Yemen: Does Al Qaeda Want Us To Attack?

I know we cannot stand by while terrorists plot attacks against America! But I hope we use our advanced technology, that is as long as our corporations don’t sell it to the enemies of America! Dick Cheney and his fellow travelers in the Republican Party have stopped us from winning the war on terror due to their diversion, the vast Republican Social Engineering Experiment in Iraq! Instead we should have cut off the leadership of Al Qaeda before they escaped to Pakistan! Now they have had time to regroup. I wish the Democrats would remind Americans about the failure of Bush and Cheney on a daily basis. Now we have inherited one more problem from the Bush Administration.

Trial In NYC – Threat To America Or Threat To Dick Cheney?

After hearing all the right wing whining that America is to weak to place the 9-11 terrorists on trial in New York City I have to wonder is it perhaps that they fear Dick Cheney might be called as a witness and if he were not to comply it could jeopardize the conviction of these terrorists? Dick Cheney seems to do a dance when he talks about national security issues. (See video below).

I have the habit of viewing things from a psychological perspective! I believe Cheney’s attacking of President Obama has the “function” or perhaps the “deliberate purpose” preventing his being called to Congressional hearings. If he were prosecuted then his followers could hold up their hands at the Democrats saying he was being persecuted for attacking Obama.

If the 9-11 terrorists are tried in an American civilian court they could present their prior treatment in Gitmo as a violation of the Geneva Convention and to show high level culpability of the US Government, who better to call as a witness than Dick Cheney!

Nidal Hassan: How Both Conservatives And Liberals Failed Our Troops

This Social Democrat Liberal blogger is willing to follow the truth wherever it may lead. I ask my fellow progressives to divest themselves of knee jerk reactions. I urge this as an American first and as a Social Democrat second. I have watched several Liberal commentators lament that Nidal Hassan was sending e-mails to a known Islamic Radical Cleric yet Dr. Hassan was still retained in the military. Please read and follow both the point and counter points and my synthesis at the end.

Democrats can point out that Nidal Hassan had his e-mail monitored but no actions where taken against him. However we can thank the Republicans that we can indeed monitor e-mails! The fact that Democrats condemn the lack of acting on that monitoring is hypocritical! If we had our way there would have been no monitoring to begin with!

Guantanamo, Torture, Terrorism And The Jungian Shadow

Guantanamo, Torture,
Terrorism And The Jungian
Shadow Well finally it
seems that some in our
government are not going
to play word games!
Military Judge Susan
Crawford prevented the
prosecution of one terrorist
because he was tortured,
though not in his case with
water boarding. Also the
new incoming Attorney
General, Eric Holder has
stated before Congress
that “Water boarding is
torture indeed”! Hey does
anyone remember the self
righteous Republicans
ranting on Bill Clinton
because he used word
games to not take
responsibility for his having
sex with Monica Lewinsky?
True Bill Clinton was wrong.
But I have noticed
something about
Presidents who screw up.
They either screw around

Barrack Obama Right Again!

Barrack Obama Right
Again! Well it seems U.S.
officials want our troops to
pursue terrorists across
the border into their safe
haven in Pakistan! I find it
amazing that Fox News
gives provides this
information without
crediting Senator Obama
for saying this long ago!
Instead of this wild eyed
neo-con Republican
EXPERIMENT in Iraq that
was supposed to be self
funded by Iraqi Oil
revenue, our nation has
wasted time and lives while
Al Qaeda formulates new
attacks against our
homeland! This reminds me
of the story of the police
who came to the aid of a
motorist on a deserted
road late at night. The
motorist lost his key.

Democrats Letting Republicans Get Away With Iraq

Democrats Letting
Republicans Get Away With
Iraq I was one of those
who were for the Iraqi War
with the “Mission” that our
Congress in deliberation
set as the goal. We won
the war and our President,
who never finished his own
National Guard obligation,
then declared “Mission
Accomplished”! Now our
President who
doesn’t want to
follow the goals that
Congress committed our
troops to accomplish under
“a strict constructionalist”
interpretation of our
Constitution wants to
commit, along with his
fellow traveler John
McCain, to a “One Hundred
Year” War! These wild
eyed Republicans want to
commit our nation to a vast
Social Engineering
Experiment while the sales
of Afghan opium
production SURGE

Pro-Conservative News Media Biases against Obama

Pro-Conservative News
Media Biases against
Obama I am sick and tired
of the whining effete snobs
of the Republican Party
who attack Barrack Obama
for being one of the few
who wants to win the War
on Terror! John McCain
and his fellow travelers in
the Republican Party
attacked Barrack Obama
calling him “inexperienced”
when Obama stated we
cannot allow Al Qaeda to
grow uncontested in their
mountain redoubts on the
border. Barrack Obama
stated that if Pakistan
would not act he would!
Now it seems the Bush
Administration is coming
around to Obama’s
inexperienced ideas! (See
the Video below) Yet the
news media allow McCain
to make stupid charges
against Barrack Obama
that he would

Bush’s Iraq War Is Destroying America’s Military Deterrence

Bush’s Iraq War Is
America’s Military
Deterrence Sure you have
heard it said that we must
stay in Iraq to preserve
our defense of our
homeland. Many realize
that our current military is
being stretched to its limit.
But that is not the only
reason that George Bush
and his fellow traveler John
McCain are destroying our
military deterrence! When
your potential enemy
stares you in the face and
there is a line in the sand
our enemies will evaluate
the cost to themselves of
crossing that line! Many PC
Liberals AND Neo-Con
Republicans don’t
seem to understand this
second way George Bush is
undermining military
deterrence that I am going
to list
