One more thought...

about the fourth anniversary of the Iraq war, with a tip of the hat to Bill at Daily Kos for these tasty tidbits from various conservative pundits weeks after the war began…

“It's amazing that more than two weeks into the liberation of Iraq---as residents in Basra are cheering British forces and Americans occupy Baghdad's airport and Saddam Hussein's main presidential palace---the antiwar crowd is still spinning a doomsday scenario. But it's getting harder and harder to take seriously the claim that freeing Iraq will make it harder to win the war on terrorism. [...] Who said war never solved anything?” ---Brendan Miniter, Assistant Editor, Wall St. Journal's Opinion Journal.com, 4/8/03


“There's a certain amount of pop psychology in America that the Shia can't get along with the Sunni and the Shia in Iraq just want to establish some kind of Islamic fundamentalist regime. There's almost no evidence of that at all. Iraq's always been very secular.” ---Bill Kristol, 4/1/03


TED KOPPEL: “[Y]ou’re not suggesting that the rebuilding of Iraq is going to be done for $1.7 billion?”
ANDREW NATSIOS [Agency for International Development]: “Well, in terms of the American taxpayer's contribution, I do. This is it for the US.” ---Nightline, 4/23/03


“[Liberals] can't deny that President Bush has won his two wars, and won them resoundingly.” ---Paul Mirengoff, Powerline, 4/26/03


“Each morning, we sat reading our copy of The New York Times, The Washington Post or the Los Angeles Times and ruminated on their prophecies of doom and quagmire. Then we looked up to see, on television, correspondents actually embedded with our troops reporting quick advances, one-sided firefights, melting opposition and, finally, welcoming crowds.” ---Dick Morris, 4/15/03


“The three-week swing through Iraq has utterly shattered skeptics' complaints.” ---Tony Snow, Fox News, 4/27/03


Uh... sure…

I can't stop thinking that all that narrow-mindedness got us real far... didn't it?? I mean, what's next... trying to spin that the war in Iraq is on the right track?

Oh, wait…

We are such a sad country that our wars are not only fought on tv...in blogs...and the real bullets...we would never ever win a war if everyone wants their way.
We are spoiled...as a nation. We have everything we want given to us on a silver platter...our freedom. It was won by men ... real men who lived long ago...now we cannot win anything because we are almost all lazy...and afraid of our own shadows. I want to say thank you to our brave men and women fighting now...for us spoiled people who would sooner give our nation to the various enemy types that we have rather than fight. Someday we will see...the same thing that happened to other powerful nations happen to us. Sad...I am so sorry some have died in this war...but does anyone think of our dear ones who died for practically nothing doing drugs...on our highways just trying to get there (where ever the there is) fast...or not eating food for fear of being fat...or all the other things that seem important to a selfish society we have become. War is never a pretty thing. But neither is getting our buildings, ships or
nation getting bombed either. Please think about the alternitive....if we give in now...what is next on our beautiful America's history book...that is all I have to say...
God Bless Our America...and all it's faults...and good people..
