Warmongering: Redux

Rosie has some great quotes today from Republicans who opposed Clinton when he committed troops to Bosnia in the 90's. My, how the chickens come home to roost.

“You can support the troops but not the president.” – Rep. Tom Delay (R-TX)

“Well, I just think it’s a bad idea. What’s going to happen is they’re
going to be over there for 10, 15, maybe 20 years.” – Joe Scarborough (R-FL)

“Explain to the mothers and fathers of American servicemen that may
come home in body bags why their son or daughter have to give up their
life?” – Sean Hannity, Fox News, 4/6/99

“[The] President . . . is once again releasing American military might
on a foreign country with an ill-defined objective and no exit
strategy. He has yet to tell the Congress how much this operation will
cost. And he has not informed our nation’s armed forces about how long
they will be away from home. These strikes do not make for a sound
foreign policy.” – Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA)

“If we are going to commit American troops, we must be certain they
have a clear mission, an achievable goal and an exit strategy.” – Karen Hughes, speaking on behalf of George W. Bush

“Victory means exit strategy, and it’s important for the President to
explain to us what the exit strategy is.” – Governor George W. Bush (R-TX)
