Ahmadinejad's Amen Corner

After Iranian President Ahmadinejad's interview with Mike Wallace, it was noted on this blog that "the criticisms he launched dovetailed neatly with those that have been thrown around by the Democrats." Investors' Business Daily has noticed the same phenomenon.

What is more encouraging to Iran, that the US is unable to secure Bagdhad after three and a half years because Bush rushed to war on dead-wrong intelligence and tried to do it with too little troops or Nancy Pelosi?

Hmm... Nancy is a leftie so it is all her fault or Clintons.

There may have been tactical mistakes in the war in Iraq. But those can be corrected and overcome.

It's the strateguc goals that offer hope for the people of the Middle East and peace for the rest of the world that the left has been fighting tooth and nail against.

For the life of me I can't see a valid reason for this. They hate Bush. They want his job. Is that a reason to throw away an opportunity for lasting peace and prosperity in the Middle East?

I'm with Greg, I can't understand the hatred for Bush anymore than anyone can understand hatred for Jews.

Victor Davis Hanson speculates Islam hates us because we disturb their world, not with our foreign policy, et al, but because we expose their world, through the internet and other media, to the wonders and benefits of individualism.

Their response is to retreat, he says, further into 7th century puritism.

Is this what is going on in the world of the left, because the left is becoming more and more like some other country. I won't say what other country. Just leave it at a country that I don't understand.

[Islam's collective] response is to retreat, [VDH] says, further into 7th century puritism.

Well, that and they lash out.

I disagree that there have been tactical mistakes. In order to avoid some of the difficulties we faced and continue to face there we would have to be a dictatorship until it is stable and that is something that the US does not want. It weakens our ability to attack Syria, North Korea, or Iran if the world sees us as going in and taking over. The media should not be allowed to report from there and terrorize our soldiers by causing them to worry if they are being video taped and if their actions will result in a trial that could potentially send them to prison for life. That is the only real mistake I see. I watch my husband struggle with all of this and he gets angry about how tied his hands are, but the fact is, we have to let the Iraqis have as much control as they need to convince themselves and the world that they are working for a free Iraq and the US is not the puppetmaster. We would not be what we are if another nation controlled us until we were set up to rule ourselves. We had to learn it for ourselves, it made us stronger and it will make the Iraqis stronger, even with the extra loss of life on all sides.

I wouldn't want to inhibit reporting from Iraq, but I wish there was someway to insist on accurate, objective and supported with some kind of evidence. I wish there was some way to eliminate the subjectivity of the lefty reports. There are those who indeed slant the reports. Somehow it needs to stop.

I don't think it's wrong to say there may have been tactical mistakes, Amber. But such has been part of every war, except those that eddy makes up in his fantasy world. But the goals are noble and honorable and the people seeking to achieve them learn and adapt after mistakes, or more accurately, miscalculations, are made. eddy prefers to believe this is all untrue, but that's what makes him a moonbat, God bless 'im.
