The usual ideological suspects descended on Washington over the weekend to protest the war in Iraq.
Their supporters spent a lot of money on sophisticated commercials featuring war widows and mothers who lost their sons or husbands.
They accuse the president of lying about weapons of mass destruction.
A new CNN/USA Today/Gallup Poll shows fewer than half the public believes the U.S. will win the war in Iraq.
No wonder, considering the way the media has been presenting this war.
All of this is giving aid and comfort to the Islamo-fascists.
Like the North Vietnamese and Viet Cong who later testified that the American anti-war movement kept them going and convinced them they could win, the American left is undermining an even more important war effort which will not end if we prematurely cut and run, but will escalate.
Unlike Vietnam, this is a world war.
If America leaves Iraqis who have voted for their leaders and are about to vote on a new constitution, we will have lost whatever moral authority we have to stand against evil.
