And there are millions of "stupid white men" as Michael Moore so aptly described them in his book, who will embrace these right wing echo chamber spins. These are the men who use talk of war and talk of superiority over anti war democrats as a kind of Viagra that makes them feel more manly, tougher.
I call them the dumbest, dupes in the world. Since this is a kind of sexual thing, with the war talk as Viagra, that sort of makes them cuckolds-- men who are made fools of by other men.
The fact is, the Republicans are trying to justify staying in a war that shold never nave been started. They're trying to legitimize keeping on engaging in what amounts to a horrible crime. Bush lied to get us into this war. He knowingly used false information. His fraudulent claims were used to justify starting a war. It's hard to think of a worse crime. He and his cronies deserve to go to jail. And what do you call some one who aids and abets criminals? I call them accomplices. That's what the Republicans in congress are. They are attempting to keep the like going. This is a war that should be stopped dead in its tracks.
When some Republican legislator tries to perpetuate the lie of a just war and talks about staying the course, I think, "What course, the one that was started upon with lies about WMDs? The one that was started with lies about the threat of nuclear cluds? The one that was started with lies about Saddams involvement in 9/11, when Iraq was not even on the government's list of nations that harbored Al Quaeda?
How stupid do these right wing extremists think the American people are? But then again, we don't see the news media critiquing these lying accomplices. Every single news anchor should be laughing at these snivelling liars as they spew their faux testosterone laden bluster about courage and bravery. There is no courage in staying on a course that waas decided upon based on lies and deception. That is stupidity, bad leadership, denial, arrogance, ignorance and heartlessly tragic, since it is causing so many deaths, so many maimings of soldiers and innocent civilians.
