Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

The left finally admits it: OK, we DON’T support the war in Afghanistan

Remember how, for the last 5+ years, the left told us that we should pay more attention to Afghanistan and less to Iraq?  You know, how the war in Afghanistan was much more important than the one in Iraq?  You know, how you couldn’t support the war in Iraq if you didn’t enlist in the military, all while they were allegedly supporting the war in Afghanistan…without enlisting in the military?

To quote the great Vincent Gambini from My Cousin Vinny: “Everything that guy just said was bull$h!t.  Thank you.”  Details:

Escalation is a bad idea. The Democrats backed themselves into defending the idea of Afghanistan being The Good War because they felt they needed to prove their macho bonafides they called for withdrawal from Iraq. Nobody asked too many questions sat the time, including me. But none of us should forget that it was a political strategy, not a serious foreign policy.

There have been many campaign promises “adjusted” since the election. There is no reason that the administration should feel any more bound to what they said about this than all the other committments [sic] it has blithely turned aside in the interest of “pragmatism.”

Refreshingly honest, no?  A leftist admits that the left doesn’t really like or support the military, but considering the public as a whole adores the military, then said leftist knows that his side must pretend to love and support the military, too.

As I was crafting my retort, I read Ace’s take and decided to quote him instead, since his take is much more eloquently stated that my own:

You claimed to support a war in which American soldiers were fighting and dying, leaving friends and limbs on the battlefield, as a cynical political strategy?

You… um… voiced support of a real serious-as-death war to cadge votes out of a duped public?

We won’t forget, champ. And we won’t let you forget, either.

Again we see a leftist projecting his pathological darkness on to others. They accused Bush of fighting wars for this very reason. And now, when it’s safe to say so (they think), they concede: We supported a war for the reason we accused Bush of doing so for 8 years.

If you voted for B.O. in part because you honestly thought he was more commited to Afghanistan (which, before now, was the left’s “war that must be won”), I’ve got some swampland I’d like to sell you.

  1. But none of us should forget that it was a political strategy, not a serious foreign policy.

  2. The only thing Hussein is committed to in Afghanistan is DEFEAT. He refuses to even use the term “VICTORY”. He clearly is NOT on the side of America.

  3. Some on the left have taken great pleasure in mocking conservatives who now support pulling troops out of combat. It is their “gotcha” moment, giving them the false sense of catching conservatives in a “flip-flop”. Truth be told, conservatives always contended that the Afghan theater was not the most advantageous in either the overall effort to combat al-Qaeda or to establish free and democratic society in a part of the world where it has rarely existed before. Iraq was a much better place to accomplish the goal of victory. Since victory is no longer an objective, it only makes sense to support withdrawal. If we aren’t going to fight to win, then why are we fighting at all?

    Side note: does anyone else remember the left chastizing the Bush Administration for going to war without a “plan”? Can anyone please enlighten me on what, exactly, the Obama “plan” is? I know that it isn’t victory – he told us so – but I am still fuzzy on what it is. The journalist of the article Jon mentions seems to think it was political – I want to hear that from the people making the decisions to send Americans off to die.
