If We Leave Iraq
What then will happen to those who support the new government and secular democracy? Christopher Hitchens asks via Slate
Many of those advocating withdrawal have been "war-weary" ever since the midafternoon of Sept. 11, 2001, when it was discovered that the source of jihadist violence was U.S. foreign policy—a mentality now reinforced by the recent National Intelligence Estimate circulated by our emasculated, demoralized, and incompetent intelligence services. To this way of thinking, victory is impossible by definition, because any response other than restraint is bound to inflame the militancy of the other side. Since the jihadists, by every available account, are also inflamed and encouraged by everything from passivity to Danish cartoons, this seems to shrink the arena of possible or even thinkable combat. (Nobody ever asks what would happen if the jihadists had to start worrying about the level of casualties they were enduring, or the credit they were losing by their tactics, or the number of enemies they were making among civilized people who were prepared to take up arms to stop them. Our own masochism makes this contingency an unlikely one in any case.)…. …..What is to become, in the event of a withdrawal, of the many Arab and Kurdish Iraqis who do want to live in a secular and democratic and federal country?Sorry Chris but that’s an easy one. Using Mullah Filthy’s term, they will get the old chop, chop, choppity chop. Also see Oliver Kamm.

The terrorists will swim across the ocean and kill us all, just like the Japs, the Crouts and the Vietnamese did.

STEP 2: : Now take the #1 name off the list that you see above, move the other names up (6 becomes 5, 5 becomes 4, etc...) and add YOUR Name as number 6 on the list. STEP 3: : Change anything you need to, but try to keep this article as close to original as possible. Now, post your amended article to at least 250 newsgroups You won't get very much unless you post like crazy. PLEASE REMEMBER that this program remains successful because of the honesty and integrity of the participants and by their carefully adhering to the directions. So, as each post is downloaded and the directions carefully followed, six members will be reimbursed for their participation as a List Developer with one dollar each. Your name will move up the list geometrically so that when your name reaches the #1 position you will be receiving hundreds of thousands of dollars in CASH!!! What an opportunity for only $6.00 ($1.00 for each of the first six people listed above) Send it now, add your own name to the list and you're in business! Out of 250 postings, say I receive only 5 replies (a very low example). So then I made $5.00 with my name at #6 on the letter. Now, each of the 5 persons who just sent me $1.00 make the MINIMUM 250 postings, each with my name at #5 and only 5 persons respond to each of the original 5, that is another $25.00 for me, now those 25 each make 250 MINIMUM posts with my name at #4 and only 5 replies each, I will bring in an additional $125! Now, those 125 persons turn around and post the MINIMUM 250 with my name at #3 and only receive 5 replies each, I will make an additional $626! OK, now here is the fun part, each of those 625 persons post a MINIMUM 250 letters with my name at #2 and they each only receive 5 replies, that just made me $3,1250!!!
