RUSH: Today, I would like to join the chorus of those calling for a cease-fire in Iraq. I don't mean a truce and I don't mean a surrender. Don't misunderstand me. I'm talking about a cease-fire.
I, your host, El Rushbo, on today -- Tuesday, June the 14th -- call for a 90-day cease-fire in Iraq.
I call on the New York Times to lay down their arms. I call on the Democrats in Congress to stop the assaults. I call on weak-kneed Republicans to lower the temperature for 90 days, three measly months.
Lebanon is in the middle of a crucial election sequence. Iran is about to have an even more crucial election. Syrian and Saudi terror backers are losing for signs.
So for 90 days, no attacks on our war effort. Somewhere, deep inside, there has to be something -- a memory of patriotism, a stirring of some national pride -- some remaining sense of right and wrong.
A loose wire in the brains of the left and the media that can be connected if only temporarily, to bring about a 90-day cease-fire because the upside for the United States is enormous.
Positive news, upbeat spirit, a seemingly united United States would send a warning to our enemies, a rallying cry to our allies and a signal to those nations shirking responsibility.
Just a 90-day cease-fire. There's no downside to this. You still have a full-year plus to return to playing politics, to bashing the president, to bashing the administration, bashing the Republican Party, to even bashing America if you want. So much to gain and so little to risk from a 90-day cease-fire.
After all, it could take two years or two decades for the wisdom our Middle East policy to bear fruit. Is it too much to ask you on the left to give unity a chance for just 90 days?
No, my friends, I'm not living in a dream world. I know it won't happen but I wanted to put it out there. I know it won't happen because the left in this country considers Christians to be a greater enemy than militant Islamist terrorists.
Indeed, the left hates white Christians more than it hates Islamic terrorists.
Hold your fire for the good of the country, and the world. Fat chance..........
You got THAT right.
NO, it's counterproductive to their survival!
Rush is correct when he said:
"I know it won't happen because the left in this country considers Christians to be a greater enemy than militant Islamist terrorists"
Everybody needs to email Rush to hit all the talk shows with this plan!
"Could the left ever put what's in the best interest of this country first? NO, it's counterproductive to their survival!" ~ jan in Colorado
But like Rush said today, we're gonna hold them accountable:
"...I'm gonna tell you something folks; if we are hit again --- if we are hit again --- we need to hold these people in our country who are undermining our efforts, responsible.
It aint gonna be the FBI's fault next time. It isn't gonna be the CIA's fault next time. It isn't gonna be some bureaucracy's fault next time.
It's gonna be the fault of politicians, left-wing groups, and the like, who have names and identities and spend their every waking moment trying to obstruct our ability to secure intelligence information for our own national security.
Want some names? Leahy, Biden, Durben, Boxer, Kennedy, Reid, Newsweek, Time, the New York Times, Amnesty International -- if we get hit again - these are the names of the people and organizations we need to look at when we're trying to find out why and how it happened. .." ~ Rush
Peddle it somewhere else. It only flies with losers.
Why is this dated April 14, 2005?
If you knew very much about the Military, you'd know that Bush did listen to the Generals, just not the looney leftist generals.
If WMDs were a fiasco, blame all those leaders, Democrats and foreign intelligence agencies that have been saying for over a decade they were there and needed dealt with, even down to sKerry.
As for KIAs, there were more killed in one day during WW2, several times, than in the entire war on terror. It's a good thing the left wasn't loud enough to force our troops to surrender while winning then.
Try not to pay so much attention to the drivel of the left from now on, you might even get an education.
Put on the asbestos underwear, but you're right. If a Democrat had led us into this war, you can bet everyone here would agree with your opinion. Some people will do anything for a GOP president.
I don't want us to set a timeline for withdrawal -- it would only encourage more trouble -- but I hope we get the hell out of there ASAP.
Dang! Thanks for picking up on that. I have no idea why I typed April instead of June there.
May I have the moderator change it to June for me. Thanks in advance!
You may want to consider changing your screen name to "The Old Loser" - it fits.
It's not my fault you're immune to reality.
Losers don't get to define reality for winners.
Thanks so much for posting this.
I'm sorry I missed his show today. Sounds like Rush was on fire today saying things that have needed to be said for a long time!
The "left" is giving aid and comfort to our enemy, right along with the MSM.
