Andrew Bolt:

PHILLIP Adams, lion of the Left, writes in The Australian: “There has to be a day of reckoning on this wretched war.”

Well, if he really insists.

In fact, let’s start that reckoning right now.

UPDATE. Hanyu in comments:

If Adams were a lion, the pack would have eaten him long ago. Christ, they’d still have some in the freezer.

By the way, comments (the blog’s best feature; hey, it’s the only reason I read this thing) just passed the 200,000 page-view mark (since the Dec. 13 upgrade). You guys are more popular than many sites.

    1. Bolt’s next item had the money quote:

      Just ask yourself: is there a risk of Media Watch also protesting if my boss ever decides I, too, have written something unfit to print?

      Hahahaha. No need to even answer.

    1. Newspapers and columnists are just now asking the question “was Bush right about the war?”.

      Supporters of Bush’s War Against Terrorism has known for some time that his ideas including the invasion of Iraq were established with the goal of changing a corrupt land and a dysfunctional system that not only allowed but enabled terrorists to plan and direct their diabolical efforts against the US and other Western countries.

      For a long time, too long, the US allowed this to happen and yet did what it could to stop or stymie it, tolerating it as well as it could.  But what changed everything was 9/11 where it became evident to all, especially President Bush, that the possibility of terrorists being willing to commit an act of mass destruction and murder had finally changed into probability.

      At that point, the President and his supporters projected out all the possibilities and the likely consequences of whichever route they took.  For all various options, they came up with a set of probable results far too terrible to allow to occur, most notably the destruction of cities in the US, Canada, Australia, and European nations and the deaths of millions of innocent people.  Just for the beginning.  Shortly following would be acts of retaliation demanded by the populace possibly including the destruction of many Middle Eastern and Muslim cities, the annihilation of Mecca, and the severe harm to the world economy.

      This can not be overstated.

      To avoid this terrible calamity, one with virtually no precedent in history, he has embarked on a course of attempting to change the world and make it better.  This includes transforming the governments and the system of governing for the Middle East and other Muslim nations but it also extends to reforming the UN and other organizations which were established with the expressed intent of helping to avoid or remedy such problems as are occurring now.

      For such a courageous act President Bush needs the support of all Americans and the citizens of the world.  And yet what has he received from the likes of Phillip Adams and Susan Sarandon?  Dishonest statements and active opposition to those acts needed to avoid the impending catastrophe.

      If we are successful and can avoid this oncoming perfect storm, I know that President Bush will be satisfied simply from knowing that something better has occurred.  He neither needs or seeks out credit, prizes, or awards.  His goal is peace and well being for the world at large.  Indeed for someone like him, he would reach out his hand in friendship to those who opposed what he needed to do.

      But for me I cannot be so magnanimous. I say after this War Against Terrorism is won and we rid the world of this terrible scourge, we cannot draw a close to this terrible chapter until we bring the opponents to the war before a Truth and Conciliation Commission in front of live camera and have them admit to their stupidity and apologize to the world population and especially to the future generations.

      Sorry for the essay.  I meant only to write a few sentences.  It’s just that this is something I’ve needed to say for a very long time.

    1. Lion of the lard more like! Ah ha ha! Yeah Hanyu’s comment was better.

    1. Hot double damn!

      FINALLY someone gives the lefties the public royal bitch-slapping they so rightly deserve.

      Let’s face it – the lefties are bigots of the first order, and their “Arabs can’t deal with democracy” crap is exhibit #1.  Glad someone (besides President Bush) is pointing it out.

    1. One has to admit that the Left is at least consistent on that point. Considering their shrill whining after Bush was reelected, I’m pretty sure they believe that the unwashed masses in Western countries can’t deal with democracy either.

    1. Good stuff, wronwright.  You’re spot on, too.  Bush has been almost (dare I say it?) Trumanesque – “We’re gonna do this, and and it will work out fine in the end, just you see.” Contrast with John “Mr. Tolerable Levels” Kerry and it’s really no contest.

      Pace Hanyu – Philip Adams may in fact become the first lion done in by the Christians.

    1. Hey Tim, I just found a picture of some noble French soldiers out for a walk with their good buddy Phil Adams.

  1. @ #6

    Considering how the Left generally treats opinions different to their own as well as the constant denial about why what is happening in the world is happening, I wonder if they have the same definition of Democracy as the rest of us.
