Would That We Could Smash Lefty Media Too

In it's entirety from The Gun Guy
Mission Accomplished

When public support for a war appears to be waning, the inevitable effect is that the morale of the soldiers will suffer—if we shouldn’t be here, goes the question, then why am I risking my life?
Pentagon officials say they are increasingly worried that Washington’s political fight over the Iraq war will dampen what has been high morale among troops fighting a tenacious and deadly enemy.

Commanders are telling Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld that ground troops do not understand the generally negative press that their missions receive, despite what they consider significant achievements in rebuilding Iraq and instilling democracy.

The commanders also worry about the public’s declining support for the mission and what may be a growing movement inside the Democratic Party to advocate troop withdrawal from Iraq.

“They say morale is very high,” said a senior Pentagon official of reports filed by commanders with Washington. “But they relate comments from troops asking, ‘What the heck is going on back here’ and why America isn’t seeing the progress they are making or appreciating the mission the way those on the ground there do. My take is that they are wondering if America is still behind them."
This self-doubt, and the accompanying loss of faith in the cause, is what undermines a war effort.

Of course, this has always been the goal of the anti-war Left and their followers (that would be academia, the Press, and liberals everywhere).

I know what all this is about. The Democrats, facing electoral disaster, are trying to use the war to weaken the Republicans. They don’t care a damn about falling troop morale, or the fact that if we did leave Iraq, the place would disappear into a maelstrom of civil war and death.

None of that matters to the Left. All they care about is regaining control of the government, and they don’t care about Iraqis, or anyone else—power is all that matters to them.

They don’t care that even if we did pull out of Iraq, we’d only have to go back there later, at greater expense and higher loss of life. Just as long as the Democrats can pick up six or seven Senate seats, and dent the Republican majority in the House, and use that to springboard Hillary and Bill Clinton back into the White House—well, who cares if troop morale vanishes? The Democrats hate the military, anyway.

I’m so sick of this. The next time I see some twerp carrying an antiwar sign, I’m going to smash him in the face with a brick. Then I’m going to take a picture of his bleeding face, and send that pic to Stars and Stripes, with the caption: “You do your job over there, and we’ll do ours over here.”

Enough is enough.
Brick, hammer, rock, foot, fist, anything will work.
