I found myself getting fussed about the war and what to do, then Joe glowered and reminded me that Americans are impatient and I'm exhibiting the same signs. I huffed then took a nap. I woke up angry. Joe is correct.
I'm angry at the Democrats for using the war as a political means to regain power, the same with the press for assisting them. I'm angry at the sellouts among the Republicans, including Kristol--all those cowards who smelled a political problem and ran away or panicked and flailed around for some solution to end the war quickly when they know that's not possible.
The only people I'm not angry with are the real pacifists who do this anyway. Kucinich is Kucinich and always will be. A known quantity. Just as is Cindy Sheehan. It's all the wannabees that jump on the bandwagon when they think they can make ending Iraq into a political winner that disgust me.
Iraq will take time. Period. And all you phony 'but what about all those dead soldiers' whiners, come back when the casualties approach those in Vietnam.
And what makes me the most angry of all is the disregard of the real wishes of the Iraqi people. There are millions of Iraqis. There are only a few thousand using violence. And right there is the reason we should just take a deep breath, count to ten, then go back to watching our favorite tv shows and getting on with life.
Just like the Iraqis wish to do.
And leave the war to the professionals.
