What Goyette doesn't comprehend is that Radio is a business. I stopped listening to the guy a long time ago, and obviously many others did to.

I contacted the station, which is a rare thing for me to do, to vociferiously protest Goyette's stupid positions about the anti-terrorist actions the US was taking.

The biggest problem I've got with anti-war folks like Goyette is they treat it like it was just another domestic political position. Something you can endlessly argue about.

But war is different. Once committed to war (and the use of force WAS authorized by Congress - so no BS about the Congress not "declaring" war), any decent citizen should support the war 100%, or leave the country.

The effect on the families of service members killed ought to be enough to prevent these people from turning War into a political football.

But even more important, the effect on the enemey to encurage his continued resistance, and encuraging the enemey to believe that internal US politics could "win" the war for him, as it did for Vietnam, should make the actions of a radio guy like Goyette, treason.

Comparing an era where wars were fought exclusively by nation-states, using military formations, with our current dilemma is less than useful. Enough nerve gas to kill everyone in Times Square might fit in one barrel. 9/11 killed thousands and did billions of dollars in damage without using any military equipment at all.

I have to admit I've not been listening to the Goyette for quite a while. He's a bilge for every Phoenix conspiracy to come down the pike.

I emailed the chickboss and asked her to put Tony Snow on in his place.

I did a search. Promise!

I searched on "lose your job", and looked for the recent postings and this didn't show up.

Maybe I didn't go back far enough?

Anyway, it's a topic this AM on KFYI

The actions on 9/11 were taken by people who were supported by nation-states. Afghanistan specifically. And Iraq as well (training sites, and money to terrorist organizations).

I agree with the Bush doctrine of treating nation-states that support terrorists, as terrorists themselves. That's the only long term solution we have, and it seems to be working.

You may want to send him this quote:

"When you men get home and face an anti-war protester, look him in the eyes and shake his hand. Then, wink at his girlfriend, because she knows she's dating a pussy." -- U.S.General Tommy Franks (Central Command Iraq)

Hahahaha

Not a big deal. The other posts are a couple days old. Posts are pulled, it seems, only when they are stacked on top of each other or within a few hours of each other.

I just wanted to link to the other one so people could see the other responses. The search seems to go wonky on me at times too.

That being said, I'm one of those loathed "anti-Iraqi war conservatives", but this guy sounds like a big baby.

I am one as well. But he doesn't mention what is most important. His ratings. If he had good ratings he would have an argument. But if they were slipping then he doesn't have a leg to stand on.

The problem is, had your position won the domestic political battle after troops were engaged, then the US loses the war. Soldiers who died, did so in vain. Not because of a victorious enemy, but because of politics.

Once the balloon goes up, I think it's treason to act politically against the war.

Before the balloon goes up, fine. But not after.

It is just me, or does this guy come across as truly in love with himself? He seriously should consult a Psychiatrist.
