Word up Warmongers - defending your mistakes is killing the troops

The Bush disaster deniers are out in full force, apparently inspired by the inane drivel at Investor's Business daily yesterday. Robert Farley rounds up the usual winguts posts of approval on this smear job that attempts to justify their wholly misplaced support for an inept "war," while Jeff Jacoby expands on IBD's insult to any American with an IQ higher than that of a carrot that hasn't been zombified by irrational Bush support. That the leaders of this smear job against legimately concerned Americans aren't that stupid only makes their scurrillous accusations all the more offensive and even evil.

Blue Texan reads their agenda straight from their little neo-con play book.
Either way, the way they see it, it's a win for them. If we "win" (though they tellingly never define what this actually means) they can claim they were prescient. If we "lose" they can claim they alone stood up for America while the liberal media and the Democrats stabbed the troops in the back.
Meanwhile, as these "oh so concerned and patriotic" warmongers continue to play their mean spirited word games in order to avoid admitting their own complicity in promoting the ongoing House of Horrors, once called the Middle East, these fine upstanding supporters of the troops studiously ignore the WaPo series on the mistreatment of our war wounded and continue to try to convince themselves, and their remaining loyal fanbase, that they really still are in the majority.

Who the hell do they think they're fooling? The warmongers need to get a clue. Supporting this war does not support the troops and no amount of high sounding rhetoric will change the painfully apparent fact that the only thing they are supporting is their wrongly placed trust in an inept president and his failed policies. Perhaps they see it as some kind of courage of conviction. All the rest of us see is a weak and cowardly defense of a failed position - and a willingness to sacrifice soldier's lives merely to save their own face.

LOL, Lester, but maybe Jeff needs some "love" mail. To steal a quote from the movie, "HOOK", I think he needs a Mommie. Poor thing can't seem to grasp the concept that we support our troops by wanting them removed from danger and from a fight that is not their's. I can't imagine too many soldiers being dragged away from Iraq kicking and screaming. In fact, there are probably many husbands, wives and children who would be crying tears of joy. Want to bet odds that Jeffy doesn't have any family or friends over there? I'm always amazed at how cavalier those who don't have an real stake in these wars can be.

Good for you Lester. I don't read the Boston papers like I used to so I never read him. Now I remember why.

Rocky, Jeff needs a swift kick in the butt and a month doing IED patrols in Baghdad. All the White House parrots do.

Keep at it Lester. Even if you don't printed, the complaints matter.
