"How did it come to pass that an opposition's measure of a president's foreign policy was all or nothing, success or "failure"? The answer is that the political absolutism now normal in Washington arrived at the moment--Nov. 7, 2000--that our politics subordinated even a war against terror to seizing the office of the presidency." - Daniel Henninger - WSJ 11/18/05

Clinton, Byrd, Pelosi and Reid - We Give Up!

I’m still somewhat miffed by this callous opinion “piece” written by the illustrious Senators Clinton and Byrd. Last night I did not speak so much to what they said ‘in their polled opinion,’ rather it was more a reaction. It sickened me that their inability to deal with day to day changing realities of the Iraq theater in the greater war on terror is someone else's fault. Iraq changed the moment someone considered doing something other than the status quo or sanctions, no fly zones and the rest. It changed the moment the media made mention of it, long before the U.S. entered Iraq.

The senators sent President Bush an interesting challenge:

“If the Bush administration believes that the current war, as it is being executed, is critical to America's future, then it should make the case and let the people decide. Explain to the public why our young men and women should be sent into the middle of a fight between religious factions. Explain why we should continue to devote $10 billion each month to this fight.”

Odd that the president has all the explaining to do, when no one (and this is nothing new) from the anti-war side of the argument feels the need to explain what happens next?

This morning, Ralph Peters makes a stab at it for the consistent Democrat party; consistent in support of “our enemies from the start, undercutting our troops and refusing to explain in detail what happens if we flee Iraq.”

Peters this morning:

“So I'll tell you what happens: massacres. And while I have nothing against Shia militiamen and Sunni insurgents killing each other 24/7, the overwhelming number of victims will be innocent women, children and the elderly.”

Bosnia? That was just rough-necking at recess compared to what Islamist fanatics and ethnic beasts will do. Given that Senate Majority Misleader Harry Reid and Commissar of the House Nancy Pelosi won't tell us what they foresee after we quit, let me lay it out”

And lay it out he does. This is suggested reading and suggested that everyone that cares about the damage the “leadership” is doing to our nation get this, “THE ‘QUIT IRAQ’ CAUCUS: Recipe for Massacre” out there and everywhere.
