Naysayers tight-lipped since success of Iraq vote - The Washington Times: Nation/Politics - February 02, 2005: " Chicago Sun-Times columnist Mark Brown, who has consistently opposed Mr. Bush and the war in Iraq, wrote for yesterday's edition that 'it's hard to swallow,' but 'what if it turns out Bush was right, and we were wrong?'
The Chicago columnist wrote that he was struck by 'television coverage from Iraq that showed long lines of people risking their lives by turning out to vote, honest looks of joy on so many of their faces.'
'If it turns out Bush was right all along, this is going to require some serious penance,' Mr. Brown wrote. "
=================
As refreshing at it would be, and is, to hear the deafening silence from the "naysayers," after the heroic performance of the Iraqi people in the election, this quotation from Mark Brown shows the moral bankruptcy of the left.

What courage Jimmy Carter and his "Carter Center" showed by their cowardice in not going to monitor the elections, choosing rather to stay in Jordan. Those aged and crippled Iraqis who were carried to the polls had more guts than the whole bunch of carping crybabies in the blue states.

But the worst is the pragmatic ethics of Brown and the rest of his band of brothers. "If it turns out that Bush was right..." What a revelation of Brown's ethical temperature. If it works it's right. How far we have come from Patrick Henry and Nathan Hale.

Modern Pasty Henry "Give liberty unless it carries a risk of death. Then, don't bother. I won't fight for liberty unless I can be assured that I will win the battle and come out o.k."

Modern Nathan Hell: "I regret that I have only one life to give for my country. Because I have only one life, why should I give it for my country? What good will that do me? I won't be around to enjoy my country and don't enjoy it much now anyway. The war in Iraqi is for oil and what good does that do me. What a stinking world we live in."

But history does not belong to the morally bankrupt. I would rather be a Islamic fundamentalist fighting for Allah than one of this crowd that lives for nothing. Shame, shame, shame. It is better to die for something than to live for nothing.
