The Amazing Deano

Howard Dean continues to be one of America's leading idiots. A dismal failure as a Presidential candidate, he is currently leading the Democrat party down the path of ruin. As if he does not have enough to do as a major fool, the Amazing Deano is now branching out as a military strategist.

In an interview posted on the WOAI web site
, Amazing Deano has declared that the US will not win in Iraq and has proposed a bug out plan only a leftist could love. The "idea that we're going to win the war in Iraq is an idea which is just plain wrong," according the Dean. He continued on say, "I've seen this before in my life. This is the same situation we had in Vietnam. Everybody then kept saying, 'just another year, just stay the course, we'll have a victory.' Well, we didn't have a victory, and this policy cost the lives of an additional 25,000 troops because we were too stubborn to recognize what was happening."

Well, folks, that's it. The Amazing Deano has shared his wisdom and we might just as well fold up the tents, pack up the troops and bug out immediately.

However, what the Amazing Deano fails to mention are the reasons that we ended up losing in Viet Nam. For the record, the military did not lose the war in Viet Nam. Our troops were quite capable of handling the enemy. Despite the claims of the media at the time, the vaunted Tet Offensive by the Viet Cong and North Vietnamese armies was a resounding victory for US military forces. An unbiased review of the record clearly shows that our military was superior. But we did end up bugging out.

Make no mistake about it, the defeat in Viet Nam was due to the interference of self-centered, pompous idiot politicians, each convinced that they knew more running a war than the professionals in the field. In this, both the White House and Congress equally share the blame. But did the politicians learn this lesson? Apparently not, or at least not the Amazing Deano and his pack of liberal ninnies.

By law, the military of the United States reports to the civilian government. This is how it should be. But once the civilian government has committed our forces to battle, the task of winning should be the exclusive provence of those professionals trained to fight and not a bunch of pampered politicians sitting by their warm fires back home.

Time and again, interference with the conduct of a war has needlessly cost lives. The American Civil War should have been won within two years but political wrangling in Washington DC managed to stretch the death and destruction out for a full five years. Viet Nam was a repeat of the very same mistake and now, if idiots such as Howard Dean have their way, so will the Iraq war.

Hopefully, the American people are intelligent enough to see the stupidity of allowing politicians such as Dean to determine how wars are fought. After all it is our sons and daughters who are doing the fighting and dying and it is our duty to let the politicians know that we do not any more interference from idiots safe within the Washington DC Beltway.
