Bush’s illegal and immoral veto of a bill that would finally end his illegal and immoral war sends a dangerous message to our troops that not only is the war winnable, but that their congressional leaders are a bunch of limp-wristed surrender monkeys as well. Such disrespect for the Legislative Branch of government is par for the Shrub’s fascist course, but in a time of war (even an illegal and immoral one) it is vitally important for the leaders of this country to show a unified front. Bush’s abuse of his illgotten veto powers may raise doubts in the minds of our GI's that Harry and Nancy are actually calling the shots here. Indeed, many who took a solemn oath to defend our Constitution nevertheless remain in Iraq, in total defiance of a Congressional order to retreat with their tails tucked between their legs. To maintain any level of discipline in our armed forces, such mutinous individuals must be made examples of.
The troops wouldn’t listen to Osama. They totally ignored Saddam. Mamood Aboomijinad was just pissing in the wind. So I don’t hold out much hope that they’ll listen to Iron Man Harry Reid’s demands that they remove their infidel backsides from the Muslim holy land. But perhaps the threat of a court martial will put the fear of Democrats into those who continue to defy the wishes of the American People and fight on in Iraq as if the war hasn’t already been lost.
