How NOT to Wage a War....Let the Politicians Run It

The publicity that the newly published Iraq Study Group report has been generating inside the beltway has proven to me, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that the best way to lose a war is to let politicians run it.

The war in Iraq, although it had a specious beginning, is on, and we need to let the people whose business it is to run wars, run the damn war, not a bunch of politicians who live and die by polls. The ISG Report is a prime example of why you don't want politicians to run your wars....these old farts were pulled out of cold storage to form a supposedly "bi-partisan" committe to study which way we should change our tactics regarding the rising civil unrest in Iraq. Their "report" is basically a strategy for defeat. The recommendations they put forth are utterly unrealistic. Negotiate with Iran and Syria?? Puleeze. They would like nothing better than to see us fail in Iraq, so that they can move in and take over. What are these men thinking?

If I were king, this is what I'd do:

1. Pull all embedded reporters out of active units in Iraq and send them home.

2. Institute a blackout on news coming from that part of the world, unless it's news about progress made, i.e., good news. Our media is a willing tool to the fanatics who hate America and Americans, and not only are they using stringers who actually make up the news, there is a conspiracy among the left leaning 4th estate to overload the American public (read: joe sixpack) with bad news, thus giving the impression that we are not making progress, and are, in fact, losing. This is unacceptable in a time of war, and should be stopped.

3. Indict Pinch Sulzberger and the editorial staffs of both the New York Times and the LA Times for treason, based on their outing of classified information which gives aid and comfort to the enemy in times of war. They are criminals, and should be executed for their actions. This is NOT free speech. It's the equivalent of yelling "fire" in a crowded theatre.

4. Take out Muqtada al-Sadr. There is a 12-cent bullet with his name on it. The whole culture of Arabs is not a "feel good" culture. They are savages and do not understand anything but brute force. There are no "nuances" for them. It's black and white. Either you are weak or you are strong. If you kill the head of the snake, as an old Arab saying goes, you will kill the body. Most of Sadr's militia are young, uneducated young men with no job prospects, and he gives them something to do, however destructive it may be. Not to mention the fact that the guy is no general. His humiliation in Falluja gives proof to this. He is nothing but trouble to the fledgeling government and should be dealt with for the criminal he is (in case you didn't know, there is a warrant for his arrest for murder that has never been enforced, so he IS a criminal). If he is taken out, his militia will disband.

5. Carpet bomb Sadr City. Sadr City is a hotbead of insurgent activity, and it needs to be leveled, to show the insurgents that we mean business. Oh, so sorry for the collateral damage. They don't seem to have a problem with killing thousands of their own, anyway. What's a few thousand more martyrs? They will be celebrated in the streets and the mosques for their sacrifice. I say sacrifice MORE of them, not less. Let 'em ALL be shaheeds! The more martyrs, the merrier the party in hell.

6. Declare martial law.

7. Disarm any illegal militias, and try the leaders for treason against their country.

8. Muzzle American politicians, and put the running of the war back into the hands of the people trained to run wars. No more politically correct wars. War is hell, and things and people get broken. Oh well. We'll clean up the mess like we always do after it's over. In the meantime, the gloves are off and lots of insurgents are going to die.

The mainstream media are mostly left wing socialists and anarchists, and would like nothing more than to see America brought low in the eyes of the world. Why are we letting them succeed?
