This Cowardly Nation Has Learned Nothing Since the Iraq War

snip//

"There is a sizable number of Republican senators and representatives who believe Trumpís actions are at least theoretically impeachable, who believe a thorough fact-finding mission is necessary, who believe his removal from office is not an altogether radical idea."

Every single motherfucking one of those Republicans is a goddamned coward, afraid of what Trump will do if they dare say that criminal is a criminal, that a madman is a madman, that an idiot is an idiot. And now we might be sending more soldiers to die and allowing untold thousands of civilians to die in another stupid, useless war based on a gruel of lies that's so thin that not even Colin Powell could force it down.

Democrats need to out the Republicans who oppose Trump privately. Make them have to deny or defend themselves. Reporters need to burn their sources. That last quote up there is "from dozens of interviews with GOP lawmakers, congressional aides and White House staffers over the past month." How many people need to die in order for a Politico reporter to scoop those bastards at the Washington Post?

Time and again, the cowards allow their fear to wreck us. And you might say that you're not a coward, that you actually believe in a war with Iran and everything the president says. Well, then you're just an accomplice.

And those of us who allow them to get away with it time and again, for, indeed, the crisis we're in now is a direct result of not punishing those who caused the crisis last time, we also risk becoming accomplices.

1. You might say "you actually believe in a war with Iran"

Then we need that on the record, too. Far too many of the architects of the last two wars were let off the hook. When the rah-rah was over and the inevitable crapstorm rolled in, Republicans were allowed to distance themselves from the fiasco because their reporter pals just assumed they knew their position back in the day.

Ask questions. Get them on the record. See the way Joe Biden is being queried today about votes and speeches from the career in the Senate 15, 20, even 30 years ago? We need to establish a record for the cowards and the accomplices, and it's once again up to the media gatekeepers to ask these fuckers those questions. Try not to fuck it up yet again, O stalwarts of the Fourth Estate.
