These self righteous, self centered cowards are keeping our troops in Iraq, making them targets for hundreds of squads of "insurgents." They call them insurgents. I think they are people who just want the US to get the hell out of Iraq so it will stop screwing it up.
Our GIs are doing third and fourth rotations in that middle east hell. Our national guards are doing the same. They signed up to fight in case the US was attacked. Now, they are being divorced by spouses who, understandably, are not putting up with not having a spouse for years on end. They are coming back with arms, legs, eyes missing. Or dying there... for what? For lying politicians like George Bush, Scooter Libby, Tom DeLay, Bill Frist, Karl Rove, or for spineless, sniveling Democrat war supporters like Joe Lieberman and Joe Biden?
Yet 40% of the American people who are still supporting the war and the politicians who are still spinning lies and excuses to continue to keep our troops there. These low-life cowards-- a mix of wealthy tax dodgers, religious fanatics, many of whom have been physically or sexually abused, white male coward losers who also use tough talk about war as a way to feel more manly, like military-talk-Viagra-- brag that the war is keeping the terrorists out of the US. They brag that the war attracts the terrorists to Iraq.
Then these self righteous, scum-sucking cowardly traitors and idiots put ribbon stickers on their cars, saying they support the troops. Now, there are family members who are idiotic enough to consider it patriotic to go fight in a war that was started based on lies and intentions to steal oil. There are parents and siblings, spouses and the children of GIs who really do "support" the troops. They love them and want them to come home safe.
But they are sadly misled. The best way for them to support their loved ones is to shout and scream, to protest and demonstrate and demand that the politicians who sent them to war based on lies bring them home now. NOW, not in six months, not in the late part of 2006. NOW!! Yes it will cause a problem. Yes, there will be chaos in Iraq. But it will just be a different flavor than the chaos that already exists. Maybe it will mean that Bush's Chalabi won't be in charge.
It would be true justice if the liars and idiots who brought the US into this war, who perpetrated this war against the people of Iraq would be tried for war crimes. Start with Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld. Add some of the generals who ran this war. Include the generals and officers who established the policy of using Phosphorus bombs in Falluja radioactive shell casings-- spent Uranium-- which will linger in Iraq for billions of years.
When you see a supporter of the republicans and democrats who still support this war, you see a coward who is happy to send brave, patriotic soldiers into a situation that they don't deserve to be sent to. You see cowards and tax dodgers and religious fools who know, deep in their hearts that they are betraying the trust of the soldiers who enlisted to protect them. When you see someone with a BUsh 2004 sticker on his or her humvee, Lexus, Lincoln, Caddy, SUV, four seater pick-up truck or Mercedes, you see someone who is willing to watch our troops die so his or her family can evade paying taxes.
These are the people who support the Republicans who passed a drug law for seniors that will, by summer of 2006, leave many seniors unable to pay for their medications. We KNOW that some of them will stop taking their medicine and DIE. It could be one of your parents. It will probably be the poor and most vulnerable.
These people deserve nothing but contempt. They will tell you that Bush is still better than Kerry would have been. They will say that they are still glad we got rid of Saddam. They will say it is better for the terrorists to be over there than here. Stare them down and call them the cowards and fools that they are. Or tell them to go to a de-programmer, that they're not only drinking the Kool-aid, but they're also forcing America to take what amounts to arsenic.
Mea culpa. This is a complete rant. It was set off by reading an Op-Ed by Bob Herbert on how The Army is Ready to Snap. But maybe it's time to stop letting the cowards and tax dodgers, the people willing to use our troops for bait, get away with it anymore. Maybe we need to be like Howard Beale, in Network, and we need to get out in the streets and shout. I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take it any more." Maybe we need to get in these cowardly, tax-d0dgers faces and tell them. You're cowards and tax dodgers and you're not going to get away with it anymore. You're religious nuts and we're not going to let you dump your koolaid in our already polluted streams anymore. You're ruining this country and we're going to do whatever it takes to stop you.
Just a thought-- What if we started sendin! g anonym ous letters to right wingers, telling them what tax-dodging, cowards they are, how far below whale sh*t they are? The letters would be short.
You are a coward for sending our troops to act as bait to prevent terrorist attacks here. You are a tax-dodging, deadbeat, unChristian tightwad supporting right wing extremist republicans who put your wealth and corporate interests ahead of the weakest and most vulnerable members of society-- the elderly, the young and the poor. Wake up. The republican party is built on lies--
-Opposing Big government-- they hhave made it bigger
-Financial Responsibility-- They have plunged the US into massive debt, when the Democrats, under Clinton, left a surplus
-Keeping us safer-- there are more terrorists, more terrorist attacks, more bombings. All they've done is cut back on the reporting of terrorism.
The Republican party is no longer what it used to stand for. It is time to vote out corrupt, cronyistic politicians. Continued support for your Republican legislators makes you as contemptible as they are.
It doesn't have to be a letter. It can be flyer, put in the doors of people who you know vote right wing. Put under their windshield wipers on cars in parking lots.
