Iraqi Elections Success, Terrorists defeated. Critics proven wrong

This post is just a gloat. We got rid of Saddam. Democracy is now in place in Afghanistan, the Ukraine, and Iraq. The terrorists have suffered a MAJOR blow on their own terms.

From a human rights, war on terror, and general security perspective, removing Saddam has turned out to be a major success.

I’m looking for some mea culpa from Josh and Robert.

    ‘You do not own their courage.

    The people who stood in line Sunday did not stand in line to make Americans feel good about themselves.

    You do not own their courage.

    They did not stand in line to justify lies about Saddam and al-Qaeda, so you don’t own their courage, Stephen Hayes. They did not stand in line to justify lies about weapons of mass destruction, or to justify the artful dodginess of Ahmad Chalabi, so you don’t own their courage, Judith Miller. They did not stand in line to provide pretty pictures for vapid suits to fawn over, so you don’t own their courage, Howard Fineman, and neither do you, Chris Matthews.

    You do not own their courage.

    They did not stand in line in order to justify the dereliction of a kept press. They did not stand in line to make right the wrongs born out of laziness, cowardice, and the easy acceptance of casual lying.  They did not stand in line for anyone’s grand designs. They did not stand in line to play pawns in anyone’s great game, so you don’t own their courage, you guys in the PNAC gallery.

    You do not own their courage.

    They did not stand in line to provide American dilettantes with easy rhetorical weapons, so you don’t own their courage, Glenn Reynolds, with your cornpone McCarran act out of the bowels of a great university that deserves a helluva lot better than your sorry hide.  They did not stand in line to be the instruments of tawdry vilification and triumphal hooting from bloghound commandos.  They did not stand in line to become useful cudgels for cheap American political thuggery, so you don’t own their courage, Freeper Nation.

    You do not own their courage.

    They did not stand in line to justify a thousand mistakes that have led to more than a thousand American bodies.  They did not stand in line for the purpose of being a national hypnotic for a nation not even their own.  They did not stand in line for being the last casus belli standing. They did not stand in line on behalf of people’s book deals, TV spots, honorarium checks, or tinpot celebrity. They did not stand in line to be anyone’s talking points.

    You do not own their courage.

    We all should remember that.’
