Republicans Prepare for Failure in Iraq. Now they just need somebody to Blame.
About 1,000 Bush supporters -- more than the population of Crawford -- poured into the area for their rally. Many of them arrived in a caravan from California bearing the message: "You Don't Speak For Me, Cindy!" The "liberal" media has failed to point out that this Caravan was organized by a Republican PR firm. See my earlier story on "Move America Forward."
The founder of Move America Forward, Howard Kaloogian, accused Cindy Sheehan, the sponsor of the anti-war protest, of encouraging the very insurgency in Iraq that killed her son. (Follow the Logic, Cindy Sheehan is responsible for her own son's death? Howard Kaloogian is a monster.)
"The terrorists that are watching Cindy Sheehan's protest believe that this is something that might topple the current administration." Kaloogian said. "And I have a question that I want the media to begin asking Cindy Sheehan: How many more American soldiers are going to die because you are giving hope and encouragement to our enemies?"
One pro-Bush demonstrator was arrested on a misdemeanor charge of interfering with the duties of a police officer.
This is the same strategy used by the right to justify the loss of the war in Vietnam. Failure was not because of the President, Congress, or the Government, failure was caused by people speaking out against the war. In turn the people speaking out against the war began to blame the soldiers who carried out the Governments Orders. This will begin to happen again unless we allow for a truely volunteer army. I say anyone who is an American Soldier fighting in Iraq can choose to leave the War the day the President announces "Mission Accomplished."
Howard Kaloogian and the 1,000 other morons who joined this so-called march should pick up a rifle and take the place of those troops who feel they've done enough. It's time to join up, or shut up.
