House Democrats Offer Plan to Ban Use of ‘Global War on Terror’

House Minority Leader John Boehner blasted a Democrat-backed plan on Wednesday to ban the use of “global War on Terror” and “long war” in the 2008 defense budget bill.

A memo sent to Democratic staffers on the House Armed Services Committee instructed the aides not to use the specific phrases, the Military Times newspaper reported.

So, what would the Dhimmis (Dems) prefer to call a war on the Islamofascists worldwide? The gentle baking of cupcakes?

Erin Conaton, the committee’s staff director, sent out the 15-page memo titled “Style Guide for Defense Authorization Report.”

“When referencing military operations throughout the world, please be as specific as possible. Please avoid using colloquialisms such as, ‘the war on terrorism, or the ‘Long War’ Please do not use the term ‘global war on terrorism,’ ” according to the memo.

Late Wednesday afternoon, a source told FOX News that the panel had sent out a revised version making it clear that there was “no political intent behind” the wording.

Horse manure! You can slap lipstick on a pig, but it’s still a pig!

“How do Democrats expect America to fight and win a war they deny is even taking place?” Boehner said.

If I cover my eyes, and can’t see you, does it mean you aren’t really there?

“It’s no wonder Democrats don’t like the phrases ‘global War on Terror,’ they have completely failed to take the threat of global terrorism seriously,” Boehner said.

Republicans weren’t consulted about the changes, said Josh Holly, a spokesman for Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif., ranking member of the committee.

The aging hippies in D.C. evidently haven’t stopped toking. One aspect of being a grownup is NOT to bury you head in the sand, or up a terrorist’s hind end.

  1. Using ephemeral phrases like GWOT allows most anything to be lumped in (think SWAT teams in Walworth County). By being specific about the use of the money the presiding party will be allowed to keep so much from being wasted and will allow the anti-terror efforts to focus on solutions that stand a chance instead of the 5 years of failure that the GOP has been serving up.
