Retreat in Defeat?

In the months before the invasion of Iraq in 2003 we heard the expression "drumbeat towards war" in reference to the rhetoric from the White House in trying to convince the American people that Saddam Hussein would never lead Iraq towards being peace loving nation in the international community. What we have now is a drumbeat towards defeat by the liberals in our country.

Babalu has a link to a great video about this, but I want to add one thought. Wasn't it these same leftists and liberals that warned us that if we went to war in Iraq that we'd have to be prepared to stay there to rebuild the country? The same people who say the reconstruction of Iraq is too expensive are the same ones that are willing to send hundreds of millions of dollars to any other country in the form of foreign aid. How cynical can you be?

Good point Conductor. Not to mention the billions tossed to their failed entitlement programs.

Dear friend Ziva, allow me to correct you: it's been trillions since LBJ. What has been the return on our investment?

Less than zero, much less.
