Carol Platt Liebau: Why the Conflict Matters

Why the Conflict Matters

Bill Kristol articulates it perfectly:

What's happening in the Middle East, then, isn't just another chapter in the Arab-Israeli conflict. What's happening is an Islamist-Israeli war. You might even say this is part of the Islamist war on the West--but is India part of the West? Better to say that what's under attack is liberal democratic civilization, whose leading representative right now happens to be the United States.

Bill Kritol has admitted his plan, "The Project for the New American Century" that hailed American emperial control of the Middle East has failed as proven by the black hole in Irag.

Sad to see he isn't locked away in a padded cell for the mentally ill.

Hey, I thought our invasion of Iraq was going to bring peace, prosperity, and happiness to the Middle East.

Ooops, wrong again!

You forgot to add that the war was going to pay for itself, too.

Bush's hornet nest is now swarming.

The U.S. is fighting a two front war with Afghanistan and Iraqi insurgents. Israel is fighting a two front war with Lebanon and the Palestinians. Syria, Iran and North Korea are rattling their swords.

American's look foward to $ 4 a gallon gasoline and more record breaking highs in energy and defense industries.

Bill Kristol is correct when he says,"Better to say that what's under attack is liberal democratic civilization, whose leading representative right now happens to be the United States." Very well said and
completely apropos.

In case you don't know this, Bill Kristol spearheaded the neocon agenda of American hegemony and is now laughed at and ridiculed in Washington. One can only wonder why Carol still jumps on his wrecked wagon.

Marriage is under attack, too.

The homosexuals have been firing Katyusha rockets into Americans' living rooms for a while now.

Kristol admitted his plan has failed? Please provide links for support. Sad to see you don't understand what his plan is.

wrabkin is an obvious child of the MTV generation and believes these things happen overnight. At the same time, we're all still waiting for a lib alternative.

Study basic supply and demand to understand current gas prices.

dukestir---don't give up your day job. The comedy thing ain't happenin'.

I don't have link. Kristol's comments that I saw were on C-SPAN when he was on a panel at AEI. He said it was rare to be invited to a conservative think tank.

Anyway, he closed his neocon organization, The Project for the New American Century.

Bill Kristol is right. And those who realize it will be the ones who defeat Islamic Fascism and once again advance the cause of freedom.
