Iraq - If It's So Bad, Why Aren’t We Pulling Out of Detroit?

Asks Justin Darr.

According FBI crime statistics, Baltimore, Chicago, Detroit, Los Angeles, and Philadelphia, all of which are controlled by the Democratic Party, had a combined total of over 1,900 homicide deaths in 2003 alone. What is their “exit strategy?” Why are they not demanding deadlines from their city councils for an end to all crime fatalities by the end of 2006 or they are going to pack up the police department and move to the suburbs? Why are Democrats so intent to blame President Bush for the continuation of Iraqi insurgency when they cannot even control the insurgency of criminals in their own cities?

Are the police loved by all citizens of these American cities? Far from it. In many of these metropolitan areas, the police are treated with outright hostility by the residents in some areas despite the fact that the cops are only putting their lives on the line to make their towns a safer place to live. Does this mean the Democrats have failed? Does this mean that the police should stop trying to do their jobs? Of course not. To say such a thing is a disservice to the five great cities above and an insult to the hard working people who live there. Just because malcontents and criminals might oppose you does not mean that you have failed, just that you have more work to do. Why should it be any different for our troops in Iraq?

The Democrats will never talk about these numbers because they do not benefit from them politically. They are getting more mileage out of distorting the truth about Iraq than admitting to what it is: A just cause, a noble effort, and an American victory.

Just like they did in Vietnam.
