Democrats Detail Security Policy

WaPo reported Among the proposals in the "Real Security" plan: eliminate bin Laden and his al-Qaeda terrorist network,
Bush has done a very good job eliminating his terrorist network, and we know where Bin Laden is: he is in Pakistan, and the President of Pakistan is doing his best in that lawless area to find him, but if we send our forces into Pakistan it will cause his government to fail, and the Islamists will take over. Exactly what do the Democrats say they will do? Invade Pakistan? This will result in a Islamic Government that has Nuclear Weapons. Do the Dumbocrats really want that?
implement in full the recommendations of the Sept. 11 commission,
Bush is implementing all of them that would not hurt America's security. But I guess the Dumbocrats dont really care about that, and want to implement them all.
and work to make 2006 a year of "significant transition" in Iraq.
Which is exactly Bush's plan.
On terrorism, the Democrats call for doubling the size of U.S. Special Forces and eliminating terrorist breeding grounds by "combating the economic, social and political conditions that allow extremism to thrive."
How do we do that? Send huge amounts of money into many foreign nations. What domestic social programs are they willing to eliminate in order to afford to do that?
Democrats have been badly divided over Iraq. The new strategy urges Iraqis to assume responsibility for their own security,
That is exactly the Bush plan
recommends "responsible redeployment" of U.S. forces without specifying a timetable
Do you think the loony left will accept not specifying a timetable?
and blames the administration for poor planning and manipulating prewar intelligence.
They could have not done better, and based on what Clinton did during his eight years in the White House, they would have done a lot worse.
The statement contains language -- voiced by Pelosi, Reid and others yesterday -- that the Democrats' security agenda will be both "tough and smart" in contrast to the "dangerous incompetence" the Bush administration has shown -- language that has been tested by the Democrats in anticipation of the fall campaign.
If you don't have a plan, call the opposition names.
