Here Come the Missiles

I guess the ultra left wing thinkers around the world are celebrating the launch of seven missiles by one of their idols Kim Jung Il II.  That great beneficiary of the North Korean people, a communist, and a terrorist is one of the darlings of the left.  Why is this?  Why do the Michael Moore, Susan Sarandon, Nancy Pelosi, types so admire this kind of government?  Let Castro put journalists in prison for 75 years and there is not a peep from the left.  Let George Bush follow-up on the Clinton doctrine of regime change in Iraq and they go crazy.

The Democrats heap praise on Hugo Chavez as he ruins Venezuela and castigate George Bush as he protects them and every other citizen of the USA.  The Europeans dilly-dally with Iran while the Iranians mock them.  China and India are the world’s worst polluters yet the left constantly and persistently blame the USA for all the world’s problems.  What would happen if Greenpeace re-located its headquarters to Shanghai or Mumbai?

Would criticism of the government’s policy of the Peoples Republic of China be accepted with aplomb?  It is more than likely that such critics would be imprisoned or banished.  India, being a democracy, would be different but not much.  Unless the critics were Hindu it is within reason that might be assassinated.  Much the same could be expected in Iran if the critics are not Muslim; or even if they are.

Members of the ultra left wing arrogantly assert that they are working to save the world and thus have no reason to be concerned about the United States; the place where they live, prosper, and are protected from harm.  The freedoms available in the USA make it a very desirable place to live.  These people are very insecure because their fellow citizens discount them for the most part.  They must take their concerns to Europe where their ideas have currency only because the Europeans have forgotten who won their freedom for them.  Gratitude is nearly always replaced by anger.

Now the world’s nations must unite because unlike the Iranians the North Koreans are led by an insane dictator who really might launch a nuclear attack.  Radiation and explosions don’t know which part of the political spectrum is being destroyed.
