Four years of Bloody War
An editorial


Murdock Todd Cote (Doc)

Since Operation Iraqi Freedom began four year years ago, what have we accomplished? What have we done that has done any good concerning the Iraqi People? So far to day fifty thousand Iraqi’s have been killed another thirty to thirty five thousand wounded. An infrastructure in ruin, what have we paid for George Walker Bush’s madness twenty five hundred and five killed in combat and every day it climbs; wounded in action eighteen thousand and climbing; American civilian private contractors fifty, allied civilian contractors even more and climbing, allied combat death two hundred and fifty and climbing. They call the killing of a senior combatant a victory, I say nay; I see so victory just a dead officer and just as we do we replace him. Now as each day passes sectarian violence spreads helped on by El gaieda and the rest of Osama’s rapid dogs, we bleed and die and Osama and his pack of wolves laugh; when we should be hunting him----we chase our tails in Iraq----when we should be killing El gaieda. The President as I have stated in over a hundred articles said we have freed the Iraqi people----all we have done is destabilize a nation. Yes Saddam is a butcher and some day the Iraqi people would have rose united and removed this tin plated Hitler Want to be from power, with out our help.

The President said that Hussein had weapons of Mass destruction, he had absolutely squat, he said that Mr. Hussein and his government had weapons of bio-chem and that he was working toward again this squat----he said that Mr. Hussein was hiding Top level Elgaieda commander wrong.

How can we go to the American people and say we gave the Iraqi People freedom? When in all doubts all we offered and gave them was death by Elgaieda and the Insurgents and a sectarian civil war. The Iraqi army, republican guard and the New Iraqi Defense force have paid with their lives for what our President Calls freedom.

There were two motions in the senate calling for with drawl of our forces from Iraq and withdrawal of our allies from Iraqi they were both defeated by the Hawks in the Senate (republicans and a few misguided democrats. Who have decided to use Iraqi as a political tool?) The American people want their children, the wives, their fathers, their cousins, brothers and sisters the hell out of there.

We had three catasophes happen here in the United States, Hurricane’s Katrina and Rita which virtually destroyed the southern gulf coast----then the fuel crisis which has not been resolved, why I could not even phantom; it has been several months and the oil production in the gulf coast has not been restored. Thousands left homeless and displaced workers by the thousand; the guard units in these states who should have been here seeing to their people and families are instead bleeding and dying on foreign shores, when they should be searching for missing and interning the dead and distributing food and shelter. The word Fema use to mean something till this man came to power and raped it and put is cronies into positions they neither had the know how or the ware fore to operate. He has opened his own goolog at the naval base in Gitmo, has tried to pass hate laws against anyone who does not share his values of right and wrong. Has passed what he calls the patriot act, has signed an executive order to spy on his own people.

True leadership Mr. Bush is putting people in charge of those departments who actually no what they are doing. True leadership is not picking fights and getting families destroyed its finishing fights that people pick with us. It is an economic policy, a foreign policy, a civil rights policy that works. It is a decision making policy that obeys federal law, it is a government that does no mixs religious values with political agenda to make decisions in the interest of the people. It is setting realistic battle plans for economic, welfare and foreign policy. It is not fly by the seat of your paints foreign policy, it is not lying to the American people---it is not lying to the United Nations Security council, it is not lying to NATO, it is not bull shitting through eight years of hell and causing a living hell for thousands of American and allied families. It’s having objectives and meeting them the right way and it’s not being bought by foreign governments and big business. It is doing the following…………

1. intelligence, find out what is broken
2. objectives, set a clear and precise objective
3. logistics, have the means to meet these objectives
4. supplies, having the support and material to meet your battle plan
5. foreign policy, having one that really works and is not a joke
6. it is negotiating a nuclear arms proliferation act that has teeth and basically puts LRWS (long range weapons systems) out of reach of madmen and sectarian cultures to fanatical for their own good and our safety and the safety of the world. It is not star wars, or interceptor missiles.
7. it is a United Nation Monitoring force that monitors Nuclear energy and has the teeth to stop weapons grade nuclear material from being processed
8. it’s stopping the major powers including our selves from selling Long range weapons systems and the technology to make weapons grade material from being made
9. stop paying corrupt governments that do nothing to stop the war on drugs, stop paying to rebuild country that our suffocating our street with ICE, heroin and so on. I would cut foreign aide out completely

it is not committing our military to hopeless and act of stupidity and dying for no reason what so ever and bleeding for no reason what so ever on foreign soil. President Reagan and your father knew when and when not to use military force. You are so stupid that just to lead a Johnny detail you need directions written on the bottom of your boots. They say you have an MBA from Harvard yeah right you could not run a baseball team or a Dallas-Fort worth bordello with out screwing it up and getting people killed as you are now. So let examine the facts to date after four years of bloody war what have you accomplished? Nothing, jack absolutely nothing---but you have made widows, families with out brothers and sisters, cousins. You have allowed religious groups to influence federal policy with their hate and bigotry toward a group of people who have done nothing to them in any way. Mr. President civil rights belong to all Americans not just who you and Pat Robertson and other say have them.
