For Shame, Ari...

The Republicans are hell bent on pressing ahead with this 'stay the course/let the surge work' bullshit. So much so that they have created some of the most obscene commercials ever produced using wounded vets and the families of those we've lost.

The common thread? We invaded Iraq because of terrorism. If we don't fight them there they will follow us here. We have to go on with the mission for the fallen. In one of the videos, a mother of a soldier killed in Iraq is used for propaganda purposes, ostensibly with her agreement.

Mrs. Strong, I'm going to give you the benefit of the doubt and assume you actually believe what you're saying. Let me clue you in on something you're obviously not ready to face... Your son, like many others, died for a lie. Yes, he did free Iraq from Saddam Hussein. However, it wasn't to keep WMD's from being used against the US. It wasn't to take out those who perpetrated 9/11. It was the work of people, drunk on their ideology, who sought to remake the world as they saw fit using your son and many other brave American soldiers. That's what really happened. Our President lied to us. His advisors deliberately engineered evidence and outright lied about the threat posed by Iraq. The invasion was unnecessary. And the man responsible for 9/11 is still at large.

Finally, Mrs. Strong, how many more have to die before you'll let your son go? How many more mothers have to bury their sons before you'll say enough is enough? Before you and others will admit that we don't belong in the middle of a civil war? You son and millions of men and women he served with have done their duty to their country. It's our duty to them, as civilians, to elect men and women who will put an end to this and bring them home.

And for you, the shameless Mr. Fleischer, may you be reviled the world over as a shill par excellence. As someone who'd sell his own mother to make a buck. Enjoy your irrelevance.
