Scoundrels !

Ralph Peters, in today's New York Post, on the Democrats:

PROVIDING aid and comfort to the enemy in wartime is treason. It's not "just politics." It's treason.
And signaling our enemies that Congress wants them to win isn't "supporting our troops."
The "nonbinding resolution" telling the world that we intend to surrender to terrorism and abandon Iraq may be the most disgraceful congressional action since the Democratic Party united to defend slavery.

The Washington Post practically jumps for joy at this development; of course they have made it clear for some time that they would rather see America defeated in Iraq than have President Bush appear victorious, so their cheerleading for treason is to be expected...

And speaking of slavery - since the donkeys can't defend that any longer, they keep the blacks on the plantation by ingraining them with victimization, something they can fall back on when the left drags them into scandal:

The key black South Carolina leader who scored a big payday for his consulting firm just before he endorsed Hillary Rodham Clinton's presidential bid said any allegations of impropriety are laced with racism.
"I'm somewhat offended in the sense that . . . the national media thinks that an African-American in my position cannot support a candidate without being paid off," huffed state Sen. Darrell Jackson, a well-connected lawmaker and pastor whose support is coveted by national campaigns.
His public-relations and consulting firm, Sunrise Enterprises, snagged a deal with Clinton's campaign for $10,000 per month through the 2008 primary.

Ah, with the Clintons around, it's 1994 all over again - just what Hillary thinks the voters are looking for in 2008...
Hey Hil, remember what happened in '94? Salivating Republicans do....

Or is this a repeat of 1975, when Saigon fell after a Democratic Congress cut funds for Vietnam? Yeah, that burnished their national security credentials. Seems like the party of "Progressives" is actually more than a bit regressive....

Politicians make no difference.

We have bought into the Military Industrial Complex (MIC) ever since we took on Russia in the Cold WAR.

Through a combination of public apathy and threats by the MIC we have let the SYSTEM get too large. It is now a SYSTEMIC problem and the SYSTEM is out of control.

I am a 2 tour Vietnam Veteran who recently retired after 36 years of working in the Defense Industrial Complex on many of the weapons systems being used by our forces as we speak.

There is no conspiracy. The SYSTEM has gotten so big that those who make it up and run it day to day in industry and government simply are perpetuating their existance.

The politicians rely on them for details and recommendations because they cannot possibly grasp the nuances of the environment and the BIG SYSTEM.

So, the system has to go bust and then be re-scaled, fixed and re-designed to run efficiently and prudently, just like any other big machine that runs poorly or becomes obsolete or dangerous.

This situation will right itself through trauma. I see a government ENRON on the horizon, with an associated house cleaning.

The next president will come and go along with his appointees and politicos. The event to watch is the collapse of the MIC.
