By betting so much of their political capital on the issue, Reid and Pelosi have become invested in U.S. failure. A U.S. success would throw a wrench in their plans.
This is true, but it's also just the tip of the iceberg. We always assume the lefties aren't thinking long term- that they can't see past the next election to the existential danger this country faces from Islamofascism.
But I just don't think this is true. They DO think long term, and they understand that victory doesn't just loose elections for them, it creates a strong, pro-American, pro-independent national identity that is polar opposite of the socialistic, open-borders world government they so desire.

It does seem like the current struggle is a tipping point for the country. Either America will stand tall, like a shining city on a hill, and continue to help lead the world toward freedom, or else we will be diminished and enter an era (perhaps irrevocably) where we're just like any other nations. We can't really fight, our borders don't matter, our government lords it over the rest of us peasants.
The US will go either one way or the other. And the Left very much wants to lord it over the peasants.
