"The Surge" and the media

Ace has a great post on this.

This isn't entirely new. The liberal media didn't want to admit that the "devastating arms race" defeated the Soviets either, and that peace through strength actually worked.

Then the libmedia spin was "the Soviets were falling apart anyway", even though those who predicted the Soviet collapse in the '80s were ridiculed by the very same libmedia.

Remember how Gorbachev ended the Cold War (snicker)?

Even better: "The Democrats were behind Reagan every step of the way".

Well, *I* understand that, but our lame mainstream media did not, and still does not.

Thank you for reading!
