What’s good for the goose...
I can’t believe State Department employees are complaining about being involuntarily transferred to Baghdad. Senior Foreign Services Officer Jack Croddy had the nerve to ask, “Who will raise our children if we are dead or seriously wounded?” I don’t recall anyone from the State Department asking who will raise the children of the thousands of US troops who are dying and coming home without limbs. If everyone quits in protest, the State Department might have to outsource to a private rent-an-embassador firm in order to legitimize the US embassy in Baghdad, and that could cost us billions of dollars in contract fees.

Vote for Ron Paul. End this fiasco now.
Notice, I didn't say quagmire?
Thats cuz I'm for the USA, not the dems or repubs
The State Department employees sound like most of the liberal cowards in this country and on this blog when it comes to doing their duty for this country. Maybe they'll head for Canada. I hope they stay there or get thrown in to Leavenworth Federal Penitentiary.

KC, maybe they are off to take the place of the state employees who quit.Posted by Sharon B. on November 9, 2007 06:30 PM
No, the would not have the guts to look fear in the eye. Who needs guts when they can cowardly call any one who disagrees with them un-patriotic for seeing the truth behind the lies and hype.Posted by Been there, done that, n ow that I am home, don't send me back for the FORTH time to watch humanity on November 9, 2007 08:55 PM

Our anonymous coward sounds like Keith or Hank in disguise. It's the same old tired, "Rush Limbaugh broken record garbage", that those two goons parrot every time they post here. I think they just can't stand the fact that a clear majority of the country, regardless of what poll you look at (even the polls on the Fox "Noise" Channel), is really for the fiasco in Iraq to end, and they are hardly "liberal cowards" as our anonymous Chumpzilla put it.Posted by Keith and Hank sittin' in a tree, K-I-S-S-I-N-G on November 9, 2007 11:35 PM
I notice none of the BDS sufferes have stood up to take the place of these state dept. employees. Well I will .I would be more then happy to have thier job. Good pay, excellent bennies. So what if the job is in Bahgdad. It would be no worse then being a white man in L.A. or Harlem.Posted by The Shadow on November 10, 2007 08:07 AM
OMG, doesn't anyone look into these issues before they comment on them. The State Dept employees (not appointees) who are protesting this tend to be career employees who knew going to Iraq was a bad idea in the first place. It was the political appointees in the State Department who pressed for this fiasco.Posted by Peter Z on November 10, 2007 11:16 PM
Look we all know the Democrat party is the party of cowards and liars.I am going to do a very brave act today.I am going to the mountains and fire off hundreds of rounds of ammo. This is a very brave act to a Democrat coward.They are working to take our firearms away.Democrats make me feel like a Super Hero!!!! I might even shoot my AK-47.I did not want to mention that because Democrats might wet their pants.I am so brave.Compared to a Democrat that is!!!Posted by An American on November 11, 2007 08:23 AM
It is tough for the far right wing to claim that they still support our troops these days.Posted by jay on November 11, 2007 01:31 PM

So what? They shouldn't whine. If they don't want to do THEIR JOBS, they should quietly resign and move on. I'm totally against the way this war is run for profity by the Bushney twins, but that's completely beside the point. I say to the whiners - Do the job we are paying you for or go work at Starbucks. jeez.Posted by Mac on November 11, 2007 04:37 PM
So all you can do is go to the mountains and masturbate your phallic symbol until you've proven your brave? You're joking I hope, because if you are serious, you need help with your manhood phobia and your, all problems can be solved by me and my gun attitude. You need to see a psychiatrist and right damned now as a matter of fact before someone takes you seriously up there in the mountains and you find yourself holding the short end of your phallic symbol.Posted by Allen Campbell on November 12, 2007 07:04 AM
Allen I think you do not understand what I was saying in my posting.Even holding a gun is a brave act for a Democrat.Shooting it would be Super Brave.Democrats have become a party of what I would say are cowards.Every leader in the Democrat party is pushing to take guns away because the members of the party,you, are so fearful.The reason you attack me for the fact that I shoot guns is because you do not feel like a man and fear firearms.This is a problem most Democrats have if they fear something they say a person is weird for wanting to do that activity.Allen what you need to do is go look at yourself and say "I am a Democrat coward and I am proud of it".If the gays can do it you can too."DMZ" says that many liberals like him were raised with firearms and know how to use them.Well "dmz "why are ALL the Democrat Liberal leaders trying to ban guns?DMZ you imply that you support gun rights how can you support liberal leaders?I think I know why.DMZ is probably getting free stuff from the government because of the Liberal leaders.Dmz is probably the worst kind of Democrat he will bend over for the government that gives him the most money and sell his freedoms.Posted by An American on November 12, 2007 07:37 AM
You are impossible to have a dialogue with because you are so wrapped up in secnd amendment rights you can't concentrate on anything else. Find me one place in any comment where I said I was a member of any political party. You can't so why do you accuse me of being a democrat? Because I don't agree with your infatuation with guns? I carried a gun for over twenty years. As for being a coward, I guess they made a mistake in giving me three citations for saving people's lives and when I served, in an agency helping Russian defectors get to America, I guess they made a mistake thinking I had the courage to do it. You know absolutely nothing about who I am or what I've done. Take your mindless and insipid remarks, write them backwars on a piece of paper then hold it up to a mirror and you will see that they apply to you and only you.Posted by Allen Campbell on November 12, 2007 10:35 AM
Allen your postings are all I can go by and those make you sound like a Democrat coward.If you are not then start posting like you have a little courage.The reason I support the Second Amendment so much is because people like you do so little.I am trying to make up for the inaction of "brave" citation winning people like you.You can start by joining the NRA.I would think with your history you can afford the $35 membership.I will start monitoring your posting so let's see if you sound like a Democrat.
A.A , You seem to be suffering paranoid delusions which is typical of you cons, today, and Abraham Lincoln would be ashamed that his Republican party has been taken over by the obviously ignorant .
Your also obviously equally ignorant leader ,currently residing at 1600 Penn. shares a distain for the Constitution that , in his case he swore to protect and defend.
He not only failed to do so, but he has acted to circumvent our Constitution, a treasonable offense for which the penalty is death. You and the other obviously ignorant can claim stupidity as a defense, and I'm sure a jury of your peers will concur. This is still the United States of America, and you have the right to due process. Lucky you.
Bush has those same rights, but WILL be found guilty and must pay the penalty.
Till that happens, and it will, I suggest you get a good lawyer, and ask some kind, literate Liberal to read the Constitution to you , especially the 1st and 4th amendments.
Or you can choose to shove your AK-47 up your ass and fire away.
I sincerely hope, for the benefit of good Americans everywhere, that you choose the latter.Posted by dmz on November 12, 2007 07:51 PM
dmz,thinks I am a nut.I think anyone reading his posting will see he is nutty as a fruit cake.I think even Democrats will give me a "shout out" on this one!!!!! These are the people that want to run this country?It could be I struck a nerve when I said dmz is bending over for the free stuff the government is giving him.I guess the truth hurts.Posted by An American on November 12, 2007 11:56 PM
