Marin - Out of the Hot Tub...
... and into the fires of idiocy.
It never ceases to amaze me how our peacenik Left, as personified by the soft and mellow liberals of Marin County, CA (Taliban Johnny Walker excepted), just doesn't get it when it comes to the sad reality of war, the perils of protecting and promoting freedom, and the realpolitik of foreign policy.
Of all the horrible things done to people around the world by terrible governments, the silly fools protest against the Bush administration and the possibly imminent war with Iraqi. No one rational likes or yearns for war, and to accuse the Bush administration of war mongering simply because of oil or because the Pentagon wants to test drive a few new killer toys is plain folly.
Where were these people when the Taliban was executing women in stadiums, when Sadam gassed the Kurds, when (insert African dictator of choice) slaughtered his own people? The Marin moral relativists say nothing about the gross injustices suffered abroad (who are we to judge, they quip?), then turn around and accuse their own country of blood lust.
How utterly out of touch these poor people really are. God bless them and the freedom our great country provides them to practice their idiocy unmolested by the steady winds of adult responsibility and complex decision making.
"Wearing nothing but afternoon rain, 50 determined women lay down on Love Field near the Green Bridge Tuesday afternoon to literally embody PEACE and "show solidarity with the people of Iraq," said the organizers. ... "They wanted to unveil the truth about the horrors of war, to commune in their nudity with the vulnerability of Iraqi innocents, and to shock a seemingly indifferent Bush Administration into paying attention." ... these women are not convinced by Bush Administration fear mongering that one more person should die," organizers said. They hope the president and news media take notice."
