When the duly elected, permanent government of a fully free and independent Iraq formally tells us "we don't need your help anymore, U.S., thanks" — that means we've won this third major battle of World War IV.
attlefields can be chosen, forced on one side by the other; or abandoned altogether, left totally to the victorious side by a retreating, losing one. I would rather our nation's career politicians leave the former in the much more capable hands of her military leaders, than ever force on them the latter choice, and on us what would only spell our ultimate defeat in this war.
Taking any kind of defensive stance against an enemy who says "We love death while you love life — that's the difference between us," and not taking each battlefield to his doorstep and past it into his very home instead of ours, is not the way to totally and unconditionally defeat that enemy. Nor will we be the victors in this World War if we abandon battlefields before we're absolutely sure we've won them. Our enemy is a master of the waiting game, relying on what he believes are our spectacular weaknesses of character — an implacable impatience for immediate results and the inevitable loss of confidence, internal bickering, numerous blamefests, and burying of heads in self-created sands of shiftless yet false senses of security whenever such results are not forthcoming; all stemming from an inordinate dependence on, and overly frequent, self-centered demands for "normalcy" — to cause us to embrace retreat then finally defeat all by ourselves after only a few large, demeaning attacks against civilian-only targets. Then our enemy will MoveOn to chipping away at the remaining shells of our civilization until even that is gone and he can get to sucking out its very yoke and replacing it with his dream of a 1000-year, islanimalistic reich of holocaustic fascism. It explains his consistency in confidently predicting that our side will lose.
As foolish as he may think we are, our enemy knows he cannot beat civilization without real, conscious help from the inside. Unfortunately for its common members, all he need do is spend an hour or so perusing CNN and other Left Wing Media to rekindle every hope he ever had of finding that help. Thomas Cadmus, American Legion's National Commander, puts it this way:
- Public protests against the war here at home while our young men and women are in harm's way on the other side of the globe only provide aid and comfort to our enemies.
Understand that the terrorists they are engaging there would slit the throats of every American, adult and child, if they could....
No one respects the right to protest more than one who has fought for it, but we hope that Americans will present their views in correspondence to their elected officials rather than by public media events guaranteed to be picked up and used as tools of encouragement by our enemies.
It would be tragic if the freedoms our veterans fought so valiantly to protect would be used against their successors today as they battle terrorists bent on our destruction. Let's not repeat the mistakes of our past.
I urge all Americans to rally around our armed forces and remember our fellow Americans who were viciously murdered on Sept. 11, 2001. We must commit ourselves to stand united together to defeat terrorism once and forever.
Although this war practically started in 1993 when al-Qaeda homicide-bombed the World Trade Center's garage, killing six Americans, injuring over a thousand more, and decimating seven stories of its North Tower, and escalated each time it murdeoursly bombed our overseas interests, it was not until four years ago when this multistate-sponsored terrorist organization attacked us a second (if not third) time on our own soil that we came to believe we are at war. Now that we've finally decided to fight to end it, liberals are the ones who want us to stop, far short of our sealing the complete and lasting victory required against this enemy. They and their cohorts in academia and the media, moreover, are doing everything in their increasingly feeble powers to make it stop now — including hindering the country's war efforts by undermining, at every opportunity, our troops' missions abroad and Americans' morale here at home. In other words, "Treason against the United States...[consisting] in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort." I believe there are, even among SeeSpinSpin's rapidly decreasing viewership, much more than two witnesses who may testify to their overtly treasonous acts, which is necessary for any conviction.
The more benign libressives/progerals could, conceivably, plead permanent insanity when hauled into federal court for their treason against our nation. They only wanted, after all, to be sensitive to issues facing the misunderstood Terrorist-NonAmerican community and to not offend, stereotype, maginalize, or anger any of its members in any way by ever referring to them as "terrorists" or "bad" guys, or subjecting them to any possible form of discrimination (such as hunting them down like disease-carrying fleas on a rabid dog and
bringing to justice killing their worthless mass-murdering, goat-molesting selves). The former are so progressivy (Diversinazi is probably the more accurate term) they believe even the latter should be part of their extremist Marxian ideal of an omnipresent, solely secular collectivist system — forcibly imposed on all of us by any and all non pro-choice means possible (e.g., unelected activist judges) — which completely eviscerates traditional morals values and replaces them with their New Morality®, one based entirely on such emotional-only feel-goodisms as absolute tolerance, race- and gender-based entitlements, mandatory inclusiveness, social justice, sanctions which enforce "changed attitudes," the individual's total dependence on a nanny government's beneficence, multicultural apartheid, ethnic diversity, and other demagogic tactics calculated to divide and conquer each and every imaginable sector of independent-minded opposition they may encounter before it even has a chance to effectively coalesce (also known as liberals' design for absolute, unchallengeable, undemocratic control over all our lives). So, for these progerals, it's really about the insanity that terrorists would, if afforded the opportunity and were asked nicely, happily march into required conflict-resolution and sexual-harassment classes and come out behaving and sounding like every other libressive; or, in the alternative, a wholly misguided effort to recruit these potential liberals, if you will, to their chronically depleting number. At least they stopped short of thinking feeling there needs to be a Terrorist History Month.
But for malignant leftists of the Miqey Terrorists-R-Minutemen Moor and Dicky Troops-R-PolPot Turban variety, whose conscious, willful deceits are purposefully meant to not only hamper our nation's war efforts but bring about her humiliating defeat, there is no defense whatsoever. Regrettably, hanging or a firing squad is much too good for such traitors. Justice would be served, instead, by air dropping all of them somewhere in the deepest, darkest regions of Tora Bora, nearest as possible to their comrade Oswina Bint Laden's last known location, and time how long it takes before each one's head is added to the surround decorating the entryway to that terrorist's favorite cave. No matter what plain fact or sound reasoning is thrown at their pointy, sand-buried yet still-attached heads, these people will always work to harm our national security, believing it their only real chance to gain for themselves even some marginal influence and power. Thus for purely self-interested reasons, they have chosen to be those internal enemies that Pig Laden is betting his whole
farm cave on to beat us.
To this end, Iraq has become both the liberals and the terrorists' rallying cry in this war. Both want us out and are fighting fang and claw to make us leave. Oscuma just laughs. He knows that Iraq can be either his network's greatest loss or, with that help from liberals on which he's hoping, its greatest victory against Evil America (©1974-2005, al'Qaedacrats). Therefore he must give his unwitting and not so unwitting allies within our borders — inside both the Dhimmicratic Party and its embedded newsrooms and editorial boards — a steady enough stream of U.S. troop casualties to overshadow all progress we're actually making in Iraq and lower the morale and resolve of America's regular citizens, all of whom he's declared his enemy. The moment the latter too start demanding our retreat from Iraq, Pig Laden has won.
For this reason many of us who do not relish such ignominious defeat for our troops and the country they unselfishly serve, demand that their accomplishments — not their casualty counts — be afforded the full recognition all those ultimate sacrifices of theirs have undeniably earned. In newsroom parlance, it's known as context. We keep hearing about how many have died: that infamous one-sided scoreboard plastered across CBSMsNBCABCCNNETAL's full screen space with ne'er a peep about the number of subhuman slime that our fallen brave heroes have helped send in the opposite direction from where they're headed. But what about what those heroes have done and were doing when they died? How many schools and hospitals did they help reopen? How many vital water and oil pipelines did they help repair? Have you ever heard one CNN reporter interviewing any of The Children in Iraq and their families whom these brave men and women rescued from unbearable life under a total dictatorship and likely death under a mass grave, or whose lives after Iraq's liberation were individually touched by their numerous kind words and deeds and selfless acts of assistance? As it has been throughout history, men and women in uniform not just live but pretty much make the history we read about and know. It is more the actions of those under command of a Douglas MacArthur than a Cordell Hull that we most assiduously appreciate. The former put their lives literally on the line to ensure our country's defense and promote throughout the world the causes of democracy, justice, and freedom. Their accomplishments, without which there would be no freedom of speech or of the press for anyone — nor any of the other privileges and immunities we too often take for granted — deserve as much heartfelt support from all citizens, including in terms of our ink and airtime, as any we might give them personally. This is especially true with regard to what they're accomplishing in Iraq, the frontline of freedom right now against the world's mass-murdering, fanatically fascist islamoterrorists.
Among those firmly making this demand in the face of leftists' overtly enemy-aiding and enemy-comforting acts, is Christopher Hitchens. His Weekly Standard article "A War to Be Proud Of" shows our troops' accomplishments in Iraq are exceedingly capable of raising the hopes of everyone who loves freedom, and the despair of anyone whose hearts now brim with hatred over those accomplishments. Malignant leftists, in particular, remain hard pressed to justify their own hates:
- Two pieces of good fortune still attend those of us who go out on the road for this urgent and worthy cause. The first is contingent: There are an astounding number of plain frauds and charlatans (to phrase it at its highest) in charge of the propaganda of the other side. Just to tell off the names is to frighten children more than Saki ever could: Michael Moore, George Galloway, Jacques Chirac, Tim Robbins, Richard Clarke, Joseph Wilson . . . a roster of gargoyles that would send Ripley himself into early retirement. Some of these characters are flippant, and make heavy jokes about Halliburton, and some disdain to conceal their sympathy for the opposite side. So that's easy enough.
The second bit of luck is a certain fiber displayed by a huge number of anonymous Americans. Faced with a constant drizzle of bad news and purposely demoralizing commentary, millions of people stick out their jaws and hang tight. I am no fan of populism, but I surmise that these citizens are clear on the main point: It is out of the question — plainly and absolutely out of the question — that we should surrender the keystone state of the Middle East to a rotten, murderous alliance between Baathists and bin Ladenists. When they hear the fatuous insinuation that this alliance has only been created by the resistance to it, voters know in their intestines that those who say so are soft on crime and soft on fascism. The more temperate anti-warriors, such as Mark Danner and Harold Meyerson, like to employ the term "a war of choice." One should have no problem in accepting this concept. As they cannot and do not deny, there was going to be another round with Saddam Hussein no matter what. To whom, then, should the "choice" of time and place have fallen? The clear implication of the antichoice faction — if I may so dub them — is that this decision should have been left up to Saddam Hussein. As so often before . . .
Given how Deadduckorats have melded themselves solidly to this fraudulent, treasonous bunch, is it a wonder that in poll after poll the electorate has concluded they cannot be trusted with this nation's security or that of her citizens? Moreover, the Dodoratic Party acts as if it considers liberating oppressed peoples a political inconvenience, believing it much better to leave them at the mercy of murderous enemy dictators than ever risk offending its No War At Any Cost base.
Dumberats' untrustworthiness is further highlighted by the fact that, in 2000, one of our military's intelligence units, code-named Able Danger, tried to hand over to the FBI information it had gathered on at least one foreign terrorist leader who was operating inside our country, and who twelve months year later crashed a hijacked civilian passenger jet into the North Tower of the World Trade Center. But Qlinton-Gory Maladministration lawyers, more concerned with protecting the "constitutional rights" of foreign terrorists than the American people, had forbidden any sharing of information on non-citizens between military and civilian agencies. So al-Qlinton lip-protrudedly mouthing the line "I'm taking the terrorist treat seriously" was just another of his lies — and 2,738 of our fellow citizens and 236 of our country's guests died.
Fortunately, Deadbrainorats never learn anything from any of their miserable failures; which means no one need ever worry about any of them gaining anytime in this millennium the trust of enough independent voters to ever hold any public office of perceivable consequence anywhere in this country. As Doug Patton points out, they just keep pretending, in effect, that every calendar maker in the universe permanently closed up shop after releasing their 1974 product:
- Tapping into a brain trust consisting of such Democrat hotshots as Stan Greenberg, Bob Shrum and James Carville, this organization [The Democracy Corps] has managed to do what Democrats always do so well: spend lots of money to produce a study that states the obvious, only to create flawed strategies drawn from inaccurate conclusions. Their brilliant hypothesis this time: Democrats are losing elections. The reason: red state voters are failing to understand the moral values of the Democrat Party.
It is hard to imagine why their agenda is not resonating with the American people. After all, Democrats stand for so many things Americans hold dear, things like: purging all references to God from the public square; coddling violent criminals while banning the ownership of handguns by law-abiding citizens; the redistribution of wealth from those who have earned it to those who have not; capitulation to our terrorist enemies abroad; the surrender of American sovereignty to a corrupt world body (the U.N.); homosexual marriage; abortion on demand right up to the moment of birth; and the seizing of private property for commercial use if it produces more tax revenue for their precious government coffers.
What civic-minded American wouldn't support a sensible agenda like that?
Will loyal citizens ever trust Dhimmicrats? (I won't say "again.") The answer is yes. But only when pigs start flying through blizzards in Hades and islamofascist terrorists begin viewing retreat or concessions as anything but a sign of cowardice or foolish weakness.
Will we ever leave Iraq? Again, yes. But only when we've won.
