How to Lose a War

Ralph Peters has a great op-ed at the New York Post concerning how to lose a war. Here’s a quote:

“QUIT. It’s that simple. There are plenty of more complex ways to lose a war, but none as reliable as just giving up.

Increasingly, quitting looks like the new American Way of War. No matter how great your team, you can’t win the game if you walk off the field at half-time. That’s precisely what the Democratic Party wants America to do in Iraq. Forget the fact that we’ve made remarkable progress under daunting conditions: The Dems are looking to throw the game just to embarrass the Bush administration.”

What you won’t hear in the Mainstream Media

This is from Jim Shelton’s blog.

Some say President Bush should not have led us into War in Iraq and Afghanistan.

1- FDR led us into WWII

2- Germany never attacked us. 450,000 lives were lost.

3- Truman led us into the Korean War – North Korea never attacked us. 55,000 lives were lost

4- John Kennedy led us into Vietnam. North Vietnam never attacked us. 58,000 lives were lost

5- Clinton led us into Bosnia. Bosnia never attacked us. He was offered Bin Laden’s head three times by the Sudanese. Clinton did nothing.
Osama has attacked us on various occasions.

6- In the years since terrorists attacked us, the USA under President Bush has liberated two countries, crushed the Taliban, crippled Al-Qaida, put nuclear inspectors in Libya, Iran, North Korea without firing a shot and captured a terrorist who murdered 300,000 of his own people.

All the Democrats do is complain how long the war is taking.

HOWEVER…

It took less time to take Iraq than it took Janet Reno to take the Branch Dividian compound

It took less time than it took Hillary Clinton to find the Rose Law Firm billing records

It took less time for the 3rd Infantry to destroy the Medina Republican Guard than it took Ted Kennedy to call police after his car sank in Chappaquiddick.

It took less time to take Iraq than it took to count all the votes in Florida.

The biased liberal media and wacko Liberal Democrats hope we are too ignorant to realize the facts.

Grandstanding

How disgusting that politicians decided to use the funeral of a wonderful woman (Rosa Parks) to grandstand and attack President Bush. What should have been a fitting tribute and deserving memorial turned into hours of rehashed rhetoric. How sad.

The funeral for Rosa Parks was held in Detroit (where she lived for many years until her death), and the politicians from John Kerry to Hillary Clinton to Nancy Pelosi (who invited her?) to Bill Clinton were tripping over themselves to be seen and heard. Even disgraced has-been Jesse Jackson was there.

What should have been a true celebration of life was turned into a political free-for-all.
