Left-wing gadfly Michael Moore brags that he has had a camera team in Iraq interviewing rank-and-file soldiers. He asserts he is a friend of the basic infantryman.
Those soldiers should know that Mr. Moore looks on the people killing them not as terrorists, but as freedom fighters. In other words, Mr. Moore views you as the oppressors, not Saddam Hussein's collection of fedayeen henchmen and internal security thugs.
Mr. Moore wrote this in April:
"The Iraqis who have risen up against the occupation are not 'insurgents' or 'terrorists' or 'the enemy.' They are the revolution, the Minutemen and their numbers will grow — and they will win."
By the way, after Osama bin Laden's terrorists flew planes into the Twin Towers and the Pentagon, killing thousands, Mr. Moore, who has become the darling of the Democratic Party, wrote that America had it coming.
"We, the United States of America, are culpable in committing so many acts of terror and bloodshed that we had better get a clue about the culture of violence in which we have been active participants," he said on his Web site.
