Tigermike 2,359 Posted August 28, 2006 Share Posted August 28, 2006 RE: THE LEFTÃ¢â‚¬Å“This yearÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Democratic plan for the future is another inane sound bite designed to trick American voters into trusting them with national security. To wit, theyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re claiming there is no connection between the war on terror and the war in Iraq, and while theyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re all for the war against terrorÃ¢â‚¬â€absolutely in favor of that warÃ¢â‚¬â€they are adamantly opposed to the Iraq war. You know, the war where the U.S. military is killing thousands upon thousands of terrorists (described in the media as Ã¢â‚¬ËœIraqi civilians,Ã¢â‚¬â„¢ even if they are from Jordan, like the now-dead leader of al-Qaida in Iraq, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi). That war. As Howard Dean put it this week, Ã¢â‚¬ËœThe occupation in Iraq is costing American lives and hampering our ability to fight the real global war on terror.Ã¢â‚¬â„¢ This would be like complaining that RooseveltÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s war in Germany was hampering our ability to fight the real global war on fascism. Or anti-discrimination laws were hampering our ability to fight the real war on racism. Or dusting is hampering our ability to fight the real war on dust... Assuming against all logic and reason that the Democrats have some serious objection to the war in Iraq, perhaps they could tell us which part of the war on terrorism they do support. That would be easier than rattling off the long list of counterterrorism measures they vehemently oppose. They oppose the National Security Agency listening to people who are calling specific phone numbers found on al-Qaida cell phones and computers. Spying on al-Qaida terrorists is hampering our ability to fight the global war on terror!... They oppose profiling Muslims at airports. They oppose every bust of a terrorist cell, sneering that the cells in Lackawanna, New York City, Miami, Chicago and London werenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t a real threat like, say, a nondenominational prayer before a high school football game. Now thatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a threat.Ã¢â‚¬Â Ã¢â‚¬â€Ann Coulter Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
