You can support the troops but not the president." --Rep Tom Delay (R-TX)

"Well, I just think it's a bad idea. What's going to happen is they're going to be over there for 10, 15, maybe 20 years." --Joe Scarborough (R-FL)

"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?" --Sean Hannity, Fox News, 4/6/99

"[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. These strikes do not make for a sound foreign policy." --Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA)

"American foreign policy is now one huge big mystery. Simply put, the administration is trying to lead the world with a feel-good foreign policy." --Rep Tom Delay (R-TX)

"If we are going to commit American troops, we must be certain they have a clear mission, an achievable goal and an exit strategy." --Karen Hughes, speaking on behalf of George W Bush

"I had doubts about the bombing campaign from the beginning . . . I didn't think we had done enough in the diplomatic area." --Senator Trent Lott (R-MS)

"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. The President began this mission with very vague objectives and lots of unanswered questions. A month later, these questions are still unanswered. There are no clarified rules of engagement. There is no timetable. There is no legitimate definition of victory. There is no contingency plan for mission creep. There is no clear funding program. There is no agenda to bolster our over-extended military. There is no explanation defining what vital national interests are at stake. There was no strategic plan for war when the President started this thing, and there still is no plan today." --Rep Tom Delay (R-TX)

"Victory means exit strategy, and it's important for the President to explain to us what the exit strategy is." --Governor George W. Bush (R-TX)

These, of course, were during the Clinton years.

(And probably the only time I would ever had agreed with these people)

His exit strategy is pretty simple, allow them to form a Muslim government that has no respect for human rights, as long as he can have most of their oil money in return. If your going to war, make sure your new government is Libertarian, so it can protect freedom.

The new Iraqi constitution contains a provision that no legislation may be passed that contradicts Islamic law.

It also contains this:

"1st -- Each person has the right to personal privacy as long as it does not violate the rights of others or general morality."

and
"1st -- Private property is protected and the owner has the right to use it, exploit it and benefit from it within the boundaries of the law."

The "general morality" and the "within the boundaries of the law" stuff are squirrelly but it's a good start to just say no.

The US Bill of Rights has no such clauses yet is violated on nearly every level. How can mere words on parchment protect anyone from those wielding power?
