Comments on: Skelton making point on Afghanistan with turn of phrase Tracking U.S. politics Wed, 16 Nov 2016 03:39:51 +0000 hourly 1 By: Daniel Hunter Wed, 23 Sep 2009 20:01:35 +0000 Mr. Lee could not be more correct. There is something about the liberal psyche which prevents their comprehending the true depth and extent of danger staring them in the face. The same can be said of those two ‘Current TV’ reporters who risked not just their lives but handed North Korea a propaganda victory by patently ignoring threats of arrest by North Korean border guards, to say nothing of the horrific fate their assistant suffered (strange – and pathetic – no one sought to secure his release, perhaps because he had already been tortured to death). It’s the same each time; those people who try and live among wild bears (and are eaten alive for it) are no different than liberals who face strategic threats on the world stage – they are simply blind to them. They can’t see the danger to save their very lives. The LAST person on earth who should fail to see how incredibly dangerous it is not to achieve absolute victory over the Taliban (and everyone else like them) is the leader of the free world. These extremists are the mortal enemy of free people the world over – period. There is no gray area in which to waffle or “dialogue.” But because he is an extreme liberal, he fails utterly to listen to his own commanders on the ground. Maybe he wants to micromanage the war like LBJ did in Vietnam and ensure a costly defeat instead of a decisive victory.

Pay attention if you don’t believe me; everyone who ends up on the news for having done something extraordinarily stupid to get themselves hurt (or killed) are always politically very liberal. Even researchers who study this exact issue are discovering how true it is; if you are politically liberal, you won’t see danger in situations which are clearly VERY dangerous.

And the women come out to cut up what remains,
Jest roll to your rifle and blow out your brains
