Yellow Donkeys? No, the Truman Project

Operation Yellow Elephant salutes the Truman Project, an initiative by the loyal opposition to support our military.

Don't forget: If you support international (i.e., U.S. military) action overseas, you must also support our military, and our servicemembers, who make it possible. This includes ROTC on as many American campuses as needed.

You certainly should oppose specific details, such as "Don't Ask, Don't Tell," without opposing our entire military.

In fact, it is your civic duty to do so.

UPDATE: This also means you, former Clinton Administration officials Susan E. Rice and Anthony Lake, as well as Rep. Donald Payne (D-NJ). Money quote:

The real question is this: Will we use force to save Africans in Darfur as we did to save Europeans in Kosovo?

The key is "we." Don't be an Anthony Mantova or a Geoff Smock. Although currently part of the loyal opposition, if you support U.S. military action overseas, you have an obligation to encourage real Americans to Be A Man! Enlist!

If you support international action overseas then ENLIST YOU CHICKENS! Your body in a uniform means a whole lot more than your sniveling excuses as to why you won't serve. Yes, they are Yellow Donkeys. It is sad you have chosen to go partisan.

anonymous-

We have urged those who support international (i.e., U.S. military) action in, say, Darfur, to enhance their credibility as you have suggested.

And we will continue to do so.

But don't forget. The loyal opposition is not running our country; the American people have elected our governing party to do so. This is not partisanship.

The buck must stop there.

Truman Project - funny. My dad who is a Korean War veteran remembers that when the Marines were fighting their way out of the Chosin Reservoir in sub zero temperatures, newspapers were reporting that Harry Truman was on vacation in Key West Florida.

Lord knows, George W. Bush never took a vacation.
