Must Read Articles
I have two must reads for you today.

The first is this article from the Wall Street Journal's Editorial page. It was brought to my attention by USAdave, The American Geek, who is always bringing excellent things to my attention.

The article is written by an ex-KGB Intel guy by the name of Lt. Gen. Pacepa who defected to the US 29 years ago. The article goes a long way in pointing out how the MSM and the left's anti-Bush clamor and spasms are working in al Qaeda's favor. No kidding - he says it is a play right out of the KGB's playbook. MUST READ! JUST DO IT. Click the link! Here's a taste:

Sowing the seeds of anti-Americanism by discrediting the American president was one of the main tasks of the Soviet-bloc intelligence community during the years I worked at its top levels. This same strategy is at work today, but it is
regarded as bad manners to point out the Soviet parallels. For communists, only the leader counted, no matter the country, friend or foe. At home, they deified their own ruler--as to a certain extent still holds true in Russia. Abroad, they asserted that a fish starts smelling from the head, and they did everything in their power to make the head of the Free World stink.

The communist effort to generate hatred for the American president began soon after President Truman set up NATO and propelled the three Western occupation forces to unite their zones to form a new West German nation. We were tasked to take advantage of the reawakened patriotic feelings stirring in the European countries that had been subjugated by the Nazis, in order to shift their hatred for Hitler over into hatred for Truman--the leader of the new "occupation power." Western Europe was still grateful to the U.S. for having restored its freedom, but it had strong leftist movements that we secretly financed. They were like putty in our hands.

Sound familiar?

Next up, we have this piece by Stu Bykofsky (h/t: Drudge). Bykofsky laments that the partisan bickering about Iraq has squandered the post-9/11 unity at a time when we need it most. He recognizes who the real enemy is..."It is not Bush and it is not Hillary and it is not Daily Kos or Bill O'Reilly or Giuliani or Barack. It is global terrorists who use Islam to justify their hideous sins, including blowing up women and children."

Bykofsky is upset with the distractions and the partisanship that work against the bigger picture.

Because we have mislaid 9/11, we have endless sideshow squabbles about whether the surge is working, if we are "safer" now, whether the FBI should listen in on foreign phone calls, whether cops should detain odd-acting "flying imams," whether those plotting alleged attacks on Fort Dix or Kennedy airport are serious threats or amateur bumblers. We bicker over the trees while the forest is ablaze.

America's fabric is pulling apart like a cheap sweater.

What would sew us back together?

Another 9/11 attack.

I fear that he is right. It is long past time for the partisan bickering and the gotcha game and the Bush Derangement Syndrome and Plamegate to all be in the rearview window. There are people out there who want to kill us. You. Me. Our children. And, if they aren't able to actually kill us, they'll only be satisfied with abject and complete dhimmitude. You and I, long the beneficiaries of our forefathers struggles and sacrifices in pursuit of freedom and a government beholden to us, will be surely classed as second-class citizens, forced to pay dhimmi taxes, and make special accomodations to Allah in the global caliphate if that abhorrence comes to pass.

And lastly, this is a delightful little piece on Global Warming. It turns out that all the doom and gloom - at least in part - was based on faulty data! Data at fault, the suggestion is, due to a lingering Y2K bug! (h/t: Michelle Malkin)
