Truman, FDR, JFK…they’re rolling in their graves now! The other day two of America’s finest soldiers from one of her finest units were captured by terrorists, tortured, killed, and butchered. Upon hearing confirming the news, the Democratic Party’s response was not to push forth a non-binding, Congressional resolution declaring America’s determination to bring such barbaric enemies to justice. Nope. They came out of the woodwork and started firing off plans to run from the fight. Make no mistake about it: there’s a fight going on in Iraq. Those two soldiers’ dismembered bodies should be more than enough proof! And whether it’s running away right now, or skipping away in 6 months, hop-skipping away in 7 months, or walking for 6 months, then slipping away after 7 more…NONE of their plans is a plan for either victory or honor or commitment. I have to wonder-as even some at the Democratic Leadership Council have-what would Harry S Truman do upon hearing the news of those two soldiers? Would he have stepped up to the microphone and told America that his plan for combating butchers is to get away from them as fast as possible? Would FDR have said, ‘The only thing we have to fear is….Iraqi insurgents. So, I’m ordering a withdrawl of all US forces starting immediately.” Upon hearing the news of the two soldiers’ privates being cut off and stuffed in their mouths would Kennedy (John F, not Teddy) have said, "Let every insurgent know, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and success of freedom. Oh, and the Navy will begin pulling out Marines from Basra on Monday." Today’s Democratic party leaders are demanding that there be a timeline for victory in Iraq, and today they tried to have poll-driven, election-crazed, power-hungry, lawyers on Capitol Hill determine the tactics and strategy of the war in Iraq rather than the generals. The generals are focused on objectives; The lawyers on a timeline. Please, can anyone tell find a historical example of a war fought and on a timeline? Did FDR present Congress with a timeline in after taking Africa in 1943? Did Truman provide a timeline right after the Inchon landings? Did JFK stick to a timeline for the Cuban Missile Crisis, and what if he had? There was a time when the leaders of the Democratic Party had courage-political courage. They dared to take on tough challenges regardless of popularity or initial ugliness. Today, the party has diminished into an opposition party with no strategy or platform other than opposition for opposition’s sake. Gone are the days when a Democrat would look at a calendar, see September 11th, and pledge, "When You See a Rattlesnake Poised to Strike, You Do Not Wait Until He Has Struck Before You Crush Him." (FDR, September 11, 1941). I’m still searching for a historical list of wars fought and won using timelines.
