Would you like a backrub Mr. bin Laden?

In an interview with ABC News, Vice President Dick Cheney, with his permanent crooked smirk, said that House Democrats, who recently passed a resolution expressing disapproval of President Bush's plans to send 21,500 more U.S. troops to Iraq, were pursuing a course that will “validate the al Qaeda strategy.” The smarmy leaker of classified information said, "I think if we were to do what Speaker Pelosi and Congressman Murtha are suggesting, all we will do is validate the Al Qaeda strategy," the vice president told ABC News. "The Al Qaeda strategy is to break the will of the American people ... try to persuade us to throw in the towel and come home, and then they win because we quit." Ouch. What the unindicted co-conspirator really was saying was that Democrats have taken al Qaeda and the points and bet against their home team.

The "strategy" Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Jack Murtha are pursuing is trying to pass restrictions on the troops that are to be surged into the jihadist civil war in Iraq that someone said was "in its last throes" not too long ago. The Murtha restrictions are to limit deployments for troops to one-year tours of duty to avoid the type of stop-loss indentured servitude going on in Iraq and Afghanistan; that all troops being sent to Iraq have the equipment they need for their mission and that they are fully trained on that equipment before being sent into battle and that they have one-year between deployments so that they can see their wife and kids for longer than a long weekend before being sent back to defend W's right to never admit a wrong. Short story - properly training our troops and rotating troops after one-year and giving them sometime before re-deployment is an al Qaeda strategy. I think someone's sanity is in its last throes.

Speaker Pelosi, ran like Cindy Brady and "told" on Cheney. "No one likes a tattletale," said a famous sage name Mike Brady. Pelosi phoned President Bush to complain about the Vice President's remarks but couldn't reach him. "Tell her I'm not here," you could almost imagine W saying and then forcing Chief of Staff Josh Bolten to take the call and listen to her whining. "He called us unpatriotic!" sounded more like a baby's plaintive wail to Bolten.

Yes, Cheney is a vicious bully and a plague on this nation but what he said is no better or worse than when Pelosi or Murtha, or anyone else for that matter, argues rightly that Bush and Cheney's policies are an al Qaeda's wet dream. Invading Iraq has only strengthened al Qaeda and jihadists around the world. Iraq is the best recruiting tool for al Qaeda and related Islamic terror organizations. Terrorism has only increased since 2003. The Taliban, al Qaeda's protectors in Afghanistan are packing up the truck and moving back in. Abu Ghraib, Gitmo, extraordinary renditions and torture prisons around the world have only energized the al Qaeda base (the Base's base?) and given them invaluable propaganda tools to use against us.

So I have no problem that Cheney says the Democrats are pursuing a strategy that validates the al Qaeda strategy. They are only only pursuing a strategy. Cheney and Bush have actually implemented a strategy for the last 5 years that has has validated the al Qaeda strategy and made them stronger and more dangerous than they were when we invaded Iraq. So Nancy, stop calling the complaint line at the White House and find a better writer to call these guys what they are - supporters of al Qaeda. I'm available.

If you were around (and not wearing diapers) during the Viet Nam "conflict" you remember the very same rhetoric.

Funny how it was all a bowl of crap soup 40 years ago and it hasn't got any tastier and yet we're still eating it up - or at least the insane third that still support the administration is.

Well, I'll whine. I'll whine that Andrew Sullivan was shocked, SHOCKED, to see a picture of John Kerry with Iran's president. His point was that once, partisanship stopped at this country's shore. But when Australia's prime minister states that Obama is al Qaeda's wet dream, and Cheney visits Australia the same week and says nothing - well, there seems to be some inconsistency here.
