You already know that we’re not a great believer in pledges or the efficacy of petitions.
You most CERTAINLY know that we’re not a great fan of Hugh Hewitt and the Kool Aid Gang.
So us linking to this and urging you to sign the petition and pledge it links to ought to tell you something.
Do I believe that The Surge™ is a magical bullet? No, I don’t. I believe that the only magical bullet in our arsenal is hitting our enemies, ALL of our enemies, and hitting them HARD.
But I know that our Armed Forces and Gen. Petraeus are right when they point out that abandoning the new approach and the Long War will be a massive defeat for us that we’re certain to pay for very dearly.
I also know that the RINOs in the Senate who are currently working on a “non-binding” resolution against The Surge™ are nothing but a bunch of opportunist fuckweasels wanting to eat their cake and have it and that they ought to be dragged outside and shot for providing material aid and comfort to our enemies. If they’re against fighting the war, then let them stand up and block it conclusively, let them be counted as al-Qaeda’s useful idiots responsible for untold thousands of dead Americans.
Don’t let them weasel out of it this way.
And let them know that if they as much as THINK about handing this cheap victory to terrorism, then they will forever be shunned from human company.
Let them know that they, should they as much as entertain the notion of voting for this act of high treason, will be pariahs until they die, that their pathetic pleas for donations will go unheard and that we will all pray for the day when this great nation forever forgets that they were citizens.
And let them know that this great nation, while suffering under an obvious lack of testicular fortitude in Washington, will never run out of utility poles and rope.
(Oh, and if you need another reason to sign it, the fact that freshly-minted moonbat John Cole doesn’t like it ought to do the trick. There is no limit to what he will do to hold on to the Kos readers that he has managed to attract over the years).
