Gee, what a surprise

April 29th, 2008 Posted in Support the Troops

I was purusing Drudge and found this article the other day

THE US war in Iraq has strengthened its strategic position, especially in terms of key alliances, and the only way this could be reversed would be if it lost the will to continue the struggle and abandoned Iraq in defeat and disarray

Wow, how amazing is that (note the sarcasm)??  When we do what we SAY we are going to do and we don’t pussy out when the going gets a little tough (the way the liberals do) other countries respect us.  Gosh, what a surprise that is, strength is respected more than weakness.

Even in majority Islamic societies, their populations allegedly radicalised and polarised by Bush’s campaign in Iraq and the global war on terror more generally, election results don’t show any evidence of these trends. In the most recent local elections in Indonesia, and in national elections in Pakistan, the Islamist parties with anti-American rhetoric fared very poorly. Similarly Kevin Rudd was elected as a very pro-American Labor leader, unlike Mark Latham, with his traces of anti-Americanism, who was heavily defeated.

Does this mean that the Islamic countries love us?  Nope, but it means that they do respect us and when given a choice between psychotic religious nuts and a chance to have some kind of freedom, they will go with freedom.

We represent freedom to the world.  The countries that hate us don’t hate us because we are rich, they hate us because we offer something that they don’t, we offer a vision of a country where you can rise up and be whatever you want to be, think what you want, and not be controlled by a bunch of nuts because they have guns.

They really hate us because they know they can’t beat us either, all they can try and do is use our own freedoms against us by working our press, getting all the so-called ‘peace activists’ worked up and hoping that eventually we will give up and go home.  Soon as that happens they can declare victory and make it look like we are weak and they are strong.

If we stick to our guns and stay with Iraq until they are stabilized, we will create something that hasn’t been seen in the middle east for quite a long time, a stable country that is a real democracy.  It will also put a very large thorn in the side of the two biggest terror nations in the world – Syria and Iran. 

Honestly, how long do you think those two will stand when their next door neighbor is a strong stable democracy that is backed by the United States?  I don’t think it will be very long at all.  All we have to do is not give up.
