Ace of Aces

Hatched by Dafydd

Ace over at Ace of Spades linked our post Which Hand Do You Choose; as I always do, I read the post that linked us... and boy, am I glad I did.

Ace's own post (below the part where he links us) is just about the clearest, most succinct, and most devastating critique of the entire liberal "cheerleaders for defeatism" clique I've read. Definitely better than our own post that he linked! (Note, this is not simple modesty, because I have none.)

Just a sample to whet the appetite:

Their careers, political and media, depend upon an American defeat in Iraq. They cannot hope for an actual Al Qaeda military victory; that's simply an impossibility. They need Bush to concede defeat in the jaws of victory, and to do that, they need to convince the American public that a war moving towards full victory is actually doomed to certain defeat.

They need this. They cannot recapture power without it. And if convincing the American people to save their asses by forcing Bush to surrender requires them lying about white phosphorus, "propaganda" in Iraqi newspapers, and the like, they'll do so, gladly.

Read the whole post: if this doesn't put it all on a nutshell for you, you're too reductionist!

"Their careers, political and media, depend upon an American defeat in Iraq."
If they are allowed to have a career. Vote no to the media. Do not buy the media. Media goes out of business. Vote no to the politicians. The politician goes out of the legislatures.

The Dems are currently winning, and one of the primary reasons is that Reps are not only letting them, they are assisting.

ALL the evidence available is so clear, that if Reps would tell the truth about the Dems-lies, the Democratic party would likely implode and rapidly expire.

But the Reps are praising cowardly traitors like Murtha, and remaining silent in the face of a vile propaganda onslaught that grows more dangerous the longer it goes challenged.

As painful as it is to watch as the Left runs amok, it is more painful still to wait in vain as those who have the responsibility and capacity of holding them accountable turn a blind eye.

I wonder if the Reps are pretending nothing is wrong so as not to give the Iraqis second thoughts about that 'democracy-thing'. After all, if the best of the best appears deeply dysfunctional and unstable, it might make them reconsider investing so dearly in a self-help program run by the town drunk.
