    •  Also debunk that it's media and liberals that (0+ / 0-)

      are responsible for the whole Country being demoralized and losing it's nerve.  The war-mongers (Cheney et al) lost the Country based on the expectations set by themselves:

      - 400,000 tropps needed for stability: can Shinseki

      - War will cost at least $200 Billion: can Lindsey

      - Rumsfeld on how long will it last: "6 days, maybe 6 weeks, I doubt 6 months"

      - Missioned Accomplished

      - Last throes

      - Turning the corner when Saddam is caught

      - Turning the corner when elections are held

      - Turning the corner when ________

      And so many more outrageous lies that set the (false) expectations that are coming home to roost.  These false expectations were not set by the media or by liberals - they were set by a deceiving Administration at the short-term cost of tens of thousands of lives destroyed and Trillions of US$.  Unfortunately the long-term costs (in lost World standing, future terrorism, and general US weakness in the World) are going to be much worse for generations to come.

      Then they came for me - and by that time there was nobody left to speak up.
