Dick's little mind
Illinois democratic senator Dick Durbin is the dumbest of the dumb. With his latest bashing anti-American remarks about U.S. Troops in Guantanamo Bay Cuba, Durbin has indeed crossed the line and offended the entire military, and most American's, playing right into the enemies hands.
In Durbin's small mind, he likely believes that republicans, and even our own military are more his enemy than the terrorists' are now, or the Germans, Japanese, Soviets and Vietcong were back then.
"When you talk about the gulags and the concentration camps and Pol Pot's regime, millions of people, innocent people were killed by those regimes," he said.
About 9 million persons, including 6 million Jews, died in Hitler's death camps, 2.7 million persons died in Stalin's gulags and 1.7 million Cambodians died in Pol Pot's scourge of his country.
No prisoners have died at Guantanamo. NONE!
To compare treatment by guards at Guantanamo Bay to "concentration camps and Pol Pot's regime is simply reprehensible," White House spokesman Scott McClellan. "I just think those remarks are reprehensible and they are a real disservice to our men and women in uniform. Our men and women in uniform go out of their way to treat detainees humanely, and they go out of their way to uphold the values and the laws we hold so dear to our country."
Dick Durbin has not even seen the prision camp, yet he makes shrill comments about it as IF he knows what he's talking about. He doesn't!
Here's what Durbin had to say in 1998 when Clinton bombed the crap out of Iraq.

"The attack against this dictator should come as no surprise. The record clearly shows that he has harassed American and United Nations inspectors, ordered the destruction of important documents in anticipation of inspections and hampered the ability of inspectors to carry out their mission. His defiant protection of his weapons of mass destruction cannot go unanswered. I call on those who question the motives of the president and his national security advisors to join with the rest of America in presenting a united front to our enemies abroad.”
~ Statement issued by Democrat U.S. Senator Dick Durbin, December 17, 1998, when Democrat President Bill Clinton was contemplating action against Iraq, as quoted from www.senate.gov in yesterday's Chairman's Update by the Illinois Republican Party. Senator Durbin is now a vocal opponent of Republican President George Bush's action in Iraq.
The arrogant and hypocritical Mr. Durbin is the latest in a series of Democrats including Howard Dean and Hillary Clinton (see Exploding Democrats below) who's absolute hatred of being out of power in all three branches of government has gotten the better of them, and their tongues. His lashing out against the war is not doing him or his party any favors and certainly has given terrorists' more fuel to keep their attacks on our troops. Durbin has refused to apologize for his anti-American comments.
Durbin should be rejected by Illinois voters, to whom their home president Abraham Lincoln must be rolling in his grave at the senator's inflammatory demagoguery against the troops.
The democrats sound like little brats who can't play nice, using foul language and childish name calling on recess to pick fights with. Who's side are the democrats on anyway?
Pentagon spokesman Larry DiRita commented Thursday that Durbin may want to see the prison before he criticizes it.
"Anyone who would make such outlandish comments has an obligation to visit the facility at Guantanamo Bay. Our records suggest Senator Durbin has never been there. He may also want to visit the memorials to the victims of Pol Pot and Stalin and then decide if he wants to live the rest of his life with that comment," DiRita said.
All democrats ever do is whine and complain about everything without giving one shred of sound advice because they have literally no ideas at all that will help America. They are the ones who lead us into this war in the first place by doing nothing about Osama bin Laden or Saddam Hussein or Kim Jong IL except to antagonize and appease them more while they had power during the 1990's. Is it any wonder why they will likely be in the minority for decades to come?
Democrats are indeed the do nothing party of obstruction and it seems they are fighting themselves to see who can be the worst!
