Many on the Left - especially, but not limited to the far Left - have argued that the insurgency in Iraq is a fight against US "occupation". Michael Moore has even referred to al Zarqawi and his terrorists as "freedom fighters" and compared them to the Minutemen of the American Revolution. Today, in a new audio recording, al Zarqawi has declared war
on the Iraqi elections. I wonder how the left can continue to argue that the insurgency is being waged against "occupation", when Zarqawi has now clearly stated his true goal - no democracy in Iraq.
