Newsflash: Kos Says Bush Was Wrong

Well I was looking for reactions to the London bombing today around the blogs, and I thought to myself 'I wonder how long before someone says fighting the terrorists in Iraq rather than at home is a false rationale.'

How long did it take? About a nanosecond.

The ever-snotty Kos: "Well, that didn't work out quite as planned, did it?"

Kos never was a class act, and using this tragedy in London as a craven triumphalist blast at Bush is just, well, about the highest level of maturity we ever see from Kos.

If Kos were an honest person (big 'if' here) he would admit that there are no guarantees in life. Bush did not guarantee that fighting in Iraq would keep us safe at home. But the 'flypaper' rationale is in fact valid: obviously the jihadis are concentrating their firepower in Iraq and sending their recruits to Iraq, and if this were not so we may very well have had many more attacks in Paris, Brussels, Rome, New York, Jakarta, etc.

But as usual, the liberals want to make the perfect the enemy of the good. Anything less than immediate apprehension of Osama bin Laden, Zarqawi, Zawahiri, and the immediate destruction of Al-Qaeda and a cessation of terrorist attacks by all groups worldwide means that Bush's War on Terror is a complete and abject failure.

I, for one, am still waiting for the comprehensive report from those brilliant Liberals on how to solve the War on Terror. But then again, Liberals often mistake invective for policy, so perhaps they have shown us the answer, and we just haven't seen it. Maybe a campaign of savage wit, and withering sarcasm will bring Osama to heel?

Update: Dean Esmay recommends that everyone, liberals and conservatives alike, should just stop posting links to Kos. Heh, well, I don't know if this is the last time I will ever mention Kos, but it is food for thought.
