Forget It, Kerry! You're Outta Your Element!
Congratulations to John Kerry for coming up with a sensible Iraq policy worthy of a loyal opposition party, only 17 months after it would've been useful. Great work, John! The plan: GET THE HELL OUT. But, you know, give 'em another month to get ready. Honestly, Iraq has already turned the lights on and started picking up the bottles, and here's America, asking if there's any beer left and still trying to find someone to go home with. But John, let's see what you have to add to the debate:
WE are now in the third war in Iraq in as many years. The first was against Saddam Hussein and his supposed weapons of mass destruction. The second was against terrorists whom, the administration said, it was better to fight over there than here. Now we find our troops in the middle of an escalating civil war.
Half of the service members listed on the Vietnam Memorial Wall died after America's leaders knew our strategy would not work. It was immoral then and it would be immoral now to engage in the same delusion.
The Dude: "Everything's a fuckin' travesty with you, man! And what was all that shit about Vietnam? What the FUCK has anything got to do with Vietnam? What the fuck are you talking about?"
