The Democrats' First 100 Hours, Part I: Surrender

Gateway Pundit offers a translation of Nancy Pelosi's demands that the United States surrender in Iraq:

...Not content with mass murder and genocide in Southeast Asia after America's cessation of aid behind a democratic Congress in the 1970's... ...Speaker Pelosi paved the way this morning for the next killing fields... This time in Iraq.

Nancy Pelosi announced today that Democrats do not intend to fund the war in Iraq if they decide it is not worth it. If this sounds familiar, Democrats did the same thing years ago in Southeast Asia...

And Jules Crittenden describes the inevitable outcome of such a foolish plan.

[The Democratic Option is:] Pull out. Achieve short-term gratification for those who believe our absence from Iraq will solve our problems. Watch Iraq descend into further violence. Watch a nuclear-armed Iran come to dominate Iraq and the world's richest oil fields.

...Maybe we'll be restored to our national senses, as we were a decade after Vietnam, when we woke up and realized we never really had the luxury of disengaging from the fight... This time, it will be harder... The only good side to this is the army gets to rest. Don't count on the Democratic Congress to refit or build it up, or to do anything but dither when we need to use it again.

...I predict a dark age, in which brutal second-rate powers such as Russia, China, Iran and North Korea do what they choose to whom they choose without restraint. An age of modern warlords, with no over-arching, feared power to keep them in check. We can watch the sick man that is Europe slowly succumb. We can watch small free nations try to fend for themselves. We can await the inevitable nuclear crisis.

Does that sound at all medieval or apocalyptic? It is. Don't think we can't go back to that... Does it sound overly melodramatic and alarmist? If so, you're a fool with no understanding of history...

Wait! You're saying that brilliant media personalities like Rosie O'Donnell and Joy Behar are uneducated buffoons who have never read a history book in their lives? Do tell.

And the Democrats' House Intelligence Chairman, Silvestre Reyes, doesn't know the difference between Sunni and Shia?

Well, what could possibly go wrong with the Democratic strategy of retreat as Iran's mullahs prepare for the arrival of the Mahdi?

I could think of a couple of things, but maybe I'm just a pessimist who's read too much history.

Oven-baked good readin', just like Mama used to make:
Hang Right Politics, Rick Moran, Riehl World View, RWN, STACLU
