Black flag red meat

All it took was some cop wryly describing a couple of fleet-footed border fugitives as "anarchist types" to get them Pajamas (media) all in a wad: OmigodOmigodOmigod the anarchists Omigod they're out there Omigod and they're gonna get us Omigawwwwwwwd!

Errrrr ... yeah.

Body count from the (possibly) anarchist attack on a local military recruitment headquarters of a rogue state which is known to possess weapons of mass destruction and engage in illegal wars of aggression:

Zero. Goose-egg. Zip. Zilch. Nada.

Body count from that rogue state's rogue war on another rogue state which was rumored to possess weapons of mass destruction and hadn't been in any position to engage in any illegal wars of aggression for the previous 12 years:

~10,000 rogue "invadee" troops killed in the invasion.

~4,230 rogue "coalition" troops (including 3,974 American soldiers) killed in the invasion and occupation.

~1,000 rogue "coalition" contractors killed in the occupation.

Depending on whom you believe, somewhere between 50,000 and 1 million civilian casualties of the invasion and occupation.

But of course it's those anarchists who have Michelle Malkin squatting and peeing herself in abject terror.

That's how it is with the Republican Surrealists, of course -- this week some publicity-seeking knothead's friggin' smoke damage is 9/11 all over again. Next week, we'll be back to "not a single domestic attack in seven years, guys, and all you had to sacrifice were ten trivial little amendments. Stay the course -- if we don't fight them over there, we'll end up fighting them in Times Square."
