Diplomad Endorsing Bush

leave a comment »

Diplomad makes the case for Bush:

The Old Europeans and the NY Times bunch don’t have a clue about how the world works. They think that words equal action; that feel-good resolutions and pronouncements at the UN, the International Criminal Court, or some other international fora will make evildoers reconsider.

In fact, it’s worse than that; they can’t bring themselves to acknowledge the presence of evil, for them disputes are just misunderstandings open to resolution by men of goodwill. The Euros and their American imitators deny that Western civilization survives because the hard-pressed American taxpayer maintains 12 aircraft carrier battle groups, an incredibly lethal air force, and divisions of superbly trained and motivated marines and soldiers ready, willing and demonstrably able to reach out and “touch” any corner of the globe.

The same crowd who told us the USSR was a superpower with whom we needed to reach an accommodation, now tell us that the USSR was never really a threat and that it “imploded” on its own, not because of anything the USA did. Likewise, they tell us that we are “overreacting” to 9/11 and that, as a consequence, we have lost the sympathy of the world. They deride our patriotism and reverence for the flag, and snicker when we stand at attention at the playing of the Star Spangled Banner. They believe in the Michael Moore version of America. They simply cannot comprehend how it is that rock-and-roll addicted, video game playing, orange-haired, suburban teen-age “mall rats” will respond to their country’s hour of crisis, enlist in overwhelming numbers, and then in weeks take apart the “fierce warriors of Afghanistan” or roll into Baghdad while hardly breaking a sweat.

Again, these people don’t have a clue, and we must not elect a President who takes them seriously. It is a brutal and hard world outside the salons of Paris, Manhattan and Boston; the world is not a trendy 90-minute Hollywood or French movie where the good guys are actually the bad guys, and the bad are actually good, and everybody is some shade of gray.

The enemy is real. The war is real. We are in a fight for our lives. We need a President who understands that: George W. Bush.

And these guys are in the State Department!
