THREE weeks into the Iraqi War, the cancerous Ba'athist regime has been destroyed, and the hunt for Saddam has become a bunker-buster version of the carnival game in which the chipmunk's head pops up through a hole in the board, and you clobber him with a mallet.

My next guess is they will start to take up the cause of North Korea. They will have a problem, because North Korea will be much, much more suspect about letting ANY westerners in to propagandize and 'shield'.
The phenomenon here will be the same as seen in many other countries.
The leftists are full of shit when they say they are interested in "the people of _______". They only want to donate time and money and assist through official channels when the people live under oppression. When they are finally freed from oppression, as in Nicaragua, these do gooders just leave for another destination.
THEY HAVE NO INTEREST IN HELPING 'THE PEOPLE' IN COUNTRIES THAT HAVE LEFT TYRANNY UNDER U.S. ASSISTANCE
What a bunch of phonies! They just used the Iraqi people as tools for their political points. They could not care less. They will NEVER stay behind and keep assisting the Iraqi people through aid and development programs under a US interim administration.
Folks, I have family who are deep into this cult, and this description hits the nail on the head. There has been nothing but deep sighs, and dispair that the imperialist U.S. has conquered the oppressed people of Iraq. I have given up trying to reason, or engage them as they have already drunk the kool-aid and there's no turning back.
I differ on this one point - I beleive that the antiwar effort, as presented and backed by ANSWER and the like, should be condemned with great harshness. Their goal isn't anti-war anyway; its anti-America, anti-Capitalism, and anti-Bush. Its easy to see through their motives.
That is so correct. Socialism has always failed. It is a flawed principal and goes against the grain of that which is human nature. This isn't just about the failure of Saddam's socialist/totalitarian regime; it is also about the failing French and German socialist societies which have come to rely on cheap Iraqi oil and slave-labor to prop up their otherwise low-productivity societies. France in particular has coasted on the backs of their brutal puppet, Iraq.
"Oppressed people" are only players in their own dramas. I tell you, they care NOTHING about the tortures inflicted by Saddam on his people. Their only care is when the malevolent U.S. intervenes to impose its power on these oppressed "people of color."
I am not kidding, it is this seriously delusional.
It is for this reason that I came to the conclusion that leftist/liberalism is a mental illness. It is a NEED to be adverserial. It masks great anger. No entity can live up to the standards which they impose ON OTHERS.
It is a way of avoiding looking at themselves.
And then there's that moment when you wake up in the morning....
Right about now, the useful idiots are looking for a new cause to champion, and North Korea is looking for useful idiots to champion their cause in the West.
The usual socialist suspects will suddenly discover that two million North Koreans have died of famine, almost all the rest are barely living as it is, and guess who's to blame for the suffering of the innocent women and children of North Korea?
I know what you mean. I realized this about my family years ago. Such people are hopeless, with rare exception.
I, as well. Further elaboration is in my post # 15.
