Great Timing, Dems!

From–of all sources!–the New York Times:

Senior leaders of Al Qaeda operating from Pakistan have re-established significant control over their once-battered worldwide terror network and over the past year have set up a band of training camps in the tribal regions near the Afghan border, according to American intelligence and counterterrorism officials.

American officials said there was mounting evidence that Osama bin Laden and his deputy, Ayman al-Zawahri, had been steadily building an operations hub in the mountainous Pakistani tribal area of North Waziristan. Until recently, the Bush administration had described Mr. bin Laden and Mr. Zawahri as detached from their followers and cut off from operational control of Al Qaeda.

The United States has also identified several new Qaeda compounds in North Waziristan, including one that officials said might be training operatives for strikes against targets beyond Afghanistan.

So, this is the time we should pull out of Iraq–when al Qaeda is regrouping in the region, and Iran is flooding Iraq with weapons and commando forces?  Classic Democrat “logic”: having declared Iraq an unwinnable war, they now set out to ensure defeat–better to lose than be wrong! 

The only way in which Iraq is like Vietnam is in the sense that ‘Nam, too, was a war we lost because cowardly politicians and activist media at home openly sabotaged it, resulting in our disgraceful abandonment of a struggling nation.  Sometimes I think the only thing liberals are good at is repeating history; they certainly never learn from it. 

When we betrayed South Vietnam in 1975, retreating while that country was too weak to resist invasion from the north, the Communists quickly took over and slaughtered over a million South Vietnamese, destroying the vibrant, prosperous, and–most importantly–free nation.

What will happen when we abandon Iraq?  As usual, consequences and reality simply are not important to liberals/Democrats–they’ll find a way to blame Bush no matter what.

  1. Self-fulfilling prophecies are never wrong!

  2. Disdain for America internationally is birthed by this very negligence. War cannot be conducted with an eye to being popular. Allowing subversives to represent American ideals can only embolden enemies and foment distrust and cement a vision of cowardice.

    1930’s isolationism failed then, and will fail now.

    Another bloodbath in Iraq after a cowardly, but mutually agreed upon withdrawal, as in Vietnam,ends the American moment of world dominance, inviting into the void only those with less than affectionate eyes toward us.

    Who screwed up and let this thru the NYT editors desk?

  4. Haha, I wondered that myself, Hank….welcome!

  5. Hi Allison!

    Refreshing to see another young person joining the ranks of the sane and prudent in the affairs of the world.

    Hi Bridget! I always seem to come across attractive young women that are bright, perceptive and willing to face disagreement from the kooks of this world. (ok, I clicked the link on your blog) The results were the same.


  6. Hi Hank,

    Allison is my friend from law school. As you point out, she is a babe. Glad my shameless promotion of my friend paid off.
