I Dare Any American to Name a Single Bush or Republican National Security Success
I Dare Any American to Name a Single Bush or Republican National Security Success...Just One
A. Alexander, August 18th, 2006
Republicans are masters at creating a political perception that is entirely divorced from reality. On no other issue is this highlighted more clearly than regarding national security. What is more incredible still, is that the American people buy into these Republican myths regardless of what their own senses tell them.

Somewhere in the national security formula must be a variable called competence. How is it possible for a president or party to keep the nation secure, if their strategy has resulted in a string of one failure followed by another? Bush and Republicans began the war in Afghanistan, completed half the job, pulled out most of the military resources, and have done virtually nothing as that country slips back into the hands of al Qaeda and the Taliban. A recent report stated, in no uncertain terms, that the Bush-backed strategy for combating an Islamist insurrection in Pakistan has failed 'badly'. The Bush administration's attempts at preventing Somalia from falling to Taliban-like Islamists, has also failed. All this, of course, says nothing about the complete and utter disaster known as Iraq.

Iraq was, is, and will be a Bush and Republican operation. They wanted the war, made up out of thin air the evidence to get the war, fired any General who tried to tell them their post-invasion force was too small to secure the country, and steadfastly refused to alter their policy. Contrary to altering their march toward failure, they've insisted we must 'stay the course'. Further, due to our being trapped in Iraq, Iran has begun developing nuclear weapons and North Korea has actually quadrupled the number of nuclear weapons in their arsenal.

Bush and Republicans have not succeeded in a single national security-related endeavor. Indeed, everything they've done has made America less safe. That other nations maintain a healthy fear of our military might is vital to national security but, too, just as important is that world leaders respect American diplomacy and our leadership. Today, few nations take seriously our threat of force because they know we are bogged down in Iraq. Both North Korea and Iran have made a hobby of thumbing their noses at Bush's threats of force. And it would require a determined Sherlock Holmes-like detective to discover many global leaders who respect either America's diplomatic efforts, or our leadership.

That the United States has lost all respect within the international community cannot be denied. It is humiliating enough that a ranking member of the British government called the President of the United States 'crap', but it is all the more embarrassing and telling when the Chinese envoy tells the United States to 'shut up'.

'''It's better for the U.S. to shut up,' Sha said. 'Keep quiet. It's much, much better.'''

"It is better for the U.S. to shut up"? The President of the United States is "crap"? In what parallel universe do the people of America view the sum total of Bush and Republican national security failures and hear world leaders uttering such disrespectful remarks and still, they arrive at the conclusion that Republicans are strong on national security? For the love of all things good and merciful, on whose watch did 9/11 occur? When it comes to the myth that Republicans are "strong" on national security, what will it take for the American people to realize they've been sold a bill of goods?

I challenge any American to name a single instance relating to national security, where either Bush or the Republican Party has been a success. Just one example of success...just one!

A single Bush success:

He appointed judges that will overturn Roe vs Wade, effectively wiping abortion out of our society.

A huge success, the one he will be remembered for later.

What do you think of when you remember ABRAHAM LINCOLN?

That is right, the Emancipation Proclamation, freeing of slaves.

So it will be with Bush.

The color coded scheme of 'awareness' that Ashcroft crayoned for the nation and the world was "artful politics" reminiscent of Picasso and the Spanish Civil War in the 30's.

We have lost our Bill of Rights, the Constitution has been reduced to a "God damn piece of paper," and dual citizen Israelis control our Foreign Policy.

The pogrom towards the NWO has been a resounding success thanks to Bush!!

Re abortion - do you condone the use of the "morning after pill" - as far as I know it is available on prescription in the US is it not. So is that not "abortion"?

I'm not an American, but Bush has... er...

Well, he allegedly managed to cover up major 9/11-related governmental incompetencies with the 9/11 Commission. I suppose his administration would celebrate that as a national security success, albeit behind closed (and well-guarded) doors.

That is right, the Emancipation Proclamation, freeing of slaves.
 Quoting: Kay 72054


It's not very becomming to spread propaganada and misinformation.

The Emancipation Proclamation was a very cleverly worded draft to be used as propaganda to bring the Abolitionists into the fold.

As you know, Abolitionist groups helped young men evade the draft so that they didn't get slaughtered during Lincoln's illegal war "to preserve this Union."

The text reads as follows:

"That on the first day of January, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three, all persons held as slaves within any State or designated part of a State, the people whereof shall then be in rebellion against the United States, shall be then, thenceforward, and forever free; and the Executive Government of the United States, including the military and naval authority thereof, will recognize and maintain the freedom of such persons, and will do no act or acts to repress such persons, or any of them, in any efforts they may make for their actual freedom.

"That the Executive will, on the first day of January aforesaid, by proclamation, designate the States and parts of States, if any, in which the people thereof, respectively, shall then be in rebellion against the United States; and the fact that any State, or the people thereof, shall on that day be, in good faith, represented in the Congress of the United States by members chosen thereto at elections wherein a majority of the qualified voters of such State shall have participated, shall, in the absence of strong countervailing testimony, be deemed conclusive evidence that such State, and the people thereof, are not then in rebellion against the United States."
 Quoting: Emancipation Proclamation


For those of you who were educated by liberals who spent more time explaining why Cathy has two mommies and why Timmy's daddy always has his hands down his other daddy's pants, instead of grammar, reading and writing, the key to the text is here:

all persons held as slaves within any State or designated part of a State, the people whereof shall then be in rebellion against the United States, shall be then, thenceforward, and forever free;
 Quoting: Key to Text


Question: How many slaves in the four slave states that remained loyal to the Union were freed?

Answer: Zero

Why? Because those states were not "in rebellion." It is an undisputed historical fact that not a single slave from any of the four slave states were set free as a result of the "Emancipation Proclamation."

This phraseology was integral to the proclamation to keep the four slave states from suddenly changing side in the middle of the conflict, which would have been devastating to the Union.

In fact, although the proclamation was written in 1862, Lincoln tactically waited until a Union victory was achieved before delivering his message, lest it be lost on the Abolotionists and other northern groups who were opposed to the war.

The Emancipation Proclamation had no affect on those territories or regions in the Confederacy which were under Union control. Because they were under Union control, they were not deemed to be "in rebellion" and thus no slaves were freed, and that is also an undisputed historical fact.

With respect to the Confederacy, there was not then, nor is there now, any federal law that prohibits a State from ceceding from the Union.

Likewise, there is nothing in the US Constitution that prohibits a State from ceceding from the Union.

Accordingly, the Confederacy was an independent country not subject to the laws of the Union, and therefore, the Emancipation Proclamation had no legal effect and was not enforceable.
