Cleo got into the vodka real early again yesterday. Coherence is the first casualty of distilled spirits.

Pete

Terrye - Latest polls show that the majority of Americans do support what Rove has termed "cut and run".

Infact Lamont's position on Iraq is far more mainstream than that of Lieberman (or Bush or Cheney for that matter).

Iraq had nothing to do with the real terrorist threats that we face (e.g. these UK citizens of Pakistani origin).

Ultimately the Bush/Cheney/Rove rhetoric is going to catch up to them. Since they said that Iraq is the centerpiece on the WOT, let them run on their Iraq record.

Other Tom

Best assessment I've seen thus far: The pro-Bush candidate got 48% of the vote in a Blue-state Democratic primary.

Other Tom

"...let them run on their Iraq record."

Good idea. Let all of the following run on their Iraq record:

Baucus (D-MT)
Bayh (D-IN)
Biden (D-DE)
Cantwell (D-WA)
Carper (D-DE)
Clinton (D-NY)
Dodd (D-CT)
Dorgan (D-ND)
Feinstein (D-CA)
Harkin (D-IA)
Johnson (D-SD)
Kerry (D-MA)
Kohl (D-WI)
Landrieu (D-LA)
Lincoln (D-AR)
Nelson (D-FL)
Nelson (D-NE)
Reid (D-NV)
Rockefeller (D-WV)
Schumer (D-NY)

Each and every one of them voted for the October 11, 2002 resolution authorizing the war.


Cecil Turner

Ultimately the Bush/Cheney/Rove rhetoric is going to catch up to them.

You guys keep saying that, but so far . . .

Clearly, the operatic story of the boy-genius ala "Thick as a Brick" reigns supreme.

Hold the phone--Leo gets one right! I might support "Locomotive Breath" or "Living in the Past" as best Tull song (or even "Aqualung" as most quintessentially Tull) . . . but best album? "Thick as a Brick," hands down.

Shouldn't someone trek over to LJ site this AM and ask him again about the "declining terror threat" based upon events in London and Ohio this day? I nominate Sue, since she really has a wy with the Scary one.

"Terrye - Latest polls show that the majority of Americans do support what Rove has termed "cut and run".

No so fast. Majority of the polls are so biased to fit the leftwingers. Better check Terrye's post at YARGB And (s)he's right and not alone.

"Iraq had nothing to do with the real terrorist threats that we face (e.g. these UK citizens of Pakistani origin)."

You're thinking of a totally different timeline...which is...today. You forgot three years ago.

While Saddam was running Iraq, Saddam and his country, Iraq, had PLENTY to do with the real terrorist threats that we face (e.g. these UK citizens of Pakistani origin).

Check Jveritas and Roy Robison's translated documents.

There's growing proof of Saddams' real threat to the entire world.

"Ultimately the Bush/Cheney/Rove rhetoric is going to catch up to them. Since they said that Iraq is the centerpiece on the WOT, let them run on their Iraq record."

Today, Iraq HAS nothing to do with the real terrorist threats that the world faces. It's the militias inside Iraq, sponsored by Iran and Syria as one of the terrorist organizations, that poses terrorist threats.

Why does it need to catch up to Bush / Cheney / Rove? Iraq WAS the centerpiece of GWOT before Saddam was toppled. AND it does run on their Iraq record.

"don't invoke them"

Where did I 'invoke' them? My reference was to Bush treachery which you sublimated to "your guys are creeps too" (paraphrase)

That's my point. Righty counters are always
about moral or character equivilism. But this conversation seems to be going nowhere.

lurker

Sorry, cleown (all lower cases intended).

Where is your proof of Bush's treachery regarding "No Child Left Behind"? From what I've read, this program had great intentions. The teachers did not like being upheld to such standards so that they can do a better job teaching our students.

Of course, why would this conversation not go anywhere with you or Pete or...?

boris

majority of Americans do support what Rove has termed "cut and run"

Ridiculous, votes in congress show the opposite. A factor left out is that "americans" who want to cut and run from from fighting in Iraq are going to have a bigger problem with angry fighters here if it starts to look like their stupidity and cowardice might lose another one.

The Nam thingy cuts both ways.

Ineffective back stabbers are one thing, but if it starts to affect our defense, expect consequences to be spelled out. As in we win this or else Islamic terrorists won't be your only problem. Make us your enemy at your own risk.

Somehow doubt those fretting about civil war in Iraq are interested in starting one here.

Bob

"But this conversation seems to be going nowhere."

Did you ever think it might be you... or as most moonbats, is the rest of the world always wrong.

Oh and pete with a little "p", we'll just have to wait and see, how wrong we really are, now won't we? I can't wait for the loony left to claim voter fraud when Joe gets in as an Independent. But here in CT., the Buckwheat McKinney thing won't play.

I do remember the vietnam vets, Operation Desert Storm vets, etc., saying that had we won the Vietnam war or gone all the way during Operation Desert Storm, they would be at home with high morale and integrity. Instead, they have anger inside their systems.

We have to win this war against terrorism by facing up to it.

Yeah, boris, every time Repeat Pete, Spamming Sam, cleown, etc., come here, that's their intent...to encite a civil war here without facts and evidence.

lurker

So we should be worrying about the West? Any of you concerned about it? I'm willing to bet that Repeat Pete, Spamming Sam, and cleown are not.

lurker

This is typical of what's to come from the leftwing all day, same ole, same ole as 7/7 England bombings. Today's news remind anyone of Operation Bojinka of 1995?

"Has anything hurt our defense more than the

Nope. 1) Hezzies driving a vehicle into a marine camp in Beirut, killing 241 of our marines. 2) USS Cole. 3) Khobar Towers. 4) 9/11/01, planned in 1996. 5) Plus more.

These events occured or PLANNED before Bush took the office.

And, sorry, cleown, no misadventure in the terrorist facade. Why? Look at the post-WWII years.

boris

Red Dawn wasn't a civil war movie.

America actually had a civil war that wasn't a movie. Basically Republicans had to shoot a lot of Democrats back when Democrats were dumb enough to start a shooting war with Republicans.

They're still that dumb, but lack the guns nowadays so they tend to dismiss the reality of their prediciment using denial and fiction.

Red Dawn indeed.

You are good at promoting your fact-based ideology. Pray tell, what did Iraq have to do with the above references?

Ah...you didn't even bother to read Roy Robison and Jveritas's translated documents from Project Harmony. The facts are in there proving that Saddam was a dangerous threat to the world.

Pofarmer

You want direct threats?

How about conspiring to assinate a former President and being involved in the 1993 WTC bombing? Sheltering Abu Abbas? Invading Kuwait? Genocide agaist the Kurds? There's plenty of evidence that Iraqi intelligence was involved in 9/11, but of course, you won't buy any of that.

Just how much oil for food money was Saddam funneling to terrorists?

You think Saddam was some sort of stabilizing force for the world?

boris

Lost the point and tries to change the subject ...

connect Saddam with:

Hey clown face ...

Has anything hurt our defense more than the WH gang and their misadventures in the terrorist facade, Iraq?

Deposing Saddam has not hurt our defense.

Our defense was hurt by the adminstration that did nothing to prevent or avenge those attacks on America. If you want to discuss "our defense" then discuss "our defense" not some other straw dummy argument.

Were you talking about the chain-link around your house, or military defense?

What percent of containers are being isnpected? Is that defense? Do we have the
resources to do that? Is that part of the
budget?

What if Iran (as all air warfare has proven)
cannot be contained with anything but invasion? Could Iraq limit that scenario?

Wake up people. Iraq hurt our defense far more than it helped (toppling a dictator who can't hurt us now......please, he was never capable of hurting us in any substantial way)

Go fish for some more rotten mackeral

boris

Iraq hurt our defense far more

So you say. Back it up then.

Cecil Turner

What percent of containers are being isnpected? Is that defense?

Inspect containers after they're already here? Great idea. And we can back that up with a new missile defense program: we wait for missile impact, and then have the IAEA inspect the craters.

What if Iran (as all air warfare has proven) cannot be contained with anything but invasion? Could Iraq limit that scenario?

Bass ackwards. Is an Iran invasion feasible without Iraq (hint: no).

Wake up people. Iraq hurt our defense far more than it helped . . .

Brilliant strategic analysis . . . and nice illustration of why, when Dems talking national defense, they lose.

Among reasons to consider Saddam a threat pre-March, 2003:

--Attempt to assassinate a former US president;

--Providing safe haven for Abu Nidal and Zarqawi (with the latter operating a training facility in northern Iraq);

--Statement of one W. J. Clinton, February 17, 1998, as follows:

"And they will be all the more lethal if we allow them to build arsenals of nuclear, chemical and biological weapons and the missiles to deliver them. We simply cannot allow that to happen.

"There is no more clear example of this threat than Saddam Hussein's Iraq. His regime threatens the safety of his people, the stability of his region and the security of all the rest of us";

--Statement of one w.J. Clinton, December 19, 1998 as follows:

" He has used such [chemical] weapons before against soldiers and civilians, including his own people. We have no doubt that if left unchecked he would do so again..."

--Exchange between George Stephanopoulos and Mohamed el Baradei, December 1, 2002, as follows:

El Baradei:

"But we have also told the Iraqis, you know, if you really want to come clean, if you want us to be able to provide credible assurances to the Security Council, you need to cooperate with us actively by coming forward with evidence, documents and otherwise that would convince us that your program, past program have come to a complete halt and that we have seen all aspects of your past clandestine programs.:

Stephanopoulos:

"But the Iraqis haven't done that yet, have they?"

El Baradei:

"No, they haven't."


Pofarmer

"What percent of containers are being isnpected?"

They all are. Before they reach our ports, too.

Further reasons:

"Saddam Hussein has been engaged in the development of weapons of mass destruction technology which is a threat to countries in the region and he has made a mockery of the weapons inspection process."
Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D, CA), Dec. 16, 1998.

"Hussein has ... chosen to spend his money on building weapons of mass destruction and palaces for his cronies."
Madeline Albright, Clinton Secretary of State, Nov. 10, 1999.

"There is no doubt that . Saddam Hussein has reinvigorated his weapons programs. Reports indicate that biological, chemical and nuclear programs continue apace and may be back to pre-Gulf War status. In addition, Saddam continues to redefine delivery systems and is doubtless using the cover of a licit missile program to develop longer-range missiles that will threaten the United States and our allies."
Letter to President Bush, Signed by Sen. Bob Graham (D, FL,) and others, Dec, 5, 2001.

"We begin with the common belief that Saddam Hussein is a tyrant and a threat to the peace and stability of the region. He has ignored the mandate of the United Nations and is building weapons of mass destruction and the means of delivering them."
Sen. Carl Levin (d, MI), Sept. 19, 2002.

"We know that he has stored secret supplies of biological and chemical weapons throughout his country."
Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002.

"Iraq's search for weapons of mass destruction has proven impossible to deter and we should assume that it will continue for as long as Saddam is in power."
Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002.

"We have known for many years that Saddam Hussein is seing and developing weapons of mass destruction."
Sen. Ted Kennedy (D, MA), Sept. 27, 2002.

"The last UN weapons inspectors left Iraq in October1998. We are confident that Saddam Hussein retains some stockpiles of chemical and biological weapons, and that he has since embarked on a crash course to build up his chemical and biological warfare capabilities. Intelligence reports indicate that he is seeking nuclear weapons..."
Sen. Robert Byrd (D, WV), Oct. 3, 2002.

"I will be voting to give the President of the United States the authority to use force — if necessary — to disarm Saddam Hussein because I believe that a deadly arsenal of weapons of mass destruction in his hands is a real and grave threat to our security."
Sen. John F. Kerry (D, MA), Oct. 9, 2002.

"There is unmistakable evidence that Saddam Hussein is working aggressively to develop nuclear weapons and will likely have nuclear weapons within the next five years . We also should remember we have alway s underestimated the progress Saddam has made in development of weapons of mass destruction."
Sen. Jay Rockerfeller (D, WV), Oct 10, 2002,

"He has systematically violated, over the course of the past 11 years, every significant UN resolution that has demanded that he disarm and destroy his chemical and biological weapons, and any nuclear capacity. This he has refused to do."
Rep. Henry Waxman (D, CA), Oct. 10, 2002.

"In the four years since the inspectors left, intelligence reports show that Saddam Hussein has worked to rebuild his chemical and biological weapons stock, his missile delivery capability, and his nuclear program. He has also given aid, comfort, and sanctuary to terrorists, including al Qaeda members. It is clear, however, that if left unchecked, Saddam Hussein will continue to increase his capacity to wage biological and chemical warfare, and will keep trying to develop nuclear weapons."
Sen. Hillary Clinton (D, NY), Oct 10, 2002

"We are in possession of what I think to be compelling evidence that Saddam Hussein has, and has had for a number of years, a developing capacity for the production and storage of weapons of mass destruction. "[W]ithout question, we need to disarm Saddam Hussein. He is a brutal, murderous dictator, leading an oppressive regime ... He presents a particularly grievous threat because he is so consistently prone to miscalculation. And now he has continued deceit and his consistent grasp for weapons of mass destruction ... So the threat of Saddam Hussein with weapons of mass destruction is real ...
Sen. John F. Kerry (D, MA), Jan. 23. 2003.

Thanks for proving my points.

noah

According to loony left logic Rove/Bushco/Blair would have dragged their feet and let the terror plot go forward downing 9 transatlantic flights probably killing >3000 people. But alas the plot was too widely known to be kept secret!!

On the other hand, Bushco may very well have planted explosives in the WTC towers and faked the Pentagon attack with a missile because Ted Olson and his wife would have readily agreed to her staying out of sight for the rest of her life!! What else would a patriot do?

Wowser....Tic gets slammed again. And Pete - wanna show us all those polls you keep bringing up - maybe you could compare them with the results from votes in both House and Senate dealing with pulling the troops out. LOL

Wonder what Neddy thinks about new arrests in the terror front?

BTW - for sam et. al. Did you see the news yesterday about the Iraqi army taking over yet another section of the country? We are half-way to the goal of having them provide most of the security for their own country. And sam - I love the way you pick and choose - but mostly I skip over your posts. Would you like me to start posting how many people were shot in Hartford last night? I could just about post article for article.....The fact is that - yes - people are still dying in Iraq. The terrorists are killing Iraqi civilians. Man - that is really kewl stuff you stand up for.

Heh, all of the 9/11 conspiracies ARE disproved by people I know that actually saw the plane hitting the Pentagon or worked at the Pentagon.

I was also told by a local that all of our sea ports are being very, very closely monitored.

Barney Frank

"A policy that calls for a response that is far more costly than the threat is a losing policy."

The threat is the incineration of Israel and an American city or two and the eventual evisceration of our civilization.

Is it that the left is only interested in political power and therfore pretends the threat isn't serious or is it that the left is looking for allies in the evisceration of our civilization and therefore pretends the threat isn't serious?

noah

The left always discounts human nature when constructing its worldview. Of course utility and risk calculations indicate that we should just ignore the perils of terrorism...but in the real world, we real flesh and blood humans cannot. Our innate desire for justice demands that perpetrators of terrorism be caught if possible. Only sociopaths like Bill Clinton can cynically ignore the evidence that implicated Iran in the Khobar Towers bombing for example.

Semanticleo

Everyone;

Got a baler for all that straw?

Evidence my arse. The only cogent thought
was by Cecil: "Is an Iran invasion feasible without Iraq (hint: no)."

The first honest answer abut WHY we went to Iraq. Think the American Public would have bought into the invasion if THAT were given as the prime mover? A permanent base of operations was the goal all along, wasn't it.?

noah

Yep, Cleo...how clever of you to figure out that the admin is possibly (I would say certainly) being disingenuous when it says or implies that it has no interest in permanent bases in Iraq. It would be a strategic blunder to leave Iraq unless asked to do so by the government of Iraq. I daresay that even Hillary Clinton, if elected, would keep troops especially air force assets in Iraq indefinitely.

Obviously your strong suit is not geopolitics.

boris

abut WHY we went to Iraq

The invasion of Iraq was "abut" the war on terror. Iran is a part of that war in very much the same way Saddam was. Were Iran and Syria to suffer the same fate as Afghanistan and Iraq, intermational terror would be in deep dark trouble.

Can't wait.

Your side wants to wait until they actually detonate a nuke on a US city to get serious.

Pete

If you think that the polls on Iraq are biased, then by all means continue to live in your fantasy world.

That the people are dissatisfied with the Democrats on Iraq is one of the reasons that Lieberman lost. It is also why Hillary will not win the 2008 nomination.

And while there are risks for Democrats, the risks for far greater for Republicans. The Iraq war after all is something that Bush vigorously pursued, something for which he got all that he wanted (money and soldiers), and something that he was fully in charge of.

But rather than running on their record of the Iraq war, Bush and the Republicans are running away from it. With a majority of the people concluding that the Iraq war was not worth it (despite the constant attempts by Bush to put lipstick on a pig), it should be no surprise why they are running away from their record on the Iraq war.

Sometimes you make sense. Not this time. This is real...not Plamegate bullshit. People are dying.

Nit the clit and she will have a fit

No solution except absolution

Yes we forgive the clit for all of her sins against reason

And ask that Tom (since we did our best) to ban her for a season

"Thus far, we're the only fascist state in history with an illegal immigration problem."

ROTFL!

Because I basically like you more than cleo I'm going to give you the heads up : You are wrong about your belief that the majority of the country is soft on terrorism. They are not. After today's British airline threats to our security in taking flights you have to see the war on terror for what it really is. A threat to our safety,security and our peaceful free way of life. We must be proactive not reactive. The dems just don't get this and therefore I can't vote for them to represent me and my family in Congress. I have 2 children, and 16 nieces and nephews; I want their future world to be safe and happy.

"And what would you do about that problem of
'immigration'. Revealing isn't it?"

What is revealing of what? I offer the fact that people are coming in droves to this country, even at great risk, as evidence that perhaps the designation of the US as a "fascist" country is a tad premature. And in response, you ask what I would do, and without knowing my answer you say it is revealing? Have you been in the sauce tonight, Cleo old girl?

Well heck, this was a fast read. Just scrolled on by most of it. Same stuff over and over and over and over and over....

"What percent of containers are being isnpected?"

Quite simply Leotard,if the containers get to port it is too late to inspect them,that is why they are being inspected at the port of origin.Even then the job is vastly complicated because cargo vessels often pick up more cargo on route.
Since containers can originate from anywhere before they reach container depots,the port of origin is the only place where inspection can take place,out of the question on the high seas,too late once they get into port in the West

Naoh says: ""You are the one that said the current war is a conspiracy between Israel and the US ..""


No I didn't, you characterized my remarks that way. Since a 'conspiracy' would require an illegal act and I don't see anything being done as illegal, then it can't be a conspiracy.

Its not a 'conspiracy' when two Nations decide on a course of action and I never labelled it as such...that was YOUR word for my saying the US and Israel were coordinating.
