Three years of war, thousands of dead U.S. troops, hundreds of thousands of dead Iraqis, and now we’ve got one dead al Qaeda guy and suddenly this is a whooping success? I honestly can’t believe anyone with integrity can support this or any pre-emptive war. So while your views are of no real merit to me, I still feel obligated to exercise my freedom of speech while I’m still privy to it.
I’d like to point out that we lost this war at the same time we lost our dignity, at the beginning of it. It’s a disgusting act of imperial might and desperate attempt to clench global domination.
You and your journalistic peers hold the future of this world firmly in your hands and yet you squander this power with senseless reporting of futile information. I strongly urge you to consider the possibilities of corruption amidst our own government and use your craft to disseminate the truth of this war to the American people so they can make an honest and fair appraisement of our current and future leadership no matter what side of the political landscape they might reside.p>Thank you, br> — Jason Pebworth /p>
Some thoughts on Andrew Cline’s article:
I had always thought there were two categories of the anti-Iraq War folks: legitimate criticism (a la Pat Buchanan and the more reasonable Democrats), and treasonous comments (everybody else).
After reading the comments from the non-politicos in Cline’s article, I’m convinced that we need to add a third category: the outright delusional. It’s not enough to say that these folks are treasonous, because that would require a certain degree of rational thought. As long as these guys have a say in Democratic Party policy (via Daily Kos and other far-left websites), the Democrats are doomed to perpetual minority status.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
