Good News Is Bad News For Andrew Sullivan And The Bush-Deranged Left

Okay, the good news that you probably know.

Iraqi official claims Al Qaeda is coming to an end in Iraq, and that the government forces now have the upper hand.

Another official says the security situation will improve enough that the US may draw down a significant number of its troops from Iraq by the end of this year, with the last US soldier leaving in 2008.

452 raids since Zarkky bit it, 104 insurgents killed, 750 arrested.

But in an email published prominently by Andrew Sullivan, that's just terrible news:

I cannot support the war in Iraq. Not because I think Saddam was a good leader. Not because I think Iraqis don’t deserve a chance. Not because I think this war we-shouldn’t-have-started has not morphed into the war we-can’t-afford-to-lose.

I cannot support the war in Iraq because after all the lies, the mistakes, the hubris, the Constitution shredding, the cover-ups, the undercover outings and, most importantly, the torture, if we win this war during the Bush presidency, he and his like will take it as a vindication of their actions and they will be emboldened to further damage my country.

This is not Bush bashing. This isn't hyperbole. I truly believe that President Bush is a danger to my country. And winning the Iraq war while he is in office would be the true end of the United States as we know it.

Let’s get Bush out of office.

Every once in a while a liberal lets the mask slips and admits he supports the troops -- the Al Qaeda troops. Because they realize, correctly, that a Bush win in Iraq will be politically disasterous for them. Thus, they and the terrorists are effectively on the same side. As one prospers, so does the other.

And it is crucial to them that we lose this war. If our military isn't losing the war quickly enough for them, well, then, by God, we'll just have to surrender.

We cannot afford to win this war. That is what they believe.

For his part, Sullivan "tepidly" (as Allah says) claims he's in favor of progress in Iraq, no matter who the president is, and then agrees in principle with the emailer, saying it will take America generations to recover from Bush.

Gee-- remember the days when Sullivan wrote of a "fifth column" within America which actively rooted for Al Qaeda? Well, we'll have none of that harsh talk anymore. Now the people he branded as fifth columnists aren't his opponents; they're his audience.

Thanks to Allah at Hot Air for that tip.
