Left-Wing Bloggers to Put up 150 Anti-Bush Signs
The anonymous Freeway Blogger celebrates the liberation of Iraq and Afghanistan, it's spill-over affects into Egypt, Lebanon, Syria, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and Palestine, and the complete paradigm shift uderway in the entire Middle East by mocking the 1,500 brave soldiers who died in that effort.Examples of his signs:
...more evidence the real objection to the war in Iraq is that the Left thinks all war is bad.
...the mission is not accomplished yet, but is any one except the un-reality based community still calling Iraq a quagmire?
That last one is a doozy, since we liberated Kurdistan years ago. Oh, wait, he means liberate Kurdistan from us. What a patriot. Meanwhile, the Lebanese post some of their own freeway protest signs:
And what are other Lefties saying? Oliver Willis: "1,500 American lives. For what?" Er, see elections in Iraq, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, Syria...... UPDATE: OW gets spanked!!! Mathew Gross: "Not worth it. Not worth one." This guy blames the US for the Hilla terrorist bombing. That wouldn't be like a Lefty--you know, blaming the US. Lefti: "I'm waiting for someone to count the Iraqis killed just since the election - surely it's approaching 500"--and I'm waiting for Lefties to stop supporting tyranny in the name of no-war. Atrios, to his credit, simply say's "Rest in Peace" (ht: Wonkette who manages to leave the word 'ass' out of a post for once) Rob also on the scene

Looks like the LLL media elite got together in the backroom and decided to allow a slight, grudging change of tone by admitting there are some positive aspects about the uses of the US Military, and perhaps, that a new wind is blowing in the Middle East. However, read the Guardian article, and be reassured that they haven't changed their true nature.
A Force for Good, by Robert Kaplan/NYT http://www.nytimes.com/auth/login?URI=http://www.nytimes.com/2005/03/03/opinion/03kaplan.html&OP=20bcd540/eqQ26We8Q5C)YwQ5CQ5CbTeTaaKeaUeaUeQ5CBQ3EQ3FQ3EQ5CQ3FeaU0rBCrQ3F7RbQ2B
"The global war on terrorism has made the military far more effective at performing humanitarian deeds."
You're going to love this one.
Only the Guardian would make an attempt to credit Osama bin Laden with starting a democratic revolution in the Middle East.
The Guardian announces Osama started the The Cedar Revolution: http://www.guardian.co.uk/comment/story/0,3604,1429001,00.html
"Has Osama bin Laden started a democratic revolution in the Middle East? One of very few universally valid laws of history is the law of unintended consequences. The effects of what men and women do are rarely those they intend, and sometimes they are the exact opposite. If that happens here, it would be hard to imagine a nicer illustration of the law."
They apparently really believe that the world is quite that stupid
