Be Careful What You Wish For

Captain's Quarters has managed to put themselves in the "Stupid Hole" with this one:

The argument coming from Carter and others is that we need to support democracy, including when people make choices for terrorism. In those instances, we should forget our own national interest and act as if the Palestinians had no idea that Hamas bombs women and children in pizzerias and buses and loudly proclaims its desire to annihilate the state of Israel. It's a ludicrous position and one that holds people in contempt. Why not acknowledge the choice that the Palestinians have made, freely and openly as Carter has certified? They have chosen poorly -- and removing the consequences of that choice will only allow them to continue to choose poorly in the future.

The "we need to support democracy" flapjaw also emanates from the current occupant of the White House, folks. Goes back to WoodHead Wilson (who, according to the History Channel, was also a sworn racist vis-a-vis integrating the US military.)

CQ would have done well to simply shut up--or to be more forthright: 'if you don't vote the way WE want, then you can go to Hell, and we have a military which is capable of sending you there, immediately.'

Then let's have Congress vote to declare a war.
