the anti-american left strikes again
An organization calling itself the “International Occupation Watch Center” has set up shop in Baghdad with the express purpose of inciting U.S. troops to seek discharges and be sent home as conscientious objectors. It is inciting defection of troops at war by (technically) other means.
The organization is founded by none other than Medea Benjamin, Code Pink founder, supporter of Catro, and organizer of human shields. Her partner in crime is Leslie Cagan:
Cagan maintained her membership in the Communist Party even after the fall of the Berlin Wall.
So these anti-American activists are taking their show on the road, where they will physically approach soldiers and try to talk them into deserting, basically undermining the operations in Iraq.
In order to pursue their goal of beating down everything George Bush does, Medea and company have no problem engaging in tactics that will put the freedom-seeking Iraqi people at risk as they fight the opposing forces that still do exist.
The left has become the enemy of the Iraqi people, not just of America and the Bush administration.
Is that not an act of treason to go into a combat-heavy country and entice soldiers into leaving their posts? And who will take care of these soldiers when they get a discharge and suddenly find themselves without a career? Conscietous Objecters, my ass. Occupation Watch workers will find the most vulnerable, homesick soldiers and ply them with leftist propaganda and visions of being home in their own beds. The soldiers who do fall into Medea's trap will be left to fend for themselves once they agree to leave and become another notch in the left's belt.
They don't care. They just don't care about anything except tearing Bush to shreds and undermining anything America does. They are so entrenched in their deep hatred for America that they don't care about the bodies and souls they leave lying in their wake, just as long as their point is made.
The people of Iraq, most of them anyhow, want freedom. They want this to work. Trying to take that away from them in the name of your angry movement is the heigh of selfishness. And, I believe, a crime against your country.
