Dennis Hastert has it all wrong, that fucker. He had this to say about Murtha's call for withdrawal of troops from Iraq:

"I am saddened by the comments made today by Rep. Murtha. It is clear that as Nancy Pelosi's top lieutenant on armed services, Rep. Murtha and Democratic leaders have adopted a policy of cut and run. They would prefer that the United States surrender to the terrorists who would harm innocent Americans. To add insult to injury, this is done while the President is on foreign soil."
Surrender? The United States cut and run? Fuck you, Hastert! We won the fucking Iraq war! Remember May 1, 2003? Mission Accomplished!

What I want to know is why the Republicans are so down on the United States, acting as though we can't defeat a pissant country like Iraq. They're hurting the morale of our troops with that kind of talk--saying that the "terrorists" aren't yet contained and that we haven't won yet. They proudly say, "we don't want an 'exit' strategy, we want a 'victory' strategy" (i.e., Bill Frist). We won already, you jackasses--there's no need for a strategy.

As Murtha plainly explained in his statement today:

"Our military has been fighting a war in Iraq for over two and a half years. Our military has accomplished its mission and done its duty. Our military captured Saddam Hussein, and captured or killed his closest associates. "
Hey Republicans--we stuck a boot up Iraq's ass, in the colorful parlance of one your favorite "artists." We fucking mowed 'em down, we're running the entire country, their leader is about to be tried--we won, you sickos! Let the soldiers come home!

The Real Reason We're Still In Iraq

All sarcasm aside, though, it is patently ridiculous to equate the idea of withdrawal with surrender. As Murtha pointed out, we did what we came to do so let's get the fuck out. Of course, as I and so many others have said since before the war, we never should've gone to war with Iraq in the first goddamn place.

The real reason we're still in Iraq is simple. It's political leverage for the Republicans (and some Dim-ocrats). Or more precisely, leverage for what Justin Raimondo accurately and disparagingly calls "the War Party."

Let's face it, this immoral, hideous mistake of a war is the only reason there weren't riots in the streets when Bush (and/or Bush cronies at Diebold and ES&S) stole Ohio from Kerry. Sitting presidents don't lose when there are wars on. Period. It's never happened. The flag waves and the eagle soars...

But of course, with Bush now in a second term, the Corporate-crats and the Anti-Peace party need to keep a diversion going whereby they can continue their stated goal of undoing all the progressive improvements of the 20th century. So a war that whips up undue patriotic fervor (undue because the Iraq war is unjust, we were lied into it, we're not even picking on someone our own size) is just what the doctor ordered.

That's why the Republicans continue to insult the work the troops have done. Even though it's clear we have won the Iraq war, they keep insisting that acknowleding our achievements and moving on to bigger and better things (like peace and saving money rather than blowing a couple billion a month) is chickenshit. When the Republicans who lied us into this war say that our clear victory in Iraq is not good enough and that more Americans have to stay there and die so that the Corporatists can complete their takeover of society and the dismantling of our government--that is fucking PURE EVIL.

As most who attended the rally know, I was there. After the dust had cleared created by some moonbat among the bootmurtha crowd who called in a fake police report that a fight had broken out, Larry Bailey came out to speak with me.

I complimented him from the bottom of my heart for the contributions he has made to our country's national security while he was serving active duty in the US Navy.

He made it clear my request to speak would not happen. He then proceeded to suggest he has no memory of the email he wrote me on 8/20/2006 2:59:30 P.M. Eastern Standard Time stating that our current Commander in Chief made stupid mistakes in Iraq.

Larry then proceeded to illustrate stupid mistakes made in passed wars. After he mentioned 3 or 4 examples I interjected that there is a difference between those wars and this one.

In the past it took weeks, months, sometimes years for mistakes to be discovered and reported. Today is the information age where mistakes are reported within hours of their occurrence. I reminded him this war was still going on. I also reminded him of the glaring mistakes he had acknowledged President Bush had made in Iraq, and our respective use of the Internet to support our respective views and that is where our conversation ended.

I waited outside the Arena with a Johnstown police officer who had stayed behind after the bootmurtha hysterics caused 3 squad cars and a sergeant to arrive with sirens blaring. I was debating Steeler football with him when a motorcycle officer stopped by, who had been inside. When I asked how many were inside he said, "not many at all" When I asked "500?", he responded, "na ... well maybe 500, at most."

At the end of the event when Larry Bailey came out for a photo op next to the sign on the sidewalk outside the War Memorial Arena. I handed Larry the speech I had waited to deliver. He put it in his outside left coat pocket.

This is my speech Larry Bailey has in his coat pocket ... the words he was not man enough to let me say:

"Please join me in Prayer.

Heavily father we pray today for you to continue to protect the men and women of the armed forces of the United States and other countries who are in harms way in Iraq, Afghanistan, and other countries throughout the world. We thank them and their families for their sacrifices.

We pray for the souls of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice in all wars. We pray for strength and courage for the POWs and MIAs and those held hostage.

We pray for protection and safety of relief workers helping those in need.

We pray for the protection of children and innocent civilians. Lord we especially pray for our nation and our leaders."

Below you will find the press release that went out on October 29th of this year.

"American troops could be home now, except for critical mistakes made by our current Commander in Chief," charges Cliff Hancuff, Director of The World of Journalism Is Flat, Too.

"Media and right-wing bloggers are ignoring this fact. For weeks I have been challenging political activists and journalists to act with a minimum of ethical standards," continued Hancuff.

"I became involved when the Sun-Sentinel in Florida reported that Rep. John Murtha (D-Pa.) said the U.S. poses the top threat to world peace. I watched in dismay as the media and bloggers worldwide reported on this misquote."

"My involvement continued when I discovered Diana Irey, John Murtha's political opponent, had attacked Murtha using a fictional quote attributed to Abraham Lincoln."

"Larry Bailey of is continuing his three year blind support of our current Commander in Chief's incompetence in war. President Bush declared war in Iraq without the 4th Infantry, our most lethal, modern, and deployable heavy division in the world," added Hancuff.

This mistake lead to the atrocity of Al Qaqaa. Iraqi insurgents stole hundreds of tons of high explosives to be used as weaponry.

"These are the explosives being used by Iraqi insurgents and al Qaeda to perpetuate the war in Iraq."

"I am distressed that the same issues ignored by Swift Boat Veterans for Truth in 2004 are being ignored again in 2006," said Hancuff adding, "Americans, American soldiers, and their families deserve better."

"Without these critical mistakes made by our current Commander in Chief, our American troops would be home with their loved ones, with honor, right now."

On October 1, 2006 Hancuff be at the Cambria County War Memorial Arena located in Johnstown Pennsylvania for Larry Bailey's Swiftboating of John Murtha rally. It is there Hancuff will continue his wait for Mr. Bailey to recall the values of honor and integrity taught him by our US Navy.
