As Troops Build Momentum Dems Stick Foot Out To Trip Them

As I write this post it is all I can do to contain the righteous wrath against a group of losers that continue to blow gleefully beyond the line at warp speeds. Nearly every day I read about yet another outrageous action by American Leftists that is so ridiculous, deceitful or angering that all support or credibility will be permanently erased from them. Of course the majority of people would need to know about these actions in order to react to them and the media only has time for stories about bathroom signals.

I wonder what the media would do it were discovered that the Dems were diverting funds to Al Queada and the insurgency. Or if they were revealing classified information to the enemy. Or if they were making deals with Iran and Syria to fight against our troops. Since they are Dems and the media is what it is, perhaps my point is weaker than I intend. In any case, the Dems are in the process of doing something equivalent to the things listed above. Whether or not it began purposefully, there has been plenty of warning and time to convey to the Dems the harmful effects on our troops by voting at this time to pass a resolution on the Armenian Genocide by the Ottoman Empire. Instead of waiting for a better time to consider this over 90 year old matter, the Dems are pressing ahead in spite of the likely effects on our troops if Turkey prevents us from using their country for crucial supply lines. According to AFP:
House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi said possible reprisals affecting Turkey's cooperation with the US military were "hypothetical" and would not derail the resolution.
What Nancy "The Stumbler" Pelosi fails to recognize in her irresponsible offhanded reference to the "hypothetical" is what happens to her and her friends when this hypothetical situation becomes a reality. She was clearly warned that this action could get some of our troops killed. What will she say when troops do get killed when the Turkish government stops key supplies like Mine Resistant Ambush Protected vehicles? The better question is what will the media allow her to get away with saying when troops get killed because of this irresponsible political ploy?

While there is no doubt this awful mass murder of Armenians is a serious breach against humanity, the question is why they are bringing up this action that occurred during WWI. Note, I did not say WWII - there is only one 'I' - WWI. This action has been denounced before. Ronald Reagan publicly labeled it a genocide. The Democrats, however, feel the need at this time to anger an ally in our war in Iraq.

Instead of setting aside this business until a time when our troops are not in harms way, Pelosi makes matters worse by bringing up other genocides:
"Genocide still exists, and we saw it in Rwanda; we see it now in Darfur," Pelosi said.
Interesting that she wants to pass a resolution against a nearly century old dispute while invoking the names of two genocides that Democrats have failed to aid: Bill Clinton and his NATO general Wesley Clark stood by and watched the genocide in Rwanda. The Democrat Congress is standing by and watching the China funded genocide in Darfur. Pelosi also says:
"Some of the things that are harmful to our troops relate to values -- Abu Ghraib, Guantanamo, torture. All of those issues (are) about who we are as a country," she added.
So the Stumbler embarrasses herself again by equating Abu Ghraib with genocide by speaking of them in the same breath. She also forwards the unproven allegations about Guantanamo and torture by the US. She stupidly forgets that her party has won the election and as the Majority, she is in a much better position to expose any torture that is occurring at Gitmo. If she knows something and refuses to act upon it as Speaker of the House, is she not culpable? Instead she is allowed to refer to it freely without any responsibility to act - if it is true.

In summary the timing, the repercussions and the willful ignoring of consequences point to a very ugly picture of the Democrat's motives in this action. Since the surge began to take hold and the report by General Petreaus, we are seeing the situation in Iraq looking more promising. The Dems took a PR beating over their treatment of Petreaus. They have been lashing out like children throwing a tantrum ever since. They supported the twisting of the words of Bill O'Reilly and Rush Limbaugh to try and manufacture scandals of high profile conservatives. Now as the troops continue to build momentum, the Dems are sticking out their foot to try and trip them as they run by. The real story of the year is how the Dems continue their scandalous behavior without creating any scandals. Such is the way things are when the media carries their water in tanker trucks.

    Muslims Against Sharia commend House Democrats and Speaker Pelosi for pressing ahead with an Armenian genocide bill. Republican opposition to the bill is pure manifestation of moral relativism.
    Muslims Against Sharia condemn Turkish government for refusing to acknowledge Armenian genocide and recalling its US ambassador in response to the bill.

    Welcome. Thanks for commenting. I would agree with you if the genocide was recent. However, to claim the Republicans are practicing moral relativism because they think a hundred years after the fact they want to wait for a better time is ridiculous.

    I think Turkey is wrong for their refusal to admit the genocide and to threaten the US because of this. However, I think if something can wait almost a hundred years, it can wait a little longer. Why should today's soldiers pay for the feet dragging of Congress during the last century?

    Muslims Against Sharia: now that sounds like an organization I would agree with a lot.

    However, I see things a little bit differently here. Yes, Turkey is being childish in its reaction to Congress simply stating the obvious. But Congress is being childish by choosing now of all time to strain an indispensable relationship. I mean, wasn't it the Democrats who have been bemoaning Bush's "cowboy diplomacy," trampling on the feet of allies in the blind pursuit of some ideological end? Well, now the shoe is on the other foot.

    Congress' declaration won't change history. It won't make the Turks change their attitudes. It won't bring back the dead. But it sure can cause a whole lot of harm....

    Yeah, I think I will like the other things MAS would have to say.
