Incredipete the Liberal Democrat, Part 1

I’ve decided that this site needs some balance, politically speaking, so today I’m going to begin a series of entries where I will remove my current personality and ideology and insert something (much inferior) completely the opposite. To be perfectly honest, I always enjoyed debating people who were able to argue either side, even if their heart wasn’t in it. So, here we go onto part one of Incredipete the Liberal Democrat.

The Iraq War

Who in American thinks the Iraq war is a good thing? Is there one person left (aside from George W. Bush) who is still gung-ho about this insane expedition?

Let’s go back in time, and think about our history as “the police of the world.” Korea. Not our finest hour. We lost 36,576 men in Korea. And why? Because we lacked resolve and we lacked an understanding of who we were fighting. The Koreans were fighting for their home land, and they had no intention of leaving or giving up. It was beat us or die trying. We didn’t share their commitment, because it wasn’t our land.

Then it was on to Vietnam. 58,226 Americans lost their lives in Vietnam. For what? Again, we lacked the resolve to finish the job, and our soldiers paid the price. We also suffered the hatred of many other countries who objected to our interference there.

Why do we lack resolve to win our wars? Is it because we refuse to call them wars? Or is it because we are fighting an enemy where we don’t understand WHY they are an enemy? I believe it’s the latter.

Why is Iraq our enemy? Is it oil? Is it about bringing democracy to another country? In the beginning, it was because they had “weapons of mass destruction” yet we have found no evidence of such weapons, and the story of why we’re there has changed completely. Think about the many stories we’ve heard over the past 4 years. We’re going in because Iraq harbors terrorists. We’re going in because Iraq has WMDs. We’re going in because we want to liberate the Iraqi people. We’re going in to get a democratic foothold in the Middle East.

Are we kidding? The Middle East doesn’t want to be democratic. They are a Muslim country who teaches submission… not freedom. Democracy will never take hold in a Muslim country, and it’s foolish for us to sacrifice American soldiers to that end.

Iraq didn’t give us 9-11. Our own interfering foreign policy brough 9-11 upon us, and we deserved what we got. Our role in the world should be to bring medicine, food, education, and infrastructure to poor countries, not blow them up. Our foreign aid consists of bombs, not bread. Until we realize that we cannot further freedom by putting countries in a chokehold, we will continue to suffer terrorist attacks, and will continue watching our American soldiers die for a lost cause.

    Reading these words on your page didn’t quite compute in my head. I don’t know how I feel about Incredipete The Liberal.

    Hmmm… I think maybe this is all a ploy. You really want to be more liberal, but you’re afraid to admit it, because you’re afraid your Jesus-loving neo-con readers will be offended (ok, maybe they’re not quite so ultra-conservative, but whatever). It’s ok, Incredipete. You can admit it. We’re your friends.

    Say it with me: Hilary in 2008!! WOO!

    Hahahahaha. Even I won’t say that.

    Were you wearing your pink shirt when you wrote this? and has anybody seen/heard of Andy in the past few months?

    I emailed Andy a couple of weeks ago, and he is still living, although he acknowledges that he is a complete slacker and should be horsewhipped.
