Whetting the Enemies’ Appetite

This is from Lindsey Graham on the Senate floor a few ago:

THE DEMOCRATIC LEADERSHIP DOESN’T GET IT AT ALL. BLINDED BY DISLIKE OF THIS PRESIDENT THAT THEY CAN’T SEE CLEARLY WHAT IS GOING ON IN IRAQ.

BECAUSE WHEN YOU SAY THE WAR IS LOST, THE NEXT QUESTION TO ASK IS IF WE LOST, WHO WON? BECAUSE IN WAR, THERE ARE WINNERS AND THERE ARE LOSERS. AND IF THE MAJORITY LEADER HAS DECLARED US THE LOSER, THEN THE QUESTION NEEDS TO BE ASKED BY THE WORLD AND THIS COUNTRY: WHO WON THAT WAR IN IRAQ? WELL, I TELL YOU WHO WILL CLAIM CREDIT FOR WINNING THE WAR IN IRAQ. AL QAEDA.

IF YOU BELIEVE GIVING THESE GROUPS IRAQ MAKES US SAFER, YOU KNOW NOTHING ABOUT HUMAN BEHAVIOR OR HISTORY AS A WHOLE.

WHEN YOU GIVE INTO THE DARK FORCES OF HUMANITY, WHEN YOU ALLOW PEOPLE WHO SLAUGHTER THE INNOCENT TO WIN WARS, YOU DON’T END THEIR DESIRE. YOU WHET THEIR APPETITE.

Think I’m exaggerating? See this ... Read More
