Back Talk: The Democrats are Lying about the War in Iraq Back Talk: The Democrats are Lying about the War in Iraq

Back Talk: The Democrats are Lying about the War in Iraq points out that the Democrats and the MSM are either lying or very naive. Everything is viewed in the context of the sectarian civil war. Whenever there is a mass atrocity, it is most often blamed on "insurgents" or maybe a bit more accurately, "Sunni insurgents". But if you were to just stop there, where the MSM and the major Democratic politicians do, most of us would think that meant Iraqi Sunni insurgents. It doesn't. It mostly means foreign born Sunni terrorists belonging to, or allied with, al Qaeda, who are using indiscriminate mass violence against mostly civilians in order to try to incite that civil war that everyone keeps talking about. That means that most of those suicide and vehicle bombs that kill so many civilians are not a result of the civil war, but rather a cause of it.

Everyone on the left and in the anti-war movement is so heavily invested in the idea that the War in Iraq is mistaken, lost, etc., and that we should be concentrating on al Qaeda in Afghanistan, and maybe in our putative ally, Pakistan. And so, the reality that al Qaeda is killing a lot more people in Iraq right now than it is anywhere else in the world doesn't fit the story.
