    Liberal Press Clippings

    Here are some press clippings from liberals in academia and the media about the Iraq War.

    The liberals on this board will hit me with personal attacks and character assassination for posting this thread, but the problem for them is that the liberal authors of these quotes can't run from them. HERE WE GO.

    "It is hard not to draw comparisons with events surrounding North Vietnam's Tet offensive in 1968. The U.S. inflicted heavy casualties on its enemies and was seen as the victor on the battlefield, but such was the psychological impact of the attack that America lost the struggle for domestic and international public opinion and ultimately withdrew."--Victor Mallet, Financial Times, March 28, 2003

    “To Iraq and Ruin”
    August 25, 2002, the San Francisco Chronicle

    “This invasion of Iraq, if it goes off, will join the Bay of Pigs, Vietnam, Desert One, Beirut and Somalia in the history of military catastrophe.”

    Nelson Mandela said: "If there is a country that has committed unspeakable atrocities in the world, it is the United States of America. They don't care for human beings. ... One power with a president who has no foresight and cannot think properly, is now wanting to plunge the world into a holocaust."

    Columbia Professor of Anthropology Nicholas DeGenova said, "The only true heroes are those who find ways that help defeat the U.S. military." He added that he'd like to see "a million Mogadishus."

    Here’s a quote from a liberal journalist from the online magazine, Salon.com, writing just after the fall of Baghdad. Gary Kayima wrote this. “I have a confession. I have at times, as the war has unfolded, secretly wished for things to go wrong. Wished for the Iraqis to be more nationalistic, to resist longer. Wished for the Arab world to rise up in rage. Wished for all the things we feared would happen. I’m not alone. A number of serious, intelligent, morally sensitive people who oppose the war have told me they had identical feelings.”

    Read these quotes and judge for yourselves.
