The Watch

The Watch is concerned about the increasing pressure towards feudalism in the United States from corporations, social regressives, warmongers, and the media. We also are concerned with future history concerning our current times, as non-truths which are “widely reported” become the basis for completely false narratives.

Stupid Republican Representative Watch II

Still catching up on all my most recent letters to my "representatives". This one I wrote in August to my stupid Republican representative, who absolutely LOVES Boosh's War and spouts all of the typical Republican talkingpoints about how great the war is going and how great the war is in general... I got a form letter back from him that spouted a lot of nonsense about how Iraq is critical to winning the "War on Terrah".

Dear Congressman XXXX:

This email is to formally ask you to support “cutting and running” in Iraq. I honestly don’t care what you call it, but you need to bring our troops home now.

Why anyone would trust the Bush administration to do anything, much less prosecute a war or give an honest appraisal of how that war is going, is beyond me. The Bush administration lied us into the war and the Bush administration has mismanaged the war so badly that it really couldn’t be any worse if they had planned it to catastrophically fail. With the war costing us about 100 US soldiers and $12 billion every month, I for one am not willing to see another soldier die or spend another dollar in a war that has absolutely nothing with the war on terror, has cost hundreds of thousands of Iraqis their lives, and has radicalized the world against us. Our involvement in World War II didn’t even last this long. President Bush recently compared Iraq with Vietnam; he is right, but in a way he did not intend. Iraq is a quagmire which we cannot win; we can throw as many troops and as much of our national resources at it as we want, but we cannot win because the Iraqi people do not want us there. Instead of focusing on Afghanistan (where the real fight is), we are wasting soldiers and resources in a civil war where both sides view us as targets. The Bush administration cannot be trusted to give an honest report to Congress or to be honest with the American people. Please get us out of Iraq now.

Please note that the American public is not going to be fooled by the current sleight-of-hand proposal being floated by the Bush administration – that of promising a limited troop reduction sometime possibly maybe perhaps in the next six months. I look forward to seeing you vote immediately against any more funding of the troops and will take great pleasure in voting against you in the next election if you don’t.
