It's funny to see so-called liberals, with their feigned moral superiority, longing for the good old days of Saddam Hussein. These croissant-nibbling cosmopolitans contrive an exquisite sensitivity to the supposed plight of every sodomite, atheist, America-hating traitor, endangered insect, and God knows what else, all the while sneering superciliously at all those less evolved Americans who, in their eyes, are gas-guzzling, gun-toting breeders who aren't hip enough to loathe this country.
And yet these effete degenerates are perfectly willing to have sat and done nothing as Hussein continued to have people pushed off roofs, burned alive, shoved into wood chippers alive, beheaded for sport, and their children thrown into filthy dungeons built just for them. The sensitivity of the Birkenstock brigades does not extend to those people. Nearly half a million souls that Hussein's regime murdered have been found in mass graves all over Iraq, and given a few more years, the butchery might have rivaled the killing fields of Cambodia. But American faux liberals would have been quite content to sit and do nothing as the horrors continued.
Another generation very bravely saved this country from the Nazis and the Japanese by killing hundreds of thousands of the bastards. This one has been taught that America's so awful, from slavery to the Trail of Tears to Hiroshima, that it's hardly worth saving. And besides, arms are for hugging, and using violence to keep the U.S. secure is dangerous. It's nothing but Shrub-like cowboying around the world murdering beautiful brown people, and it would neither meet government safety standards nor respect this planet's cultural diversity.
Muslim jihadists could be gleefully making videos of raping and disemboweling the wives of these bloodless limp-wrists as they hacked off the heads of their shrieking children, and they, who would never dream of having a gun, would still be desperately trying to reason with the filthy savages. "Surely we can communicate on a higher plane than this--why, I personally have always admired the Prophet Mohammed! And I validate the pain your inner child has suffered and understand why you're angry that this awful country provoked you and made you feel yucky. But can't we all just--get along?"
