Olbermann’s Insanity

May 15, 2008

Tonight, Keith Olbermann on his ‘show’ on MSNBC took the opportunity to offer another ‘special’ comment to the nation – actually, the few hundred thousand viewers of his programme. Most of his special comments take the form of a raging attack on President Bush and tend to side with the Jihadists and any other anti-American group/country/individuals. Today’s effort was no exception.

Olbermann criticised American involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan, denouncing the American-led Coalition as being “cold-blooded” killers and accusing Americans of being war criminals. He felt President Bush was being dishonest when he mentioned that the Jihadists would prefer a Democrat as President – this is not speculation, it is clearly true. The Dems want to retreat and wave the white flag of surrender… both candidates have promised they will pull out the troops as soon as they become President. Olbermann was incensed at the idea that the extremists might attack the United States again – he seems to have fallen for the wishy-washy rhetoric of those living in the liberal bubble. That is, America is only attacked becasue of Bush’s policies. In his minute mind, if we pull out of Iraq and stop attacking the terrorists, they will love us and never harm Western civilisation again. Yes, Keith, and the Big Bad Wolf lived happily ever after with Little Red Riding Hood.

Olbermann accuses Bush of lying but in almost the same breath labels John McCain as Bush’s twin – clearly disregarding what his own cable network has been broadcasting for the past 7 years… McCain’s displeasure with Rumsfeld and certain planks of the Bush policies.

Olbermann, in his selfish little world, surrounded by yes-people, is guilty of many of the charges he levels at Bush, most of which involve dishonesty. He believes he knows what’s best for the American voter and so he ignores the extremist views of Barack and Michelle Obama, and their confidants, he belittles Hillary Clinton’s triumphs against the O-man, and he treats McCain with contempt. Olbermann lost the plot months ago. He seems to blame America for the world’s woes. We all know who he wants to win in the war on terror – it’s not the good guys.

Victory in Iraq

March 20, 2008

On the fifth anniversary of the start of the war in Iraq, President George W Bush gave a rousing and inspiring speech in defence of the war, laying out clearly, once again, the reasons for going to war and, more importantly at this moment in time, the reasons for continuing the fight against the forces of extremism.

The current successes in Iraq, owing much to John McCain’s surge theories, are grounds for hope that victory will come. Yet, at this crucial stage in the war, when the Coalition forces have the upper hand, some are calling for retreat and surrender. One of the few clear planks in Barack Obama’s otherwise virtually empty manifesto is to surrender in Iraq and leave the extremists celebrating victory over the United States and its Allies. Bush refers to politicians such as Obama in today’s speech, “The successes we are seeing in Iraq are undeniable — yet some in Washington still call for retreat.”

Obama likes to claim that the so-called experience of John McCain and Hillary Clinton led them to support an unjust war while his ‘better judgement’ made him oppose the war from the outset. Obama’s judgement conveniently ignores key facts about Saddam Hussein’s regime. Facts that Bush highlighted in today’s speech…

“Because we acted, Saddam Hussein no longer fills fields with the remains of innocent men, women and children. Because we acted, Saddam’s torture chambers and rape rooms and children’s prisons have been closed for good. Because we acted, Saddam’s regime is no longer invading its neighbors or attacking them with chemical weapons and ballistic missiles. Because we acted, Saddam’s regime is no longer paying the families of suicide bombers in the Holy Land. Because we acted, Saddam’s regime is no longer shooting at American and British aircraft patrolling the no-fly zones and defying the will of the United Nations. Because we acted, the world is better and United States of America is safer.”

Barack Obama’s judgement would have allowed Saddam Hussein to continue to act against the interests of the free world. Obama lives in the liberal bubble, along with many in the media and many Democrats in general – a bubble that seems to be cut off from the real world and one that will be burst when the next attack on the USA occurs. These bubble-inhabitants deny that 9/11 changed the world and appear oblivious to the danger that will arise if Coalition forces retreat from the battle with extremists in the Middle East.

Obama’s willingness to accept defeat in Iraq, when, to any strategist with any foresight, victory for the USA is the only acceptable outcome for the safety of the US and the free world, coupled with his ongoing support for his racist, America-hating pastor, Rev. Wright, will only weaken his hand as a candidate for the Presidency of the United States. the war may not be popular but it is essential.

On voting day, most Americans will realise that it will not be wise for them to elect a President who is happy to lead his country in retreat in the face of terror. On the contrary, the majority of Americans will vote for a Commander-in-Chief who will stand firm when confronted with extremists and who recognizes that we are in a battle for our civilisation. Al Qaeda is on the run and McCain is the man to chase them “to the gates of Hell.”

McCain realises, as Bush mentioned today, that no outcome except victory is acceptable in the war against the extremists.

President Bush concluded in his speech to military at the Pentagon, “The battle in Iraq is noble, it is necessary, and it is just. And with your courage, the battle in Iraq will end in victory.” Obama’s views undermine that war effort and give encouragement to the enemy. McCain, on the other hand, will support the efforts our troops are making, and will lead America and the Coalition towards a victory many on the left feel is impossible.
