The Weak Horse

Yesterday, the New York Times published a truly sickening editorial clamoring for the immediate withdrawal of the United States from Iraq.

The prescription of the Times for America’s woes in the Middle East is so wrong, for so many reasons, that it truly defies the ability of this writer to do justice in explaining its fault and downright malice and cruel perfidity.

Better attempts have been made by Jules Crittenden and Don Surber. Both commentaries are required reading.

But the truly ugly fact that must be faced, is that the Times editorial is only one more step in the accelerating rush to defeat now gripping this nation. This week, just in time to give the hysterical Sunday morning talk shows one more thing to ignorantly bloviate about, Senator Pete Domenici (R-NM) joined the ever growing Republican Caucus of the Cowardly and announced that the United States must “change direction” in Iraq. Proving once again, that qualities such as leadership and independent thought are in short supply in that august body, whose perquisites are apparently so grand, that it is filled with those who would rather lose a war, than lose their membership.

We are going to lose this war.

But we are not going to lose this war because of the New York Times, or President Bush, or Republican defectors in the Senate, and certainly not because of the pitiful exertions of a handful of nihilistic pre-modern primitives who would rather destroy everything within their reach than allow anyone to be free; disgusting, despicable primitives who, if there was any justice in this world, would find themselves facing extinction by our hand and their children living in freedom and prosperity.

No. We will lose this war because we lack the will to do what is necessary to win. We cannot muster the minimal courage to make the sacrifices necessary to safeguard our own liberty. We cannot display the basic decency to fulfill the promises that we have made to a foreign people in the promotion of that interest.

And so, the Enemy is right about us. We are “the weak horse.”

And what repercussions are to come because of it?
