Over the past year or so the favorite phrase of the democrats regarding the war in Iraq usually has been a variation of “We are calling for a full redeployment of troops.” The term redeploy (or slight variations of it) as used by Democrats completely drives me up the wall and is the stupidest word I have heard used in a politics. And the funny thing is, the media never-ever calls them out it. What a bunch of hacks.
Redeploy, especially to those of us with military backgrounds, implies sending a deployed troop from one deployment to a different one; something like redeploying a troop from Iraq to Afghanistan. If it doesn’t conjur this view up, it makes us think a soldier is being deployed yet again after a short stint home. But does any soldier actually hear the term “redeployment” and think, “hey, that means I’m going home?” Probably not, at least not until it became a political buzz word for our anti-Iraq left.
Basically the term redeployment is a rouse. It is a cover term that carries far less political baggage that saying we are going tuck our tails, retreat, and run home in the face of even the slightest opposition. Certainly by using the term redeployment, it protects the dems politically. Most Americans don’t pay attention to where candidates actually stand, nor do they care (just look at the success of Obama); basically we allow uninformed ignorant people to choose our leaders. So the average voter hears the term redeployment and thinks, “oh they care about the troops and are going to bring them home in an honorable and militaristic fashion”, for the word redeployment sounds militaristic. What a bunch of suckers.
The thing that drives me nuts it that no one that I have seen, until this post, has called anyone out for it. Am I the only one that notices this? I feel like I’m taking crazy pills. It reminds of how no one seems to notice that the phrase “I could care less” makes absolutely no sense”. What is wrong with people? Anyway, let’s stop allowing the left a free pass for making up words (is redeploy even a word?) and then using them to try to con the people. In fact, we should call out people from whatever persuasion for doing this. We should demand that the lefties say what they mean and that is, “we need to surrender and bring are troops home now.” Hold their feet to the fire.
