Outrage: DNC Ad Shows U.S. Soldiers Being Blown Up
NewsMax ^ | 4-28-08 | Jim Meyers

Posted on 04/28/2008 7:51:15 PM PDT by smoothsailing

The Democratic National Committee has sparked outrage among veterans and others across the internet by running an anti-John McCain ad that shows U.S. soldiers being blown up.

After the new ad’s voice-over castigated McCain for suggesting that the United States may stay in Iraq for “maybe 100” years, the footage becomes shocking.

McCain deserves what ever the DNC gives him.

This should show the people just what POS these people are at the DNC.

The DNC wouldn’t be as vile and repugnant as this ad shows them to be if there weren’t millions of people in this country who support them, and that is what is truely frightening.

Don’t worry - I’m sure McCain will admonish them just like he did North Carolina Republicans.

Re...You can see the DNC ad Click Here Now

I don't think your link is working.

I have two daughters and a son-in-law in uniform, and this otherwise "strong" vet would not be able to look at the link, anyway.

The Democrats sound the depths of treachery and depravity on a daily basis.

How do such America-hating, military-hating, troop mission and morale-undermining people sleep at night?

Clearly, these Democrats have no idea just how good they have it in this wonderful country; and, they are clueless as to how desperately miserable THEY would be, if they ever reach their Marxist, collectivist "Utopian" goals.

I did not say he deserved what he got as a POW.

But the way he has treated Conservatives he deserves whatever the Liberals who he loves throw at him.

Our troops, their families do not however deserve this type of low life action by the Nazi’s at the DNC.

Well, Al Quaeda uses the same shots to advance their agenda, why not the DNC?

Those same shots have convinced DNC that we are losing and cannot win, maybe it will work in the election too.

Mcllort already thinks he's on the right. So I doubt he'd ever move to a place he considers extreme and out of touch with reality.

I didn’t use this to bash McCain, but with all of the ASS kissing to the scum on the other side of the ailse he has been doing the last 8 years all because he didn’t win, well he does deserve what ever they at the DNC do to him.

It is said that the families of these brave men will be hurt more by this.

But, Mccain needs to recant his Socialist ways and move back to his roots if he ever was a conservative.

While he was a hero in viet-Nam he has slamed conservatives every chance he gets and not a word is said about his Liberal pals.

Well guess what Juan McCain, wake up and smell the coffee.

How morally and intellectually vacant to oppose the war for the reason that it involves casualties. The DNC is pure anti war, anti military. Any war.

“THEY WILL PAY FOR THIS! Every veterans organization and every service member, veteran & their family members need to write letters to the DNC and the networks that are airing this despicable ad!”

said to say that this isn’t what will happen. Look how many Generals support Obama and Hillery.

Most of them are only in this for the money. I’ll bet not one of the generals supporting the Dems says one word.

I doubt if they will even pull the ad.

This is tit for tat.

> The footage appears similar to film taken by jihadists who videotape IED explosions that kill American combat troops. The jihadists place the video on the internet to tout their “kill Americans” campaign success. The Army estimates that more than 6,500 jihadist Web sites promote violence against America and American troops.

Thus illustrating the importance of getting involved in StarCMC’s War on Terror Smackdown.

Enlist here: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2000726/posts

These filthy Muslim Terrorists post their videos on YouTube, and then the filthy DNC get their grubby paws on them and convert these videos to their own filthy purposes.

Helluva way to fight a war.

I understood your response and agree he when it comes to treatment by the Dems he deserves whatever he gets. He has been an enabler on their behalf for several years, sort of a mini-Carter figure. I have great respect for John McCain, BUT I don't feel he is the best person to be our President. He is head and shoulders above the empty suits, pants or otherwise, the Dems are putting forth and I would support him over either Obama or Clinton. Having said that I then go on to say that I want a person in that office who feels, and says, and acts, like America, despite her flaws, is still the best nation and people on God's Earth! The standard for me will always be Ronald Reagan. Period. His willingness to call out the USSR as an evil empire, his firing of illegally striking government employees and his hasty departure from Iceland are but three examples of the attitude I want from my President. I don't want to hear how our adversaries have some valid points. Who cares?

Anyway, I understood your response. I can also see where others would not catch on to the nuances of your feelings.

I did before I posted and I stated that the families are the real victims here.

McCain has thought all along that his Socialist track would allow for a different type of election process. In the process of his being angry he trashed Conservatives.

Yes he has earned the scorn of the right and now he gets to feel the scorn of the left. The scorn they have always had for him.

They only liked him because he was trashing consevatives.

And this is the lowest of acts the Democrats could sink to, but it is who they are.

And McCain wants to govern with them as his left hand.

I don't think Americans are so stupid that they'll forget *who* is doing the blowing up, at least if they get a little reminder or two from some 527 or the RNC.

Hint: it's not McCain, it's not George Bush, and its not even Dick Cheney.

I’m pretty sure I know this video. The two soldiers were unhurt, though it certainly didn’t appear that would be the case when the explosion took place. That will be the DNC’s defense, wait for it.

It’s a trap.

1. Julius Caesar pointed out along time ago that the people are fickle. 2. The people have not been watching but this in prime time will wake allot of the “do it ‘cause my daddy did” democrats up to smell the BS. I have to believe that most Americans think in the same neighborhood as myself, that Kooktata al weenie boy couldn’t suffer enough in 100 years for that. In a sense they just produced the best torpedo to hit them in years and remember this is after the gift of Wright. Wow who would have thought this was in the bag back in ‘06!
