Deja Vu All Over Again
My, how time flies - here it's been over a week since I posted anything. Of course, getting vertical helps.
Over the last year or so I've been looking at the situation in this country and a few things struck me - especially after last week's vote in Congress:
- We're currently in a war that's being micro-managed from Washington.
- We're trying to fight guerrillas with (mostly) conventional means. Our enemy can cross borders freely while our troops must stay where they are.
- The three traditional broadcast TV stations have used their news programs to turn the population against the war without any word about the consequences.
- Someone dug up Hanoi Jane and pulled the stake out of her heart so she can protesting again (I'm waiting for a picture of her building an IED).
- There have already been instances of people spitting on troops returning home from overseas.
- Now we have the Democrats back in power. Since March 2003 they've been screaming, crying, bitching, pissing and moaning that we don't have enough troops in Iraq.
- When the President sends over 20,000 more troops, they cry about that and try to pass a resolution against it.
- The Dems have put Murtha in charge of the House Defense committee - kind of like putting a sex offender in charge of an all-girl's kindergarten.To any of you from my generation who served in Southeast Asia, is there anything here that sounds familiar?
