Here’s My Plan for Mahmoud

Posted by Ryan on March 23, 2007

In lieu of recent events, here’s my plan for Mahmoud:

  1. Grant him a visa to land his plane and give him permission to go to the United Nations.
  2. Let him in.
  3. Let the British take him into custody for the illegal act of war they perpetrated today.
  4. Watch and see.

Do they have the guts?  Would it up the ante, though!  After the evidence of Iranian support of the vicious anti-American Mahdi Army, their reluctance to abide by UN’s IAEA mandates, and taking 15 Britons from Iraqi waters today, my message is that it is time to arrest Mahmoud, Tony Blair or Gordon Brown or Alistair Campbell or somebody!

The Democrats Did Have a Plan After All

Posted by Mike on March 23, 2007

The Democrats have been squawking for years that they have a plan for the war in Iraq. Several on the right doubted this, but the Democratic Congress proved us wrong. They did indeed have a plan and earlier today, it passed the House of Representatives by a vote of 218-212. The long-awaited Democratic plan for the Iraqi front to the war on terror includes a comprehensive strategy including an artificial withdrawal deadline of September 2008 and funding for other anti-terror measures such as $25 million for spinach farmers, $74 million for peanut storage, and $5 million for shellfishermen.

This plan is so bad that it helped President Bush find his mojo. Surrounded by troops, the President promised to veto the Democrats’ Surrender and Pork Act of 2007 and slammed the circus that is the House of Representatives.

“The purpose of the emergency war spending bill I requested was to provide our troops with vital funding. Instead, Democrats in the House, in an act of political theater, voted to substitute their judgment for that of our military commanders on the ground in Iraq.”

Vice President Cheney has pointed out time and again that an artificial deadline merely provides our enemies an opportunity to hold out until the date certain, at which point they would be free to escalate their campaign of terror. This doesn’t matter to the liberals in Congress though. Sucking up to Code Pink is what really matters. Well, that and cheaper oysters.
