Warning: The following rant contains explicit language and is intended for mature audiences only. Literary discretion is advised.
I was reading the news report about our two young men that were killed in barbaric fashion in Iraq. It saddens me every time I read about one of our soldiers losing their life on the battlefield. First, because I don’t believe we should have been there in the first place. Second, because now that we their, I don’t believe our leadership in Washington provided a good plan for out troops.
We are fighting this war under the guise of a corporate philosophy of “Lean Management”, which I interpret as doing the most with the least amount of resources. That’s bull. If we want to win this thing then we should send 250,000 troops to Iraq. Establish security, wipe the insurgents off the face of the earth and get the reconstruction started in earnest.
The propaganda behind this war is sickening. “Eighty percent of Iraq of secure.” “We fight them over there so we don’t have to fight them here.” “The media is just reporting the bad news.” “The insurgency is in its last throes.” SHUT THE FUCK UP!!!
Fifty percent of Iraqis live in a battle zone. Who gives a shit how safe Death Valley is when Los Angeles is going to hell in a hand basket? Bush made a secret trip to Baghdad. The operative word is SECRET! It’s not safe enough for him to announce a trip. He stayed in the Green Zone. It’s not safe for journalist to venture outside of the Green Zone. You have to crush an insurgency not wait for it to fizzle out.
Then you have these politicians and talking heads on the left and right: “We need to set a date to bring our troops home.” “We need to stay the course.” “Bush doesn’t have plan to win the war.” “Liberals and the MSM embolden the enemy.” “This is a war against Islam.” SHUT THE FUCK UP!!!
The death of every single American soldier should piss us off. Every car bomb that kills innocent Iraqis should piss us off. Why? Because we know there is a way to win this and it’s called using overwhelming force. But punk ass politicians and their shit-faced political campaign managers want to divide the American people for their own political gains and we fall for this bullshit and meanwhile we have to continually count the number of fallen soldiers and feel that we honor them if we draped their coffins with flags sing fuckin’ patriot country songs. THAT’S BULLSHIT!!!!
And for all you Righties who think us Leftist don’t support our troops… FUCK YOU. I’m sick of reading about eighteen and nineteen year old kids coming home in body bags while neo-cons play “Risk” in bunkers. Half the righties that talk that shit dodged the draft when it was their turn to fight.
What is even sadder is that we show the pictures of these kids as they go off to war but are afraid to see them when they return. We scream how we want to honor their sacrifice – but that’s as long as we don’t have to see the coffin. PUNKS ASS HYPOCRITS!!!!
And We can't forget the fact that Bush has been to Iraq
Hoe Sit Down!!!
It's time to win this and bring our troops home!
Thank you. We now return you to your regularly friendly liberal blogger. Discussions about sports, cartoons and cats already in progress…
