A little something for you to think about when you vote...

Here, we have a clip (you'll need Windows Media Player) on MEMRI TV of Hezbollah boss Hassan Nasrullah talking about how he's sure America is going to retreat:

"We consider the resistance in Iraq, or in any occupied country - and there is no doubt that Iraq is an occupied country – to be legitimate resistance, which is justified and appropriate. This is the appropriate course, which may lead to the liberation of Iraq, and we support and endorse this resistance. But we definitely distinguish between military operations that target the occupation forces and the operations, which we term criminal, that target innocent Iraqi people, and that shed blood under illegitimate slogans.

... I am one of those people who see a very clear picture. In our childhood... When we were young boys... I cannot forget the sight of the American forces leaving Vietnam in helicopters, which carried their officers and soldiers. Some Vietnamese, who had fought alongside the Americans, tried to climb into these helicopters, but the [Americans] threw them to the ground, abandoned them, and left. This is the sight I anticipate in our region, but I am not saying it will happen in months. It will take years. The Americans will gather their belongings and leave this region - the entire region. They have no future whatsoever in our region. They will leave the Middle East, and the Arab and Islamic worlds, like they left Vietnam. I advise all those who place their trust in the Americans to learn the lesson of Vietnam...."

Think about this cockroach and what he had to say when you vote.

By the way, if any of you are interested in Weekend Monkey and my handicapping of the elections, it can be found here.

...and America still brought Russia to her knees. Just as we will the jihadists.

The Cold War proved that the vanguished will be defeated from within. How many wars one fights thousands of miles from one's homeland doesn't make the decisive factor.
