Jim Webb on the Legacy of Vietnam

I just got around to following the Insty linked from his entry referenced below. The Southeast Asian holocaust is something none of my lefty friends has made any attempt to deal with, to my knowledge.

When I think about how I was raised, listening to the Hair soundtrack as my parents and their friends abandoned the South Vietnamese to torture and genocide, I just want to howl in shame and rage.

And it may be about to happen again, in the Middle East. Violence, torture, suffering. The stifling of dissent. Mass murder.

But it's okay, right? "Peace is Patriotic."

Mass murder

And in two years, maybe three, the Usual Suspects will be screaming bloody murder that the USofA isn't doing anything about the on-going genocide in Iraq.

They'll just blame Bush, like they've done since 2003. Iraq wasn't a dangerous place, you know, when Saddam was at the helm: Bush made it so. Fighting terrorists makes terrorists! I guess Hitler wasn't so bad until we declared war against him, too. Fighting Nazis made Nazis.

Joan Baez was the only peace advocate that actually called for action against Pol Pot. Of course by then, the US wouldn't/couldn't touch that with a 10-light-year pole. Jane Fonda was saying we should give Pol Pot a chance, saying that making something good takes time. Heck, Mao had to break a few eggs to make egg foo yung, you know. A Leftist's words never come back to bite them on the ass as long as Leftists write in the future. That's why the US got the blame for doing nothing. Witness the "Killing Fields".

Don't worry. The Global Warming nonsense is designed to neuter the US, and to make us too poor to conduct any war in the future on our own. We'll be Blaster to the EuroLeft Master sitting on our shoulders ala "Thunderdome". In their dreams. . .

The problem with Communism is simply this: power corrupts. Absolute power corrupts absolutely.

Um, ya mean Iraq is not all Bush's fault? Damn, I coulda sworn that it was.

Posted by: PoliticalCritic at February 20, 2007 03:52 PM

No, no, you're right--Iraq is Bush's fault. But only because everything is.

Posted by: Attila Girl at February 20, 2007 06:49 PM

We should give Bush a third term just to teach him a lesson!

People on the Right always tell Lefties to keep drinking their Kool Aid. US Lefties laugh because they know they don't drink Kool Aid. They drink Funny Face. Remember Goofy Grape? Choo-Choo(originally Chinese) Cherry? Rootin' Tootin' Raspberry? Jolly Olly(originally Injun) Orange? What flavors would Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and John Edwards be? Legend has it that Bill was KumQuat. Maybe PoliticalCritic can help me out?

About Joy W. McCann: I've been interviewed for Le Monde and mentioned on Fox News. I once did a segment for CNN on "Women and Guns," and this blog is periodically featured on the New York Times' blog list. My writing here has been quoted in California Lawyer. I've appeared on The Glenn and Helen Show. Oh—and Tammy Bruce once bought me breakfast.
My writing has appeared in
The Noise, Handguns, Sports Afield, The American Spectator, and (it's a long story) L.A. Parent. This is my main blog, though I'm also an alumnus of Dean's World, and I help out on the weekends at Right Wing News.
My political philosophy is quite simple: I'm a classical liberal. In our Orwellian times, that makes me a conservative, though one of a decidedly libertarian bent.
