No Mr. Russert - Britain isn't Spain

Will London now follow Madrid on Iraq war?

MSNBC: The group claiming responsibility has said this is punishment for Britain's involvement in Afghanistan and Iraq. What's the backlash going to be, considering there was already enormous opposition to the war in Iraq among people in Great Britain?

Tim Russert: This is a key question. Remember what happened to Madrid in 2004. The voters of Spain changed governments and withdrew from participation in Iraq. Tony Blair's challenge is the same as George W. Bush's: to try to convince the people of their country that this would happen even more times but for the involvement in Iraq. Link Iraq to the war on terror and suggest that this is part of what they are confronting as a war president and prime minister."

Typical of the MSM to turn a tragedy into a political statement. I knew it was only a matter of time before some idiot in the MSM would make this stupid comparison between Spain's cowardice under fire, and a possible Britain pull out of troops from Iraq.

Mr. Russert needs to talk with people of London today. They've learned a hard lesson. It isn't the appeasement of cowards that will stop terrorists from murdering innocents, they will attack regardless.

Spain pulled it's 1200 or so troops because of a "Political" advantage - winning an election. Tony Blair, like President Bush, has consistently bucked the polls in his country, and despite this, won Britain's election because deep in the heart of every Briton, they know there is right now nobody better at the helm.

Calling Mr. Fitzgerald?

**UPDATED AND BUMPED****

As I told you about in this post yesterday as a source confirmed to me that the Justice Department has launched a probe into the NSA leak. Mr. Risen, you are in trouble - prepare your defense. I told you so.

The White House will be announcing the probe at about 12:30pm. My source tells me that this probe will most likely result in another prosecutor being assigned as of course Fitzgerald is still busy/dizzy on the Plame/Game No-Leak. Additionally, other probes into other recent leaks such as the CIA 'prisons'leak is in the works as well. As I said, this is the NEW Bush - on the attack - it's no more Mr. Nice Guy!

About time! Also covering Michelle Malkin

Newsbusters Busts the MSM on Bush Event

Newsbusters, the blog of Brent Bozell's Media Research Center, exposes the MSM attempt to spin President Bush's meeting with troops into a 'staged event'.

Truth is that the event was not staged, the troops were telling their real feelings: that they support the war and our President.

I guess they might have this story mixed up with the "planted question" to Sec. Rumsfeld back in December 2004.

Yet, that wasn't the case here, Soldiers when asked, will tell you the truth.

Just like in this picture, they tell it like it is!











Michelle Malkin has links to other reactions. Also Blogs for Bush.

UPDATE I: Michelle has a further reponse from one of the soldiers in the video. Here's an excerpt:

"First of all, we were told that we would be speaking with the President of the United States, our Commander-in-Chief, President Bush, so I believe that it would have been totally irresponsible for us NOT to prepare some ideas, facts or comments that we wanted to share …
