Instapundit’s Iraq War Wisdom

Warblogger Glenn Reynolds is holding a “symposium” on the Iraq War, a topic of which Reynolds can claim unmatched knowledge and stunning prescience. After all, look at all his past predictions and analyses of The Great War. Is this guy a genius or what? And could anyone doubt that his role as king of the blogs isn’t fully deserved? (And you simply must click on that link and see for yourself.)

Look, all you need to do is check what the nutty professor said in the past and what’s happening here and now in the real world to see that he’s just an irresponsible and reckless windbag. He’s still up at the top because he was first to market and has brand recognition. Other than that, he’s got nothing.

This is a good occasion to cross-post this song, “Stick Magnetic Ribbons On Your SUV”:

Thankfully, I had no brand awareness of Reynolds, other than hearing the word “Instapundit” folllowed by some ridicule on Air America Radio podcasts we listen to. Now I know. Mkes the feaces I deal with at work seem clean by comparison.

And the opinions expressed on his forum! One posits that we’re “cosseting” the troops by giving them body armour? Another says America could win the war in Iraq by destroying Iranian oil pumping. That’s like saying you could reduce your SUV’s fuel consumption by shooting a tracer bullet through its gas tank. What planet do these people live on? Certainly not the reality-based one…

The bit about Iraq being less violent than Philadelphia is pure genius. As a Philadelphian, I can’t help but feel great pride about this: fucking eat it, Iraq!

And I bet Iraq doesn’t have cheese-steaks either.

@Ivan: This is a good occasion to cross-post this song, “Stick Magnetic Ribbons On Your SUV”

A neighbor once had a “Save Magnetic Ribbons” magnetic ribbon on his SUV.

Ah yes, Instapundit. He’d get more sensible responses holding an Iraq War symposium at a neo-Nazi rally.

I thought neo-conservatism was the american na.. ooops. And to think that all the Arab countries wanted for the last decades was really just plain old democracy and freedom… probably delusional
