Will the Dems and Mainstream Media Win Their War Against Iraq?
Each and every day the Democrats and their “mainstream media” are denigrating the Iraq war, the Iraqis and US troops. Much the same as they were able to vilify those who fought in and supported the US fight against repressive communism in Viet Nam and were able to sway the American public toward opposition to that war, they are currently using their own bully pulpits to destroy any chance of democracy in Iraq.
Recently, I asked the question in an Op/Ed “Are Liberal Democrats Really Pro-Terrorist?” The answer, now, is a resounding “Yes.” In fact, liberal politicians from both sides of the aisle are aiding the terrorists’ ambitions. Leftist Senator Russ Feingold (D-WI) has called for President Bush’s censure—for working to protect the United States from these Islamo-fascists. Two of Feingold’s leftist colleagues, Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) and Sen. Tom Harkin (D-IA) have joined him in his call for censure and Sen. Dick “Turban” Durbin (D-IL) said (sort of) that he’s considering it when he said on Fox News Sunday “I'm not ruling it in or out at this point in time.”
Their pretended “outrage” concerns the NSA communiqué intercept program, which continues to be purposefully misrepresented by both the MSM and the liberals. The NSA program is designed to uncover terrorist plots before the terrorists can implement them against America. However, our elected liberal and leftist leaders continue to be more concerned with their own venal political aspirations, rather than any real concerns for the country. If they don’t support censure, the Democrats’ first step toward President Bush’s impeachment (again—an “impeachment” based upon the president’s attempts to actually protect the US), the left-wing money folks won’t fund them in the style to which they’ve become accustomed. It’s just that simple. Note: Watch closely. More and more liberal and leftist Dem politicians will join presidential hopeful Feingold, as their reserves require replenishing.
The MSM still refuse to write and publish anything that is remotely positive about what the United States has accomplished in Iraq. As but a very few of the “good news” items coming out of Iraq, please consider the following: Over 3,000 schools have now been built and opened in Iraq; schools that girls and young women now attend. The country has held two unprecedented democratic elections—elections which were heavily discounted by both leading Democrats and their media. Kurdistan has fast become a tourist location and Good News From the Front reports: “Farouq Al Mulla Abdullah, chairman of 'Asia Al Kurdia' company, based in Al Selaimania (350 km northeast of Baghdad) has launched its tourist project under the name of 'City of Beauty', which is considered as the biggest tourist project in the province. The project consists of a hotel of 28 floors (5 stars) and modern tourist facilities, constructed on a hill in the middle of Al Selaimania city, at the cost of 60 million dollars.” And, despite the fact that terrorist suicide bombers are still continuing to affect their carnage, new banks are opening in Iraq. In addition, Iraqi troops and police are being effectively trained—as evidenced by “Operation Swarmer”.
However, any and all good news does not jibe with the Democrat leftists’ agenda of: “In order to destroy Bush, we have to destroy Iraq. In order to fill our coffers and get reelected, we may even have to put the country in jeopardy. But, the end will justify our means.”
So, as the Dems and their leftist antiquated media continue to feign the “whole truth” and spew their daily (if not hourly) invectives against President Bush (who—by the way isn’t running for any office), remember the following: Viet Nam could have been won but, the media and the leftists were able to convince the public that it “couldn’t be” done. The media and the leftists are employing the same tactics as they did in Viet Nam to Iraq. The liberal and leftist “polls” are bought and paid for [by them] and are consistently skewed to their bizarre and increasingly dangerous viewpoints. The danger is to civilization, itself. Last, elected liberal and leftist politicians will do anything—anything—to regain power; even if it involves placing the country in peril.
Let’s face it. Not only does the obsessive quest for power blind those who are fixated and possessed by it but, it becomes “power above all else” as the sole corrupted goal. So, the next time you read the all-negative-all-the-time portrayals from these entities, remember their true goals—goals that have neither anything to do with the continuation of the USA as a sovereign nation nor the protection of its citizens.
