…you will be hammering the last nail in the coffin of American respectability.
…you will be passing up your last opportunity to make a wholesale repudiation of the disastrous war in Iraq.
… you will be supporting the notion that the “ends justify the means”, no matter how horrible the means.
… you will be confirming your complicity in the senseless deaths of thousands of American service members and hundreds of thousands of innocent Iraqis.
The 2008 election should be about one thing and one thing only. The fact that we have in the past 7 years become a murderous and criminal member of the world community means that we must put every other issue on the back-burner and correct our horrible mistakes.
Hillary Clinton made a self-serving political calculation in the days leading up to the invasion of Iraq that she was not willing to take the risk of standing up to the Bush Administration’s fraudulent push for war. In fact, not only did she not resist, she pushed her way to the front of the bandwagon and became one of its most vocal supporters.
If we now make her our President, we will be saying once and for all that we are OK with what has been done in our names in Iraq. We will be saying that, although everyone realizes that the war was a mistake based on lies, we are willing to turn a blind eye to our mistakes and “move on”. Well, the families of the dead are surely not so willing to move on, and if you cast your vote for Hillary, you disrespect the lives that have been lost. A vote for Hillary is a vote to confirm that the USA is nothing but a Machiavellian, power-driven monster that is willing to spill innocent blood in the name of money and power.
If you are willing to make such a choice, God help you…
