Debunking the Anti-War Left

August 11, 2006

Appeasement and negotiations with terrorists is a pipe dream of the left. Only armchair generals with little or no knowledge of what they talk about would even propose such a thing.

This war is not a video game where you click a mouse and kill your enemy. This is a battle unlike any other we have had to face. It is a serious delusion to think the terrorists will simply leave us alone if we leave them alone or that they can be bought off.

It has been said that the "comforts, freedoms and enlightenment" of the West is the best weapon against Terrorists. They already have the money to buy all the "comforts, freedoms and enlightenment" they may desire. Modernization is appealing to us in the West, but not to them. There is no tolerance in Islamofascists other than for their delusion of World Dominance and Allah is giving them the entire planet. Whether you realize it or not, it is those "comforts, freedoms and enlightenment" that they hate the most! It is a complete delusion of the left to think that offering them the very things they despise is the way to win in the War on Terror.

Recently two High School students in Dearborn Michigan were arrested for planning terrorist activities as well as 24 more were arrested in London for plotting a massive plan of suicide bombing of aircraft bound from the UK to the US. They had all the "comforts, freedoms and enlightenment" they could want at their disposal and yet, were willing to sacrifice it all for a deluded ideology of power and glory.

Polls matter little in this "comforts, freedoms and enlightenment," battle. As can be witnessed in the drive-by leftstream media and several left-winged blogs, many are deluded as to what and who we are fighting. What with the politicization of the War on Terror from a losing party trying to regain power, most haven’t a clue. Truth finds little regard when it comes to the anti-war left.

Iraq is not a diversion from the War on Terror, but a very necessary part of the overall War given that virtually the entire world said there were WMDs still there prior to our invasion. However, in the six month long rush to war, they were obviously spirited away, as stated by many who were there before we went in. Would you like to have it on your conscience that you did nothing to stop them from possibly falling into the hands of terrorists?

The claims from the left have been that they were never there. Yet, when over 500 canisters were revealed to have been found, the left comes back with "we knew all about them." “They weren’t the ones sought after.”

Which way is it? Where did the rest go? How could the entire world say and believe they were there, yet they are gone once we got there, six months later? Doesn’t take a rock scientist to figure that out. Still, WMDs were but one reason to invade Iraq.

It is still claimed that we aren’t gaining on the War on Terror because we have lost sight of the goal of capturing Osama Bin Laden and have diverted resources from Afghanistan to Iraq. There are still troops in Afghanistan, always have been since we went there. All the troops in the world chasing Osama won’t catch him in the mountainous region he chose to hide out in provided he is still alive. As seen with Zarqawi, catching Osama would not stop terrorism anyways. He is a mere figurehead and even if dead, others step in. This is not a battle against one man; it’s a battle against a misled and brutal ideology.

These misled Muslims have been attacking and killing each other and the Jews for centuries, it’s not new. As they have spread their terror outside the Middle East over the last decades, it’s long past due for the west to stand against them.

If you think "cut and run," excuse me, "redeployment" is the answer, you are dead wrong. If you think negotiation is the answer, you are dead wrong. These terrorists desire nothing from us, except our death, both liberal and conservative, Democrat and Republican. It’s death or subjugation under their control, as far as they are concerned.

This War on Terror isn’t against a single person, it’s against an ideology that needs destroyed as much as humanly possible. Neville Chamberlain found out the hard way, at the cost of many of his countrymen’s lives that you cannot negotiate with evil nor can you appease it. You can only fight it and destroy it.

As Winston Churchill once said, "an appeaser is one who keeps feeding a crocodile, hoping it eats him last." That is as an accurate a description of the anti-war left that I have ever seen.

Being realistic about who and what were fighting is not propaganda, it’s an honest assessment of the dangers were now face. Sadly, even if we were to lose a couple large cities due to terrorist attacks, some on the left will still believe all we need do is join hands and sing Kumbaya.

Sorry, but the song doesn’t translate into the language of terrorists.

Rehashing Atrocity Claims & Defeating Lieberman

August 11, 2006
There has recently been a spate of articles on Viet Nam atrocities and war crimes not being prosecuted. I do not for a minute feel the timing is accidental. They have been discussing them on the Swift Vets discussion board as well on FreeRepublic.
 
One train of thought is that they are designed to vindicate John Kerry’s 1971 claims to the Fulbright Commission against Viet Nam Veterans and the War and the “day to day” atrocities we were supposedly committing. Another is that they are to take the wind out of those who are working to set the record straight on what really went on there and reveal the true history of the Viet Nam War.
 
There are forces (people) that hate our country and are working overtime to destroy it, thinking they are preserving some fictional leftwing America that has existed only in the misguided minds of the left. Sadly, these George Soros inspired and financed people, found at Moveon.org and DailyKos and places as that, have hijacked the Democrat Party, the main group that has been instrumental in writing a false history of Viet Nam and who also misled a nation in the late 1960s and early 1970s and encouraged the government to abandon the struggling country of South Viet Nam. If you have ever spied at DemocraticUnderground, you will see the vehemence with which some of these people view America and the solid values that has built this country to greatness over it’s 200 year history.
 
In their anti-war rhetoric (seemingly only when a Republican is leading the fight) and in their efforts to undermine the current War on Terror in Iraq as well as to regain the power and control of America they held and exercised for nearly 40 years, they now wish to rehash the Viet Nam War, making all these claims of war crimes and atrocities against American Troops. However, look at the claims in context.
 
Claims of 320 alleged crimes over 10 years? C’mon, there’s more than that in a regular American large city in a year! (L.A., Chicago, Detroit, etc.) No one ever said atrocities never happened, every war produces them on various scales. We all know they did, but they were never on the day-to-day scale claimed by Kerry and others nor were they condoned by commanders, as also claimed by John Kerry and other supposed Veterans of the War.
 
If they are truly concerned about crimes not being prosecuted, then go ahead and prosecute them now. They can start with all the anti-war activists who claimed they had committed those war crimes, such as Kerry’s admission on the Dick Cavett show and Joe Bangerts claims also made. See how fast these same activists change their tunes about war crimes they committed if facing a death penalty courts martial, especially Kerry.
 
The anti-war left may feel that rehashing supposed war crimes from over 30 years ago vindicates them, but to me, it just further reveals them as the hypocrites they are.
 
The rhetoric and hate mongering from the anti-war left is maddening. But, as evidenced by the recent Connecticut Democratic Primary between Ned Lamont, an anti-war candidate and Senator Joe Lieberman, an 18 year veteran of the Senate, they are eating their own. As revealed by Clinton crony, Lanny Davis this week, in an article he wrote for the Wall Street Journal titled “Liberal McCarthyism.” The attacks and comments against Joe Lieberman, mostly because he supports President Bush’s War on Terror and in Iraq, are as anti-Semitic as anything heard by Hitler’s Nazi’s in pre-World War Two Germany.
 
Even Michael Moore, producer of the failed and highly misleading and inaccurate hit piece laughingly referred to as a movie, “Fahrenheit 911,” has chimed in with his own “warnings” to Democrats. "Let the resounding defeat of Senator Joe Lieberman send a cold shiver down the spine of every Democrat who supported the invasion of Iraq….. we are going to make sure they pay for that mistake.”
 
Chris Matthews, the host of MSNBC’s Hardball, chimes in with, “Lieberman of course is the schmaltzy ethnic guy, the Uncle Tonoose, you know, the guy that’s very much kind of lachrymose in his almost postnasal drip voice of his….” For those who don’t know, Uncle Tonoose was a character, played by actor Hans Conreid on the old Danny Thomas show, “Make Room for Daddy,” back in the late 1950s and early 1960s. The character was a Lebanese Arab with an unusually large nose that the show always joked about.
 
With the new revelations of Viet Nam War Crimes supposedly not prosecuted and the defeat of Senator Joe Lieberman in a Democrat Primary election this week, it appears as if the anti-war left now feels they have a mandate to take control of America. They do not! With the revelation of a terrorist plot broken up in London just this week where they planned to blow up several US bound flights from England over either ocean or over American cities as they arrive, America is waking up to the dangers posed in the world today.
 
The hate America anti-war left still feels they stopped the war in Viet Nam when in reality they prolonged it. They feel they must repeat what they thought they accomplished in Viet Nam and if they do, it will have the same dire results as Viet Nam did, millions of people slaughtered for not towing the line of extremist hardliners.
 
The War on Terror will be a very long fight and it won’t be easily won. This includes the fighting in Iraq. The anti-war left, in repeating the mistakes they made during Viet Nam of not supporting our side, once again emboldens an even more formidable enemy than we faced in Viet Nam. Their goal then was just to enslave Viet Nam under Communism. Islamofascist terrorist’s goal is to enslave the entire world under their sick, degrading and oppressive form of Islam, an otherwise peaceful religion.
 
We are all in this fight together and it wasn’t caused by Democrats or Republicans, but by Islamofascists bent on world domination. The anti-war left fails to see what we are up against and somehow thinks maybe if they bury their heads in the sand or just “talks” to the terrorists, it will cease. It will not! Terrorists use talking as a guise to rearm and lull us back to sleep as they infiltrate our society with sleeper cells and prepare for the next attack to force us into submission. With the support of those who are being misled by the anti-war left, we can and will defeat this latest enemy to the freedoms of the left. Without it, the war will last much longer and cost even more lives, but we will succeed, unless the American public is once again misled by the glib talk of the anti-war left and elects their pacifists to office enough to give them control of the country again.
 
Woe to us if that happens.
 
Don’t fall for the new claims of war crimes and rhetoric about supporters of the current war. It’s all designed to lull you back to a peaceful sleep by those who can’t see beyond the end of their nose about world affairs. As they regain control of the government, even they fail to see the enemy just waiting to conquer America, the “Great Satan,” to them.
 
Thank God we have a man like President Bush in office and even though I disagree with much of what Senator Lieberman says, thank God we have him in the Senate. Both can see the enemy facing America and the perils of continuing to ignore their actions.

Book: 9/11 panel doubted Pentagon’s story

Book: 9/11 panel doubted Pentagon’s story – U.S. Security – MSNBC.com

Once again someone comes out with their "authoritative" tell all book trying to make it appear that President Bush was incompetent or inept. If they actually feel the response was inadequate, why don’t they look back a few months to how the previous administration decimated the military, demoralized them with their anti-military shenanigans as well as deployed our troops more than any other administration and for no real reason of National Security. If "our" foreign policy contributed anything at all to the attacks of 9-11, shouldn’t that also be on the previous administration as the Bush administration was only in office just short of 8 months. At least one of the panel members should not have even been on the panel, but she should have been being questioned critically by the panel. If blame is to be placed on the White House then the Clintons have to be assigned their share of guilt for their actions, policies and conduct of the previous 8 years. Bush inherited a mess and has also received all the blame.
