Please Tell Me I'm Delirious
I'm hoping I'm hallucinating. (Update: Pedro says I'm not. That's it - I'm going back under the covers.) Tell me the new Democratic national security plan doesn't declare war on a number of countries? We'll take it from Mr. Howdy-Doody looking Nimrod himself, Marion Berry's official web document giving the details:
Destroy Terrorist NetworksLet's see. I believe that commits us to invade large hunks of the former Soviet Union (now several different countries), establish control over the entire Korean Peninsula, knock off Iran, and establish a hegemonic control over Pakistan. Oh, yes. Nigeria. I'm sure I've missed a few. But that's just to "seize all loose nuclear materials by 2010". Destroying the al Qaeda terrorist network would require establishing full control over the financial networks of over a dozen Muslim states. Somehow I don't think that doubling the size of our Special Forces is adequate. Nor is there any explanation of how to pay for this. See my prior post on the budget here. Scroll halfway down and look at the historical shift between military spending and entitlement spending. Something's got to give.
* Eliminate Osama Bin Laden, destroy the al Qaeda terrorist network, and end the threat posed by the Taliban
* Double the size of our Special Forces and increase investment in intelligence
* Seize all loose nuclear materials by 2010 that terrorists could use to build nuclear weapons or "dirty bombs"
As Nancy says, "We can better do!" than to vote for this. Is the national Demagogic leadership permanently high? And more to the point, what is floating their boats? Is it crack? A carefully balanced mixture of Paxil and meth? The country needs to know.
I feel sad for the Democrats. If they have a clue, they would know that we have reached the maximum number of Special Forces we can have.
I don't feel sad for the Democrats. I feel terror for the military forces when I read something like this. The Dem leadership that could come up with something like this doesn't know anything about the military and doesn't have any respect for the military. I don't want to think about what would happen if we handed control over the military to these idiots.
I'm really upset.
