Politics served up with a smile... And a stilletto.

The War in Iraq is, though admittedly not popularly known as such, a campaign within the War on Terror. The wisdom of its merit is up for debate,obviously, but that doesn't make it less a part of the bigger war than the North African campaign or Italian campaign, which were both seen by many as diverting resources away from taking the war to the enemy in Europe, can be taken out of the History of World War II. The fact that we as a nation are in mortal danger from Islamic Extremist should have long ago solidified our national resolve to follow through on the President's pledge to seek and destroy the enemy wherever he goes. But it is no surprise that the President who had already gone out of his way to cross the aisle and work with the opposition, often to the disgust of Republicans/Conservatives, would have only the most cursory of lip service paid even in the aftermath of 911 and indeed have his teeth kicked in at every opportunity by democrats. I understand the need to discuss the merits of the invasion of Iraq. I also recall that democrats and republicans alike agreed it was the thing to do (and most European Countries believed that weapons of mass destructions existed there). Then I recall that democrats believed that Iraqis would not welcome Saddam's removal,they did. Then no opportunity was spared to create the storyline that failure was an eventuality, while conveniently forgetting that countless UN warnings,impediments to inspections,satellite and intelligence data all pointed to the need to act on Iraq. And while the mantra of "no wmds found" droned on and on and on, the torture rooms, rape rooms, evidence of wmd used on Iraqi citizens, terror camps, stockpiles of old wmd weapons, underground facilities that may have had sinister uses such as weapons productions, the recollection of Iraq firing missile after missile at Israel, and their building of the super gun, also aimed at Israel from the first Gulf War; all conveniently slipped from the consciousness of the left. There is nothing perfect about American Stategy in Iraq. There wasn't perfect strategy in any American conflict. Indeed, Roosevelt, Eisenhower, MacArthur and many others would have been sacked during WWII; if all other things being the same, they were Republicans and the modern extremist left and it's press corp was in place. I'm not a republican. I voted for Obama in the primary, but I can say now that I won't be supporting him in Nov. because he is not knowledgeable in military matters, in foreign matters, in economic matters. He sure can give a whopper of a speech though. I want to see the town hall meetings that McCain has proposed and see how he works without a net.

Seven and a half years of the worst foreign policy in the history of the United States, and you’re “right on board” for more of the same. Let’s take a look at a few of the highlights: An endless war that has now gone on for longer than World War II. (It was McCain who pointed this out at a recent commemoration ceremony at Pearl Harbor) We were able to completely rebuild our Navy and a good part of our Air Force, mobilize 16 million people and defeat two world powers all over the world in less time than we have been able to do what????????? in Iraq. A war that is costing 3 billion dollars a week! A child dies of starvation every six seconds in Africa. For three billion dollars, you could feed every one of them. A war that will cost over a trillion dollars and is killing our economy and creating more poverty in the USA. An Al-Qaeda that has reconstituted itself to pre- 9/11 strength, and which – had we not invaded Iraq and given them a “new cause” – would probably now either be non-existent, or consist of a couple of dozen guys hiding in caves. Bin Laden and Al Zarqawi alive and well, and regularly sending out tapes to promote their cause. Sanctioned humiliation and torture at Abu Ghraib. A strengthened and defiant Iran, moving right ahead with their development of nuclear weapons. ZERO progress on the Israel – Palestinian front, with Hamas now controlling Gaza. Lebanon rapidly coming apart. Personally…….I’ll take the “pie in the sky” approach…….

So Rick, what do you really think of Obama?

No one gave babalu an ass whupin he is right McCain has mistaken every single mideast issue from leaders names to political parties to historical events and he gets a free pass he gets it from the press and you don't seem to remember any of those sins either and who can blame him for not remembering when one republican was swiftboating and another was smearing? It's not republicans don't wage personal attacks de riguer You are here in a small self congratulatory circle while your party is losing support. Three special elections in hard republican districts voted in democrats wake up guys the problem isn't in them the problem is in you The right wing talking heads and think tanks experts spread out on Fox News and AM radio and convince people that John kerry shot himself in the foot and that John McCain fathered a black child. Think about that. Spreading lies about John Kerry who is a decorated navy combat veteran. Being gossiped and lied about by political operatives. Veterans being insulted by bloggers. Here is a perfect example of how the Republican Brand gets tainted. It's because of Republican Cronies appointed by Bush who have no business running ANYTHING. "This move by Obama comes after and CREW produced an email on Thursday from a VA official--Norma Perez--in which she advised a number of VA employees, including psychologists, social workers, and a psychiatrist that, due to an increased number of "compensation seeking veterans," the staff should "refrain from giving a diagnosis of PTSD straight out" and they should "R/O [rule out] PTSD" and consider a diagnosis of "Adjustment Disorder" instead." Remember this administrator is a Republican who claims to support the troops. Perhaps with a magnetic ribbon she does. But like congressional republicans cutting benefits to soldiers and keeping them over there just to kick the Iraq fiasco can down to the Democrats....these are all reasons why you are losing. I might be wrong I don't think I am.

Babalubama claims our next President will be a Black man, a democrat and actually elected. All of that is debatable.He's not even an actual African-American what with his hippie mom white and his abandoning daddy more Arab than Kenyan Black. And I see Barry Hussein as from the Marxist wing of the dimmy party. And lastly, the same old tired canard about SCOTUS selecting Bush over the rightful winner algore. If anyone is responsible for Bush's vote margin in Fla. it is the media for calling the election for algore before the polls closed in the Panhandle and the votes apparently miscast for Buchanan by the NY-transplant libs who couldn't understand the dimmy designed butterfly ballot. I know- it is all ancient history, but my esteemed congress-wad Bobby Wexler is still beating the impeachment drum also. And yeah, the media is biased toward Rethuglicans. That's why the moobats want the fairness doctrine reinstituted- they can't or won't support airhead america and apparently PBS and NPR don't get enough tax dollars nor do CNN, CBS and MSNBC/NBC garner effective ratings vs. Faux/Fixed News. Yes, the biased to the right media that drools over barry and gets aroused sexually when looking at or listening to the Messiah. Babaloser surely doesn't think the media has been fair to the evil BusHitler or does he? Or that the NY Times is patriotic and wants us to defeat the Islamofascists? In another time and place Pinch and his minions would be hanged for treason.

Babalu: (see post 2) The great thing about your post is that you can use it anywhere and against any comment that sets you off. Just take out the "radio host" stuff and paste the rest at as many blogs as possible. Why bother addressing the specific points in the article (that would take some actual knowledge of the issues) when you can use your auto-rant.

P.S. I think you gave Babalu the best ass-ripping I've ever seen. I almost felt sorry for him. Almost.

I sincerely apologize for my past accusation that you suffer from "white guilt". I thought you were giving him a pass. I now see that you only attack on provable deficiencies (e.g. platitudes on Lebanon issues). In retrospect, I think I agree with you that the failures of his poor judgment (with his choice of associates) pales in comparison to the famine of his foreign policy knowledge. Will it be enough?

Rick, You absolutely nailed this one! Great article. This is a big story that tells us a lot about the mind of Obama. The more Obama defines his “change” the scarier it gets. _______________________________________________________________________________ “Our friends in Lebanon are very worried about this man becoming president. They fear he will sell them down the river in order to get a peace deal with Iran or broker a Middle East peace with Syria and Israel. The temptation will be great to do so no matter who is president – McCain or Obama – to give in to Syria’s demands on Lebanon and leave the Lebanese people to the tender mercy of Hizbullah and Gangster Assad’s henchmen.” – Rick Moran _______________________________________________________________________________ It sounds like Obama is being coached by Jimmy Carter. This is dangerous stuff that will sorely harm our national security. Obama is so bad, I may reconsider my current refusal to vote for the eco-neocon McCain!

As I recall, McCain couldn't distinguish between Sunni and Shiite. Isn't THAT a critical piece of information? Tell me something radio host, what qualifies you to judge Senator Obama? Sitting there watching Fox News Pentagon propagandists? You better start swinging at Obama now. Go ahead, have at it. Smear him. Call him a Muslim and tell us about all his ties to terrorism. It won't matter. That stuff doesn't work anymore. Because our next chief executive will be a Black man, a Democrat, and actually elected. President Barack Hussein Obama Say it again Where do I call Obama a Muslim? Where do I say he has ties to terrorism? The answer is nowhere my friend. And your blanket condemnation coming on this site only shows you to be an ignoramus of the first order. I have, in fact railed against some on the right's efforts to portray Obama as a Muslim: And no one has ever said Obama has ties to terrorists. Perhaps YOU could explain what he's doing hanging around with an ex-terrorist - someone who showed no remorse about blowing people to smithereens. The fact that this little piece of info doesn't seeme to perturb you only shows you to be one the densest Obama partisans out there - a brainless, mindless automaton who can't think for himself and worships at the altar of a fake, a fraud, a phony, a snake oil salesman who has never accomplished anything in office and yet promises the moon, the sky, and the stars. Only a nitwit like you would believe someone like that. ed.
