2000 KIA - Is the left smiling?

Today, there was grim news that the number of killed in action in Iraq has surpassed 2,000. Although this is just another number, the left has been salivating since 1500 for another round number to rally around. So, what do the lefties have planned?

The folks at the American Friends Service Committee want to stop funding for the War in Iraq.

On the day after the 2,000th reported U.S. military casualty in Iraq, people will gather in communities across the U.S. to say that the country's pro-peace majority wants Congress to stop the deaths by stopping the dollars that are funding the war.


This is a horrible plan. Yeah, lets stop funding our fighting men and women in Iraq and expect to SAVE US lives. Why don't these folks look at the consequences of their actions? Of course, this new campaign kicked off with the 2,000 death in Iraq. It is obvious that they have been planning this new campaign for a while...but they waited to execute it. Why? They were planning on more soldiers to die and wanted to springboard off of #2000. I wonder if they had a countdown in their office?

You can't spell overblown without moveon.org. They were founded during the Clinton impeachment telling the Republicans to "move on". I wish they would take their own advice on this one. They ask "how many more?"

Today, we received grim news: 2000 American soldiers have now died in Iraq. Their caskets have been hidden from view, and the news of their deaths has receded to the back pages. But the men and women who died in recent days were no less brave or less honorable than those who died in the first days of the war. It's time for us to honor them to remind the public that they're dying every day in the quagmire of Iraq and ask, "How many more?"

They already have a commercial ready to roll to point out the 2000 figure. Like AFSC, moveon.org planned for the 2000th death and was ready to roll. additionton to the commercial, they are planning a National "Vigil for 2000 Killed in Iraq". Again, they were prepping for the 2000th death. That is sick.

Here is some friendly Freedom Fighter advice for the smiling left:

Stop trying to capitalize off of the sacrifice of the fighting men and women of the US Armed Forces. Instead of planning for more soldiers to die and planning events around these statistics, why don't you focus on the terrorists and the people that are causing Americans, Iraqis, and othcoalitionion members to die in Iraq.

Those soldiers are sacrificing their lives for your freedoms. The least you can do is not hope for the 2000th KIA. And yes, you were hoping for 2000 and you are preparing for 2100, 2200, 2300 and beyond.

So, enjoy your parties today, have fun calling Bush a murderer and catching up with your anti-war buddies about the latest moveon.org commercial. Someday, that smile, that smug little smile, will wipedped from your collective faces when you realize that you were happy when you heard the KIAs reached 2000. I will pray for you all until then.

Looks like Xoff has been badmouthing you in his blog. He's been calling you a ChickenHawk.

Isn't that SOP for a someone like Xoff? Start the name calling and then try to talk the high ground about how their so much more superior for wanting to save our soldiers' lives and screw over those little insignificant Iraqis who must like government control and not individual control of their lives. Was good ole slick Willie a chickenhawk when we went to Kosovo?

Hey great post on that Xoff site Bob. The problem with Xoff pulling the combat card is that it seems he has Vietnam confused with Iraq...they are NOT the same thing, and his point of view should be given NO more weight than anybody elses because of his tour of duty there. Plus, the only real MOS in the Marine Corps is 0311.
