War and Peace: What War? (Why the left is made of fail Part II)

It seems that a change of presidents has changed the agenda of the far left.

Remember Bush’s War[tm]? Remember all those children in Iraq/Afghanistan that were beling killed by Bushhitler?
The left did, right up until a few months ago.

“It’s not getting much attention, but the Netroots Nation conference (formerly known as YearlyKos, a spinoff from the left-wing website DailyKos) is going on in Pittsburgh this weekend. Democratic pollster Stanley Greenberg has conducted a straw poll of the participants and found that a majority of those surveyed, 53 percent, say they “cannot support a health care reform bill that does not include a public option.” Other results include word that most of the attendees are willing to compromise a bit on environmental legislation, even though it gives a lot of benefits to big corporations, and the finding that, amazingly enough, attendees voice near-unanimous approval, 95 percent, of the job Barack Obama is doing as president.

What’s truly striking in Greenberg’s poll is the degree to which the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have fallen off the progressive radar. ”

The netroots agenda: War? What war?, Byron York, Washington Examiner.

The war in Iraq and Afghanistan was Bush’s to win or lose. Mostly lose according to the rabid left. The wikipedia entry for ANSWER, CODE PINK et. al. is filled with crap about peace, racism and other blather, but the truth is more about hatred of the US and former President Bush.

Even Cindy Sheehan is falling from the spotlight. Much was made of the mother of a fallen soldier protesting outside of Crawford Texas (Bush’s ranch). BUt she turned out to be a whore for the cameras, seeking publicity and fame over her son’s casket. Now that the left has moved on, she’s a ghost:

“Cindy Sheehan is learning that. She’s still protesting the war, and on Monday she announced plans to demonstrate at Martha’s Vineyard, where President Obama will be vacationing.

“We as a movement need to continue calling for an immediate end to the occupations [in Iraq and Afghanistan] even when there is a Democrat in the Oval Office,” Sheehan said in a statement. “There is still no Noble Cause no matter how we examine the policies.”

Give her credit for consistency, if nothing else. But her days are over. The people who most fervently supported her have moved on.”– For the Left, war without Bush is not war at all
By: Byron York , Washington Examiner

“It’s such a sad story. Martha Raddatz [of ABC News] wrote a terrific book about one battle that took place in Iraq, and it was the battle in which Cindy’s son was killed. And you look at somebody like that and you think here’s somebody who’s just trying to find some meaning in her son’s death. And you have to be sympathetic to her. Anybody who has given a son to this country has made an enormous sacrifice, and you have to be sympathetic. But enough already.
Charles Gibson, ABC News quoted by Byron Gibson

It was all about Bush, the Republicans and hatred of the same. Without a draft, with out Bush no groundswell of rage, no protests, no marches, nothing. Except outside the far left, the commies and their fellow travelers in universities and the media.

Even an organization that purports to be for veterans against the war (Iraq Veterans Against the War) is more about coating far left communism/socialism in olive drab than actually helping veterans. From advocating sabotage of military equipment to putting smelly hippies in cammies out front of protests, they have not done a thing for real veterans. Many active duty soldiers coached by anti-war groups have seen their sentences for awol/missing movement maxed. Many of their more public members had no duty in Iraq.

So waht is the take home message? The left is still made of fail. Parlor Pinks who are all talk until actual work has to be done. They were never in any danger or being drafted or seeing their civil liberties eroded. They care nothing about the people of Iraq or Afghanistan, or US troops. They would have supported US troops and ther mission overseas if the really cared about peace. Instead they wanted the US to lose. A bloodbath is sexy to them, dead bodies (any dead bodies) prove that Bush is bad. Now that the US presence in Iraq is winding down and troop levels in Afghanistan are increasing, not a peep from the left.

It was never about the war, it never was.
