Brent Bozell: The post-war show

While the war was on and progressing fabulously, the leftist press critics relentlessly complained. The press was too soft on the generals! Too shy about bloody images of death! Too willing to accept Team Bush propaganda! Too eager to humanize American soldiers! Too unwilling to give the itsy-bitsy "peace" movement fully 50 percent of the airtime! (Can you imagine? "We break into this analysis of the tactics and strategies being used in the battle of Basra for this hour's segment of War! Good God, Y'all! What Is It Good For? Absolutely Nothing.") These kooky critiques got the lion's share of attention because they reflected the worldview of those who control the news.

United we stand -- The Washington Times

Yes, there will be fighting to come, pockets of resistance. Perhaps even serious battles. But, the end has now been decided because we, America, have risen from our moral slumber. Weapons of mass destruction were never the issue. Saddam Hussein was a weapon of mass destruction. Every day his regime existed, an unknowable number of human beings suffered torture and death, while the remainder of those in Iraq lived in incomprehensible fear: Americans traditionally reject this sort of thing.

Bloopers and blunders on the war in Iraq -- The Washington Times

"So, they haven't been able to confirm reports [Saddam] was taken to Tikrit, and then Mosul, and then hopefully Syria."

The dawning of a new era -- The Washington Times


The anti-war movement paints patriotic sentiment as jingoism and triumphalism, but these attitudes are rooted in a sensibility that has stagnated and grown sour since the Vietnam War. That's too bad. A new generation of fighting men and women do not see it that way. The anti-war demonstrators are caught in a time warp, stewing in an ignorance indifferent to reality.
