McCain against USA

Is McCain trying to destroy USA?

Let me see the list:

1. McCain-Feingold – the most blatant attack for political freedom of speech. The act places ludicrous limitations on how candidates for political office can be criticised in an election race. If he insane? I do not know! Does he try to silence freedom of speech? YES!

2. McCain-Kennedy – his creating this piece of liberal vomit legislation was like a slap in my face. I am a legal immigrant, I became a US citizen three years ago. I never have thought that a Republican would be so hare-brained where it comes to respecting the immigration laws and border security of this nation. Today he acts as if immigration laws do not count. Perhaps, tomorrow he will say Fifth Amendment does not count too?

Illegal immigrants do not pay taxes, steal IDs and Social Security numbers, violate our sovereign right to secure borders, violate immigration laws. Many of the illegals come back and repeat same offences even if deported, exacerbating insult to American laws and sovereignty. If you want to come to USA, please do so – but respect our laws and our borders, damn it! Is it too much to ask for you to come respect our laws and ask for a permission to enter our country? I am an immigrant, and if I did it, so can you.

3. McCain’s libel against Romney – to suggest that private discussion between President of USA and Prime Minister of Iraq about strategy and timetables amounts to supporting a public date for withdrawal is stupid! Has McCain lost his mind demanding that US President not even think about possibility that US troops might be needed elsewhere? Isn’t that the very definition of strategy – discussing ALL possible scenarios, including withdrawal?

4. McCain says leadership is not management – any good manager, by definition is a good leader. His assertion is just moronic. So, McCain wants to be just a “leader” but not a “manager”? Hmm, German word for leader is Furer, so, I guess, McCain wants to be the Furer of America. What about actually doing some work – like planning a war, managing (yes, managing) economy? He spent all his political life in Washington, what does he know about management of economy or management or bureaucracy? Nothing! He is a professional “talker”, whose only claim to fame is crappy McCain-Feingold and McCain-Kennedy bills. He supported surge? Good for him, but that does not excuse his horrific ignorance of other issues, just like economy and immigration.

McCain was a great hero and a great soldier. But as a politician, he consistently takes position that I cannot characterize any other way as being against interests of USA. He is a deeply misguided man who may cause America a huge deal of harm if elected.

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.

Why We Fight.

As nicely said by Newt Gingrich in interview to FOX News:

What I would say to any Democrat who wants America to leave is quite simple. Millions of Iraqis have sided with the United States. They are known in their neighborhoods. They are known in their cities. If we abandon them, they are going to be massacred.How can you, in good conscience, walk away from these decent people and leave them behind to a fate which we’ve seen, for example, in Afghanistan, where the Taliban recently was machine-gunning girls as they walked to school because the Taliban is determined to stop women from getting educated?

We are faced with evil opponents. Those opponents need to be defeated. And if General Petraeus and Ambassador Crocker come back in September and say, “We actually can win this thing,” I want to understand the rationale that says, “No, we don’t want to let America win. Let’s legislate defeat for the United States.”

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.

Taliban to use smaller suicide-vests to limit civillian casualties.

I only wish:

It is NATO which is going to limit itself by using only smaller bombs in Afghanistan. I think it is a huge mistake — only more civilians will die in suicide bombings, unless Taliban will be crushed asap. This is like invasion of Japan going forward because Truman chickened-out and did not drop a bomb on Japan.

Are we fighting a war in Afghanistan, or is it a police operation? What is next — our troops reading Miranda rights to Taliban?

From GlobalSecurity.org:

NATO To Use Smaller Bombs in Afghanistan


30 July 2007
NATO officials say they plan to use smaller bombs in Afghanistan to limit the rise in civilian casualties.

NATO Secretary-General Jaap de Hoop Scheffer said the number of civilians killed during fighting between NATO with the Taleban has damaged the reputation of the alliance. He added that NATO commanders recently instructed troops to hold off attacking rebels in situations where civilians would be at risk.

The NATO chief spoke in an interview published Monday by the Financial Times. In the past, Scheffer has blamed Taleban militants for using Afghan civilians as human shields.

The coalition in Afghanistan has been criticized for the number of civilian casualties resulting from combat operations against the Taleban and other militants.

Last month, Afghan President Hamid Karzai accused NATO and U.S.-led forces of killing 90 civilians in air strikes and artillery fire against the Taleban.

Some information for this report was provided by AFP.

Cindy Sheehan profits from her son’s death just like Halliburton.

Cindy Sheehan leads the charge of pro-defeat movement by saying that “war profiteers as Halliburton are raping the American tax payer of billions of dollars as a matter of company policy” (from original article by C. Sheehan). 

Any reasonable man had to admit — all corporations, just like people, are different. Most (not all, of course) corporations are law-abiding, free-enterprise inventors of new technology, wonder drugs, products and services that drive our lifestyle and powerhouse economy. I am not expert of Halliburton, so, for the sake of argument only, let us say that Halliburton indeed is dirty.

But my point is not about how profoundly useful most honest and law-abiding corporations are. My point is this:

Cindy Sheehan exploits her dead son for own political and financial gain in the very same way as (supposedly dirty) Halliburton exploits war.

FACTS:

1. Cindy Sheehan declared that she runs for Congress against Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D) (video from PoliticalTickerCNN blog).

2. The members of Sheehan’s own peace organization, the Crawford Peace House, have admitted that “tens of thousands donated during Cindy Sheehan’s 2005 war protest are unaccounted for” (from AP report at SFGate).

QUESTIONS:

Would she be in position to run for Congress, if her son would be alive?

Would all that money be given to her if her son would be alive?

Where is the money?

How can SHE talk about Halliburton when SHE embezzled money given to her because of her dead son?

Is she not RAPING American conscience for profit, using corpse of her WAR HERO son as a flag, just as she accuses Halliburton of doing the same?
