A Perfect Gift for Your Favorite Anti-War Activist

This post is purple for a reason. If you don't know why, you should be banned from voting...for life.

Sometimes it is helpful to try to lure the flys in with some honey before you swat them. Give your favorite anti-war activist some honey, and maybe their mouths will be too busy to undermine the troops and embolden the enemy!

What could this perfect gift be?
Iraqi dinars!

They are dirt cheap. The last time I checked, they were 7 millionths of ONE cent. You can buy 250,000 dinars for less than $200 in 25,000 dinar denominations. That means that you can send ten, 25,000 dinar notes (at $20 each). That's cheap folks.

Before the first gulf war, the dinar was worth over four bucks. If the dinar gets up to just fifty cents, your favorite activist will be able to stuff their stupid mouth with caviar and Dom.

Plumber, since when is it stupid to stand up for what you believe in? There are many who believe that beginning the war in Iraq was too hasty, suspiscious, wrong. I'm one of them. So, what... now it is wrong for me to stick with my beliefs? What would you prefer, that I be a coward, and just lay low, go along with a decision I believe with all my heart was a bad one?

Just because our government chooses to go to war anyway, not caring about the many who oppose it... what? We're just supposed to sit tight, wave a flag and say "yeah, we're at war!"?

Just like most other people who oppose the Iraq war, I support our troops, because they can't help having to go, they are only following orders, doing their job. And no matter what I think of the war, I think they are hero's for doing what they are told on behalf of our country.

Are you one of those who truly thinks that if a person opposes the war, we must then oppose the good men and women willing to lay down their lives?

You oppose taxes and immigrants. I oppose this war. What's the difference? If I am stupid for believing in something strongly enough to speak out... are you stupid for the same reasons?

What do anti-war activists hope to accomplish with incessant protesting? To get us out of Iraq ASAP, regardless of the consequences to Iraq, our troops, and the War on Terrorism? Could it be for selfish, and crass political reasons? Both? Others?

Do you think that your spoken opinion is more important than the moral of our troops? Did Tokyo Rose demoralize our troops by exercising "freedom of speech"? My uncle (who actually listened to her) says yes. Yet, there is very little difference between her rhetoric and that of the Dimocratic leadership.

When Al Jazerra gives more space to Dean, Kerry, Durbin, and Murtha, than they give to Rumsfeld, Bush, and Rice...do you think this emboldens the enemy? When the MSM does this, does this demoralize the U.S. citizenry?

So, there we have it. The rhetoric of the current Dimocratic leadership demoralizes the troops and emboldens the enemy. I don't question their patriotism, I openly claim that they have none.

I've said it before, I don't give a damn about Bush or the GOP. In fact, I'm willing to believe that we were manipulated into a "War on Terrorism". It's irrelevant now that troops are in harms way. I only care about the troops and their ability to complete their mission with as few injuries as possible. The Dimocratic leadership cares only about Bush and the GOP. Every casuality and death in Iraq (not Afganistan) is viewed as potential propaganda to use against this administration.

What is the favorite anti-war chant? Bush lied, people died. Bush this, Bush that. What positive effect does this have on the U.S. public and our troops?

Would you walk up to a person at the mall, point to their face, and say, "That is the biggest zit I've ever seen!"? How does this person feel about being the object of you exercising your First Amendment rights? Would he have been better off had you said nothing at all? What does the lady selling zit cream think about it? Is a zit more or less important than war?

The time for vocal opposition is over. Now it just makes things worse. Hiding behind the First Amendment won't change this fact.

As you are now armed with this knowledge, you can make the informed choice of demoralizing the troops, emboldening the enemy and thus prolonging the war...or not.

If you choose the former, I will have no choice but to view you with contempt.

BTW, The difference between me voicing my opinion on taxes and immigration, and the current verbalizing of the anti-war movement, is that my opinions won't get anybody killed.

About the post...

If you owned a $25,000 dinar note that cost you about twenty dollars, and the potential, if everything goes OK, is that that note is worth thousands of dollars within a decade, would you be more careful with your rhetoric?

Would you be more likely to trust the advice of military commanders on the ground in Iraq, than an armchair general in the U.S. Senate?

I own ten of these notes. I want Iraq to be very prosperous. I want them to be the shining beacon of liberty and prosperity in the Middle East. I want it expedited.

I view the anti-war movement as an impediment because a successful Iraq isn't viewed by them as an American success or an Iraqi success. It is viewed by them as a Bush success and therefore something to be opposed.

I've never even held foreign money in my hand, much less purchased any for investment.

The site looks interesting. I'm thinking about buying some, but not to give away.

Plumber, for me (and many others) it is not about getting out of Iraq ASAP - once we started the war, we were in it for the long haul. Whether it was based on truths or lies, it was started. Unless we wanted to leave the Iraqi's high and dry like Bush Sr. did.

But I disagree that simply stating opposition to the war hurts our troops. And since I don't want to write a book, I won't put all the details of why. Suffice it to say, we disagree on this point.

Are SOME extremist anti-war activists screaming too loud and hurting our troops in the process? Yes. But there are extremists are on both sides of every issue, hurting all sorts of different things. They will always be around as long as the earth is rotating and people are alive.

What you do not seem to acknowledge is that there is a large number of people who do not support the war and are not afraid to tell you as such, because to them (me) it would be like people in Germany rooting for Hitler, even knowing he was wrong. OK, I know that is pretty extreme, but on the other hand - some of them DID do that. Out of fear, patriotism, stupidity, whatever. But I digress. My point is that to us, it would be just WRONG to wave the flag and unquestioningly support the war.

With that said, I do agree that even those of us who oppose the war must choose our words carefully. And I further acknowledge some people don't do that.

Please don't confuse the extremist anti-war activists with the other group - those of us who fundamentally oppose the war, but try very hard to state it in a way that doesn't diminish our troops, who have no choice but the fight it.

Holly,

I don't expect you to support the war.

Did you read UN Resolution 1441 and its companion Resolutions? It makes it very clear the consequences of non-compliance.

Bush is being praised by the Europeans for his "hands-off" approach to Iran. Bush said to the Europeans, "You think you can do it better, well here's your shot".

After the leftist approach fails, and it will, who is going to keep Israel from being wiped off the map? The U.N.? NATO? The French or Germans?

How much do you trust Iranian prez Amadinejad (I think that's how you spell it)?
