Oh The Humanity! The Surrendercrats & SurrenderMedia Are Doomed.

Published by at 11:04 am under All General Discussions,Iraq

The led zeppelin of defeatism on Iraq is crashing and burning like the Hindenburg did when it brought an end to airships. Gateway Pundit has a graphic showing the stunning numbers on the drop in violence across Iraq. The entire country of Iraq must be thanking George Bush for “staying the course” and not giving up on them. And for not allowing them to fall prey to endless atrocities at the hands of al-Qaeda, which was the result of the Democratic proposals to cut and run from Iraq ASAP. One can only guess what they think of the Surrendercrats and SurrenderMedia who just about rooted for al-Qaeda to succeed.

Some examples of this rooting may be in order if I get time later today.

Addendum: As promised, some idiotic musings on our imminent defeat in Iraq from the handwringing left, of all stripes:

  • First we have a clearly liberal veteran from 2004 pretending his biased views reflect objective logic:

    Additionally, I am not just a soldier with a muds-eye view of the war, I am in Civil Affairs and as such, it is my job to be aware of all the events occurring in this country and specifically in my region.

    I have come to the conclusion that we cannot win here [Iraq] for a number of reasons. Ideology and idealism will never trump history and reality.

    We are told that the locals are not upset because we have a hostile, aggressive and angry Army occupying their nation. We are told that they are not upset at the police state we have created, or at the manner of picking their representatives for them. Rather we are told, they are upset because of a handful of terrorists, criminals and dead enders in their midst have made them upset, that and of course the ever convenient straw man of “left wing media bias.”

    Ooops. Seems those who were trying to explain reality were right and this defeatist liberal (he called the Iraq war unconstitutional even though Congress authorized it by margins larger than the did for Gulf War I) was dead wrong.

  • Second, we have CNN and Presidential candidate (and wimpy screamer) Howard Dean rallying around the defeatist white flag in 2005:

    Dean, the Democratic National Chairman, on Monday told a San Antonio, Texas, radio station that the United States appears to be making the same mistakes it made during the Vietnam War, and the idea that the war in Iraq can be won is “just plain wrong.”

    “I do not believe in making the same mistake twice, and America appears to have made the same mistake twice,” Dean said during an interview with WOIA radio, adding that he wished Bush “had paid more attention to the history of Iraq before we had gotten in there.”

    Ah, the liberal’s constant search for the next Vietnam. I guess they see it as their mystical Fountain of Youth, something to make them relevant again.

  • Third, we have the classic anti-American liberal who clearly indicates the Islamo Fascism espoused by al-Qaeda is preferable to the ‘forced democracy’ we were apparently forcing in Iraq:

    With a US puppet government in Iraq, a western democracy forced on the Iraqis, the slaughter and war crimes committed by western forces and divisive measures in place to ensure civil war are the ingredients of a right wing fundamentalist and imperialist ‘George Bush’ whose ultimate goal is to take a foothold in the ME and spread western style democracy at the expense of the country’s natural resources. The West cannot win the war. They are fighting a new phenomenon both ideologically and militarily and are losing at every turn. The West seeks recognition in life, whilst Muslims seeks martyrdom in death. The fabric of Muslim society is religious cohesiveness whilst the West is political.

    Geez, I just don’t recall US guns pointed at the heads of all those Iraqi voters – however I do recall the ones pointed by al-Qaeda snipers on fellow Muslims. I get the feeling this person really admires fascism and the power it can give a select few.

  • Our next example is from a man who is guaranteed to get it all wrong, all the time. He wrongly accused his fellow Marines of massacring Iraqis, and he was just as confident when he wrongly predicted we would lose Iraq because the Iraqis would chose al-Qaeda over the US. I bring you Mad Jack Murtha from 2005:

    A prominent Democrat in the U.S. Congress says he believes the United States cannot win the war in Iraq because — in his words — “Iraqis have turned against Americans.”

    Congressman John Murtha responded to a speech by President Bush on Wednesday. Mr. Murtha said what is going on in Iraq today is not terrorism, but an insurgency. He said only seven percent of the fighters in Iraq are foreign fighters.

    Well 7% of the fighters were clearly doing a vast majority of the violence since the areas where al-Qaeda has been purged (because the Iraqis turned against THEM) have now very, very low violence levels.

  • And we complete this list with Surrendercrat-in-Chief, Senate Majority Harry Reid, who naively claimed failure before the Surge really got started:

    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday the war in Iraq is “lost,” triggering an angry backlash by Republicans who said the top Democrat had turned his back on the troops.

    The bleak assessment was the sharpest yet from Reid, who has vowed to send President Bush legislation calling for combat to end next year. Reid said he told Bush on Wednesday that he thought the war could not be won through military force and only through political, economic and diplomatic means.

    “I believe myself that the secretary of state, secretary of defense and – you have to make your own decisions as to what the president knows – (know) this war is lost and the surge is not accomplishing anything as indicated by the extreme violence in Iraq yesterday,” said Reid, D-Nev.

    Dems were always enticing the terrorists to massacre because they would use the stories of bloodshed to keep proposing their surrender plans. It was quite a sickening Pavlovian arrangement.

  • These are just a small sample of the recorded words and predictions of the liberal Surrendercrats and their media allies. We can now look back with the changes of Iraq well underway and see the error of their ways. Now we can only wonder about what was in their hearts to wish so hard for America’s defeat in Iraq at the hands of al-Qaeda thugs. Clearly the Iraqis are glad all these people were dead wrong!

      As I just told a left wing moonbat on another site, based on your logic, please explain to me how enabling a 80% reduction in drive by shootings in your town or city crack neighborhood would make the people there made it was happening.

      Explain to me why they would rather go back to the good old days when it was a free fire zone.
