America's Wars and the Progressive Left By: David Horowitz
FrontPageMagazine.com | Tuesday, November 12, 2002

During our lifetimes the so-called "progressive" Left opposed:

 1. The War Against Hitler (until June 1941 when the Soviet Union was attacked) (1939)

 2. The Cold War to save Turkey and Greece from Communist conquest (1947)

 3. The Korean War (to save South Korea from Communist conquest) (1950)

 4. The Vietnam War (to save South Vietnam and Cambodia from Communist conquest) (1964)

 5. The War in Afghanistan to liberate Afghanistan from a Soviet Invasion (1979)

 6. The War in Grenada to liberate the island from a Communist dictatorship (1983)

 7. The War to liberate Central America from Communist dictators and guerillas (1983)

 7. The War in Panama to liberate Panama from the rule of a narco thug (1989)

 8. The Gulf War to liberate Kuwait from Iraqi conquest (1990)

 9. The Balkans War to liberate Kosovo from Serbian rule (1999)

10. The War against the Taliban (2001)

11. The Bush Administration's plan to finish the War to liberate Iraq (2002)

     In other words, the progressive left has opposed every war that America has fought in living memory, and it has found ways to sympathize or actively support every enemy America has faced. What does this unbroken record tell you about the progressive left?
