17. Just What Revisions Need...The Left Lost Iraq
Here's your script...someone's just floating it around leftist groups to see if some fish will bite. Looks like we have a winner.

Look at what the Slime Boaters did...they rewrote the anti-war movement...mostly from people who were on the fringes of that movement...and echoed by people who were either in diapers or just glimmers at that time. Yet, ask a Dittohead and he'll say it was "Hanoi Jane" and Kerry and the anti-war people that lost the war since he kissed Ho Chi Mihn's ass.

None of us who protested Vietnam EVER supported the North Vietnamese or Viet Cong...NEVER! Our goal, just like the other posters here, and a vast majority of liberals, progressives and others against the war, is the aspect of American intervention in another sovereign country's affairs, the use of our young men and women and the corporate profiteering wars of this nature breed. Our fights are within this country and the system.

Truth is we have no clue who the "insurgents" are. This isn't an organized resistance that operates newspapers or radio stations or has some "spokesperson" to give some political or religious diatribe. Thus, how can you support someone you don't know. From what I do know about many of Al Queda and the Baathist (and being Jewish), there's no way I condone any of their agenda or can find much common ground with their political or social stands. But, the decision of who rules the people of Iraq...be it Shiite, Baathist, Al Queda, Very Silly Party...it's up to the Iraqi people...not this regime and its corporate profiteers.
