Bureaucrats kill our soldiers

Congress' defeatist bill to set a date for withdrawal from Iraq is just the latest of a long line of bureaucracy which has, at the minimum, been a source of irritant to our soldiers and, at worst, a threat to our soldiers' lives. This bill increases the morale and extends the willingness of our enemies to fight. Congress will directly cause more deaths than necessary by their stupid and useless action. It is useless because it won't change the course of the war on our side, but it does make them look good to their anti-war constituents who they believe represent the majority of their voters. So I guess it is useful for their political careers - at the cost of US and Iraqi lives.

300 isn't a political movie and yet the left has poured politics into it. I can only assume that having the bravery and conviction to fight evil to one's death for others is threatening to them for some reason. This would explain why they ignore our soldiers' deaths as sacrifices for us. I have had several left wing posters tell me straight out that they don't see the soldiers as sacrificing for them:

"What's your favourite movie?

Someday soon, you may ask a new acquaintance that question, and just maybe -- because it takes all kinds -- your new friend will reply, "My favourite movie is 300."

If this happens, back away slowly. Your new friend probably kills cats for fun. Worse -- your new friend may be George W. Bush. Director Zack Snyder's new dramatization of the epic Spartan stand at Thermopylae will probably go down real well at the White House, and wherever disturbed young people massacre hundreds in violent video games. Others should exercise discretion."
