and Non-Leftists Teeter on "McGovernizing" Themselves in Reverse by Continuing to
"Preach to the Choir" as America Nose-Dives into Defeatism on Iraq.
is an open letter to "us"-- i.e., we who favor victory in Iraq, understand it as an
inextricable component of the long, twilight struggle between the forces of freedom and
totalitarianism, and understand that failure or defeat in Iraq would be catastrophic for our
country, ourselves and our posterity:
Stop preaching to the
choir. They already understand. Tell the choir they must immediately support and provide
funding for a massive, first-class, truth-telling campaign directed at the mind of
"Middle" America to counter the infection of defeatism that's spreading rapidly.
Remember, with one movie alone (JFK), Oliver Stone created a mass misperception of history in the
minds of "middle" America, a majority of whom now believe the CIA killed JFK. Stone,
MoveOn, and George Soros, et al ad nauseum are on the verge permanently infecting middle
America's mind with comparable misperceptions about the stakes in Iraq.
The defeatists are on the
verge of having permanently planted into the minds of "middle" Americans the specious
claims: (a) that WMD reports were "lies" presented as grounds for Operation
Iraqi Freedom, (b) that carnage in Iraq would decrease rather than increase dramatically "if
only" America would withdraw, (c) that if we hadn't toppled Saddam, we wouldn't by now be
facing an all-out effort on his part to reconstitute his WMD programs as well as to try to beat the
Iranians in the race for a nuclear weapon, (d) that our "withdrawal" from Iraq would
enable us to more effectively fight Islamic totalitarianism (rather than yielding to them a
sanctuary in Iraq far more effective and dangerous to us and the West than al Qaeda's remote
sanctuary in Afghanistan could ever have been), and, as an "extra attraction," (e) that
Bush and his minions may have somehow contributed to, or "staged," 9-11.
Regarding item "(c)" above, see http://PoliSat.Com/RewindRewriteReplay.htm;

If we continue business as
usual by continuing to merely preach to the choir, then defeatism is virtually assured as the
outcome. We've catered to informed passengers in America's plane so long that we've failed to
notice that our adversaries are in the cockpit and are determined to complete a nose dive in their
mistaken belief (fueled in part by their blind hatred for Bush) that they're making an
"emergency" landing. We don't have much time to alter this potentially catastrophic
It's time for we who
understand the stakes to collectively create and support an aggressive truth-telling campaign.
If we fail, our posterity won't forgive us.
Some of us who
understand the stakes may be inclined to say, "I agree, but I just can't do more than I'm doing
right now." I believe that's probably what our troops in Iraq are saying every day as
they perform their missions while watching us let ourselves (and them) be defeated by a slick,
well-funded media campaign by defeatists. We owe it to them to find a way to "do
more." Now, let's get rolling!
Otherwise, we will have
"McGovernized" ourselves in reverse -- i.e., marginalized our views
and influence into a form of political irrelevance until it's too late. We don't want to be
content to be able to say "we told you so" after likely greater disasters unfold on
