Axis of Treason 

At Axis of Logic, Mike Whitney is brutally honest, but it doesn't make him any less of a fool:
"I can say without hesitation that I support the insurgency, and would do so even if my only 21 year old son was serving in Iraq. There’s simply no other morally acceptable option."
After all the "we oppose the war but support our troops" political contortionism on the left, it's refreshing to see somebody out there (and I mean, really out there) saying "screw the troops, too... I wish I had a son, so that he could be killed by the insurgents to make my political stance seem really principled."

But why is Mike Whitney so gung-ho for gung-ho Iraqis (and presumably foreign jihadis, too)? Well, the "brave Iraqi Minutemen" meme rears its ugly head again:
"As Americans, we support the idea that violence is an acceptable means of achieving (national) self-determination. This, in fact, is how our nation was formed, and it is vindicated in our founding document, The Declaration of Independence...

"The Declaration of Independence is revolutionary in its view that we have a 'duty' to overthrow regimes that threaten basic human liberties. We must apply this same standard to the Iraqi people."
Did you know that America and its Iraqi puppet regime "threaten basic human liberties" of Iraqis? Neither did I. Must be the same "basic human liberties" that thrived under Saddam. Oh, you know, the famous Baath Party Declaration of Everyone's Dependence on the Regime that guaranteed all Iraqis the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, but only if your name was Saddam or you were born in Tikrit. The other twenty-odd million enjoyed the constitutionally protected right to life sentence, deprivation of liberty, and pursuit by the secret police. Damn the Yankee imperialist invaders for taking these long cherished rights from the Iraqi people.

But the idiocy doesn't stop there - it culminates with this pearl from Whitney:
"We have to recognize that the disparate elements of Iraqi resistance, belittled in the media as the 'insurgency', are the legitimate expression of Iraqi self-determination."
Yep, a few thousand murderous thugs with AK-47s are a more legitimate expression of self-determination that the eight million who voted in the democratic election. Silly, George W.; instead of stealing the Florida vote in 2000, he should have simply set off a few roadside bombs and the Axis of Logic Left would have found him a legitimate president.
