Liberty Loses

Jermayakovka puts together a lucid assessment of the defeatist-mongers' organized attempt to ensure America's defeat with a "slow bleed" . Seventeen Republicans have also signed onto this "slow bleed" strategy. It's astonishing to see what some will do in the pursuit of power:

Abe Miller laments the lose-at-all-costs liberalism that reigns in the (so-called) culture in "The Sacrifice in Iraq and its Betrayal":

As V.S. Naipaul once said: At Oxford, in his day, everyone knew that English literature was not a serious subject.

Today, however, he adds, it is not even a subject. And the list extends far beyond English literature. We are a corrupt society, a society without honor, but not because of those who project power to defend us on foreign soil or those who bear the burden of our defense, but because of those who would cynically manipulate such sacrifices for the pursuit of power.

Yes, there were numerous tactical and strategic errors made in Iraq. I could list them better than any critic of the war. After all, I spent three decades studying collective violence, insurgency and civil disorder. If you ceased, however, to prosecute a war because of errors, you’d never win one.

Thankfully not all are shameless and know what's at stake.

Make sure you watch the video prepared by Rep. Eric Cantor, chief Deputy Whip. It's an absolute MUST SEE. To watch the video Click Here. Excerpt From the video:

Ronald Regaen: Alexander Hamilton said a nation which can prefer disgrace to danger is prepared for a master and deserves one...every lesson of history tells us that the greater risk lies in appeasement and this is the spectre that our well-meaning liberal friends refuse to face that their policy of accommodation is appeasement and it gives no choice between peace and war, only between fight or surrender.

This is so true what Reagan and Hamilton said. I'm glad I'm not alone in my reasoning. :)
