Liberals and the Media Desperate as Progress Report Draws Near

Really, how else can you accurately affix a term to the efforts they are now so dangerously trying to suppress even as their last bit of respect is on the line. Jack Murtha (D-ickhole, PA) had accused our soldiers of committing war crimes in Haditha long ago, before any evidence had been supported, now has been exposed as a liar, one who, even worse, not only refused to let the facts come out, but refused to give the benefit of the doubt to our soldiers, and yes, in a true showing of why we question their patriotism, defiled our soldiers a war criminals. Michelle Malkin has a great reaction to this bit of news. Hopefully the soldiers Murtha libeled can take appropriate action against him in the court system.

As has been documented over and over again on the blogosphere and even admitted to, grudgingly, by the Liberals, is the successful military gains that the Surge has brought, and yes, the fruits of political reconciliation that are being fostered and developed. Read these two pieces by Mario Loyala, an embedded reported in Iraq, "Operation Phantom Strike" and "Desperados." In these pieces Loyola details, first hand, how the military is "demolishing" al-Qaeda as well as how local tribesmen continue to turn from al-Qaeda and in fact fight them along with the United States. They have taken ownership of the situation and are engaged in the destruction of al-Qaeda in Iraq while starting to reach out to the Iraqi government.

The Liberals know that the tremendous political capital they put on the line here in their pursuit of fulfilling their own goals and their severe infliction of Bush Derangement Syndrome has pretty much doomed them for generations to come should the Iraq conflict be resolved in an acceptable fashion to the American people. Yes, even the people over at The Boston Globe will acknowledge as much. Perhaps this why President Bush took full advantage of the situation to say that we will stand behind al-Maliki because he is the democratically elected leader of Iraq. Perfectly sane and logical, as well as respectful of the democratic process, the same process the Moonbats have cried foul over during the last two presidential cycles. Worse for the Democrats, Hillary Clinton tried to appeal to her base by attempting to subvert the will of the Iraqi people who elected al-Maliki. al-Maliki fired back. This is the new Democratic gambit, knowing that military gains are being made and the Surge is indeed working, they point to the national government's inability to solve all problems are a reason to abandon Iraq to genocide and get their precious votes. It will fail, and the Democrats will fail. Worse for them, Bush has one upped them again and in the process turned the tables on the Democrats who consistently say that Bush usurps the will of an electorate by doing just that in Iraq. Even as our allies in Europe and Asia grow closer to us, it is the Democrats who are crying foul over the policies that are, in fact, strengthening our bonds overseas all the while setting themselves up for more failure and truly dividing us from our allies. The Democrats would rather be closer with Cuba and Venezuela rather than Britain and Japan.

Truly it is their own ideology that is blinding them from gains made on the local level. How arrogant and truly ignorant one must be in order to believe the top of the period must be hoisted high up in the air without a base being built first. Yes, the war was mismanaged at first, but what is happening since Gen. Petraeus has taken charge has been nothing short of remarkable. In time, if given the time our soldiers and our national defense interests deserve, as well as the rights for which we stand to defend need, the end game will be near in what is in the best interests for us and for the human rights of the Iraqi people. For them, a chance to choose the government that they want for themselves. For us, a technical knockout blow to al-Qaeda, a strong ally in the Middle East to help counter the Iranian scourge, and rock solid proof that we will fight to defend our beliefs.

Even further proof of the evidence that is starting to breach the flood gates that the Mainstream Media has erected to protect their Liberal buddies' interests, is that a massive problem has been solved. al-Sadr's Mahdi Army quit, supposedly for six month, but they quit altogether in the face of the Surge, and the MSM is not covering this they way it should. They treat this with a ho-hum despite the ENORMITY of the development. Investment is pouring into Iraq at a tremendous rate, and even now, we prepare for the "Made in Iraq" label to be supplied to the U.S. Sure, it starts off small, much like the textile orders in the previous article, the momentum is at the local level, but it's a base, it's building, and getting stronger. It's military progress, it's the thrashing of al-Qaeda, and the building of relationships with a focus on keeping Iraq secure and peaceful, the keystones toward building a strong government. It's what is best for America. It is what is worst for the Liberals from the Democrats to the Media, and the lid is about to blow off the pot of true knowledge that is boiling over, and the Moonbats are about to get third degree burns.

Every September, I recall that is more than half a century (62 years) since I landed at Nagasaki with the 2nd Marine Division in the original occupation of Japan following World War II. This time every year, I have watched and listened to the light-hearted "peaceniks" and their light-headed symbolism-without-substance of ringing bells, flying pigeons, floating candles, and sonorous chanting and I recall again that "Peace is not a cause - it is an effect."

In July, 1945, my fellow 8th RCT Marines [I was a BARman] and I returned to Saipan following the successful conclusion of the Battle of Okinawa. We were issued new equipment and replacements joined each outfit in preparation for our coming amphibious assault on the home islands of Japan.

B-29 bombing had leveled the major cities of Japan, including Kobe, Osaka, Nagoya, Yokohama, Yokosuka, and Tokyo.

We were informed we would land three Marine divisions and six Army divisions, perhaps abreast, with large reserves following us in. It was estimated that it would cost half a million casualties to subdue the Japanese homeland.

In August, the A-bomb was dropped on Hiroshima but the Japanese government refused to surrender. Three days later a second A-bomb was dropped on the city of Nagasaki. The Imperial Japanese government finally surrendered.

Following the 1941 sneak attack on Pearl Harbor, a Japanese admiral said, "I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant..." Indeed, they had. Not surprisingly, the atomic bomb was produced by a free people functioning in a free environment. Not surprisingly because the creative process is a natural human choice-making process and inventiveness occurs most readily where choice-making opportunities abound. America!

Tamper with a giant, indeed! Tyrants, beware: Free men are nature's pit bulls of Liberty! The Japanese learned the hard way what tyrants of any generation should know: Never start a war with a free people - you never know what they may invent!

As a newly assigned member of a U.S. Marine intelligence section, I had a unique opportunity to visit many major cities of Japan, including Tokyo and Hiroshima, within weeks of their destruction. For a full year I observed the beaches, weapons, and troops we would have assaulted had the A-bombs not been dropped. Yes, it would have been very destructive for all, but especially for the people of Japan.

When we landed in Japan, for what came to be the finest and most humane occupation of a defeated enemy in recorded history, it was with great appreciation, thanksgiving, and praise for the atomic bomb team, including the aircrew of the Enola Gay. A half million American homes had been spared the Gold Star flag, including, I'm sure, my own.

Whenever I hear the apologists expressing guilt and shame for A-bombing and ending the war Japan had started (they ignore the cause-effect relation between Pearl Harbor and Nagasaki), I have noted that neither the effete critics nor the puff-adder politicians are among us in the assault landing-craft or the stinking rice paddies of their suggested alternative, "conventional" warfare. Stammering reluctance is obvious and continuous, but they do love to pontificate about the Rights that others, and the Bomb, have bought and preserved for them.

The vanities of ignorance and camouflaged cowardice abound as license for the assertion of virtuous "rights" purchased by the blood of others - those others who have borne the burden and physical expense of Rights whining apologists so casually and self-righteously claim.

At best, these fakers manifest a profound and cryptic ignorance of causal relations, myopic perception, and dull I.Q. At worst, there is a word and description in The Constitution defining those who love the enemy more than they love their own countrymen and their own posterity. Every Yankee Doodle Dandy knows what that word is.

In 1945, America was the only nation in the world with the Bomb and it behaved responsibly and respectfully. It remained so until two among us betrayed it to the Kremlin. Still, this American weapon system has been the prime deterrent to earth's latest model world- tyranny: Seventy years of Soviet collectivist definition, coercion, and domination of individual human beings.

The message is this: Trust Freedom. Remember, tyrants never learn. The restriction of Freedom is the limitation of human choice, and choice is the fulcrum-point of the creative process in human affairs. As earth's choicemaker, it is our human identity on nature's beautiful blue planet and the natural premise of man's free institutions, environments, and respectful relations with one another. Made in the image of our Creator, free men choose, create, and progress - or die.

Free men should not fear the moon-god-crowd oppressor nor choose any of his ways. Recall with a confident Job and a victorious David, "Know ye not you are in league with the stones of the field?"
