Democrats Push Bush to Start New, More Popular War

by Scott Ott for ScrappleFace · 13 Comments · · Print This Story Print This Story

(2007-11-19) — After another Democrat attempt to pull U.S. troops from Iraq collapsed in the Senate late last week, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-CA, and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-NV, today announced a tactical shift designed to force President George Bush to end the war which polls show is unpopular with the American people.

“We call on President Bush to start a popular war,” the two Congressional leaders said in a joint news release. “The American people want a war they can feel good about again, like they do when they watch old movies about World War II.”

Sen. Reid and Rep. Pelosi said they would let the commander in chief decide whom to attack, as long as he asked Congress for a declaration of war, and ensured that the enemy met conditions they called “Recipe for a Popular War.”

The country the U.S. attacks, the Democrat leaders said, should be one that…
1) poses a major threat to world peace,
2) has a track record of aggressively exerting preemptive military power abroad,
3) is ruled by a religious zealot who makes decisions without regard to the will of the people,
4) has an essentially powerless legislature often overruled by the nation’s military commander,
5) demonstrably possesses, and has a history of detonating, nuclear weapons, and
6) has a vast global espionage network that even spies on its own people.

The Democrat lawmakers said once the president declares war against such an enemy, Defense Department funds could be shifted from Iraq to the more popular war, and troops stationed in Iraq could be redeployed to the new battlefront.

    I guess they want us to militarily attack ourselves. Makes sense, as they’ve been doing it politically for decades now. Well… makes sense if you’re a Democrat.

    BTW, very clever. Are you getting the daily marching orders from, Dailykos, and It sure sounds like it sometimes. The only difference is that your stories are parodies and their’s… well, aren’t. As boberin would say, “Good stuff.”

    egospeak #3,
    Yeah, that was my first thought too. Harry “We lost the war” Reid and Nancy “Pull-out-see” want us to fight a war with the U.S. … Well, I guess the Dems are the covert saboteurs that go in ahead of the troops, eh?

    Reality TV : Peoples’ Choice American War Machine.
    Vote for the next country to be on the attack list by dialing 911 on your cell. For those that don’t get it, it’s satire do not dial 911 and expect to VOTE!

    Top 5 newest war fronts closer to home are: Venezuela, Brazil, Mexico, Cuba and Canada. Since we really fight for oil and the right to pay a $100 a barrel. If we get our way, Chavez has promised to let us pay $200 a barrel.

    The dems need to declare war on typhoons. Look how many innocent people one killed in a single day. 3000 and counting. Wait a minute, maybe Al Gore can tie it into global warming because of all the hot air coming out of the Senate.

    The U.S. doesn’t fit even half those requirements, but if we could ge the Democrat Party declared a country, well, we just might have us a show, folks.

    gafisher - I’ve written on this before - going back to 1776 - the sitution had become intolorable.
    “In Congress, July 4, 1776

    The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America

    When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to….”

    “Intolorable” still means the same today as it did then. The Socialist/Communists are bent on destroying The USA (as we’ve known it) and reshaping it into their own image.

    Only instead of a modern version of the Revolutionary War - this will be a modern version of the Civil War.

    One doesn’t have to be a Christian to be a Conservative but as a point of fact, most Conservatives are Christians. It will eventually come down to brother against brother, father against son, etc.

    Matt. 10:34 Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.
    Matt. 10:35 For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.
    Matt. 10:36 And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household.

    The current parties will cease to exist, It will assuredly be Conservatives vs Liberals (aka Socialist/Communists)

    I don’t, by any stretch of the immagination, pretend to be a prophet but this is how I see it shaping up. Fortunately for us, they are so “anti-gun” that we will be better armed than they are.

    At my age (70) I’ll probably be long gone before this takes place or Jesus will have returned and all of this will become irrelevant.

    Re - my last post #10


    “The gun has been called the great equalizer, meaning that a small person with a gun is equal to a large person, but it is a great equalizer in another way, too. It insures that the people are the equal of their government whenever that government forgets that it is servant and not master of the governed. When the British forgot that they got a revolution. And, as a result, we Americans got a Constitution; a Constitution that, as those who wrote it were determined, would keep men free. If we give up part of that Constitution we give up part of our freedom and increase the chance that we will lose it all. I am not ready to take that risk. I believe that the right of the citizen to keep and bear arms must not be infringed if liberty in America is to survive.” —Ronald Reagan

    Just experimented to see if there is a website titled “democratunderground.comn”.

    Nope. The Democrat party has it rigged to add an “ic” and redirect. Oh well, at least it costs them a few cents a month that can’t be routed through China to Her Thighness!

    Also tried “” and found it either does not exist or has been somehow made unavailable. Tempting, though, to register it and set up a counter-propaganda site.

    Continuing the thought….

    Never knew registering a domain was so easy. Especially with a sale…three for little more than the price of one! .com, .org, .info

    Now, like Al Capp once said:

    “Now that ya got ‘em organized, what in hell are ya gonna do with ‘em?”

    But the only war the dems would support would be the one against conservatives.
