Wanna win the War on the Jihad? Kill the Messenger

It was the custom in Ancient Greece and later in Rome to employ
messengers to carry the news throughout the city/state/empire. This
news was not always to the liking of the recipients but the laws
decreed that these messengers where to pass unharmed from place
to place and city toKill_the_messenger_2 city to deliver whatever message they were
commanded to spread amongst the population.

Hence the expression ‘Don’t kill the messenger‘: or rather its
Greek or Latin equivalent.

It was said that when Cleopatra received news that Antony has married
  Octavia.  She flew into a rage and tried to kill the messenger (she only calms down when the messenger says that Octavia is nowhere near as pretty as Cleopatra – I sooooooo get Cleo).

A ridiculous solution ………..then.

An appropriate solution now. Now more than ever.

Watching the major news outlets spin the 11/9 bombings in Jordan, ignore the 800lb Radical Islamist gorilla in Paris,  I am convinced now more than ever we must kill the messenger. According to the mainstream media, the terror attacks in Jordan is Bush’s fault. Yup, the Dems say it is the war in Iraq that is responsible for this and every other terror attack. And while they don’t believe in the war  they want to send more troops in (!). They want it both ways but that’s not my point. The left spews their propaganda unchallenged, intellectually unchallenged. One would think with all news, all the time 24/7/365, there would be great analysis of these wildly interesting times. But no car chases and propaganda.

"Liberalism isn’t a political philosophy. It’s a vile combination of sickness
and evil."
—Rabbi Mayer Schiller

Bush did not create these terrorists, the have been preparing for this
for decades
. We ignored it for decades (hey, it was Israel’s problem
right? So who really cared?) and then woke up to 9/11.

The drumbeat is constant, relentless and working. Americans hate the war. Look I hate war but WTF does that have to do with anything? The war in Iraq is one front, the main theater no doubt, but only one tenet to America’s war on Radical Islamo-fascism. Human intelligence, alliances with states that share our values, those with us [as opposed to against us], the Bush Doctrine etc.

And even more interesting is the Right’s self flagellation. I was listening to Fred Barnes and many others repeat the mantra that the Bush administration doesn’t refute the charges enough. Constantly, it is said that the Bushies don’t do the job of getting the good news out there. The best brains on the right say this. I counter, by saying how? If you’ve got a message, but no one to deliver how the f*ck are you going to get it out there? Seriously……….

The facts are;

  • The news from Iraq is good, excellent in fact. Yes soldiers are dying but that is what soldiers are supposed to do. Protect us. They fight so that we are free to get up, get dressed and go to work without getting our asses blown off.
  • The economy is robust, excellent in fact despite the war, the acts of G-d and the left. Someone explain to me why the Republicans dropped the oil drilling from the today’s bill before Congress.  Republican moderates have forced House Republicans intoRino_1 removing a provision of
    the budget bill which would have opened up a portion of Alaskan wilderness to
    oil drilling.
    Gas prices? Blame the left. Blame the left for our lack of
    refineries, blame the left for locking us out of our own natural
    resources, blame the left for ANWR, blame the left for blocking energy
    reform. Everyone is angry at the oil companies. Why? It’s the law of
    supply and demand. Why wasn’t everyone mad at the tech companies when
    demand was high and they were making a ton of money? The subway used to
    be a nickel, houses could be bought for 10k………….who are we to
    expect the price of a gallon of gas to remain the same?  Why aren’t the
    American people enraged at the left for the lack of refineries? What
    happens when you have the United States, China, India, Europe, and
    Japan all competing over the same oil? We are seeing today the
    beginning of a new era in which the Middle East will no longer be a
    unipolar arena. There will be other players, particularly China, that
    will move in and want to cut deals and alliances. Interruptions from
    the hurricanes tightened supply, but consumer demand stayed high,
    fueled by China and India – so gasoline prices went up. Oil companies
    profited from the situation, but they didn’t arbitrarily set their
    prices extra-high. Market forces determined prices. Did you see those hearings yesterday? Those clowns interogating the heafs of oil companies? Oy, what a joke. If they really cared they’d drop the ginormous gasline tax on each gallon (meanwhile gas prices have dropped 23 cents in the past 2 weeks)

    As Cuanas points out;

    "The other day, Rush was talking about the myth of price-gouging as it relates to the oil industry. He pointed out that the average oil company profit on a gallon is 11 cents. The average tax on a gallon of gas is 46 cents."

    The UN pressures Syria to turn over suspects in the Rafiq al-Hariri
    assassination,and the
    Lebanon Cedar revolution could topple the Arab world’s Berlin
    Lebanese citizens are clearly no longer afraid of the Syrians and are moving
    quickly toward regaining their independence and becoming a truly democratic
    society. This phenomenon obviously poses a huge threat not only to Syria, but
    also to Islamists throughout the Middle East terrified of liberty in their
    midst. This first true pro-democratic revolution in the Arab world

    Thank George Bush for that. 

    sales surged in October.

    Low unemployment.

    Low inflation.

  • The left berates Bush on racism and yet the man has the most diverse and multicultural staff/cabinet in our nation’s history.

  • and finally WMD? Oy, I, for one, believe in the strategy of bringing democracy to the Middle East but even so, we know there were WMD. We just don’t know who Saddam gave it to.

    I believe the missing WMD is in Iran or Syria but even so the following has been found;

    Did you know WMDs have been found in Iraq?
    * 1.77
    metric tons
    of enriched uranium
    * 1,500 gallons of chemical
    weapons agents

    * 17
    chemical warheads containing cyclosarin
    (a nerve agent five times more
    deadly than sarin gas)
    * Over
    1,000 radioactive materials in powdered form
    meant for dispersal over
    populated areas
    * Roadside bombs loaded with mustard
    and “conventional” sarin gas,
    assembled in binary chemical projectiles for maximum potency

    This is only a PARTIAL LIST of the horrific weapons verified to have been
    recovered in Iraq to date. Yet, Americans are consistently misled by the left and the mainstream media that U.S. and
    coalition forces found NO weapons of mass destruction. Iraq was a weapon of mass destruction

Bottom line, the news is great but you can’t berate Bush or his people for not "talking it up enough" if no one is listening! Not only that but our Republican brethren has blinked in the face of media pressure. Congressional Republicans have completed balked, capitulated to the MSM, and squandered an historical opportunity.

Why can’t we just get on the same goddamn page on this already. Doesn’t the MSM realize the emergence of the blogosphere filled a ginormous void? An established void. Talk about grassroots……………….

So finally the idea of killing the messenger comes into it’s own. Because reports of the death of Old Media are greatly exaggerated, especially when all
outlets decide to speak with one voice (see election results 11/08/2005)- Deconstructing the Media’s Colorado

"Propaganda is persuading people to make up their minds while withholding some
of the facts from them." —Harold Evans

It’s time to kill the messenger……………...looking forward to D-Day.

UPDATE: The British Messenger must go too
