Jr. Investment Chickenhawk Jonathan R. can’t understand why 2000 dead American soldiers means anything to anyone and how come some guy who actually served in Iraq can’t see the big picture like he can from his not-quite corner office:
As the number of Americans servicemen killed in Iraq approaches 2,000 (fewer than the number of Americans killed on December 7, 1941, allied forces killed on June 6, 1944 or American civilians killed on September 11, 2001), the Left is preparing a celebration. They will call it a commemoration or an observance or some such thing, but it really is nothing more to them than a gift: an excuse to once again show their opposition to the war on terror.
How do we know this? The number 2,000 has no particular meaning, except that it is a nice round number and is a good marketing tool for them (sort of like their Y2K, their millennium).
For some, it is a time for some to ask questions.
“I hope that this milestone marks the point when the American people realize the U.S. military is not going to stop the violence in Iraq, and they instead start demanding a political solution to this problem,” Sean O’Neill, a U.S. Marine who served in Iraq, said in a statement.
If he’s missed the two landmark elections in Iraq, which now appears to have a constitution as a result of this ongoing political solution, he can probably be excused because the MSM is choosing to ignore it.(his emphasis)
Yes. The MSM completely ignored both elections. In fact, they are still ignoring it.
In the end, Iraq is on a democratic course, and history will remember the bold action of the President who set about to remake the middle east, not the gnats who snipe at every opportunity.
Just when you think that conservative bloggers can’t get any stupider they start up a Special Olympics of Dumbfuckery and it seems like everyone is going for the gold.
