On Your Hands

Hawkeye pointed out this post to me, authored by a retired E-9, which is the non-com equivalent of a General in the US Army. His name is Sergeant Major J.D.Pendry:

On Your Hands

Jimmy Carter, you’re the father of the Islamic Nazi movement. You threw the Shah under the bus, welcomed the Ayatollah home and then lacked the spine to confront the terrorists when they took our embassy and our people hostage. You’re the runner-in-chief.


Bill Clinton, you played ring around the Lewinsky while the terrorists were at war with us. You got us into a fight with them in Somalia, and then you ran from it. Your weak-willed responses emboldened the killers. Each time you failed to respond adequately they grew bolder, until 9/11.


John Kerry, dishonesty is your most prominent attribute. You lied about American Soldiers in Vietnam. Your military service, like your life, is more fiction than fact. You’ve accused our Soldiers of terrorizing women and children in Iraq. You called Iraq the wrong war, wrong place, wrong time, the same words you used to describe Vietnam. You’re a fake. You want to run from Iraq and abandon the Iraqis to murderers just as you did the Vietnamese. Iraq, like Vietnam is another war that you were for, before you were against it.


John Murtha, you said our military was broken. You said we can’t win militarily in Iraq. You accused United States Marines of cold-blooded murder without proof. And said we should redeploy to Okinawa. Okinawa John? And the Democrats call you their military expert. Are you sure you didn’t suffer a traumatic brain injury while you were off building your war hero resume? You’re a sad, pitiable, corrupt and washed up politician. You’re not a Marine sir. You wouldn’t amount to a pimple on a real Marines butt. You’re a phony and a disgrace. Run away John.


Dick Durbin, you accused our Soldiers at Guantanimo of being Nazis, tenders of Soviet style gulags and as bad as the regime of Pol Pot who murdered two million of his own people after your party abandoned South East Asia to the Communists. Now you want to abandon the Iraqis to the same fate. History was not a good teacher for you, was it? See Dick run.


Ted Kennedy, for days on end you held poster sized pictures from Abu Grhaib in front of any available television camera. Al Jazeera quoted you saying that Iraq’s torture chambers were open under new management. Did you see the news this week Teddy? The Islamic Nazis demonstrated real torture for you again. If you truly supported our troops, you’d show the world poster-sized pictures of that atrocity and demand the annihilation of the perpetrators of it. Your legislation stripping support from the South Vietnamese led to a communist victory there. You’re a bloated fool bent on repeating the same historical blunder that turned freedom-seeking people over to homicidal, genocidal maniacs. To paraphrase John Murtha, all while sitting on your wide, gin-soaked rear-end in Washington.


Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Carl Levine, Barbara Boxer, Diane Feinstein, Russ Feingold, Hillary Clinton, Pat Leahy, Chuck Schumer et al ad nauseam. Every time you stand in front of television cameras and broadcast to the Islamic Nazis that we went to war because our President lied. That the war is wrong and our Soldiers are torturers. That we should leave Iraq, you give the Islamic butchers – the same ones that tortured and mutilated American Soldiers - cause to think that we’ll run away again and all they have to do is hang on a little longer.


American news media, the New York Times particularly. Each time you publish stories about national defense secrets and our intelligence gathering methods, you become one with the sub-human pieces of camel dung that torture and mutilate the bodies of American Soldiers. You can’t strike up the courage to publish cartoons, but you can help Al Qaeda destroy my country. Actually, you are more dangerous to us than Al Qaeda is. Think about that each time you face Mecca to admire your Pulitzer.


You are America’s axis of idiots. Your Collective Stupidity will destroy us. Self-serving politics and terrorist abetting news scoops are more important to you than our national security or the lives of innocent civilians and Soldiers. It bothers you that defending ourselves gets in the way of your elitist sport of politics and your ignorant editorializing. There is as much blood on your hands as is on the hands of murdering terrorists. Don’t ever doubt that. Your frolics will only serve to extend this war as they extended Vietnam. If you want our Soldiers home, as you claim, knock off the crap and try supporting your country ahead of supporting your silly political aims and aiding our enemies. Yes, I’m questioning your patriotism. Your loyalty ends with self. I’m also questioning why you’re stealing air that decent Americans could be breathing. You don’t deserve the protection of our men and women in uniform. You need to run away from this war – this country. Leave the war to the people who have the will to see it through and the country to people who are willing to defend it.


No Commander in Chief, you don’t get off the hook either. Our country has two enemies. Those who want to destroy us from the outside and those who attempt it from within. Your Soldiers are dealing with the outside force. It’s your obligation to support them by confronting the axis of idiots. America must hear it from you that these people are harming our country, abetting the enemy and endangering our safety. Well up a little anger please, and channel it toward the appropriate target. You must prosecute those who leak national security secrets to the media. You must prosecute those in the media who knowingly publish those secrets. Our Soldiers need you to confront the enemy that they cannot.


They need you to do it now.

I've been saying that about Carter for years.

Hmmm, seems he left out Reagan. Why does Reagan always get a pass in these right wing ramblings???

Reagan armed the Mojahedin in Afghanistan that eventually evolved into the Taliban and also sold Saddam Hussein "dual-use" items, including helicopters and chemicals.

And then more of this blaming of Clinton for having to spend so much time and energy dealing with a "scandal" over a bj. Said "scandal" being the sole pathetic outcome of a $47 million dollar wingnut witch hunt.

Please, there is enough blame to go around for the current state of affairs. It's not all Democrats, is it?

Reagan was busy crushing the Soviet Empire, and working to make our economy the powerhouse it grew to be in the 90s. But if it makes you feel better, I was pissed to read about his amnesty dung-hill.

"It's not all Democrats, is it?"

Absolutely not. Right on there.

Highboy,

Excellent job of sidestepping the point.

The Taliban, Saddam, Iran?

Every administration in power for two terms is going to have effects, good and ill, seen and unforeseen, far into the future. The same with Reagan.

Blowback can be a bitch.

What point? You couldn't mean this:

"Reagan armed the Mojahedin in Afghanistan that eventually evolved into the Taliban and also sold Saddam Hussein "dual-use" items, including helicopters and chemicals."

Because I'm not arguing against your point. Its just hilarious to see you, once again, ignore the issue of the post and fire back with a "they did it too" response. Most childish. Now back to the issue: Carter, who by the way, in ONE term managed to screw the whole middle east, and subsequently the world, in one deft move of ignoring and refusing to aid one of our biggest allies at that time, who is now one of our biggest threats. Dig for Republican debacles all you want, but YOUR left-wing nut hero is to blame. Try not to be such a partisan hack, and hold your heroes accountable instead of defending them by pointing the finger at those who ahve made our country great.

"Blowback can be a bitch."

It sure can.

Was I ignoring Carter? Hmmm, looking through these comments....nope, sure doesn't look like that was my point at all, nope.

The point was that the original post sited Democrats only, blaming everything on them while blithely ignoring huge failings on the right.

I'm not "justifying", I'm just pointing out the unbalanced nature of the original screed.
