Michelle Malkin Must Read

Once again, Ms. Malking hits the nail on the head with her most recent piece, in which she deals with the knuckleheads who will be protesting this weekend, or next week... does it matter, do they ever stop protesting? Reading all the emails I get about the "great protests planned" for the two year anniversary of "bombing and invasion of Iraq" I am struck (as was Michelle) by the absurdity of it all. As Iraq's government meets for the first time last night, the streets of Lebanon are rising up for democracy, the leftists will be protesting a policy that has freed and enlightened millions around the world, and the democracy dominoes continue to tumble.

With freedom on the move across the Middle East and beyond, aggrieved
anti-war protesters here in the United States have nothing better to do this
weekend than what they have always done: stand in the way.
The most unhinged of left-wing activists, from breast-exposing pacifists to the
conspiracy-mongers of, will descend on New York, Washington and other major media markets to "mark the two-year anniversary of the U.S. bombing and invasion of Iraq." They will do so by clogging the streets, tying up police
resources and leaving behind a trail of anti-Bush propaganda litter...Along the
way, the marchers will stop to harass workers at a local military recruiting
station. Yes, these are the supposed peaceniks who derive pleasure from ripping
yellow ribbon magnets off of minivans and throwing rocks through ROTC campus
offices. These are the acolytes of Michael Moore, who compares Iraqi
head-choppers to American Revolutionary war heroes.
"Oppose the war, support the troops"? Bull.
The Bush-bashers, as always, have impeccable timing. Nothing highlights the
bankrupt obstructionism of the anti-war movement more than the inspiring photos
of the renaissance of freedom taking place in Lebanon. Contrast the faces of
hope and defiance against terrorism pictured at the massive rallies in Beirut's
Martyrs Square this week with the faces of Bush hatred and capitulation to
terrorism that you'll see this weekend. Any question about who's

These are incredible and historic times, and history will show that the left has been on the wrong side from the beginning.
