Carol Platt Liebau: Stomping American Power

Stomping American Power

The unrestrained glee of its adversaries in seeing the Bush Doctrine as a whole -- not just the Iraq war -- fail is the subject of Daniel Henninger's column.

And Henninger has a prescient warning:

But someone ought to step back and consider the cumulative political effect of what of late has turned into an unrestrained gang-stomping of the sort normally seen at Miami-Florida International football games. We are ensuring that no future president, of either party, will project military power anytime soon short of retaliation for a nuclear attack. Every potential presidential candidate, including John McCain, has to be looking at the Bush administration's experience and concluding there is simply no political upside in doing so.

What's more, there's something ironic about the supposed compassionate souls on the left taking such a hard line against projecting American military might abroad:

No genocide will occur on American soil, but the same information tide that bathes us in Baghdad's horrors ensure that Darfur's genocide will come too near not to notice. Too bad for them, or any aspiring democrats under the thumb of Russia, China, Nigeria, Venezuela or Islam's highly mobile anti-democrats. We've got ours. Let them get theirs.

Only one problem: That attitude isn't the American way.

The left in the West and the Islamic Fascists have no interest in the American Way except to see it destroyed.

Greg is 100% correct. Both the radical Left and the Muslim fanatics want to see America destroyed for their own reasons.

One of the most important things that can be done to succeed in the war against Muslim terrorism is to expose the traitorous Fifth Column in America, and this includes a good number of elected Democrats.
