Face it – the right hate seeing combat operations come to an end. Their silence on the milestone being reached last night in the 7 year war proves the claims the left has made for years; the right loves them some war.
For example, how do you think the champion news site of the right, Drudge, promotes the story?
Yup – nothing but a little blurb 1/2 way down the page on the third column. Way to celebrate our heroes their Matt!
But someone on the right did notice:
John McCain wants to thank George Bush, the guy who got us into this war with no plan for exit or victory. The same George Bush who sat by like a deer in the headlights as the insurgency many warned about came to fruition and killed thousands of our young troops.
Of course if John McCain would have won in 2008 we wouldn’t be at this milestone today. He was all set to keep combat troops in Iraq another 10 years and not think twice about it.
For us on the left, today is a day to celebrate the start of the end of this war. For the right, it’s a sad day in which their favorite national pastime is coming to an end.
