Soldier’s Response to Runnin’ Reid

Filed under: Opinion — olbroad @ 10:03

Taking lid off ‘powder keg’?

Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev., said President Bush’s prerequisite desire to have a “clean” emergency war spending bill was wrong. Reid’s party’s prerequisites are under debate in the bill. I would have loved to see him try his pork and withdrawal deadlines in similar bills during World War I and World War II.

The United Nations passed the resolution to put weapons inspectors into Iraq. Twelve years of U.N. inaction passed after the inspectors were ejected. Congress approved Bush’s Iraq war. Since then, thousands of corpses were found from Saddam’s “domestic policy agenda.” With 12 years I could hide the Great Pyramid. I still don’t see a lot of border restrictions between Iran or Syria and Iraq.

As for schools, two years ago, actor Gary Sinise had to beg to get on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” to get word out that he was supplying Iraqi schools the U.S. military had already built. No “real” U.S. news program would cover it.

On the “Late Show with David Letterman,” Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., said the U.S. shouldn’t go to war unless we know the intel is good. I love that one … what, you’re going to just go ask the enemy directly? Intel is as good as it is, and unless you have agents in the enemy government, it’s going to be a lot of projection and guesswork.

Congress is most certainly trying to give away our movement schedule in a bill so that all sides in Iraq know when the all-out civil war is going to start.

Doesn’t anyone see we are keeping a lid on that powder keg?

I wonder how often Reid got whupped in school for being a jackass!



  1. I think we’ll soon see our “leaders” again begin to reiterate the “be seen and not heard” policy in the military. (it was big during the cold war) Too bad, the guys/gals on site have something to say. It won’t be active “cencership”, it’ll just be “strongly advised”. I just don’t see the “freedom of speach” crowd having the ba##s to listen to what needs to be said for much longer.

  2. Of course they aren’t going to listen. It’s not what they want to hear. Freedom of speech is only free if it agrees with them. :/
