New York Times: Pull Out of Iraq Now

by Sean Hackbarth

Did the NY Times editorial board decide to outsource its page to France? They sound as eager to surrender as they do:

It is time for the United States to leave Iraq, without any more delay than the Pentagon needs to organize an orderly exit.

It is frighteningly clear that Mr. Bush’s plan is to stay the course as long as he is president and dump the mess on his successor. Whatever his cause was, it is lost.

Do the editorial writers even read their own paper? They know damn well what President Bush’s cause in Iraq is. He wants to build a free, stable country that won’t be a platform for Islamist terrorism. These people aren’t just weak-willed Bush bashers they’re ignorant fools.

And how’s this for NY Times illogic. The editorial reads, “Americans must be clear that Iraq, and the region around it, could be even bloodier and more chaotic after Americans leave.” Yet in the next paragraph it reads, “But Americans must be equally honest about the fact that keeping troops in Iraq will only make things worse.” Iraq will be worse if U.S. troops leave or stay. Do editors actually edit NY Times editorials?

Ace expains the Left’s fruitless endeavor:

The left has a tricky mission here: In order to sound like they’re not coming from cloud cuckoo land, they have to acknowledge that a withdrawal from Iraq would be disastrous, which the vicious lying demagogue Bush also asserts. But, having conceded a defeat in Iraq would be catastrophic, they then have to go on to argue that this catastrophic defeat would actually, somehow, be in the American interest, and such a catastrophic failure could even be a success of sorts.

This is all in the first half of the editorial. Don’t bother reading the rest, not with this amount of illogic and useful ignorance contained in it.

The Joint Chiefs of Editors. Wow, just wow. Is there anything these guys don’t know?

And hey, like conservatives always say – zero out of three ain’t bad!

Oh, wait. Actually that is kind of bad, isn’t it?
