Great post. This guy has a spot on observation of the current situation in this world. Now if only we could get the Media to read this en-mass and learn something from it.

The people who hated us in Iraq hate us still, the people who remember their friends, families, or themselves in prison and how they were treated under Saddam are laughing at the media storm, most of the people outside the Sunni triangle are just wanting improvements in their lives.

People want security and an end to the danger. There is a war to win...that war is to help Iraqis achieve representative government and security.

However, as Bill Clinton recently pointed out, between 1991 and 1999, the United States freed Kuwait, intervened in Somalia, resolved the Bosnian conflict, and went to war for Kosovo's Albanians. In each case, the United States helped Muslims and did so (except for the Gulf War) despite the absence of any traditional national interest requirement.

This brings up a fourth common assumption of the leftist: results don't matter, it's the intent that counts. Uh, make that five common assumptions, character doesn't matter in a leader if the leader is a flim-flam man of the left.

it would be much easier to take seriously their hopes for a better world if they appeared ready to confront the messy one we have.

I think the author is a bit naive. I think the problem is not lazy "journalists." IMO mainstream media employees are not journalists, they are activists. Their "issues" are not issues. They are weapons. There is only one issue: the end of the United States in whole or in part.
