It's not as if the New York Daily News is any kind of "paper of record" - actually, I don't believe such a thing exists right now - but it is very widely read in and around New York. And it is not as if Denis Hamill is any writer of note; or else his column would not be buried in the Metro section, within the middle of the Style section, filled with circulars. Nevertheless, his name is known in New York, and hopefully he will be remember for some of the traitorous words printed under his byline today:
Except for the final body count, the war in Iraq is over.
But you support the troops, right, Denis? Wonder how good you made them feel today by announcing their unconditional surrender?
...We then turned Afghanistan over to the murderous warlords and opium merchants - whose product probably wound up in the veins of Mellie Carballo and Maria Pesantez, the two coeds who OD'd on heroin a few weeks back on the lower East Side - and declared it a victory for liberal democracy.
Well, that's a lie - maybe Denis forget that the prior government of Afghanistan killed 3,000 of his countrymen? -but only the first of many....
Give it maybe three years after we pull the last troops out - which will start before the 2006 elections for obvious political reasons - and Iraq will be Iran. Ayatollahs will rule. Civil war will rock this sandy asylum. Women will be suppressed. The courts will make decisions based on sharia, Islamic law.
Well, that's not mentioned anywhere in the Iraqi constitution, as far as I know. I do know it requires fully 25% of all parlimentary delegates to be female; which beats the 17% our Congress contains now. And of course Denis quickly forgets American history - it took quite a many year, plus numerous amendments, to make the US Constitution the document it is today. Not to mention a Civil War, alas, but some conflicts are unavoidable and better off fought. Imagine if Hamill's precious UN had been in existence in the 1860's? Two Americas, one where blacks remained slaves, seperated by foreign "peacekeepers", ever at each other's throats? Kinda like the Koreas, I guess...anyway, back to the bile; here Denis dishonors our soldier's sacrafice, telling them it was all for nothing:
None of them could have imagined when they went to Iraq that what they sacrificed - limbs, dead buddies, irretrievable time away from loved ones - was offered so that Ahmed Chalabi, who while on the CIA payroll fed us all that BS about WMD, could get richer as the new oil minister of Iraq. So that Moqtada al-Sadr, the radical Shiite cleric whose militia is suspected in the recent execution of a New York freelancer named Steven Vincent, could become a major player in the new "democratic" Iraq assembly.
Funny how Denis was screaming for "inclusion" and "understanding" the enemy not too long ago. Remember, for the Left, everything America does is purpously malevolent.
Now a final lie, a doozy for those whom visit here often:
That's why Cindy Sheehan helped turn the tide of this war that has become President Bush's Vietnam quagmire. When Cindy Sheehan showed up in Crawford, Tex., where Bush cleared brush on the ranch, she synthesized the collective grief of a Gold Star Motherland
Hardly. She's a nut, and the media will be linked with her they way it was with the infamous National Guard Memos, and its reputation will take another deserved hit.
Back to your well-deserved obscurity, Mr. Hamill. And I am sure the troops protecting your freedom are aware of exactly how much you support them.
