It is my sad duty to report on the failure of our military intervention for this century. In the first years since the great tragedy that befell us we have seen our country’s leader condone the massive failure of our own military forces. In battle after battle we have lost brave men and yes, women, all to the folly of our president. Therefore, it is with great regret that I recommend the full withdrawal of all military forces back to the United States.
Signed, Harry Reid and the Democrat Party (after their new review of the time traveling machine developed at MIT.) 14, March, 1943.
Pearl Harbor, Wake Island, Guadalcanal, Coral Sea, Bataan, Corregidor, Battle of the Atlantic (loss of merchant shipping to U-Boats), Battle of the Java Sea, Kasserine Pass and others. These battles were not defined as defeats but described to the American people as heroic defenses of freedom. Only one of these battles was fought on American soil. The rest were in foreign countries of which the Democrat Party of today would argue were none of our business.
The attacks on Gen. Petraeus as well as the political posturing by these individuals would have resulted in the wholesale surrender of the United States to Japan and Germany in World War ll. The perseverence of our political body back then is a far cry from the total lack of understanding and appreciation in the Democrat Party for the will and courage that is needed for a nation to exist.
There is an old saying, “what goes around, comes around” and if the American people do not wake up to the necessity of maintaining the will to defend our way of life, then that dream that is our country will disappear from the earth.
This is not a threat but a simple prediction based upon the lessons of history. To see this clearly one must only look to the great nations that have gone before. Where are the great pharaohs of Egypt? How did the great Greek experiment in Democracy disappear? What about the Roman Empire? What of the great nations of Europe which settled and colonized the entire globe? Even the Soviet Union which withstood the avalanche of Nazi terror has passed from the annals of history.
All of these empires succumbed to the one great enemy of mankind. This is the great evil of complacency. Someone once said that the sun never set on the British Empire. It does now. Is the sun setting on the great experiment called the United States?
Does the Democrat Party and the obviously erroneous media, now speak for the will of the American people? According to polls they do. When something is hard, America used to take it as a challenge, not just quit. Now, people see and hear that less than four thousand soldiers are killed and believe that it is too high a price to pay. Nor do they recognize the value of these soldiers’ sacrifice.
Back in 2003 our Congress was presented with both our own and foreign intelligence reports which described a threat which was believed by all concerned, but when faced with an enemy who refused to give us absolute proof to back up this intelligence we are now the first ones to condemn ourselves for having the guts to act on a proven outlaw regime.
These are facts reported in the media; We found three trailers that the German engineers who built them told me in a briefing in Germany could only be used for biological weapons. These trailers were constructed to destroy any evidence contained in them with the push of a button. We found warehouses full of insecticides which when combined with a catalyst would become a toxic nerve gas. Over five hundred shells with chemical warheads have been discovered. The head of the nuclear project for Saddam Hussein admitted in media reports that he was lying to his boss by telling him that they were on the verge of being able to make nuclear weapons.
Democrats and their allies in the media responded that the trailers could have been used for carrying vaccinations to outlying villages. No one commented on the massive amounts of insecticide that were discovered. (the Germans used an insecticide called Zyclone B. to kill the Jews and others in the concentration camps), There was no comment about the artillery shells that were discovered except to say that they were old and five hundred was not a large enough number.
The Democrats were simply ridiculous in their roles of denying the ongoing capability of Saddam Hussein to utilyze what we call today weapons of mass destruction. Yet, according to everyone none of these finds can point to the basic concern we had about WMDs.
This condemnation of the use of military force in Iraq by the Democrats is a farce of the greatest scale. But, the acquiescence by the American public in believing this farce is an indication of a total lack of an acceptance of reality bordering on suicidal.
Basic logic dictates that the argument of the Democrats right now in Congress are baseless and indefensible. THEY gave the go ahead to go to Iraq, then tried to use it as a political bat to beat their opposition instead of educating their constituents about why they approved it in the first place. (If they were fooled into going into Iraq, do you really trust them to now be smart enough to know the “right thing to do” now?) THEY accepted Petraeus’s military plan for Iraq then condemned it before even listening to his report! Are they prescient? (well then why did they approve it in the first place?) Now, THEY want to tell the American people what to do.
If someone was wrong as many times as the Democrat Party in Congress is why would anyone ever listen to them again?
Remember, What goes around, Comes around.
Our second president, John Adams in one of his multitude of letters wrote the following about America as the Constitution was being written,
“The people in America, have now the best opportunity and the greatest trust in their hands that Providence ever committed to so small a number since the transgression of the first pair; if they betray their trust, their guilt will merit even greater punishment than other nations have suffered and the indignation of Heaven.”
