Some overdue business

First, if you haven't checked out the NRSC Pledge, please do so.

If the United States Senate passes a resolution, non-binding or otherwise, that criticizes the commitment of additional troops to Iraq that General Petraeus has asked for and that the president has pledged, and if the Senate does so after the testimony of General Petraeus on January 23 that such a resolution will be an encouragement to the enemy, I will not contribute to any Republican senator who voted for the resolution. Further, if any Republican senator who votes for such a resolution is a candidate for re-election in 2008, I will not contribute to the National Republican Senatorial Committee unless the Chairman of that Committee, Senator Ensign, commits in writing that none of the funds of the NRSC will go to support the re-election of any senator supporting the non-binding resolution.


Money talks, people. We need to fix the GOP, and letting them know that they won't get a damn cent of support from us unless they start listening to the people who elect them is a good start.

Second, I also recommend checking out the Victory Caucus.

We support victory in the war against radical Islamists. We supported the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq, and we believe victory is necessary in both countries for America's self-defense.

We believe that the radical regime in Iran, while not representative of the Iranian people, is a menace and that it cannot be allowed to obtain or build nuclear weapons.

We believe that Hezbollah is a terrorist organization that has killed hundreds of Americans and which waged war against Israel in violation of every law of war this past summer, and will do so again in the future.

We believe Israel is our ally and friend and deserves the full assistance of the United States in its battle with radical Islamists. We believe that Israel has repeatedly shown its willingness to negotiate a just and lasting peace, but that its enemies do not want peace, but the destruction of Israel.

We believe that the American military is the finest in the world and indeed in history, well led and superbly trained, and populated at every level by America's best and brightest.

We support the troops, and those organizations which assist the wounded in their recoveries and support the families of those who sacrificed everything.

We support leaders who support victory.


Victory. Period. Not "Peace with Honor" which is Democrat American Communist Party shorthand for "Wait until no one is looking, then run away and screw our allies over." Not "phased withdrawl". We withdraw when the enemy is good and gone. Not "redeployment". That's a horseshit phrase for "Cut and Run". As Emperor Misha puts it so eloquently:

They can end it, right fucking now, by getting down on their fucking knees and begging us to stop. And frankly, anything less than that is nothing short of a defeat for us, and I don’t handle defeats very well. They tend to piss me off, and I get decidedly unpleasant when I’m pissed off.

So don’t give me any blather about “acceptable outcomes”, because there IS only ONE acceptable outcome, and that is us winning. There is the winner, and then there are the “also rans”, and I don’t much like belonging to the latter, because they’re worthless pukes. If you’re some metrosexual loser who can live with that, I’d much appreciate it if you’d just find a nice gun and eat a bullet from it, because you’re only fucking up my gene pool by continuing to waste oxygen.

(.....)

I mean, do you idiots really think that you can just opt out of wars? OK, so I have to confess something here, and that is the fact that I thought, back during the Cold War, just as everybody else stupid enough to volunteer for fighting in it (I was one of those stupid people), that once that one was over, if it was ever to be over, there would be no wars ever again. Heck, we dreamed about that fantasy world all the time because none of us really wanted to die, and then all of a sudden it happened, thanks to the Gipper. The Cold War was over, and we could all go back to dancing with the fucking unicorns and living high and mighty off of the Peace Dividend, right?

Wrong.

As long as there’s somebody in this world who has something that somebody else wants, there’ll be wars.

It’s uncomfortable, but it’s the truth.

And the only way to keep that bastard from taking away what’s yours is to kick him in the fucking nuts until he loses interest in your possessions because the pain in his scrotum distracts him from chopping your empty head off.
