Pre-emptive war is a necessary evil in the modern world.

In the past, the wars were fought exclusively by nations. If a nation wanted to go to war, it had to equip and train large number of men, which made any sudden attack on an alert enemy impossible. Weaponry available just hundred years ago was limited by small arms, artillery, and aircraft, which necessitated prolonged war with any decently prepared adversary.

Today, the world is awash with countries obtaining nuclear weapons. The nuke, the miracle weapon of ultimate destruction, which was available exclusively to superpowers only 30 years ago, today is owned by countries like North Korea, India, and Pakistan. Nuclear weapons programs have been discovered and documented in countries like Lybia, Syria, Iraq and Iran.

The reality of today is that any entity — terrorist group or nation of ANY size — that has access to nuclear weapons and capability to place them on USA territory, can realistically defeat USA, if it succeeds to do so. And the enemy does not have to be a nation at all — look at Hezbollah versus Israel, Al-Qaeda versus USA! Imagine a hypothetical scenario: a terrorist organization smuggles nukes accross US-Mexico border into USA, and simultaneously detonates the nuclear bombs in LA, Atlanta, NYC, Dallas, Miami, and Chicago. If, in fact such a horrific atrocity would take place without warning, the USA, for all practical purposes, would be done – majority of people would be killed, and those left alive would hardly be able to re-establish our country as we know it.

This is why, it is a sad but crucial necessity to keep pre-emptive war as a viable option when dealing with nations/entities that are unresponsive to other means of negotiations and present clear danger to USA.

Within this framework, Iraq war is a justifiable one. President Bush attempted for 6 months to resolve the Iraqi WMD crisis in UN security council to no avail. Iraqis and the Europeans flatly refused to provide any guarantees that Iraq did in fact destroy its WMD, and that no terrorist group will ever take possession of stockpiles of nerve gas that Saddam used against Kurds. After six months of fruitless negotiations, just having been brutally attacked on 911, our country had no other option that to pre-emptively attack Iraq in order to be sure it will not be a threat to USA any more.

Would JFK be proud of Daily Kos?

Read my previous posting below, please, for detailed explanation, and please let me know!

THE ORIGINAL POSTING:

I bet JFK is real “proud” of how modern-day Democrats characterize their Conservative political opponents (not enemies like Al-Qaeda, but opponents, I remind you). I bet he is rolling in his grave!

Here is the quote from Daily Kos, read for yourself:

“LMFAO–listen, douchebag, do us all a favor and go say that on national TV. We can always use another screencap of a wild-eyed half-literate nutcase spouting discredited bullsh*t.

Do us another favor and put that f*cking crap on your car….has it dawned on you imbeciles that the country is sick of the F.U.D. yet? Has it occured to you f*cking sycophantic lickspittle wannabe-fascists that the country has heard no shortage of “support terrorism, vote Democrat [sic]” over the last six years and despite that still voted in the Democrats in November?”

I and this guy disagree on issues — I am fine with that. I am ready to disagree with any Liberal as an opponent who respects him or her, not a personal enemy. But it was this guy’s choice to make political debate into personal, hateful, and intolerant name calling. And the scariest part — nobody disagreed with him, and everyone in Liberal side seems to be OK with that!

Let me be honest — there are crazy nuts, insane hateful people on both sides of the political divide. That is no great discovery for anyone. But I am yet to see when a comment that uses same language and word choice above does NOT get deleted from Michelle Malkin or LGF. Sure, sometimes people use risque words and comparisons, but never do they descend into the cesspool of “you f**kin imbecile spouting bullsh*t”. You can accuse Republicans and Conservatives of not understanding, disagreeing — whatever — but never can you accuse them of policy of insulting Liberals with slurs and getting away with it.

When Conservative (like Ann Coulter) says a stupid thing about a Liberal (like Edwards), he or she is a racist, bigoted demagogue (and I agree!)

When a Liberal says a stupid thing about a Conservative, it is free speech and it is OK? IS THAT IT?

Does one hateful right-winger like Coulter, who gets axed for saying one stupid thing on TV, justify hundreds of hateful people on Daily Kos every day, who get away with it?

Someone told me on this issue that “People can only speak for themselves.“ He meant that website is not responsible for comments posted on it. Yes, same thing is claimed by KKK website! “It is not the website, it is just opinions of individuals!”

let’s boil this down to something useful:

1. there are nuts on both sides, who are nasty (nobody is “snow white”)
2. freedom of speech only protects what YOU PERSONALLY say
3. speech on a website is a speech BY THAT WEBSITE, even if someone else wrote it.

here is a hypothetical story:

1. Let us imagine a world in which a KKK bigot can go to a CNN.com and make an article insulting blacks. Let us imagine that CNN.com refuses to remove that article, claiming that it is “free speech”. Would you agree with that?

2. Let us also imagine, that CNN.com does, in fact, remove article. By removing that article, CNN.com does not violate bigot’s right to free speech – he can say whatever to whomever he wants. He can talk his lungs out, for what we care. But CNN.com makes it clear that it DOES NOT AGREE with what he says. Would you not agree that is a right thing to do?

Well, Daily Kos is CNN.com , and the people who say “Repukes are fu*kin imbecile dumba$$es” are the bigot in my story. And that is what became of Democratic party today. Truman and JFK are rolling in their graves, I am sure.

P.S.: I repeat yet again, for those who will twist my words : if a Conbservative say something like “Liberals must die” he should be banned from blog. That is insulting, hateful, personal language that does not contribute to debate. It happens, and people get banned. But, bottom line is: there is no Conservative “Daily Kos”, creating culture of Liberal-hate amongst conservatives.

P.P.S.: if you are interested, please read here a previous posting and very lengthy discussion I had about this subject.

Who is modern-day KKK of USA? (not who you think it is!)

Only it uses the name Daily Kos. I bet JFK is real “proud” of how modern-day Democrats characterize their Conservative political opponents (not enemies like Al-Qaeda, but opponents, I remind you). I bet he is rolling in his grave!

Who is worse than Al-Qaeda?

Daily Kos

There is a huge difference between being a political opponent and being an enemy. I treat all Democrats as respected opponents, bit I rarely see a Democrat reciprocating that. Why? Daily Kos!

Daily Kos is the #1 enemy of this country, because it treats all Conservatives as vile enemies, not opponents worthy of civility. It spreads and profits from political hatred, that inches us closer and closer towards open political violence. Already, Free speech rights of Conservatives are being violently infringed upon by Liberal mob, such as, for instance, Columbia University students attacking Minuteman Project founder.

This website

  1. promotes hate towards all Republicans (read here, here , here – results of 5 minute search), EXAMPLE : “I still have a score to settle with the Repukes regarding the way they insulted Kerry’s wife for being who she is. I’ll take my shots at any of these bastards where I can get them.
  2. runs anti-Semitic and racist ads (see here and here)
  3. promotes anti-soldier propaganda — the famous “Screw Them posting about four contractors who were lynched alive in Falluja in 2005.

And now, all Democratic candidates are going over to Daily Kos Convention to be sycophants to these vile haters! What am I, as a voter, supposed to make of this — that Democrats support these sick things?

Do not misundertand me : Republicans are far from perfect. But NO REPUBLICAN CAN BE ACCUSED OF HATING DEMOCRATS!

Daily Kos and people associating themselves with it, are worse than Al-Qaeda.

At the very least Usama is honest, while Daily Kos are wrapping themselves in American flag, while engaging in promotion of political hatred.
