Liberals Against Terrorism 
This looks like a promising and interesting weblog.

America desperately needs a liberal answer to stepping on terrorism's neck. This is a good start.

The best ideas for long term success in the GWOT are not conservative ideas, but liberal ideas which have been abandoned by the American and European left.

Democracy. Freedom. Respect for individual liberties. Self-determination. The dignity of women.

I say these ideas have been abandoned by the left because the policies recently advocated by them - leave Saddam in place since the threat was contained, withdraw from Iraq regardless of the consequences to the Iraqi people, and that the war in Afghanistan was unjustified because it was all about Afghanistan's vast oil reserves - are antithetical the values of true liberalism.

So I hope this blog will be a welcome addition to the dialog.

Because when liberals have jumped in to the GWOT with both feet, rather than sniping uselessly from the wings, two things may happen:

1.) The U.S. will win the war.

2.) The Democrats may win another national election. And actually deserve to.

Splash, out


My post on Thankmyrecruiter.com, 'Contextualizing the debate over OIF':

A reminder for liberals - Kennedy Inaugural:

George W. Bush is a conservative in many ways, but he is a liberal in the War on Terror.
Hey, excellent website. A great Iraq resource is Deaths in Iraq. It breaks all of the casualties down by age, race, branch of the military, country, etc.
