Memorial Day, 2007

Today we are supposed to be "celebrating" the
memory of all those who died for our country.
But the loser Democrats will spend their day
detracting and belittling the present day
accomplishments of our fine forces, as they
did with the Vietnam war heros.

In ‘08, the Democrats will be called to task
for their false accusations against the Bush
administration and the President himself.
As soon as the American voters realize that
it is the liberals who have concocted the lies
and false accusations, for selfish reasons
and not for the country’s good, there will
be a huge reversal of congressional control.

I never miss the opportunity to throw
these quotes into the faces of the Democrats
who try to accuse President Bush of invading
Iraq on false pretenses........................
MOSTLY because the liberals hate to be
reminded that they are the biggest single
cause of dissent in this country.... and strictly
for SELFISH votes!

It is particularly amusing to read the words
of Pelosi, the Clintons, Gore and Kerry. It's
amazing, how in a short period of time (that
lead-up to Election Day) the leopards
change their spots.

The Iraqi Threat: A Retrospective:

The question was never if Saddam Hussein
posed a threat; everyone agreed he did. The
question was who was going to do something
about it. "One way or the other, we are
determined to deny Iraq the capacity to develop
weapons of mass destruction and the missiles
to deliver them. That is our bottom
line."- President Clinton, Feb. 4, 1998

"If Saddam rejects peace and we have to use
force, our purpose is clear...We want to
seriously diminish the threat posed by Iraq's
weapons of mass destruction program."
- President Clinton, Feb. 17, 1998

"Iraq is a long way from [the USA], but what
happens there matters a great deal here. For
the risks that the leaders of a rogue state will
use nuclear, chemical or biological weapons
against us or our allies is the greatest security
threat we face."- Madeline Albright, Feb 18, 1998

"He will use those weapons of mass destruction
again, as he has ten times since 1983."
- Sandy Berger, Clinton National Security
Adviser, Feb, 18, 1998

"[W]e urge you, after consulting with Congress,
and consistent with the U.S. Constitution and
laws, to take necessary actions (including, if
appropriate, air and missile strikes on suspect
Iraqi sites) to respond effectively to the threat
posed by Iraq's refusal to end its weapons of
mass destruction programs."-
Letter to President Clinton, signed by Sens.
Carl Levin, Tom Daschle, John Kerry, and
others Oct. 9, 1998

"Saddam Hussein has been engaged in the
development of weapons of mass destruction
technology which is a threat to countries in
the region and he has made a mockery of the
weapons inspection process."-
Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D, CA), Dec. 16, 1998

"Hussein has ... chosen to spend his money
on building weapons of mass destruction and
palaces for his cronies."- Madeline Albright,
Clinton Secretary of State, Nov. 10, 1999

"There is no doubt that ... Saddam Hussein has
invigorated his weapons programs. Reports
indicate that biological, chemical and nuclear
programs continue apace and may be back to
pre-Gulf War status. In adition, Saddam
continues to redefine delivery systems and is
doubtless using the cover of a licit missile
program to develop longer-range missiles that
will threaten the United States and our allies."
- Letter to President Bush, Signed by Sen. Bob
Graham (D, FL,) and others, December 5, 2001

"We begin with the common belief that Saddam
Hussein is a tyrant and a threat to the peace and
stability of the region. He has ignored the
mandated of the United Nations and is building
weapons of mass destruction and the means of
delivering them."- Sen. Carl Levin (D, MI), Sept. 19, 2002

"We know that he has stored secret supplies
of biological and chemical weapons throughout
his country."- Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002

"Iraq's search for weapons of mass destruction
has proven impossible to deter and we should
assume that it will continue for as long as Saddam
is in power."- Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002

"We have known for many years that Saddam
Hussein is seeking and developing weapons of
mass destruction."- Sen. Ted Kennedy (D, MA),
Sept. 27, 2002

"The last UN weapons inspectors left Iraq in
October of 1998. We are confident that Saddam
Hussein retains some stockpiles of chemical and
biological weapons, and that he has since embarked
on a crash course to build up his chemical and
biological warfare capabilities. Intelligence reports
indicate that he is seeking nuclear weapons..."-
Sen. Robert Byrd (D, WV), Oct. 3, 2002

"I will be voting to give the President of the
United States the authority to use force if
necessary to disarm Saddam Hussein because
I believe that a deadly arsenal of weapons of
mass destruction in his hands is a real and grave
threat to our security."- Sen. John F. Kerry
(D, MA), Oct. 9, 2002

"In the four years since the inspectors left,
intelligence reports show that Saddam Hussein
has worked to rebuild his chemical and biological
weapons stock, his missile delivery capability,
and his nuclear program. He has also given aid,
comfort, and sanctuary to terrorists, including al
Qaeda members .. It is clear, however, that if left
unchecked, Saddam Hussein will continue to
increase his capacity to wage biological and
chemical warfare, and will keep trying to develop
nuclear weapons."- Sen. Hillary Clinton
(D, NY), Oct 10, 2002

"Without question, we need to disarm Saddam
Hussein. He is a brutal, murderous dictator,
leading an oppressive regime ... He presents a
particularly grievous threat because he is so
consistently prone to miscalculation ... And now
he is miscalculating America's response to his
continued deceit and his consistent grasp for
weapons of mass destruction ... So the threat
of Saddam Hussein with weapons of mass
destruction is real..."- Sen. John F. Kerry
(D, MA), Jan. 23. 2003
