Hoist by Their Own Petard

If the Left is as convinced as they presume to be that only through cool headed talks and negotiations can serious conflicts be resolved, why do they continually attack the Right with inflamed rhetoric, carefully timed leaks of classified national security information, hate filled speech, and partisan obstruction of any and all Republican Executive and Legislative initiatives? Should there not be some Liberal out there somewhere cautioning his/her own that they need to sit down and sincerely negotiate with the Right?

Don’t they understand that the more they attack us the more determined we become? They are just creating more Republicans. There weren't any Republicans before. Now you find them virtually everywhere. You can even find the occasional Conservative, such as Mike Adams, in academia for seculars sake! Or is it their sense that, in this case, the enemy is so intransigent that talk is useless and preemptive strikes are the only remaining option open to them?

If the Left really believes that engaging in war with an enemy will only make the situation worse by increasing the number of enemy we must face, then they should withdraw from the public conflict with G.W. Bush and enter into negotiations with him. The Terrorists, then, would see their loss of the American Lefts support and its cooperation with the President as an obvious increase in the number of Americans lining up against them and, withdraw!

The elegance of this approach is that it accomplishes all that the Left could ever hope. To begin with, it would firmly establish the Lefts commitment to its own ideology; second, it would twice prove the veracity of that ideology as demonstrated in real world events; third, it would end the War in Iraq; and finally, in doing all of that it would have proven the means by which to end all wars forever!

All it takes is for the Left to commit its own conduct to the dictates of its own ideology. Surely there should be no concern that the Terrorists would do other than what the American Left would have us do in such circumstances? After all, they are just like us; normal everyday hard working people looking after their own best interests as well as they can in a threatening world. We would see that if we would only sit down and talk with them.
