It's About Winning





“What we hate is not casualties but losing.”

Michael Ledeen, advisor to Karl Rove.

The voice of the neocons speaks loudly and clearly. Keep sending your kids to die until the neocons feel like they (not America) have won. It is only with a win that the psychopaths who run this administration can vindicate their ill-fated decision to attack Iraq.

Mr. Ledeen's sentiment perhaps explains why the Army recently did an about face on its policy of requiring enlistees to hold a high school diploma or GED. On Tuesday, the Army announced the creation of a program called Army Educations Plus whereby a high school dropout can attend Army-paid-for GED prep classes and take the GED exam free of charge in exchange for enlisting in a branch of the armed forces. http://www.armytimes.com/story.php?f=1-292925-1115623.php. Why not include high school dropouts in the bloodbath? The more the merrier.

Compassionate Conservatism and the Culture Of Life helping America once again.

When I think of an insurgent I think of hit and run, blind sided, quick attacks, pretty much what your quote is of Mr. Ledeen. Is this what an "intellectual insurgent" does, post or print quotes with no context of their original meaning. This is very disappointing, I expect more from you!

I'm sure what Mr. Ledeen actually means is that the American people will accept casualties as long as their is a goal to win and a doable exit strategy. Are you sure you're not a liberl? This is straight from the sleazy liberal journalism playbook

Christopher,

I am happy to have an intelligent discussion, so spare me the insults as if calling me a liberal is a grand insult in the first place.

That is nice of you to come to Mr. Ledeen's defense, but if there is some greater context for this quote, please provide the link for it. Otherwise, it stands on its merits for any reader to interpret.

The Republican positions on this war have become so ridiculous so as not to even justify as response as far as I'm concerned.

I was watching "America's Black Forum" and they had some greasy-faced house negro sittin' up there. He was Chair of the Senate Republican Conference, I believe. Arps probably knows who I'm talking about. He was STILL arguing about democracy and how long it took America to write a Constitution. I've long since learned to argue with people like that. It's not worth the time.

bob,

said: "greasy-faced house negro"

Do you realize how callous and judgemental that phrase sounds?

You don't know that person you are describing, so "putting him in a philosophical box" deserves a retraction and an appology.

IMHO.

FAR.

I should have said, "such a demeaning and racial philosophical box"

I happen to think that "black people" who happen to agree with Republicans are valiant becasue it is a much easier task to agree with Sharpton, J. Jackson and others who only want "sheep."

Speaking out against those in your race who happen to go along with the flow of Democratic Dependance, is something to be admired, not given demeaning labels.


FAR.

FAR,

I'm not against all black Republicans, but I am against paid clowns who spout ridiculous Republican talking points, no matter how insane. Like I said, I don't argue about the war in Iraq because it's not worth it.

As for my use of the term "negro," it's a term I use for black Republicans with no spine or thoughts of their own.

FYI, I despise Jesse and Al--and most of the Democrats.
