Head in the Sand Syndrome

The Democrats have to completely destroy Iraq before the 2008 elections.

It will help their election effort and in the wake of a withdrawal they can blame the fall of the Iraqi government on a Republican president.

Otherwise, if we keep our troops in Iraq and the Iraqi government continues to grow stronger, their window of opportunity will close. Think about it. If they win the 2008 election, a president from the Democratic Party will face intensive pressure from his or her constituents to immediately withdraw from Iraq. Such a president will be forced to comply and pay dearly for it.

With control over Congress and the presidency - the Baathist triumph which would result from the withdrawal that they propose will be rightfully blamed on the Democratic Party. From their point of view they cant take any chances and must force a withdrawal during the Bush Administration.


The Democrats dont have a real plan for Iraq because they only want to destroy the Iraqi government. Beyond that they have no concrete plan for the future. That is why they spend as little time as possible speaking about a post-U.S. Iraq. With the fall of Iraq they would have already gotten what they wanted and would have to wait and see where the pieces fall in order to formulate future strategy.

Ask your Democratic Party representative what his or her plan is for Iraq after a withdrawal.

Dont be fooled, the Democrats are absolutely desperate...

"loyal opposition"?
Most of them should be tried under US Code Title 18 > Part I > Chapter 115 --TREASON, SEDITION, AND SUBVERSIVE ACTIVITIES.
Bipartisan politics no longer exists in America. The Democratic Party is the party of Clintonista and Pelosism. Marx and Engel would feel right at home.

Ha haa haaaa!!!

At this rate treason will be defined as being against the Democratic Party.

All the litigation they are instigating to seize power is paying off. Anyone who opposes them will find themselves under "investigation".

FJ, I loved your post on the subject. I would link it but you delete your posts so quickly I will just summarize instead...

"The Democrats now claim that there aren't enough lawyers in all of Washington DC to handle the investigations of George W. Bush that are forthcoming. Not enough lawyers in DC. Get it? Lawyers? DC? Government? Never mind..."

Bang on as usual. It's a non-serious power play, where the Republicans will be smacked about no matter what they do. The cynical cowardice would be hilarious if it didn't jeopardize so many lives.

Of course it's all about the politics--especially the 2008 election!

From The Truth Project:

At some point our collective heads will come up out of the sand, probably by the force of an explosion; and we'll stand, mouths agape like so many fish out of water, trying to comprehend a situation we've done our best to ignore.

Gotta love Rogue's comment!

Cool! Another Head in the Sand moment. The dismissal of the true root causes of terrorism signifies a serious lack of critical thinking in those who blame the West.

Such ignorance is exactly what terrorists need to accomplish their sick goals.

But wouldn't this picture be more appropriate addressing Bush having his head in the sand, or up his ass? I mean hes the one who is blind and clueless.

Freedomnow said...

It is almost impossible to be any more clueless than the Democratic Party's stance on the Iraq war.

Take Murtha’s Wizard of Oz-like “Over the Horizon Strategy”.

I will grant that South Korea was only one of many countries that he envisions US troops evacuating Iraq would go to. Since he viewed these troops as a “rapid response force”, along the lines of our forces in Djibouti, he would naturally foresee that these troops would have to be closer to the front lines. It was just funny that he chose to use South Korea as an example for obvious reasons.

So under Murtha’s strategy US troops abandon Iraq in the face of a terrorist insurgency.

First off, there will be a huge power vacuum that he has barely even addressed. Basically, he has no concrete plan for the obvious result of this withdrawal so our enemies will make substantial gains.

Second off, success breeds more success. The Jihadis will be thrilled to have kicked the U.S. out of Iraq. They will seek to replicate this success elsewhere. Soon secure bases in the Gulf States will come under intense attack. Eventually, Middle Eastern countries that host U.S. troops will find themselves under intense pressure from terrorism and public opinion to get rid of those troops.

We will lose these bases and get kicked out of the Middle East. So much for Murtha’s rapid response force. They will be too far away to be effective.

Third off, any rapid deployment force sent to Iraq will become indispensable while they are there. There would be widespread instability in the Sunni triangle from the massive power vacuum created by the withdrawal. U.S. troops would be more effective if they were there for a long term. As soon as they leave after their temporary mission is done, another power vacuum is created…

Fourth off, you would think that Murtha learned from Vietnam. When the North Vietnam finally committed to a full offensive a year after the U.S. withdrew from the South they easily destroyed Saigon’s demoralized troops. The South felt abandoned by the U.S. and there was no mistaking that conclusion when Congress cut off funds to them. They fell like a house of cards. The same COULD happen in Iraq.

What makes people think that if the U.S. withdraws from Iraq there would be peace? The Iraqis kill each other more than they kill Americans. Even the insurgents fight each other, not to mention intentionally target innocent civilians.

Appeasement only works against rational foes. This is truly head in the sand dementia.
