Action Against Iran?
by Ivan Eland as seen on consortiumnews.com
In 2003, Iraq tried to show that it had no weapons
of mass destruction, even letting United Nations inspectors
search any site of their choosing. But George
W. Bush ordered the bloody invasion anyway, killing tens of
thousands of Iraqis and imprisoning the country's
former leaders. Iraq's bitter lesson was not lost on Iran and
other so-called "rogue" states, which now see
little reason to disarm and cooperate with the international
community. In this guest essay, Ivan Eland looks
at the looming confrontation with Iran

Blasts Bush on Eavesdropping
Hillary called Bush's explanations for spying
on us without warrants "strange" and "far-fetched"
Wednesday in blistering criticism ahead of the
president's State of the Union address.
"Obviously, I support tracking down terrorists.
I think that's our obligation. But I think it can
be done in a lawful way," the 2008 Democratic
presidential front-runner said.
"Their argument that it's rooted in the authority
to go after al-Qaida is far-fetched. Their argument
that it's rooted in the Constitution inherently
is kind of strange because we have FISA and FISA
operated very effectively and it wasn't
that hard to get their permission," she said.
Bush claims the process takes too long, even tho
the warrants can be requested after the fact.
So is this good news or bad news to those who
want a non-Hillary president?
and Illusion Worthy of Dickens
by She who hates everybody
As the White House drives its truckload of lies
around the country, it becomes ever clearer that
Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Hillary Clinton, John
Kerry and Al Gore are just not the right people
to respond to the administration's national security
We got mired in Iraq in the first place partly
because Dick Cheney and Rummy thought that,
post-Vietnam and post-Clinton, America was seen
as soft. One shock-and-awe session,
one tyrant stomped on, they reckoned, and the
Arab world would no longer see Americans as wimps.
That reasoning turned out to be dangerous, flying
in the face of warnings from our own intelligence experts.
"The Dems need to drum up a decent message so
they look as if they know what the Dickens they're doing
before the November election. Otherwise, they'll
look like bowed supplicants holding out gruel cups to

What the Dems have failed to understand in recent
years is that you win by winning. It's that simple.
Americans respect winners. Winning changes perceptions
in and of itself.
You can't be perceived as strong on national
security, when you don't have the guts
to defend yourself from attacks that you don't
have any guts.
We stood behind John Kerry even when he wouldn't
stand up for himself.
John Kerry should stop with his meaningless petitions
and stand up for democracy.

And I asked him why and ge said

the Ball Again
by Arianna Huffington
The Democrats don't seem to know what the Republicans
know: that the GOP is losing ground
on its core issue of national security. That's
why Bush is planning to shift his State of the Union focus
away from Iraq and onto an attack on rising health
care costs. And the re-emergence of the architect
of 9/11 -- promising to bring further death and
destruction to our door, and touting Iraq's help as an
al-Qaeda recruiting tool -- can only further
weaken Bush's national security standing.
So why don't the Democrats have the guts to aggressively
go after Bush on the issue?
The Democrats will never become the majority party
until they can prove to the American people that they
have a better plan for keeping us safe. And that
means having someone like Jack Murtha give the State of the
Union response -- someone with the authority
to make the point that, on every level, Iraq is the wrong priority.
She's right - the Dems are in a permanant state
They can't even get ahead of Bush when the country
has turned on him.

Laden Should Be Taken Seriously
The Giggling Murderer, defending his illegal
spying on American citizens, said Wednesday
that Americans should take Osama seriously when
he says he's going to attack again.
"When he says he's going to hurt the American
people again, or try to, he means it," Bush told reporters
after visiting Snop Central, the NSA. "I take
it seriously, and the people of NSA take it seriously."
Uh, excuse me, President Asshole, but YOU were the one who said,
"Bin Laden doesn't concern me - I don't think
about him very much," a few years ago.
If you had the brain of a nine year old, you could make up your mind.

"We have seen this movie before. The history
of the congressional Republican leadership since
it took power in January 1995 is one of coups,
scandals, and early retirements. Every time a Gingrich,
Livingston, or DeLay gets knocked off his
perch, a Hastert, Blunt, Wamp, or similarly unremarkable
and unknown pol instantly emerges from the
shadows of obscurity to replace him. Republicans in the
House are like an army of the undead. No matter
how many get picked off, more are always on the way."

Our military is about to buss open
Stretched by frequent troop rotations to Iraq
and Afghanistan, the Army has become a "thin green line"
that could snap unless relief comes soon, according
to a study for the Pentagon.
Andrew Krepinevich, a retired Army officer who
wrote the report under a Pentagon contract, concluded that
the Army cannot sustain the pace of troop deployments
to Iraq long enough to break the back of the insurgency.
He also suggested that the Pentagon's decision
to begin reducing the force in Iraq this year was driven in part
by a realization that the Army was overextended.
As evidence, Krepinevich points to the Army's
2005 recruiting slump - missing its recruiting goal for the
first time since 1999 - and its decision to offer
much bigger enlistment bonuses and other incentives.
"You really begin to wonder just how much stress
and strain there is on the Army, how much longer it can continue,"
he said in an interview. The report gives
a more sobering picture than military officials offer in public.
Remember Der Monkey in the 2000 campaign? "Tell
the military that help is on the way."
Since them, he's done everything to the military that he falsely accused
...yet the military families love him soooo muuuuch.

Ted Kennedy on Robert Bork
The modern benchmark for challenging judicial
nominees based on their ideology is the speech
Ted Kennedy gave after Reagan nominated Robert
Bork for the Supreme Court in July 1987.
"Robert Bork's America," Kennedy warned, "is a
land in which women would be forced into back-alley abortions,
blacks would sit at segregated lunch counters,
rogue police could break down citizens' doors in midnight raids,
schoolchildren could not be taught about evolution,
writers and artists could be censored at the whim of government,
and the doors of the federal courts would be
shut on the fingers of millions of citizens for whom the judiciary is
--and is often the only--protector of the individual
rights that are at the heart of our democracy."
I hear both MA senators talking a good game, but talk
doesn't bring home the bacon.

it's their duty to stand up.
