And They Said It Wouldn’t Happen

The Iraqi elections were a big success, to judge by the numbers of voters that showed up at the polls, including the selfsame Sunnis who had boycotted the last election. In fact, many of the polls at which Sunnis voted were secured by Saddamist Sunni guerillas to protect voters from their al-Qaeda fellow travellers, who had, in advance, proclaimed that anyone who took part in the democratic process would be branded infidels and treated accordingly.

Many “experts” completely ignore these developments and say that Iraq is engaged in a civil war. Well, there aren’t a whole lot of civil warriors over there, the insurgency by actual Iraqis, while perhaps larger than the number of so-called foreign fighters, is still a drop in the bucket compared to the millions of pro-democracy Iraqis.

Then there are those who claim that there is no chance of Iraq ever achieving democracy, “because it isn’t the way of such people, they have lived under the rule of dictators and monarchs for too many centuries and it is all they know.”

Well, it would appear that the Iraqi people let their fingers do the talking — the purple ones, that is, cheerfully and enthusiastically.

They have shown that they welcome the opportunity of self government, that they cherish the right to speak freely(as evidenced by all of the newspapers that have appeared in the wake of the Hussein regime’s demise), and that their courage is up to the task of fighting for their freedom.

Prior to the elections,

One anecdote from Mosul,” said General Peter Pace, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, when he spoke at the National Defense University earlier this month. “There was a police recruiting station. Forty young men lined up to sign up to become Iraqi policemen. A vehicle-borne IED explodes — kills or badly injures 12 of them. The next day, the 28 remaining return to the same spot to sign up to be policemen.

“And that kind of courage,” the general told his audience, “is being shown across Iraq by literally thousands and thousands of Iraqis who want to serve their country.”

After the elections,

The basic gist: Iraqis were pleased as punch to be able to choose whomever they wanted to run their country.

So now we’re there, we’re at the point in Iraq that they have established the government that will lead them for the next four years, a government by the people, of the people and for the people(wish I’d said that). We’ve helped establish an educational system that is already teaching thousands of knowledge hungry children, including girls, who might otherwise have never had the opportunity to learn and we’re training their army and police to carry on after our troops have been pulled out.

We are successfully engendering a democracy where there was none in the Arab world, despite overt and covert resistance by many of Iraq’s neighbors, and in so doing starting a chain reaction that must certainly lead to positive political changes throughout the region, changes that will inevitably be of benefit to our own national security.

We saw the future the terrorists intend for our nation on that fateful morning of September the 11th, 2001. That day we learned that vast oceans and friendly neighbors are no longer enough to protect us. September the 11th changed our country; it changed the policy of our government. We adopted a new strategy to protect the American people: We would hunt down the terrorists wherever they hide; we would make no distinction between the terrorists and those who harbor them; and we would advance our security at home by advancing freedom in the Middle East.

Our President is right(yes, he is, thank God, both ways), and despite the anti-war, anti-Bush, anti-America, anti-American way rantings of the Angry Left, who couldn’t care less that we’ve freed a nation from a murderous, oppressive tyrant and planted the seed of democracy in a region that spawns the worst possible enemies of the American way of life, are more concerned with their hatred of the Chief Executive(he won, you see, beat both straw man Algore and traitor Kerry, so they are very angry, indeed) than they are with less important issues like homeland security and freedom for the citizens of countries ruled by people who would make Idi Amin Dada look benevolent.

George W. Bush is 100% correct. We must stay the course in order to give the Iraqi people a chance to get their democracy sorted out, now that they have voted.

Sure, we have politicians like Durbin, Dean and Kerry committing verbal treason, making statements that would cause them to disappear in the kind of country they would have the United States become, their words serving only to embolden our enemy and get more U.S. military people killed, but that’s of no concern to them: They can blame the results of their crimes on the Bush Administration in an effort to further their own careers while concealing their own complicity.

These are true scumbags, traitors whose only concerns are their own political fortunes, who are elected and reelected by morons and both witting and unwitting fellow traitors. These followers, those who march to their baseless ideals and bumper sticker slogans are simpletons, cowards, gullible fools, pseudointellectuals and fellow wannabe socialists. People who either haven’t a clue as to how good they’ve got it as Americans or who would prefer life under a regime more in tune with Karl Marx than with Samuel Adams.

The cartoon-like, fanatic rantings of self-seeking politicians like Kerry and Dean or lying moonbats like Michael Moore and Cindy Sheehan are actually palatable to these poor, stupid souls, the anti-American, anti-life and anti-God policies of organizations like the ACLU their sources of “spiritual” nourishment, their well received anti-Christ, their life’s message anti-based. They want to destroy the most precious political philosophy-cum-reality in the history of the earth and don’t even know why, or that they are even trying to do so.

Iraq is the focal point of a great battleground whose alternative may well be the road to Armageddon(and here I am, a Jew whose religious beliefs end with the Old Testament), not that which ends the New Testament, but one which could well culminate in catastrophes whose effects could easily make even the least religious among us wish for the Biblical version.
