History Hurts

Maybe one of my evil liberal friends will be able to explain the popularity of the ejaculative phrase


...It is as if in 1942....


that seems to be so popular amongst the liberal defenders of the president's policy to use the US Military to restore the Iraqi Wetlands.

I ran into that buzz phrase again this morning when God Decided that I had watched way too much news this morning with breakfast. I stumbled onto the current CSPAN coverage of the Rally to Honor Military Families and some draft dodger was up there trying to explain his posuer posture on the current WhateverOnWhomever and why the so called anti-war types are Whatever.

I can understand that many of you liberals were not aware which military style operations congress was funding on 09/10/2001 and so may find that there has been some change in the number and types of military style operations at home and abroad. But, uh, if folks really think that majikally on 09/11/2001 the whole world changed and majikally we had some how moved into the More@war than ever before mode. And there was that really cute media blitz about Mission Accomplished with the president doing his end zone dance while all gussied up in a military style uniform...

Shouldn't the Analogy be


...It is as if in the fall of 1945 after the surrender of japan....


you know, since, well, gosh all of those War Bond Drives had been so successful at shifting the economy onto a war footing, after the president had gone to the Well of Congress to request an unequivocal declaration of war...

Oh hold it, the current administration did not ask for an actual unequivocal declaration of war from congress, nor has he had the time to support the War Bond Drives which he has not asked for....

So how exactly do you liberals do these sorts of things?

I mean especially while congress is seriously considering closing all of those military bases that are so not required for the current WhateverOnWhomever....

Or is the problem amongst all of you whiney civilian types that you are not sure how terrorised you should feel about the fact that you are in the rear with the beer. Well at least the whiney civilian types who were at one time so excited about the fact that the military was going to go do a job that the whiney civilian types were not RealMen[dm] enough to go and do for themselves, and wanted girls like Pfc. Lynndie England to do for them.

Also will you sort out how exactly one can have an anti-war movement when the nation is no more at war than it had been when you evil liberals decided to persecute, and impeach, the last president who was bombing iraq to win.

Equally annoying, why are all of these draft candidates who play act at being Pro-War so "Pro-War" when the nation is no more at war than under the Clinton/Bush/Reagan/Carter administrations, you know, those liberal white house regimes the president recently punked for not being cool enough to do the job right.

So will you whiney civilians please police up your stragglers and work out which side of what you want to belong on, with, around or about. I mean if you want to support the veteran's community, it might help if you worked out which veteran's community and what exactly y'all be thinking that you are honoring...
