The media loved to call the Iraq War “Bush’s unpopular war”. President Obama stated that if elected he would end the war. Well, he has begun pulling our troops and declared that the war is over. Of course we all know that the war is not over. President Obama has just retreated as American leadership retreated from Vietnam.
There once was a time in this country when the majority of people would support a war to rid the world of evil. While the first two World Wars had their share of anti-war protesters, the majority of Americans stood behind the nation as it did what it had to do. Not so since the Vietnam War. Despite the fact that the Vietnam War was the right war for the time…contributing to the demise of Soviet style communism by helping to bankrupt the USSR, the American people were led by anti-Americans posing as anti-war protesters to use kid gloves, lose advantage, and eventually retreat. That approach led to twice as many deaths of Americans in Vietnam than should have been. That same approach led to needless deaths in Iran during the hostage “crisis” and in Somalia during the Mogadishu catastrophe.
Now it is repeating. The press calls this an unpopular war. A relatively small group of anti-war protesters get huge press coverage again and again. The voices of those who support the effort are marginalized by the media, academia, and the Hollywood elite and are called uneducated or, God forbid, conservatives! All of this contributes to the “unpopularity of the war”. Just look at the morons holding the signs in the picture below. I am just guessing that they are people who have never done anything to defend this country. Just another group ofpacifists who would prefer America to fail. Another group of leftist morons.
Let us stop and think. We were NOT fighting Iraq. We were trying to free those people so that they can form a better government in the very core of the Middle East…amid theocracies and dictatorships. We were fighting a war that could eliminate the threat of global islamofascism just as did the medieval Crusades. Our actions in the Middle East early on led Libya to get the point and give up. That was when Khadafy thought we had gained some strength as a nation. He was right but only for a short time. Once leadership changed to the left he held out because the far left anti-American “elite” has once again done its job…tearing down our nation.
The far left does not differentiate between good and evil. It only differentiates between what it perceives to be strong and wrong (America) and weak and deserving (everyone else).
The elites choose, for some reason, to always defend everyone else instead of the country that gave its “stars” their opportunity. It has weakened American resolve just as it did during the war in Vietnam. It is preventing the civilian leaders of the military to take a strong stand. It is contributing to the deaths of thousand of Iraqis and Americans. Those deaths are on the heads of ANYONE that prevented America from getting the job done.
That means ANYONE!
