Reid: Bush Must Halt Slaying of Terrorist Leaders

by Scott Ott

(2007-05-01) — As unconfirmed news broke that the chief of al-Qaeda in Iraq may have been killed in a battle with a rival terror group, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid called on President George Bush to step in and halt the slaying of terror leaders.

“It’s a known fact that every time a terror leader is killed, another rises to take his place,” said Sen. Reid. “Therefore, the only way to stop the spawning of new terror leaders is to halt the slaying of the current ones.”

The Nevada Democrat said Mr. Bush should petition the United Nations to send in an unarmed peacekeeping force to protect the known terror leaders from accidental or intentional execution by Iraqi and U.S. forces, as well as by their own colleagues in the terror industry.

“If these guys keep getting knocked off,” Sen. Reid said, “how will we ever build relationships that lead to negotiations and peace treaties? The longer a terror leader stays at the helm, the more we can get to know him. When Democrats talk about bringing stability to the region, this is what we mean.”

That is probably the most incredibly stupid thing, and there have been many that I’ve heard Harry ‘the realtor’ Reid say.

The sickest thing about Scrappleface headlines is I don’t know they’re false until I read the origin of the headline. I could definitely envision Reid saying this in some context.

I dunno, maybe because Harry Reid is such a bloomin' idiot. I admit, I missed the Scrappleface thing myself, and thought it was genuine.

Reid actually said this?

I knew he was a pathetic partisan hack...but this tells me he really is ate up with the goofies.

Every time we defeat a democrat, a new one rises to take his place.

Therefore we must stop defeating democrats.

On the other hand....

Everytime the democrats defeat a Republican, the Republicans send a new one.

Therefore the democrats must stop defeating Republicans.

But...

Everytime someone dies, a new person gets born, therefore we have to stop dying.

and...

Everytime someone retires from a company, a new person takes his/her place. Therefore people have to stop retiring.

and it should be noted that....

Everytime someone buys a loaf of bread the store puts a new one on shelf - so everyone should stop buying bread.

and finally....

Everytime you eat you then have to go to the bathroom....need I say more?

Dingy Harry has not learned the lesson of, "Better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to speak up and remove all doubt."

Why do voters put utter fools into office?

It’s a joke -

but like all good humor, it has a basis in truth.

Yes, I had to look to see that it was from Scrappleface before I confirmed that Reid hadn’t actually said something this incredibly “liberal”.

Everytime the democrats defeat a Republican, the Republicans send a new one.

How about: "Every time the Democrats defeat a Republican, the rest of the Republicans start trying to be Democrats."

Of course, since 1995 or thereabouts, the Republicans have been acting like Democrats anyway.

Btw, you did notice that the article was a satire? They really ought to print satire in a different font or something, because it really is hard to distinguish satire from reality when Harry Reid is involved.

The Mods have got to start requiring that any Scrappleface headline contain a (humor) or (satire) notice in the headline.
Too many people are getting fooled by him because he’s so close to the truth.

There are two side’s, right and wrong. “I know GB is stating this as I type. Anyway, Reid is on the wrong side, as is any other politico who is towing the line of the left.

Reid IS siding with terrorists...think not, OK read the article.

Pay attention and get motivated.

Yeah Harry, YOU’VE been around quite a long time and we’re getting to know you REAL well. It’s time YOU said goodbye.

This guy is THE definition of the word MORON.

They have NO idea who we’re all up against. Not a clue.

Again, I thought this was real until I noticed the Scrappleface byline. The Democrats really have gone so far off the deep end that they are self-parodies, so actual parodies are harder and harder to spot...
