“Hate America” Crowd Is Really Upset With Iraq Successes

Published by at 8:01 am under All General Discussions

Want to understand the depth to which the liberal left hates America? When attempting to acknowledge our successful efforts in Iraq, the caveats which come swift and fierce outline how this is just the norm for a screwed up and embarrassing US of A:

Nothing in the field of international affairs is as scandalous and as perplexing as the fac of American power. From Revolutionary times to the present, virtually all observer foreign and domestic have agreed that Americans don’t do foreign policy well. Moralistic uninformed, unsubtle, alternately isolationist and hyperactive, hamstrung by a clums constitutional process and a public that oscillates between fatuous idealism and ignoran bellicosity, U.S. foreign policy has been shocking the world for more than 200 years

And, worse still, we win. For two centuries, the United States has astounded critics with its bad foreign policy–and, for two centuries, the United States has steadily risen to an unprecedented level of power and influence in the international system. Why does the team with the worst skills in the league end up with so many pennants?

Bad policy? Was defeating the Nazis and the Japanese (who performed obscene medical experiments on their defeated enemies) bad policy? I guess we should have just let the Nazis finish the job of annihilating the Jews and the Japanese have at the Chinese as nothing more than grown up Stem Cell farms.

This poor stunned ‘critic’ just cannot understand how a proudly independent people (i.e., we do not depend on the government to take care of us) could have opinions (as opposed to bowing down to the master class), voice those opinions (being bellicose as we are) and then have the spine to back our opinions up with force when faced with threats.

Reading this tripe is sometimes quite humorous. This person cannot understand why America doesn’t fall into his/her world view of how things should be! It never occurs to people like this that is because their world view of how things should be suck and are simply mature versions of Walter Mitty daydreams where they are top of the world, blessed with omnipotent insight none of the ‘normal’ human beings posses. I guess this self-aggrandizing egotism is what we get after decades of Hollywood making us out to be the hero (clearly through the lives of their characters).

This poor soul is so adament to demonstrate his brilliant insight he dribbles on like this for page after page after page. Well, if you are going to make yourself look like a fool, no reason why you should do it halfway. As my Dad always said, if you are going to do something, do it to the best of your ability. I think this person can declare success. He is a class A fool. And there are millions of people now living in freedom across this world who KNOW this man is a fool. They are living proof of his foolishness because their lives are the result of all that poor American policy – and the blood of good Americans who made it possible.

    Please AJ, may I nominate another class A fool? I have to pick
    Ann Coulter, for her comments about jews needing to be
    “perfected” and become christians to live in her perfect world.
    Class A fool for picking a political fight that did not need to be
    picked, for opening a deep wound that did not need scratching
    open, and for launching a battle that had no upside and only
    a vote-losing downside.
    Trying to argue the point on conservative websites I couldn’t
    even get through, not that I wished to argue the merits of one
    religion vs another, but that it was a politically stupid thing to do.
    Her true fans are already there with her, but to moderates and
    people of other religions, she just threw her support behind
    I’m going to call it her “Sister Soldjah” moment.

    It’s Islamo Facist Awareness Week. A couple of links to a portion of the Activities going on.



    Of course, many leftist don’t like this.

    It looks like the Pakistani tribes are also starting to tire of al Qaida and have begun the process of ejecting them:

    Miran Shah, 23 Oct. (AKI/DAWN) – The Dawar tribe in Pakistan’s tribal area of North Waziristan has raised an army of volunteers to expel foreign militants from the restive region and eliminate criminals, sources said.

    It was decided that it would be the responsibility of each Dawar tribesman to stop providing shelter to foreign militants and to expel them from the area. The armed volunteers would start patrolling the area soon.

    The jirga also decided that if someone killed a volunteer, his house would be set on fire and he would be fined one million rupees (over 16,000 US dollars). The family of the accused would also be expelled from the area.

    It is the beginning of the end for Osama and his ilk in Pakistan. They don’t want to be a part of a global caliphate run by a self-appointed megalomaniac Arab caliph either.

    I was a lefty once, and I used to sit around with fellow travelers and dream of one day placing one of our own in the White House. This of course actually occurred in 1992. Having been a lefty, I know that the price of admission into the leftist cabal for an American, is first to effectively renounce one’s American-ness. Second is to adopt socialism, thus making capitalism and capitalists the enemy. This means America becomes your enemy.

    We knew that it was important, however, not to let our true feelings about our own country come to the fore. We cloaked our perfidy in many ways, but suffice it to say, we were aware that we could get more accomplished if our ideology and our true goals were hidden from plain view.

    In reading the New Republic article linked here, it is absolutely astounding to me that America haters like this author have no compunction about revealing their true feeling about the US. It is clear that this particular author, and many posters here on this blog who come from left field, no longer see the need to obscure anti-American feelings. This is as sad as it is inexplicable, to me. I guess it could be a good thing that the left in this country and the Democratic party no longer feels it necessary to cloak their true ideology or their agenda, as the first time our country elected a true lefty, we were duped, because Bill Clinton ran in no way similar to how he governed.

    These are the people that Jeanne Kirkpatrick used to call the blame America first crowd.

    And there is a lot of self loathing out there on the American left, everything from slavery to the fate of the American Indians to a lack of universal health care is used as evidence of our worthlessness.

    They need to look at the rest of the world.

  6. BarbaraS says:


    They need to go live in the rest of the world. It might wake them up to reality.

    I might start them off with a poor rural Cuban village. Let them experience Castro’s “paradise” for a while outside of Havana. I always thought it was so ironic that Cuba was trading doctors to Venezuela for oil … until all the Cuban doctors fled Cuba for Columbia on their way to get to the US. A real knee-slapper.

  8. crosspatch says:

    Oops. Meant fled Venezuela for Columbia.

    There are many of the bed wetter types who see nothing but issues with problems , the “I can’t do it, it’s too hard” types. Then there are those that cut through the mess grab who they need to by the neck , slam em up against the wall and ask them if they really want to engage their mind and think for a change.

    Sort of part of the reason CA and VT are as far as they can be from Tx.

    This is beyond the pale:

    The Bush administration is starving for good news out of Iraq, and it may finally have some: new U.S. government statistics showing that violent attacks of all kinds are down to levels not seen since 2005. But until recently, the administration appears to have resisted acknowledging a key element of the new data, because it flies in the face of President George W. Bush’s ongoing rhetorical confrontation with Iran’s clerical regime. According to three senior U.S. officials, who asked for anonymity when discussing sensitive information, the decline in Iraq violence also includes a decrease in the number of attacks attributable to insurgents backed or armed by Iran. Pentagon Press Secretary Geoff Morrell confirmed to NEWSWEEK that “there has indeed been a drop” in such attacks, but he added that “it’s not entirely clear what the reason for that is.”

    To which Greyhawk adds:

    Yes, ladies and gentlemen, the Bush administration has now been accused of trying to cover up good news from Iraq.

    Newsweek needs to quite hiring those kids out of “journalism” school. They can’t find a story if it was pasted to their a$$. In fact, I don’t think “journalism” is something that can be taught. You either are or aren’t a journalist. Kinda like giving a college course in being a pundit. Good journalists have something about their personality that can’t be taught in school. You can’t make someone a good journalist any more than you can make someone a good sculptor.

  11. Terrye says:


    I saw that, yes, they have found something else to blame on Bush. It is pathological.

  12. lurker9876 says:

    And to read one of Captain’s Quarters’ message saying that the Democrats wanting to delay the budget plan until they find a way to force Bush to withdraw troops. They’re pissed at Bush for vetoeing SCHIP.

    Many have testified to congress that the military needs stable funding to meet contract milestone payments.

    You can’t keep playing with them like a light switch.

    Just political gaming and it will only result in a flood of earmarks at the end and even fights over prior failed legislation hooked on as amendments.
