Vietnam Rhetoric Assumes Liberals Are Predicated To Repeating History

Lee P. Butler   November 28, 2005

During a speaking engagement in Dubai, the capital of United Arab Emirates, former United States president Bill Clinton told a group of Arab students, “Saddam is gone. It’s a good thing, but I don’t agree with what was done.”

The ‘what was done’ he was referring to is the same thing he also called a ‘big mistake’, which was the liberation of Iraq through the military action called Operation Iraqi Freedom. It was just another in a long line of attacks concerning the War on Terror in Iraq by American liberals who could care less about the repercussions of their rhetoric as it pertains to the safety of our troops.

Clinton’s former advisor, Dick Morris, lambasted the former president for his actions. Morris said he was ‘furious’ at Clinton, ‘for going to Dubai, a couple of hundred miles from where our troops are... darn near the middle war zone, saying that they’re dying for a huge mistake.”

Clinton followed through on his usual method of ‘double-talk’ he perfected while president and upon returning to the United States spoke positively about the situation in Iraq by praising the recent election where Iraqis approved a constitution.

He then added fuel to the terrorist fire in Iraq by commenting that the December 15th election would be a ‘test’ for success based on insurgent terrorist supported Sunni participation or lack thereof.

One week after those statements, Iraqi government officials stated that ‘outlaw insurgents’ wearing Iraqi military uniforms invaded the home of senior Sunni Batta tribe leader Khadim Sarhid al-Hemaiyem and brother of a parliamentary candidate for the December election. The terrorists killed the Sunni leader, his three sons, and son-in-law.

Several groups of Sunni insurgent terrorists have demanded that Sunnis should boycott the election and have threatened the lives of any Sunni participation in the election. Are the words of American liberals having an effect on the events taking place in Iraq?

In America, liberals and their loudspeakers of media elitists continue the drum beat that the liberation of Iraqis was based on lies... that the operation was illegal... that we are occupiers, torturers, and murderers... and that our military presence is the cause of the terrorists acts in Iraq that has transformed the sand-covered country into the jungle laden hell that was Vietnam.

In every case, terrorists... the focus of our military action in the War on Terror... seem to be incorporating American liberal rhetoric into their own plans-of-action.

One case-in-point came from senior Democrat Marine hero and Vietnam veteran Jack Murtha. He recently said, “The U.S. cannot accomplish anything further in Iraq militarily. It’s time to bring the troops home.”

The Democrat who has been labeled ‘hawkish’ by the liberal media because he originally supported both Gulf wars... which in the first Gulf war would make Al Gore a ‘hawk’... also added that, “They [the Sunni insurgent terrorists] are united against U.S. forces, and we have become a catalyst for violence. The war in Iraq is not going as advertised.”

Nor has any war, but that should go without saying. Obviously not.

Those same sentiments are the centerpiece of Sunni insurgent terrorist rhetoric as they daily bomb and kill innocent Iraqis trying to live peacefully. Over 160 Iraqis have been killed by these murderous Neanderthals during the past week, including a recent bombing at a hospital where our troops were handing out candy to children. Three women and two children were slaughtered in the attack.

One Iraqi was quoted, “These attacks are genocide against the Iraqi people. They have nothing to do with resistance,” said 28-year-old painter Abdel-Ilah Nijm. The message of the Sunni terrorists is the same as liberals in America.

“We are tired of the slogans that call for the departure of the British and the Americans,” Prime Minister Ibrahim al-Jaarfari said, referring to the rhetoric of the Sunni insurgent terrorists.

Mirroring the rhetoric from liberal Democrats, a recent Associated Press report from Iraq pointed out that the Sunni minority desperately wanted American troops out of Iraq. Abdul-Salam said he wanted our troops to leave now because we, ‘are behind the troubles of this country [Iraq]’.

Yet, the overwhelming majority of Iraqis; the Shiites and Kurds, want our troops to remain. “An immediate and surprising withdrawal would create a crisis and is unacceptable because it would create gaps,” Abdul-Karim al-Inazi, who is in charge of national security said. “It would shake the security of the entire region - not only in Iraq.”

That is not the picture painted by liberal Democrats and their media elitist counterparts here in America. The American public is inundated by media reports to the contrary and they have even picked up the liberal talking point that Iraq is now Vietnam.

The sad part is... so has the terrorists.

In a recent letter that was confiscated between al Qaeda terrorist leaders Ayman al-Zawahiri and Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, Zawahiri wrote: “Things may develop faster than we imagine. The aftermath of the collapse of American power in Vietnam - and how they ran and left their agents - is noteworthy. Because of that, we must be ready starting now.”

Most experts and the heroic veterans who served there agree that Vietnam was winnable, but doomed to failure because of politician meddling. Today, it can be assumed based on what liberals are saying that some of our political leaders are predicated to repeating history.
