When Clinton committed troops to Bosnia:

"You can support the troops but not the president." --Rep Tom Delay (R-TX)

"Well, I just think it's a bad idea. What's going to happen is they're going to be over there for 10, 15, maybe 20 years." --Joe Scarborough (R-FL)

"Explain to the mothers and fathers of American servicemen that may come home in body bags why their son or daughter have to give up their life?" --Sean Hannity, Fox News, 4/6/99

"[The] President . . . is once again releasing American military might on a foreign country with an ill-defined objective and no exit strategy. He has yet to tell the Congress how much this operation will cost. And he has not informed our nation's armed forces about how long they will be away from home. These strikes do not make for a sound foreign policy." --Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA)

"American foreign policy is now one huge big mystery. Simply put, the administration is trying to lead the world with a feel-good foreign policy." --Rep Tom Delay (R-TX)

"If we are going to commit American troops, we must be certain they have a clear mission, an achievable goal and an exit strategy." --Karen Hughes, speaking on behalf of George W Bush

"I had doubts about the bombing campaign from the beginning . . I didn't think we had done enough in the diplomatic area." --Senator Trent Lott (R-MS)

"I cannot support a failed foreign policy. History teaches us that it is often easier to make war than peace. This administration is just learning that lesson right now. The President began this mission with very vague objectives and lots of unanswered questions. A month later, these questions are still unanswered. There are no clarified rules of engagement. There is no timetable. There is no legitimate definition of victory. There is no contingency plan for mission creep. There is no clear funding program. There is no agenda to bolster our over-extended military. There is no explanation defining what vital national interests are at stake. There was no strategic plan for war when the President started this thing, and there still is no plan today" --Rep Tom Delay (R-TX)

"Victory means exit strategy, and it's important for the President to explain to us what the exit strategy is." --Governor George W. Bush (R-TX)


Here's what Republicans said about Clinton and Kosovo

 Why did they second-guess our commitment to freedom from genocide and demand that we cut and run?

 "President Clinton is once again releasing American military might on a foreign country with an ill-defined objective and no exit strategy. He has yet to tell the Congress how much this operation will cost. And he has not informed our nation's armed forces about how long they will be
away from home. These strikes do not make for a sound foreign policy."

-Senator Rick Santorum (R-PA)

  
"
No goal, no objective, not until we have those things and a compelling case is made, then I say, back out of it, because innocent people are going to die for nothing. That's why I'm against it."

-Sean Hannity, Fox News, 4/5/99
  
"American foreign policy is now one huge big mystery.  Simply put, the administration is trying to lead the world with a feel- good foreign policy."

- Representative Tom Delay (R-TX)
  
"If we are going to commit American troops, we must be certain they have a clear mission, an achievable goal and an exit strategy."
  

-Karen Hughes, speaking on behalf of presidential candidate George W. Bush


Why did they demoralize our brave men and women in uniform?
  
"I had doubts about the bombing campaign from the beginning...I didn't think we had done enough in the diplomatic area."

-Senator Trent Lott (R-MS)
  

"
You think Vietnam was bad? Vietnam is nothing next to Kosovo."

- Tony Snow, Fox News 3/24/99
  

"
Well, I just think it's a bad idea. What's going to happen is they're going to be over there for 10, 15, maybe 20 years"

-Joe Scarborough (R-FL)
  

"I'm on the Senate Intelligence Committee, so you can trust me and believe me when I say we're running out of cruise missles. I can't tell you exactly how many we have left, for security reasons, but we're almost out of cruise missles."
  
- Senator Inhofe (R-OK )
  
"I cannot support a failed foreign policy. History teaches us that it is often easier to make war than peace. This administration is just learning that lesson right now. The President began this mission with very vague objectives and lots of unanswered questions. A month later, these questions are still unanswered. There are no clarifiedrules of engagement.

There is no agenda to bolster our overextended military. There is no explanation defining what vital national interests are at stake.

-Representative Tom Delay (R-TX)
  
"
I don't know that Milosevic will ever raise a white flag"
  
-Senator Don Nickles (R-OK)
  
"Explain to the mothers and fathers of American servicemen that may come home in body bags why their son or daughter have to give up their life?"
  
- Sean Hannity, Fox News, 4/6/99


Why didn't they support our president in a time of war?
  

"Victory means exit strategy, and it's important for the President to explain to us what the exit strategy is."
  
-Governor George W. Bush (R-TX)
  

"This is President Clinton's war, and when he falls flat on his face, that's his problem."
  
-Senator Richard Lugar (R-IN)
  
"The two powers that have ICBMs that can reach the United States are Russia and China. Here we go in. We're taking on not just Milosevic. We can't just say, 'that little guy, we can whip him.' We have these two other powers that have missiles that can reach us, and we have zero defense thanks to this president."
  
- Senator James Inhofe (R-OK)
  

"
You can support the troops but not the president"
  
-Representative Tom Delay (R-TX)
  

"My job as majority leader is be supportive of our troops, try to have input as decisions are made and to look at those decisions after they're made ... not to march in lock step with everything the president decides to do."
  
-Senator Trent Lott (R-MS)

  

For us to call this a victory and to commend the President of the United States as the Commander in Chief showing great leadership in Operation Allied Force is a farce"
   - Representative Tom Delay (R-TX)


Why did they blame America first?
  
Bombing a sovereign nation for ill-defined reasons with vague objectives undermines the American stature in the world. The international respect and trust for America has diminished every time we casually let the bombs fly."
  
- Representative Tom Delay (R-TX)
  

"Once the bombing commenced, I think then Milosevic unleashed his forces, and then that's when the slaughtering and the massive ethnic cleansing really started"
  

-Senator Don Nickles (R-OK)
  
"
Clinton's bombing campaign has caused all of these problems to explode"
  
-Representative Tom Delay (R-TX)
  

"America has no vital interest in whose flag flies over Kosovo's capital, and no right to attack and kill Serb soldiers fighting on their own soil to preserve the territorial integrity of their own country"
  
-Pat Buchanan (R)

  

"These international war criminals were led by Gen. Wesley Clark ...who clicked his shiny heels for the commander-in-grief, Bill Clinton."

  
- Michael Savage
  

"This has been an unmitigated disaster ... Ask the Chinese embassy. Ask all the people in Belgrade that we've killed. Ask the refugees that we've killed. Ask the people in nursing homes. Ask the people in hospitals."
  
- Representative Joe Scarborough (R-FL)
  

"It is a remarkable spectacle to see the Clinton Administration and NATO taking over from the Soviet Union the role of sponsoring "wars of national liberation."
  
- Representative Helen Chenoweth (R-ID)
  

"America has no vital interest in whose flag flies over Kosovo's capital, and no right to attack and kill Serb soldiers fighting on their own soil to preserve the territorial integrity of their own country"
  
-Pat Buchanan (R )
  

"By the order to launch air strikes against Serbia, NATO and President Clinton have entered uncharted territory in mankind's history. Not even Hitler's grab of the Sudetenland in the 1930s, which eventually led to WW II, ranks as a comparable travesty. For, there are no American interests whatsoever that the NATO bombing will
either help, or protect; only needless risks to which it exposes the American soldiers and assets, not to mention the victims on the ground in Serbia."

Clinton tossed a perfect game. No dead, no loss, no infamy. We rescued an ethnic group that was being massacred. It was, like WWII and Korea, a good war. This war could have been stopped by ending the sanctions, sending in the inspection teams and letting them do their jobs, and dropping 50,000 sniper rifles in the Shia sections of Iraq.

There was an article in Newsweek Online today where the reporter asked Wolfowitz to explain how bad he effed up. Wolfie claimed that we should have bumped off Saddam and then left our little buddy Chalabi in charge, then walked out the door.

These people are too deluded to even be allowed to walk around in public, much less run the most powerful country in the world. It is time to get the most partisan, nasty dems into office and root these fucks out of our government. Then form a third party and toss the Dems out too. We need people who care about our country, not getting reelected or raising money. I will never say the two parties are the same, because that is ludicrous. But our two-party system makes everyone play safe unless they think they cannot be defeated. I want a party that tells the truth, and the hell with being smeared by nazis.

Clinton tossed a perfect game.

- Blowing up $100 dummy tanks with multi-million dollar munitions
- Shot down Stealth Fighter parts was sold to China
- Indiscriminate bombings that killed civilians of all ethnic backgrounds
- DU and industrial pollution scattered across the country-side
- Post occupation deaths of US troops from land mines, booby traps, and vehicle accidents
- Post occupation deaths of other nations troops, killed by the people we "saved"
- Generation of Anti-US feelings in former Soviet Republics and Europe
- Almost total displacement of Serbian population from Kosovo
- The people we "saved" continued to launch assualts into Macedonia and shoot at our own troops.
- Alomst Starting WWIII with the Russians (To his credit Clinton sacked Clark within 24 hours over that one.)
- Sham "war crimes" trial (Maybe Slobo could give Saddam a few tips?)

Yes, such a glorious "victory". So glorious, that the US went crawing back to Belgrade about a year after the bombing campaign to ask the Serbs to help them control the KLA. The same KLA that had been built up by the CIA in years previous. Poor Slobo, no one ever told him that genocide is okay so long as it's CIA financed.

Not that this gets Bush Jr. off the hook. Oh no, in 2000 he ran on a platform of turning the Kosovo mess over the EU and UN and bringing all US troops home. He lied. Hard to beleive, I know. And now with the Taliban gone and Afghanistan pumping out the poppies like no tommorow, smugglers have a direction route through Kosovo (now that the pesky Serbian anti-narcotics policemen are all expelled or dead) to get Heroin to the EU market.

Yup, drop a few bombs, kill a few bad guys, depose the evil leader whose the next Hitler, and the locals will take to democracy like fish to water. Hmmmm, I think I've head this song before.

Yeah, the Kosovo war was a total humiliating loss for the United States. Do you live in reality? We got rid of a nazi killer without killing and wounding thousands of our kids. Period. And Clinton ran it, and the repukes said it would be a quagmire. Guess who was right?

Guess who is the first president to reduce the national debt since Kennedy? Yup, the old Clenis, the best president since Roosevelt.

One of them made me wealthy and happy, one of them nearly bankrupted me. Guess which was which. You gotta lighten up. There is good and there is bad. Clinton was GOOD, Bush is BAD. My state has lost $6000 per household because of this piece of shit; I have lost at least that much.

Dems watch our money, the Repukes love to spend it by giving the wealthy tax cuts. How much did YOU get in the tax cuts? I bet, about $500. The rich fucks got $300K. Don't be stupid.
