I've Found Some New Recruits!
A proud yellow elephant named Elizabeth Woods has created a petition urging President Bush to stay the course in Iraq and resist the tempation to withdraw troops prematurely. She argues that the U.S. military must remain in Iraq for as long as possible:
Many Americans understand the nature of the war we are fighting, but many don't. Those who don't are pressuring the Administration to “develop a strategy that can succeed in Iraq,” and demanding a “timetable” of our plans for Iraq and withdrawal of our troops. There are those who believe it is not so much a War on Terrorism as a War on Al Qaeda. But it isn't. We respectfully remind you that S.J.Res.23, which was enacted September 14, 2001 was broader than that, stating, "That the President is authorized to use all necessary and appropriate force against those nations, organizations, or persons he determines planned, authorized, committed, or aided the terrorist attacks that occurred on September 11, 2001, or harbored such organizations or persons, in order to prevent any future acts of international terrorism against the United States by such nations, organizations or persons."
. . . We understand that this war, like any war, can't be put on a timetable. Certain conditions need to be met before our troops can withdraw. While we urge you and our people in Iraq to move with all possible speed and efficiency, we also urge you to stay as long as it takes to get the job done right. We believe that military matters are best left in the hands of military experts, and therefore urge you to continue to heed the advice of the military on the ground and seek the advice of military experts, both inside and outside the Administration, and adjust the strategy accordingly. We urge you not to bow to pressure to commit to a strategy that leaves no room to adjust for changing circumstances.
Woods is a fervent supporter of endless war. Therefore, I would expect that she, along with her friends and family will rush off to Iraq to help kill terrorists and line the pockets of Bush-Cheney Inc. I applaud her for showing those liberal pansies that Orwellian perpetual warfare is the only respectable road for the United States of America.
