What About the Barbaric Killers?

By Michael Medved

The Democrats deliberately distort their intentions in the current debate on the Iraq War. They say their withdrawal timetable will "end the war"--but it's ludicrous to suggest that removal of U.S. troops will suddenly stop the fighting. Concerning so-called insurgents, everyone agrees they are ruthless, barbaric killers.

So what will they do when Americans leave? Will bloodthirsty bad-guys suddenly turn into pacifists--or decide to retire from their murderous ways? Will they abandon sectarian hatreds and suddenly embrace their Iraqi enemies? General Petraeus, U.S. Commander in Iraq, says American withdrawal would lead to an "increase in sectarian violence ... It can get much, much worse."

Islamo-Nazis in Iraq would feel powerfully encouraged, not mollified, by removal of the one force strong enough to contain them: the U.S. military. Democratic surrender timetables won't "end the war"--they'll only make it longer and more bloody, necessitating the ultimate return of American forces at an even higher cost.
