StrategyPage Predicted Zarqawi's Demise Yesterday | Main | CNN's Got The Video

The Left Parodizes Itself

I was all set to do a parody of reactions from leftblogs, but Dr. Sanity has rounded up their reactions, and they're beyond parody.


This guy seems to be relatively even-keeled:

This is a psychological lift, but reality remains terribly grim in Iraq. Al-Zarqawi's killing doesn't dent the insurgency reality.

What a relief it is that some Democrats still view the death of a murderous terrorist as a "psychological lift."

Doesn't dent the insurgency reality? Not sure what he means by this odd sentence, but I guess it's just a reality-based community way of saying "doesn't dent the fact we're still dealing with a broad insurgency." Well... surely it doesn't end the insurgency. It's been long known that Zarqawi was an increasingly marginalized figure, despised even by his would-be Sunni insurgent allies, and, in some ways, one of America's best public-relations agents operating in Iraq. If the terrorists win when an errant American bomb kills a family, surely we win a little bit when this psychopath saws off the heads of innocent school teachers or blows up a bus filled with schoolgirls.

But doesn't even dent the insurgency? Really? Not even a dent has been put into the terrorist chassis? There's no reduction in Al Qaeda's ability to funnel money and weapons into Iraq, or carry out mass terrorism, by eliminating Zarqawi (and his "spiritual leader")? None at all?

Oh, well. At least he acknowleges it's a psycholgical lift. And surely America, and her troops, needed one.

Note: The line attributed to Daily Kos, "Who cares?," doesn't appear on the site. Perhaps it was a comment which has been deleted as embarassing. The diarist Nickie who writes about this is, as can be expected, less than enthused by the killing, but does not shrug it off with a "Who cares?" She admits this is a "great catch," but of course says his death won't end the insurgency.
