Glen on defeatism
By Tom Smith

I suppose it would be in the American interest if some communist hell hole were our ally against the Iraqi 'insurgency.' Then think of all the American lefties who would flock to the cause. "We must save the PRSWO [People's Republic of Somewhere or Other]! Their prisons may be full to bursting with political dissidents, but they gotta heckova health care plan!" Instead, we're stuck with defeatism.

I agree that the Bush administration is doing a terrible job selling the program. If we're going to be neo-imperialists (I mean that in a nice way), we could do with a neo-imperialist press, or at least one that didn't see its job as flacking for Joe Biden, or whoever.
