The refusal of the anti-war Left to make a moral judgment

about the "insurgents" ... their willingness to equivocate or say "but what about ....?" and make erroneous comparisons as demonstrated by the weird, creepy and many times psychotic DC march makes one wonder how much moral encouragement it gives to Associated Press to keep calling these evil people, merely "gunmen"

Gunmen Kill Five Shiite Teachers in Iraq

BAGHDAD, Iraq - Insurgents dragged five Shiite Muslim schoolteachers and their driver into a classroom, lined them against a wall and gunned them down Monday ...

The shooting was a rare attack on a school amid Iraq's relentless violence, and it was particularly stunning since the gunmen targeted teachers in a school where the children were mainly Sunnis. Elsewhere Monday, a suicide attack and roadside bombings killed 10 Iraqis and three Americans, bringing to at least 52 the number of people killed in the past two days.

The Iraqi and U.S. governments have warned that Sunni Arab insurgents are likely to increase their attacks ahead of the Oct. 15 national referendum ...

Earlier this month, al-Qaida's leader in Iraq, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, declared "all-out war" on Shiites and vowed to kill anyone participating in the referendum.

al-Zarqawi is the person George Galloway supports, the leader of the terrorists that the DC marchers support. Kind of belies their wimperings that they are all about democracy and voting rights, eh?

And they carry banners calling for Cheney's castration.

Bizzaro world indeed.

Actually we lefties do make moral judgments.

Most of us believe it's immoral to impose democracy on Middle Eastern countries at the point of an M1A1 tank.

Most of us believe the war/occupation of Iraq is a waste of good men.

1900 dead in Mr Bush's miserable little crusade, and all we have to show for it is the possibility of another Islamic state in the Middle East.

Morality aside, the quicker the US gets out of Iraq, the better it will be for all concerned.

Let the Iraqis fight there own damned civil/religious wars.
