This woman is shameless
Posted by: McQ on Saturday, May 12, 2007

Nancy Pelosi politicizing "Mother's Day":
Women have always been the peacekeepers of our societies. When I became the first woman Speaker of the House this year, I was honored to assume this position and humbled by the responsibility it brought. Nothing in my life will ever compare to being a mother - not being a Member of Congress; not being Speaker of the House. But I am thankful that I have the opportunity to bring my experience as a mother to this position. When I traveled to the Middle East last month in search for diplomacy and peace, I was there as Speaker of the House. But I was also there as a mother, carrying Julia Ward Howe's message. When I cast my vote yesterday for an end to the war in Iraq, I did so as a Member of Congress. But my vote was also taken as a mother of five and grandmother of six.

Mothers have always been the peacekeepers of society? I’ll leave the sexism (though it seems that most of the time that’s acceptable sexism.) and the asinine assumption that peacekeeping is always a desirable role alone and wonder instead how people like Catharine the Great, Empress Maude/Queen Matilda, Margaret Thatcher, Queen Isabella II, the Empress Dowager Cixi didn’t get that particular memo. And that’s just off the top of my head...

I thought she was carrying a message from Olmert. Now she says it was from Julia Ward Howe. Kind of an old message to bring with her....

Really?

I guess that only works, if you consider that a military standing ready isn’t a peacekeeper. Go ahead, Nancy, and tell us how you support the troops.

Indeed, to my mind, military readiness is the only real peace keeper. Peace through superior firepower, and all that. It is certainly not a shock to my system, that she gets this one exactly backwards.

You guys can talk all the history, logic, etc. you want, but my Mom and probably most others would be nodding her head to Pelosi’s thoughts.

Sheeeshhh....if ever there were a standard bearer for the ’Nanny State’. My guess is her solution to Iraq would be for everyone to be subject to a ’time out’ so we can sit and ponder all the awful things we say and do. Then we start over—but no hitting, yelling or fighting or you miss dessert! Uh-huh...that’ll work.

Pelosi’s elevation to SoH is clear evidence to me that the Left is unhinged....and dangerous. I used to sit back and laugh at these nutjobs and their blather, but now the inmates are running the asylum (literally). None of us can afford to discount anything these people say or do because they seem to be able to convince others to give away their freedoms a little too easily.

Looks like she got Howard Dean’s memo on how to politicize Mother’s Day.
When I cast my vote yesterday for an end to the war in Iraq, I did so as a Member of Congress. But my vote was also taken as a mother of five and grandmother of six.
I find this part interesting. I’ll give the Democratic leadership some credit for putting forth this legislation to end the war in Iraq. Everyone knows this was doomed to failure but it gives Pelosi et al. some handy political cover. They can report back to the netroots that they tried to put a stop to the war but there wasn’t enough support for it. Now they can get down to some real negotiations since they’ve done “everything they could” to outright end the war.

I’m the mother of four.

Pelosi is a twit.

Mothers are protectors, mama bears, and alpha wolves. As the last line of defense of our young, yes, we send the men out ahead because if we die there will be no one else.

It’s reflected in the way we fight. Masculine is honor and jostling for rank and place. Feminine is scorched earth.

Civilization tames us all, but anyone who thinks that feminine and motherhood is peaceful or that "feminist" is anti-war is a fool.

Or at the very least, a twit.

Seriously? The only? Hmmmmm.... Somehow I think it is superior firepower that allowed an overconfident administration into a war that could’ve been avoided with diplomacy. You ever heard of that word, diplomacy? Averted quite a number of wars by the way, that diplomacy stuff.

Yeah and it wasn’t working with Iraq. They had 10 years to get rid of the Husseins and demonstrate that they had abandoned any pan-Arabic ambitions, and they didn’t. When it started looking like they were going to get to sell their oil on the free market again (the assumption being they would have used the revenue to militarise with weapons from China/USSR), something had to be done.

The purpose of diplomacy is NOT avoiding wars. The purpose of diplomacy is to advance your country’s interests....sometimes that leads to war.

Diplomacy worked sooooooo well for Neville Chamberlain.

*This* war couldn’t have been won with diplomacy. Steverino has it right. Diplomacy isn’t peacemaking. Diplomacy is advancing your country’s interests. Our interests were not advanced.

Simply put.

Our interests were degraded and undercut during the 10 years of "diplomacy" with Saddam. Going backwards, even slowly, is not a win. Though we weren’t going backward slowly. By playing by the rules during Desert Storm, keeping to the immediate problem of pushing Saddam back but not going beyond that UN mandate, we failed our county’s interests. Following up with "diplomacy" did not even marginally advance our interests. It amazes me that no one seems to remember the hatred and accusations that the US got for it’s troubles during those years after playing nice and letting Saddam live. No one remembers, and it wasn’t that long ago. Oh how the world hated us! How many Iraqi deaths were laid at our feet, directly at the feet of the US, how many children there died in horrible agony because of America and her Satanic evil, while Saddam built palaces, his sons built rape rooms, and the UN took a slice of diverted food aid and called itself the moral authority, virtue defined.

And no one remembers.

No one remembers outrage about weapons grade chlorine. No one remembers the moral weight of all those dead babies.

Because sanctions, diplomacy, was *working*.

It’s like a religion.

I don’t think anyone can argue that diplomacy was working....the west had no option but to pre-empt the possibility of a re-armed Iraq..
