Insurgents as Kamikazes

Some blowhard Friday evening was arguing on PBS' Washington Week that the increase in attacks in Iraq recently showed that the "insurgents" (otherwise known as terrorists) were getting stronger. During WW II, the Japanese stepped up the number of Kamikaze suicide strikes as we got closer to Japan. They weren't gettting stronger.

The telling point here is not the liberal bias, or even the liberal partisanship of PBS. It is the distressing lack of logic.

In his book, Ripples of Battle, Victor David Hanson compared the terrorists in Iraq with the kamakaze pilots, and explained why the terrorists will fail, just as the kamikazes did. Yes, they can cause extensive pain, but they cannot win if the Iraqis and we have the will to stay the course.

How are people who defend their country from invaders terrorists?

Is your logic that simple?

Everyone agrees now, Iraq had nothing to do with 9-11.

You confirm the study that Bill Moyer talked about, when people are told something that turns out to be untrue, for some weird reason they continue to belive it.

Remember, Saddam had nothing to do with 9-11.

Almost two years now and, hey, the insurgency gets weaker every day. I guess that last round of suicide bombs in Baghdad proves that we've won the war!

Amazing, just amazing that this is the first Two Minute Offense post. Talk about a distressing lack of logic.

I guess TMO might just be favorite blog in the whole blogisphere. I trust the Smithsonian is paying attention. Even the Orthodox church makes a change once every 1000 or so years.
