Will Someone Please Shut Him Up

After slandering American forces, John Murtha has decided to take his bid for majority leader one step further. He is now going after his country and his fellow Americans by claiming we are worse than brutal dictators such as Kim Jong-Il and the Iranian regime. (Daily Star) American presence in Iraq is more dangerous to world peace than nuclear threats from North Korea or Iran, Rep. John Murtha, D-Pa., said to an audience of more than 200 in North Miami Saturday afternoon…

According to Murtha, who happens to be a moron, the United States fighting Al Qaeda while trying to establish a democracy in the Middle East is more dangerous than Iran building nuclear weapons and North Korea about to test a long range ballistic missile? Either he truly hates his country or his rhetoric speaks to how beholden the Democrats are to the far-left.

He does know that the United States is responsible for more people being free than any other country on this planet, right? The only reason Taiwan hasn’t been invaded by China and put under communist dictatorship is because of the US. The only reason South Korea is free and currently prospering is because of the United States. Without the Untied States the entire European continent would be under Nazi or Communist Rule... But why let American sacrifice and its protection of millions of people get in the way of gaining support from the whacked left.

Come to think about it, I don't even understand his claim. A) World peace is an unrealistic notion that history and reality has proven to be impossible. Therefore, that premise automatically makes his argument unsound. B) If world peace was possible, which it’s not, the United States has, by far, been the catalyst for that possibility. Not to mention that the freedom to fight terrorism and depose brutal tyrants is, believe it or not, a testament to the notion of "world peace". Meaning the only way we would have no wars between nations is if the entire world was under one totalitarian rule.

Anyway, anti-war nuts are so simpleminded that they believe no war equals world peace. When in reality no war equals being content with tyranny, oppression, dictatorship and genocide. And so, in order to get their support, people like Murtha are willing to betray their country and the military. The far-left base of the Democratic Party is so out of touch that they don't care about what’s good for the country or what’s the right policy, they just want to hear high-ranking democrats say what Murtha is saying.
