Lies to weakness

This is a transcript of something Rush said on his show yesterday, it's worth repeating....

On Sunday's Face the Nation John Kerry said this: “There's no reason Bob, that young American soldiers need to be going into the homes of Iraqis in the dead of night, terrorizing kids and children..."

That's not the first time Kerry has accused our military of terrorist activities; his rise to national prominence came after his 1971 Congressional testimony, charging that our troops in Vietnam committed heinous atrocities on a daily basis — unfounded allegations about deeds Kerry never witnessed. In a recent speech, Kerry characterized that Vietnam testimony as “speaking truth to power.”

This week, at Saddam Hussein’s trial, witnesses (who really were there) spoke of the torture they experienced in his prisons. Sexual violence. Newborns left to die. Unspeakable acts visited upon entire families. The truth spoken by Saddam’s terror victims provoked no outrage from John Kerry or Howard Dean — who claims we are losing the war; or from John Murtha — who claims our army is broken; or from Hillary Clinton — full of doubletalk on the war. In fact, elected Democrats and their kook-fringe base insist our troops are causing terrorism. Joe Lieberman, the rare exception, is routinely impugned by Democrats.

We are winning in Iraq — despite difficult circumstances and loss of American life. Preparations for free elections are taking place. The region, and the world, will benefit. This is truth and power. Kerry and his band of quislings who insist our military is the problem don’t speak truth to power; they speak lies to weakness, and there’s nothing patriotic about one word they're saying.
