Lost in the tabloid saga that is Sen. Larry Craig (R-Idaho-not much longer) is the fact that on or around September 15, General David Petreaus will deliver the much-anticipated report on the success of the military surge in the Iraq theatre in the War Against Islamofascist Terror.
The good news in that now, the DDBMSM will not be able to give the anti-war forces free reign to trot out their liars and charlatans and will be shadowed by a non-partisan group called Gathering Of Eagles. HT: Michelle Malkin http://michellemalkin.com. According to Mrs. Malkin, this is a coalition of Rolling Thunder, military bloggers and troop/war supporters.
Also under this umbrella are such groups as Move America Forward http://moveamericaforward.org, the Victory Caucus http://victorycaucus.com, Free Republic http://freerepublic.com and Vets For Freedom http://vetsforfreedom.com.
The goal is to shadow the fifth columnist Communist group ANSWER-Act Now to Stop War and End Racism that plans one of their creepy demonstrations on September 15. The ANSWER crowd will stage a "Die-In" in which some of the cretins will pretend that they are victims of the war in the Iraq theatre.
ANSWER also is active in finding disgruntled soldiers who are serving or who have served in the War Against Islamofascist Terror and making their dissenting views seem like the majority that are serving in the armed forces.
A point of note. No one put a gun to any one serving now in the armed forces to join. They were not drafted. If some joined thinking they were there for a cakewalk, well some one sold them a bill of goods. When one joins the armed forces, they do not get to pick and choose where they will or will not fight. If a policeman did not want to go to a certain neighborhood, there would be anarchy. Same for a fireman. Same for anyone who joins any group or organization. Same for the armed forces.
The ANSWER crowd, it should be noted, is very active in the pro illegal immigration movement and was very active in the infamous May Day national demonstrations of 2006. Do you note the day the ANSWER group and their hangers-on chose-May Day, the Communist "workers" holiday. Most of the participants had no clue about the real goals of ANSWER and their affiliates. Thus, most thought they were simply demonstrating for illegal immigrant "rights."
If it holds true that the pro-war forces are able to keep up with ANSWER there will be no way the DDBMSM can avoid covering them. I am sure they will try to make their voice seen as way out of the mainstream or wackos, take your pick!
We in the blogosphere must do all to support this effort so that the rest of America knows that ANSWER is not the only game in town and that once and for all, they will be challenged and that will be a great event for our brave troops and the United States.
