Pathetic crybabies whine against war

What the hell is Robert Fisk talking about here??? I wasn't even going to bother reading this (I haven't read all the mites of antimight featured in this article either; just look at the freaking headline of the thing for a taste of the idiocy). But I let curiosity lead me. Now my head hurts. Here's why. Fisk says:

I wouldn't say I was part of an anti-war campaign.

Then he goes on to babble about his parents' experience of war and the battlefields they took him to, blah blah blah. I'm not sure how that is supposed to prove he is not antiwar; maybe he got a disapproving phone call from an elderly relative. But then, further down, we get:

What we should be asking ourselves is, what should we have done to prevent this situation? But it's always what shall we do now?

Let me ask this (update: I've put the rest in the extended entry field):

What. The. Fuck. Does. That. Have. To. Do. With. Solving. ANYTHING????

Of course, it doesn't. Every problem in the world that is solved, every trouble spot that is made untroubled, is one less place for Fisk to perform his patented sob-sister act over. It's that much less Exciting Career as a Journalist in the Danger Zone and much more ending his days writing obits for the village weekly. It's all about his career and his fame. I can't explain this blast of antilogic from the antimatter universe any other way.

As for the rest of the saddoes interviewed in the article, they are all of a piece: all stuck in that hide-the-ring-and-never-speak-of-it-again moment in Fellowship of the RIng, never getting to "What can I do." Action is anathema to these jellyfish of the left, fobbing off problems onto someone else and then blaming everyone but themselves for the inevitable disaster. "Make the war go away, Mommy!" A bunch of Fred Dursts, all of them.

What could we have done to prevent having to put up with a sniveling, self-important prig like Robert Fisk? Outside of a time machine and Dr. Welby's Instant Vasectomy Kit, I mean?

My take on this is just a little different, Andrea. The Left's concentration on the past and our past errors does indeed ignore the requirement to act, but it has another aspect to it as well: It allows the leftist to remain focused on his main enthusiasm, condemning the United States.

It has never been so clear before that, for the Left, the crisis in the Middle East, including the question of deposing Saddam Hussein by force, is really about thwarting American power and opposing American interests. The CIA could produce a photograph of Saddam Hussein parachuting out of the plane that smashed into the Pentagon, and their stance would not change.

Steven Den Beste has made some incisive observations about this, as well.

So you guys know that the CIA was responsible for putting the Saddam in power and that America called him an alley and publicly supported him WHILE AND AFTER HE GASSED THE KURDS right? So why do you guys act all rightous in yer cry Iraqi blood. Why don't you at least go to war with the justification that America is responsible for correcting it's own mistake?

Obviously, Andrew, you have not read any of the other entries on my blog, or you would have seen the one where I pointed out that one of the things the left should be applauding us for is that this war will correct the results of some of our mistakes. But you aren't interested in actually learning anything about the people whose blogs you troll, are you? Don't start a fight here; I will simply remove all of your comments and ban your IP. This is not a debating society; get your own blog, or go to someone else's blog until you find someone who cares what you think.

And to spare you the effort of typing out a whinge about "free speech rights," you have none on my blog which I pay for, not you. I don't let strangers piss on my carpet, and I refuse to let them piss in my webspace.

yeah i figured you would do something like that. I realized this isn't a place for the open movement of ideas when I first got hear. You don't want to hear it, just erase it and pretend it dosn't exist. God bless America!

Is that more clear? Do I have to fucking have Hotmail pull your account. (Why is it all the wankers have Hotmail accounts? Do they get off on all the Korean teenage dwarf porn spam?)

"God bless America" -- damn right! That means the owner of this property has the right to exclude anyone as she sees fit.

But since the cockroach obviously has no such property of his own, that wouldn't occur to him.

Apparently even Blogger is too expensive and complicated for him to master.

Actually, the CIA did not put Saddam in power. He did it all by his homicidal self.

Posted by: Joanne Jacobs at February 28, 2003 at 10:10 PM

You'll never get the 'noids to admit that. They see the CIA in their corn flakes. I keep expecting one of them to start babbling about fluoridation being a rightwing plot to hypnotize us all to vote Republican.

I love you and everything you say.

Would you have my babies?
