Quote, unquote

... [Lieberman] doesn't get it. The fact is that we were attacked on 9/11 by Al Qaeda and its affiliates and its sympathizers, not by Saddam Hussein. And unfortunately Senator Lieberman has supported the Bush Administration’s disastrous strategic approach of getting us stuck in Iraq instead of focusing on those who attacked us. I mean, look at the places that have been attacked: India, Morocco, Turkey, Afghanistan, Indonesia, Somalia, Spain, Great Britain. What does this have to do with Iraq? And Senator Lieberman is stuck on that point...

More Feingold ignorance on display.

A democratic Iraq working to fight terrorism is substantially better than the dictatorship Saddam Hussein supporting global terrorism.

This is not a time for ruby-slippers and dreamy-deadlines for a pull-out. The honest question is; where is the next front?

We used to pretend that the Middle East 'troubles' could be negotiated and calmed by diplomacy. Those days really are over.

The war is global and real. More than that it is for peace.

The trouble with Feingold is that he is more interested in winning a presidential election then he is in winning this war on Islamofascists.

There is no place in this global war for Neville Feingold

If we hadn't gone into Iraq first, we would have been there sooner or later. They shared one thing with their bitter enemy Iran and so many of their neighbors: the destruction of the west.

For long-term security, I am glad Russ is on the stage. He is the embodiment of the stark difference between the fantasies of the peace-movement and the reality of the dangerous world.

We have a dishonest president who lies to us repeatedly. WMD's. Yellow Cake. Mushroom clouds. Lied into war with the wrong country, while osama and his boys, even after 5 years, are free. Of course, bush needs his boogeymen. Fear is what he relies on, what he feeds off of in his foolishness - and how he got re-elected.
For real long-term security, we need to exit the entire middle east, and knock off the "spreading of democracy" to sovereign countries who despise our occupation of their lands.
There is no place in today's world for those who blindly back the neocon mission of world domination, the flow of oil. Leaders who have the ability to think critically, to think long range, are what we need. That most assuredly leaves out the present occupants of OUR White House. Quite simply, we do not trust these war enablers any more - if we ever did.

You can run and hide and continue deluding yourself.

Have at it.

Thankfully, there are plenty who can take the place of the weak. They will help us win in the end.

Who knows, maybe even you and Christoff will wake up and figure this out one day soon.

Chuckle, chuckle...

And Badgervan -- the idea that we need to stop "spreading democracy" to "soverign countries" is beyond hiilarity.

Yup... go Russ go.... these are your people. A very small percentage of the masses, but they are yours buddy.

I spent four years active, two reserve, in the Navy, 1968-72. I am unwilling to lose one speck of my freedom, my liberties as an American due to the politically overt manipulation of fear for votes.
I have 60% of America on my side, you have the die hard 30% who believe the decider can do no wrong on yours. I'd say that the "small percentage" tips your way, or can you prove these numbers wrong?
You want to call me weak, I'll meet you anywhere and anytime. We'll see who is weak.
Xout, whoever you are, your service to our country consists of?

P.S. Sitting at a keyboard doesn't count.

You are weak. You don't care about liberty, you don't care about our nations security and you don't really care about freedom.

Thanks for your service, but you learned nothing from it.

I am willing to die to defend your cut-and-run views. I would have expected that from a dedicated serviceman who took the oath, but you are a vetran who is abdiacting that role - I would do it for you despite my complete disagreement with your dim-witted views.

As for your comments on the 60% - you are flat out wrong, misguided and unable to read a poll.

I am here for you buddy - cut and run like scared girl, and I will fend off the bad guys for you. What a waste of miliatary training you are.

That's it. After reading this string of comments, I am now able to unmask the identity of Xout.

He is Major Frank Burns from MASH 4077. And he's obviously been spending a lot of time with that crazy Captain from "military intelligence."

Whatta weinie!

Life truly does imitate art.

Xout -- please call me weak and a coward. Please, please.

Go ahead Sherman - back Feingold be a pussy and a coward and I will continue to have unwanted sex with Major Houlihan.

Stupid, unplanned decisions do not equal strength.
We need leaders who are both tough and smart - not wienies that only talk tough.
Still waiting for the decider to give us his whereabouts and actions that last year of his military "service". And the National Guard in those days was made up of kids whose parents had pull - slacker's duty, we called it. Your service to your country, xout? Haven't seen a reply yet. Typical rethug - all carrot; no stick.

I am willing to serve and the age, lucky for me has gone up.

I am willing to protect you and may very well end up doing so.

And here I was thinking that xout was charlie sykes or jennifer mcbride. You're too young for charlie.
I'll sleep much better now, knowing that I'm so well protected.

Good luck to Xout, who will likely not join the service.
But if he does, he better make sure he passes the psychological profiling.
We don't need him in Iraq raping and murdering to prove his point, unless he joins a vigilante contractor, so he can avoid such scrutiny.
Feingold is a far better legislator than anything the GOP has spewed forth.
I guess corrupt campaign financing reform, written by Russ, has little to do with the reality Xout belives in.

Xout = coward.

Those who serve, but fail to under stand why the serve puzzle me.

Was it that they were drafted, rather than volunteered for their service (like I did)?

Though I respect their right to have an opinion, no matter how wrong, I must remind them that their brief personal service was only a small part of the service that has given us the freedom we enjoy.

Sen, Feingold is all wet in his ideas that we could simply pull out.

The battle would follow the trail of shame his yellow-belly would have us blaze back to our own shores.

Maybe he hopes the clowns at Turtle Bay (Kofi and his band of thieves) will protect us?

It is also worth pointing out that in a war, it has not been since the Civil War (when the Democrats sided with the southern Slave Owners by the way) that a major party has done everything within its power to undermine the troops that protect us.

Gieven the gift of freedom, the apologists like Ol' Russ sure do know how to look that 'gift horse in the mouth'!

Gore/Feingold in '08! Integrity and honesty back in government! Yeah!
And to StevieS: I enlisted in '68, trained in Coronado with the Seals, and spent my remaining service in Naval Intelligence, the last year working at NSA, Ft. Meade, MD.
Do not ever claim that democrats are somehow less patriotic than repubs. And for anyone to still link the democratic party of the Civil War era to today's dem party is disingenuous ( look it up in the dictionary, SteveS ). The Republican Party of Lincoln morphed into today's Democratic Party - a complete reversal. Anyone who has studied basic American history knows this. Johnson's Great Society legislation in the 60's cemented the deal.
Please deliver facts, not unsubstantiated rants, when you post, SteveS.
