The Party of Appeasement
Yesterday House Democrats got what they wanted, narrowly: a declaration that the troops must come home from Iraq by September 2008, combined with the latest appropriation for the troops. The legislation, which will probably be vetored anyway, portrays the Democrats as the party of appeasement and surrender. But they are dreaming if they think the thugs will now leave us alone. That’s the kind of fantasy that brought on 9/11 in the first place.
The Democrats aren’t the only ones cheering, either. Al Qaeda and the various thugs vying for control of Iraq, plus other terrorists around the world, are also happy that the U.S. appears indeed to be the paper tiger they have said we are all along. They can’t wait for the Democrats to regain control of the White House. When they do, Iraq’s democratic experiment will be history, and the terrorists will be that much closer to obliterating Western civilization.
