Which Will Fall First: Baghdad or Washington, D.C.?

By John W. Lillpop

These are perilous times, to say the least. America’s war on terror in Iraq is not going well, and even President Bush has admitted that it could end up like Vietnam.

Our way of life and freedoms are under attack from sworn enemies like Osama bin Laden, Kim Jong Il, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, and Hugo Chavez.

Although the lunatic in charge of North Korea is reportedly “sorry” for his nuclear test theatrics, one suspects that the madman’s repentance is due solely to severe arm twisting by his Chinese sponsors. Only the day before yesterday, Il was warning the world that more nuclear tests were in the offing.

Iran’s Mahmoud Ahmadinejad continues to threaten Israel, his latest declaration being that Israel cannot survive. This particular nutcase remains adamant that Iran will pursue nuclear enrichment—for peaceful generation of electricity only, of course.

To make matters even less cheery, the Shiite militia run by anti-American cleric Muqtada al-Sadr seized total control of the southern Iraqi city of Amarah.

But the worse news about the war on terror comes from our own shores. Liberals like John Kerry, John Murtha, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Howard Dean and other liberals continue to provide comfort to the enemy by attacking our troops, the war effort itself, and of course President Bush.

With recent polls showing the Democrats in a position to do real damage during the November 7 elections, a reasonable question might be:

Which city will fall into enemy hands first—Baghdad or Washington, D.C.?

John Lillpop is a recovering liberal, "clean and sober" since 1992 when last he voted for a Democrat. Pray for John: He lives in the San Francisco Bay Area, where people like Nancy Pelosi are considered reasonable!
