Cone has a post up on an agenda item from Blue NC, about those horrible, miscreant "mercenaries" at Blackwater, and their role in that evil, empire-building Illegal War in Iraq, started by BushCo, so his cronies could profit.
Apparently, these people at Blue NC think they can demagogue this issue into some kind of a political advantage.
Look at the garbage posted at Cone's by "James":
"Businesses that engage in "wrong" deserve to be vilified, in my opinion, as part of the effort to change laws. I'm sure their are some decent people at Blackwater, but they are in a business that succeeds by perpetuating armed conflict."
And at the Blue NC site itself, we have this from "James":
"Walter Jones has been complicit in Black water's war profiteering. For all his so-called family values and God-fearing patriotism, Jones is apparently lost in the wilderness when it comes to understanding the realities of war."
Next , we are sure to hear the argument that funding and sanctioning Blackwater is the moral equivalency of funding a terrorist group.
To his credit, Obama is lot smarter than these would-be supporters of his. He understands the mission and the necessity for an outfit like Blackwater.
The Blackwater "issue" is just one more excuse for our Dem/Lefty/"Progressive" friends to get themselves all worked up into the orgiastic agenda frenzy that so often passes as "discussion of policy".
Here's Cone's contribution to the tired old bromide "America The Evil, for Invading Iraq" meme that's becoming so boring to read about.
Must have been a slow day on the "Defend Mitch/Robbie" team, along with the "Wray the Untrustworthy Liar/Racist" front, and the "We're All So Screwed Because It's Gonna Be a HUGE Recession so Vote for the Dems" meme.
As well we know, these are all favorite little themes our pal Ed likes to posture with.
