“Oama ‘tossed away’ George W. Bush’s Iraq War victory.” Charles Krauthammer tells the Daily Caller:

The Iraq War “was won and we were in a position, if we had just negotiated a status of forces agreement, to have an ally in the region, to have a base, to train their air force — that would have changed the course of the future,” he told The Daily Caller. “Instead, a decision was made by the new administration to evacuate, leaving a vacuum where Iran has come in, where al-Qaida thrives and al-Qaida actually has extended itself into Syria. This was all unnecessary — and all the result of the liquidation of a war that was won.”

Glenn Reynolds adds, “Ideology required that the Iraq War be a failure, even if it needed a nunc pro tunc effort to make it so.”

Indeed.™ As with much about Mr. Obama’s socialist worldview, his administration is yet another bad rerun from the 1970s:

And note that both Iraq and Vietnam were initially liberal-endorsed projects that had to later be discarded by their more punitive, more leftwing successors, lest a Republican get credit for victory.

Liberalism has been losing wars for freedom and winning wars for tyranny for 60 years. This is understandable. Liberals believe that they have discovered the one true ideology (consequence free sex and government coerced equality). Furthermore, their ideology grants them permission to use force and fraud in establishing their beliefs as the new state sponsored religion.

They rightfully realize that those who still hang to the old beliefs (life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness) are their biggest enemies. This is why it is imperative that conservatism be destroyed, and if that means losing a few wars and leaving a few million people under tyranny, so be it.
