We're not giving up. We're waiting for a better opportunity to win.

Today's Lecture
PROTEST THERAPY

By RALPH PETERS
LAST weekend, 100,000 Americans protested in Washington, demanding that we bring our troops home now. It was a fascinating installment in our nation's self-therapy craze.

Set aside the get-Bush-at-any-cost political hustlers, the earnest college students not yet seasoned by reality, the Jew-baiting free-Palestine detachments and the very few who have thought seriously about the war and found it lacking.

You're left with the legions of Cindy Sheehan wannabes — meandering souls who, were they only capable of honesty, would be wearing t-shirts that read, "It's not about the war, it's about me!"

Were we able to psychologically profile the demonstrators, we'd find that most of them have a great deal in common: Disappointing lives, failed relationships and the desperate need for a cause of any kind. If we weren't at war, they'd be marching to save pinworms from drug-company aggression.

Of course, opposing a war involving American troops is the best cause of all. Our country has disappointed the protesters intimately — failing to hand them, free and clear, the lives to which they feel themselves entitled. So forget that our troops are re-enlisting at record rates and willingly risking their lives in a war they believe in. The self-satisfying cry of the demonstrators is "Bring Our Troops Home Now!"

It would be far easier to be sympathetic if a single spokesperson for the media-amplified anti-war movement laid out a convincing model of what would happen in Iraq or Afghanistan if our troops just came home.

Please. Tell me: What becomes of Iraq if we just pull out? (Full Article)

"I did not vote for Obama but he is remarkable. In less than three weeks in office he has collected more than $150,000 in back taxes."

Thanks for that Rodger. I wish I could think and write that lucidly. Peters further diminished the Left's stature with a cut so sharp and deftly applied that the poor dumb bastards don't even know they've been cut off at the knees yet.

So where did the 100,000 number come from?????? I've seen estimates ranging from 2,000 to 5,000.

Did the NPS or DC police provide an "official" number?

I'm glad somebody else questioned this 100K moonbat figure. I briefly hit the channel carrying coverage of this unwashed-hippy-wannbe non-event and I oly saw about 200 tops.
