A very worthy read Gerard...
Yes, a very worthy read, sad to read, but true.
I did miss your commentary and observations during your hiatus last year. But if you went on hiatus now, I believe I would suffer real grief. You're on fire, and I hope many more in the blogworld are being attracted to the light you're throwing off.Posted by Levans at February 4, 2005 2:19 PM
I think Gerard should install a Paypal button, he certainly deserves a hell of a lot more than Excitable Andrew for work like this and the post immediately before. Thanks G-Man!Posted by Uncle Mikey at February 4, 2005 5:22 PM
Instead of the ignominy of defeat that it encapsulated, instead of the death camps and killing fields that it spawned in Vietnam, Thailand, and Cambodia, the Fall of Saigon is the Reid-Kerry-Kennedy's "finest hour.
You left out Carter.
In 1979, the U.S. Navy was ordered not to pick up "boat people". So we steamed along Viet Nam's coast and into the mouth of the Malacca Straits, passing boats loaded with people, pathetically holding up signs asking for rescue. Refugees began punching holes in their boats to force the issue.Posted by P.A. Breault at February 4, 2005 5:56 PM
Great piece. These poor liberals, they have chosen to dig faster and faster as history passes them by. I truly look forward to 2006 to see how many more of them we can pick off in the Senate. The elections in Iraq were the fifth major event that will shake the middle east from its foundation. It started with Sept 11, the the fall of the Taliban, then the fall of Saddam, then the elections in Afghanistan, now these elections in Iraq, and next we will see the fall of the Mullahs in Iran. But we must not forget the re-elections of a great man this past Nov.Posted by op at February 4, 2005 6:48 PM

A harsh but accurate portrait of the Democratic Party leadership. Forcefully written. I agree one hundred percent.Posted by Iam at February 5, 2005 8:50 PM
No, Teddy Kennedy was undiagnosed as having Down Syndrome, so that's why he was let in, and Reid publicly stated that he didn't like the 'cut' of his vest, and so left it at home, while Kerry has already made clear his nuanced support of those who vote FOR freedom, before they vote AGAINST it...Posted by Carridine at February 5, 2005 8:57 PM
Excellent post. My sentiments exactly. I particularly like the comparison between the eldest brother's words and his youngest brother's words. From Jack to Ted, how the mighty have fallen.

Exit strategy... exit strategy... HMPH!
Don't those idiots understand that if the US government published an "exit strategy" that the enemy would simply go underground and wait it out? As soon as the conditions for "exit" applied, they'd come out and start raising havoc again as soon as the coast was clear.
The only proper "exit strtegy" is to destroy the enemy.

Add Laos, also.
