Carol Platt Liebau: Thought Experiment

Thought Experiment

If Al Qaeda in Iraq had actually succeeded in their plans to attack the U.S. here at home, would the liberals agree that we should stay, fight and try to win the war?

Or would it just become another reason they believe we should turn tail and run?

Please give the Liberals their due; they would, of course, choose both;

Fight now, on a limited tightly controlled basis, then,

cut and run in time for the next elections.

No this is not satire, the above is the outcome of my thought experiment.

Remember Kerry voted for the funding before he voted against it.

Democrats would likely call for hearings on the "intelligence failure" and demand Bush be impeached for not doing everything he and his administration could to prevent such an attack.

Well madam if the point of fighting the terrorists in Iraq, as I have heard the Commander in Chief say several dozen times publicly, in lieu of fighting them in America still holds an attack by al Qaeda within the borders of the United States would be reason to bring the troops home. The fundament of the argument fails if the fighting in Iraq is supposed to save lives in America and yet they are still lost then the house of cards collapses.


No one wishes to see this be the case but I do not feel there is a justification in the laws of physiscs for the amount of spin it would take to pull rationalizing a greater force in Iraq if America is yet again attacked by terrorists.
