"Why America must be defeated in Iraq" 
By a guy named Mike Whitney.

The greatest moral quandary of our day is whether we, as Americans, support the Iraqi insurgency. It’s an issue that has caused anti-war Leftists the same pangs of conscience that many felt 30 years ago in their opposition to the Vietnam War. The specter of disloyalty weighs heavily on all of us, even those who’ve never been inclined to wave flags or champion the notion of American “Exceptionalism”.

For myself, I can say without hesitation that I support the "insurgency", and would do so even if my only 21 year old son was serving in Iraq. There’s simply no other morally acceptable option.

Just don't question his patriotism or anything.

Therefore we look for an American defeat in Iraq. Such a defeat would serve as a powerful deterrent to future unprovoked conflicts and would deliver a serious blow to the belief that aggression is a viable expression of foreign policy.

What amazes me is the guy's sheer nihilism: His willingness to abandon large swathes of the Iraqi people - just months after they expressed their political will through largely succesful elections - to the wolves of radical jihadism in order to prove a semantic point:

Those who argue that we cannot leave Iraq in a state of chaos don’t realize that stabilizing the situation on the ground is tantamount to an American victory and a vindication for the policies of aggression. This would be a bigger disaster than the invasion itself. The Bush administration is fully prepared to carry on its campaign of global domination by force unless an unmovable object like the Iraqi insurgency blocks its way. Many suspect, that if it wasn’t for the resistance, the US would be in Tehran and Damascus right now. This, I think, is a rational assumption. For this reason alone, antiwar advocates should carefully consider the implications of “so-called” humanitarian objectives designed to pacify the population. “Normalizing” aggression by ameliorating its symptoms is the greatest dilemma we collectively face.


The Iraqi people be damned. I don't want to make the policy work because if it succeeds, Bush might be inclined to broaden his success and spread even MORE democracy around the Middle East. Therefore, I would rather see Iraqis slaughtered by the terrorists like chickens than see U.S. policy bear fruit.

By the way, the language of "National Liberation" is always a reliable giveaway. When push comes to shove, socialism always abandons the people it claims to serve.

Splash, out


Jason, your views demonstrate a spoiled child's faith in the utmost of constitutionally granted freedoms protected by U.S. taxpayers. That is right, we pay for the defense of our country and go so far as to finance "orgs" such as the ACLU with ample grant monies (all of which go to LAWYERS, by the way). My question to you: Is your petulant speech the propaganda of a paid agitator (LAWYER) or are you simply another youthful crybaby trying to have your way. Please do not answer this, if you are a LAWYER!
Excuse me. Above should have been directed to Mike Whitney, not Jason. Please accept VIGILIS's Humble apologies (is there a way to retract errors?).
Oh, Jason - the left has ever been full of those who would not flinch against breaking a few million eggs (or skulls) in order to make the anti-American omlette.

It's all for the greater good - don't you see?
I didn't mean to leave that anonymously. I stand by my words.
Never mind that this guy speaks for treason. He's a freakin' idiot. I haven't seen such a mish mash of propositions left dangling, unsupported assertions, fallicies and just plain old argumentative hopscotch in quite some time.

Axis of Logic, indeed. Whitney would get his ass whooped at the Romper Room Debate Club.
Maybe I'm wrong, but I'm betting this Whitney Houston guy quaffed champagne the day the twin towers came tumbling down.
