Quick, put some lipstick on that pig!
Yesterday, I wrote that Iraq has already been lost politically, and that sending in more troops is a bad idea based on the misguided belief that we are in some way still able to influence events as they unfold.
One of our many pro-war visitors took umbrage with said characterization, falling on the ever-handy baton of media bias to argue that I'm just not mentioning the many wonderful things that are transpiring in Iraq.
I'm not saying the Bush administration hasn't made some big mistakes, but I am saying that the media and the far left NEVER have anything positive to say about our progress there.I assume that the same logic that holds that those who criticize the war are automatically members of the "far left" holds true both ways -- we wouldn't want to be inconsistent -- so it's safe to say that our commenter is a member of the far right. S/he then adds:
As a twenty year Veteran, which included combat in Desert Storm, I have some insight into our military. Here are a few things we have accomplished in Iraq that the far left will never discuss, let alone praise, our current administration for doing.
