Hey, NY Times: Whose Side are You On?

The Democrats and their supporters really don’t know which way to run anymore.  What they’ve been trying lately, has been working, so they’re going to try and break out the classics.  Witness Frank Rich over at the Democrat party house organ, otherwise known as the world as the New York Times: [1]

Our humanity has been compromised by those who use Gestapo tactics in our war. The longer we stand idly by while they do so, the more we resemble those “good Germans” who professed ignorance of their own Gestapo.

Yeah… well… an inherent part of this conversation, which never seems to get brought into the conversation by these morons, is what exactly constitutes to her chair.  Curt over at Flopping Aces, who also notes the story, says in part: [2]

These are the same kind of liberals who believe putting panties on one head is “torture”, and Mr. Rich also obviously believes sleep deprivation is “torture” because he can cite cases where the Germans used that technique also.  Well whoopdidoo…..Do these liberals really believe that a hard core al-Qaeda agent is just going to sit down and tell us everything because we were super nice to them?  Gave them some cookies and warm milk?  It appears they do.

Well, yes, even that of a toned care whether are not be of cottage and tells us what we need to know to save American lives.  I would consider that the larger of the two possibilities.  All that said, Kurt then goes on to show us some of the torture methods that al-Qaida is known to use on our people.  Yes, Virginia, there are pictures.

A quip I made a short time ago is worth repeating here:

Don’t bother trying to tell me about how if we use torture, they will. I defy the reader to tell me in what war in this nation’s entire history the Geneva conventions were actually followed by the people we were fighting against. You cannot. They never were.

So what this really boils down to, is a question that Paul Simon once asked; “Whose side are you on?”

In truth, I think the question about the New York Times and its position on whether or not it wants America and the remainder of the free world to win against al-Qaida, has long since been answered in the negative.  This article from Mr. Rich, thereby, is simply one more in a long line of bits of evidence proving this.

And of course on the left side of the Blogs, we see some moron calling himself Chuck Adkins… assuming that’s the idiot’s real name… comes up with the classic leftie argument: [3]

We have a thing in this damn country called a Constitution and it supposed to be followed.

So we’re bound by the U.S. constitution in Iraq?  Further, these are not criminal proceedings, these are acts of war we’re talking about against us.  Too bad you haven’t figured the difference yet, Chuckles. Seems a question of whether not you want America to win here, has also been answered.

Gee… You look like a nice horsey, Chuckles.  Can I see the front half now?
