Stark Choice Vs. Terror
by

President Bush just wrapped up a fairly effective press conference. It ended on a note that will make the Left go bonkers, but one on which the president’s very direct language is absolutely positively appropriate and accurate. I think I have the quote right. Bush was speaking on the war against terrorists. He called it “a struggle between the forces of moderation and reasonableness and good versus the forces of murder and intolerance.”

Precisely. We are the good guys on the world stage. The Left thinks not just that we are in a futile effort in Iraq; they think we are in an IMMORAL effort there. But that just shows how utterly skewed is the morality of the Left. We overthrew a vicious, murderous dictator who gassed his own people, invaded two neighbors, harbored and abetted terrorists, developed weapons of mass murder and then refused to account for their disposal, sponsored the biggest corruption scheme in UN history, consistently fired on American planes enforcing UN resolutions, and planned and plotted for new development of weapons of mass murder. We were right to do so. We acted morally in doing so. And we are acting morally in fighting Islamic jihadist terrorists worldwide, while trying to change the hearts of more Muslims so that they will root out the terrorists from their communities and support peaceful coexistence with people of other faiths.

So, yes, it is a fight between good and evil. And we are good. The president is right.
