AM I the only one who’s noticed the silence? Mere months ago, left-wing bloggers and demonstrators were wailing Support our troops, bring them home! seven days a week. Now their presidential candidate has announced that he won’t bring all those troops home, but will simply transfer combat forces from Iraq to Afghanistan – expanding that war. (He’s discussed possibly invading Pakistan, too.) And the left’s quiet as a graveyard at midnight.
Hmmm, it is awful quiet all of a sudden.
Bush is on the way out – are your principles leaving with him? Have you stopped to wonder if BHO might not be your LBJ? You told us that “War doesn’t change anything,” and “War is never the answer.” Shouldn’t you be lobbying your candidate to give peace a chance? Shame, shame, shame. You’ve elevated hypocrisy to an art form.
This piece was spot-on-the-money. The anti-war movement’s mantras are silent, and the only explanation is that they were never sincerely anti-war; just political catalysts for expressing an anti-Bush sentiment.
