I think you are completely right and I totally agree with you and Sanchez.

But just you wait. The local loyal fans of Bush will find something to denigrate you and general Sanchez... you'll soon be branded something between a defeatist, a "liberal" (horror!!), and a traitor.


Take care.

Oh, you can rest assured that the right wing venom machine is already working full time on turning general Sanchez into a traitor, coward and wimp. Remember, John Kerry was a weakling for spending two tours of duty as a decorated swift boat officer, and a traitor for protesting the war after his discharge while Bush was the intrepid hero for evading Vietnam and deserting from his Alabama Guard duty. Every single decorated general speaking against the war has been turned by the right wing venom machine into a fan of jihadist terrorism, a traitor and an anti-American cut-and-run coward.

Everyone knows that Iraq was handed over to State, and an ineffectual State at that, too soon. Sanchez was sandbagged for Abu Ghraib even though it was strictly a media event that should have been handled with one Court Martial, 5 company punishments and a letter in a company commander's jacket. Bush could have scotched the fuss but he didn't. Sanchez did good, and his criticism was on.
Some people think flying Continental Air Defense on a Delta Dagger hardly is shirking. Some people consider National Guard service to be draft dodging. Some people have so much hate that they can not see straight. Pity.

The USA-haters and Arab-haters that shredded our Constitution and orchestrated the horrifying War on Muslims are victorious... unless we hunt them down and bring them to justice.

And notice how the same mainstream media that lied about WMDs are also unwilling to call for a full investigation of the 9/11 attack.

Isn't this is the same mainstream media who has repeatedly endorsed amnesty for illegals and unsecured borders for many decades?

Ever get the feeling you're being lied to by people who really hate your guts?
