So Jimmy Breslin of Newsday is unhappy with Hillary Clinton's stand on Iraq. Well, well. My heart simply bleeds for Brelsin's unhappiness. While I would agree that Hillary is probably one of the most dishonest and thoroughly calculating politicians in recent history, I think Mr. Breslin's rant says more about his own beliefs and preferences than it does about Hillary Clinton. The Press hass long tried to pretend that they are objective, but here Breslin clearly thinks that because he opposes the President Bush's policies, Hillary should come out against them as well. Unfortunately for Mr Breslin, the majority of Americans, despite the Media's five years of attacks on the President, disinformation and outright lying, still think that we should not cut and run from Iraq- despite the wishes of many Democrats and the vast majority of the Exempt Media. And last itme I checked, the United States was a representative republic. That menas, Mr. Breslin, that just because a majority in the Press longs for an American defeat. The majority of real Americans, not the hypocrites who populate Hollywood and most pressrooms, are not cowards nor are they willing to see their country defeated.
As has been said many times before, we can have a real debate regarding the intellignece (or lack thereof) that led up to the invasion of Iraq. We can have a debate on whether or not the strategy first implemented was correct. However, events are going our way now (though the Exempt Media is doing their best to ignore it) and a pullout now would unquestionablly be seen both as a sign of weakness and as a defeat. That is the last thing we want. We have the Muslim terrorists on the run at present, Mr Breeslin. bi Laden is hiding in a cave, and the al Quaeda leadership is decimated and depressed. The only thing keeping them in this fight is the US media with their treasonous support. And your lack of understanding as regards military strategy is shocking for someone whose job it is to present events to the nation. Tell me again what qualifications are required to be a 'professional' journalist?
