the truth only hurts when it should

On Tursday, April 19, U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said on he told President George W. Bush the Iraq war was lost and the recent U.S. troop increase had accomplished nothing.

"This is the message I took to the president," Reid said at a news conference.
"Now I believe myself . . . that this war is lost, and that the surge is not accomplishing anything, as indicated by the extreme violence in Iraq yesterday," said Reid, of Nevada.

"I know I was like the odd guy out yesterday at the White House, but at least I told him what he needed to hear, not what he wanted to hear," he added.

On April 24, at the Rockingham County Republican Party's annual Lincoln Day Dinner in Manchester, NH, Rudy Giuliani said the following:

"This war ends when they stop planning to come here and kill us, but until then, if I have anything to say about it, the lesson that I learned coming out of September 11, 2001, is: never, ever again will this country be on defense waiting for them to attack us. (applause) The United States of America will be on offense (applause) and make no mistake about it, the Democrats want to put us back on defense."
"The Democrats -- and I could make a lot of other points about this -- do not understand the full nature and scope of the terrorists' war against us. But I listened a little bit to the Democratic debates and I think I could be slightly wrong about this, but I think this is almost correct. If one of them gets elected it's almost like we're going on defense, where we've got a timetable for withdrawal of Iraq. We're going to wave the white flag there. We're going to try to cut back on the Patriot Act. We're going to cut back on electronic surveillance. We're going to cut back on interrogation. We're going to cut back, cut back, cut back -- and we'll be back in our pre-September 11 mentality of being on defense."

Yesterday, the Democratic presidential pretenders all weighed in on Giuliani's remarks:

Illinois Sen. Barack Obama said Giuliani, who was in office on Sept. 11, 2001, should not be making the terrorist threat into "the punchline of another political attack."
"Rudy Giuliani today has taken the politics of fear to a new low and I believe Americans are ready to reject those kind of politics," Obama said in a statement.

Former North Carolina Sen. John Edwards said Giuliani knows better than to suggest there is a "superior Republican way to fight terrorism." Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton said protecting the country from terrorism "shouldn't be a political football."
"It should be a solemn responsibility that all of us pledge to fulfill regardless of what party we're in," she said when asked about her fellow New Yorker's comment at a Capitol Hill news conference.

Giuliani responded:

Giuliani stood by his comments Wednesday, saying Democrats don't understand the threat posed by terrorists.
"They do not seem to get the fact that there are people, terrorists in this world, really dangerous people that want to come here and kill us," Giuliani said on "The Sean Hannity Show," according to a transcript distributed by his campaign. "They want to take us back to not being as alert which to me will just extend this war much, much longer."

My grandfather told me once that the truth only hurts when it should, and we are seeing very clear proof of that truism here. The Congressional Liberaliars are doing everything in their power to undermine our troops and to sabatoge the war effort. They want America to lose because they believe that we the people will reward the liberaliars with more power of a GOP Commander-In-Chief loses this war. America's liberaliars don't give two hoots about our troops or about national security, because they are in denial about the threat posed to the world by Islamofascism. They are clueless.

Will the Democrat treason strategy work? There is already evidence that it will not. Look at

This is a losing strategy for the liberaliars---one more fact they are in denial about.

Setting a timetable for withdrawl is not waiving a white flag, or surrendering, or cut-and-run, or any of the other bizarre characterizations the pro-war folks have used to try to quash discusion of an exit plan.

There needs to be an exit plan sometime. We certainly shouldn't stay in Iraq forever.

We talk about offense and defence. If "defence" is resistance against attack/protection, and "offense" is attacking/assaulting, then the right side to be on is defence. Sometime defence means we have to attack militarily,and strategicaly apply violence to acheive an objective. But as a country, our default position should be one of defense; as in defending our nation.

Serious discussion gets lost in the symantics of words, and political polerization, and emotively-charged accusations, such a ridiculous calls of "treason." We all have ideas and oppinions on the war and it is a shame that as a country we cannot rise above political motivations to try to solve this problem.

You have started using the term "liberliars" which seems to suggest that all liberal-leaning thinkers are liars. Not sure if that is what you mean or not. If so, then you to are guilty of trying to quash serious discusion of
this conflict, by discrediting any ideas from left-thinkers, and omitting anything left-thinkers may have to contribute. So I hope that is not how you see it Hondo. We need to come together as Americans, both left and right, and figure out how to solve this thing. Because it's not working right now.
