Emotionally Invested in Defeat

In his column, Chucky Hammer quotes a former critic of the Iraq occupation.

"No one can spend some 10 days visiting the battlefields in Iraq without seeing major progress in every area. ... If the U.S. provides sustained support to the Iraqi government -- in security, governance, and development -- there is now a very real chance that Iraq will emerge as a secure and stable state." -- Anthony Cordesman, "The Situation in Iraq: A Briefing from the Battlefield," Feb. 13, 2008.

He also quotes former Democrat Joe Lieberman.

"Democrats have remained emotionally invested in a narrative of defeat and retreat in Iraq."

Sounds right.

There’s one of the defeatist LibDems now, who is so emotionally invested in his petty hatred of Bush that he actually does not want the U.S. to win in Iraq.
Kinda makes you wonder just which side these folks are on.

Bingo.
Lieberman has the Left's (and Dave's) number all right.

Dave, Lieberman doesn't represent Israel or Vermont, he represents Connecticut.

As for your "opinion," about what is good for Israel and the U.S., I'll just say I disagree and leave it at that.

I am impressed that at least you recognize that U.S. involvement in Iraq isn't part of a "zionist conspiracy."
