First Lady: Support the troops by supporting the mission

MANCHESTER, N.H. --First lady Laura Bush rallied Republicans on Monday, praising the state's two GOP congressmen for supporting President Bush on the Iraq war.

Mrs. Bush said she and her husband have met with wounded soldiers and families of soldiers killed in Iraq.

"And from our troops and their families, the president and I hear the same request: that we honor the sacrifice of these men and women by seeing their mission through," she said.

She said American troops have freed Iraqis from the tyranny of Saddam Hussein and made it possible for girls in Afghanistan to get an education.

18. She didn't mention, "They asked to go HOME!"
because they have no idea what they are fighting for...except to die!

13. So...which "mission" are we in process of completing?...
Is this a different mission from the one that was "accomplished" over three years ago? You know... the one on that banner on the aircraft carrier?

14. The mission was accomplished three weeks after the invasion and occupation
remember Laura?

She is a pathetic reminder of her total zombie like obedience to an utter fool who kills with impunity and who led our troops into Iraq on lieS. Why? Where else would she get her livlihood and where else would it be so elitist, so up there in the eschalons of society, than to be a member of the Bush family? Without the Bush family, she would be a school librarian.

Nobody knows what the mission is. It was Osama at first, then weapons, then an evil dictator, then freedom, and now ... Well, nobody's really clear.

What mission are we supporting? What are the criteria for victory?

What precisely does 'Support the Troops' mean? That phrase has been in use since 1991, but I have never heard anyone define it.

Laura, do you ever listen to yourself? Because if you did, you'd have to pop a dozen Xanax to keep your head from exploding.

Edited on Mon Oct-30-06 06:38 PM by geniph
for no goddam good reason. Supporting the troops means not sending them to fight and die for NOTHING, with no plan to bring them home safely.

Take a few more Klonopin and go lie down for a while.

Well, bless her heart.

32. Oh--Yeah. We freed them alright! They are free to rebuild ....
....and try to survive a civil war; survive day to day; avoid kidnapping; free to try and safely get to a hospital where there are death squads waiting.....

Are Afghani girls still getting an education- I mean something other than how to survive in a world of shifting allegiances and daily brutality ?

Hmmm- Oh, yeah. What was the mission, again?

through her negligence and was never charged with anything. It wouldn't happen here.

Oh, right, people of the Bush's social class don't have to join the military to get an education. Only the "little people" join the military -- or pay taxes.

46. Her handlers need to update her on the plight of women
in the Mideast since the U.S. invasion into Iraq. It's worse. Not better. The fundamentalist Islamists are waging their own war of terror on women. Females are afraid to venture out for fear of reprisal. "Honor" killings are making a comeback. And females are staying at home rather than attend school or work. Without the iron fist of Hussein crushing the fundamentalists, the mullahs are enforcing severe restrictions on women's rights.
Laura needs to educate herself.
But she might not have time since she's so busy "ending gang violence".
