Name Calling

So MoveOn ran an ad implying that General Paetreus was "betraying" us. Interesting the senate voted to:

To express the sense of the Senate that General David H. Petraeus, Commanding General, Multi-National Force-Iraq, deserves the full support of the Senate and strongly condemn personal attacks on the honor and integrity of General Petraeus and all members of the United States Armed Forces.

However I remember the anti-war protests seeming to have a better track record of predicting what would happen if we invaded Iraq than the Bush administration. So I thought I'd go looking.

predictions from moveon off of web.archive.org

Instability in the region, and strengthening "islamic fundamentalism" seem like accurate predictions, though the left seriously overestimated the strength of the Iraq army.
