In the spirit of the Abraham Lincoln brigade that Americans formed to fight in the Spanish Civil War when frustrated that America would not enter the fray I hereby announce the formation of the Ronald Reagan freedom brigade to head to Iraq and fight against the Sunni to preserve Iraq (unless Iran enters the war in which case we will quickly change sides becoming the George W. Bush freedom brigade to fight the axis of evil, unless Putin decides to back the Shi'ite's in which case we will become the George H. Bush freedom brigade to preserve the Middle East, unless big oil sides with the Sunnis in which case we will become the Richard Cheney freedom brigade to for energy independence and the right to fire buckshot into anybody's face, unless.... well we'll have a brigade anyway).

We will rally to the cause my friends, we will rally to the cause.  You will have to pay your own way over there of course and bring your own weapons - except no weapons of mass destruction - unless of course we become the George W. Bush brigade so we can claim there always were weapons of mass destruction.  We will fight because America and Obama are ignoring the great struggle that is going on in the Middle East today.  The Shi'ites have a right to dominate the Sunnis - unless of course the Sunnis who are fighting Assad are with the Sunnis who are fighting the Shi-ites in which case it is the Sunnis who have the right, except of course that applies only to Syria.  And the Ronald Reagan brigade is not going into Syria they can find their own brigade.  Read below the squiggly thing to see our call to arms.

We will have no age limits.  John McCain that means we want you to to grab that red head band and those Vietnam era weapons.  We need you to lead us general McCain.  You will be our Hemmingway, our great avatar drawing the idealists to our cause as you lead our ragtag troops into battle against the Sunnis unless Iran enters and then you will lead us against the Shi'ites.

We want to idealistic writers who really believe in our cause.  We look forward to David Brooks ripping off his tie and tearing away his shirt sleeves.  We fantasize Fred Hiatt standing bare chested atop a sand dune beating his chest, screaming "America is here!"  Everybody writing for the national journal gets an automatic commission of Colonel and a cigar.

We look to be as open as possible, we do not judge.  Lindsey Graham come and join us and you will be one of use, we promise.

We are looking for a few good women.  Sarah Palin put down that Facebook page and get on the bandwagon.

We are open to any person who truly believes in our cause.  We do not need to wait for Obama.  The Ronald Reagan freedom brigade to save Iraq will ride to show our idealism.  Join us, join us, all those that believe American must move to protect - well we'll figure that out when we get there.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
