Ace must've used some brainwave reading machine, because he nails my thoughts down rather nicely.
If the left consists of such kill-crazy super-terrorist-keyboard-warriors as they so often claim, who are really, really are eager to fight the "right war" against terror (generally defined as any war the US is not actually involved in, or about to enter), then why are they incapable of supporting Israel's war against a group which is
1) unambiguously terroristic,
2) without any legitimate claims to land (as Hamas might have),
3) supported and armed by Iran, the country they often claim is the country we should have fought instead of Iraq (of course, had we done so, they'd've said we should have fought Iraq instead),
4) provoked Israel into an unavoidable defensive War of Necessity, not a "War of Choice," by raining rockets upon its cities
5) is furthermore required by the UN -- the UN! -- to disarm and cease all illegal paramilitary attacks on Israel?
All the usual prerequisites the left usually lists for gaining their blessing for war are easily met here. And yet-- no blessing.
In essence, the Left has exposed itself to be bigger terrorism supporters than anything we at the Right could have guessed. There is no nuance here. Hezbollah fires rockets into civilian towns. That the wrong thing to do. Hezbollah targets civilians. That is the wrong thing to do. Hezbollah hides behind civilians, and bases their operations out of civilian areas such as apartment buildings, schools, and hospitals. That is the wrong thing to do! Israel is defending themselves from a group of terrorists who receive money and weapons from Iran and Syria, who target women and children, who kill as randomly as possible, who are operating illegally out of a sovereign nation in defiance of international law, the list goes on and on.
And yet, the Left, both international and here in America, do not, cannot, and will not support Israel's war against Hezbollah. A war that is needed to protect and defend the citizens of Israel.
If they cannot support this war, then it is clear to anyone with half a mind that they will not support any war against terrorism, and thus are on the side of the terrorists. Plain and simple. What was it that Orwell said? "A pacifist is essentially pro-fascist." Well, it's time to update that - "A pacifist is essentially pro-terrorist."
If you do nothing but prevent, hinder, or otherwise impede the war against a terrorist group, then you are pro-terrorist. When this country eventually ends, whether it be next year or the next millennium, it will be because of people like the American Left, who care more about their politics and gaining power than protecting this country from terrorists.
