Now Playing: "Point of Know Return" by Kansas
The anti-war Left is actually more belligerent than the average conservative might believe. They have lots of ideas and only wish that the Muddlehead from Midland would take a page from their war plans. You see, we should never have gone into Iraq because North Korea is the greater threat. North Korea has the nuke and has delivery systems and likes to sell stuff they shouldn't to other nations that also hate us. Okay. So, what's the game plan? How do you people recommend we go about disarming Kim Jong-Il? Did you want to see the thousands of American dead all at once or spread out over a week or so? Did you want Seoul flattened at the outset with nuclear bombs or ravaged conventionally over several days? Because, when it happens, it's going to be a hideous moment in the history of warfare unless we have our ways of stopping the chain reaction from inside the North. We have a lot of young American soldiers just across the DMZ from a very martially and tyrannically oriented horde of communist Koreans: it will take time to make things safer for them in the event of hostilities. And, right now, they are still very much in harm's way.
So, was that the logical lynchpin of your argument? That we should have gone to war with North Korea before Iraq because the former was the bigger threat? Oh, I see! War wasn't necessary in either case. Right. The North Koreans, as New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson likes to remind us, aren't actually as insane and bloodthirsty as they seem: all those wall-eyed threats of nuclear destruction are just their way of saying they want bilateral discussions with Uncle Sam. Diplomacy will always save the day, sing the hippy-dippy crowd of shitforbrains. Well, I still don't see any progress on that score. They're still sitting there, still starving their people, still beefing up their military and their nuclear arms program, still threatening to violently end the ceasefire that ended the Korean War a half-century ago. No sense of their being amenable to a nice chat about things, you know?
So, I want the Leftists in the front ranks this time, fighting the war we really could've gotten behind. They know so much better how to end the threats against our country. Let them make (and leave) their marks on the Korean peninsula.
