Is Charles secretly enjoying the bloodshed in Iraq?

One reader writes to ask: "Is Charles really ignoring the bloody disaster which his shilling for the war in Iraq helped bring about, or is he perhaps secretly enjoying the daily news about Americans shooting Arabs, Muslims killing Muslims, and dark-skinned women and children on the other side of the world being blown to pieces as they try to go about their lives. Considering the ever-pertinent question 'Cui bono?' the latter option is perhaps more realistic."

What do you think? Is Charles ignoring the carnage in Iraq because it's uncomfortable for him, or is he gloating?

My view is that Johnson is ignoring the carnage because it doesn't fit into the neo-con portrait of Iraqi liberation.

I think you're missing the far more obvious possibility that Charles eats the bodies of little Muslim children and drinks their blood. Sort of like Jews in the Middle Ages.

Shhhh. you'll get them onto the Protocols of the Elders of LGF!!! They're in league with Haliburton. The men in the black helicopters told me.

Dude, get a life and forget your obsession with Charles.

Steven, you need to read Hugh Fitzgerald on Jihadwatch then. He has a pretty detailed analysis of the situation.

Steven, have you stopped to get the facts about which groups are conducting the acts of carnage? It is my impression that the carnage is predominatley the direct result of the radical Islamics. It is also my impression that most of it is Muslim on Muslim. And, perhaps most importantly, their thurst for blood is not restricted to Iraq. Have you not read about the radical Islamics in Africa, Palestine, Lebanon, Southeast Asia, Afghanistan, Europe, Spain, and England? Have you not read any of the stories about the death threats issued against persons that are publicly critical of Islam or Muhhammud? Have you not seen the deadly riots as a reaction to some cartoons?

My sources are not restricted to LGF or Fox News, there are dozens 100's of web sites and blogs with this information.

While I disagree whole heartly with Steven I respect him for not being cowardly and hiding in anonymity.

Charles isn't bothered in the least by the bloodshed in Iraq. Charles is from southern Cal and as Anne Coulter has pointed out, the violence in Iraq is no worse than that found in L.A. Charles has seen it all man. He's grizzled.

yes Anonymous....Charles revels at every soldier killed and every act of terrorism...I guess that's why he wants the US to win in Iraq instead of just leaving it.....

If we left Iraq today...the real horror would begin...

It's no use saying it's muslim on muslim violence as if we strayed down the wrong alley and suddenly found ouselves in the middle of a gang fight. Yes resentment was already there when the invasion began but Baghdad and many other cities we're safe places for the vast majority of Iraqi people. In our infinite wisdom we declared that baathism was evil, destroying the livliehoods of 100,000s of thousands of people who had no choice but to join the Baath party to keep their jobs. Then we compounded our stupidity and used Shiites and Kurds to go after those Sunnis who understandably resented having their power taken away by an ignorant and brutal invader. If Saddam planted the seeds of the violence we see today, then we watered them most lovingly with the result that Sunnis see Shiites and Kurds as collaborator with the hated Americans. Those motherf***er bastard Iraqis.

A poster asked me to visit jihadwatch. I did. There are some good arguments but I was immediately struck by a thread on Iran’s nuclear ambitions. My question is what does Iran’s nuclear ambition have to do with jihad? Terrorism does exist in various shapes and forms (individual, state etc) but what has this got to do with Ahmedinejad? Where is the evidence that Iran is plotting terrorist attacks against America? There is none. Where are the Iranian aircraft carriers off cape cod? Where are the terrorist attacks planted by shadowy secessionist latinos in LA? Where are the Iranian troops on the Canadian border? Where is the history of Iranian meddling in America's choice of leaders and staging coups? Just who threatens whom? I suspect that jihadwatch wants me to hate Iran because of their support for Hizbollah in its fight with Israel. It’s the usual “Israel’s enemy is my enemy”. Back to Israel as always.

Moreover, are we saying that Iran has no right to nuclear power? What about Iran’s growing population? What about the the electrification of thousands of small Iranian towns and villages? What happens when the oil runs out? Will you insist that Iran return to the stone age (or the pre-stone age since LGF think that Iran is already in the stone age). Again, what does any of this have to do with jihad? What about Iran's sovereignty?
