Democrat From Kentucky


Democrat from Kentucky
We promote fair and honest political discussion from all sides of the ideological spectrum While my own opinions and my contributors tend toward a more progressive view, that's not always the case. I ask people to comment freely and openly to promote fair discourse.

Tejano Warriors: Johnson And Bush Thursday, September 22, 2005

Johnson: "Given that background, we ought not to be astonished that this struggle in Vietnam continues," Johnson said. "We ought not to be astonished that that nation, wracked by a war of insurgency and beset by its neighbors to the north, has not already emerged, full-blown, as a perfect model of two-party democracy."

Bush: In his radio address on Aug. 27, Bush said: "Like our own nation's founders over two centuries ago, the Iraqis are grappling with difficult issues, such as the role of the federal government. What is important is that Iraqis are now addressing these issues through debate and discussion — not at the barrel of a gun."

Check out the story on the AP.

They sound so much alike. It's ashame so many of our citizens believed this to be a righteous war. We were protecting them from Saddam Hussein, protecting ourselves and the world from weapons of mass destruction, giving them PEACE and democracy, the ability to live free, to decide their own fate. What we provide instead is death, to them and to our own people. We treated our soldiers so poorly when they returned from Vietnam. They didn't deserve it. The soldier over there are good Americans, no doubt about it. It's ashame the people that sent them aren't.

We're not angry at our returning soldiers; we have little magnetic yellow ribbons on the SUV.

Of course, no returning soldier gets to stay. They're all being retained indefinitely and redeployed to the theater. Until they get out for medical reasons r/t injury.

THEN they learn that the V.A. is being cut, and military benefits are being cut - because the Iraq War is costing too much.

Some politicos are going to Hell for that one.
