THE WAR AT HOME - THE SUNDAY COMMENTARY

The war continues and it is taking its toll on the American people, Washington , politics, our free society and of course the troops. I am not referring to The War On Terror, or any aspect of it whether Iraq, Afghanistan or the continuing process of finding and flushing our the Islamic fanatics who wish to terrorize our nation and destroy all that we are.

The , " war, " I make reference to is right here at home within our very borders. It appears daily on the news. Every time the radio brings the top and bottom of the hour news break this , "war, " is front and center. It dominates the headlines of every newspaper in every city and town. Nearly every commentary on the web makes reference to it in one form or another.

This, "war, " fights for the very soul of our society and in the process it hampers the real battle against the true enemy of every American, Islamic fanatics. And the true enemy is taking advantage of this, "war, " to position, arm and recruit to better kill Americans.

The, "war, " that we are fighting, while headlines mention Iraq and other battlefields in the real war, is right here at home and the center theater of this, "war, " are the halls of Congress and the 24/7 news cycle which broadcasts the daily confrontations to the American people.

We are at war with ourselves and there never can be any winners in this type of war. It happened once before in the sixties over Vietnam and many on the left have tried to use the current fight as a comparison to that war. But truly there is no comparison between the two except that those in opposition to the current fight are turning on the troops as they did in the sixties.

Instance after instance are surfacing where the troops themselves are becoming the focus of protests, talk shows and now the actions of the Democrat controlled United Sates Congress. Sickening pictures of protesters with signs like, "F*** the troops, " and burning a soldier in effigy are showing their ugly face. Instances of spitting and name calling of honored heroes who come to protests to show their support for the mission and express their belief in the current fight are becoming more and more prevalent. Liberal talk show hosts like Rosie O'Donnell are constantly claiming that our troops are torturing innocent civilians or prisoners and arguing that rather than this being isolated incidents which always happen in war , the entire military is blamed and not just the few. 60 minutes sets up and destroys a soldier during a program advertised as an investigation into one particular incident.

Now the Congress under Democrat leadership is using the political process to rob troops of necessary funding to protect themselves and best fight the war against our real enemy Islamic fanatics. The leadership in the House in order to force passage of the current, "funding, " bill with unconstitutional provisions of time lines and manipulation of strategy which is the Constitutional Authority of the Commander in Chief and not the Congress, has used millions of dollars in pork barrel bribes added to the bill to twist members of their own party into voting for the bill instead of following their conscience. And sadly the spineless members have been bought and paid for by the bribes and the bill passed, leaving the President no alternative but to veto a funding bill for the protection of the troops!

It is time to wake up and realize what is happening. We are not at war with ourselves but instead with an enemy who will stop at nothing to kill every single American regardless of politics or philosophy or appeasement. The truth is the real enemy of America wants us dead and our country destroyed. Yet liberals and Democrat leadership would rather fight Americans that the radical Islamic enemy who does not care about even their politics except as a diversion from the war against terrorism.

Are we so removed from the terrible events of September 11 that we have forgotten why we are fighting in the first place ? I am tired of hearing the liberal argument that, "we support Afghanistan and all of the troops, " while the Democrat Congress plays games with funding for , "all of the troops." The lie is evident and the troops are the victims of this war at home. The lame arguments for political gain and the destruction of the President because of a continual brewing anger over the 2000 election has turned Iraq into a battle of politics instead of a fight for freedom and against an enemy that has stated that Iraq is the center of the, "Holy Jihad, " against the infidel. The very person that the left cries fowl because he is still at large stated this, Usama Bin Laden.

The war we fight is not just against Al Qaeda because they attacked us but against fanatical Islam who seeks our destruction. Al Qaeda's attack on September 11 was the catalyst to wage war against this fanatical enemy whose real purpose was not understood until the Towers fell. This enemy includes Al Qaeda, the current Iranian regime and its President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad who just this past week committed an out right act of war by taking a British vessel in open waters and all 15 crew members hostage. Other groups such as Hamas, and Hezbollah are just the more well know members of radical Islam whose numbers are more than the many who make the news and who have as their goal and sole purpose our death and destruction.

While we wage this war at home against our troops, and among politicians who fight for the vote of the American people our real enemy is watching, arming, recruiting and planning. While we fight among ourselves they wait in sleeper cells, some in our own country, cities and towns, for the next 9/11 or worse. They are patient and cunning and the pure essence of evil. It may not be tomorrow or next week or even next year but this enemy will strike and will strike hard against us again. Then we will wonder how it happened and attempt to place blame but the real reason will escape us because in our debates and infighting here at home we have forgotten what they did to us and wish to do to us again. We are being lulled to sleep to the threat of a very dangerous, systematic and ruthless enemy. An enemy that we have the power and the means to defeat and utterly destroy but sadly lack the will and resolve to fight until final victory.

But we are to busy fighting among ourselves to finish what they started. To busy playing politics to fund the troops. To busy arguing about federal attorneys and Karl Rove and Global Warming. They are not too busy to wait and watch and plan and one day sooner then later while we sleep in the midst of our politics they will kill again and again and again, until we finally wake up and stand together and destroy the real enemy of all Americans. Let us hope that it will not be to late!

I am done with the "I support the troops and not the war," line. Pick a side and stick with it. I support the war and the troops. There are those will whine and complain that they are allowed to split choices. No, you can't. Either you want them to finish the job or you don't.
I love how Code Pink has realized Pelosi sold them out for votes. Pelsoi knows her control of the House will be over in year+.

I support the troops and oppose the Bush Administration. Easy.

Those of you who think it's either/or are engaging in a logical fallacy called the false dichotomy.

But logical fallacies are the rightwing stock in trade.

Great post Ken,

It is impossible for us all to come together when these people burn mock Troops in effigy, and blame the sun not shining today on President Bush.

Until THEY stop with this nonsense we will never come together as one and defeat together the real enemy who are the Terrorists!

The left still doesnt get it, they will NEVER get it and until the day they do I guess all the mudslinging will continue.

It would be nice to have it all stop, but I dont see it happening.

Then you have the most horrible legislation ever passed by the Pelosi Congress that is suppose to fund our Troops, yet they set an artificial timetable for withdrawl, and add a ton of pork to the bill. C'mon, PEANUT STORAGE!?!?!? WTF?? Just what the hell does Peanut Storage have anything to do with Funding Our Troops and getting desperatly needed money to thier families?

I think those that voted these Lunatics in are pretty sorry they did now. I saw that when I was at "The Wall" last weekend and talked to alot of people that are totally disgusted with thier votes, and vow not to ever do that again!

But until the day these people ever understand we are fighting for our right to exist, there will be continuous infighting in our own Country. Sad, but true.

It is not a right-wing thing, it is an American thing. To oppose the war based on the admin an illogial thought pattern. Mudkitty, you have smarts, i can tell, but you seem to miss the point. I supported any military action by Clinton becasue it reflected our troops. I supported any military actions by Carter, I supported our troops. Although Clinton had no faith in our resolve, I did and still do. Please look past you r political ideology, which flawed is an imperitive part of political fabric for the need of opposition, and look at the long term consequences.
You will come back with how we look to the rest of the world, got nws for you, they were jealous of us before and still hate, nothing's changed until we as bitter as they are. But we love our country and always will.

I am with you, Obob. I didn't like the setup in Somalia, but I supported the administration 100% because he was responsible for our boys who served and died.

Just to be clear. Bush Sr. sent the troops to Somalia just before he left office. Clinton inherited Bush Sr.'s commitment of U.S. troops for the U.N. humanitarian mission in Somalia.

We should never have been in Somalia as there was no strategic or national security reason to commit troops there in the first place.

I think there is a way to disagree with what got us in "the war" and how it's been conducted; but it is unacceptable to make your disagreement into such a spectacle that it gives aid and comfort to AMERICA'S enemies, and emboldens them to continue reigning havoc, because they see that they are having a "positive" effect on the likes of you, mudkitty, and your cohorts. You help make the mission of America's enemies easier, mudkitty, by your opposition to the mission of our military. I'm not saying you're on the side of the terrorists; but they are certainly on your side whenever you attack this Administration. Criticism is fine; and yes, even a patriotic duty. But care and responsibility must be exercised, so as to not undermine America's interests and make the fighting all the more difficult for those who stand in harms way on our behalf.

The way our political infighting is, right now, it can only make America appear to be weak, and irresolute. On the question of Iraq, there should be no question: we should all be united toward victory. It will make America safe by presenting a strong America that is not a paper tiger; and it is the right thing to do, as well as the compassionate thing to do.

Just to be clear, I am not questioning your patriotism, mudkitty. Just your judgment and your actions in how you express your dissent during wartime.

Wordsmith, how do you suggest the 60 percent of Americans who now believe going to Iraq was a mistake and who want the troops out of Iraq express dissent? I am just curious.

How sweet of you to say Nanny... but these are matters of life and death, war and peace...sorry to be a buzz kill for you, but I question your judgment as well.

So if you and I question each other's judgment, than how do you expect George WWWWW Bush to solve the problems of they middle east, and how did you EVER expect him to?

numbers schnumbers, where did you get the polling data from and I would like to see the questions asked. Polls are there to be manipulated

Blogger Rob said...

obob, is it your position that the American people are pro-Iraq war and support the surge and an open-ended commitment? Show me your evidence so I can understand why you believe what you believe.

Here are a couple of recent polls and their question items:

LATEST USA/GALLUP POLL (3/23-2/35)

http://www.usatoday.com/news/polls/tables/live/2007-03-26-poll.htm

"In view of the developments since we first sent our troops to Iraq, do you think the United States made a mistake in sending troops to Iraq, or not?" 56% say "Yes, a mistake"

"Would you favor or oppose Congress taking each of the following actions in regards to the war in Iraq?"

"Requiring U.S. troops to meet strict readiness criteria before being deployed to Iraq" 80% favor

"Setting a time-table for withdrawing all U.S. troops from Iraq no later than the fall of 2008" 60 favor

FROM THE LATEST NEWSWEEK POLL (3/14-3/16)

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/17650496/site/newsweek/

"In general, do you favor or oppose President Bush’s decision earlier this year to increase the level of U.S. troops in Iraq?" 64% oppose

"Do you favor or oppose Congressional legislation that would require the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq by the fall of 2008?" 59% favor

PEW RESEARCH POLL (3/26) - 59% want their representative to vote for a troop pullout by August 2008.

The same can't be said for someone so willfully ill informed.

"The way our political infighting is, right now, it can only make America appear to be weak, and irresolute."

I'm sorry, but what is happening in this country right now is called "democracy". It's a pretty interesting concept that I urge those on the right to take a good look at. Maybe you think free speech should be restricted to "zones", like Bush does? Maybe you think our troops are either so stupid or so panty-waist oversensitive that the democratic process in action -- you know, the one they're supposedly fighting for -- could somehow "demoralize" them. Well I don't. I have too much regard for them.

But you know what? There are other people -- hard working, law abiding taxpayers -- who love peace, and want peace, and are willing to speak out loudly for peace. And those people might not like people who make it their job to fight wars. And I understand that. It makes sense. And it is those people - not warriors - who make humanity more humane, and the world a better place.

Also, let's not confuse our military men and women with those who wage war. That dubious distinction goes to politicians, and my opposition is to those who wage illegal, immoral occupations like the one we now find ourselves in. I'm glad you put the world "war" in quotations, Ken. It denotes the falacy of the term. To support the policy of occupation, and those that espouse it, is disgraceful, and everyone opposed to it should oppose it often, loudly, and "spectacularly" (obob!). That doesn't mean I'm giving aid and comfort to terrorists, Oboob, it means I think this "war on terror" is bullshit. You fight terrorism with counter-terrorism. Not occupation. That breeds terrorism. Duh!
