Anti-War, My Foot

Really, I thought winning the Cold War & 2 Reagan landslides had put these fools out of business.....keep dreaming, fruitcakes! Vietnam is never, ever coming back! Get a job! Cut your hair!.....................T
The phony peaceniks who protested in Washington. By Christopher Hitchens.
Saturday's demonstration in Washington, in favor of immediate withdrawal of coalition forces from Iraq, was the product of an opportunistic alliance between two other very disparate "coalitions." Here is how the New York Times described the two constituenciess of the event:
"The protests were largely sponsored by two groups, the Answer Coalition, which embodies a wide range of progressive political objectives, and United for Peace and Justice, which has a more narrow, antiwar focus."
The name of the reporter on this story was Michael Janofsky. I suppose that it is possible that he has never before come across "International ANSWER," the group run by the "Worker's World" party and fronted by Ramsey Clark, which openly supports Kim Jong-il, Fidel Castro, Slobodan Milosevic, and the "resistance" in Afghanistan and Iraq, with Clark himself finding extra time to volunteer as attorney for the génocidaires in Rwanda. Quite a "wide range of progressive political objectives" indeed, if that's the sort of thing you like. However, a dip into any database could have furnished Janofsky with well-researched and well-written articles by David Corn and Marc Cooper—to mention only two radical left journalists—who have exposed "International ANSWER" as a front for (depending on the day of the week) fascism, Stalinism, and jihadism.

Christopher is righ on about the drooling imbeciles that are protesting, but he forgot to mention their fragrance. Oh well, I guess Ann Coulter will get around to it tomorrow.

Right on, Splugy! The political office-hilders on the left I can stomach. It's the "impartial" press that I detest and loath. Dan Rather STILL thinks he was "targeted" and that memogate was real! these fanatics have darn near cost us the war. Where would we be if the Republicans had taken such a stance in WWII?!
