For This Date 11, Month 9, remember to also take time to thank and
support our troops, who deport jihadists to Hell for all time. On the Tenth Anniversary of the 9-11 Attack, we owe our greatest thanks to our troops who are serving, who have served, who are wounded and who died and also to their families.
After thanking our troops and their families, we should thank those who exhibited the political courage in leading and supporting our troops in their mission to keep the jihadists off-balance and on the defensive while our troops and special forces hunt them down: George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Condi Rice, Colin Powell, John McCain, Joe Lieberman, special forces who captured Saddam Hussein, special forces who killed Usama bin Laden, our intelligence operatives (including interrogators), and many more. We should also remember that we should also thank those in the foregoing list that Qadaffi gave up his nuclear-weapons program shortly after our troops captured Saddam Hussein.
Today, Date 11, Month 9, remember to also take time to thank and
support our troops, who deport jihadists to Hell for all time.
It's true that Saddam didn't plan the
Nine-One-One hit on our land, and likewise it's plain attacks on those planes were missions al Qaeda
had planned. Our forces we rightly dispatched to Afghans' domains to dispatch al Qaeda,
foremost, and Taliban hosts, for launching on us such attack.
That help, not resistance, be
gleaned for forces we sent to the scene 'twas rightly perceived for warlords to be our allies, our
force must be lean.
And meanwhile, the world knew Saddam, who harbored desires for a Bomb, consistently lied in claims
he'd complied with truce-terms imposed on Saddam. Though Wilson, the husband of Plame,
proclaimed that "Saddam hadn't made a yellow-cake 'buy,'" he falsely implied Saddam hadn't
tried as Bush claimed.
So Dubya correctly perceived the danger if we were to leave Saddam
un-inspected, and so he elected demands that inspections proceed. However, Saddam sternly ordered inspectors to not cross his border 'til
Dubya said "Now" and put three-hundred thousand American troops on his
The critics of Dubya maintained as long as inspectors remained inside Saddam's borders
that Bush shouldn't order our forces to topple Hussein. However, what critics ignore is absent our keeping such force positioned with orders along Saddam's
borders, inspectors he'd oust as before.
And then, in such case, he'd be free again to make WMD's,
and thus he'd by now again be endowed with weapons called "WMD's." And, further, to
counter Iran's attempts to develop a Bomb, he surely would have resumed what he'd had: A
program for making a Bomb.
Though Bush-critics argued that "sanctions" were means for preventing such actions, such
claims are shown wrong by Kim Il Jung's Bomb despite strong enforcement of "sanctions."
Since Dubya was right to conclude that "sanctions" would never preclude design of a Bomb
controlled by Saddam, reality's options were two:
ways by which to prevent
getting Bombs he'd invent? Inspections
for Saddam we'd prevent.
Saddam's prior ejection of experts deployed for inspections 'til Dubya deployed a quite-massive
force next-door for a "yes" to inspections? Without such force being maintained, no
doubt the next move by Hussein would be the ejection of expert inspections and back to Square One
If faith in inspections we'd placed, the permanent burden we'd face would thus mean, of course,
maintaining such force of three-hundred-thousand in place. (Remember the motives explained
by those flying Nine-One-One planes? 'Twas 'cause we'd deployed a token-sized force
"in Arabic lands," they proclaimed.) And even if we had maintained a large
enough force to constrain Saddam to permit inspections, his tricks could still fool inspectors again.
(Remember in One-Nine-Nine-Four inspectors proclaimed that "No more remained of
Saddam's designs for a Bomb," but then learned by luck he had
more? Proclaiming his Bomb-works they'd closed, they learned they'd been duped by his pose
when one of his kin said "Bomb-work had been continued right under their nose.")And further, few nations were willing to honor the
sanctions for chilling the search by Saddam for stuff to make Bombs from those who for him would be
The risks from "inspections maintained" meant one other option remained: Ensuring
"no Bomb" meant toppling Saddam with boots on the ground of Hussein.
Though errors in hindsight appeared: The WMD's that we feared were either destroyed or
elsewhere deployed and never in battle appeared. And errors in hindsight appeared on how to
best handle the fears and grudges arising from ethnic despising suppressed in Saddam Hussein's
That chaos thereafter transpired when thugs from al Qaeda lit fires of hatred that bore resemblance
to war is not proof we're wrongly inspired. Instead, what
thereafter transpired as chaos in which we are mired is proof that the job is tougher but not a job
that was wrongly "conspired." Our mission remains just as "just" as most
would concede if our "bust" of Sǎddam's regime was perfectly schemed
for drinking from liberty's cup.
If Bush were instead to have heeded the chant, "Ousting Sǎddam's not
needed," it's likely Saddam would now have a Bomb, and what would Bush-critics be pleading?
They'd now impugn Bush 43 for "letting" Iraqis succeed in building a nuke the way
impugned his dad 'cause he left Saddam free.

"vids" above that I list were authored in 2006, when Bush critics urged, "Withdraw, do not surge,
this war is a loss we can't fix." Such critics
included Barack, who said, "Get out fast from Iraq, and funds I'll oppose 'cause ev'ryone knows
we simply can't 'win' in Iraq." With Reid and Pelosi
he tried to hold-back the funds for our side, but Bush-- no lame duck-- made them
pony-up with Joe joining John on his side. And now in
Two-Thousand-and-Eight the fruits of the surge have been great, yet those who opposed it won't say
though they know it, and vict'ry we're near in '08.

Jim is a proud descendant of 18th Century criminal exiles from England who swam to the Outer Banks when the British ship taking them to a Georgia penal colony sank in a storm near Cape Hatteras. Having the prescience to prevent their descendants from becoming "TarHeels," they immediately migrated to Virginia, where, within just a few generations they worked their way up into poverty. Jim's grandfather was the first in the family tree to see the distant horizons, but his career was cut short by severe injuries he sustained when a cousin cut down the tree.
After a brief stint in the Amry (ours) following graduation from law school, he began his legal career in the state bureaucracy but was never able to break into the federal bureaucracy. Several years later, he entered the private practice of law and co-founded a small law publishing company. Later, finding the publishing of small laws unstimulating and finding his private practice too private to be lucrative, he began writing political satire/commentary. His greatest vice is taking himself too seriously.
Although he regularly teaches Continuing Legal Education courses to lawyers, he's too-often available through he Rubber Chicken Speakers Bureau to speak on politics, satire, etc., at luncheons, dinners, root canals, funerals, etc. His speaking fees are so outrageously high they border on criminal price-gouging, but as a free-market advocate, he defends his fees on the higher moral ground of charging whatever the traffic will bear.
