Olbermann: Special comment about ‘sacrifice’

If in your presence an individual tried to sacrifice an American serviceman or woman, would you intervene?

Would you at least protest?

What if he had already sacrificed 3,003 of them?

What if he had already sacrificed 3,003 of them — and was then to announce his intention to sacrifice hundreds, maybe thousands, more?

This is where we stand tonight with the BBC report of President Bush’s “new Iraq strategy,” and his impending speech to the nation, which, according to a quoted senior American official, will be about troop increases and “sacrifice.”

The president has delayed, dawdled and deferred for the month since the release of the Iraq Study Group.

He has seemingly heard out everybody, and listened to none of them.

If the BBC is right — and we can only pray it is not — he has settled on the only solution all the true experts agree cannot possibly work: more American personnel in Iraq, not as trainers for Iraqi troops, but as part of some flabby plan for “sacrifice.”

Sacrifice!

More American servicemen and women will have their lives risked.

More American servicemen and women will have their lives ended.

More American families will have to bear the unbearable and rationalize the unforgivable —“sacrifice” — sacrifice now, sacrifice tomorrow, sacrifice forever.

And more Americans — more even than the two-thirds who already believe we need fewer troops in Iraq, not more — will have to conclude the president does not have any idea what he’s doing.......


The complete " special comment " which was done by Keith Olbermann on Jan 2 can be read at the above address. Tonight, Jan 11, Keith has delivered yet another powerful and right on target " special comment ", referencing " The Decider's " speech yesterday. These are exactly the kinds of things that need to be said, over and over, loudly, until this country fully wakes up, and puts a stop to Bushes madness. Given a chance, Bush will go after Iran, and finally bring events to a point of no return in the middle east. If he does this, US credibility with essentially the whole rest of the world will evaporate from the enemic state it currently holds. Good man Keith, this country sorely needs people like you, not afraid to say what needs to be said! I will post the web address here for the content of Keith's " special comment " this evening, when it comes up at the MSNBC site.
