The Ugly Side of Liberalism
It doesn’t matter what kind of facts or logic you hurl at a Sylvester, he’s too silly with liberalism and has his feet so firmly planted in the clouds, that it is impossible for him to hear you.
So, when Glenn says that there were more than one reason discussed and aired and put in print to invade Iraq (Fact), Sylvester comes back with, “Maybe I was among those Americans who heard another part of the president’s 2003 address…”
I guess you were, Sylvester… but only because it was impossible for you to hear anything else in your liberal mind.
The Joint Resolution to Authorize the Use of United States Armed Forces Against Iraq (H.J.Res. 114) was a resolution passed in October 2002 by the United States Congress authorizing what was soon to become the 2003 invasion of Iraq under the War Powers Resolution. The authorization was sought by U.S. President George W. Bush, and it passed the House by a vote of 296-133 and the Senate by a vote of 77-23, receiving significant support from both major political parties. It was signed into law by President Bush on October 16, 2002.
The act cited several factors to justify a war:
*Iraq’s noncompliance with the conditions of the 1991 cease fire
*Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction, and programs to develop such weapons, posed a “threat to the national security of the United States and international peace and security in the Persian Gulf region”
*Iraq’s “brutal repression of its civilian population”
*Iraq’s “capability and willingness to use weapons of mass destruction against other nations and its own people”
*Iraq’s hostility towards the United States as demonstrated by the 1993 assassination attempt of George Bush Sr, and firing on coalition aircraft enforcing the no-fly zones following the 1991 Gulf War
*Iraq’s connection to terrorist groups, including Al Qaeda
*Fear that Iraq would provide weapons of mass destruction to terrorists for use against the United States
Sylvester’s liberal mind will not be changed…
Sadly, Sylvester is too far gone flapping at the moon to let facts sink in. Maybe he will give up now that the facts are laid out before him, but I doubt it. Those pesky liberals don’t bring much logic for ammo but they do keep coming back at ya! You gotta give ’em that.
