Calling us traitors.
"It must be getting overly clear by now that our enemies in Iraq and our domestic leftists are speaking the same language quite often - because they both have the same aim: the defeat of the United States in the War on Terrorism.
I've said it before and I'll keep right on saying it - this is wartime; a time for choosing. Which side are you on? You can be on the side of the United States and support our military effort to absolute victory, or you can be a traitor...those are your two options."
This is wrong on so many levels. The invasion of Iraq has hurt our cause in the war on terror on so many levels. Please read if you haven't already, the last several posts on this blog for documented evidence of the harm done to OUR side of this war because of this misbegotten policy. It is precisely because of my absolute belief that the war on terror MUST be won that I am so dismayed by the Bushovich Iraqi boon doggle.
Would those of us who agree with my viewpoint be so inflammatory as to accuse those who don't see things our way over the Iraq war as being traitorous?
Perhaps ill informed or blindly obedient to the Bush administration (otherwise known as a Koolaid drinker). But to sling the term "traitor" around in these times simply because we dont see eye to eye hardly speaks well of your dogma. It brings to mind the statement by Whitehouse spokesman Trent Duffy, that President Bush "can understand that people don't share his view that we must win the war on terror, and we cannot retreat and cut and run from terrorists, but he just has a different view." This from the Administration that has seen during its term in office an explosion in the numbers of terrorists we have to "fight over there", the escape of the mastermind of the 9/11 plot from any punishment for the deed, and the loss of nearly all of our unanimous international support for our efforts in the war on terror due to its Iraqi quagmire. We are traitors? Get your priorities straight, stop drinking the Koolaid and get a clue here...
