRINITY!!!! WarPresident, WarCzar, Praetor Petreaus!!!!

ANYTHING LESS AND THEY EXCEESSIVELY OVERREGULATE ZOMBIE HUNTING!!!!

What? We COULD have Known???

Still, it is hard for me to believe that anyone who knew anything about Vietnam, or for that matter the Algerian war, which directly followed Indochina for the French, couldn't see that going into Iraq was, in effect, punching our fist into the largest hornet's nest in the world. As in Vietnam, our military superiority is neutralized by political vulnerabilities. The borders are wide open. We operate quite predictably on marginal military intelligence. The adversary knows exactly where we are at all times, as we do not know where he is. Their weaponry fits an asymmetrical war, and they have the capacity to blend into the daily flow of Iraqi life, as we cannot. Our allies—the good Iraqi people the president likes to talk about—appear to be more and more ambivalent about the idea of a Christian, Caucasian liberation, and they do not seem to share many of our geopolitical goals.

WOW!!!!

Why GOSH, GOLLY, that smells so much like, oh, the University of Chicago Version of FM 3-24, where folks like this here David H. Petraeus guy is noting that the French had the fun filled film "the battle of algiers", and gosh, golly, this time around them thar folks is ready to learn from the French about their experience with CounterInsurgency.... Oh that's right, them thar books that are cited in the Bibliography, most of them is over 20 years OLD!!!!!!!

Could it be that the wankers wanking about 'how could anyone have known' should have been breathing OXYGEN rather than craming their heads up their Methane Ports where the lack of OXYGEN is underproductive at creating VIABLE NATIONAL POLICY!!!!

GOSH, GOLLY, GEE WHIZ!!!!

What if an informed electorate should be involved in the process of self government, if they are not willing to be constructively engaged in the actual national debate, based upon the actual national history, and not merely the sing-song of the religious fever about what could have been the actual national history, if it had been occuring at another time, on another planet, and with other actual founding fathers....

Thank GOD it is not like the ProWarCrowd have a Dog in this fight... let alone any humans....
