Another Orwellian Maneuver by a Soros-backed group: Accuse the opposition of the very thing you are promoting!
According to CNSNews.com...
McCain's War Policy Called 'Surrender' to Bin Laden
An outrageous assertion...
"'Republican presidential candidate Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) supports a policy that has 'essentially surrendered to Osama bin Laden,' the leader of an anti-war veterans' group said on Monday."
By a veteran whose group is supported by George Soros...
"Jon Soltz, a veteran of Iraqi Operation Freedom and the Kosovo campaign, is the co-founder and executive director of VoteVets.org. On Monday, as part of a conference call sponsored by anti-war liberals, Soltz noted that '90 percent' of the U.S. Army is in Iraq. 'There is not one of our 42 combat brigades that could deploy anywhere in the world in the next 72 hours. What does America do when there is another Hurricane Katrina? What does America do on our border security issues?' Soltz asked."
"Soltz's VoteVets, which includes Iraq war critic Gen. Wesley Clark on its board of directors, is leading the liberal charge against decorated war hero John McCain, apparently operating on the theory that it takes a veteran to criticize a veteran. The group presses the point that even 'patriotic Americans' and war veterans can and do oppose President Bush's war in Iraq -- and McCain's support for that war."
"On Monday, VoteVets.org joined MoveOn.org in an effort to link the high cost of the war in Iraq with economic woes back home. MoveOn.org announced the lobbying and public education campaign on Monday in a conference call with reporters."
Anything to defeat the Bush Administration...
It is Soros' blind hatred of the Bush Administration, coupled with his billion-plus dollar war-chest, that is fueling much of the negativity surrounding the United States today. By supporting the democrat party, Soros appears to be hoping for a weakening of the American military, intelligence efforts and to convert us to his more enlightened "pacifist" viewpoint.
Soros apparently believes that even terrorist groups like Hamas and Fatah act rationally and can be reasoned with... and that is rationale enough to cease hostilities and open a dialogue with the people who believe that their war is religiously just, that individual lives have no meaning other than to serve Allah in any way their enlightened leaders decide ;and that one can simply look beyond a history filled with blind religious rage against "non-believers" and accept a universal peace accord.
The false trail...
"Soltz noted that most U.S. troops are fighting far from the remote area where al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden is rumored to be hiding. 'They [the U.S. Army] are stuck in Iraq at a time when Osama bin Laden is on the Afghan-Pakistan border," he said. "We have one tenth the amount of troops there than we have in Iraq, which is not related to the central front on the war on terror,' Soltz said."
While we do not have first-hand knowledge of the strength of Al Qaeda, Bin Ladin and his band of terrorists remain, at best, a symbolic target. Why we should move heaven, earth and our military to kill this single man and his immediate supporters cannot be justified in the larger scope of world events. While it might be nice to have Bin Laden demonstrably dead, do not think, even for a moment, that other similarly-inclined leaders would not pop-up to assume his power base. There is always factional infighting in such groups and while nobody will regain the mythic symbolic stature of Bin Laden, they can prove to be just as deadly.
Soros: overlooking the truth...
Soros appears either unwilling or incapable of seeing the current Middle East situation as a somewhat unwinnable struggle between cultures in which the opposition only respects brutal strength and the will to employ it to subjugate ever-increasing numbers of people.
Attacking McCain as a proxy for George Bush...
The democrats fear McCain. When democrats speak of legislative change -- McCain has done it -- by dealing with big issues such as campaign reform, immigration reform and global warming. When democrats speak of creating bi-partisan support -- McCain has done it -- by creating and supporting McCain-Feingold(D-WI), McCain-Kennedy (D-MA), McCain-Lieberman (D-CT). And when democrats speak of being able to deal effectively with the military, McCain has the better track record and respect of the military.
So the democrats need to link him to a mostly unpopular president and his unpopular policies. Policies which still may be proven right by those who examine our history many years from now when the impact of the Bush policies can be measured and weighed against the test of time.
And who better to do it than another veteran?
"As part of the new effort, VoteVets has released an ad featuring an Iraq veteran with her infant son. The ad blasts Sen. McCain's stance that U.S. troops will remain in Iraq for as long as they're needed there."
"'This is my little boy,' the veteran says in the VoteVets ad. 'He was born a year after I came back from Iraq. What kind of commitment are you making to him? How about a thousand years of affordable health care, or a thousand years of keeping America safe? Can we afford that for my child, Senator McCain? Or have you already promised to spend trillions -- in Baghdad?' The ad will run on cable TV stations in the Washington, D.C., area."
Wake up you idiot!
Our enemy wants to kill your little boy -- only because he was born a non-Muslim and will not submit to Allah as defined by corrupt religious leaders. And they wants to kill you, the rest of your family, your neighbors and everyone else in the United States for much the same reason. This blind hatred is institutionally inculcated into children at an early age thanks to "our friends" in Saudi Arabia who have spread their violent Wahabist sect around the globe -- infecting all it touches.
If you really believe that there are moderate Muslims, ask yourself why they haven't repudiated the bastardization of their religion? Ask yourself why they haven't condemned the religious crazies? As why they haven't removed their leadership who engages in terrorist tactics? And while you are asking, ask why they simply don't acknowledge Israel as a nation and live in peace?
The sad truth is that Israel could give back all of the land taken for protective purposes during the wars -- and NOTHING will change. Israel is the stalking horse that Mid-East dictators use to keep their people in line while they siphon-off billions of dollars of public money to be used by the profligate princes who party in England and other places -- doing what they dare not do at home under the penalty of death.
The closest to a benign dictatorship can be found in Dubai, where it is all about money, commerce and open trade,
Dealing with the enemy...
How do you effectively deal with an enemy who professes that their religion is the "religion of peace," allows 12th century barbarisms as part of their legal code, and can barely contain their people from rioting when encountering anything remotely critical about their religious practices? How do you effectively deal with a country whose leadership is so afraid of rioting and overthrow, that they will do or say anything to appease the religious fanatics and other assorted crazies?
An example from Reuters...
"Pakistani Internet service providers may have inadvertently blocked the popular YouTube Web site across the world at the weekend when they restricted local access to the site, a telecommunications official said."
"Pakistan ordered local Internet service providers to block access to the site because it was running material insulting to Islam, a Pakistani industry official said on Sunday."
"A government telecommunications official said the initial order to restrict local access might have mistakenly affected users around the world."
"The authority had earlier justified its order to block access in Pakistan saying it was necessary to avoid unrest in the overwhelming Muslim country of 160 million people."
"'It has the potential to cause more unrest and possible loss of life and property across the country,' the authority said in a statement on Monday, referring to the material."
"Publication of caricatures of the Prophet Mohammad published in Danish newspapers in 2005 sparked widespread anger and deadly protests in several Muslim countries, including Pakistan."
"Protests have been held in recent weeks in Pakistan after the republication of one of the cartoons."
"On Tuesday, about 150 students staged a rally in the eastern city of Multan city and burned Danish and U.S. flags to express anger over the reprinting of the cartoon."
I don't care how well Barack Obama speaks or how tough Hillary looks when she scowls, both are paper tigers committed to talking when the enemy only understands strength and resolve. Anything else is perceived as a sign of weakness. It is believed that the democrats may allow an attack on American assets here and abroad before upsetting their far-left supporters and spin-testing the possible response scenarios for political fall-out. It has happened with Clinton when he failed to respond to attacks abroad -- or responded half-heartedly.
No matter what you think, say or do: Reagan was tough, Bush is perceived as tough and with McCain you have the "real deal made of steel."
McCain acknowledges the political dangers in pursuing his present course -- and, yet, presses on...
"Sen. John McCain has counseled patience -- and success -- in Iraq, saying the "costs of retreat" would bring chaos in Iraq as well as terrorists to U.S. soil."
"On Monday, McCain admitted that the war in Iraq is one element by which his candidacy will be judged. At first he said he'd 'lose' the election if the American people think the U.S. is losing the war in Iraq."
"Then McCain backed off his 'stark' comment about losing: 'Let me just put it this way,' he said: 'Americans will judge my candidacy on how, first and foremost, on how they believe I can lead the country both from our economy and for national security.' McCain said there's no doubt that how Americans judge Iraq will have a 'direct relation to their judgment of me -- my support of the surge. Clearly I am tied to it to a large degree.'"
Another reason to defeat Barack Obama...
"MoveOn.org recently endorsed Democrat Barack Obama for president. Obama has promised an immediate troop withdrawal from Iraq and a greater military commitment in Afghanistan."
Once again, proving to our allies that we do not finish what we start and remain an unreliable ally. Not to mention the "Pol Pot-like" revenge and ritual killings of innocent men, women and children the day we pull out.
Another armchair general and amateur diplomat with very little experience in anything by being a fairly intense orator.
"'When we end this war in Iraq, we can finally finish the fight in Afghanistan,' Obama said in a policy speech in September. 'That is why I propose stepping up our commitment there, with at least two additional combat brigades and a comprehensive program of aid and support to help Afghans help themselves.''
Obama supports an immediate withdrawal of combat troops from Iraq, and he stresses diplomacy over a military solution."
One should remember that Obama is an empty suit with a good facade -- and people are projecting their hopes and dreams on his blank canvass. He is Iran's choice for president -- leaving Iraq is the best thing thaat could possibly happen to Syria, Iran and Egypt. Talk about high gas and commodity prices now, wait until you see the IRAQ-IRAN version of OPEC.
What can YOU do?
Tell Soros and his band of unrealistic pacifists to go to hell by voting for a somewhat conservative John McCain.
Appreciate the somewhat ironic fact that McCain is now under attack from some of the tax exempt 527 groups he helped to create with his McCain-Feingold campaign reform. Some believe that Soros supported McCain-Feingold to further his own interests in creating unaccountable political groups and insuring his ability to remain a player in the political pantheon. It is rumored that Soros-directed groups have amassed at least $20 million dollars in an attack McCain fund.
Do not vote for any candidate or current politician who is willing to subvert the safety, security, sovereignty and economic strength of the United States or limit an individual's right of self-defense for their personal philosophy, power, prestige or profits.
