Liberals take off the warrior masks and reveal hypocrite faces beneath

Rich Lowry of NRO points out New York Times hypocrite Frank Rich’s changing stance on Afghanistan here but Rich is not alone in his hypocrisy. All of the Democrats and their Liberal supporters share that particular vice. During the Presidential Campaign the Dems and especially “The One” made quite the stink about how George W. Bush had taken his eye off the “important fight” and wasted time in Iraq. I knew at the time they were full of it, that they were willing to say anything to bash Bush but make it seem as though they themselves were not simply just a bunch of arugula-eating-surrender-monkeys.

Now, predictably, they are ready to give up the fight…again. Sure they blame it on changing circumstances such as the election, but that’s simply a pretext thinner than the Gulf of Tonkin (also used by a Dem) to do what they wanted to do earlier; give up, apologize and bend over. That is what they seem best at.

Its War

Yesterday was a day of remembrance and I tried to stay out of any political fights, I failed at the end of the day but ah well. I am only human. I did manage to hold off my anger at seeing some of the news articles that were on the web yesterday and I also held off commenting on Obama’s 9/11 decision to make yesterday a National Day of Service and his Proclamation that went along with it.

Obama says in his Proclamation:
“We must apprehend all those who perpetrated these heinous crimes, seek justice for those who were killed, and defend against all threats to our national security.”

As Andrew McCarthy at National Review Online correctly points out:
“No, Mr. President, these are acts of war. What’s “heinous” is not to see that. And these acts of war, we have learned, happen when we treat such atrocities as if they were mere crimes. It emboldens our enemies to know that we won’t defend ourselves vigorously. How shameful to pick today of all days to display for all to see — including our enemies — that we’ve forgotten that lesson. I shudder to think what it will take to relearn it.”

The Left of this Country has never quite gotten it. Each time we were attacked during the Clinton Administration, it was treated as a crime and each time it had no effect on our enemies planning future attacks. After 9/11, the Bush Administration realized it was a war and treated it that way, and the Left still didn’t get it. They still wanted to call it a crime, they still wanted to treat it as a crime and the few times they used the word “war” was to call Bush and Cheney “war criminals.” (See they still managed to tie-in crime)

If the Left wants to prove they are serious about National Security for a change, why not take the first step and show the rest of us you understand the difference between crime and war.
