Having dodged his own foreign war, how ironic that Chimpy spoke to the Veterans of Foreign Wars today.
The Underwhere? Oath
As veterans and soon to be veterans, you have placed the nation’s security before your own lives. You took an oath to defend our flag and our freedom, and you kept that oath underseas and under fire.
The Terrorists Made Us Do It
Yet the terrorists have made it clear that Iraq is the central front in their war against humanity. And so we must recognize Iraq as the central front in the war against the terrorists.
A Vision of Paradise, Bush-style
Dictatorships seem orderly — when one man makes all the decisions, there is no need for negotiation or compromise.
A Warning Shot
The American people know the difference between responsible and irresponsible debate when they see it. They know the difference between honest critics who question the way the war is being prosecuted and partisan critics who claim that we acted in Iraq because of oil, or because of Israel, or because we misled the American people. And they know the difference between a loyal opposition that points out what is wrong, and defeatists who refuse to see that anything is right.
So I ask all Americans to hold their elected leaders to account, and demand a debate that brings credit to our democracy — not comfort to our adversaries.
