The Axis of Weasels
Germany, France and the anti-American Radical Left

"The Heretical Housewife"
The New York Post has dubbed Germany, France and Belgium the Axis of Weasels. Let's go one better and substitute Belgium with the Left. Over the past few weeks, weve been treated to a a non-ending parade of brainless liberals and celebrities spouting off against President Bush and war with Iraq. War is so, warlike - you know - and war kills people and small, furry animals. Yawn. Lets just dust off that old Sixties slogan, War is not healthy for children and other living things. We can hoist up our signs when marching and trying to make ourselves relevant again.
Funny thing about the anti-war crowd though, they seem more anti-Bush than anti-war. Where were they when Clinton was lobbing missiles at aspirin factories, or when he sent our Rangers to Somalia where several of them were killed? Funny, I remember only silence. Also, the usual culprits have been rounded up to participate - People for the (un) American Way, Move On (a Clinton apologist group) and various Communist, socialist, feminist, gay and environmental extremists. In short, the usual gaggle of leftwing radicals.
Their agenda is always the same. It is anti-capitalist, anti-free-market and anti-American. Their radicalism causes them, ironically, to support tyrants and dictatorial thugs worldwide in order to be on the side opposed to the United States. In their twisted, upside down world Hussein, Castro, Mugabe, Milosevic, Khomeini and, before them, Stalin - are the good guys and Bush is Hitler revised.
At heart, they yearn for the destruction of America, for a free and proud America stands in the way of their fantasy of a perfect socialist paradise. A fantasy which has never occurred, despite the killing of millions of dissenters worldwide. A fantasy which CAN never occur, for it disregards the very nature of man.
The liberals and leftists ignore history and experience at their peril. Throughout the 1920s, Germany made a determined effort to rearm despite this action being specifically prohibited by the Versailles Treaty. France and England, wearied by war, did nothing to enforce the Treaty provisions. We all know what followed these years of inaction and appeasement.
Why should Saddam Hussein be any different than Adolf Hitler? He is likewise an evil man, who brutally oppresses and tortures his own citizens. He has long shown a yearning to exert control over the Middle East, proving it further when he invaded Kuwait. Hussein has had twelve long years to improve his weaponry, and he has been completely unimpeded since the impotent Bill Clinton let him kick out the weapons inspectors without effective reprisals.
If Hussein obtains weapons of mass destruction - biological, chemical or nuclear - does anyone seriously doubt that he will use them for attack either upon us or one of his neighbors? Would the Left prefer to keep dithering while Hussein rebuilds, thereby making the possibility that he, or a recruited terrorist, will attack us again?
Will it take a mushroom cloud over Los Angeles to prove the rest of us right? Where will the empty-headed, chattering chablis and caviar crowd be then?
President Bush has thrown down the gauntlet to the United Nations. Surely, resolutions are toothless unless the words are backed by the threat of military action. The terrorists who killed over 3,000 innocent Americans on September 11th brought this war to us. The evil Islamofacists who convince their youth that killing more of us is Gods Will need to be eliminated - for they squander not only our youth, but their own future generations. Saddam Hussein, whose evil regime provides money, weapons, training and safe harbor to Islamic terrorists, must be removed from power. The oppressed Iraqi people deserve to be free.
The gutless, radical anti-war crowd are using this pending war to take after a President with whom they personally disagree. Their flimsily veiled hypocrisy is noted all around, with great success. When their film careers begin to falter, because the people they mock will no longer watch them, maybe the lights will begin to go on in their muddled brains. Maybe, then, they can move to Germany or France - and more fully join The Axis Of Weasels. ***

Yeah, ain't that odd!
With their actions, they've already admitted it.
The membership of the Left is divided between the Axis of Weasels and the Axis of Evil, with the people Lenin called "useful idiots" falling into the former camp...
