Snappy Answers to Leftists (english)
11 Mar 2003
Modified: 12 Mar 2003
Tired of those stupid liberal soundbytes about the impending war against Iraq? Here are some handy snappy answers!
Leftists: The United States is taking unilateral action against Iraq!
Answer: So far, it's a 90-member worldwide "unilateral" coalition.

Leftists: We are in a rush to war.
Answer: An 11-year rush?

Leftists: Tough inspections can disarm Saddam Hussein without invading Iraq.
Answer: Years of inspections have done wonders so far.

Leftists: We should let the inspectors finish their job.
Answer: We did. They didn't. We will.

Leftists: Why fight? The Iraqi military is weaker than in 1991.
Answer: But their biological weapons and chemical weapons are much more dangerous.

Leftists: There's no proof of weapons.
Answer: We know they have 'em, we know they hide 'em, and we have tape recordings and photographs. What more is needed? An Iraqi rocket in Martin Sheen's shorts?


Leftists: If we invade, Saddam Hussein might use those weapons of mass destruction against us.
Answer: I thought you said Iraq didn't have them!

Leftists: But terrorists might attack if we invade Iraq.
Answer: Oh…so if we don't attack Iraq, terrorists will never strike again?

Leftists: We shouldn't go to war without a UN resolution.
Answer: ANOTHER resolution? What about the last 16 resolutions? Shall we use them as wallpaper? Or shall we use the same resolutions Bill Clinton used in Bosnia?

Leftists: We don't have a real declaration for war.
Answer: It's called "Joint Congressional Resolution #114."

Leftists: If North Korea has nuclear weapons, why aren't we invading them first?
Answer: First things first.

North Korea has not invaded two neighboring countries within the past two decades. Iraq did.

North Korea does not pay $20,000 in blood money to the families of terrorist murderers. Iraq does.

North Korea has not used nerve gas and mustard gas against invaded countries as well as its own citizens. It's merely starving them. Iraq HAS used poison gases.

Iraq, not North Korea, welcomes and houses Arab terrorists who despise Israel and its only ally in the world, America. There are more reasons, but these will do.

Leftists: European leaders are against the war.
Answer: The Reichstag wasn't attacked. The Grande Palace wasn't attacked. The Kremlin wasn't attacked. And the Jerry Lewis Lifetime Achievement Museum wasn't attacked. America was attacked. And besides, except for the tantrums of France, Belgium and Germany, only three European nations aren't willing to defend freedom. The entire rest of Europe is with America.

Leftists: The French don't support the war.
Answer: Oh…did they surrender already?

Leftists: Germany objects to this war.
Answer: Germany objected to Reagan's "attitude" towards the Soviet Union. Of course, they objected to our presence in 1943 as well.

Leftists: Belgians are against the war.
Answer: I can live without Waffles and ice cream.

Leftists: Russia doesn't support the war.
Answer: They are still angry over Reagan's brilliant Cold War victory.

Leftists: Polls show Europeans are against this war.
Answer: Polls show Europeans believe their freedom was achieved by endlessly debating in marvelous dining halls, conveniently forgetting their right to be pompous blowhards was granted with American blood, not fabulous wine and brie…

Leftists: We should build a coalition with our friends.
Answer: With friends like these, who needs enemies?

Leftists: What happens if we can't build a United Nations coalition?
Answer: Who cares?

Leftists: But the UN is the world's most respected governing body.
Answer: Not as respected as the US military.

Leftists: America has always waited until enemies attacked.
Answer: Now that oceans can't hold back enemies, pre-emptive war is forever a necessity.

Leftists: War will cost billions!
Answer: So…how much is YOUR city worth?

Leftists: President Bush says he's willing to violating the 1976 executive order forbidding assassinations of foreign leaders.
Answer: As soon as the ink is dry on rescinding that idiotic order, will someone please pull the trigger? The line forms to the right…

Leftists: Many Senators don't support Bush
Answer: Are you speaking of the Senators from Bordeaux?

Leftists: Tom Daschle says George Bush has a "credibility gap"
Answer: When was the last time we came to Tom Daschle for the truth???

Leftists: These problems didn't happen under Clinton.
Answer: Actually, they happened. But Clinton ignored them. Now, Bush will clean up his mess.

Leftists: But Clinton didn't start a war.
Answer: Unless his girlfriend was testifying before congress…

Leftists: Bush 1st should have taken out Hussein in '91.
Answer: That 1991 UN resolution forbade a march on Baghdad. Remember?

Leftists: Millions of peace activists are demanding we stop the war.
Answer: Millions of Iraqi's are begging for us to start the war.

Leftists: Thousands of innocents will be killed or injured.
Answer: That's a lot less than Hussein is killing right now. (Of course, there's only one man that needs to be killed…)

Leftists: Young Americans will die in battle.
Answer: Would you prefer they die in skyscrapers?

Leftists: Protesters have genuine objections to war
Answer: Just like they did in Somalia? Bosnia?

Leftists: People are coming from all over the world to act as "human shields".
Answer: Quick, hurry, before the bombs start dropping…

Leftists: This is about American Imperialism.
Answer: So which country do we own? What nation sends us their tax dollars? If America was imperialist, we'd already own the entire world. Who could stand in our way?

Leftists: This is Blood for Oil
Answer: The only blood is the Iraqi people tortured, starved and killed while Hussein builds massive palaces to hide nuclear weapons…all financed with Iraqi oil.

Leftists: This is a racist war.
Answer: America happily endorses a multi-cultural attitude towards anyone who dares to take away our freedom.Regardless of race, color or creed, we hunt them down and kill them.
Leftists: A U.S.-led invasion of Iraq is a great recruiting tool for terrorists.
Answer: Have fun recruiting people into oppressive misery as they enjoy their first taste of freedom.

Leftists: An attack on Iraq could seriously undermine and destabilize Arab nations.
Answer: Destabilize the region? Is that possible? Do you think? The sooner we topple these tlineoppressive 14th century terrorist regimes the better.

Leftists: Are we prepared for a multi-billion dollar occupation?
Answer: Were we prepared to liberate Europe and Japan in 1945? South Korea in 1953? Grenada? El Salvador? Kuwait? The Eastern Bloc? Afghanistan? Nations always love Americans when we rescue them from tyranny. The price of freedom is never free.

Leftists: Polls show Americans are more concerned about the threat from al-Qaeda than from Iraq.
Answer: It's not a war against Al Qaeda. It's not a war against Iraq. It's a war against terrorism. Anywhere we find it. One nation at a time.

Leftists: American opinion is against the war.
Answer: No, it's not. A majority of Americans want to fight now, not later.

article#11519


Leftists: The United States is taking unilateral action against Iraq!
Answer: So far, it's a 90-member worldwide "unilateral" coalition.
Reasonable: Don't try to add up numbers of committed ally's after your second drink; No. There are not 90 countries ready to burn, slash and spill blood with us. Turn off the Fantasy channel before you go on the Net.

Leftists: We are in a rush to war.
Answer: An 11-year rush?
Reasonable: As I recall our history - we do not attack countries in shambles that are no threat to us even if we are around them for 111 years . No that was not Iraq at the WCT, Tommy.

Leftists: Tough inspections can disarm Saddam Hussein without invading Iraq.
Answer: Years of inspections have done wonders so far.
Reasonable: Correct - we destroyed all weapons worth disarming the First time - or didn't you notice that US forces didn't lose a single man to Iraqi weapons of 'mass destruction'. Try to control your fantasies.

Leftists: We should let the inspectors finish their job.
Answer: We did. They didn't. We will.
Reasonable: There wasn't much left to find. Inspectors will find it. We won't.

Leftists: Why fight? The Iraqi military is weaker than in 1991.
Answer: But their biological weapons and chemical weapons are much more dangerous.
Reasonable: Iteresting notion. What's your source - the BUSH administration? Or have you spent a few months in Iraq lately?

Leftists: There's no proof of weapons.
Answer: We know they have 'em, we know they hide 'em, and we have tape recordings and photographs. What more is needed? An Iraqi rocket in Martin Sheen's shorts?
Reasonable: Since we have photographs why don't we just give the photos to the inspectors so THEY can find them? Oh. That would make it too easy? Oh OK - Then we'll just keep on SAYING we have photos - "And you can't prove we don't. Nah nah na nanah."

Leftists: If we invade, Saddam Hussein might use those weapons of mass destruction against us.
Answer: I thought you said Iraq didn't have them!Reasonable: I thought YOU said he Did? Why didn't he use them the first time? We've been watching him ever since!

Leftists: But terrorists might attack if we invade Iraq.
Answer: Oh…so if we don't attack Iraq, terrorists will never strike again?
Reasonable: Oh - So. If we do attack that will calm the terrorists right down - and they will spend there bomb-money on burgers at McDonalds?

Leftists: We shouldn't go to war without a UN resolution.
Answer: ANOTHER resolution? What about the last 16 resolutions? Shall we use them as wallpaper? Or shall we use the same resolutions Bill Clinton used in Bosnia?
Reasonable: You mean all the resolutions that the whole UN passed that we Vetoed in the security council? And Now they should all Sign on with us because BUSHBOY wants to slaughter?

Leftists: We don't have a real declaration for war.
Answer: It's called "Joint Congressional Resolution #114."
Reasonable:That was for Afghanistan, jerk. Try not to get your countries mixed up.

Leftists: If North Korea has nuclear weapons, why aren't we invading them first?
Answer: First things first.
Reasonable: Yeah Right! Beat up the helpless country in shambles 'First'. Don't try Korea. They may not be so easy - we might get a bloody nose - or a lot of Bloody DEAD.

North Korea has not invaded two neighboring countries within the past two decades. Iraq did.
Reasonable: The US SUPPORTED BOTH those invasions in committment, Tommy. April Glaspie gave Saddam the US governments assurance that we wouldn't interfer with his area squabbles - (the guy didn't know we were trying to get a reason to attack and get his oil)
And WE gave Saddam his materials and Formula know how for his Poison gas against the Iranians (who at that time the IRANIANS were our "bad guy". (Timmerman's book "The Poison Gas Connection"
Don't you know ANY of this history, do you, Tommy?

North Korea does not pay $20,000 in blood money to the families of terrorist murderers. Iraq does.
Reasonable: Yeah OK Tommy. If your son crashes his car into some people and then you die in an accident - Don't worry, we'll Do the Right Thing! We will make sure the Rest of your family starves to death because your son was a Terrorist. That's only fair - isn't it?

I will get the rest of these later. But as you learn more about the OIL Deal that Bush and Rumsfeld have made with the Ingoing Iraqi government to break the old oil contracts and give them All to US corporations - don't you just suspect that you have made an ass out of yourself here? Ay?

Nah - its not about OIL is it, Tommy?
