And Now, for More Unhelpful Rhetoric from the Antiwar Crowd...

1. "You can support the troops but not the president."

2. "Bombing a sovereign nation for ill-defined reasons with vague objectives undermines the American stature in the world. The international respect and trust for America has diminished every time we casually let the bombs fly."

3. "I cannot support a failed foreign policy. History teaches us that it is often easier to make war than peace. This administration is just learning that lesson right now."

4. "[The] President…is once again releasing American military might on a foreign country with an ill-defined objective and no exit strategy. He has yet to tell the Congress how much this operation will cost. And he has not informed our nation's armed forces about how long they will be away from home."

5. "Explain to the mothers and fathers of American servicemen that may come home in body bags why their son or daughter have to give up their life?"

6. "Victory means exit strategy, and it's important for the President to explain to us what the exit strategy is."


Key:
1-3. Representative Tom Delay (R-TX)
4. Senator Rick Santorum (R-PA)
5. Sean Hannity, Fox News
6. Governor George W. Bush (R-TX)

They were among the critics of the ultimately successful military engagement in Kosovo.

Man Charlie, you are prolific! How's a guy supposed to keep up!

This is just too choice, why is this not being shouted from the rooftops? I'll do my best to "cascade" it, as we like to say in corporate America.
