Victory In Iraq!

aka, Venting...

An email I sent to Mark Davis. He's replied in the past and has said that I'm not making sense. Like when I argued before the war, that Iraq didn't have WMDs and explained the UN position to him. Mark was in love with the WMD idea then and promoted every neocon fantasy idea that was coming down the pike. He was hot for the war, he was panting for it, yet told us it was a serious matter and we shouldn't go into war lightly.

So we took out Saddam because he killed his own people. Well we're not killing our own people, we're killing his people, and we're better at than he was.

He tortured his people. But not enough I guess. We torture better.

Saddam kept the electricity and water running all during the nine years of sanctions and US bombing. We fixed that.

Saddam kept the violence under control, and we fixed that.

We were convinced that the Iraqis didn't want him as their leader, yet his people were armed to the teeth with a variety of ordnance, including at least one fully automatic weapon in every home. If they wanted him out, why was he stepping out onto balconies in front of armed crowds?

The neocon fantasies were wet and creamy, but they dried up in the sands of the Middle East. And these guys have to blame someone when they screw up and get people killed in order to fulfill their own dreams of glory.

I caught a bit of your show today. It was an interesting take on the 'Blame the People' strategy that's gaining in popularity. Singling out bloggers as some powerful force in today's media is becoming a tried and true tactic.

I was surprised that you were jumping on the neo-con bloggers though. Isn't that a bit of an 'Eat Your Own Tactic'? Was it designed to give you some credibility, by admitting that its not just liberal bloggers, that should shut and listen to what their betters are saying?

By the way, your war is going really great. The glory is really impressive. Bush is very proud of the numbers and tells us so.

I love this quote from him, in a recent interview.
"The load of the war is not heavy. Its a joyful, not a painful experience, because I know that millions of people are praying for me." - George Bush

You guys are doing a great job with the war. I want to apologize on behalf of the American people for screwing it all up for the White House, Both Houses of Congress, the Troops, The Armed Forces, The Media, You Mark Davis, Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, Perle, Wolfowitz, Bremer, Negroponte, etc... On behalf of the American people I can say that we are very sorry for mucking up Iraq and not letting you win the war the way you wanted to. We tied your hands and as Tom Delay tells us, took over the job of commander and Chief and wouldn't let Bush sit in the big chair. If only Bush were allowed to be our President, and had gotten his way, even once, Iraq would be roses right now.

Sorry we let you down.

Who's Mark Davis?

He's a local neo-con talk show host that has gone into national syndication.

His program starts weekdays at 9:00am CST at

He covers a lot of topics, so he's not quite so insipid as Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh, but when it comes to politics, he's definitely a chickenhawk.

Before the war fever picked up, I used to listen to him on a regular basis. It became harder to keep the radio tuned to him in 2003, when he started repeating almost every lie told, in the ramp up of support for the war.

He talks of being reasonable and rational, and the honor in war, but doesn't fact check himself. If the war were honorable, why did so many lies have to be told, to get it going?
