Only Solutions Please - Take 2

(Note: First Solutions article here.)

Dr. Degenaro has taken the time to post a mess of articles on his site that are critical of the operation in Iraq. I could go through and list a bunch of articles that take an opposite tact that wouldn't be read but by those people who have already read them, but I won't.

As an overview the articles complain about the costs, the international illegality (whatever...), and civilian casualties (from the same kooks who brought us the 'Jenin genocide') to name a few.

Okay, I don't agree with the left's assessments; but still, what do they propose?

I don't mean to put words in the mouths of the lefties, but I know where this is going: Hard core lefties think we should pull out of Iraq tomorrow and put Saddam back in power. They don't have the guts to come out and say what they want, so they complain about the situation in the hopes that everyone will come around to their way of thinking.

Much of the same can be said of the ignorant anti-globalization protesters. They sit (or riot) around and complain about the woes of capitalism in the hopes that, magically, everyone will become deluded enough to think that communism works.

In both instances, nothing is brought to the table as a solution to the complaints being leveled. It makes for a an argument with about as much depth as a plate of jello. This type of discourse also levels lefties to being a jerk who sits around watching what you're doing while yelling "YOU'RE DOING IT ALL WRONG" incessantly .

Please, solutions: bitching and moaning are worthless. If you think Saddam should be put back in power, grow some balls and come out say that. Everyone will think you're a kook (with good reason), but at least you'll be standing up for what you believe.

(As an aside, the left likes to bitch about WMD as a cause for war, however there were many causes that I won't go into here. But I would like to point out that one of the big reasons the war went down is because the left sat around and bitched and proposed absolutely ZERO solutions.)
