"It is courage that keeps an untiring vigil..."

Great speech by the President today. It's so good to see him finally hit back at the despicable lying attacks that he has been bombarded with. I only hope this is the start of a lot more pushback.

I've said this before, but all of our great wars during the 20th Century were Democrat wars. And in every one the Republicans were the loyal opposition, and supported our country and our troops warm-heartedly, and whole-heartedly. Even though it might harm them politically. Even though those wars had screw-ups that sometimes killed 2,000 men in a day. And now, now, to see how evilly we are repaid by those loathsome blackguards and cheats, how they put their momentary political advantage above loyalty to their country, how they voted to send our soldiers into battle, and then turned on them and now undercut their mission in a thousand ways, giving great encouragement to our enemies...

And they aren't even Democrats, really. Hippie frauds and flakes who stand for nothing. Harry Truman would have hated them. He believed in fighting for freedom. They don't deserve to live in this great country.

The main part of the speech of course was on the war....

...The influence of Islamic radicalism is also magnified by helpers and enablers. They've been sheltered by authoritarian regimes — allies of convenience like Iran and Syria — that share the goal of hurting America and modern Muslim governments, and use terrorist propaganda to blame their own failures on the West, on America, and on the Jews. This week the government of Syria took two disturbing steps. First, it arrested Dr. Kamal Labwani for serving as an advocate for democratic reform. Then President Assad delivered a strident speech that attacked both the Lebanese government and the integrity of the Mehlis investigation into the assassination of Lebanon's former prime minister.

The government of Syria must do what the international community has demanded: cooperate fully with the Mehlis investigation and stop trying to intimidate and de-stabilize the Lebanese government. The government of Syria must stop exporting violence and start importing democracy...

You turkeys heard him right; that's must, not should. Nexxxxt domino! Faster, please. Of course the fake peaceniks will try to keep Assad in power, just like they tried to keep Saddam in power. Because Assad is so peaceful, you understand. A man of peace. They just can't help but love him.

...Like the ideology of communism, our new enemy is dismissive of free peoples — claiming that men and women who live in liberty are weak and decadent. Zarqawi has said that Americans are, "the most cowardly of God's creatures." But let us be clear: It is cowardice that seeks to kill children and the elderly with car bombs, and cuts the throat of a bound captive, and targets worshipers leaving a mosque.

It is courage that liberated more than 50 million people from tyranny. It is courage that keeps an untiring vigil against the enemies of rising democracies. And it is courage in the cause of freedom that will once again destroy the enemies of freedom....
