(back!) Right Message, Wrong Mother

... and we're back! Miss us? ; )

But this does reveal a good point: there are serious questions we need to be asking the White House about the past, present and future of our conflict in Iraq - questions the mainstream media isn’t asking. But is Cindy Sheehan really the best person to be asking these questions? .

Right now I have to say no

Come find out why at Right Message, Wrong Mother.

Speaking of mothers, a happy birthday to my own. : )

And speaking of the mother of all hypocrisies, check out the following statements by familiar faces during the Kosovo conflict, courtesy of Daily Kos:

"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

"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

"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 overextended 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"


"You can support the troops but not the president"

-Representative Tom Delay (R-TX)

The Use-America Right likes to ask 'where were the anti-war protesters during Kosovo?' Well, gee, now we can remember who they were...
