North Korea, Iran, Afghanistan, Iraq, And Other Democrat Lies

Ah, yes, we can go back to old stories of the Democrat’s attacks on the Bush administration and smell them like some overly-large bottle of extraordinarily cheap perfume.  Given that North Korea is so big in the news over its launch of a ballistic missile, let’s take in the stories from when Bush was the guy wearing the bulls eye on his back:

Headline from January 13, 2003: “Democrats criticize Bush’s N. Korea policy.”  And from March 5, 2003: “Democrats Criticize Bush Over North Korea.”

Headline from March 31, 2004: “House Democrats Criticize U.S. North Korea Policy;

From October 9, 2006:

WASHINGTON – The shock waves of the North Korean nuclear weapons test rumbled through the 2006 campaign Monday, with Democrats quickly seizing the chance to argue that President Bush and the Republicans had neglected the North Korean threat.

Headline from November 16, 2006: “Democrats Blast Bush on . Korea.”  And the opening another story from November 16, 2006:

The Bush administration came under fierce attack yesterday from Democrats for its North Korea policy, with the incoming chairman of the House International Relations Committee saying that change is “long overdue” and that the United States should allow its chief nuclear arms negotiator to visit Pyongyang, North Korea’s capital.

One article written by two prominent Democratic officials rattled sabers, said, “if North Korea persists in its launch preparations, the United States should immediately make clear its intention to strike and destroy the North Korean Taepodong missile before it can be launched.”

You want to rattle those sabers now that YOUR hands will be the ones drenched in blood, Democrats?  I didn’t think so.  Democrats ruthlessly attacked Bush from every side, regardless of what he did or didn’t do – and even attacked him for not being aggressive enough (when they had ABSOLUTELY NO INTENTION of ever actually being aggressive themselves) when it suited their interests to do so.  Now that they’re in power, they will go back to doing what they do best: being appeasing weaklings.  “Don’t fire that missile, or we’ll go run and tell the UN” – who will of course do absolutely nothing.

A World Net Daily article kind of encapsulates it all: “Virtuosos of the attack mode,” detailing Democrats going after Bush with one unrelenting attack after another on every issue under the sun.  Another article points out the sheer vicious hypocrisy of Democrats for attacking Bush for going it alone in Iraq, even as they attack Bush for not going it alone on North Korea.

Democrats ragged on Bush throughout his presidency on North Korea, and now they should be held completely accountable for absolutely every single thing that happens there.  But as nasty as Democrats were over North Korea, it doesn’t even begin to hold a candle to how absolutely despicable they were on Iran.

Here’s a December 5, 2007 headline of Democrats blasting Bush on Iran:  “THE NATION – Democrats rip Bush’s Iran policy – Presidential candidates say a new intelligence report shows that the administration has been talking too tough.”  And of course it now doesn’t matter one iota that it was the DEMOCRATS who should have been blasted, because Bush was right, and they were completely wrong, and now Iran has enough nuclear material to make not one but FIFTY nuclear weapons.

Thank you for covering for Iran’s nuclear program, for all those Bush years, Democrats.  Now the resulting nuclear Iran is your baby – and you’d better softly coo while you gently rock it or it will blow up in your faces and engulf the world.

How about Afghanistan?  Obama repeatedly blasted Bush for not making Afghanistan the central front in the war on terror (which he’s now renamed to ‘Overseas Contingency Operation’ in a naked attempt to disguise reality with political blather) with a larger commitment of troops and resources, but now that he’s “the man,” he is clearly not willing to commit the kind of force that he himself argued would be needed.  It was all just talk.   He likewise blamed Bush for not pursuing international cooperation from other countries in Afghanistan, but that was just a lot of talk, too, and Obama if anything is actually getting FEWER European troops in Afghanistan.  Now, for all of his posturing over Bush’s “global isolation,” Obama gets to find out how truly utterly useless “the world” is when it really matters.

What are we even supposed to say about this kind of deceit, this unrelenting attack regardless of what the facts actually are?

Well, turnabout is fair play, and now it’s OUR turn to unrelentingly blast Democrats for their failures on North Korea and every single other place under the sun, isn’t it?  And therein lies the rub.

You see, I used to support the President OF EITHER PARTY where I thought he was right, and oppose him where I thought he was wrong.  But that isn’t the way Democrats roll.  They just attack for the sake of sheer partisan advantage, and frankly didn’t give a damn what they were attacking over, as long as the attack accomplished its purpose of bringing down Bush and Republicans.

Witnessing the last eight years of Bush Derangement Syndrome have made me more cynical – and unfortunately more willing to tolerate the sort of vicious, unrelentingly critical, backbiting, underhanded, dishonest, disingenuous, and deceitful tactics, only now against Democrats – than I have ever been in my life.  Democrats have degenerated politics into a state where either conservatives abandon the political field altogether to preserve their integrity, or else declare the same brand of total war on Democrats that Democrats have long-since declared on Republicans.

Part of me wants to value honesty and sound political action; but another part of me – taught by Democrats on how to win through poisoning the process – recognizes that we are in total war with the Democrats, and understands that you have to use the tactics of your enemy if you hope to prevail over your enemy.  If they use poison gas attacks on your soldiers, you use poison gas on theirs; if they firebomb your cities, you firebomb theirs.  Maybe at some future point both sides agree to stop, but you return sucker-punch with sucker-punch until that day comes.

As for me, I will try to walk the tightrope.  I will try to maintain my values, and attack only when those values are being trodden upon or undermined.

Unlike Democrats, I want our troops to win – even when President Obama is their commander-in-chief.   I’m just not willing to undermine our troops for the sake of sheer political expedience.  And I’m certainly not willing to personally demonize them as a cowardly backhanded attack on the president in time of war.

Unlike the Obama Administration, I’m not willing to create blatantly false “facts” in order to demagogue my way to unconstitutional policies, whether “pro-conservative agenda” or not.  And I’m sure-as-hell not willing to blame my own country on foreign soil.

Mark Twain famously said, “A lie can get halfway around the world before the truth can even get its boots on.”  And the Democrats put that sad fact of human nature to good use for the last eight years.  But now their lies must be exposed for all to see.

Ultimately, we simply can’t match Democrats in loathsome-for-loathsome; we have to recognize that they are simply far superior in their loathsomeness.  Somehow we have to continue to count on our ability to expose liberal slander and lies rather than to try to match liberal tactics and drum up slander and lies of our own.   We have to hope that there are still enough American people who care about the truth to rise up and make a difference in future elections.

    Seriously? Have you ever heard of partisan politics? It’s been going on for two centuries.

    The mainstream media wouldn’t do it. So we are trying to get your important messages to the American people. This post is a suggested read at, http://aresay.blogspot.com/

    Partisan politics have been going on for two centuries – and more. But the sort of crap that we’ve seen with Democrats rooting for America to be defeated – and even proclaiming defeat even as the president was embracing a strategy that would lead to victory – represents the abject nadir of democracy.

    It’s one thing to be “partisan,” but another to attack a president for claiming that a country like Iran is a nuclear threat when YOU ARE the lying weasel. And now we’re going to see a whole new escalation in terror with a nuclear Iran.

    Sorry, but America has never witnessed anything so vile as the modern Democratic Party.
