If you want to stop the war so much, Steve, why don't you and your fellow travelers focus some of your attention on the good things that are being accomplished in Iraq? Too much trouble? Too much fun to be had in gloating over the failures and tragedies befalling our own servicemen? I know, I know: ABB.
If the Leftists in the media (who have apparently forgotten that advocating human rights is supposed to be one of their guiding principles) would simply stop taking their orders from the al-Sadr Press Syndicate for five minutes, they might realize that a positive message will move the Iraqis to a higher standard of expectation. But if all that matters is undermining our efforts there by giving the insurgents and terrorists an incentive to use Big Media even more, then the time that will have to be spent imposing stability through force will be prolonged.
Don't believe that your treachery is a help. Don't believe that you have a right or civic obligation to relish our problems in Iraq. Don't believe that Kerry is a solution to any problem. You are utterly wrong.
This war will end when the dead-enders no longer have sympathizers doing their bidding here.
