New York Times For Genocide

The New York Times plumbs new depths of irresponsibility.

As the surge continues to yield good results, as described by its own embedded reporter, Michael Gordon, The New York Times wants the US to hurry up and surrender before the news gets any better, even though, it realizes that genocide will be a likely result.

Americans must be clear that Iraq, and the region around it, could be even bloodier and more chaotic after Americans leave. There could be reprisals against those who worked with American forces, further ethnic cleansing, even genocide. Potentially destabilizing refugee flows could hit Jordan and Syria. Iran and Turkey could be tempted to make power grabs. Perhaps most important, the invasion has created a new stronghold from which terrorist activity could proliferate.

Just wondering, Grey Lady, after this, who would ever want to ally with us again?
